Women's Political Union Offers Optimistic Programme. CLOSES WITH A "VISION" "Woman Enfranchised" Ends Afternoon After "Bobbies" Invite All to Parade. London "bobbie?--" requesting suffragettes to march In a street parade'. This is the truth that is stranger than Action. The amazing deed really took place , yesterday afternoon at the Republic Then* ' tre between the acts of the En?ter matines ! given by the Women's Political Union, j Yea. the "bobbles" were converted by the suffrage oratory to such an extent that I tbeir enthusiasm had to find vent in r-.ctlon. I and they threw themselves upon the audl- | ?nee, demanding signatures to pledges to j inarch in the suffrage parade. They must tase been extremely susceptible to reason. ' these John Bull "bobbles," because it could | not have been the feminine charms and graces that converted them. The scene was Tra.alg.ar Square during a militant meet? ing, nnd Mary Keegan. looking none the better for the rioting through which the had passed non-unsc_-iifcd, had harangued the hooting crowd. Xo. with her hair in horrible wisps be? side her face, her hat askew, her ill fitting waist and bedraggled skirt hanging pre? carious iy hy two Bafetypins, she was obliged to have recourse to logic. The parts of th. policemen were taken by R. C. Beadle and F. Friedman. Harold brown was an extremely irritating dude of the rnonocled type. He stood superciliously on the outskirts of the crowd, but all of a sudden be had a clever idea. "Oh. I say. now!" he called to the suf? fragette 'Don't you wish you were a man?" "Yes, don't you wish you were?" was the awful retort. The dude slunk away crusied. p.rd he did r.ct appear later in the aisles soliciting parade pledges. H. C. Jackson and O. A. Rogers were art stu? dents in the crowd, with flowing locks and hair and huge sketchbooks, upon which they record ?d their impressions of the suf? fragettes, presumably for the edification of the London comic sheets. They were not popular with the "Honest Working Man in the Crowd" (Harold Herts), or with the "Suffragette Paper Sellers" (Rheta Childe Dorr and Anna Friedman). In startling contrast to the London suf? fragettes were the tableau? in "The Vision of Brave Women," which followed, Mrs, Otis Skinner, wife of the actor, herself a star of no mean magnitude before her mar? riage, read the poetical devices wh'eh ac? companied the pictures. The poems were written by Mrs. Wilfred Lewi?. Mrs. James D. Livingston was Margaret Erert. the first "brave woman" In'America to claim the vote, or, as the old Maryland record has It. "Came Mistress Margaret Brent and did demand both place and voyce." Mrs. John Rogers, sister-in-law of Secretary of War Stimson. represented Abigail Adams, the first woman who threat? ened militant methods, proving, as one suf? fragette hotly said to the. other, that there s nothing new, by George, even in the methods of the modern suffragettes." Abigail was the good wife of John Adams. lhe found time between darning his rocks and caring for his children while he was off making a government *o write him thas: *y* have ro vole? in the law. you __-k? "*.'.?.at wonder If unjust law? we break Now look that you to our cause be Croe, Or we'll foment s rebellion, too. But John (continuel the poet), who'd have died at Freedom's need, Just laughed at the letter and paid no bead. ?One of the most charming pictures was ?hat of Deborah Logan, a Pennsylvania ne and model mistress of a Colonial household. She sat In the midst of her maids, with their spinning wheels an_ n.edlework, around the great old fireplace. They all wore real old heirlooms, full skirted gowns, and 'kerchiefs, with crisp white muslin caps on their curls, and they workei as they listened to fair Mistress Deborah reading aloud to them from an Instructive hook. "What a contrast," sighs the programme, "between these girls, workinz under the care of this gentle lady, and modern women tolling in swestt ? The climax of the tableaus was the vistos of "Woman Enfranchised." showing lilts Inez Milholland In a classic white robe and blue velvet cloak, with one arm protect* li__iy around the little children at her *<-et. and the other mercifully sheltering the "scarlet woman." The children were little '?lies Fre.ericka Watrous and lisster Will* lam Chanler. the son of William Astor Chanler. Miss Vida Milholland, sistet of Miss Inez, was r flgnr?? in the group. There were sixteen tableaus in all, show? ing Pocahontas, Prlscilla, Margaret Brent, Hannah Penn. Abigail Adams, Lydia Dar? rach, Molly Pitcher, Deborah Logan, Eliza? beth ?Cadi Stanton. Suesan B. Anthony. Lc__.fc-.ia Mott, Ida Lewis, a "Daughter of t_,e Confederacy." Julia Ward Howe. Clam Barton and "Woman Enfranchised." Among tho?e In the audience were Mrs. Caroline B.

