Women's Suffrage
Paper Read by
Geo. H. Hougham
Tho following Interesting paper on
Wo mens Suffrage wuh read belore ilie
Knox Literary mul Debating Society
un Wednesday last hy Mr. Geo.
Hougham. Tho paper wnn received
hy thc membera with close at ton tlon
and, hy tho discussion thnt took
place at tho close of tho addresB tho
membera woro forcibly ImproBnsd hy
tbo weight of some or the arguments
brought  forward.
In tho sphere of current topics,
thefe i» I suppose no subject that
has forced itself upon public attention wilh greater insistence than the
question wo are considering tbln evening.
It is well, I think, thnt the young
people of to-day should consldor thin
question seriously, for upon tho
young people of today will fall the
burden of the citizenship of tomorrow, nnd there are undoubtedly ladles here present thin evening who in
a fow years' time will find themselves the possessors of franchise
privileges, a privilege which like all
"privileges, enrries with it a corresponding responsibility,
In these days in which wc live,
days so full of impending change,
the border days between thc disestablishment of the old order and the
establishment of the new, there is
surely no more significant sign of
the times thnn the emergence of
Her claim for the vote is but a
symbol of this emergence, a sign
that she bas so emerged, a demand
that this omorgence shall be recognized.
One of tbe most convincing proofs
of tbe justice of thiH claim is to he
found, I think, in the fact that it is
acknowledged by all sorts and conditions of people, the rich, the poor,
Tory, Liberal, Socialist, Justice
must necessarily transcend party
lines, national characteristics, and
religious differences, and although
there may he widely divergent views
IU to ■.■\peliniicy and methods, the
inherent justice of the woman's
claim is attested by its universality.
This justice may be fos a time
partially obscured by the heats of
controversy in which invariably numerous nnd conflicting side issues
become identified with the main ques
tion but ultimately justice must triumph, and personally, 1 regard the
"arrival of woman" if I may so coin
n phrase, as one of the most hopeful
signs of the times, a sign that the
race Is really progressing onward
and upward.
If, however, the advocates of woman suffrage are to be found among
all peoules and parties, so also are
its opponents, and although many of
its opponents oppose from selfish mo
tlvea having good reason to fear the
day whon women shall be politically
and economically free, while yet others oppose from frivolous and shallow motives, yet there are unqnostion
ably intelligent people who advance
intelligent reasons for their opposition to the extension of frnnch.se to
women, prominent among whom mny
he mentioned Mrs. Humphry Wnrd,
the famous novellist nnd almost oq-
ua'ly famous settlement worker. If
we are to hnve nn intelligent undor-
Standing of the ense for woman suffrage, it will nlso be necessary for
us to have nu Intelligent understanding of the case against,  and  1  will
therefore endeavor within the limitations of a short paper like this to
meet Hfttuc of these objections.
.Most, prominent among them is I
think the [ilea that woman't plnce
is the home. There aro some people
who advance this in a vague sort of
way as being the last and ouly word
on woman's sphere. They claim
some kind of Divine sanction for this
argument too, on the assumption
that Ood created man to govern and
woman  to serve.
There are others again who repent
tho formula, "Woman's place is the
homo," a trifle more thoughtfully,
people who are afraid that the entrance of woman into active political life will coarsen th?m, rob them
of tho essential refinement peculiar
to true womanhood.
I wlll try to deal with these two
Regarding the tirst argument, I
appeal to a very high authority on
tho sphere of true womanhood, no
less nu authority then John Ruskin
the prophet of tho 18th  century.
Ho says, "And not less wrong,
her haps more foolishly wrong ia the
idea thnt. woman is only the shadow
and attendant image of her lord,
owing him a thoughtless and servile
This I say is the most foolish of
all errors respecting hcr who wns
mnde to be the helpmate of man.
As if he could he helped effectively
hy a shadow or worthily by a slave.
Hut even if we grant the truth of
the argument that woman's place is
the home, and it is part of a true
statement, it is rightly claimed that
this constitutes one of the most
powerful arguments for the extension of tbe franchise to women, for
modern politics is more and more
concerning itself with th? home.
More and more the governments of
our civilization are finding themselves compelled to legislate on matters tha£ intimately concern the
What more intimately concerns tbe
home than the questions of Free
Trade and  Protection ?
The lumber of which your home is
built is a question that very intimately concerns the woman who lives
in it, seeing that the manufacturers
of it are agitating all the time for
a heavy duty on all lumber imported
from the States, while practically
everything you eat, drink and wear
is the subject of legislation either in
the Provincial House or at Ottawa.
Woman's place is the home, and
the business of the State is to preserve the home as the basis on which
all great nationhood is built.
It is because the modern woman
clearly recognizes this fact that she
is asking for the privilege of helping
to decide the questions that affect
the home.
Woman's sphere as the home includes the children who grow up in
the home, and legislation long ago
cc ncerned Itself with the child when
it insisted that every child should be
educated in the State school. The
woman who sends her child to the
Mate school has a right to assist
In determining what sort of an education her child shall receive when
it gels .there, and she can only exercise this right by means of tbe vote.
Woman's place Is the borne, and
whnt more intimately affects the
home than the conditions of her hus
band's employment, the wages he receives. All lahor disputes are questions thnt affect women very materially, as she very  soon finds out

