THE CAMERON COUNTY PRESS.
ESTABLISHED BV C. B. GOULD, MARCH, 1866.
Woman suffrage, a question before
the civilized world, at the preseuttime,
is attracting opinions and views, from
many different sources. The writer
wishes to publicly express some of his
own personal, individual opinions.
He believes in woman suffrage to a
modified extent, as follows:
Allow women to vote after becoming
< of age, if she marries, surrender her
V the rigut, if she become a widow, re
store the right, if she become divorced,
deny her the right, as she is still
nparried according to The Divine Law,
and may have a tendency to break up
the divorce curse. Prohibit all per
sons, male and female, from voting
who cannot read and write, habitual
drnnkards and prostitutes.
Married woman should confine their
interests and abilities to the govern
ment of the home. It is true, the ma
jority of them have no home to govern,
but, that is not the fault of the hus
baudjitisthe fault of the system of
the country's government.
Whenever slavery is abolished, as
many of you think has been, in 1863,
but, was not, or never has been, then
the wife will have a home to govern,
her husband will be her diplomat, her
protector, her representative to a
broader field of human government.
She will be The Divine Governor of
the family and the representative of
natural government and all that is
pure and holy.
It is true, women are placed in the
very jaws of death, in order to continue
and increase the human race, and suf
fer great hardship in the performance
of this duty, but, they mast also con
sider it is the workings of God and na
ture, and if a women die of child-birth,
her soul flies to the arms of her Saviour
as pure as the new drifting suow, for
she died a martyr to His cause.
Many women places their lives in a
more perilous position by trying to
shrink from that duty and the results
are by more fatal, in death, shattered
health, weak in body and mind, and
their soul placed before God's mercy,
from what is commonly known as,
. Your grandmothers, knew not of
such practices, and they did not want
to vote, but, had all they could attend
to with the duties ot the home. It is
the childless, or the one, or two child
ren in the family woman, who wants
to vote, for scandal being scarce, wish
something new with which to occupy
their minds and back fence gossip.
With apologies to the good, true and
sincere childless woman.

The "True Story of the Cleveland
Gold Bond Isssue," in the April Metro
politan Magazine tells for the first tima
what took place behind the scenes in
that memorable transaction and de
cribes the dramatic interview between
Grover Cleveland and J. P. Morgan at
the White House. It is an important
article and full of human interest.

"Distance Too Great.''
Wm. H. Howard, chairman of the
Farmers Institutes in this county,
meets with many amusing circum
stances while "working up an interest"
in this county. Recently he received
the following: "Heaven—Pearl Ave
nue, Wm. H. Howard, County Chair
man of Institutes, Emporium, Pa.
Dear Sir:—ln reply to reverse side, I
wish you to excuse me and from
attending your institutes, as it has
pleased the Almighty Father to remove
us from your world about twelve years
ago and as the distance is so great be
tween Heaven and earth, I will have
to decline your kind invitation." Mr.
Howard has placed the letter on
file and some day may have a good
laugh with the Pearl Avenue friend.
New Industry at Beechwood.
Mr. J. J. Erich, of Beechwood, who
is busily at work getting ready to erect
a saw mill, hub factory, etc., at Beech
wood, was a PRESS visitor last Satur
day, accompanied by our iriend J-
G. Nyheart. Mr. Erich is a practical
lumberman and will give employment
to from 75 to 100 men in mill and woods
the coming season, the larger portion
of the men to be engaged in cutting
chemical wood. He has moved his
family to Beechwood and occupies the
comfortable house vacated by Mr. C.
R. Kline. Having been actively en
gaged in the lumber business in this
county and Elk for eleven years he is
reliable and a successful operator. It
will take five or more years to cut the
timber now contracted for. Beech
wood will now take on new life and
this industry will be a great help to
that section of our county. Glad of it,
for Mr. Erich is a reliable gentleman
and we are very favorably impressed
with his modest manner.
Edward Fobert, the five year old son
of Mrs. Bertha Fobert, of this place,
died at Buffalo, N. Y., early last Fri
day morning. The cause of his death
was spinal meningitis. He had been a
patient little sufferer with the disease
for about two weeks. Edward was a
bright and interesting little chap and
the death comes as a severe blow to
his devoted mother, who was with him
during his illness and at the time of
his death. The remains arrived at
Kmporium, Friday evening and were
taken to the undertaking rooms ot Mr.
Bernard Egau, from which place they
were taken to St. Marks Cemetery on

