managed with a definite end in view,
accomplish something closely akin to a
world revolution. Already these and
other women, including yourself, have
, done and are doing much toward the fur
therance of philanthropic enterprises,
hut there are possibilities far beyond
mere phllanthophy. This Wealth, if
pooled for the purpose and managed
with intelligence, is potentially capable
of conquering some of the great national
.evils, and notably some of those called
directly or indirect lv with tha nriiin.i
methods with modern finance and the
admission of great enterprises.
'These in the hands of representatives
often scarcely subject to supervision
, have in the past doubtless been often
used for purposes of which the women,
had they been cognizant of them, would
certainly have, disapproved. Through
this organization It ia hoped and be
lieved that this condition of affairs can
to a considerable extent be conquered."
, iews or me proposed organization
of rich women reached Wall street for
the first time Friday and carried con
sternation to the several officers of
more than one' great corporation. The
women can, if they go at it earnestly,
upset many well laid plans none dares
deny, and they seem to have gone at
it In 'a businesslike, earnest manner
iiaeiy 10 accomplish real results.
At present details of the matter are
being guarded with the utmost care.
Within a week or two definite knowl
edge of the scheme of organization and
the names of those who have beyond
doubt Joined it, will doubtless be in
the hands of financial leaders: In the
meantime, they are waiting with con
siderable anxiety for the information.
Subject for Speculation.
What such an alliance mle-ht accom
plish Is Indeed an interesting subject
for speculation.
It is doubtful if anything in the way
of male capitalists representing such
vast interests has ever been formed in
this or any other country; it is cer
tain that many of the women are anx
ious to put the mlghtly fortunes left
them by their husbands to good use,
It is sure that many of them are dls
guested by the ineffectiveness of mucn
of, the philanthropic work accomplished
by- the- vast endowment watofc have
been bequeathed by others to various
institutions and movements and are
anxious to discover some manner in
which they may make sure that their own
great fortunes, not only during this
life time but after they have passed
away, win accomplish more for the
real good of humanity. And it Is , be
lieved that mn n V nf them hflua ilronftv