Good Roads.
Good roads, pood schools, good churches all
cost money to maintain, and that money is contributed by the tax p.-;ycr3 of this community. If
you spend a dollar here, part of it at least, remains
in the hands of one of those tax payers. It does
Its share toward malting this a better place to live
If you send yonr dollar away you are doing
just that much to hint your town, its schools,

Overseas Club
Thu monthly business meutlng of
tin1 ovivi-hi'hb Olub was held ln tho
Maple Hall on May 12th, when a
Kuoil number of tb? members turned
out. A whist drive followed the hus
iness, and light refreshments were
Borved. Tbe winners of tbe whist
drive were Mrs. Tlsdale und Mr.
Wi'athcrhill. Bongs were contributed during tho evening by the follow
Ing. Mrs. Or. Kennedy, Mr. G,
Hougham and Mr. J. Hlms, which
wero very much appreciated by all
present. The Committee in charge
were Mr. and Mrs. Whlttaker, who
discharged their duties in their usual good manner.
The Overseas Club are arranging
for their third annual Empire Day
celebration, which will be held on
May 2.1th, Inviting all thc school anil
other smnll children of the city to
gitther together at the Government
Ilullding at 1.30 p.m. when putrlotic |
addresses will be delivered to tbem
by some of tbe best speakers in the
district, after which the children will
be marched to tho Rex theatre when
a free patriotic picture show will bo
given. Mr. Johnson, the manager of
tbis theatre has gone to considerable trouble in getting patriotic pic-
#ro9 for that day.
Candles, oranges, etc., will be given to earh child as they leave the
theatre, hy the Ladies' Committee.
In the evening a dance will bo given in the Auditorium, tickets $1.0
per couple and 50 cents for single
ladies. Refreshments will bo served.
Music by the Cranbrook Orchestra.
Dancing to commence nt 21.30k. It
Is hoped that all citizens will patronize this dance, ob it is being oat
on to help defray the expenses ot entertaining the children that day.
Fatal Drowning at
In some unaccountable manner on
Sunday last, Miss Palethorpe of
Wardner, (ell in the reservoir and
was drowned. The accident occurred
ahbut 10,00 o'clock and was not discovered until about 3-30 In the afternoon. The remains were interred on
Tuesday, undertaker McPherson having charge of the funeral arrangements.
when her husband goes out on strike
and she is compelled to go out to
work to buy the necessities of life.
Woman's place is the home, and
seeing that she has to spend so much
of her time there, she is intimately
concerned with all questions of sanitation, and housing, and it iB the
absence of her direct influence in
these matters which iB largely responsible for the disease epidemics,
and the frightful infant mortality in
our great cities.
Men have hitherto had the sole say
in these matters and have been guided by motives of private profit or
political expediency.
Woman's place is certainly the
home, and the home will he a better
place when her right to assist in determining the questions that affect
the home is acknowledged and she is
greeted there as a comrade instead
of a domestic servant.
Now with regard to the people who
regard women's entrance into political life as a menace to woman herself, a danger to her womanhood,
something different has to he said.
The tlrst and really the only necessary answer that need to be mnde to
this argument is that where women
have been granted the franchise,
these fears have been proved to be
After all, what a* curious argument it. is to advance. Is there
something morally deteriorating in
politics ?
Logically and plainly stnted, the
argument amounts to this: that the
sphere of politics which has been for
so long man's special and private
preserve han become sa unspeakably
corrupt under his incompetent management that it is not fit for a woman to enter.
If this Is true, nnd I nm afraid
that (t is to a very great, extent,
then iti is certainly high time that
a cleansing process wns Inaugurated,
and ie is this process that women
nropose to inaugurate, n process
that their opponents of n certain
class fear, and with good reason.
The granting of tbe franchise to
women will so far from detracting
from their womanhood, a*ld to, and
enohte It,, as It will increase her

