This la th statement made today by

taste of election-day politics in one. of

Chinamen did not seem .to appeal to her
strongly Just then.
But the discouraged words by no
means expressed the- aentlment general
ly existing among the women workers
who stood about tha, polling-place.
Most of them wore upon their face an
expreaslon of stern resolve. They felt
that they wer consecrated to a great
.work, and said so. Though their feces
paled anon when a man -reeking with
the fumes of liquor passed By, they
stuck steadfastly to their, places and
pasaed out their election literature.
Nearly all were a little nervous, some
became almoat hyaterlcal at times, but
all tonk their work very seriously;
Soma were better worker than others.
Some Stood apart from the men and
huddled together In groups of two or
three and did not pass their cards ex
cept when a male with a ministerial ex
pression came along. Others went
among the men. button-holed them.
Joked with them and acted as on who
had been born to ward-heeling.

tha anttsy-the women turned uut tn a
