The Union Frangaise pour le Suffrage
les Femmes has no intention of using
ts influence to oppose this scheme, but
it will tak6 no part in it. It arises from
poetic and patriotic impulse, but in
no way stands for the principle of wom-
en's votes. It would have the one ad:
vantage of accustoming people to the
sight of women voting. As it would in-
volve plIral voting, the vote of the dead
not being reserved exclusively for wom-
en, It would meet with great opposition
in the Chamber from certain parties.
  Possibly, after all, it will never be
brought in, for we are happy to say that
the celebrated author, MaurIce BarrZs,
is in process of development, as Is
shown in the following passage in an ar-
ticle in the Echo de Paris of Nov. 13,
1916, called Amongst the Widows of the
War':
  The wives and mothers whose home
is bereaved deserve to Inherit the civic
legacy of. those, whom they' fae lflIp'ed
with' all their energy to save France,
Before the warI - had never gfven my
-mind -to the claims of women, or rather,,
I felt repugnaiee-t0 them, and saw no
reason for them. Today a series of facts,
the whole experience of' the war, have.
persuaded me. ' Our soldiers; in'- the, great-

right that those who: have collaborated'
in the national defence should 'toimori'ow-
be closely associated with the 'whole life
of France. I am' ready from today to
join with them in this claim. - - -

present is unrepresented. 'he bill would
give a personal vote to unmarried.wom-
en, but would not allow it to married
women: the father would vote for wife
and children. A widow would regain
her right to vote, and would exercise it
for her children. The bill involving as
it does plural voting, would meet with
great opposition in the Chambef, and
as it does not recognize in any way the
right of the married woman to vote as a
responsible person, but classes her with
minors, we are not concerned In any way
with the proposal.

iINEPENDENTS TO


   RULE NEXT HOUSE


Party Allegiance So Close Miss Rankin
       May Be Necessary for a
             Bare   ajority


   Independent members of the in om- c
 ing House of Representatives are plan- 1
 ning an organization to work apart from
 both Democrats and Republicans with
 the avowed purpose of enforcing radical
 changes in the rules.
   Conferences have proceeded quietly,
 usually on the floor'of the House. Par-
 ticipants are disinclined to talk, for
 both Democrats and Republicans arc,
 eagerly seeking their favor as the speak-
 ership situation daily becomes more
 doubtful.  Representative Randall of
 California, a Prohibitionist, indicated re-
 cently, however, the nature of the im-
 mediate plans.
   We are anxious that the rules be
 amended so that the people may know
 what their representatives are doing,
 he said. The present system of voting
 in the -committee of the whole, makes
 it possible for members to frequently
 conceal their votes on very important
 proposals.  I think if we cai remedy
 this situation and make some changes
 in the method of reporting bills from
 committees, an 'independent organiza-
 tion will be worth while.
   Four   independents, Representatives
   Shell of Minnesota, and   Martin  of
   Louisiana, Progressives; Randall of Cal-
   ifornia, Prohibitionist, and London of
   New York, Socialist, are in the present
   House.  They hope that Representa-
   tives-elect Fuller of Massachusetts, and
   Kelley of Pennsylvania. and Rankin of
   Montana will join them. Messrs. Ful-
   ler and Kelley were elected as indepen-
   dents. Miss Rankin is a Republican,
   but hope of her independence is based
   on the fact that she was opposed by the
   Republican organization in the primary.
   The personnel of the  coming  House
   still is In doubt. Both Speaker Clark
   and Republican Leader Mann declare,
   that their respective sides would have at
   least 218 votes, a majority, on  the
   speakership.


      PARADE IN JAPAN RAPS
            SEGREGATION


   Christian Women of Jananese City
      Make Publik Protest Against
            Vicious Quarters

    Headed by    Mrs. Kaji Yajima. the
    eighty-two-year-old president of the Jap-
    anese Woman's   Temperance   Society,
    the Christian women of Osaka, J&pan,
    recently marched .tn a procession pro-
    testing against licensed quarters for im-
    morality.
    Last April a new permit to open a
    seventeen-acre quarter within a short
    distance of the great play-centre of. the
    city, stirred up strong opposition among
    the citizens; and the contest has been
r  waxing so great that, according to the
   Northfield Record of Christian Work, it
e  may lead to the break-up of licensed
d  vice all over Japan.
h    The protest of the women was pre-
   sented in  petition form to Governor
   Okubo, -who is a Yale graduate.     A
n  Tokyo   publication, The  Far East,
y  quoted by the Literary Digest. says that
.   the women were nfilable to see the Go-
e   ernor, who was busy, and were.re-
    ferred to the chief of police.

