   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 liveli- 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 Ilerald speaks of as "an unap- propriated had seen better days, and, when young, had been ac- customed to wealth and position, a coachman and a carriage, a maid and many other luxuries, found herself al- most alone in the world and with a sis- ter to support. AVhat could she do? Sev- 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 hap- py thought struck her, and she com- menced making rag dolls of coarse jean and stuffing iiam with cotton. Dressed in dainty print gSwns, trimmed with lace, and with little bonnets perched on their heads, they really looko'l 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 dolls: and so another Held, open: for women, simple and humble thou it is. Some years ago a poor, old lady, who was trying to earn an honest living de cided 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 flndst a good busi- 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 artis- 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 unbecom- ing suit, and the thought occurred to her that if suits were designed especial- 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 lit- tle costume. This she sent to tho mother with a note of explanation, say- 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 reg- ular business. She informs herself on all subjects that relate to dress and designing, and is making acarefulstudy 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 edu- cated women, who have been suddenly thrown on their own resources, without a knowledge of any one thing that will aarn a living. Mrs. Sophia Brseunlich, the able and efficient business manager of the En- gineering 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 her: "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 uncreaking hinges." She thoroughly understands business and has made her- self invaluable. A rising young man, who has recently teen elected president of the New York Sketch Club, recently said: "I don't see why more women do not study archi- tecture. There is no pleasanter or more remunerative profession." Who is bet- 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 bxisiness. I have late- ly heard two middle-aged ladies regret- ting that they did not study architect- ure? for they seem especially fitted for that profession. As designers of carpets, women are fame and fortune. Mrs Charles Ilaines was elected pres- 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 La- dies' Home Companion. Itomarkablo Advance of Women 111 State of MiiSKitcuuiiutta. 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 Yo-k City alono, according to tho United States Commis- sioner 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 con-i diiion of the women. In 1885 the female population of tho Bay State was of whom 000 were engaged in twenty-one indus- tries. Thoro were partners or share- holders in various manufacturing con- cerns. In 1875 there were music teachers and in 1885; tho shop- keeper had increased from to the saleswomen from to the educational teachers from to 10-. 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 print- ing and bookbinding firms the increase is from to 2.340, in rubber and tic goods from 3C4 to In 1S75 women wore furnished with home employment; in 1SS5 the number had fallen to showing that the tendency in all industries more and more toward factory employ- 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 tiplied, 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. Uurdette's Reasons. Private Robert J. Burdetto expresses himself as follows: Why am 1 a woman suffragist? Be- cause I am. Because a woman hasmoro 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 rob- 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 bead- waiter one dollar to send her a waiter who will bring it to her for fifty cents. Because she will hold her money tight- 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 bill 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 'ceptin' 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 salar- ies of the employes of a wealthy corpor- ation, I said: "These women have a right to vote. To vote? By all that is brave and self-reliant and sensible, they have a right to run the Hew Activity In tlie Growth New IruaU All at Ouco aud lllffli i'rottet- ive VatlM to llelp Theui-l'ruHt'. Like MeKlnley, Not Want Cheap Trust-making and tariff-making go on iirith equal force. While the high tariff saruival advances in Washington pro- tected manufaoturera are "getting to- gether" to reap the full benefit that the lew tariff law will give them. The most recent case ia that of the satinet manufaoturera who met in Wor- 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 Amer- 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 says: "We want no return to cheap times in our own country." The trust a'nd 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 fl-ax twine in this country met in New York "to consider the question of uniting with the whole- '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 pres- 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 number- 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 synd'cate, it is an- nounced, will be to shut down a num- 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 McKinloy had given. This seems a very appropriate time to pass Senator Plumb's amendment to the Tariff bill for the admission at half- duty of all articles controlled by trusts. Senator Sherman ought to support that amendment No longer than last Octo- ber he said: The primary object of a protective tariff is to invite tlie fullest comptstit on by imiivid- uals and corporations In domestic produc- tion. If such individuals or corporations combine to advance the price of tho domes- tic product and to prevent the Iree result of open and f ilr competition, 1 would, without amomentfs hesitation, reduce the duties on foreign, goods con.petmi? 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- petition promptly invited. One of the standard arguments for argument reiterated to the point of disgust by protected manu- facturers before the Ways and Committee at that pro- Cur exports of these fcrfciolo to thai country for tho two months aro us fol- lows: 'Juno. 188'J, com, bushols; wheat, 10-V480 bus'-ols. Juno, 1600, corn, 31.441 bushels; wheat, bushels. The value of these exports fell from in June, 18S9, to tho pitiful sum of in Juno, 1890. That ia how "MoKinleyism" narrowa the foreign market for our breudstutfa. In 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 twenty- five cents, and on cora from ten cents to fifteen? Of these two articles we Imported dur- ing the fiscal year ended June 30, just worth from all countries. In attempting to shut out that trifle Mc- 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 "MeKin- But it is not France alone that is pay- ing us back our "McKinleyism" sixty- fold. Canada takes a hand in the busi- ness, too, and has gotten he? trills of re- taliation a-grinding. Among re- taliatory duties which McKinley has given Canada cause to impose is the duty of three cents a pound 011 our lard. We exported to "British North America" for the fiscal year 1SS9 lard to the amount of pounds; lor the year 1890 tho export was pounds. As the result of Canada's duty on lard our farmers aro shut out from that mar- ket It is reported that N. K. Fair- banks Co., the extensive pork pack- ers of Chicag-o, have leased premises in Montreal and w.ll go into tho lard busi- ness there. The report states that they could not sell their American lard in Canada owing to tho three-cent duty. Of course Canadian farmers will furnish the hogs for this Montreal establish- ment. This example shows not only how "McKinleyism" narrows the market for our farm products, but also how it drives American capital out of tho country. Was it in view of a fact like this that McKinley said: "This bill is f i arned in the interest of the people of tho United Let the farmers keep an eye on "Mc- more of this!