i Unique Good-Bye to Rev. Mr. J.
i On Sunday evening last, after
the regular services of the several
j churches were over, Revs, Messrs.
! Bent, Bogue and Tate went down
to the First Methodist Episcopal
j Church to hear the closing words
|of the popular Divine's sermon
| and to say good-bye to him. Rev.
! Mr. Anderson having finished his
| sermon called on Rev. Mr. Bent,
Pastor of Presbyterian Churvh, to
|piv*>ounce the benediction, where
upon Mr. Bent stated that several
of the ministers of our town had
! come to show their 'ird and
igood will for Mr. Anderson, when
I they were invited to seats on the
platform. Rev. Mr. Bent, acting
| as chief spokesman, called on Rev.
I Mj\ Tate, of Emmanuel Episcopal
j Caurch, who said that the words:
| "He was a good man, full of the
! Holy Ghost and Faith," could be
! truthfully applied to Rev. Mr.
| Anderson. Mr. Tate said that Mr.
! Anderson held a large place in the
| hearts of the people of this com
munity; that he wished him even
larger success and greater blessings
in his new field of labor and that
if we were denied the pleasure of
meeting, here that he expected to
meet him in Heaven. Mr. Tate
also spoke of Rev. Mr. Weeks, the
newly appointed Pastor of the
church, as being an enthusiatic
worker, eloquent speaker and con
secrated Christian man—both
gentlemen being natives of Everett,
. Rc,v, Mr. Bogue, Pastor of First
Baptist Church, took as his theme,'
"Ships That Pass in the Night."
He said he had received many kind
words and much good advice from
Rev. Mr. Anderson, which he
treasured and appreciated and had
done him much good.
Rev. Mr. Bent very feelingly
expressed his genuine regard and
affection for Mr. Anderson and felt
very keenly the loss he and this
community would sustain in the
departure of Mr. Anderson and
his estimable family from our city.
Freight Car Consumed.
Special to the Prt(U:—
As Train No. 1)2, east bound,
was passing Benzinger at 2:12
Tuesday morning, Operator W. L.
Keiser discovered sparks coining
from the roof of a box car, near
the middle of the train. He at
once notified the Supt's office and
the train was stopped and examin
ed at Ratl)bun,but nothing was dis
covered until the train reached
Beech wood when the fire broke out.
It was found to be a car of char
coal which had been over-heated.
The car was side-tracked at Beech
wood and despite the efforts of the
trainmen it was entirely consumed
by the flames. Great credit is due
to Mr. Keiser, one of Pennsy's ef
ficient operators, for keeping watch
of all conditions while 011 duty.

WASHINGTON, March 25, 1911.
It is said that the United States im
ported more than forty millions of dol
lars worth of diamonds last year. This
country, as might be expected, is the
greatest diamond market in the world.
It also furnishes the greatest harvest in
world for diamond thieves. It is said
that most ladies of the "four hundred"
wear paste diamonds in order to avoid
the exposure of their real gems to the
j cupidity of the light fingered experts.
; Good scheme, but why pay for the real
I if the spurious will do as well?
It appears that the distinguished
millitary experts of France and Ger
many are strenuously at work to show
that the United States and Japan must
fight. The argument of the German
expert is that the control of the Pacific
is essential to the commercial existence
of Japan, and that in order to main
tain the supremacy Japan must have
the control of Guam and Hawaii as
coaling stations and bases of supply.
But can Japan control the Pacific?
Will not England, Germany, France
Russia and other great European
powers have somethiug to say with
reference to the control of the Pacific?
Great Britain is easily five times as
powerful on the sea as Japan, and yet
she does not pretend to control the
Atlantic or even Mediterrean, of
which she holds be the gates, Suez
and Gibraltar. The Mediterranean is
an opean sea. Japan cannot control
the Pacific. It is doubtful if she could
control the inland sea of Japan, to say
nothing of the Yellow Sea, the sea of
China and other contiguous waters.
The Pacific is by odds the biggest of
oceans, and no nation or nations can
control it. The same writer argues
that the United States has only twenty
three warships in the Pacific, while
Japan has 125. He is mistaken. Japan
has 125 thousand, but they are mostly
san pand, a kind of fishing boat carry
ing two or three persons with a tail
oar. The Japanese will have much to
do with the navigation of tfie Pacific
for they are unexcelled as sailors and
can conduct a carrying trade at less
than half the cost of and American or
European country; but the talk ofaDy
nation oontroling the Pacific is as ex
travagant as it would be to talk of con
trolling the other.
The first step of the extra session of
Congress will be to pass the Canada
reciprocity bill, and the second step
will be, it is said, to materially reduce
the tariff on wool and woollen goods.
If this can be .ccomplinhed, the west
ern Senator who has been called the
greatest shepherd since Abraham will
will lose a million or two dollars but
ninety millions of Americans will wear !
more elegant and more comfortable at- !
A pleasant surprise party was tend j
ered Miss Emma Morrie, last Thursday j
evening, at the home of her parents, j
when a number of her friends and j
schoolmates gathered to celebrate her j
