WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER, WEDNESDAY MORNING, APRIL 26, 1916.
METHODS IN REFUSING
VOTES FOR WOMEN.
(From Thursday's Daily.)
The envoys special of the Congres
sional Union for Woman Suffrage ar
rived in Prescott at 4:10 o'clock yes
terday afternoon and during the 15
minutes following several hundred
persons who had gathered at the sta
tion listened to two clever speakers
plead for the national enfranchise
ment of women and ask support for
the Susan B. Anthony Federal suff
rage amendment which, if passed, will
bring this result.
The special car carrying the 23 en
voys, who arc touring the country,
was decorated with purple, gold and
white banners and signs, and each
member of the party carried a flag
of similar colors.
Hardly had the train been brought
to a stop before Mrs. Florence Bay
ard Hiles, chairman of the Delaware
branch of the suffrage union, launched
forth into a forceful plea for "votes
for women," addressing her audience
from the steps of the coach.
While she was speaking a dozen
other envoys mingled with the audi
ence, distributing literature and ex
plaining the purposes of the trip.
Mrs. Hiles was followed by Miss
Julia Hurlburt, of Xcw Jersey. Miss
Hurlburt's appearance and personality
both were far from being similar to
the general mental picture of a suff
ragist and she proved to be even
more attractive as a speaker.
A part of the literature distributed
was a pertinent article with the head
lines: "What Has the Democratic
Party Done for Woman Suffrage?"
The article follows, a clear and con
cise expose of the administration's
tactics in denying national suffrage:
"In the 63rd congress the president
refused to support the Federal suff
rage amendment and declared his per
sonal opposition to it.
"In the senate the amendment was
pushed to a premature vote, on March
19, 1914, by two Democratic senators.!
(Thomas, of Colorado, and Ashurst,
of Arizona), who had it in charge, a
year before congress closed, although
a nation-wide demonstration in sup
port of tiic measure was in prepara
tion at the time. Senators Thomas
and Ashurst publicly stated, before
the vote was taken, that the amend
ment had not enough votes for" pas
"The vote of the senate on the
amendment was 35 for and 34 against.
It failed by only 11 votes of securing
the necessary two-thirds' majority.
"Twenty-seven per cent of the
Democrats and 4. per cent of the
Republicans voted for the amend
ment. "In the house. Democrats on the
tules committee, by a party vote, de
feated (January 17 and January 24,
1915) a resolution creating a commit
tee on woman suffrage in the house
"A caucus of Democratic members
of the house refused (February 3,
1914) to rescind this action, and by a
vote of 123 to 57 passed a resolution
declaring that the question of woman
suffrage was a State and not a Fed
"The Democratic floor leader, Mr.
Underwood, of Alabama, said in the
house (February 4, 1914): The Dem
ocratic party last night took the dis
tinctive position that it was not in
favor of this legislation, (the Federal
suffrage amendment), because it was
in favor of the States controlling the
question of suffrage. I not only said
I was opposed to it, but I said the
party on this side of the chamber was
opposed to it; and the party that is in
control of the legislation in congress
certainly has the right openly and
above board to say that it will not
support a measure if it is not in ac
cordance with its principles.'
"The Democratic members of the
rules committee blocked the suffrage
amendment in committee until after
the congressional elections in Novem
"The vote in the house on suffrage
was 174 for, and 204 against. If as
great a portion of the Democrats as
of the Republicans had voted for suff
rage a two-thirds' majority in the
house would have been secured. But
more than two-thirds of the Demo
crats voted against suffrage, reducing
the vote to such a point that the
amendment could not have secured
two-thirds' majority if every member
of every other party had been present
and voted 'yes.'
"In the Sixty-fourth congress the
president has given no support to the
Federal suffrage amendment.
"In the senate no effort has been
made by the party in power to assist
in the passage of the suffrage resolu
tion. "In the house the administration
leaders on the judiciary committee
forced a single vote upon all consti
tutional amendments, including the
suffrage and prohibition amendments,
and by uniting the opposition to all
; of them secured a majority against a
i report of the Federal suffrage amend-
! incut, although a majority of the in -
dividual members ot tnc committee
, favored such a report ami had openly
pone on record as doing so.
'There is no case before the coun
try at the present time more just, and
more necessary to the maintenance
of the rights of the people, than na
tional woman suffrage. The enfran
chisement of women is as great' an
issue in 1916 as was the adoption of
our Federal constitution in 17S9."

PHOEX1X. April 20. Boxing will

'GALAHAD" HUNT SHOULD
WEAR A NICE HALO
(From Friday's Daily)
PHOF.XIX, riz.. April 20. Ari
zona editors are waxing bitterly sar
castic over the publication in a recent
issue of Collier's Weekly of an article
by Peter Clark MacFarlane on Gov
ernor Hunt, thc "Galahad of Ari
zona." Thc Phoenix Republican
(progressive) in a leading editorial
says that It has "been shamed aim
humilated by thc writer, who in a
brief trip through the State has learn
ed more of our foremost citizen than
wc had suspected, notwithstanding wc
have kept an almost unblinking gaze
upon him for thc last score of years.
Thc picture of Governor Hunt as
painted by MacFarlane, says the Re
publican, is an unreal one. "It pre
sents thc governor as no on" in Ari
zona knows him. It is a Distorted
picture, the listortion being in thc
comments and conclusions with whicli
the interstices among thc stated facts
arc filled. The story is a work of
