Ohio Democrat, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1890, New Philadelphia, Ohio IN WOMAN'S BEHALF NEW FIELDS h SURPRISING SUCCESS Woman's Chances for Earning a hood Ever Increasing New fields are opening for women all tho time until now there are few things tli at a man can do that a woman can not also do Tho old maxim Where there's a will there's always a has been fully illustrated in New York lately and no doubt is in many other cities and villages every week month and year only we don t always hear of it A bright little woman of whom the New York speaks of as an had seen better days and when young had been to wealth and position a coachman and a carriage a maid and many other luxuries found herself most alone in the world and with a ter to support could she eral things fairly well but nothing that would gain for her a livelihood and yot she was earnest faithful and willing to do any thing honorable At last a py thought struck her and she com- making rag dolls of coarse jean and stuffing with cotton Dressed in dainty print trimmed with lace and with little bonnets perched on their heads they really very line and were soon in great demand A Brooklyn young lady well-known in so ciety circles offered to paint the faces of the and so another Held for women simple and humble thou it is Some years ago a poor old lady who was trying to earn an honest living de to open a hospital for broken and disabled dolls and soon she had more work than sue could do Some dolls were minus a leg or arm some bad broken their a few had lost an eye and others wanted a new wardrobe And so this dear little woman who was always the children's friend and Auntie to one and all found her vocation A repairer of toys a good ness in many of the large cities for in every nursery is found many valuable toys that are broken or have come apart and a little glue a few tacks or nails or a needle and thread mixed with brains as the artist said are only needed to make thorn all right and as good as new A bright girl who is decidedly tic and loves children recently opened a mow field for herself and other clever girls She had noticed from time to time that the children of wealthy parents were frequently dressed in such a manner as to look really dowdyish One day she saw a beautiful child sitting in a carriage dressed in a most ing suit and the thought occurred to her that if suits were designed ly for children perhaps they would find a ready sale So home she went and after learning the name of the child's mother she procured material and de- signed a most artistic and beautiful tle costume This she sent to tho mother with a note of explanation ing if she purchased it no one else should have one like it The lady was delighted with it and glad to purchase it Since then this bright girl has taken many orders for some of the wealthiest and most influential women of Now York and has established a ular business She informs herself on all subjects that relate to dress and designing and is making of this business She bids fair to make a large fortune and is already earning a good income The Ladies Guide Association which was organized in London is an excellent thing and opens another avenue to women for earning a livelihood It is a very remunerative occupation for women who have been suddenly thrown on their own resources without a knowledge of any one thing that will aarn a living Mrs Sophia the able and efficient business manager of the En- and Mining Journal is an illustration of the fact that girls and women can by their own hard work patience and perseverance work them- selves up from a low to a high position A writer in a leading paper says of The whole discipline of the large office is in her hands and business men who go in and out say there are few offices in the city where courtesy is so prompt and general and where every thing moves so smoothly on hinges She thoroughly understands business and has made self invaluable A rising young man who has recently teen elected president of the New York Sketch Club recently I don't see why more women do not study archi- There is no pleasanter or more remunerative profession Who is ter fitted for planning tho interior of a house than a woman who must spend the greater part of her life within its In time and with study she would soon learn how the exterior should be Several women in Buffalo Philadelphia and other cities already are doing a good I have ly heard two middle-aged ladies ting that they did not study for they seem especially fitted for that profession As designers of carpets women are fame and fortune Mrs Charles was elected ident of the Medina Valley Railway Company Februrary last and is the first woman in the United States ever elected to a similar position Tho world does move and America s grand women are freer to make for themselves a name and fortune than over Carrie May Aston in dies Home Companion Advance of Women 111 State of When Harriet Martineau visited America she astonished Great Britain by writing home only seven occupations are open to women Now thoro aro upward of 300 in New City alono according to tho United States of Labor Mr H G Wadlin statistician of the Massachusetts Labor Bureau in his State report has collected some remark- able facts regarding the industrial of the women In 1885 the female population of tho Bay State was of whom 000 were engaged in twenty-one tries Thoro were partners or holders in various manufacturing con- cerns In 1875 