one of the speakers and Mrs. A. , Bon

a happy speech, full of hope and prom
ise for the success - of the movement
In thr next campaign. Mrs. Dunlway,
-who was In her usual optlmlstio mood,
refrained from making a set address,
preferring to s-!ve the time to younger
speakers, but she read-a characteristic
letter from the honorary president, Mrs.
Henry Waldo Coe, of which the follow
ing is an extract: :., f ... -
. Could Sua Stats Without Mea,
'Although we dldv not st . the Ust
election- get votes enough to, win, we
discovered ourselves, . and, in case of
war with the allied powers of the
world, to take away all of the men, we
find that we would have women enough
thoroughly - qual Idea, to fill all offices.
Ablgair Scott - Dunlway and Clara H.
Waldo could grace ths- lnited States
senate and Mrs. Emma Culoway. Mrs
Elisabeth Dorr and Mrs. W. Wvnn
Johnson, could go to congress. Mrs. Eva
Kmery Dye could be secretary of state.
Mrs. Frederick - Eggert would make a
capita) governor. Mrs. rancia Oottshall
would ahlne as state printer and no
body could outshine Mrs. Professor Al
len as superintendent of publlo instruc
tion. In Portland we could have Dr.
Esther Pohl as chief commissioner, and
Mrs. Sarah Evans as chief of police.''
- Seu-Oovennteat Sighs Asked., -
, Mrs. Elisabeth Craig, a" woman with a
soft southern accent, spoke enthusias
tically of the equal suffrage outlook,
which, divorced from "-all slds Issues,
was now before -the voters as the single
issue, "Equal rights to all and special
privileges to none.
--We do not ask for the posrer to gov- (
ern men, said . the speaker. "We
couldn't do it ir ws would,, snd we
wouldn't do It if we could. But we do
ask the right to govern ourselves as in
dividuals." Mrs. A. Bonham,' the financial secre
tary, gave a brief, practical address, re
plete with wisdom . and womanliness.
One man said to a reporter, speaking
aside, "The man that would deny the
ballot to a woman -like that If no other

OH and die." , , '' .
The reception at the headquarters of
