'ArutNTIC ClTT, 8pt. 9. The forty
4lguth annual convention of the National
'tyoman, Suffrage party ended to-night at
gvmeeUng whloh wan decidedly an anti
Climax'. So many of the delegate
fcojirded trains for home at the clove of
vthe afternoon session that there were
B6t enough left to make much of a show
IrMhe new Nixon Theatre.
VThe night of the many cmply Beats
earned to have a depressing effect on the
speakers, Herbert Parsons of New York
and Raymond Robins of Chlcngo. Their
addresses sounded singularly tame after
Ue storm and stress of the week's debat

Mr. rarsonn tost no time In telling the

' "I am sorry," he said after Dr. Anna
Howard Hhnw had Introduced him. "that

publican platform, ho told the audience,
"was not all they could havo wished It,
but It gave lllm a vantage ground to

'He assured the surfs that he believed
their had a splendid chance to win New

"Ton only lacked one-sixth of tho

"Get that one-sixth, win New York and

lies 'with us. especially for the Federal
"Whichever party gives us the vote,"
Dr. Shaw assured Mr. Parsons, "will
find us not unmindful of the service."
Mr. Robins, the Progressive leader
,ho Is working for Hughes, made a long
speech, chiefly about the social Injustices

"and I shall go the limit for that which
promises the most speedy enfranchise

.promises, no academic words."

'Mr. Robins said h hail once "mi, or
the," feet of Thomas Jefferson," but that
fcenow believed in the collective govern
ment of the Republicans. Part of his
speech was devoted to Germany, which
'he) said lie loved. There was enthusiastic
applause and cheering when he declared
for "the method that would bring the
most speedy enfranchisement of women."
, With not a dissenting voice, with the
Democratic) women mild as doves. Mrs.
Carrie Chapman Catt put the National
Woman Suffrage Association on record
to-day aa pledged to a resolution which
means practically the same thing as the
resolution against which the delegates
'fobght so stormlly the last two days. In
Jts accepted form It reads:
netolved. That the forty-eighth an
' amal convention of the N. W. S. A. In
structs Its Congressional committee to
concentrate all Its resources upon a
determined effort to carry the Federal
amendment through the last mcsMou of
'thr Hlxty-fourth Congress. Jt pledgee
the support of the State organizations
and authorises the national board to
lake such direction of the work In tho
States as may ba necessary In Its
Judgment to accomplish this end.
. "The whole trouble was that Mrs.
Catt's first resolution was too raw and
Muut In Its wording," said Miss Mary
Garrett Hay of New York, Mrs. Catt's
right hand worker.
Jilrs. George Bass of Chicago and her
cohorts say the board has given way
and, that, the adopted resolution Is dif
ferent not only in wording but In mean
Uig. So everybody Is happy and agreed
that the National Is going to keep ulong

"I think It possible that It may pass the

Amendment and as a prouilse? I do.
Jt was as clean a promise as man ever
made, and I think he means It. He might
haye promised more, but wo would have
known that he couldn't do It. 1 don't see
now, after what has been said by both
Candidates for the Presidency, how any
Republican or any Democrat, either of
fice holder or voter, can refuse to support
the Federal amendment for woman suf

Raymond Robins, who Introduced yester
day the resolution to have the N. V. 8.
A. "support only those candidates who
support the Federal amendment," said
she was delighted with some parts of Mr.
Wilson's speech. Mrs. Iloblns'a resolu

"I was delighted when the President
told us that he had come to fight with
tie," she said. "I wish he could have r aid
more, but I am glair that he said as

reply of the British and French Govern

Minister of War. that "It Is not likely
Great Britain will change her blacklist
policy at the request of tho United
States," was nn Item of diplomatic In
formation which was unwelcome at the
atate Department, and the admission by
Lloyd George, Secretary for War, that
the British censorship of malls Is used
to help British trade also was decidedly
displeasing. But It is understood that
the Administration Is particularly con

the railroad brotherhoods and the rail

by the Berlin Foreign Office as tho first

ARRIVALS AT THE HOTELS.
trade of this country has Increased In a
world of relaxing trade restrictions, tho
report says that If either tho allied or
the Central economic alliance seek by
differential tariffs to prefer each other, a
discrimination against the products of
the United States Is bound to be crented.
That more treaty making will be In
progress In tho five years after the war
than In any similar period of the world's
history Is the forecast made. In thla re
spect It Is pointed out Hint many of our
treaties with foreign powers are ancient
nnd out of tuno with modern Ideas nnd
therefore the Htate Department should
Immediately provldo skilled resources for
the study of the situation.
Regarding tho allied policy of direct
subsidy to foreign trade, the repot t cays:
"Tho recovery of u portion of the
American gold rescrvo which supports an
unprecedented structure of domestic and
foreign credit Is essential to tho restora
tion of European prosperity after the
war nnd this would logically seem to be
one effect of the economic nlllances now
being devised and nnd tho plans being
tnld for inoro Intensive competition
which wilt bring back i tho trade which
by the curtailment of European produc
tion and competition has given American
merchandise a greater access ta Euro
pean markets and a larger share of neu
"A violent reversal of the flow of gold
would rudely disturb the structure of
domestic bank credits reared upon It.
The primary safeguard must be a stimu
lation of exports of the merchandise re
quired In peace to take tho place of the
abnormal demand for munitions and ab
normal export of other articles. A dimi
nution of our present Inflated export
trade Is Inevitable, but tho danger Is
that European cooperation and trade
preferences may be carried so far as
artificially to restrain American foreign
trade nnd carry It below our normal
equity in world commerce."

Secretary Lansing said to-day that he
had noted the statement of Lloyd George
with reference to the use of the censor
ship to help British trade, but he gave

There were many evidences that the
policy Lloyd George suggested was
viewed here as unsupportable In Inter

brought out the suggestion that although
the Phelan amendment denying use of
American mall, cable, telegraph and ex
press privileges to citizens of foreign
countries Interfering with American
malls was stricken out of the retaliatory
legislation recently passed by Congress,
the measure as enacted contains authorl
zattons which might be construed as
broad enough to allow the President tn
retaliate against unfair use of the cen