the Indifferent woman whose sphere
Is hounded by'fo'T walls, and lh»

A Stroke of National
Mr. Borden has taken one of Sir
Wilfrid's wrecked railways and will
make it a real transportation system. While rehabilitating this rond
lie 'hns secured for the people of Can
ada concessions, substantial and remunerative. The Oovernment, in Ita
C. N. R. proposals have inaugurated
a new ern in railway assistance—an
era that will give to tha people just
returns for aid to the railways.
With the passing of air Wilfrid
Laurler's Administration passed tbe
dav when all the railways bad to do
was to ask and they received. Mr.
Borden has laid down nnd carried
Ollt the new policy of concessions for
assistance, of supervision of the expenditure of the assistance, of a
measure of Oovernment control during the period of assistance, nnd, lln
ally, of Oovernment ownership if the
recipients of Oovernment aid default
Wheu the C. N. R. approached the
Oovernment for assistance during
the present session they had on their
hands nn incomplete transcontinental encouraged by Sir Wilfrid, and n
score of subsidiary companies—railway terminals, land and others.
The Government was confronted
with the task of consolidating these
thirty companies into one system before the question of aid could be
considered  intelligently.
Next tbe Government wns confront
ed with the proposition of making
the capital stock of tho Canadian
Northern Railway system representative of its assets.. The parent
company and the various subsidiary
companies represented capital stock
of $145,000,000. The Goverment immediately reduced tbis to $100.000000
"squeezing out the water." All this
loss fell on the promoters of the
rond. To prevent stockwatering, or
future over-rapitalhation, and to
prevent lessening in value of the
Government's hold ngs, no further
stock issues are possible without the
consent of the Government. Thus
the consolidated system lias had its
capitalization reduced one-third, and
control of further Increases in capital is with the Government.
For years Canada has been giving
its wealth and credit to railways
without any returns on the part of
the corporations. Mr. Borden, In his
O. N. R. proposals, has laid down a
new principle, and one thnt will give
to the Canadian people concessions
for credit or subsidies. After the
consolidation of the C.N.R. system
and the squeezing out of the wnter.
the Government, for lending its credit, takeB two-fifths interest in the
road. Of the $100,000,000 stock for
all time the Government of Canada
owns $40,000,000, and the cnpital
stock cannot be increased without
the consent of Parliament, fin Mackenzie & Manu is placed the responsi
bility for success. If they make good
they retain thc SfiO.OOfl.OOO stock, but
if they fail on default ln their undertaking the whole of the stock
goes to the Government. Canada
owns two-fifths In any event, and all
if the owners do not live up ta their
While building the railway, the
Canadian Northen people promoted
many land companies, which bave
assets of millions. Some of theBe
real estate holdings are in Winnipeg
and are very valuable. Many of
these companies nre included in the
consolidation, thus adding millions
to the value of the stock. Othersarc
pledged hy Mackenzie & Mnnn as additional security, and in event of
their default they become the property of the Government. There Is
nlso another feature of the consolidation which makes for greater value. In most railways such paying
companies as the express and telegraph are not Included in the parent
compnny, but in the Canadian North
ern Railway system the express and
telegraph companies of the railway
are an integral part of the system,
nnd their profits go to increase the
value of the Government's holdings,
not into the pockets of promoters.
Even the money raised un the Government's credit does not leave the
Government's control, hut Its expenditure is supervised. There will
he no opportunity afforded for the
diversion of this money to other pur
pOBBS than lor which it. wns secure I.
Ilie 14.^,000,000 will be deposited to
the credit of the people of Canada,
and will only bo paid out on certificates of the Government's engineer"),
Kor many venrs there hns heen a
suspicion that assistance from llm
Government hnd often boin dlroctcJ

