the words with which Mis. Jeanetie
Morfeu of Watertown. auffrage leader
of Jefferson county, recently summarized
the movement In her district,
Dftermltied steps are already being
taken for an active campaign by the
women. Local clubs nre being organ-
Ized In man of the tow ns and villages.
The extent to which this phase of the
work Is being pushed may be estimated
by the fact that Jefferson county alone,
with a score or so of townships, ha.
some eighteen of these local clubs. The
chief function of these societies seem
to he the agitation of the question hv
means of "Vote for Women" parade.,
occasional public meetings and the dli-
trlhutlon of literature.
However, the most effective medium
for spreading the campaign, especially
In the strictly rural district, la probably
the Orange. In this nrganl.atlon. which
forms the chief soolal centre for most

CAPER TON LETS FRENCH

Admiral First Gets Sanction From Washington Indi
cations That United States Will Take Over
Control of Negro Republic.
Washington, Aug, 1. After asking
for and receiving permission of the
L'nlted States Government, tho com
mander of Hie French cruiser Descartes
has been allowed lo land a detachment of
marines as n guard for the French lega
tion In Port-au-Prlnc. Haytl.
This development, announced here to
day. Is regarded as emphasizing the pe
culiar obligations of the l'nlted Stales to
France In the present situation in nayii.
It Is viewed here as Indicating not snly
thai It consider Itself In sole charge of
'the situation at the Haytlun capital,
where Hear Admiral Caperton Is In military-
occupation of the city, but also an
Implication that France holds the United
States solely responsible for the present
The commander of the Descartes illei
not merely Inform Admiral Caperton of
an Intention to place an armed guard at
the French Legation but specltlcally
asktd If he might be permitted to do so
Admiral Caperton did not give this per
mission himself until he hod asked In
structions from Washington, which I In
Itself regarded as a fact of some sigmn
cance'ln relation to the International
situation In Haytl.
When he reported the French com
mander's request to Secietary Daniels
the latter conferred with Secretary Lans
ing, The conclusion was reached that It
was titling that the French Legation
which was violated last week by the
Ha llan mob should be guarded bv
French marines. Accordingly Instruc
tions were sent to Admiral Caperton to
permit the landing of a small French de
tachment, and he was also ordered to
lend hla cordial cooperation to the com
mander of the Descartes In placing a
guard at the legation of his Goveinment.
