THE JOURNAJU CUT XHW OUT WANT TO VOTE. Women at New York's Coustiti* tional Convention, Equal Suffragists Eager to Secure an Amendment—Joseph H. Choate Chosen to Preside. THE OPESISO SJtJiSIO.V. Ar.BA.w, N. Y., JJnj 8.—It was an in- fluenti;il and dignified body of men that assembled in the assombly-cham- bcr of tho eapitol at 10 a. in. They came from every section in tUe state us delegates to the constitutional convention •which was ordered by the people to be held at tho election of a year ago. There are fifteen delegates at larfro. and KIT other dcleg-ates, of whom SO are republicans and VI democrats. Clionte rrimlUuH. Joseph H. Choate, the eminent constitutional lawyer, was elected president Mr. Choate in assuming the chair made a brief address, referring to the fact that this was the sixth constitutional convention in the history of the state. The first was held in 1777 and tho last in 1SU7. HufTn»BUU l)l»!M>i>olutoiL In outlining the duties of the delegates Mr. Choate, in his address, touched upon all tho questions that would eome before tho convention for action: In referring to the women suffrage agitation he said: "The suffrage committee will bo called upon to consider the most delicate of all questions—the extending of tho franchise to all human beings, regardless of sex," Tho many women present expressed great disappointment that Mr. Choate did not refer more extensively to what they consider the most important of the proposed amendments to tho. constitution. The ladies have been cauvassinp the delegates as to the chances of securing tho adoption of the amendment giving them the elective franchise, but have not been very successful, as tho delegates are extremely retioeul about tho matter. It is not expected that tho suffrage amendment will be considered for at least a mouth. Some Amendment*. Among the amendments to be. offered are: Providing for a court of appeals to coualst of llftecu members, with power to sit in three •oparnte purta, or altogether, us thej muy do- tortuliio; provlJiiiK lor blonulal suasions ot tlio legislature; pluclng ull t!": oluctlon nmchlnory in churgo ot u nou-purtlsia board, tho members of which .shuU bo clcctod for Ions terms mid bo Irromovabio except by impouohmont, und with the power 10 compel '.lie corrcotlon of results where u fraud Is apparent; allowtuK municipalities to mnko provisions for tho liustinipttou of all essential monopolies, such as water, electric llghttny, street railroad, und othor entcniriaos; providing for tho consolidation of Now York, Brooklyn und adjacent territory into line l-'rcat city; prohlbllme capital punishment and substituting life imprisonment! forbidding the grautinj; of aay pnbllo franchise or charter for the use of laritl or property belonging to the pooplo without eaiilvii- lont iu money. Woman SufTniBlt 1 ' lu Force. Foremost in interest among the representatives of various organizations in tho gallery when tho convention opened were tho champions of the woman's suffrage movement The arena in which war has been waged so persistently between the prus and antis for weeks past has been changed from New York city to Albany. The vigor of the campaign will not be relaxed here and successive committees will wait upon the deliberations of the convention until it takes definita action on the amendment This question promises to be the one of most absorbing interest among all tho weighty ouca to be discussed by this body of basic-law makers. The books of petitions containing thousands on thousands of names, made up mostly in New York city, where the campaign has been most ardently carried forward, have been sent here and are in the hands of the committee. These petitions are both for and against giving women the right to vote. Tho Interest in tho movement has not been confined to the large cities, but has extended all ovqr the state. Representatives of the different "local lodges" will be here continually, and be relieved from time to time by others. minors After Forclffu Trade. KANSAS CITY, Mo., May S.—At a meeting of the executive committee of tho Southwestern Winter Wheat (Millera' association here, the mov<?mocL to organise a national congress of Hour millers was indorsed. The proposed organization is intended to look after the foreign interests of American millers and to promote the trade of American millers abroad in every particular. Liberty UellH for gi'hooU. WASHINGTON, May 3.-Senator Gordon has introduced in the senate a joint resolution authorizing the secretary of war and secretary of the navy to donate to W. Q. McDowell, of the Columbian Liberty Bell committee, cannon, muskets, swortls, etc., not required by navy or army uses, to be cast into souvenir liberty bells for the use of schools. Will Ante Him to Withdraw. LEXINGTON, Ky., May S.—It is rumored that a delegation ot democrats will soon wait upon Col Breckinridge and present him a paper asking him in the name of the party to withdraw from tue race. Ho W i, Minn., May 8.