Cheers or. Mcmann then warmed up to his work and urged that the evening Mirror he forever dim out Dud from the hearths and firesides of the workingmen of Altoona. Or. James Curry asked if the letter in the Mirror signed a Workingman a was the Point upon which or. Mcmann took offence and Sai i that if so the editors were not responsible for what the letter had said As he knew the columns were open to All at any time. He said this is a Public meeting Aud everyone had a right to be present that every editor had a right to express his own opinion through the columns of his paper Aud those that did not like such opinions should not take the Paas this is a free country and no is compelled to take any one per one a the musical paper devoted to the interest of music Only forty cents a year single copies five cents.

He further thought that some men at the last meeting had drawn the lines too close by excluding certain kinds of workers from a party of men of sine w Aud muscle. He then asked that the following Resolution be adopted so As to place the party Square before the Public resolved that it is the sense of this meeting that its deliberations Are open to the press Aud Public generally and that we invite the notice of the press to our movements in this respect believing that it will further our interests by inciting our fellow workmen in other sections of the country to like movements. Or. Mcradu stated for the information of or. Curry that a a Workingman so article was not what he had reference to but that he took exception to an editorial in which it stated that the labor Reform party was composed of a sore Heads Aud was the duty of women to secure the right to the elective franchise that there will come a Day when a legislature or a Congress will not be considered As representing the whole people of a state or a nation until women As Well As men shall sit As its duly chosen members. This we think rank heresy. Woman in the first place was Only a fractional part of Man Aud where and when did she make the great leap that places her Side by Side with Man. Ages on Ages have asserted the natural inferiority of woman and it is Justice of course that extends the ballot of those of a the less fashionable As Fred. Douglass Calls them and denies it to those Horace Greeley Calls the less muscular sex. The first question in the catechism a what is the chief end of Man a and the answer a to serve god and glorify him forever should be followed by a a hat is the chief end of woman a a and a to serve Man and glorify what a vast amount of Wisdom and thought is displayed in bord Bacons remark a a Cook Book and a Bible should compose a woman a Cook Book first if you please. I wish to relate one or two instances of the superiority of the male intellect and Trust that none of Hie readers of the i Rhoe will accuse me of being in sympathy with the woman a rights question. A poor Man has applied for a divorce on the grounds that his wife married him under false pretences. He says she told him while he was addressing her that she could Hoe an acre of potatoes Aud split a Cord of Wood Between breakfast and dinner and she has proved herself a fearful fraud for she can Only Hoe three times across the Field Aud split half a Cord of Wood. It does seem hard that men Are continually to be made the victims of these designing women. Why will wives trite in this manner with the tenderest affections of their husbands ? Why will they shatter their heart strings and dispel their fondest Hopes ? it is the old Story of a Noble trusting heart deceived. How much happier would this whole souled specimen of the Superior sex have been if his wife had emulated the example of the Shoshone squaws ? one of them digs turnips All Day Aud wheels them Home in a cart while her self sacrificing husband in the Depths of his unspeakable love sits on the door step smoking Lone Jack tobacco and meditating upon How Many drinks of pyrotechnic Al rum he can put in his Jug with the Money his Squaw will bring Bim. Tiue love is always hopeful of the future masculine ingenuity will find cause for Blissful dreams whether in a walk throwing her violently to the ground sustaining a fracture of the thigh Bone. Or. Fay attended her. On saturday morning or. Allen Mcglathery residing on eighth Avenue met with a severe Accident. Accompanied by his wife he was driving out to his farm East of this town when in the neighbourhood of fourth Avenue Aud the Public Road the horse shied at a Kite which a boy was Hying. At the same time a Holt which was holding the shafts of the Spring Wagon dropped out causing the Wagon to run in a Zigzag fashion striking a Stone or some other obstruction jolting out or. Mcglathery. His foot caught in the Wagon and he was dragged along on the ground the Hack part of his head and shoulders receiving several ugly bruises. The horse was unmanageable but mrs. Mcglathery caught the lines Aud succeeded in checking it. Or. Mcglathery was removed to his residence and drs. Bay and Ross attended him.
