Harrisburg, June 24. The woman
iiffrage amendment was ratified by the
State Legislature this afternoon.
Tho action, which ipakes Pennsyl
vania the seventh i(afc"T!o"atlfy the
nineteenth amendment to the national
constitution, took place in the House
ijvhen the lower chamber passed the
'Philips Senate resolution finally by a
vote of 153 for and 44 against.
s- Twenty-nine states have jet to ratify
the federal suffrage amendment before
women may vote. Ratification by thirty -Ills
states is necessary.
Hundreds of women seated in the gal
lery overlooking the hall of the House
and on the side aisles of the tloor,
leaped to their feet nnd cheered nt the
successful termination of a fifty-year
fight for equal suffrage in Pennsylvania.
Members of tho House joined in the
cheering. Scores of suffrage banners
waved. When the ovation died down the
House fqr the first time in its history.
gave the privilege of the speaker's chair
to a woman. Mrs. J. O. Miller, of
Pittsburgh, president of the Pennsyl
vania Woman Suffrage Association, vtas
accorded the honor.
Cheers Greet Action
She was accorded the chair on a mo
tion by Representative It. h. Wallace,
of Lawrence county, in recognition of
"the splendid work by the organization
"which she represents in behalf of suf
frage." Cheers and handclapping greeted the
motion of Mr. Wallace.
Mrs. Miller was escorted to the
speaker's chair nnd another tumult
,"Wo felt chagrin when suffrage was
adopted in New York by a referendum
of the voters," said Mrs. Miller, "be
cause we felt that Pennsylvania was
lagging behind. But we felt confident
that national suffrage was coming
."This is the greatest, thing that the
Legislature of Pennsylvania has ever
done. We thank you for your Bplcndid
work. National suffrage will soon be
a reality. If the Democrats of the
South do not give us their vote for rati
fication, you Republicans are going to
get the votes of lfi.000,000 women who
are soon to be enfranchised."
"When New York granted suffrage
to Us women in 1017, in the midst of
their rejoicing for the victory the Penn
sylvania women felt chagrined that their,
great state had not seen fit to deal out
an equal measure of justice to them.
But they realized that the passage of
the referendum bill in the stat,e of New
York meant a speedy victory in Con
gress because with the gain of this, the
largest state in the Union, It meant
that the suffragists could bring enough
pressure on Congress to successfully
pass their measure.
"Pennsylvania today has taken her
place by the side of New York, be-
coum she Has made possible by the rati-
Hhe necessary thirty-six states. A
ear ago when an analysis of ratifica
tion possibilities was made bv Mrs.
Catt, president of the National Ameri
can AVoman Suffrage Association,
Pennsylvania was rated as the most
llfflcult of the thirty-six. The pendulum
has &wung so far and it means that
,vhen this great Republican stronghold
as come out for ratification, every other
iRepublican state will fall Into line.
Furthermore, it means that the Dcmo-

The measure was passed finally by the
Senate by a vote of 20 to 10.
Passage of the Ramsey bill held out

The Ramsey bill was first defeated in

Debato On 1)111 ,
There was n brief debate preceding
the vote. Senator Snyder, Wair, fav
ored tho bill, saying that the state
should fall in line with the spirit of
the national prohibition amendment.
Senator Baldwin, of Delaware county,
favored tho measure. He read a see,
tion of tho nntionnl prohibition amend
ment which provided that both the fed
eral and state governments shall have
power to enforco the amendment.
Speaking against tho bill Senator
Kyre. of Chester county, took Issue with
the Delaware senator and said it was
federal and not 'stato legislation. Sen
ator Kyre read the letter sent him yes
terday by Governor Sproul In which the
Governor fcnld that the Ramsey bill
