Brandegee, Smoot, Moses,
Slated for Defeat, Democrats
Women to Knife Penrose
And Wadsworth, Claim
i By Universal Service.)
The effect of suffrage ratification
on the political complexion of the
next Senate was seriously discussed
by party leaders here, following receipt
of the news of the Tennessee |
legislature's action
Democratic leaders asserted that
they will regain control of the Senate
through the defeat of three off
the most important seats now held ;
by the Republicans. They claim that
Senator Brandegee will be defeated
in Connecticut, Senator Moses In
New Hampshire and Senator Reea ;
Smoot in Utah as a result of the giving
of universal suffrage to women. \
lamming* to Ran.
It was announced at Democratic I
committee headquarters that Homer I
S. Cummings. former chairman of j
the national committee, will now be j
the Democratic nominee against j
Senator Brandegee.
The same state of affairs prevails!
In New Hampshire, whose senior
Senator. Moses. has steadfastly1
fought the amendment. He is cer-?
tain now to draw the fire of the '
women voters in his St^te.
To Fight Smoot.
In Utah the race will be between I
Smoot and J. H. Moyle, now an As- j
sistant Secretary of the Treasury, i
Smoot fought the amendment fori
many years, but voted for it when
it was finally brought before the j
Senate. Moyle was at Democratic;
headquarters today gathering data
on Smoot's record.
It is probable also that the women i
voters will cause some trouble in j
Pennsylvania for Boies Penrose, who
comes up this time for re-election. !
Penrose opposed the amendment ev- i
erv time he got a rhance.
In New York the fight will be
against Senator Wadsworth. always
an opponent of suffrage.
Democrata C onfident.
The Democrats expect to hold
their own in all the other States
where Democratic Senators are up ;
for re-election. In practically all of
these States the incumbents voted j
for suffrage
If the Democrats succeed, with i
the help of the women, in defeating
Brandagee. Mosis and Smoot, they
will have fifty members and the !
Republicans wil have forty-six. thus '
giving the Democrats a majority of 1
thing you need to do now to please j
, the suffragists, all you need to do
for us is to stay at home for two j
days.' We are confident that none '
of the men who voted for us today |]
will agree to such tactics.
"The vote in the House showed ,
we had one more vote than the nec- !.
essary majority of fifty, since the
two men who failed to vote were!,
strong suffragists. One of them
was unable to leave his home because
of his own illness, the other
was with his wife who is critically
ill. Both of those absent men w#re '
Republicans. In addition to those
two men fourteen Republican members
voted for ratification, which .
means that the Republicans have .
enlisted on the side of ratification '
more than a majority of their delegation
in the House."
Colby Ready to Aet.
Bainbridge Colby. Secretary of !
State, told suffrage leaders that he t
was prepaied to proclaim the worn- j
an s suffrage amendment ratified as |
soon as he had received official no- t
tice from that State that action had ,
been taken. He made it plain, how- j
ever, that he could take no steps j
before that time
^ The opponents of woman's sufI
fraae stated that in the event the
motion to reronsider the ratification
resolution was passed today they !
would fight a proclamation of rati- I
fication by' th?- Secretary of State ! ,
on the basis that action in Tonnes- !
see. Virginia and New Hampshire i
was unconstitutional. They ton- |
tended that the provision of the '
constitution of Tennesee requiring I 1
that the legislature voting on the
ratification of a Federal amendment '
be elected on that issue has not been |
complied with. j ,

ment is identical, except as to sub- ! ?

"With ratification of the Federal

State American women have
at last caught up with the women
of the twenty-one foreign countries

democracy. Women are happy
at their victory today, but they
are also very tired."
Anita Pollitzer, Charleston. S. C.,
Secretary of the Legislative Committee
of the National Woman's
Party: "The campaign for suffrage
ratification has meant just as strenuous
work on the part of the memI
hers and officers of the National

I that the victory which is ours today
Is a result of no mere chance, no

was more precious than ease
