the Top Line.
[United Press Leased Wire Service.]
CHICAGO, Aug. 29.—The congres
sional 'committee of the National
Americbti Woman's Suffrage associa
tion tottight issued a formal black list
or United States senators and repre
sentatives who are described as im
placablefoes of woman suffrage and
urged their defeat. Nine senators re
markeff'for defeat. They are: Bran
dege (repn.), Connecticut Dilling
ham (repn.), Vermont Root (repn.),
New York Lodge (repn.), Massa
chusetts Gore (dem.), Oklahoma
Fletcher (dem.), Florida Shively
(dem.), Indiana Clarke (dem.), Ark
ansas Smith (dem.), Maryland.
Senator Lodge and Representatives
Oscar Underwood and James R. Mann
of Illinois, are particularly singled out
for attack. Massachusetts women are
urged to organize at once to defeat
Senator Lodge whose term does not
expire until 1917. Regarding Under
wood and Mann, the black list state
in the lower house we have to con
tend not only with the power of Rep
resentative Underwood and his lieu
tenant, Fitzgerald of New York, but
•we have had to contend likewise with
the adroit opposition of Minority
Leader Representative Jas. R. Mann,
of Illinois. The latter, in his appeal
to the woman voters of the second dis
trict has made it plain that he intends
to capitalize his reputation as the
author of the "white slave act.'' We
believe that the women of his district
will be much more interested in the
support bulletin which we shall Is
sue shortly, dealing candidly with his
Defeat of the same number of rep
resentatives is urged by the suffrag
ist organization. The following house
members are charged not only with
being foes of equal suffrage but with
hostility to social legislation as well:
Underwood, Alabama, democratic
floor leader in house Mann, Illinois,
republican floor leader Fitzgerald
(dem.), New York Page (dem.),
North Carolina Galloway (dem.).
Texas Game (dem.), Texas Garrett
(dem.), Tennessee Hay (dem.). Vir

FOR HELPING CZAR
Russia Offer* Autonomy to the Pole*
if They Wilt Assist During
[By J. W. Mason, Former European
Manager of the United Press]
NESW YORK, Aug. 29.—A new au
tonomous state of Poland, somewhat
larger in area than the state of Colo
rado. with a population approximat
ing 20,000,000 will be one of the re
sults of the European war if Germany
and Austria are defeated by the allies.
This is the mean'ng of the czar's
proclamation promising autonomy to
a united Poland if the Poles should
come to Russia's assistance.
Polflncfc- was the second largest king
dom in Europe from the eleventh cen
tury to 1871 when Russia, Prussia
and Austria each seized a portton of
Polish territory. Other partisans fol
lowed until now. the ancient king
dom consists of the province of Ga
llcia in Austro-Hungary the province
of West Prussia and Posen in Prussia,
and Poland proper as well as other
districts of Russia.
Russia and Prussia have treated
the Poles like conquered people. Both
countries have attempted to force
their own languages and institutions
on their Polish subjects by military
methods. Poland has been to Russia,
and Posen. where most of the German
Poles live, has been to Prussia, what
the Irish question, before the pass
age of the home rule bill, was to Eng
Austria has treated her Polish in
habitants far more liberally than has
Russia and Prussia, and the province
of Gallcla which is Austrian Poland,
has enjoyed comparative freedom.
Many Poles hold high office In the
Austrian government. Many are trust
ed with important posts in the army.
The Galician Poles, h'therto have
been against Russia in the present
war, but the' czar's assurance that
Russia, German and Austrian Poland
will be reunited—that "torn and
bleeding Poland" will bleed no more
—undoubtedly will cause a change in
More sentimental interest Is at
tached to' in Galicia to a reunited
Poland than elsewhere oecause Cra
cow, is Galicia's chief Polish city. Gra
cow was the original caipital of Pol
and, and after the capital was re
moved to Warsaw, Polish kings con
tinued to be crowned In the Galician
city for 150 years. Gracow, with the
surrounding district, waB the last
part of Poland to resist absorption,
holding out as a republic, until 1846.
The czar's promise to the Poles to
restore their language, religion and
history and customs, and to let them
govern themselves In a united prov
ince under Russian imperial sover
eignty ought to facilitate the advance
of the Russian armies through the
eastern borders of Prussia and Aus
The Russian troops probably will be
received by all Poles as deliverers,
and the military consequances should
be considered. At the same time,
the czar's promise of liberalism will
permit England and France to an
swer Germany's claim that the al
liance against her and Austria is be
ing dominated by the Bplrlt of Russian
The czar's move in offering auton
omy to Poland is the most Important
strategic and statesmanlike move the
war 'probably will bring forth.
