Suddenly he thought of the Innovation of an Ice course for a ma chine.

Dr. Avery put on speed and the auto shot out on the ice, though the wheels nearly ank through the half frozen slush between the land and thick Ice. Hay entered the car and the men drove down the mid dle of Little River out on the broad sur face of the Potomac Cheers went up from a crowd of men and boys as tho machine appeared.

He attained forty miles in spurts, but even when going at low speed skidded for long dis tances in trying to turn Crowded with Spectators. The machine was stopped before the Washington Canoe Club and photo graphed with the float In the background crowded with spectators.

Senator Overman, of North Carolina, chairman of the committee, has prom ised Mrs Bennett a hearing, probably on Wednesdaj The clause which she wants changed at present reads Electors of United States Senators shall have the qualifications required for the most numerous branch of the State legislature " Mrs Bennett would have the following substituted: Senators shall be elected by the peo ple of each State, twenty-one )ears of age, of sound mind and unconvicted by law of any crime. This would allow women to vote for Senators n every State Instead of only In the States where equal suffrage reg ulations exist. Mrs. Bennett would not have the regu lation regarding equal suffrage extend further than Senatorial elections &ne does not advocate equal suffrage for Con gressional, State, or municipal elections.
