CONGRESSMEN SPAR .
TO GIVE SUFFRAGE
Women Advocates and Antis of
Both Sexes Go to War in
Woman suffragists and anti-suffragists
of the male and female species went to
war over the French constitutional
amendment gilng the Federal fran
chise to women at the hearing before
the House Committee on Elections last
night. Congressmen Rucker of Colorado
and Hobson of Alabama upheld the suf
fragists, aided by tho Rev. Olympla
Brown,, of, Racine. Wis., and Mrs. Clara
M. Colby, secretary of the Federated
Women's Equality League.
Congressmen Harrison of Mississippi
and Tribble of Georgia lined themselves
against the program and were aided by
Miss Minnie Bronson. of New York, sec
retary of the NaUonal League Opposed
to Woman Suffrage.
The first row of the evening came fol
lowing a demonstration of numerical
strength by the suffragists. The antis
were challenged to raise their hands.
The suffragists then showed that they
outnumbered their opponents by about
four to one. Congressman Tribble
moved that the hand-raising episode be
expunged from the record and Congress
man Hobson made a point of order
The two Congressmen were warming
up to joint debate when airs. Colby,
who had suggested the demonstration,
asked leave to withdraw ,lt from the
record. This was done and the two
Congressmen spent the' remainder of the
evening sparring with eath other.
When Congressman Rucker of Color
ado began his speech he attacked the
false pride of men, and began a philo
sophical discussion of the condition of
Adam and Eve. He had gradually
worked around to the serpent when
Congressman Harrison Interrupted.
"I'd like to ask Congressman Rucker
a question when he gets through with
that," said he.