there were music teachers and in 1885 tho keeper had increased from to the saleswomen from to the educational teachers from to 094 the accountants from to 504 the operators on clothing from 345 to tho operators on cotton goods from to and the mill hands from to In the ing and bookbinding firms the increase is from to 2.340 in rubber and tic goods from to In women wore furnished with home employment in the number had fallen to showing that the tendency in all industries more and more toward factory ment rather than home work Twenty-five years ago very few worn en left home for employment they bound shoes made caps shirts under wear and children's clothing bats bas kets mittens stockings carpets and yarn in their kitchens but all this is changed now The factories have mul machinery has done away with all hand labor and the women have been compelled to follow the work Mr Wadlin says in his re- port has made an entrance into the industrial world has increased her hold upon old branches of occupation and forced her way into many new ones She is better educated for active em- ployment better able to grapple with the difficulties of business than ever be- fore and having tasted of the sweets of independence by being able to support herself and help others one is forced to conclude that woman's position in in- dustry is secure and will bo permanent Every occupation but those calling for too much outdoor exposure or too much muscular labor is open to woman and if she has not already secured a footing therein the next census will show that she lias found a way THE TRUST CROP Reasons Private Robert J expresses himself as Why am 1 a woman Be- cause I am Because a woman good hard common sense than a man Because she doesn't give SI 50 for an article that she knows very well she can get for seventy-five cents Because she does not stalk loftily away from the counter without her change if the bor behind it is a little reluctant about counting it out Because she is too in- dependent to pay tho landlord 83.35 for her dinner and then pay the waiter one dollar to send her a waiter who will bring it to her for fifty cents Because she will hold her money ly in her own good little right hand for two hours until she first gets a receipt for it from the fellow who made her husband pay the same three times last year Not any Just give you credit for it for her Because one day a Pullman porter complained to me No money on this trip too many women aboard Don't never get nothin out of a woman just her regular fare I had just paid him twenty-five cents for blacking one of my boots and losing the other and when he said that when I saw for myself the heroic firmness of those women traveling alono paying their fare and refusing to pay the ies of the employes of a wealthy ation I These women have a right to vote To By all that is brave and self-reliant and sensible they have a right to run the Hew Activity In tlie Growth New All at aud ive to Like Not Want Cheap and go on equal force While the high tariff advances in Washington are getting gether to reap the full benefit that the lew tariff law will give them The most recent case ia that of the satinet who met in cester Mass representatives being present from nearly all the important mills in the country At this meeting action was taken to devise a plan of consolidation similar to that adopted by the card clothing makers It ia the dispatch goes on to say by close combination to reduce the number of commission houses and lessen competition The second new trust is that of the card clothing men which will be known under the corporate title of the ican Card Clothing Company There are fifteen firms associated together in this trust One of the objects of the trust is as stated by one of the men in it to fix up a reasonable scale of prices They are materially aided in this venture by the higher protective duties given them by Major McKinley who We want no return to cheap times in our own country The trust McKinley are of one mind on the subject of keeping up prices A third trust is getting ready for Operations Not long ago four of the six manufacturers of twine in this country met in New York to consider the question of uniting with the sale twine dealers in order to maintain a scale of prices and to prevent cutting that has hitherto injured both parties An agreement was reached which is to go into effect as soon as it is signed by the two manufacturers who were absent One of tho manufacturers who was ent said that these two firms would without doubt agree to the arrangement in a very short time as the conditions were so evidently to their advantage The fourth trust is the tableware glass trust News comes from Findlay O that all the tableware glass factories in the in have completed arrangements with an English syndicate giving it the control of the entire glassware business in the United States One of the first things to be done by the it is an- will be to shut down a ber of the factories in districts where fuel is costly This trust also bad tho way smoothed down for it by the good Major McKinley He put largely in- creased duties on table glassware The Senate cut these down in some cases to the present rate and in other cases allowed an increase somewhat less than had given This seems a very appropriate time to pass Senator Plumb's amendment to the Tariff for the admission at duty of all articles controlled by trusts Senator Sherman ought to support that amendment No longer than last Octo- ber he The primary object of a protective tariff is to invite tlie fullest on by and corporations In domestic tion If such individuals or corporations combine to advance the price of tho tic product and to prevent the Iree result of open and f ilr competition 1 would without hesitation reduce the duties on foreign goods with them in order to break down the combination Whenever free competition is evaded or avoided by combinations of individuals or corporations the duty should be reduced and foreign com-

