it is paying the salaries of all slate
officials. There Is no occasion for
a lew suffragists to get rampant and

If they want to "make a showing"
and set a pace for their Eastern sis

eral thousand, members should take
up a popular subscription among
themselves and raise the amount for
the special session.' The extra ses

an appropriate amount for each of
the suffrage enthusiasts to donate for
the special session besides they
would thus win added honor.
