with its rose bordered path is an orchard

"Before I take you through the dairy
barns," said Mr. Thompson, "I want to
show you something of this farm. I
bought it a few years ago for US an
acre. There are about' 435 acres here.
It was very much in the rough rail

may seem to have very little to do with
mannings dairy ranch; but It all makes

- Whereas, there are many "school dis
tricts that are unable to properly main

betterment of schools - throughout ths
state, , and suggest that said board con

Denver, Oct. 18. Up to a late hour
tonight no further outbreak had been
reported in the Southern Colorado coal

By V. W.

suffrage movement in New York city,
is spending a few days here visiting
her mother and sister. Early this week
Mrs. Gabriel and her mother will leave
for California, where they will pass
the winter.
Mrs. Gabriel spent several weeks In
Oregon last year taking a prominent
part in the suffrage campaign by speak
ing In Portland and neighboring eitles,
Biie returned east full of enthusiasm
over the ostcome of the campaign here
and has been giving, muoh of her time
to furthering the interests of sufrrage
In New York.
"And now we New York , women are
hoping, yes even expecting, to have
suffrage by 1816. I am very proud to
belong to the oldest woman ' suffrage
organisation In the United States, the
New York State Woman Suffrage or
ganisatlon, which was started more than
twenty years ago by Susan B. . Anthony,
Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucy B.
Stone, and now we feel that the task
so snlendldlvi begun by those women
Is nearly finished. Never before has
sentiment been so strong for suffrage
as it is today. '
"That famous march of ths New
York suffragettes to Washington was
a history maker. Every state in the
Union was represented at that great
gathering and our reception at tho
hands of the senators in the great mar
ble hall was nothing short of an In
spiration. Representatives of each
state presented a petition to the senate
asking - that body to act favorably on
the amendment to the constitution fa
voring equal suffrage throughout the
United States. I had the honor of car
rying the New York petition. All of
these petitions were presented to your
Senator Chamberlain.
"More than twenty-five of the sena
tors. Including Senator Lane, spoke in
favor of the bill. Senator La Follette
said in the course of his speech that
when the bill came up he would ask
the privilege of answering all argu
ments against it. Senator Lewis, of
Illinois, and the senators from Michi
gan and Ohio were among those mak
ing most enthusiastic speeches. Sen
ator Owen, of Oklahoma, generally .con
ceded to be the most . handsome man In
the senate, admitted that there was
nothing for the senators to do but fall
In line with the suffrage movement In
the evening there was a banquet with
covers for 400. Mrs. Champ Clark and
Mrs. LaFollette were among the Wash

"A splendid work is also being done
by Maud Miner at the Waverly Home, ,
where girls who sre found to be taking ,
the first steps downward are cared for.
Many of them are girls who are ruj
nln gaway from home, others are wlt
nM . in white slave cases. An or
ganised effort is made to protect glrla
who are employed .' at nigni or urn y
otherwise in danger in any way. ,-
"The minimum wage and white Slav,
ery are closely related, for Instance in
the Bedford ; f eformatory, where girls
are sent' for a period of three years. ,
Out of 600 girls whose statistics Were
taken. 40 per cent had not passed the
fourth grade In the' public schools. One
of the moBt gigantic problems facing ,
the American people today is the lac ;
of efficiency in-the publio school sys
tem in not preparing our boys and girls
to be self supporting. The domestlo
courses are fitted only for people of;
large Incomes. What we want is to
snow how to live within our Incomes,
most of which are small, i, The whole
system is, according to my knowleJg,
run for show rather than to train chil
dren for the every day duties and respon
sibilities of Ufe. MIf our girls were
trained to care for a modest home, cook:
plain food, sew and Tear children, they -would
then be prepared either for mar
riage or to earn a living wage," "
