Alice Paul Charges Louisville
Road With AntiSuffrage
Declare He Influenced
Change in Attitude of
V (Bt 1 nlveraal SfrrW.)
A powerful anti-suffrage lobby,
financed and directed by the Louisville
and Nashville Railway, is
working feverishly to defeat woman
suffrage in Tennessee.
This charge was made yesterday
by Miss Alice Pful, chairman of the
National Woman s Party, declaring
that the Louisville and Nashvill?
Railway was owned by a Connecticut
holding company, of which Senator
Brandegee. of Connecticut, is
tl^ chief figure.
Some of the poor dupes in Nashvill#,'*
declared Miss Paul, "do not
realize that they are victims of a
plot to return this bitter anti-suffragist
to the Senate thi? fall. Senator
Brandegee ha? good reason to suspect
that if the women of Connecticut
have the vote through ratification
of the national amendment,
they will subject him to an ignominious
Spfaker Change* Atlitnif.
"Mr. Walker, speaker of the house,
is a young attorney who has. on
many occasions, given the most fervent
assurances that he would support
suffrage. Recently he was
made an attorney for the Louisville
and Nashville Railway and the result
is the otherwise inexplicable
change of attitude evidenced in his
message to President Wilson yesterday
refusing to support the suffrage
Miss Paul said that the suffragists
believe they now have a majority of
five for ratification in the Tennessee
house, and are making, ever* ear
deavor to obtain more before the
vote is taken. The house may pass
on suffrage tomorrow, and if the
amendment fails suffragists will
seek to obtain a reconsideration of
the measure in the Tennessee legislature.

The number of draft deserters ha*
been reduced. It is said. from an
apparent total of 300.000 to 173.911
The higher figure originally was
due to the fact that men who had

who received physical disability