companies than thnt for which it
was intended. I" iho prawnt proposals the Government hns taken sv

Automobile Meet
On Monday last there was Been in
Cranbpook such au array of automobiles ub has never before been seen
In the city.
Some time previous to this day
Secretary W. H. Wilson of the Auto
mobile Association sent out Invitations to all the automobile owners
requesting them to bring their cars
and stand them in position iu front
Of the Provinclnl Government building for the purpose of obtalnig a
photograph to be used for advertising purposes, the object being to
prove to the world at large that in
Oranbrook and District there is sufficient Industry carried on to war-
runt the assertion being made thnt
in Crnnbrook wo huve a city worthy
of note nnd one calculated to Impres
sightseers and inventors of its possibilities,
Sharp at 3 o'clock Dr. King drove
his car into first position, quickly
followed by the government car and
BJ. A. Hill's new car; otter this the
cars began to gather In and line Up
very quickly, At 3.30 about 40 cars
were arrayed before the camera ready
for the picture to be taken by R. J.
Binning, the city photographer.
Afterward the hand formed and led
the cars down Baker Street towaid
the station in single file, so long
was the procession that the first car
was ln the station yard as the last
car was leaving the government
The occasion was an Impressive
one, nnd one that was hound to
leave its impress on the mind of the
observer; no one even though they did
know fully realized the number of
cars that are in the city doing business (wa have since enquired at the
office of tbe number of cars licensed
and tind that in the city aud district there are 140 registered). After
a short drive round thc city the automobiles drove over to Wasa to enjoy the hospitality of N. Hanson,
who had arranged for thc party a
splendid banquet and music for dancing by the Cranbrook Orchestra and
in the Hotel grounds the Cranbrook
Band rendered selectionB from time
to time during tbe evening.
The manager of the Wasa Hotel C.
J. Johnson hnd decorated the front
of thc hotel with rod, white and blue
bunting and numerous Union .lacks
llowers were used for the interior de
coratlons and the place can truly be
eaid to have been in festive cloak ar
The banquet was of the hest aud
was thoroughly enjoyed by the 150
guests. After thc banquet thc Iloor
of the dining room was cleared for
dancing while the gentlemen adjourn
ed to another part of the hotel to
have their annual meeting. Sharp
at 9 o clock the president V. Hyde
Baker' called the meeting to order
wheu the secretary was requested to
read the minutes of the last annual
and special meetings.
At the close of the last year there
was a good surplus standing to the
credit of thc Association in the bank
to the amount of $90.45, tbls was ex
ceptionally good and called for applause from the members.
A communication was then read
from Manager C. .1. Johnson re the
building of a Club House at Wasa
on the shores of the lake. Mr. John-
Bon offered to the automobile association a free site, free water, and
as far as possible free lumber to he
csed ia its construction. Mr. Hungerford Pollen, as one of the managing directors of the Unionist Investment Co., tbe syndicate own ng tbe
property nt WasH, said ia respect to
this latter clause this would naturally be governed by the kind and
size of tbe building proposed.
Mr. Johnson pointed out thnt tbey
already had boats on the lake, together with lawn tennis courts anl
i.ther .imusements that would be of
ml vantage to thc members all ol
which would be tor their use- Thc
offer was received with applause and
the meeting's best thaii.s tendered
to the management for so geiier ins
ii spirit, the meeting deciding lhat
the besl they could do lor the present wns to leave tho matter lu the
hands of the executive committee to
confer further with Mr. Pollen on the
Forty-five   members   entered their
names as members of the association
lor the coming year.
The secretary read a letter from
the secretary nf llie Hoard of Trade
relating tfl a visit from u delegation
uf seventy-live business men who anticipate visiting Oranbrook end the
West, from Winnipeg, arriving tn Cran
hrook on May 23rd.    It was suggest   !
■d   that   instead of n one hour stay \
over being made efforts be made to
Mud) a two hour stop over so as
to enable the members of the auto
association to drive tho several visitors around the city ami district.
The Becretaw reported having ordered 2U0 Klaxon danger situs to be
put up in the district for the aid ot
autoiBts at every Bharp turn.
Attention was brought to the notice of the members ot the condition
that existed in Cranbrook as to the
Streets and the danger autos run of
breaking their springs Ity going over
the raised crossings. Suggestions
were made for their improvement, a
deputation of the President, Vice-
president and Secretary wall on ine
council to see what steps could be
taken to Improve the condition.".
Mr. Oeo. Stevenson moved that a
vote of thanks be given to our host
Mr. N. Hanson, fur his generous hospitality, adding "We-owe Mr. Hanson
a deep debt of gratitude for the help
ho has given to the Automobile association and also to the Olty of
Cranhrook. he is a man who has
spared neither time nor money in his
endeavor to further our Interests
and the best we can sny of him Is
none too good." The gathering then
rose as one man and snug that soul
stirring old song "Kor He's a Jolly
Oood Fellow, aud so say all of us "

