State Senator Pryan. who la himself
an ardent advocate of woman suffrage,
wna a.kerf to advise the Councils of
Hremerton ami Charleston, lie Informed
them that It may te taken as settled
' that the women cannot register to vote
until the LejsUIatura h.ns passed a new
Rut may women iote without regis
tration. In the absence of snrh a law?
"I think they may." answers Senator
Bryan. "The rlsht to vote la a consti
tutional right. While the constitution
requires the IjcRlsIuture to, enact regls
tratlon laws. It does not suspend the
rtxht to vote till the Legislature acta.
The Legislature had to be elected by
voters who were not registered before
It rouM enact a registration statute. I
believe, aince It la Impossible for a wo
man to register under any existing reg
istration law. that ahe will be entitled
to vote at the approaching municipal
elections without being registered."
In the case of Stailcup against Taeo
ma the State Supreme Court held that
all electors, whether registered or not.
l:ai the right to vote at bond elections
wherein the Legislature had not passed
any act aa to registration for such elec
tions. "Our conclusion." cites the opinion. "Is
that the right to vote In this state at
(njr election, general or special. resides
In those possessing the qualifications
prescribed by section 1. article VI. of
the constitution, subject to compliance
only with such reasonable provisions re
specting registration and regulating the
ssrclse of the right, as the legislature
may provide; but the mere failure or
neglect of the legislature to make any
provision for registration does not op
erate to deprive those having the quali
fications of the constitution from ex
ercising the elective franchise."
In some quarters the women are ap
pealing to the newspapers to settle ques
tions In their mind affecting the right
to vote. Hers la a sample letter, writ
ten by Mrs. D. P. ilcCarty. of Seattle:

Lawyers would unhesitatingly de
clare that the woman born In Texas or
any other American territory Is a cltl
sen. and they would probably say that
the woman whose husband Is natural
bed would take the status of her hus
band. This Immediately opena up an
other question which Is being widely
discussed. In some quarters with con
siderable brat. What la the atatus of
ths woman iose husband marries her
In British Columbia snd Immediately
fcrlngs her Into Washington? Does
such a person, formerly a British sub
ject, at once acquire citizenship, or
will oe com pel lea to live live years
In America, the same as a man of
foreign birth, before she can vote?
The women In Seattle are paying
more attention Just now to felicita
tions rhan to the Intricate problems
that may trouble legislators and the
courts later on. Lr. Cora Smith Eaton,
treasurer of the Equal Suffrage As
sociation, figures that the material
benefits to the state will be Incal
culable. She says It mea'ns home
seekers In larger numbers: honest gov
ernment, good schools, good roads and
general refinement. .
"Every woman." she, says. "Is a
booster for the great state which baa
opened the gate of opportunity."
A somewhat similar view Is ex
pressed by Miss Adella M. Parker,
president of the College Suffrage
League, who says the result In this
stats vias given to Washington more
than 10.000 columns of advertising
free as air."
Women Already Planning
The executive committee of the as
sociation baa held a meeting In Se
attle, from which some of the lumin
aries, notably Mrs. M. T. B. Hasina.
were excluded, and settled some I in- '
portsnt points after the most approved
tnethods of star-chamber politics. The
committee tibs fixed January 14 as the
date of a state convention of the Wash
ington Equal Suffrage Association to
te held In Tacoma. Mrs. Hanna, who
did not succeed In attending the ses
sion of ths committee because the door
was closed In her face. Is editor of
Votes for Women. On account of er
experience, the prediction la made that
politlca of the old school will bo tbe
feature of the Tacoma convention, and
that all ths factions which have made
things lively In Cue paat will be active
at that meeting.
city In the rolled States "today In the
line of progress," said K. J. Daly.
"Great trunk lines are penetrating Cen
tral Oregon, which Is Just as rich. If
not richer, than Central Washington.
An empire which many people thought
was only good for Jsrkrabblt will soon
blossom like the rose. With the ad
vent of the railroads Into Central Ore
gon will come numerous Irrigation
projects, and waste land will be mads
lo produce untold wealth In alfalfa,
wheat and other cereals.
"Then the Willamette Valley will
soon be the scene of great activity In
the Irrigation line. Aa a starter, prom
inent capitalists have bought many
thousand acres of Willamette Valley
land which they propose to Irrigate,
thus making two blades of grass grow
wiiere one formerly thrived. Oregon
has been very slack In Irrigating lands,
but that period Is rapidly drawing to
a close, and aa a consequence the pro
ductions or the Willamette Valley will
be Increased greatly. Interurban linea
recently butit and others about to be
built will open up vast territories rich
In timber, grain and minerals. People
with money from all over the United
States are flocking to our favored
state, and nearly all are the class of
people that go to bullj up a state. The
great majority are buying farm, fruit
and timber lands.
"All these will be potent factors In
building up Oregon, and Incidentally
making Portland the greatest and
largest city of the Pacific Coast. Tort
