"Second, nor can we be 'starved

raw materials, in violation of interna international

are not fatal. We have in our own

through for an unlimited time. We

themselves into savings. These again

larger. Notes and deposits in the

formal informal conference Thursday on the
Mexican situation between Secretary
Lansing and the ambassadors from
Argentine, Brazil, Chile and the three
ranking ministers of the South Am

The South American countries are
to act jointly with the United States
in regard to Mexico. It is understood
that this would be welcomed by them
and it is believed it would carry out
resident Wilson's plan for a closer
relationship between the United
States and her southern neighbors
and show the United States considers
the Mexican situation the common
cause of the Pan-American groups
and that the United States has no idea
of territorial aggression in Mexico.
Armed intervention is not regarded
as likely to be the next step, but it is
known that should an armed force In
come necessary to open up .the rail

Latin-American countries would be
willing to do their share. It is also
known the United States has kept

VII. Hon. Elihu Root
On Woman's Sphere
The Question of Woman Suffrage Is an issue before
the American pecTle. Twelve states have adopted It,
four more states vote upon it this fall and it is strongly
urged that it become a platform demand of the national
political parties. It Is therefore the privilege and the
duty of every voter to stuly carefully this subject. Hon.
Eliha Root, m discussing tnis question berore the Consti Constitutional
tutional Constitutional Convention of New York, recently said in part:
"I am opposed to the granting of suffrage to women,
because I beiieve that it vould be a loss to women, to all
women and to every woman; and because I believe it
ivnnl.-J h an inlurv to the State, and to every man and
every woman in the State. It would be usrlr? to argue this if the ripM cf
CMfmtro Tvero.a natural rirht. If it wore a natural TizYA, thn women shouH
have it though the heavens fall. But if thrro b ar.y or.o thing settled in the
long discussion of this sublet, it is that suffrac- is rot a natural neni. oui is
cimT.lv n mpanc nf government, and the sole question to be discussed Is
whether government by the snifrafo of iron and women will be better gov government
ernment government than by the suffrage of men alvr-e.
Tntr. tt-.v inmor.t. sir. thrre enters no element of the inferiority of
woman. It is not that woman is inferior to man. but it is that wman is
different from man; that in the distribution of powers, of capacities, of
qualities, cur Maker has created man adapted to the performance of certain
functions in the economy of nature and society, and woman adapted to the
performance of other functions.
Wcman rules today by the sweet and noble influences of her character.
Put woman into the arena of conflict and she abandons these great weapons
which control the world, and she takes into her hands, feeble and nerveless
for strife, weapons with which she is unfamiliar and which she la unable to
wield. Woman in strife becomes hard, harsh, unlovable, repulsive; as far
removed from that gentle creature to wherr. wo all owe allegiance and to
whom we confess submission, as the heaven is removed from the earth.
The whole science of government 13 the science of protecting life and
liberty and the pursuit of happlresa. In the divine distribution of powers,
the duty and the riht of rrf'tection rests with the male. It is so through throughout
out throughout nature. It 13 so with men. and I. for one. will never consent to part
with the divine right of protecting my wife, my daughter, the women
whom I love and the women whom I respect, exercising the birthright or
man, and place that high duty in the weak and nerveless hands of those
designed by God to be protected rather than to engage in the stern warfare
of government. In my judgment, tnis wioie movement, arises irum wi
