New Zealand has an infant mor- tality rate which is lower than that of any other country nnd but half the, size of the estimated [American rate. The small rato in the islands Is largely duo to the ac- tivities of the.'.New Zealand Society for the Health of Women and Chil- dren, an organization upon which Miss Lathrop has recently trans- mitted a report to Secretary of Labor .wiison.

WIFE GETS OFF EASILY In Matter of Parental Responsi Argument Against Votes for Women. By ALBX. W. SAMUEU N common with every other politi- cal creed, woman suffrage has, more to fear from the folly oE its ft tends 'than from the assaults of its enemies, if the militant wing of the .rty had brought the cause of woman suffrage into scorn arid disrepute b> reaching to physical violence and then breaking into. Indignant or whin- ing protests is called upon to endure physical punishment, the mor- al suasion has earned for itself a considerable measure of ridicule and contempt by accepting without ade- quate scrutiny many arguments which rest upon inaccurate- hist.ory or upon unsound law. Ihe for the .employment of I militancy by women in the agitation; for the parliamentary franchise in England is based upon two grounds 1. That men have always employed force to secure their political rights and 2. That tlm laws of England are so unjust to women that they have boon coinpeiled by the Indignity of their condition to acts of lawlessness com mon to all outlaws. As to the first argument suffice it to say that physical force .is the ono argument not at woman's disposal and that in the example of "the brutal exercise of muscle traditional with men )ioman hah nor The second is illogical, because the breaking of the law -is no proper method to employ in a constitutional country in order to secure, the .pro Motion of existing law or the passing of .a new law. To any that the present Jaws are inadequate for women's pro- tection and then to proceed to violate all tlie laws of society that protect both men'- and women is, hardly a logical attitude indicating the fitness of women to be called into the legis latire councils of a great nation.

The only favor- wo possible excep haye been org lercsted to make Jn townships lion relates to the divorce, '-and that would have been altered if public opinion had been heodecl. The only reason that divorce law re- form has been halted on its way to the. statute book is the strong clerical Opposition expressed through tlie High Church bishops In the House of Ixirds and the High Church laymen In the House of Commons. There Is no need for women to havo.thc vote to secure that reform. It ..will be secured by the gradual ascendancy of secular will over priestly influence in Parliament. In actual divorce court practice the distinction of the grounds upon which divorce is granted is more nom- liiai than real, it behig held that when there.
