WHAT WOULD THEY
DO WITH IT?
What Part of th Work of Governmanl
Would Women Do Any Bettar Than
Men? "Taxation Without Rep
mentation" an Argument Dan
gerous to Its Advvcatee.
The one argument npon which the .
srtyocates of woman suffrage fall bac
being unanswerable Is that women
are taxed without representation. Thla
would seem to mean that whoever la
taxed shovrtd have a vote, and the only
conclusion of thia reasoning la that
whoever la not taxed should not vote.
If the argument la worth anything; It
must mean that.
"I own property," says a woman who
feeks to be. a voter, "and I pay taxea .
on It, and I cannot think that taxation
without representation Is Just"
This plea has been repeated so often
that It is time to point out Its fallacy.
There are two kinds of taxes a mon
ey tax and a service tax. The money
tax is levied on property, man's and
women's alike, pro rata. The service
tax Is levied on men alone. It calls
for Jury service, police service, military
service, and every man takes his
chances on it ,
Sometimes one goes through his sev
enty years without suffering from ft
at all. -Again, be spends weary hours

of taxation and not with the other.
Property Is protected by' the govern
ment, as women are. But property, .
whether man's or woman's, has no rep
resentation. If it had, it must necessarily be In

Without this protection our possesj

- The suffragists appear to thinS they
dispose of this consideration when they
tpeak of men who are "exempt"' from
military service and still vote. The Im
mediate answer is that there is no real
All the men are liable, but when 11
happens that, the government in an .
emergency does not need all at once It
takes Its pick and speaks of the others
as "exempt" It may" at first call only
for the men under twenty-five, but
When more are wanted It rinaa nnt hna.

But even this is not the root of the
Question. For regular service In
long campaign the government would
not take a man forty-five years of aga

many as it wanted who were but
twenty-five and had strong lungs.
But suppose the weak lunged man of

Touth or age, lungs or no lungs, that
man is a power to bo reckoned with;
and this is why he is allowed to vote,
in order that when the ballots are
counted be may see that be and hla
kind are In tho minority and It would
be hopeless for them to attempt an
overthrow of the government '