-H. G, Kaeden reported to the police that he bad been robbed of 12,700 in a lodging house at (V37 Washington avenue, soutn. He claims to have been until recently in a general store business a.t Sanborn, Minn., but sold oat and came to Minneapolis, bringing with him IV?00 in greenbacks. About 11 o'clock Monday nieht he says he went to the lodging- house. His money be placed between the mattress and the quilt He awoke in the mornJnit to find it gone. IN CONNUBIAL BLISS. Courcnhlp Hini MarrluEro fn tho Russian Emplru—IHiltrlinuiiliil Trip*. When a you Dp man in Russia takes a fancy to a maiden ho sends his mother or some other matrimonial medium to tho parents of tho girl to negotiate for her dowry. As an incidental lie has no objection to any chance all'ectiou she may have- to bestow along with it. The girl has no voice in the matter; often has an oiler of marriage accepted or rejected by proxy without knowing anything about it. This custom has ono thing in Its fa vor; it certainly saves a great deal of wear aud tear to her feelings. The marriage settlement being satisfactory the courtship begins. Tho youth must never go to the house- of his betrothed without taking her a gift. A long courtship in this country would bo liable to bankrupt a man. However, it is not the custom to linger long in this primrose border laud. A betrothal is almost as binding as marriage itself. There is never a slip be twoen tho cup and the lip, save for very grave and serious reasons. At the betrothal feast the girl cuts off a look of her hair in the prcBence of witnesses, in order that it may bo authentic, and gives it to her betrothed, who in turn gives her u silver ring 1 set with turquoise. These rings arc kept as heirlooms in the family, but never must they do duty twice, They nover use a second-hand engagement ring in liussia. What becomes of tho lock of hair, history does not inform us. It is safe to suppose, however, that it depreciates in value as the years roll on. A well-to-do bride brings her husband a dozen shirts, a dressing gown and a pair of slippers. She is supposed to have spun the flax and woven tho cloth und made the garments with her own hands. The fact is, she often buys them ready-made, as wo do In America in this ready-made ago. Before the wedding the dowry is on exhibition and is blessed by the priest Thus we seo that in Russia, as well as other places nearer home, the most interesting part of tho ordinance of holy matrimony is the avalanche of good clothes it brings will) it. In tho upper and middle classes the bridegroom gives a bachelor dinner tho night before the wedding. The bride- elect at tho same time goes with her friends to the bath. At the appointed time the bridegroom comes to claim his bride, Sho falls upon her knees before her parents and craves forgiveness for the follies of her youth. They kiss her, giving her bread and salt, typifying the necessities of life, leaving the door open behind her when she goes out, indicating that she still has a homo in her father's house. We have now the happy pair at the altar, with lighted tapers in their hands to signify aspiration, tho loud voice of the priest uttering a short prayer; the ring which they exchange witheaoh other in token of the trinity, and the cup of wine from which they drink, a symbol of eternal love. Three times the bride parades around the altar with a crown of gilt held just above her head, \>y an important functionary whom she chooses for the office, but iio must on no account tread on tho hem of her garment or derange her headdress, as he will bo denounced by the lookers-on for a heretic. This personage has also other connubial porterage to look after, lie must attend to the lighted tapers and carry the piece of carpet upon which the couple are to kneel for the priest's blessing. Uy the way, the ono who is •first to touch this bit of carpet with the foot is supposed to rule the domestic kingdom. It is only fair to say that the bride usually gets there oil timo. Thus ends the symbolic marriage. Although the service of the Greek church is more dramatic and fuller of significant detail than tho Roman church, aud that is elaborate compared with the German or Protestant church, Russia they ilo not. waste much KNOWLEDGE Brings comfort nnd improvement and tends to personal enjoyment when rightly used. The many, who live better than others and enjoy life more, with less expenditure, by more promptly adapting tho world's best products to the needs of physical being, will attest the value to health of the pure liquid laxative principles embraced in tlio remedy, Syrup of Figs. _ Its excellence is due to its presenting in the form most acceptable and plena- ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly beneficial properties of a perfect laxative ; effectually cleansing the system, dispelling colds, headaches and fevers and permanently curing constipation. It has given satisfaction to millions and met withjtho approval of the medical profession because it acts on the Kidneys, Liver and Bowels without weakening them and it is perfectly free from every objectionable substance. Syrup of Figs is for sale by all druggists in F 50c aucfll bottles, but it i» manufactured by the California Fig Syrnp Co. only, whose name is printed on every package also the name, Syrup of Figs, ibd Ibeing well informed, you will nofc accept Any substitute if oner»* real sentiment on marriage. There ar« parties who regularly contract for niarriapfu unions, a kind of real estato agency in connubial felicity, upon which Uicy <rct a percentage of tho spoils. There wove marriag-e fairs held for- niuHv in St. IVtoi-sbur^ ami MUMJOW, but now only in provincial tmvns, where men ami maids resort. The rich man may take his pick. Sometimes ivoplo travel lon£ journeys to attend lliOMj fairs. Now, how- evur, the better classes do not, so they are the popular resnrt of servant frirls, wlioffet a week's leave of absence for the marriag-e fair and often come back unweclded, but as much demoralised as a colored cook in the south of our owii land after a camp meutirijr. Jn this blessed laiui of Russia, where "more than half mankind arc woruun," old maids are very scarce. When a woman is not married at twenty-five she disappears from view, goes o'n a pilgrimage or round of travels, and comes back posing in society as a widow. I'Xiquuttc in Russia forbids ;iny allusion to a lady's dead husband in her presence. You see a woman's life in that land is not complete without the adjunct of a husband, or even the g-liost of a husband, to frive it a kind of eold rcspcct- ability.—Detroit Free Press.
