Here tofore moat "f the news nf the
campaign of the suffragists, now ap
proaching Its ( Umax, for the right to
vole in the "enemy's country" of New
York ban dealt SlfUOSt exclualvely with
the activltlea of the women themselves.
The'r hopes and feare and adroit meth
od! of . ampalgning havo been fully set
forth from day to day and will continue
to be.
But what about the men who will
wm up 10 me oauoi nox on govern- 1
ber 1' and decide whether the women '
hill le enfranchlaed ? What of the men I
who control the party organizations?
Wast impression has been made upon
them by all the oratory and personal
appeal with which the suffragists have
been hammering away month after
month' How will the politicians vote.
How do they think their "constituents'
will vote It seemed to The Si n that it
wis time to find out whut the men were
doing about suffrage. Hence the col
lection of opinions from district leaders
watch arc presented herewith.
Iteoord In I I mi res.
Hire Is the record in figures: Of
the I'emocratlc district leaders or their
representatives who could be reached
and who expressed an opinion (a num
lr are out of the city) . only two are for
..:..:. suffrage, and eight aie against
It Twelvu think It will be defeated,
i one thinks tin. amendment will be car
ried. The number of Republican lend
Ira for suffrage la four, the number
against is eight. The number of Repub
lican leaders who think it will win is
one: defeated, thirteen. Others who
would not be quoted are kituwn to be
k suffrage.
Every one of these men said the pro
suffragists and the anils are being
treated impartially and that none of the
regular Democratic and Republican or
tsnlsstlons has committed itself in
either direction This is true of both
Tammany Hall and of the Republican
oiuiily committee, aa well as of th
district machines.
The phrase "Woman suffrage is not a
party natter , the voters should be left
alone,' was used by many of the poli-
Uclans with whom a si n reporter
talked Some of them ws re even un
wiihng to give their personal views. A
fas -aid thai they had no opinion on
the subject and one went so far as to say
th tt he hadn't heard anything about it.

Washimiton. Aug 18. A list rlt -Hungary
and Qormany now know officially
that there Is no hope of the United
States discontinuing or even restricting
shipments of war supplies to the Allies.
This the Teutonic ilovernments have
barned from the note which the State
Department has sent to Austria and
which eras made publli bete to-day
, This communication In the form of a
r.-ply to the Vienna protest against the
business being done hy Americans In
; war munitions sets forth the attitude
of this Qovel limenl clearly and firmly.
Austria Is notified flatly that this liov-
erntnent will not even consider needing
to her reipiest.
So strong Is Ihe stand taken hy the
Washington Qovemmenl that this note
not only will probably end the diplo
matic exchanges on the suhjec'. but will
operate as ft distinct check upon the
Sentiment developing In this country In
favor of an embargo.
While President Wilson In this note,
as In all others to European 'lovern
mentS on the war Issues, takes his stand
firmly upon the principles involved and
Upetl the usage of nations, he Introduces
nnoth, r feature which hy many Is re
tarded as the most striking in the note.
The president bases his refusal to con
sider the Austrian suggestion on the
practical grounds of its effect upon the
shillty of the 1'nlted States to meet a
foe In the event of war.
This ftOVOrnmenl tel's Austria that
It has. been the policy of the I'nlted
States from the founding of the repub
i lie not to maintain In time of pen CO a
large military establishment or storee
of arms and ammunition . that the I'nlted
Slates has in fact always depended upon
the right and power to purchase arm.
and ammunition from neutral nations
in case of foreign attack.
Plan onltl I-'.... I. a rrnsa I . g,
In citing the domestic policy against
militarism the American note makes

European Powers that the 1'nlied States
might be "fatally" embarrassed at Ihe
outeet of a war caused more of a stir In
Washington I nan any other feature of
the note
The President makes It . lear to Aus
