WOMAN SENATOR TALKS
TO LARGE AUDIENCE
JIBS. HELEN' RIXG ROBIXSOX
HERE UXDER AUSPICES OF
STATE SUFFRAGE ASSX.
The Court Boom Was Nearly Filled
AVlth Women Tuesday Xifilit
Few Men Present Conditions In
The women of Honesdale came out
In force Tuesday night to hear Mrs.
Helen Ring Robinson, Senator from
Colorado, talk In the court house of
the movement concerning votes for
.women. There was a sprinkling of
men present but It was obvious that
the fair sex of Honesdale are be
coming very much Interested In tho
suffrage movement. Mrs. Robinson
Is distinguished by the fact that she
is tho only woman Senator in tho
United States or perhaps in the
world. She came here under the(
auspices of the Pennsylvania State
Suffrage Association. Dorin's Boy
Orchestra rendered selections be
fore and after the address. W. J.
Barnes Introduced the speaker in a
few well chosen words. The meet
ing was opened by a short benedic
tion given by Rov. C. C. Miller.
"The movement," said Mrs. 'Rob
inson, "is more than merely a ques
tion of suffrage. It Is a world-wide
spiritual movement. The white fire
of idealism is in it. It is closely
allied to the best interests in both
men and women. All political par
ties will sooner or later put woman
suffrage in their platforms." She
named the several states where the
right of women to vote has been
placed on the statute books. These
are California, Arizona, Wisconsin,
Ohio, Illinois, Colorado, Utah,
Idaho, and Wyoming. These states,
she said, are going to decide who
will be our next President. In the
west the party lines are not closely
drawn. They are the doubtful
states. Women who have gained
the ballot there, are not for the most
part not strict partisans. This is
rather to be expected when we take
Into consideration tho character of
the women and the character of the
men who have been holding office
heretofore. The women themselves
will decide the question. The des
tinies of the country will bo settled
only by the vote of western women.
, The Eastern women, she went on
to say, are not getting their share
of.it. They are falling behind.
Mrs. Robinson said that she had
been offering a gilt clock in many
places where she had been to any
one who could give her a good logi
cal reason why women should not
vote. She said that she still had
"Some of tho objections to wom
en voting in Colorado," said Mrs.
Robinson, as offered by eastern peo
ple are, first that men and women
are not alike. The husband votes
one way and tho wife another, there
by causing family troubles. Anoth
er objection is that women spend all
their time in voting and neglect
their homes. We in Colorado do not
spend all our time voting. We do
not vote any oftener than they do
In Pennsylvania. In my precinct
we vote in the Sunday school room
of a church. In the early days It
was customary to vote in the back
room of a saloon. It usually takes
me twenty minutes to vote and I
have plenty of time to devote to my
home. Another objection frequently
held up in New England is that they
may lose the respect of the men.
The women are fearfully disturbed
over the fact. Tho men of Colorado
have not lost the respect for their
woman, rather their respect has In
creased since the women have gain
ed the ballot.
Many say the enfranchisement of
failure. The loudest in voicing this
nre the corporate Interests, liquor
dealers and others. Tho rest of us
are quite well satisfied after eigh
teen years of equal suffrage. There
Is no talk of taking the vote away
from women. It could not be done
for tho women would have to vote
on the proposition as well as men."
Mrs. Robinson in a light hearted
and pleasant manner held the at
tention of her audience throughout
and there were times when much en
thusiasm was shown.
"Tho most serious argument In
favor of suffrage," said Mrs. Roh
inson, "is the real argument of the
evening, something people should
take homo and think about; the one
logical argument is, the eternal jus
tlce of the ballot. Tho woman has
just as much right to it as man. The
emblem of suffrage Is life, liberty
rtri hflTinlnosfl. Tf In Tint n niipntfnn
eternal Justice of the thing! The
justice is taken up in one thought,
The ballot is a wish. When a man
votes he makes a wish. Is there aiiy
justice in the thought that woman
have no right to wish? I believe
the home Is the proper place for
women; but It Is the proper place
for men too. The State of Pennsyl
vania needs a woman to do the
State housekeeping, The men don't
know how. It needs a woman to
see that there Isn't any batching
going on. We clean out the closets
and clean up politics generally. Add
to tho states betterment by getting
the ballot as soon as you can.
"Women are Interested In pri
mary things that do not appeal to
man. Man provides for the home,
You look after the spending, and
when the state touches the home
you will be prepared to fight for
your interests. The men look after
their business Interests with care but
when the state touches their Interests
they guard them. There Is no fault
to bo found with the manner in
which business interests of the state
have been handled, but there needs
to bo a woman to look after the
primary things wnjch directly or
Indirectly affect the home.
"The greatest discovery of the
age In 1900 Vas the discovery of
women by herself.
"The things that will Interest
women when given the ballot will
be the care of the child on tho
streets in the cities. It will give vit
al strength when you get the vote.
Leave the business interests to man.
You look after the home Interests
and the interests of the other wom
en. You can do that better than the
men in tho legislature. Women
have a stronger idea of mercy. It
is stronger than man's element of
Justice. The two should work to
gether to make tho' perfect state.
The woman will bend the general
law to fit the Individual while tho
man Invariably bends the individual
to conform to the general law. He
does it, too, as much as possible!
"Women are better than men in
certain ways. They are nearer the
spiritual world than men. Their
moral aspect is stronger than in
men. Some of the things the wom
en, have done for Colorado are put
ting on the statute books laws re
lating to women and child. In all
legislation concerning the home,
women and children, Colorado leads
the way. Until women were given
the ballot they were not the guard

