Editor Keowoo Courier:
I read the liest article in Tho Cou
rier on tito duties of a voter that I
have seen in nil) paper, and I want
to add my appeal to yours, thal every
one be sure to vote -MU? women to
offset tho Repuhlh ti vote that may
be casi by the colored women who
have Hie privilege of voting now. I
mean no disrespect to. tile colored
people, for many of Hiern are good
eil i/.ens and tax-payers, bul thoy have
not yoi berni educated to the fact that,
they can ,voto for any party except
the one to whom they owe their free
dom. I hope they will gain that
knowledge in time thal a Democrat
is worth their votes.
We women in Montana have voted
for several years, and we find we can
do a great deal of good for our cho
sen party by speaking a word on
every mvasion possible. Personally,
of course, I am a true-blue Demo