QUIET LIFE FOR
              CONGRESWOMAN

Miss Rankin Gives Few Interviews
   -Kept Away from Moving Pic-
   ture Man

 Since Jeannette Rankin's election to
 Congress, much has been written about
 her which existed only in the imagina-
 tion of the writer. As a matter of fact,
 according to the   Absarokee (Mont.)
 Enterprise, she has remained quietly
 at home and has given interviews to
 practically no one. It is true she has
 been besieged by moving picture men
 until it became a 'serious annoyance to
 the family and this is the story of how
 she at last consented to be featured for
 the movies.
   Perhaps Miss Rankin   was not - so
 averse to being caught by the camera,
 but she felt that the manner of featur-
 ing the film woud not add to the dig-
 nity of her position and she steadily re-
 fused to pose for the movie' artist. As
 the camera man had evidently received
 orders to stick, the-affair resolved itself
 to a real siege, and Miss Rankin was
 obliged to cancer all her social-engage-'
 ments because it was quite Impossible
 for her to-leave hot home.
   Not only that, but. tue students at
 the university in Missoula f91t as though
 they were entitled..to a visit from their
 distinguished towunswoman and untvers-
 ity graduate, and they wished-to receive
 hei on the university campus with all
 the pomp and enthusiasm which college
 itudents the world over are wont to
 display on even less important occa-
 sions.
   It remained fr.,Mrs. K. W. jameson,
 dean of women-at the university, Ct find
 a happy, solution of the 'whole difficulty.
 For Dean Jameson argued that Tiow Miss
 Rankin belonged to 'the 'whoe State,
 and that if the movipg picture man was
 so antious to feature the new ongress-
 woman, he should be allowed to do so,
 but with a stage-setting: which   was
 worthby'of the -oceasiol and wita would
 bring real pretige -o the I'university.-
   So-she proposed that Miss R.kin be
 nllowtd to cometo the campu ano-
 lested and the camera man should   -
 tract to take 100 ,et'o film how
 Mhe universiti buildifai&, - the splesidid


in the distance. Perhaps no other unt-
versity-in the'world has more magnifi-
cent natural :surroundings than has the
college at Missoula and to show. this on
the screen would not only be a very
effective advertisement for the -Univers-
ity. of Montana, but a source of, great In-
spiration and pride to all the citizens of
the State.            _
-And so, on the campus of her own
Aima Mater, Miss Rankin was finallyl-
photographed, while addressing 'the
whole body of students, assembled there
to do her honor, and thanks to Dean
Jamescn, the first inovie of the con-
gresswoman will not only- be of great
interest to the millions who see It but
It will be of great educational and in-,
'spirational value to-the-State of Mon-

Prominent Citizens Act as Critics and
          Express Opinions

 Just as this anniversary number of
The Journal was about to go to press,
few expert critics Iand friends gath-
ered to judge the changes. They ex-
pressed their opinions, which were put
into type and inserted below at the last
moment:
Frank A. Black, Advertising Manager of
  William Filene's Sons, asid Member
  Executive Committee Assogiated Ad-
  vertistng Clubs of the World:-
  A paper that thinks, intended for peo-
ple who think, with efficiency magnified
greatly by the new ' dress.
William Lloyd Garrison, Jr., Investment
  Banker:-
  The appearance of The Woman's Jour-
ual in this new garb is merely another
iece of contemporary evidence of the
persistent advance of the suffrage move-
ment, the success of which is inevitable
because of the element of juctice which
inheres in woman's claim to citizenship.

F. N. Barbour, Treasurer Johnson Edu-
  cator Food Co.:-
  The idea of equality between mqn and
women needs a progressive exponent-
here it is.
Perry Walton, of Walton Advertising &
  Printing Co.:-
  The Woman's Journal, in make-up and
subject matter, is now a real newspaper.


NEW YEAR PROMISES


       BIG THINGS FOR


            WOMA N SUFFRA GE



Victories for the Cause Have Been Coming Thick

        and Fast During Recent Years-Present

                Situation-Historical Resume


      The year 1g7 opens with the brightest outlook for equal suffrage that
 the cause has ever had. For the first time, the rational platform of every
 political party contains a plank declaring that women ought to vote. For
 the first time, a woman has been elected to Congress. For the first time,
 the women of twelve States have taken part in a great national election,
 and have been an important factor in the result. The Federal Amendment
 for woman suffrage, wIich six years ago was looked upon in Coqgress as
 wholly negligible, now commands the most senoas attention from the lead-
 ers of all parties, and all clear-sighted persons realize that its passage
 through Congress cannot be permanently delayed.
      The suffrage movement has already won 87 substantial victories. At
  first they were few and far between; of late years they have come thick
  and .ast.
      Ninety years ago women could not -vote anywhere, except at municipal
  elections in Sweden and a few other places in Europe.
      In the forty years from 1830 to 1870, women were given full suffrage
  in Wyoming, municipal suffrage in England, Finland, Victoria and Nw
  South Wales, and school suffrage in Kentucky, Kansas and Ontario.
