Indeed, they had, land they nev- -er forgot it for a moment. Jane Addams’ audience required thf street to overflow in. She declared the suffrage but a part of ther world’s struggle for the independence -of wo--* men. Mrs-, Joseph Bowen said women would use the vote as. a lever to oust the pernicious, dance' halls, gambling .and injurious- moving pictures. Lieut- Gov. O’H a ra said- the woman’s lobby­ ing for the suffrage bill was the fin­ est-he-had ever seen. Speaker McKin­ ley-urged th e women to keep -out of political' parties. JNIrS'. McCulloch' urg­ ed th e women to. Jose- no- time in pressing on toward full suffrage. Mrs Trout, -the state president said that s-he had discussed the' subject with Gov. Thomas of Colorado 'and that experience proved th a t you couldn’t buy-the vote of any woman, no m a tter how much she- needed th e money. J. H. 'Braley of Pasadena, who proved such a vital force in getting the s-uffrage amendment passed in Ms state th a t he is- called the “fath- ■er of suffrage,” traveled across the continent to tell this Illinois Conven­ tion ho.w well woman suffrage had worked in' California-. He brought greetings! from Hiram Johnson 'and the enthus'iasm with which he was greeted' .added only another touch of joyousness to an occasion replete witl rejoicing. —^At last a woman legislator has been suspended for' six m o nths and the antiS’ can swell up with, proud satisfaction. H e r name is Thekla Hul- tin and this was the- awf'Ul crime she committed; \While in England she went to- a meeting of th e Anglo-Fin- nish Society, a literary and social or­ ganization. \When she went hack to Finland, the Russian Government promptly suspended her from her Parliam e n ta ry duties. —The -census shows th a t there are in th e D. S. nearly three, -times- as many native born women as- all the foreign born men land women put to- geether and yet th e im m igrant vote is listed as* one of th e evils' accom­ panying votes for women. '—The Mayor .of Evanston, James R. Smart, when he welcomed the! del­ egates to the lannual' -convention of the State Federatio-n -of 'Women’s Clubs, said, “When I want, anything done in civic m a tters I call on .Ihe wo­ men. They do- better work than the men. They have the tim e and' they take .time. Many matters- can, be handled much better by the women than by th e men. There, are some things about wMeh men are careless-, but few to which th e women dO' not devote the proper '.attention.” Continu ing, 2Iayor Sm art mentioned a re­ cent health lordinance' passed in the city for the regulation and inspection of resturants, bakeries-, and grocer­ ies. This- had been accomplished, he said, by the -efforts of th e women. —Late last month Lloyd George reiceived a deputation, of suffragists. He told them th a t th e cause was hurf in 'Parliament as the result of the alienation, of the Irish members re- J u s t C ^ i i m BASSETT BROTHERS Hardware and Groceries, Wiiitesvllle, N.

This statem e n t of Ll'oyd Geiorge aroused even, Mrs. Faw ­ cett, the leader of .the 7-3,000 non-mil­ itants organized Suffragists in Eng­ land, to- the defense- -of the m ilitants. /She (called -attention' to -the fact -that the wi-thdrawn support of the Irish m-embers had caused thg defeat of the Councilation Bill in iMarch, 1912 -and .she as-ked how it could have been caused by Mrs. Leigh’s throwing of a hatchet -the next July? . —i\Irs!. Helen' Ring Robinson who has. delighted- many eastern audiences with accounts- -of her experiences' :as state senator of Colorado, is not the only woman senator in. th-e -history -of the country as she has-, been re­ ported. Years ago in U tah there was a m an named Cannon and M artha hisi wife. She was- h is plural wife and by -and by he put her away. Not long after he ran, for th e senate.- M artha ran -against him a-nd .defe-atedi him and thus she became th e pioneer wo- man: senator whose- worthy successor Mrs.' Robinson has- become. —Mrs-. J. Borden Harriman, the first woman member of the Industri­ al Relations -Commission, and said to be the first woman- -ever appointed by the President as .a member of a federal commission, has come out for equal .suffrage. In -an interview she said, “I can’t see how anyone interest­ ed in th e industrial -classes can -help seeing how necessary the vote isi for them. I was for .s-ev^ral years- on the fence in regard to- this question, but in the various lines of work in which I have been engaged, I have seen that the vote will be the greatest ad­ vantage to wage earning women. :My friends in- the settlem ents tell me that they can go so far without the vote and then they come up against a stone wall. The question of women ■and children in industry cannot be divorced from the suffrage question.” —The Bishop of Oregon, the Rev­ erend Charles Scadding, says that he has been converted to woman suf­ frage by seeing how it works in prac­ tice. He lately returned to his form­ er home in Buffalo and in an inter­ view in the Buffalo Express' said, that the commission form of govern­ ment was giving Portland a most ef­ ficient administration and that the vote of the women was largely res­ ponsible for bringing this about. —In spite of the fact that the At­ torney-Gen era,l of California had de­ cided th a t women were not eligible for jury service in ths.t state. Judge Buck in San Mateo County recent­ ly chose a grand jury composed of eight men and eleven women menj- bers. —Both the U. S. Senators from Tennessee have written Sarah Barn­ well Eliott, the president of the state suffrage association, promising to help get votes for v/omen, and thus two more votes can be counted ■on by the suffragists v/hen th e sub- pect next comes up in Congress. —^Anti-Suffragists v/ho are proclaim ing from the house tops that, the voti for vroman means a loss of property rights and other safe guards with which men have surrounded them, are invited to read and ponder Section 495 of th e compiled Laws of Alaska, 1913. It reads: “All laws, which im^ pose -or recognize civil disability on a wife which is afot imposed on a husband, are hereby repealed; and for any im just unsurpation of her property or natural rights she shall have the same right to appeal in her own nam e alone to a court for re­ dress t h a t h e r husband has.” The wo­ men Of Alaska were given full suf­ frage this- year in the first, bill pas'S- ed by th e Territorial .Legislature, Th'Q .Legislature- then, proceeds, not to take away immunities from women but 'to make- sure that, she has equal­ ity with -men before, th-e law.
