SUFFRAGE IS A FAILURE.

country ever had, for many years
ono of the most ardent ndvonatcB of
erptal righta for. womeu, and n
prominent figure at every woman's
rights convention in the early days
ot the movement, declares that suf
frage lias been a failure, and ex
presses her belief that! the country
ih not ready lor female votes aud
will not be for some time.
Miss Cousins declared that the
Huf'fragistH got off on the wrong
track. She defended Reed Smoot
ngainst his female opponents and
said that the suffragists, in lighting
Smoot, vvoro trying to mix church
with state, iicondition which should
never be tolerated.

District of Columbia, Miss Cousins
says that it would bo absurd to es

ORECON S REFORMS WORLD WIDE
Citizens of Swcedcn Wants to Know
About Initiative and Rcfe.
That the eyes of the world am
fixed on Oregon is no mere ctheiciil
Ulream ot tlie enthusiastic booster.
Not only are Oregon h great and
undeveloped resources enticing to
hundreds of emigrants but the
great governmental reforms the
Heaver state has inaugurated are
no lesB attractive to foreign diplo
mats and publicists.
Another instance was noted in a
letter received by (loveAior Cham
berlain from far away liweedon.
The missive sought inloimalion rel
ative to the initiative and referen
dum ancl more particularly on its
effoct on political parties. The in
formation is sought by Otto tlrond
luud of Stockholm, who is connect
ed with the Central Bureau of Sta
tistics of Sweodcn. Ho ntates that
he is preparing a tieatiso on the
subject and that ho has learned
that the two measures had been
adopted by tho Oregon legislature
and that he wished to know moro
of their practical application.
