Grimke Polls - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, is not commonly...
Hyde Park, Massachusetts, is not commonly sensational town and does not often press itself upon tho attention of the world in suoh a lively way as it did yesterday. There was an election for local officers, and the long - suffering sex, represented represented by Mrs. Grimke - Wild and sixty others, the telegraphic reporter insolently adds, "of hot at all uncertain ago," resolved to asBerfc their nghts in a practical way. They marohed with then1 ballots to the polls and were there "greeted with a storm of hisses and groans, shouts for Briglmm Young, and the like." Now, if the people people of Hydo Park havo no bettor arguments against woman suffrage than these their side the caso ia weaker than has been supposed. tho women had the right to vote at town meeting thoy should havo been permitted to do so quietly and in order. If they bad not the right thero surely was open to the majority a more croditablo way of settling the question. Mr. Sylvanus Cobb unexpectedly appeared as tho champion of tho female voters and procured for them a chance the ballot;box. Cobb ought to render some sor vico to women for tho incalculable damago ho has clone them. If there be a man who has contrib uted more to the weakening and impoverishing of the average sowing - girl intellect, or to tho precip itating of water on the feminine brain, than has Cobb by his drivelling and omasculatod fiction, his name does not just now occur to us.
