TUE BALANCE OF POWER
One of tho elements of tho pres
ent presidential campaign that ha>j
not been' given. the attention lt mer
its is tho : feminine vote. Woman suf
frage haB now become much ? more
than an airy abstraction. There will
bo 4,000,000 women eligible to vote
next November. ' Moro, than half of
thom aro "first voters." And Inas
much as it ts ' extremely problemati
cal how they ?re going t? voto, thu
politicians aro' viewing thom with
cvor-growlng Interest, mingled with
fear. . . ...
There is already In thc field a "Wo
man's Party." WJfat... Mutt., '.party
stands for has been made known
plainly by Us Chicago convention,
hold simultaneously wi^Uj^tbe Repup
Hean land Progressiva conventions';/ It
ros, but a single plank. It. stands,
at present, for o singlo ^purpose-rthe
enfranchisement' of alt tho women'' in
the country, by tho some moans that
enfranchised .tho negrr.-^-an amend
ment to tho federal constitution. '
Whethor that self-styled party can|
control'as largo a proportion of fem
inine '.votos, aa lt -.prefesses, .or. wheth
er there ia going to. bo any real, co
herent "feminine vote", at ali, remains
to bo seen. Tho only political body
indorsing lis demandais tho Progr?s-:
'sive -party; Organisations that aro
generally ; supposed t? represent a
majority ot tho women voters are op
posed to federal action, and disin
clined." to partisan action of any sort.
But just what ls going to happen, no
.Tho surent-thing about women, 'n
politics or elsewhere, lp that yon
never" can tell. ' And so to tko other
engrossing features of this ' spectac
ular ? campaign is added the .problem
ot which may the suffrage cat (mean

Ta military, naval and industrial

against Amorlcan lite, property,
