Before the woman of Utah emjoyed the elective franchise those who clam ored loudest for Its being extended to them wero parties who had no political "axes to grind," and who wero filled with the bitterest feelings of animosity against the people of Utah. They fool ishly imagined that if our sex iu this Territory had the legal right to vote, they could lead U3 by the arts which politicians aro accustomed to use, to turn against men whom wo had tested through long years of trouble and sor row, and follow their lead. Upon no othor hypothesis can their urgent de mauds on Congress to bestow the right of suffrage upon us be explained. For when the 'territorial lesi&lature did enact such a measure, and it became law by the signature of acting-governor Mann and the approval of Congress and when they found that we could think, and tliatthinkiii'' we intelligent ly supported the candidates of our cnoicc, they were even more clamorous that Conirress should nnsa jl law .io.