MABEL LEE Thf* vniinc Chinese woman who want?*, a vote. CHINESE GIRL WANTS VOTE Miss ? ee Ready to Enter Barnard, to Ride in Suffrage Parade. Regarding her as the symbol of the new era, when all their women will be free and unhampered, all Chinatown is proud of little Miss Mabel Lee. daughter of the mis? sion pastor, Dr. Lee Towe, and her brilliant accomplishments. Her parents brought her to this country seven years ago, and she learned quickly so much of English, Latin and mathematics that she is now prepared to enter Barnard College. Miss Lee inherits from her father a strong mind and an admiration for Ameri? can institutions. The mind is. indeed, so strong that it compels her to look through what she considers the one defect in the institutions?namely, the limited franchi;.? She thinks that should be extended to women. Therefore she intends to march in the suffrage parade on Mav 4 Xo, not march, but ride on horseback, in Miss Annie R. Tinker's brigade of horsewomen who will head tr.e procession. She will be clad, like the rich and fashionable suf? fragettes around her, in a tight nttinic black broadcloth habit and a tri-cornered black hat. with the green, purple and | whi'e cockade of the Woman's PolPlcat ! Union. When the Tribune reporter saw her yes- ' terday at her home, Xo. 53 Bayard ftr?-et, however, she was in her school dress?a plain Chinese Jumper, similar to the Amer- ; lean middv blouse, a blue serge skirt and ? very American hlack patent leather pumps Clinging to her skirt was a baby sister ln a red Chinese Jacket, and the long straight pantaloons which most Chinese wear In their homes, e'^n in New York. Miss Lee's mother Is the link that holds her and her missionary father bound to the eld era. Mrs. Lee Tnwe has feet about two Inches long, encas?M in red suppers, am* she seldcm goc-s out of the house i^he would have to descend four flights of stairs tc- do so, but it Is not a question of ? om fort only. She Is high caste, and It frould not be seemly for her to walk in the streets, observed of men. Miss Lee means to learn .11 she can of American ways and to go baek to China to teach her sisters there. She believes that woman's rla'-e In ln the heme, and that her education should b? prt-rarll-- f^r the satisfaction Of 1er husband. "How can a marriage l.e happv*"' she asked, "anlese th? wife l?< ?d'i'-nied ennueh to understand and sympathize with her husband in his business and Intellectual in? terests" Thp.t seems to be the great differ? ence between the American and the Chinese Ideals of education. The Chinese Ideal Is to mike the trlrl a comfort and delight to her parent?- and later to her husband The American Ideal is to help the girl toward h?-r . wn improvement f.ir h?-r own pleasure.

Over gravelled paths the guests were led to the tablis that had been placed on the grass plots, and here they sat and dined and admired the. famous tapis vert, and away beyond l<-s Grands E'aux, on which trie lights flarhed illusions of the rain? bow. The fleur da iys reigned s'^preme. In the corners of the garden plots the lilies of France were reproduced in white pansies, the intertwined "L. L." so familiar to visitors of Ver-at'les were outlined with pansies of a deep purple hue. and above thera rested the crown of violets. The menu was consistent with the milieu. There were dishes a la Trianon, a la Marie Antoinette, and in everything, najne, time or manner of service, the age of Louis Seize was recalled. And when the dinner was over and colored attendants In blue liveries had served cigars and cigarettes, a pierrot and pierrette danced Into the garden, and, to the accompaniment of a guitar, sang "Au claire de la lune, mon ami Pierrot." Then came Marie Antoinette herself. Four Swlts guards ?jarried the huge sedan chair, from which she alighted to execute her "Danse des fleurs." The minuet, too. came into lta glory, danced by ala Utile court ladies and two Imposing courtiers, to be followed by Rus? sian dancers. Then the guests themselves sought the ballroom in the chateau be? yond, and here they danced, interrupting their pleasure only for a short time for siipper. m RICHESON COST STATE $7,030. Boston.
