SCRANTON, Pa,, Nov. 23. The Inesti
mable value of publicity work In a cam
paign such as the suffragists have planned
in their endeavor to obtain the ballot In
1915 was the subject for discussion at the
morning session of the convention here.
Miss Katharine Speer Reed, State pub
licity manager, Impressed upon the coun
ty leaders tho value of conciliating the
newspapers In their communities and of
ubmlttlng timely news for publication,
"The big, enterprising journals of tho
State," she said, "are alive to the Im
portance of suffrage news, but many' of
the smaller papers have to be converted."
In conclusion, Miss Beed said the Johns
town Tribune, the New Castle Herald and
the Wllkes-Barre Times Leader had re
sponded nobly to suffrage advances and
even had issued suffrage editions.
At the end of the conference on pub
licity, Miss Reed paid enthusiastic tribute
to the Evening? Lbdobh and Its fairness
to the cause.

to a total attendance of 1,230,600. The

The suffrage novelty, uch as "the

Norwegian steamship Frani. at Ler

leaded a cargo or supplies for the Ger

In September, but exposure of the

discharged again. At the same time the

A story of n "cute" trick which the
Scranton suffragists played on some out-of-town
"antls" who mado a temporary
descent upon the tonn a faw months ago
for the purposo of distributing lltcraturo
Is being chuckled over In convention
circles. Tho "surfs" when they heard of
the adcnt of the "enemy" put on their
bonnets, nnd In the guise of would-be
converts, went to the opposition head
quarters and took nil the literature that
was given them. Later on they changed
their bonnets and went back again. They
kept this up for three dnjs.
At tho end or that time the "antls," so
'tis said, gave out Jubilant Interviews to
tho papers that nil their lltcraturo was
gono; the Scranton avidity for "antl"
pamphlets was simply marvelous, and
never had they had such a successful
campaign. Meanwhile, the suffragists
announced that their Arcs had never
burned more brightly before. But they
adopted the motto: "I.ook twice beforo
handing out literature," so that tho trick
might not bo turned on them.

"It Is now G o'clock (p.m.), and It wns
then discovered that we were cut off from
the main body. The battalion shook out
to tho attack In an endeavor to break

your son no less than the others. With

an hour and twenty minutes rretty
smart work, eh? I wns on watch In tfle

deck to watch the firing. It looked pretty
awful to see their ships go down, espe
cially one, whose magazine blew up In
one big flare. A lot of German snllora
were swimming, but, as you can guess,
we had no time to pick them up; we were
too busy. You know It would have been
quite possible to have got torpedoed
through stopping. As It was they tried
hard to torpedo us, but our skipper was
there every time, and simply altered our
course and v.e steamed past them. They
fired 10 torpedoes at our ship alone.
"The last to go took a lot of sinking, so
wo ordered one of our destroyers tho Le

vlvors. She sent a boat to her, but when
the boat was being rowed alongside the
dirty cads opened fire nnd blew oft a
lieutenant's foot, and a seaman had Ills
leg blown off. The latter has since died.
Then we gave her a couple of additional
shots to go on with, and she finished. We
captured 30 Germans, Including one ofll
cer. We had all our boats smashed by
concussion from our guns, and missed a
cloud of shrapnel by a few yards. One
thing has been amply demonstrated, our
captain Is O. K., and everybody knows
It. The way he maneuvered our ship
around those torpedoes was marvelous."

scribing the gallant death of her husband,
the late Major P. A. Charrler, who waa
killed while magnificently leading the
Royal Munster Fusiliers, says:
"It Is Inexpressibly painful to me to
