The lobby of the postofflce presented
a novel sight yesterday afternoon,
when the first duties of pitching tents
and furnishing them had been perform

to their mother, others to their wives,
and those who had sweethearts did
not forget them. The writing desk,
the registry department shelf, the win
dow where stamps are delivered, and
even the rest below the boxes, not to
mention the windows, were filled with
the soldier boys' letters, where the
writers elbowing each other, accompan
ied their attitude to the position of
the desk on which they happened to
write. The first comers made a pre
tence of style, with pen, ink and suita
ble paper; next were the boys writing
with Indelllble pencil on note paper
which was plastered against the wall,
while the unmarried youths struck a
romantic devotional attitude on one
knee and scribbled away with an ordi
nary pencil on a postal card.

The right to vote and the rltfht to
hold property both originally depended
on the ability to right.
A few day ago at a meeting of the
opponent of equal suffrage In New
York, the statement was once more
made that women should not be allow
ed to vote because they cannot fight.
Tli's argunn nt ha Ix eii used many
times and refuted many times, but, like
other fallacies. It die hard.
It is a survival from the days when
flKhtlng was the most honorable calling
in life, when it was the main business
for noblemen and even fr kings. Thnt
it should still urvle In our own peace
ful and Industrial age. when the ef
fort ot civHIiid imtnkind Is to prevent
wars, whether public or prlate, la one
of those anomalli which can only le
explained by the f.u t that e are all
of us, more or less. Inconsistent.
If the ability to fight Is to be the
test of the abllliy to vote, then the
ballot should only be given to men
within the fighting age namely, from
IS tu to or 45 years. This would de
prive us of th wise counsels of the
men over 43 years of age. a depriva
tion which could 111 afford.
The Idea that the ballot Cannot be
given to women because they are not
fighters is a survival of feudalism, of
a military age and cast of thought.
But In feudal times the right to hold
property also depended upon the abil
ity to fight for It. The feudal lord
hell their estates directly from th
king, and, In lieu of rent, they did mil
itary svrvic, Th.y agreed to provide
thtir royal master with a certain num
ber of fighting men In tlm of war,
each lord appearing at the head of hi
little army unless disabled by age or
Infirmity. But In order to provide the
required quota of soldiers, each earl
or baron called upon those next be
neath him In rank, who held their
lands from him and in their turn rais
ed a band of fighting men. In a word,
the title to real estate was given to
him who could fight In hi own per
son and In those of his followers. Yet
even in these days, women sometimes
held lands and were allowed to send
If anyone now should attempt to say
that women could not hold property
because they could not fight, nor bring
a band of fighting followers Into the
neid, everyone would say "What anti
quated rubbish Is this? Everyone'
property is defended by the police and
In ruse of need by the army." And
yet those who pride themselves upon
their logic, solemnly tell us that wom
en must not vote because the vote, In
a by-gne military age, depended upon
the ability to fight.