But here, in four separate cases and within a week or two apart, protected manufacturers combine to prevent the Tory competition that they pretended to desire. It only goes to prove the in- sincerity of those pleas from interested parties. It is against human nature that manufacturers should wish to have their goods made cheap, and the combi- nations to prevent cheapness, these trusts, give the "lie direct" to the sham ohilanthropy that these men talk when they get before Major McKinley.

Miss MAT-TIE SHAW lately passed the State examination in Pharmacy at Lan- sing, Mich., graduating at the head of a olass of 104 students, 100 young men and four young women. Out of phar- macists who have passed their examina- tion in the State, only twenty have had over ninety per cent., as she did. Miss Mattio Shaw is a niece of Rev. Anna H. Shaw. DK. FRANCES N.

Her subjet, was handled in an exceedingly able manner. Dr. Baker began the practice of her profession in Media about ten years ago. and in spite of much opposi- tion at first to women physicians, has established a practice second to none in the borough. Miss GKACK DAVENPORT, M. D., who is one of the few women physicians in Texas, has been appointed assistant in the medical -department of the insane asylum at Terrell. The Greenville (Tex.) Banner says: "She is'a woman of splendid mind, and a thorough graduate of a leading medical college of Chicago. She has practiced -her profession for several years Jit Texas, and will prove herself worthy of her new position." MRS.

France and Canada Give Us n Dose of "Mc- France's Retaliatory Duty on Our Grain Narrowing the Farmer's Foreign of Can- Ada's Outy on Our tow leyUm" 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 thir- ty-three cents a bushel, which is prac- tically prohibitory. Why this discrimination against us? It is a dose of "McKinleyism" 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 diffi- culties 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 bill which is yet to come. France has simply given us a dose of th'e 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 grain? Tho latest reports from the Treasury Department present the following in- teresting facts: 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 dol- lars cut off from our farmers' foreign market at a single stroke, and 'Tvvas all on account of McKinley." The effect of those French duties Tory clearly show' by comparing our exports to France in June, 1S89, 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 cjpoxia cl wheat and corn to France. A "HOME MARKET." A Case Illustrating tho of tlic Home Itlarket 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 Leage: In every village surrounded by farms there should be located manufacturing es- 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 tlio farm and factoiy 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 Connecti- cut is a State whose manufacturing in- dustries 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 farmingf population there ought to be very pros- perous, and consequently growing in numbers. But what are the facts? Tho farming communities nearest the cities of Con- necticut are shown by tho recent cen- 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. KABTWAIID. Toledo m. 7 m.

The promise of high duties on wool in the near future has not operated toward raising the price of our own wool. Tho New York Dry Goods Economist says: "No better illustration of tho absolute inefficiency of the McKinley tariff to protect American wool and wool growers can bo furnished than the fact that Michigan X fleeces aro now soiling cents, which at the same date last year sold cents, while the appraiser of this port is ask- ing for additional store-room in which to place the large quantities of that are being brought in. That's pro- Getting Kirh. Taxable values in Texas increased from in 1880 to in 1890, a gain of 143 per cent in ton years. And yet tho State has scarcely one protected industry! Texas man- ufactures 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 Texas! On the contrary, she has much moro than doubled her wealth in ten years! And without a tariff to keep out cheap goods! 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 amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
