The Scarcity of water yesterday morning the Scarcity of water yesterday was not caused by shutting off for the new sewer on Portland Street but by a break in the main pipe at Stroud water. The old main pipe has been turned to the High service Supply and this with the reservoirs will ensure a full Supply until the pipe is repaired at Stroud water. There were some interesting mistakes in the City and Deering. Many people finding that the water did not respond when they turned the faucets and know ing that the morning was intensely cold concluded that the pipes were Frozen. Many people spent an hour thawing them out. One Deering Man triumphantly told his neighbor in an electric that he had had a hard Job but had conquered and obtained water. An inquiry As to the time when he won the Victory showed that it was just the hour when the water was turned on again. Che Beague Island.

Alderman Mcgowan said he had heard a great Deal of complaint. He had no doubt of the ability of the officer. But the question is shall the City Day the salary the officers duties should be very definitely defined. He would like to have the Case postponed until More evidence from the other Side was presented. In answer to or. Josselyn or. Mcgowan said that he understood that the complaints were on account of unnecessary expense. Alderman Guptill in regard to the pay ment explained that the statutes of Maine state that the Board of health May employ a plumbing inspector and the City May pay the expense. The Only question is whether we have the Money. If the Man performs his duties acceptably we ought to have the Money to pay him. City clerk Dyer said that at the last meeting of the committee on accounts the pay of the plumbing in Spector was recommended not to be paid the reasons being two first that the. Board of health had no right to employ the Man and second that there was no Money. City solicitor Barra Bee had been seen and said that the Hoard had the right to employ the Man. In answer to questions or. Dyer said that the work was Satis factory now although there had been dissatisfaction at first. Up to six weeks ago there had been a Good Many com plaints against or. Straw. Several cases were cited where it was shown that the office was a necessity. There is not the slightest cause for com plaint. Alderman Brackett being called said that he was not in favor of the Board himself lie is not acquainted with or. Straw but thinks his judgment poor. Has heard a great Many complaints. People do not understand the duties of the office and there seems to be a cat under the meal somewhere. But the Mao ought to be paid. Alderman Mcgowan said that Inas much As the lower Board had adjourned the order could not now be passed. It was then voted to Lay the matter on the table.

After singing by drs. Frank pay son and the Reading of a Etter from miss Elizabeth u. Yates Rev. 3r. Henry Blanchard spoke first. As a Oung Man he had been won by Lucy stones earnestness to the cause of roman suffrage. From that time until Ier death he had known her intimately. When he was pastor in Indianapolis he had assisted her in starting in that City the woman suffrage movement later he had been associated with her on Many occasions and he was proud to say that he looked up to her As his Leader. Horace Greeley had remarked to him that Lucy atone among All the woman suffrage agitators had kept the milk of human kindness in her breast. Miss Anthony was often a in spite of her at Rengh of character but in All the years that he had known Lucy Stone or. Blanchard did hot remember that he had Ever heard her use a bitter word she was nevertheless intensely Earnest. Or. Jane lord he Sorn followed speak ing briefly of Home life and simplicity of character. recited a memorial poem which was cordially received. gave a very interest ing sketch of the famous suffragists life mingling with it some delightful per Sonal reminiscences. Mrs. Osgood met Lucy Stone at one of the meetings of the to mans federation to a Short walk from the Hall of meeting mrs. Blackwell during that walk told her of the Tri is of her youth How she worked her Way to Oberlin sleeping on the deck of the Steamer because she had no Money for a stateroom How she be Gan her first Campaign tacking up her self the posters for her meetings and after the address passing the hat around herself because no one would do it for her. . Stevens in the concluding address spoke warmly of the great character of the dead Leader and of per Sonal recollections of her As she appeared during the meetings at the worlds fair. The last time i saw her said mrs. Stevens was in May last in the to mans building on the exposition grounds at Chicago the occasion being the reception Given by the Board of lady managers to the to mans Congress. As a member of both bodies i was commissioned to see that no distinguished per sons were overlooked but that each should be properly recognized. In the crowd that surged around the Assembly room. I found Luck Stone. She said she did not feel Well hardly equal to the attempt to reach the platform but her daughter Alice encouraged her and together we made the Way. As mrs. Potter palmers lords of gracious and cordial greeting were being said 1 thanked god in my heart that Lucy Stone had lived to see this glad Day of women but mingled with the Joy was a pain because she did not seem so physically Strong As usual. Four months later came our state . Convention. Mary Livermore was one of the evening speakers. Sitting by my Side just before l was to present her to the audience she whispered to me do you know that Lucy Stone is dying of an incurable disease she cannot live Many weeks at most a adding in pathetic words yes weave begun to go. Aud i thought of the Trio of Noble women Lucy Stone Mary Livermore Aud Susan b. Anthony whose feet for years had trodden the hard pathway so much easier for us to Day because they have walked in it. I did not wonder that mrs. Livermore in her address that evening spoke of immortality As i never had heard her be fore of that great free life As Noble As the aspirations of our hearts As won Drous As the Marvel of our brain As mighty As the Faith that fastens itself to god. October 10th, while the convention of the worlds and National . Was a my in in the memorial Art Palace Ohi Hugo a Telegram came which told us that Lucy Stone was dead. A hush came Over the great audience there was a pause in the business appropriate words were spoken and we recalled the pleasure she expressed at being with us at our last world s convention in Boston. again Sang Aud Rev. 1. Luce pronounced the Benediction. Mrs. Baileys address and that of mrs. Josephine r. Nichols of Indianapolis were 011 the evenings programme. The address of the president mrs. Bailey began As follows s one of the most sacred of All rights is the right of suffrage and to Rob any one of that right except for committing crime is overstepping the Bounds of consistent moral human authority. It is a Standard fact that All men a and consequently All women and men Are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights and among these Are life Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness. Surely there is no Liberty happiness or Justice in being robbed of the Power to protect ourselves our Homes anti our loved ones by the Power of the ballot which the is mightiest Power in government. Again it is a standing fact that Taxa Tion without representation is tyranny. I paid in taxes yesterday under written protest and i shall contine to pay them under protest if i pay them at All till i have representation in the government Ami thereby help to make the Laws to which i submit or till Earth removes me to a place where Justice is meted out to All. The cause of to mans suffrage is be coming More and Mote popular every year in Maine and in fact it has made rapid advancement throughout the United states British provinces and Europe in England women have the Power to vote on All matters except electing members of parliament. The last act of parliament on this line seems to be the last step but one towards full and equal suffrage and lady Henry Somerset says they will have full suffrage before we of the United states have it. Let us not permit it but hasten to the front ranks with celerity. All intelligent people now acknowledge that equal suffrage is coming sometime. Perhaps the new Century just at hand will find the country on the new plans of Progress through government by All the people not by half As now. Let those that Are doubtful and think it impossible remember that it is the impossibilities that happen in these Days of discovery and invention. During the last two years the cause in our state has taken Long strides of advancement and we confidently Hope that the next legislature will give municipal suffrage to the women of the state. A Bill asking for this was As you know presented to the last legislature and was ably advocated by Many of the Ablest members but Defeated in the House by a few whose Only reason was the silly Ana really untruthful one that women do not want to vote. continued speaking fitting words in memory of Lucy Stone Black Well detailing the efforts made by the woman suffragists in the last legislature and reviewing the Progress of the cause in other states and countries.
