TAFT MAY DIS
-Phoenix, Ariz., Nov. '14. It is be
lieved throughout Arizona that the or
ganization of women which is seeking
to secure equal suffrage is alone to
blame for the failure to secure it.
There is a story in this connection.
Last summer a band of men got to
gether in Phoenix and organized a
labor party, and it got the endorse
ment of the Western Federation of
Miners, then in session at Denver. tjlt
failed to get the approval of Samuel
Gompers, however, who told the organ
izers they were making a serious mis
take. Anything with a Western Federation
tag to it is anathema in Ari
T' T8 among business men gen
erally. Therefore the Labor party was
not at all popular within the territory.
Mrs. Francis Munds, of Prescott,
president of the Arizona Equal Suf
frage associatioc, however, when the
socalled labor party Inserted in its
platform a demand for equal suffrage,
carried her whole organization to it,
with open purse strings. Fifteen hun
dred dollars constituted her contri
bution to the warbag of the neiv po
litical organization, it is claimed.
The story got out quickly. Mrs.
Munds, In her zeal, was the first to j
announce it, and that ended the big
chance then and there. Editors and
voters alike figured 'that if the votes
of the women of Arizona were to be
given to Western Federation organiza
