on the supreme court in the follow
ing captious remarks:
AVoman BUliYnKC lias proved a
practical failure in Washington Tcr
rltorv. It lniH accomnlished notli-
Ing in the way of public or prlvnte
giKMl. There Imve been no moral,
social or political reforms as a conse
quence of it. On the other liana it
has made dimension and trouble
every where. After n fair trial Its
most uncompromising opponents are
among the women themselves. As
a rule modest and good women have
not voted at least not the second
time while vicious women and
women of the coarser class have
been vulgarly conspicuous at the
This Is simply ex parte; it Is the
talk of a mini who is evidently
prejudiced ugalnst the innovation.
The charge that woman suffrage
has accomplished no good Is a mere
conclusion, determined by how a
nerson views the matter. It lias
had no fair trial In that territory,
and tho lime Is not yet to pronounce
on its intrinsic merits. That old
chesinits, mouldy and worm-eaten,
that modest women do not vote, has
had its rottenness expo-ed in tho
ycal and elan shown by our fair
coiinlrywomeii In several states
when the authority to take part in
elections has been accorded them.
In Kansas "modest and good wom
en," to use the limiting adjectives
of our cotcm, brought out dilatory
sisters to the register's olllec, and
when election day came they estab
lished their headquarters contiguous
to every polling place, and dining
tho day hnd their vehicles plying
wherever n lardy voter was to be
found. Reactionary politicians mid
uewspaper writers may miumj fric
tion and discord, but (hey will have
lo give way lo the advancing tide of
reform. The progressive people of
WashliiKlon Territory demand to
keep up with the procession, and
old fogies and recaleltranls cannot
much longer defeat (heir will.
Press dispatches u few days ago
tell of an unfortunate condition of
crops In Northwestern Iowa and
Southern Dakota. In Jowa, wo are
told, tho small grains will average
less than a ono-thlid yield; In many
counties the rust has ruined the
wheat, and oats In more than half
tho fields will not bo cut. And In
Holds where tho grain hud grown
well It has been twisted and beaten
down bv violent stornw. Kansas
and Nebraska have fared Is'tter
than In the two or three years
preceding; the small grains have
been saved In good condition, and
several copious showers through the
hot mouths have brought the corn
along finely. Hut private letters
from KaiiNis tell of extreme boat
there, and the fear Is exprewed lost
the corn nitty sutler from scorching.
This is In vivid contrast with the
luippy condition of things In Oregon.
