While the average man may not take
the local women's club of which hie
wife is a member any more eeriously
than to protest mildly when there is a
clash In domestic arrangements, a con
vention of the Federation of Women's
Clubs Is an event Of deep import to
every qltlsyi who would keep abreast of
the most pronounced movement of' re
cent years. In the sociological sense
this Is woman's age. The woman polit
ical and soclsl Is here, means to stay
and must be reckoned with.
Time waa when the comic Journal pic
tured women's meetings as terrorised
by the advent of a mouse and demoral
ised by the appearance-of a member in
a garment announced as a trophy from
a bargain aale.
The sex has changed all that. A
mouse has still Us terrors and a bar
gain sale Us magnetic attraction, but
in convention assembled women are as
businesslike and parliamentary as men
more so than many men In polftleal
For proof of the sex'a adaption to
the demands of public deliberative as
semblies we only need turn to tho pro
ceedings of the Council of the General
Federation of Women's Clubs now being
held in this city. However random the
various discussions may become In the
main convention, the officers chosen for
executive and advisory duties display a
keen sense of essentials and time
values. The speeches were short and to
the point and there was a healthy op
position to the proposal for a reorgani
zation of the whole federation. Evi
dently the council would proceed by
gradual amendment In preference to
Brevity In speech Is not usually cred
ited to women and it is not the least
sifnificant sign of the radical changes
wrought by public life in women that
there was no desire for a superfluous

It waa recognized that the biennial

conventions hove become unwieldy and
tha council seems to have been well ad
vised in suggesting -a reduction of del
egates as against the scheme for cre

The chief item for general 'discus
sion will ba that of the suffrage and
the Issue whether or not the federation
should commit itself for or against. Ex
tremists on both aides are keen for a
declaration, but there are many pros
and antla who contend that the best in
terests of the federation are best served
by an attitude of neutrality toward all
party political questions. There are o
many reforms upon which women of
all shades of political opinion are united,
it is perhaps wiser that they should be
fought for and (Secured before adding a
plank which must - necessarily -divide
forces snd possibly lose many members
and affiliated bodies. And this without
regard to the merits of the Issue. .
However, this commendation of the
work of the federation would have no
point if It left ths Implication that dele

women of ths state have been Interest
ing themselves In tha various Chautau
qua. They no doubt are beginning to
realise what a splendid place it Is to
promote club Ideas and make known
the value and utility of a woman's club.
It Is too early to have returns from
distant aasemblles, but Gladstone park
Is simply booming. If any ona wants
to know what la in the personnel of a
committee, or believes one person can
do a thing just aa well as another, they
can satisfy themselves by going to the
headquarters of ths Oregon Federation
of Women's Clubs and to ths Portland
woman's club tent at Gladstone and
observing ths fine and efficient work
of Mrs. M. A. Dalton, who for more
than 10 years has taken charge of, these
headquarters. Mrs. Dalton is ona of the
women to whom being on a committee
means taking charge of the work as
signed her, and doing it faithfully and
well, The Chautauqua committee means
work, and good hard work, both of
brain and hand, but It has never de
terred Mra. Dalton, and her headquar
ters are always the first to be ready for
the reception of gueata.
No attempt is being made this year
to rent cots, but the headquarters are
well supplied with cote and easy chairs
for visitors to rest. The tent is large
and airy and closs In, that olub women
may leave their wraps or baskets and
feel sure they are aafe, for Mrs. Dal
ton's watchful eye Is upon everything,
though the federation eannot hold Itself
responsible for things of value that are
left. .

Suffrage has several times been be.
fore the voters of the state, but never In
Just the same way and under the same
circumstances, for then neither Wash

women to political equality, thereby
putting upon the men of the state such
an obligation. To make them see that
it is an obligation, and to show that
the earnest, representative women of
the state really want the ballot will be
one of the efforts of woman's day at
Chautauqua next Tuesday.
One of the great women of the coun

of the session. No club wman can af

Philadelphia, July 13. Plans of several
philanthropic citizens to organize a loan
society to protect the public against rob
bery by loan sharks has been approved
by Mayor Blankenburg. It Is proposed
to make loans to worthy persons at a
moderate rate of Interest, and thus drive
the loan sharks out of business.
"I am In hearty sympathy with auch
a movement," said the mayor. "I at
tempted to organUe such a company In
189). We had a company incorporated
for 1100,000, of which ITS. 000 waa paid
In. We attempted to obtain permission
from the legislature to lend money at
1 per cent a month.. The bill was be
fore three legislatures. Once it passed
the senate and once the house. The
tllrd time it passed both bodies, but
wai Vetoed by Governor Hastings.
"The pawnbrokers and money. loan
agencies opposed the bill. I am told
that they had a large fund to fight Us

ernor Hastings when I say this.