mado an urgent appeal to the men
to support the cause and give women
tho ballot. "If tho woman is unwill

must be something wrong, so she

COMMUNITY LOSS IN
DEATH OF MR. LYBOLT
LIFE HISTORY OF ONE OF BEST
CITIZENS OF DAMASCUS
Ho Was Born in Xcw Jersey nnd
Came to Wnyne In 1874, Living
Hero Ever Since With Exception
of Timo During War.
In tho death of Lewis A. Lybolt,
of Fallsdale, the community has sus
tained a distinct loss and Wayne
county has lost one of her most pro
gressive and best farmers and one
of her most loyal and patriotic citi
zens. Mr. Lybolt was born at Han
burn, N. J., in November, 1843, and
grew to manhood in Sullivan county,
N. Y., where ho received his educa
tion in the public schools. He com
menced lumbering in early life and
followed this occupation until his re
moval in 1S74 to Wayne county, with
the exception of tho period of the
Civil war when he rendered service
to his country and his flag.
Since the war he has devoted his
time to the development of his farm
at Fallsdale, which is. one of tho fin
est in Damascus township. Its splen
did condition is due to the unremit-
LEWIS A. LYBOLT.
ting care 'and energy which he has
bestowed upon it. He was respected
everywhere as one of the best citi
zens in his tqwnshlp and county.
Mr. Lybolt served his country for
over two years during the Civil war.
He enlisted in 18G3 in the 9th New
York heavy artillery under Capt.
Wood, with whom he served. In the
army of the Potomac and with Sher
idan In the Shenendoah. His first
engagement was at Cold Harbor in
18C4, after which he was engaged in
the battle near Harper's Ferry, Md.
When the Rebels marched. on Wash
ington his command helped to
drive them back, following them
along the Washington Pike to
Snicker's Gap, where they had a bat
tle which resulted in heavy losses on
the rebel side. They remained near
Harper's Ferry and on September
la, 1SU4, took part in the battle of
Winchester. At this battle tho color
bearer of the regiment was hot in
the early part of the fray. Mr. Ly
bolt seized the colors before they
could touch tho ground and carried
them at the head of the battle lino
for the remainder of the battle. The
next day the Rebels made a stand
at Fisher's Hill where Mr. Lybolt's
command was again engaged and
they subsequently fought them at
Newmarket and Staunton, near
Richmond. They then came back to
Middletown in the Shenendoah val
ley, and on October 19 met the
enemy at Cedar Creek. In this bat
tle Mr. Lybolt's company bore the
brunt of the fighting and after the
battle was reduced to nineteen men.
When Sheridan reached them they
forced the Rebels to retreat, tak
ing a large number of prisoners. In
November the regiment marched to
Richmond where they encamped for
tho Winter. On April 2nd, 18G5,
they participated in the charge on
Richmond, and Mr. Lybolt was shot
in the chin while scaling the breast
works. The ball lodged In his neck
and he was taken to the City Point
Hospital from where he was trans
ferred to the hospital at Washing
ton, from which he was honorably
discharged In June, 1865, when he
returned to his old home.
In August, 1868. 'Mr. Lybolt mar
ried Miss Sarah J. Slsson of Sullivan
county, New York. They made their
nome in Mongaup valley until they
settled on the farm in Damascus in
1874. Five children have blessed
their union of whom two now sur
vive, Mr. Lybolt is survived by his
wife and Lewis Lybolt of Fallsdale
who made his homo with his par
ents and assisted in conducting the
farm, and one daughter, Mrs. C. R.
Jackson, of BInghamton, N. Y. Mr.
Lybolt was. a member of the Odd
Fellows and of Captain James Ham
Post, No. 198, G. A. R. Ho was a
man of deep religious conviction.
He had served his township as super
visor and was one of the County
Board of Viewers appointed by tho
Court of Common Pleas of Wayne
county under the provisions of the
Act of Assembly of 1911. He was
patriotic to the last and even to the
end Insisted that the flag he loved
so well should be displayed. When
his mind carried him back to the
storming of the rebel forts at Rich
mond during tho last day of his Ill
ness, he said to his wife. "I r.m't n
hero while the batteries are storming
the forts." Men of his caliber are
rarely found and their departure la
a loss to tne wnoie county.
