What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

A day or two ago, warrants for $16,253,000 in pensions were issued from the treasury ; still since the iirat of this month, the excess of receipts over expenditures is three million arid a half (tellers; and so tile enormous sur- plus goes piling up.

The fact that the doctrine of Jeeus respecting the true relation of woman to man is not accepted in practice . by any of the nations called Christian, or by the clergy or laity of . any of the chief churches called Christian, seems to explain the Keying of Protap Chunder .Mo- zoorndar, who came as a missionary of the Brehm() Somaj from India to this country: \We accept Christ,\ said be, \but not Chrietianity.\ He found the ideas and the life of Jesus altogether admirable. Interpreting the ideas of the churches' called CiPt4stian by their written creeds and.. the daily lives of their ministers and members, lie judged them unworthy of the name they have assumed, and considered the theism of the Brehm° Somaj to be not only better than what they call Christianity, but a more genuine following of the great teacher of Nazareth. It ie best, bn all accounts, to dis- miss false pretenses, arid to look at facts as they really are. The eleva- tion of women is habitually claimed by clergymen as one of the triurepls of Christ.anity; bit in fact, in regard to the relation of woman to than, Paul's' doctrine of her thorough sub- ordination to_liusband aa well as fa- ther is yet accepted and acted on by an itnmense majority of nominal Christians, Protestant as well as Catholic; while only a small minori- ty of them accept *practice the doctrine of equality of eights be- tween man and weenie which Jesus taught. And the immense increase in the recognition of this equality which has been manifest in this country during the last half century has arisen not at all Worn church ac- tion instigated by the small minori- ty above mentioned, but from organ- ized action outeide the churches by people seeking to establish natural justice, and welcoming the co-oper- ation of all lovers of justice, quite irrespective of their opinions about CHA.S.

I., said: Only the day before yesterday I was talking with an eminent politi- cal economist who was onpossed to granting suffrage to women. Ile said: \What do you propose to gain by it? Will politics become any cleaner?\ I thought that they would become much cleaner, but that is not the main reason for suf- frage. \The reason that men desire to exercise it,\ I answered, \is that they protect in their own Way their own rights and interests. Suppose the question should be put to vote, whether a loan or a gift should be made by a township in aid of a new railroad --a woman possibly may be the owner of one hale the property in the township, yet she has no voice in determining whether she will be taxed to build the roed; she has no means of protecting her own, while every mail, whether he have proper- ty or not, can vote to cast this bur- den upon her. Is that fair?'' The I gentleman admitted that it. wae not. THE WOMEN''S . coLuxic WOMEN ORGANIZING. The movement to organize the workingwomen of Boston, inaugur- ated by the Boston Woman Suffrage League, took shape on Thursday evening, August is, in a public, meeting at Wells Memorial Hall, under the auspices of the Central Leber Union. • This movement for workingwomen, if judiciously managed, may achieve important results. In Massachusetts there are more than two hundred thousand who earn their support, by work outside of their own homes, at less than one-half the average rate of wages paid to men. In Boston there are \‘In such a case,\ said teeshe ought undoubtly have the right to vote to protect her property; lent that is an exceptional case.\ eNe,\ I answered, \that case is no: an eiception, but the rule. No q'uestion can arise in legislation but one in Yvhich she has ein interest similar in principal if not degree. Take a womati - who is With- out property, one whole rearing boys whom she is endeavoring to raise as upright men. The question arises, Shall liquor he sold imp the town?
