Democrats Make Suffrage
San Francisco, June 25.-The
Democratic: national committee today
unanimously agreed to send a tele
gram to the governor of Tennessee
urging a special session of the legis
lature to ratify the federal suffrage
The committee met late today to
make up the temporary roll of dele
gates, to consider contests and to dis
pose of other business preliminary to
the opening of the convention next
Monday. H. S. Cummings, chairman.
Probably the largest number of wo
men that ever attended a meeting of
the committee was present. Ar^ong
the arrivals was Senator James S.
Reed, who claimed a seat in the con
vention as a delegate for the Fifth
Missouri district. Representatives of
the two large groups of delegates con
testing for Georgia's 28 seats were
also on hand.
There was vigorous applause when
Chairman Cummings suggested the
sending of a telegram to Governor
Roberts of Tennessee, urging him to
call a special session of the legisla
ture to ratify the federal suffrage
Without Opposing Vote.
The suggestion was unanimous
Following is the telegram sent to
the governor of Tennessee:
"The Democratic national com
mittee at its meeting held today by
unanimous vote directed me, as chair
man of the committee to send you
the following message:
1 "We most earnestly emphasize the
extreme importance and urgency of
an immediate meeting1 of your state
legislature for the purpose of ratify
ing the proposed 19th amendment
to the federal constitution. The eyes
of the millions of women throughout
the country are turned toward Ten
nessee as the one state that can and
will enfranchise them- prior to the
November election by becoming the
36th state to ratify the suffrage
" 'We ?rust that for the present all
other legislative matters may, if nec
essary, be held in abeyance and that
you will call an extra session of the
legislature of your state for such
brief duration as may be required to'
act favorably on the amendment'.
Tennessee occupies a position of pe
culiar and pivotal importance and
one that enables her to render a ser
vice, of incalcuiabla value to the wo
men of America. We confidently ex
pect, therefore under your leadership
and through your action of the leg
islature of your state the women of
the nation may be given the privilege
of voting in the coming presidential

Nashville, Tenn., June 25.-Gov.
A. H. Roberts, on reaching Jackson,
Tenn., where he speaks this after
noon, sent a telegram to President
Wilson, stating that he intended to
include ratification of the 19th
amendment inhis call for an extra
session of the legislature, provided
the state of legal department advised
him that ratification could now be

sent he had not heard that Attorney

ing that President Wilson's telegram
calling attention to the importance
of the North Carolina action en the
federal suffrage amendment requir
ed no answer, Governor Bickett to
day stated that he had nothing to add
to the statement he has already made
relative to his views toward suffrage.
Those views were expressed in a
letter to W. N. Everett of Rocking
ham, N. C., suffrage leader in the
1919 legislature, who asked the gov
ernor to champion the cause of wo
men in the state convention. The
governor in this letter, made public
March 15, declined to do this, but he
"Some time ago I decided to ad
vise the general assembly at the spe
cial session in July to ratify the fed
eral amendment. It is the sensible
and the graceful thing to do. It fol
lows that I am in favor of the Demo
cratic convention indorsing the
amendment when it meets in April.*
Voicing his own personal fears in
regard to suffrage, Governor Bickett
added in that letter:
"But my dear Mr. Everett my
fears do not blind my eyes and I
clearly see that today a condition
and not a theory confronts the Demo
cratic party in North Carolina. Wo
man suffrage is coming. It is as ir
resistible as the tides, and I am con
vinced it is the part of wisdom for
the Democratic party in North Caro
lina to accept it gracefully."
