RIGHT TO VOTE
Nation-wide woman suffrage,
granting the right to vote to every
competent American woman 'in the
United States over the age of 21
years, became part of the bisic law
of the United States when the house
of representatives of the Tennessee
legislature, by a vote of 49 to 47,
ratified the Susan B. Anthony consti
The measure had already been rat
ified by the Tennessee senate so that
"Tennessee became the thirty-sixth
.state to ratify, thus completing the
ratification by two-thirds of the stat
es and putting the amendment into
the national constitution, bringing to
a victorious conclusion the long fight
lor equal suffrage in the United
There are 26,883,566 women in the
United States eligible to vote. Of
this number more than half already
had been given the right to vote
-through amendments to their state
constitutions, as in California, Illi
nois, New York, Arizona and other
But.' in the southern states, part of
the New England states and certain
of the other states women had bee'n
unable to gain the right to vote un
til today when national equal suffrage
became an accomplished fact.
More than eleven million women
were added to the voting strength of
the United States by today's action.
Both political parties recognize that
these women, combined with the
women of the states like Illinois and
New York who have only recently
been granted suffrage, are sufficient
to turn the tide of the national elec
tion in November.
Both the Democrats and Republi
cans are claiming a majority of the
newly fledged voters, but they ad
mittedly constitute one of the great
problems of the present campaign for
Millions to Vote.
There are 11,652,780 women in the
United States who were granted suf
frage by today's action of the Ten
nessee legislature in ratifying the
national suffrage amendment. Ac
, tion by individual states had already
granted suffrage to 15,230,786 women.
Among the states where women
had not granted equal suffrage until

When the big Rodeo comes off, the

left out entirely. The Central Com
mercial Company has been sent ten
prizes, by the different bicycle com
panies, to be offered to the winners
of bicycle races.

yet. They may be held on one day,

BIG SANDY SECTION SOON TO BID FOR

Several farmers of the Big Sandy
section have this year planted in the
neighborhood of 100 acres to long and
short staple cotton to demonstrate the
feasibility of growing this crop here
and from the indications seen bya
representative of the Miner one day
this past week, it is very probable
that it will prove a yield that will sur

A number of cotton growers from

TION FOR SOLDIERS
V. P. Lucas, who attended the state
convention of the American Legion at
Douglas, win report back to the Ellis
Harbach Post of Oatman next Friday
night.- He- willf also give the Swas
kegame Post a copy of his report, in
asmuch as, they could not send a dele
gate. Speaking of the work at the
convention, Mr. Lucas said:
"It was a pleasure to be at this
Convention and to meet the kind of
men whom the various Posts had sent
to represent them, one couldn't help
but be impressed with their honest
of intention and sincerity of purpose.
The Convention endorsed the four
fold plan of beneficial legislation
which was presented to Congress by
National Headquarters but spent most
of its time in considering beneficial
land legislation both State and Na
tional. In this connection we endor
sed the San Carlos Dam project and
a proposition presented by the Frank
Luke Post No. 1 of Phoenix, whereby
State land now idle and unuhed might
be thrown open to ex-service men for
In order to more fully aid Public
officials in determining wha the ex
service men feel would be of help to

so as to provide a permanent "Bene
ficial Legislative Committee", whose
duty it would be to bring before the
law-making bodies measures which
were designed (to conserve and devel
op the natural resources of ourState
and Nation and nt the same time be
of assistance to ex-service men, to
the end that we might help our Na
tion be great in peace as well as war.
The U. S. Public Health Service
Hospitals were commended for the
wonderful work they are doing among
the disabled men and the cooperation
of the Legion was pledged to seeing
that this great work was brought
within the knowledge and reach of
every disabled service man without
unnecessary "red tape".
The Bureau of War Risk insurance
had a representative present and
plans vere devised whereby the man
who desired readjustment of compen
sation, reinstatement of insurance, de
layed allotments fixed up and such
matters, could take these questions
up with the Legion's War Risk Offi
cer and-in this wav facilitate the work
-for both the man and the department.
Ail the perplexing problems of re
construction were taken up, discussod'
and suitable action taken.
One matter which will come before
the people of the State to be voted
upon this fall was the creation of a
"Soldiers and Sailors Civil Service
Commission". This matter was dis
cussed with much vigor by both its
proponents'and opponents and was
finally endorsed by a small majority.

The widespread interests in the
building of the Boulder Canyon dam is
evidenced in the dispatching of a sur
vey party from the reclamation ser
vice to the site, under the direction of
George A. Hammond. This coips is

work lined up for the taking of sound
ings across the river at the site of the
proposed dam. Some soundings have
already been taken with the gratify
Tuesday last Anson H. Smith, ac
companied by F. H. McClure, Al. Jor
genson and W. J. Cook departed to
the canyon in two cars, reaching the
river at old Stone's ferry in the even
ing. The following morning a raft
was constructed and the three last
named gentlemen set sail for the head
of Boulder Canyon to make photo
graphs and to picturize the whole pro
ject, taking in the site and the big
country that will be put under water
when the dam is a reality. Theyi
made the trip in safety to the camp
of the reclamation service, twelve
miles from the old ferry, and were
hospitably entertained by the engi
neers. These gentlemen also' took the
explorers to the proposed damsite and
alsd indicated where good pictures
could be taken. These pictures were
secured, as well as those of the Virgin
Valley and other interesting country
in the immediate vicinity. Just after
securing the picture of the mouth of
the Virgin a great flood came down
that stream and mingled its muddy
wateis and all kinds of driftwood with
the waters of the " Colorado river,
raising the height of that stream
more than a foot in an hour.
The return trip was made last
night, Messrs. Smith and McClure
getting to Kingman at one o'clock,
the other gentlemen being left at their
homes in Chloride. The trip was one
of the most profitable ever taken by
any persons into that territory and
impressed the party with the wonder
ful possibilities of the project. Thac
it is great one has but to gaze upon)
the pictures that were brought back,
with the knowledge of the needs for
the husbanding of the water of the
Colorado river for the benefit and
protection of the farming community
for several hundred miles south of
the dam. The engineers in charge of
the work are just as enthusiastic over
the project as were the visitors, be
lieving that it will be one of the larg
est and most prolific of good of any
reclamation project in the world.
The pictures that were taken will
be used for magazine articles and
newspaper publicity, as well as before
congress when 'the big project comes
