Urging Them to Marry While
- - o t,
Marriage and Maternity Get
Little Protection la ruble
They Should Co Punished Like Army
Deserters Look at Hoch, Who Mar
ried and Abandoned or Killed Thirty-two
Women, Correspondent Says.
Cincinnati, Ohio. Tho subjoined
open letter to President Taft. was
adopted unanimously as the sense of
the Susan B. Anthony Club, composed
of representative Cincinnati women.
Dr. Sarah M. Slewors, President of the
club, was authorized to forward It to
Mr. Taft.
To Hon. William II. Taft. President of
tho United States:
Out of tho din raised by a multitude
of voices against the women of our
country for race suicide, for going Into
lndustrln' and professional pursuits
Instead of marrying and rearing largo
families as their grandmothers did, I
wish to raise one voice for a Federal
law that will protect mothers and
children and compel truant fathers to
help support their children.
Deserters from families of children
should bo pursued and punished as
diligently as deserters from the army
and navy. As the laws now stand a
decree for support given to tho moth
er of children can be evaded by the
father going to another State to live.
In Cincinnati the Humane Socloty
reported 2,7700 doserting fathers In
eleven months up to Dec. 1. In Chica
go 1,500 men deserted their families
In three winter months on the west
side alone. The Humane Societies of
other large cities could no doubt re
port similar numbers of deserters.
What beepmes of these men? Do
they become homeless tramps? Not
they. But they go to another State
and pass themselves off for single
men and marry some unwary girl.
Seven years ago a enso of multiple
bigamy was apprehended, who con
fessed to having a wife in thirty-two
different States. His crimes were
treated as a joke, and tho conse
quences to the deluded wives, and to
the faith and trust of all women over
looked. Then came Hoch, who con
fessed to having married many more,
but the rest trusted him with their
money before the ceremony was per
formed, so he did not stay for It.
Somo of tho wives were not easily de
serted, so he despatched them as he
would a tronblesome animal. Now
Madson has married so many women
that he cannot remember their names
and was sentenced for only seven
These three cases are symptoms of
a national disease that must be
stamped out If tho integrity of the
nation is to bo preserved. The germs
of this disease are penetrating and
coloring the minds and morals of so
ciety to an alarming extent, and
In consequence we have an ever in
creasing army of irresponsible bigam
ists and deserters.
The wives of these deserters strug
gle heroically against fearful odds to
keep their families together, but when
the mother must go to work to sup
port tho children there is no home
life, and the street, reformatories and
Jails overflow with them.
Urging women to marry while mar
riage and maternity receive no more
protection thnn our present laws af
ford is futile, for now women can sup
port themselves and need not marry
for a home.
Mothers should have a voice In law
making or they and their children
should be protected In their right to
survive honorably. Respectfully,
President Susan B. Anthony Club.
Cincinnati, O.
Father Fatally Clawed In Saving His
Little Daughter.

Bird Changed Its Plan After Chasing
Chickens Into a House.
Po Ell, Wash. Tho year-old baby
of Mr. and Mrs. Fred. Shepherd, who
live on n farm about two miles from
Pe Ell, was attacked by a hawk a few
days ago.
There were two pet chickens on the
place, which at this time were on the
doorstep. Tho hawk was evidently
after tho chickens and swooped to
ward thorn. Tho chickens ran Into
the house and under the lounge. The
hawk followed and, not noticing tho
chickens but noticing the child, which
was playing on the floor, attacked It
and Bank Its talons into the child's
face, lacerating it.
Tho mother heard tho child scream
and ran to its assistance. She scream
ed and scared the hawk off the child
and it flow Into the kitchen. William
Shophord heard tho noise and came
Into tho houso and despatched tho
hawk with a club. It was a largo
bird, measuring 3 feet 4 Inches from
tip to tip.
Sixth Case of the Kind In Cemetery
at Portland, Ore.
Portland, Ore. When, at tho
Mount Calvary Cemetery, the body of
Paul Limerick, who died ten years
ago, was disinterred preparatory to
removal and reburlal, It was found
tho remains had become petrified.
The features, with tho exception of
the nose and eyes, were perfectly pre
served and tho hair and mustache
were as natural as in life. Tho potrl
fled remains had assumed a dark
brown color.
This is tho sixth case of petrifica
tion found In Mount Calvary In re
cent years, but the other bodies wero
not nearly as well preserved as that
of Limerick. It required flvo men to
remove the body.
Details Slowly Trickling in About
the Slaughter of Jews
in Russia
Special Advices to Papers of Berlin,
Vienna, and London Say that Many
Were Killed and Injured In the
Riots Fugitives Crossing Frontier.
Berlin, Sept. 30. Not since tho
Kishenev massacre of 1903 has tho
German press been so aroused over
an anti-Jewish outrage as to-day over
the reports of tho attack on the Jew
ish quarters of Kleff and its suburb of
Solomka, and the attempt of tho Rus
sian authorities to suppress all news
of the outrage.
The official news agency of Russia
and tho Russian newspapers, under
orders from the government, are deny
ing the story as sent yesterday to
Berlin. That the story was reliable is
Bhown by to-day's accounts from spe
cial correspondents, which bear out
the account, even to the details. In
quiries made of Russian sources have
met with denials, and it has remained
for the true story to filter out through
the special correspondents. Every
paper in Berlin prints long stories of
tho three days' rioting in Kleff, which
began with the Jewish Now Year.
The Morgen Post says that "tho
corpses of many of the murdered
Russians were convoyed to the mor
tuaries and many of tho woundod
wero removed to tho hospitals."
The Tageblatt has a message from
Kleff, via the frontier, to the effect
that between twenty and thirty per
sons wero killed and hundreds wounded.
The Lokal Anzelger has a long story
from Podwoloczyska, tho first Aus
trian town this side of tho frontier.
In part it says:
"Great anti-Jewish riots have taken
place In Kloff, and In tho suburb of
Solomka, where tho Jows live in
large numbers. Armed bands of reac
tionaries marched to tho ghetto,
shouting mockingly: 'Hurrah for tho
equality of the Jews!'
"Tho mobs demolished tho homes
and shops of tho Jewish residents
and plundered everything that thoy
could lay their hands on. In terror
tho Jews fled to tho collars and at
tics of their homes, but in neither
place wero they safe from the savage
attacks. In defending thomselves,
many Jews wero nhot and others were
brutally beaten and fatally wounded.
Tho rioters spared neither women nor
"Tho police watched the rioting
with no thought of Interfering, and
there is no telling to what length it
might have gone had not a deputation
of leading Jows waited on Governor
Gen. Ivanoff, and demanded protec
tion. Troops were then sent to Kleff,
and they dispersed tho mob In short
order and occupied tho approaches to
the ghetto to prevent further outrages.
None of tho rioters have as yet been
arrested, the authorities evidently
condoning the outrage.
"Tho severest censorship is being
exercised to prevent the news of the
affair from reaching foreign countries.
Many Jewish families fled from the
city, and are now living abroad."
Tho Hartunglsche Zeltung of Koe
nigsbnrg, on the Russian frontier, says
that the "streets were littered with
tho prostrate victims, some -dead, oth
ers writhing in agony."
Fugitives from Kieff have crossed
the frontier, and are telegraphing In
dividual accounts of the massacre to
their friends and benevolent associa
tions here and in other cities, appeal
ing for financial aid.
