Rep. Cantrill Says South erners May Lose Posts by Adverse Vote. Southern Dem?crata stand to loa? their control of coi?mitt?? chair manships in Congress by any sus tained opposition to th? Federal woman suffrage amendment, ac cording to James C. CantrlU, of Kentucky. Representative Cantrill. la a statement given out yesterday, points out that ten Southern States are now In control of 81 of the 60 committee chairmanships In th? House. Four of these ten State? control 18 of th? 81 chairmanship?. That th? South would like to keep thi? control goes without saying-. "But it won't be able to do so in face of the opposition it will en counter If the?? ten Southern etite? ?rot? almost solidly against th? Fed eral suffrage amendment," aaya Representative Cantrill. "The?? ten Southern States have but 110 elec toral votes, aa against 188 electoral vote? possessed by th? 18 States that have given women th? suffrage for presidential electors. Sonth Weald Lo.?. "Now for the?? ten Southern States to vote almost solidly against the auf trage amendment, aa It la reported that they Intend doing, would, in my opinion, be a very grave political mla take. The South ha? everything to lose by such a short-sighted policy. The eighteen suffrage States have thirty-six Senators, while tha ten Southern States, which are reported aa being against tha auftrage amend ment, have but twenty Senators. The fact that the Congress 1? now almost evenly divided between the Democra tic and Republican parties it seems to me should force Democratic mem bers from the 'South to give heed to the situation. "This statement is based on th? sup position that each Democrat In Con gress is looking to the welfare of his party in the nation, and that he will not be governed by local conditions In his own district Conditions often arise where the member of Congress must'look beyond the cornine? ot his own district and t-cle a stand for those things wMch are for th? good of the Democratic p?rty In the na tion, and for the good of the nation itself. 'The public discussion recently of the national woman suffrage amend ment has brought to the surface the fact that the Republican leader? tn ?Congress are doing e?-erythlng in their power to line up the full Republican vote In Congress for this amendment. I sincerely hope that the Democrats In Congress are alive to tbe situation and that they will not permit the Re publican party to get any political ad vantage from the passage of this amendment. "I speak as a Southern Democrat, who expects to vote for the suffrage amendment. The Democratic party ia now In control of all branches of the Federal government. Almost every committee assignment so far as the chairmanships are concerned Is held by Southern Democrats, who thus practically dictate the legisla tion of the nation. We have this control, as everyone knows, because the woman suffrage States In the ?at Presidential election voted almost solidly for Democratic electora and candidates. "For the Democratic party In Con gress to vote against the States that gave them this power would in my humble opinion be political suelde. For tbe Southern Dem?crata In Con gress to say to the millions of pa triotic women of the nation that suf frage shall not be given them would bring ?lown upon our heads such con demnation from the suffrage States that we would be driven from power. "Why should we not view the situa tion as our Republican friends are doing and line up for the passage of the amendment? If this plan is pur sued then the suffrage question can not be made a political and partisan issue. On the other hand, the Dem ocratic party can not go into the cam paign next year with any hope of suc cess with a large Republican vote in Congress In favor of the suffrage amendment, and a large Democratic vote tn Congress against the amend ment. How can we of the South expect the confidence of the nation in con trolling the great committee? of Congre?? unless we are willing to trust millions of citizen? in suf frage and non-suffrage States who are asking us at this time to show our confidence In them by granting the right of suffrage to millions of sincere, intelligent and patriotic women? The men who ar? in the trenches carrying the burden of this war, when they were given the chance to vote on the question of woman suffrage, voted two to one In favor of It. It the boys in the trenches who every day risk their lives for the national defense, are, willing to trust the women to vote as to their welfare, certainly the men who are fighting the war be hind mahogany desks can. trust the American women with the ballot" Ruc?is to Pay U.

Stewart Tells of "Wedge of Gold" and Joshua's Defeat ? sermon On "Tbe Biggest Battle of the War" was preached last night by Rev. Howard I. Stewart, pastor of tbe Second Baptist Church. Fourth street and Virginia avenue soutne?st.

The pastor likened this episode to some of the recent transaction? In Riusi?, where the present leaders have been taking all kinds of golden wedges from the German?. The dedication of the church's serv ice flag, containing thirty stars, waa a feature of the patriotic proceedings. CONGRESS TO BEAR WOMAN SINN FEINER _ ??.