the face of a fact like this what ia the use for McKinley to try to humbug the farmer by raising the duty on wheat from twenty cents a bushel to five cents and on cora from ten cents to Of these two articles we Imported ing the fiscal year ended June 30 just worth from all countries In attempting to shut out that trifle Kinley has injured our foreign market for wheat and corn more than four times as much for a single month and for a single country To put the matter in a still more striking light for every dollar's worth of corn and wheat that he prevents from coming into this country from all other countries he cuts off sixty dollars worth from the farmer's foreign market in a single country And such is the quality of But it is not France alone that is ing us back our fold Canada takes a

that N K banks Co the extensive pork ers of have leased premises in Montreal and go into tho lard ness there The report states that they could not sell their American lard in Canada owing to tho duty Of course Canadian farmers will furnish the hogs for this Montreal ment This example shows not only how narrows the market for our farm products but also how it drives American capital out of tho

of France's Retaliatory Duty on Our Grain Narrowing the Farmer's Foreign of Ada's Outy on Our tow and the of the Farmer By her recently adopted tariff laws France collects a duty of fifteen cents a bushel on grain imported from other European countries but on grain from the United States the new duty is cents a bushel which is prohibitory Why this discrimination against It is a dose of which France has prepared for us to pay us back for the high tariff folly of tho party in Tho McKinley Ad- ministrative Customs which went Into effect on August 1 lays great in tho way of buying and im- porting the foreign goods that wo need and Franco was very much wrought up over it as well as over tho other and still worse McKinley which is yet to come France has simply given us a dose of McKinley medicine but it must bo noticed that it is our farmers who have to take it and thus as Blaine points out our foreign market for breadstuffs grows narrower But what will bo the precise effect of this French duty on Tho latest reports from the Treasury Department present the following in- Our exports of corn and wheat to France for the fiscal year ended Juno 30 were valued and for last year Here is an average of eight and a half million lars cut off from our farmers foreign market at a single stroke and all on account of McKinley The effect of those French duties Tory clearly show by comparing our exports to France in June with tho same month this Tho duty has but re- cently been imposed in that country but already for tho month of Juno there Is a most remarkable falling off in our cl wheat and corn to France A HOME MARKET A Case Illustrating tho of tlic Home Idea The census returns of the State of Connecticut offer a very interesting commentary on home market ideas of the protectionists That home market idea is thus stated in tha organ of tho Protective Tariff In every village surrounded by farms there should be located manufacturing of some kind that will employment to operatives The wants ot these people will create a demand for food clothing and sh Her and tho product of farm and will be ever in demand Nothing will be wasted in transportation anJ labor will reap tho entire harvest According to that notion a State with one or more factories in every village ought to bo particularly prosperous in its agricultural interests As cut is a State whose manufacturing in- are highly diversified and in which a mill of some kind is found in close proximity to every farming com- munity the State ought to furnish tho protectionist with a shining example of his home market idea The population there ought to be very and consequently growing in numbers But what are the Tho farming communities nearest the cities of Con- are shown by tho recent sus to have lost about ten per cent of their population in tho past ten years This result is arrived at by taking tho three townships lying nearest each of the twelve cities in tho State So great a decline in population in these farming districts right at tho doors of the factories does not look very encouraging for protectionists Their home market theory breaks down when tested by experience Toledo m 7 m I m 4 m 715 Oak

cent in ton years And yet tho State has scarcely one protected Texas nothing and all manufactured goods go into tho State free and at much less cost than Texas could make them herself And all this flood of cheap goods has not ruined On the contrary she has much moro than doubled her wealth in ten And without a tariff to keep out cheap Western farmer has no interest whatever in a protective tariff His in- terest rather lies in the direction of frea access to all ever his products may be in demand It is for his interest to sell what he wherever ho can find a purchaser and thus provide
