Motherhood and
Political Activity
(Suffrage and W. 0. T. U. leader from
Goodland, Kansas, now determinedly
campaigning for election to the
United States congress.)
BY EVA MORLEY MURPHY.
Vnlike many of my. youthful compan
ions I iiicveHtoished tfj bo a boy. As a
mature woman I have always been
satisfied with my sex.
To be a woman with a woman's in
tuitions, sympathies, understanding t
other women's problems and a heart
big enough to desire to help all woman
hind has always seemed to mo a moat
desirable lot in life. To add to this
the experience of wifehood and mother
hood ought to make any normal woman
thankful to her Creator for tho great
Tespousibiltios and blessings he has
bestowed upon her.
Motherhood, especially is a refining
experience in even tho most frivolous
existence, and in a woman of earnest
ness of purpos-i who realizes that life
is an opportunity for helpfulness to as
large a circle as her influence can reach
motherhood may reach out to encircle
the whole race in her protecting arms.
I am glad I am a woman
mother and a grandmother.
1 do not remember a time in my life,
however, when I did not believe that
women should have a voico in the gov
ernment and regulation of the affairs
of the nntion. I have always been In
favor of woman svffrago. I believe
that the franchise is a broadening ex
perience for women. My bsart has
often been stirred by tho wrong and
injustice inflicted on the weak and
poor, whether man or woman, and again
and again I have said, "If women
were helping to mako tho laws for the J
family of this nation such injustices
would not be."
In the campaign for crpinl suffrage
which resulted in giving the ballot to
to Kansas women in 1!H'.', I spoke for it
and organized the women in several
counties. But I had no political bee
in my bonnet while bo doing nor Binco.
I have simply bo desirous that the
woman's viewpoint of legislation should
be adequately represented in our legis
lature and in the halls of congresB.
Strangely enough it was a man and
not a woman who first made the sug
gestion to me that I should become a
candidate. My experience so far in the
campaign, which is just beginning,
leads me to the conclusion that the
men of tho progressive party are in
earnest in their declared sentiments
regarding wonian suffrage and are not
only .willing but desirous of sharing
the responsibilities of government with
women. And it is quite within the
possibilities that KansaB may be the
first stato to send a woman to con
gress. While I have not made any
arrangements yet for a house in Wash
ington, I am determined to conviu.-c
any who may be skcntical that I reaily
can read and understand, at IcaBt as
well as the average mn, the problems
of legislation.
We women, like Mary of old, have
kept many things and pondered them
in our hearts. Of late years wo have
talked tkcm over in our clubs and other
meetings. Wo have listened patiotnly
to the political orator, have read widely
and thoroughly and most of us ba"e
formed some conclusions. We have
boen preparing ourselves for tho fran
a wifo alol"He e Kuew "as 10 " vu'"-
i believe we snail use mo oauoi uh
wisely as men do. I think wo shall
form a larger independent class of
voters than the country has yet had.
Large numbers aro already trained,
through the altruistic work of tho Wo
man 's Christian Temperance union and
our federated clubs to accept defeat an 1
not be discouraged. Hence it is rea
sonable to antnicipnte tl.at women will
work and vote for measures that may
not have an immediate prospect of
success rather than to bend their ener
gies toward party victory.

All I need is sum funds db a few braiv

Ha, ha, sed Ma. Ha, ha, ha.
Do you laff wen yure husband is on

Vou do not seem to rcelizo that I am

I have my plane so far advanced tint
I am now going down town to see if I
can get sum rich man interested in the

of the braivest men in tho city to 0

Oh, shaw, sed Ma, doant tell mo,

Asserts Attempt to Show Prosperous
Condition in Shingle Mills Not
Backed Up By Actual Facts.
rjNiTiD pbsss leased wiai.
Washington, March 19. Representa
tive Humphrey, of Washington, today
accepted the challenge of democrats to
prove his statement that Secretary of
Commerce Redfield had "falsified" in
a letter to congress , his investigator's
finding on conditions in the Washington
shingle industry.
He charged that the investigator hao
used "the disreputable and contempti
ble method" or "reporting behind an
onymous witnesses," and criticised the
secretary fcr accepting such evidence.
Quoting freely from the investigat
or's report and from parallel refer
ences in this letter Redfield Bent to
congress, Humphreys declared he hap"
pioved conclusively that the main
statements of Redfield wqre contradic
ted in the report.
"An ex parte statement based on
pnonymous evidence," he said, "is used
only by cowards, character assassins
and expert political investigators."
Redfield said that stagnation in the
hingle industry was not mainly attrib
utable to tariff to removal, as Hum-
ihrcy charged on the floor some time
ago, Humphrey today averred that Red-
field's own investigator had shown con-c'nsively:
That 60 per cent of the Washington
shingle mills were closed; that the
British mills openod when the tariff
wall was removed; that in December the
state had more idle men than ever before.
"It is hard to toll whether this inves
tigator was blindly partial, intention
ally dishonest or just an ordinary as
sissin," Humphrey remarked, after
Hedfield 's discrepancies.
Incidentally he walloped the demo'
cratic domestic and foreign policies,
"Everywhere the country is suffering
from tho democratic administration. The
souphouse has started, Such is tho con
dition at home after ouo year of dem
ocratic rulo, under the benign influence
of tho 'new freedom.'
"Our foreign policy has becomo a
national disgrace. We stand distrusted,
discredited, our prestige destroyed
abroad and frantic effort iB being made
to cover up the egotistical stupidity of
this administration with tho Hay-Pauu-cefeto
treaty. To such low estate havo
we fallen that at tho prico of self
respect we aro trying to purchase
friendship. In this day, as we look at
conditions at home and abroad, it has
become indeed a proud distinction to
be an American citizen."
