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.

UUler ARE MEN ENSLAVED? O u g h t They To Be E m a n c lp te d ? [From the Chicago Tribune, Fob. 22, 1902.] H ated R iv alry T o E nd In W ar. Is il not time that there was an apostle abroad to preach emancipa­ tion to men? Until a man marries his income is usually his own. His own needs, his own pleasures, his own gratifications are all that he is bound to consider in the disbursing of it. When he marries the case is quite dif­ ferent. “With all my worldly goods I thee endow” comeB to have a mean­ ing and a reality which he never sue pected before. His wife has a mort­ gage claim upon him which is apt to turn his cigar fund, his theater fund, his little supper fund into a perpetual fund, for the purchase of bonnets, gowBS and other toilet necessaries. As time goes on [ there? come other needs—doctors’ bills, nurses’ bills baby clothes and carringes, all of which it is his bounden duty to meet. For thiB he toils in the workshop, the store, or the office, wherever heavy manual labor or severe mental strain will bring golden returns. And all the while, if things go well with him, the wife sits at home, busy, indeed, with.household cares, but spared the steady and exhausting labor, in the outer world which her masculine co­ partner is undergoing for her sake. Often this supported aud protected woman is doubling and trebling the burden which rests upon her hus­ band’s shouldera by her own ignor­ ance of, or inattention to home duties, thus necessitating more servants, more waste and extraviganae, more occupation for the nurse and the doctor, . To one who has studied these conditions thoughtfully for years, the question must often arise; Is it not men, after all, who are “enslaved,” who need “emancipation”! Why do they not “arise in their might” and throw off the shackles which bind them to the oftentimes petty and tyranous exactions of woman? If rights and not duties constitute the sum of human good, why do not men abandon the whole scheme of social order and seek each one his own gratifications, and let women do the same? Surely men, if anybody, lave the best of reasons to welcome the industrial and political equality of women. The apathy of home-loving woman concerning woman sufferage has been bemoaned ever Bince the agitation in its favor commenced. It is not pos­ sible that the reason of this apathy is that women who are supported and protected in the home, have a deep sense that what the suffragists propose to them, is to follow the ex­ ample of the dog in the fable and drop the piece of meat in their mouths :for its deceptive reflection in the water? The privileges which they have are good and wholesome, and they prize them, and it is a latent ami well-founded fear that, if the suffrage agitation goes on unchecked, it may lead to an abrogation of them, which ia constraining these women to take upon themselves the unwelcome bur­ den of opposing it. Already fewer men are marrying, more married men are depending upon their wives for support, more women are being thrown upon the world for the support of themselves and their children. Men are not hysterical; they will not shriek about emancipation; but if their homes are neglected and given up to noisy con­ tentions, if women abandon home duties and avoid motherhood and its attsndant cares, men will not be many generations in finding out that -the labor and service which they bestow upon their homes are wasted, and they will seek tbeir own ’gratification and leave women to shirk for them­ selves. There are few women who are willing to do a man’s work in the outside world and bear and rear children besides. The industrial and political independence of women, therefore, seems to be a short and straight road to anarchy. A venerai basking business tisnsseted. Ia ■eiMtallowad on time daeoalta. Dr. J. B. McCollum, expert optician and eye specialist from Great Falls will be at the Choteau Houae, Sep tember 4th, for one week.—Free testa. London, Aug. 30.—“A hated rivalry which may some day be settled by the arbitrament of the sword” seems to fairly sum up the Saturday Review’s opinion of the relations between Great Britain and the United States. Discussing President Roosevelt’s pronouncement on Monroeism, the always bitterly anti-American Satur­ day Review uses the president’s speech as a text on which to enunciate a long sermon on- “American greed and hypocrisy” and the danger threaten­ ing the British empire from the United States’ future expansion. It says, in reviewing the history of the Monroe doctrine: Proceeding to point that Monroe ism'cannot rest on air, and that un­ less based on power it is sure to be exposed, to be pushed aside and dis regarded, the