By a practic ally unanimous vote today the senate took up the woman suffrage amend ment to the constitution, after having temporarily blocked it. - - . Senator Poindextor, continuing a statement which Senator Lodge had in terrupted by a demand for the regular order of busintss, declared suffrage for woman is now accepted by even the most hardheaded men as "wise and justifiable." Senator Reed, Missouri, an oppo nent of suffrage, began a filibuster in the senate against a vote on the suf frage resolution. Beed announced he was prepared to talk indefinitely on a motion of Senator Jones, New Mexico, to sidetrack the army bill for further consideration of suffrage. At 2 p. m. the suffrage .resolution was automatically displaced by the $12, 000,000,000 army bill, the unfinished business of the senate. But for some time debate continued unchecked on suffrage until Senator Chamberlain, in charge of the army bill, and a friend of suffrage, demanded the army measure be taken up and suffrage laid aside.

He scored Von Ca pelle for saying the U-boats would keep American soldiers from France "and there are 700,000 of these troops now thene." He derided those militarists who said America wouldn't enter the war, and said German domination of Esthonia and Livonia "pompously called liber ation of smaller peoples," is "deplor able and hopeless."

''People living in London aud Paris do not realize the strain they are under," said Mrs. Bertha K.

"Two days before I left Paris a shell from the German long range gun fell a couple of hundred yards in front of me. Not having a Gallic temperament I ran away from and not i'.to the smoke and fumes, and took refuge In a shop. Not a single sales woman under the frail Inss roof of tho establishment seemed disturbed by the catcstropheo in the street. They went on matching samples and measur ing materials as calmly as though the systematic boche could not be relied on to forward another momento of him self in fifteen minutes. , "Six shells fell between noon and half past one that day and except for a mounting curiosity and his racial ambition to be able to tell of being within twenty yards of a bursting shell' and coming away unscathed the Frenchmen evinced no emotion. ''The big gun and the Cothas have not made panic in Paris. Much less have the Gothas weakened the London er's genijs for 'carrying on.' But after the waV, when all the new evolved faculties of resistance against shock which have come like supplementary senses to the people that need them, are left without purpose or function, thre may be a general uneasiness such a I felt during my first night in New York. We may hear as much of peace shock then as we hear of shell shock now. "The absence of war conditions comes to be the abnormal state of af fairs to the person who has spent a year or more under the Gothas. To land last night and find not only un dimmed street lamps, but unshuttered windows, and moreover to see the un loved moon in the sky and then to ex perience not so much as raid warn ing, amounted to a shock to my nerv ous system. I understand now the plight f the war correspondent I know who is kept awake by the crickets and nightingales at the chateau where ie lives and has to get up to tlif i front where the guns boom to get a night' rest now and then."

KEREIISKY HOPES TO HAVE RUSSIA BACK Willi ALLIES Tells Friends There Are Definite Indications of Bet ter Things In Future i BOLSHEVLXI YOKE WILL SOON BE THROWN OFF Dramatic Appearance of Rus sian Leader Cause of Varied Press Comment By Ed L. Keen (United Press Staff Correspondent1) London, June 27. Alexander Kflren- ' sky, Russia's "man of destiny" told friends today there are definite indica tions that order' will speedily be re-established in Russia with the aid of the allies and America, resulting in the creation of an "east front" again. He said it is positive that Russia- is ready to join the allies, as soon as tho yoke of bolshevisin is thrown off. The dramatic and unexpected appear ance of Alexandor Karensky at the la bor party conference yesterday- raised many questions concerning his future; actions and Ms connection with the al lied policy toward Russia, which may lk explained in his speech befiye the conference today. ' "I bear witnea that the Russian peo ple will never recognize the Brost- Ll tovsk peace treaty, which aims at th annihilation of Russia," Kerensky de clared in his address before the confer ence. - i J .f ' I consider tlia bolsheviki as Ger man pawns, Russia has lost practically all the freedom she won through th revolution. She has gone baik io the same cznrdom." The Mail says the government did not invite Kerensky to England, bnt that he. asked the right of asylum as a pri vate citizen. However," continues the Mall, "it is wondered whether Kerensky brought ' an invitation for 'allied intervention from the Russian moderate socialists." It is reliubly reported that Koronsky favors intervention by all tho allies- even though one country furnishes most of the troops under the slogan "Fight ing Germany ", while not interfering with Russia's internal affairs. Kerensky is said to believe that al lied intervention will unite tho present warring factions opposed to ths bolsha- viki nnd is reported to have intimated that Russian military assistance is pos sible, if it was used only in a defensive way.