Means   Moderation
ment may be summarized as follows:
1. The Union of all thc Companies (31 in all) in the Canadian Northern systemby the transfer to the
Canadian Northern Railway Com-
pany itself, of the stock of all the
2. The reduction of the capital
tock of the Companies thus united
from about $1411,000,000 to $100,000,-
3. The puarant.ee hy the Government of Canada of $4-rp,000,000 of seem ities of the Canadian Northern
Railway Company.
4. The Transfer to the Dominion
f Canada ol    .>40,000,000    of   atock
(inclusive of $7,000,000 already owned by tli? Dominion) as compensation for bond guarantee.
The Government is protected
hy a Mortgage from the Canadian
Northern on its entire assets and
from each of tbe otber Companies on
which mon'Jy shall shall be spent on
its assets as security against its liability.
G. Provision is made for supervision of the proceeds of the guaranteed securities to the end that
they must be applied in the completion and betterment of the system.
. Should the Company make default cither in respect of the securities now guaranteed or of nny prior
encumbrance, the Government haa
power immediately to take over the
rond as the absolute property of the
Dominion of Cnnada, subject only to
bonded  indebtedness.
H. Mackenzie, Mann & Company
and Messrs. Mackenzie nnd Mann individually release absolutely all
claim against the Canadian Northern for construction profits, commissions or other consideration for
transfers of stocks.
9, Mackenzie, Mnnn & Company
bind themselves thnt floating indebtedness will be reduced to normal Ugure within one yenr without recourse
to proceeds of guaranteed securities,
10. The Government takes, also,
as additional security the interest of
Mackenzie, Mann & ('ompany in Cnn
ad inn   Northern  Townsltes.
The Union of the various companies is' effected hy a transfer of the
shares of the various subsidiary
Companies, such as the Canadian
Northern Ontario, tbe Onnadian Nor
thorn Quebec, the Canadian Northern Pacific, the Halifax and Southwestern, the Quebec and Lake St.
(John, nnd many others to the parent Company, the Canadian Northern Itailway. hi addition to tbe n-
bovo Itailway Companies, the stock
of all the Terminal Companies owning their various terminals ami of
their steamship Compnny, aa well as
the stoek of Ibe Cuuudlnn Northern
Impress Company, Canadian Northern Telegraph Company, the Winiil
Kg Land Company, the St.. lloni-
faco & Wostffrn Lend Company, the
Mount Roynl Terminal & Tunnel
Company, tbo Canadian Northorn
Transfer Company- and all other
Companies connected with the railway   system,   am all transferred to
the Canadian Northern, and are, of
course, covered by the Government
security. These stocks were, in the
case of 18 companies, owned by the
Markcnzie & Mann Company. The
total fully paid capital of all these
Subsidiary Companies was about
(;fiS,000,000, and for this Mackenzie,
Mann & Company acoipt $23,000,000
of Canadian Northern stock. This
$23,000,000 alone, with the $77,000,-
000 already issued, makes the total
of $100,000,000 of which 40 per cent,
or two-filths, will hereafter r*-' owned by the Dominion of Canada, and
three-fifths by the present stockholders.
lt will thus he seen that a reduction of capitalization of $45,000,000
bus been effected, The Agreement
provides that no further capital of
any of the Companies now united in