Spsotator c ontinuos: “The power on which it must primarily rest is soa power. If the European states know that America has sea power to on force the Monroe doctrine it will be scrupulously re­ spected. The moment they see the doctrine is based only on paper it will be disregarded. To make the doctrine effective America must build a fleet unquestionably stronger than that of France or Germany. She need not trouble to outbuild us, as we not merely agree to, but may be said to be passive supporters of the Monroo doctrine.” SWIFT CURRENT FAILS. “It is unfortunate/f if not excep­ tional, that the United States cannot be satisfied with the plain, straight­ forward policy of self-interest with- out attempting to explain it as a dis­ interested and highly moral position. It was on this basis that the war with Spain was undertaken, resulting in in the Philippines being annexed and Cuba being put under the heel. South America’s natural resources are enormous,’ but the individual states cannot act together. It is plain they will not long resist Amer­ ican ‘protection’ from European ag gression will soon incubate occupa­ tion by the United States.” Proceeding to discuss the effect of Monroeisn on the British empire, tho Saturday Review says: “The United States ia the only great power seperated from the British empire by nothing but a land frontier, and il is the settled object ol the United States to ultimately in elude Canada. The United States in wealth and numbers will soon exceed that of any rival we have, possibly excepting Russia, whose position in relation to us territorially is not nearly so critical. Under the circum­ stances it is surely clear that the power we need be most concerned about is America. Acute territorial and commercial rivalry always results in an ultimate trial by forces. It is the only final settlement. “If that is so, the policy of either country must be to avoid doing any­ thing which can increase the other’s power or give it points in tho strug­ gle. On that principle the Uuited States has steadily opposed us diplo­ matically, never conceding a point. YVe, on the other hand, have usually gone out of our way to help the United States. “In the matter of the isthmian canal we lost ground and America gained. The only balancing adyant age would be such consequent gqd active friendship on the part of Amer­ ica that we might count .on her as meeting us half way by abstaining from injuring us. We are glad in the Interests of theUnite l State# and Great Britain and the peace of the world that President Roossevelt an- t nounced in such clear and unmis­ takable terms that the Monroe doc­ trine will be enforced by the Uuited Statea at all costs. The Monroe doc trine is a danger to peace only if it is undefied. All authoritative state­ ments of the policy of the United States in this particular are therefore most welcome. We hold that the maintenance of of the Monroe doc­ trine is as good for us as the United State*. M o n u m ent to Lewis and Clarke. The directors of tho Lewis and Clark Centennial and American Pa- cific^exposition ure planning to erect a monument in Portland, Oregon, to the memory of Captains Lewis and Clarke. The plan of the committoe having the matter in charge is to erect a monument on which thoro shall bo four- tablets, representing Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana, by tbeir respective coats of arms or symbolic inscriptions on the respec­ tive tablets. The monument is to be of granite, taken from some point near the route followed by the ex­ plorers through tho Oregon county. The corner stone is to be laid as soon as practicable, and the monument is to be unveiled in the centennial year, 1905. President Roosovelt and tue governors of Oregon, Washington, Montana and Idaho have been in­ vited to attend the corner Btouo lay­ ing and to parcipitate in the exorcise. People Y ou L ike to Meet.

A newreligioussact has been found­ ed in the southwestern province of Russia, the members of which be­ lieve in baptism by brandy instoad of baptism by water. The baptism, too, is internal, instead of external, the convert drinking as much of the liquor as he can possibly negotiate. The method of baptism is believed to be the cause of the rapid growth of the sect, which is gaining converts in all directions. As a rule a man will feel well satis­ fied if he can hobble around on crutches two or three weeks after spraining bis ankle, and it is usually two or three months before ho has fully recovered. This is un uoneces sary loss of time, for in many cases in which Chamberlain’s Pain Balm kaa been promptly and freely applied, a complete cure has been effected in lesa than one week’s time, and in some cases within three days.
