OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Oct. 28. Members of the Con
gressional Union, A'hich is leading the
tight for a suffrage amendment to the
Constitution, have selected two Republi
cans to introduce and manage their
legislation in Congress this Winter,
Senator Sutherland, of Utah, and Rep
resentative Mondell, of Wyoming.
In view cf the fact that both houses
are Democratic, and the further fact
that all suffrage resolutions will go to
committees presided over by Democrats
and having a majority of Democratic
members, the selection of these leaders
occasioned surprise, for it clearly in
dicated lack, of faith in Democrats, who
normally would take charge of such
legislation in a Democratic Congress.
The Congressional Union never has
abandoned its idea that it must look
mainly to Republicans to pass the suf
Union Ignoren Chamberlain,
" We. : have scored a great success,"
said Miss Alico Paul, chairman of the
executive committee of the Congres
sional Union, "in getting so learned a
lawyer as Senator Sutherland to present
to the Senate and work for the amend
ment to remove from the ballot the
qualification of sex."
She makes no reference to Senator
Chamberlain, of Oregon, who led their
tight in the 63d Congress, but the fact
that he has been dropped and that a
Republican has been selected by the
Union to succeed him carries the im
pression' that the Union is still hostile
to the Oregon Senator. It opposed him
lik his campaign for re-election.
Tactically, the Congressional Union
may have erred in asking Republicans
to manage their resolution before a
Democratic Congress. Action may be
construed as a discourtesy to Senator
Thomas, of Colorado, chairman of the
woman suffrage committee of the
Senator, and to Representative Webb,
chairman of the House committee on
judiciary. These two Democrats pre
side over the committees to which the
suffrage resolutions will be referred,
and unless thqy delegate the honor to
others, they will handle the resolu
tions. Home Chairman Foe of Suffrage.
Representative Webb voted against
the resolution at the last session. Mr.
Webb naturally would not be expected
to introduce the suffrage resolution, but
there are Democrats on his committee
who do favor suffrage, and the fact
that these Democrats were ignored may
tend to stir up strife.
So fare as Senate leadership is con
cerned, however, the stand of the Con
gressional Union is puzzling, for not
only is Senator Chamberlain a believer
in woman suffrage, but so is Senator
Thomas, who is chairman of the com
mittee. When a new leader is to be
chosen, courtesy would require that
Senator Thomas .iave opportunity to
decline. Moreover, the fact that Sena
tor Chamberlain led the suffrage fight
in the last Senate would ordinarily give
him the right of assuming leadership
again in the coming Congress, especially
as he has declared his adherence to the
cause, notwithstanding the fact that
the suffragists opposed him a year ago.
Other Members Not Barred.
The mere fact that the Congressional
Union has selected Sutherland and Mon
dell to lead their tight does not give
these Republicans the right of leader
ship if Democrats undertake to sup
plant them. But these members have
accepted the- commission and will in
troduce the Anthony resolution. On the
other hand, the selection of these two
Republican leaders does not bar any
other member from introducing the
same or similar resolutions and there
is no guarantee that the Sutherland
and Mondell resolutions will be the

WASHINGTON. Oct. 30. Support of
the National guardsmen of the country
for the Administration's defense plans,
including the formation of a conti
nental armv. was virtually assured to
day at the conclusion of a two-day con
ference between Secretary Garrison and
members of the executive committee
of the National Guard Association, and
the National Militia Board.
Some opposition to the continental
army scheme developed yesterday when
the conference began, but Secretary
Garrison was succssful in convincing
the guardsmen of the wisdom of the
plan and also that no steps would be
spared to promote the interests of the
National Guard because of the new
General Foster, of the Florida Na
tional Guard, chairman of the executive
committee, issued the following state
ment: "The report of the executive com
mittee, which has been prepared here
and which will be submitted to the
convention of the National Guard As
sociation, which meets In San Francisco
November 9 to 11, will recite in detail
the history of the sustrested military
i..ii9iiitn and will outline the general
military policy which the Secretary of
War now proposes.
"It concludes with a recommendation
that the National Guard Association
address its best effort to securing the
introduction in and passage by the next
Congress of a bill to improve the
efficiency of the militia and embodying
the principle of Federal compensation
for military service, this having been
r,i on hv all miltarv authorities
as necessary to enable this branch of
the service to realize the standards now
prescribed for it by law.
"The National Guard officers' meet
ing here felt that they could not. in
their representative capacity, give ex
nrpeinn with reirard to all of the pro
posals embraced in the plan of the
Secretary of War until after such plan
has been fully considered by the or
ganization which they reprctent, but
from individual expressions it may
safelv be assumed that the sentiment
of the National Guard will be favorable
to the recommendations or the hecre
tary with regard to a necessary In
crease in the standing Army and also
to his proposal for the formation of a
force of citizen soldiery which has
been referred to as a continental army
and which it is proposed to organize