one system can he issued without
tht consent oi the Government.
There is every reason to believe
that in the course of no great length
of time the road will be on a paying
basis. Its bonded indebtedness per
mile, inclusive of all the indebtedness of the various subsidiary companies, such as the Terminals, Tele,
graph, Express, Steamships, Transfer, Land Companies and others included, will, inclusive of the new
$45,000,000 issue, total little over
436,000 per mile. Taking th'.' railway Itself, with stations, etc., the
rate per mile would be a very great
deal less.
The Company's standard of road
from tb? standpoint of grades, curvature, road-bed and bridges, is
high, indeed, having regard to the
mileage cost, nnd as a consequence
should be In a position to compete
successfully for trnllic, and when
linked together as a system, become
a strong rnilway institution. Such
being the case, it will be seen thnt
upon such success the people of Canada will he well recompensed for the
guarantee now given, if, on the
oilier hand, adversity should be encountered, thc Government is in a
position upon default to o invert the
system into a notional institution
and to run it if they decide to do so
as a government railway system.
All the roads comprised in the sys
tem are brought by the arrangement
under thc Dominion jurisdiction. Tho
Government has taken to itself the
power to appoint' on the Board of
the Canadian Northern, or on the
Hoard of nny subsidiary company, a
Director, whose duties it will be to
keep the Government advised in respect of the management of tbe road.
Upon default, the Government ia empowered to dismiss thfl Directors of
the parent Company, or any of the
others, and tn appoint a new Hoard
in their place,
from the above It will bo seen
that the principle which the Government has kept In view Is to secure
for Mm people of Canada adequate
return in tbo wny of nn interest, lu
the syst'tn Itself for thc services
rendered by the Canadian people in

If ever there was a question that
affected women, surely it is the war
fever question, for who are not tbo
silent suffereers from the devastations of the war fiend?
That there are intelligent and unselfish people who do not want to
see women equipped witb the franchise will be gsanted, but thfeir intelligence and their unselfishness are
the unwitting tools of the real opposition which comes from powerfully entrenched and selfish interests
from political bosses, ami cogs in
their party machines, from the human vultures that prey on women,
and regard them in their colosaaf ignorance as their inferiors, the test
of their own superiority being their
brute force.
It is Against this kind of superiority that women are revolting thc
world over, because it is the superiority of tyranny, and thc men who
ure wise will line up with them in
their right, for their caiibV is the
cause of humanity.
That women can not accomplish
the reforms they desire without the

Of the democracy tlmt will never
work out its own salvation till tbo

The vote is absolutely tho only real
weapon thut democrucy lifts, and
when the womon takes up that weapon universally, we shall seo things

She who brings life int.. the World,
to whom the future of tbo race is
entrusted, will alwaya place life before property, and physical nnd mor
al  health  liefore  profit.   •
The vote is a means, but only n

not merely giving women a vote,
