a cnusidenible degree the solid, sub
stantial, and really effective eumpaign
work being dime in F.nglniul by the

of Mrs. I'linlihurst 's visit to American,

make intelligent comparison between

the policies, methods and aims of the
two antagonistic camps, Mrs. Millicent
(1. Fawcett, leader of the non-militant,
has piepnred for tho t'l'itcd I're.'s the
following article!
"The National I'nion of Women's
Suffrage Societies is the largest, the
oldest nud ah we believe, the best or
ganized mllriigp society In the I'nited
Kingdom, It is non party In character,
in the cure that it welcomes among its
members sympathizers with all political
parties or with nonp, It is, and always
has been strict in its methods of work.
The tion-mllitmit character of tho na
tional union is a matter nut only of ex
pediency but also of priuciple.
''Wo believe that the best mothod of
promoting the surer of our cause is to
appeal to what is the highest and best
in man, and not to what is worst; to

Washington, Oct. 23. Cipher mes

today reported tho Mexican situation
extremely serious. It was denied that
intervention was under consideration.

two terms. It was said he feared to
surrender his power to another for u

Dallas, Tex., Oct. 23. A dispatch to
a newspaper hero today declares that
Monterey, Mexico, is surrounded by eon

" Moreover, in those cmintrieH and

,h,.s been won it has beeen won as tho
'result of peaceful propaganda. I need

What Do You Think of

It is understood that Julius Krntt

Operation of the Southern Pacific will
be in the city this evening or tomorrow.
It is for thiB reason that The Capital
Journal today runs a cut of tho South

simplo reason that the company persist
ently overlooks it and does not have a

to save all their energies for the

old cowbam has been faithful to all of
them, as it promises to bo to the gener

Ims been modest in its demand, too. One

granito sand has been all it over re

blocks further from tho street car lines
now than it was 10 years ago, and do
spite its age anil decrepitude it still
does its duty uncomplainingly and to

its fault that tho city has grown away

It was admitted that there seemed
small likelihood of finding moru surviv

taking no chat s. They wore detor

Most of those who still lived were
Horribly burned. The bodies of tho
dead were charred beyond recognition.

main until tint searchers had satisfied
themselves there were no moro still
