He was GO years old. who still contends that the franchise : \ir xicholson was au attache of the is a dangerous weapon to place in: senate, the hands of women. No doubt he has mental visions of the women wandering aimlessly around with little lvatchet3 hacking to pieces perfectly good legislation, which we are incapable of either mending or improving. The history of equal rights in other countries proves that the franchise is a dangerous weapon in the hands of'; \yomen. It has proved most disss-' trous to social evils, liquor and gambl- j ing interests, to exploiters of women and child labor, and to indifferent legislators, who have been content to let the welfare of women, children and homes rest on the fickle foundation of human nature, rather than on the sure foundation of the law. On one occasion while taking part In a debate on woman's suffrage. I was much struck with a most battering argument advanced by one of the opponents. He said he had always considered that woman was man's superior and he could see no reason yrhy she should want to come down fo be man's equal. 1 contend that there is no ground for fear on that icove. We women are not in poli-1 tics to come down, we are here to j uplift. Women no longer pull their; skirts aside for fear of contamination.' The tendency today is to uproot rather � t;han to avoid unwholesome condi-; tions. j  ' Agitation for equal rights never i grew out of a mere desire for votes ] *-a mere desivo to do as men do. In ; every country the demand for equal � jfi suffrage came as a result of baffled efforts at reform. When women had employed every legitimate means to secure legislation on affairs of vast importance to them without avail, then and only then, they decided to 'concentrate their efforts to obtain the franchise, knowing that with that �weapon they need no longer beg in i vain; they could buy In an open market. The extension of the franchise to -women has always been followed by legislation of a humane and reforming character. � The Sifton government, backed by .public opinion, has followed out it's democratic policy by extending the franchise to women, knowing full well that we will use it to secure more Equitable legislation for ourselves and our children; knowing that we will iise it to v/ipe out social evils; that wo Vill use it to secure legislation that will make Alberta a safe and wholesome place In which to rear a family. Just hero 1 must draw the contrast j between the difficulties which women \ of some countries have had to con-1 tend with to secure their rights, and 1 iho ease with which wo women or Alberta aro coming Into our own. in -the state of New York the women yivorkod for ten years to secure the [Joint guardianship act.
