"Question Should Be Set
tled Promptly," He Says,
'for Entire Count it."
Charles K. Hughes came out ungual!-
fltdly y-'sterday In favor of a Federal
. .. .
amendment giving votes to women, in
Ms speech of acceptance at Carnegie
HjII. Monday night, he had declared his
liellef In suffrage, but gave no Indica
tion whether he thought the franchise '
should le granted through national or ,
State action.
A nlxht telcsr.itn from Senator
Georce Sutherland nf t'tah. one of the
suffragist States, yeaterday gave the !
nominee an opportunity to make hie
position clear. Mr. Sutherland pointed
out that the Heimbllran pint form con
tained nothing which should prevent a
declaration and told of the lntrnsc In
terest taken by women voters In re-
spect to his attitude.
Mr. Hughes, In his reply to Senator
Sutherland's me.ase, said:
"My view Is that the proposed ameid
tr.fit should be submitted r.nd ratified."
The Republican nominee for the Pres
idency ued almort the same words when
he iiddrcised u company of "00 women
who atlended a reception given for him

Important Notice
Because of what amounts practically to a famine
in newsprint paper, we are compelled to make THE"
SUN, morning and Sunday, and THE EVENING SUN
strictly non-returnable from newsdealers.
That is, beginning next Monday, August 7th, we
shall not take back unsold copies from newsdealers. A
similar rule already obtains with the Times, the World,
the American and the Tribune.
We are telling you about this so that you may place
a regular standing order with your newsdealer for your
paper. By this means you will make sure of getting it
and you will thus protect your newsdealer from a pos
sible loss in having on his hands unsold copies.
