when Rear Admiral vRobert E. Peary will preside and will-give a short address upon "Preparedness." He" will .de
clare that there are two practical constructive and. economical national defense propositions, which can be taken up
at once by the .people of the country without waiting for government action. These 'are the. aerial coast patrol sys
tem for the protection of our coasts and the adoption of the Swiss military system by the individual states. Both
are .vital to' our national defense ; one Is" part' of our first or sea line-..of defense, the other of our second -or land line
of .defense,, the admiral believes. 'Both are valuablas a peace, asset should we have occasion to use either as a mili
tary asset. ; -The" coast patrol would be valuable as! an adjunct of the life saving -service, while, the Swiss system in
its training and disciplining of our boys and young men will add materially and permanently - to oyr national efficiency-.
' Following- -Admiral Peary. Mr.. Hertoer t R. Lang, iut back from an exploration trip covering six years in the
heart of - the Kongo, will tell of valuable
York.- His talk will be profusely -illustrates with lantern, slides showing big game and little Known regions or tne

and tell of his -more recent -experiences in the Amazonian Jungle. Mr: Frederick K. Vreelarid will give an accqunt of

1 IN DEATH BATTLE
; (Continued from Page One.) ; '
ene'e ' and finally openly . accused - the
suffrage leaders of the." utmost un
fairness throughout .their entire cam
paign, -i. ::- i Xy ..;.;.
' Indirect accusations by "inference
rather ' than statement, made by Mrs.
Hepburn in the course of her opening
address, hegan one of the most. tren
chant and sarcastic battles of verbiage
and wit that has been recorded , in"
this 'city between , women in many
years. It was- so keenthat whereas
the two opposing speakers were .'sit
ting -together and chatting, before ; the
onslaught, they were -noticeably apart
and cool at the close." .?;,
During the Course of the argument,
Representative William R. Palmer; of
Oxford, . Democraflc state commjttee
' man j who was in the, audience came
in for a share -of the suffragist lead
ers', ire when he1 was' accused of ask
ing questions that Wore a . direct-: aid
to the anti-suffragist speaker. It was
denied that he was nore than a friend
of some of the anti-suffrage delega
tion, .which had come to Bridgeport
frbna Litchfield and elsewhere.
i Open .accusations that the anti-suffrage
cause had received - substantial
support from liquor interests through
out the' country was .denied by Mrs.
Goodwin, -but it was said : that 'one,
check - received from Mr. Baliehtyhe,
the'brewer of Newark, N. J., had been
re.turne4 uncashed That the recent
campaign in New Jersey was financed
from the pockets of the anti's and
that only $3 was left at the close was
asserted.. .'' " - ' ' : ;- . " ' -!
A- statement by ; Mrs.- Hepburn that
writings ' of . her .opponent had been
found recently in saloon windows in
Ohio, ' brought forth argument', which
disclosed that the state of California
which long has had suffrage and also
Colorado, had : no -fear of women's
domination ' at the polls as far as li
quor ;interests were concerned.' Upon
the subject of morals and divorce sta
tistics innumerable were quoted
by Mrs. Goodwin . in the attempt to
show that wherever women's .veto is
cast there'immorality and divorce in
creases. ' On -the divorce question it
was sbown that in Colorado there are
40 divorces to every marriage" while
in Connecticut, a- manruled state, there
are only seven to every 100 marriages.
The opening address made-by Mrs.
Hepburn, ..was a beautiful appeal for
suffrage. It was begun by the state
ment that all western states have suf
frage and it was noticeable that they
are contiguos on ,each other, in the
Inference being that if suffrage in one
state was found wanting others near
by would not have accepted it.x It was
shqwn.that women shpuld have gov
ernment, because .it' touches closely
upon their home interests of man to
day. ; Tradition and habit were, ac
cused of keeping suffrage back in the
east.
In her opening address Mrs. -Goodwin
disclosed the fact that she was
going to put a crimp in the local suf
frage belief. She began by giving
six concrete reasons why it was not
wanted. She said that this is no time
for Suffrage when the administration
ig burdened with .other matters ' of
grestt import and now has any quanti
ty of inexperienced electors. Suffrage
had been turned down by the thought
ful men and women of many starea
and had been gained in a small min
ority only after long battles and re
peated vote.
. There are too many unwelded 'na
tionalities whose voters are now a
problem ft6" the government, she'-said,
to rrfak it advisable' to- Introduce an
equal nuiniber of unintelligent ,women
to add to the tribulations, and expense
of the country. . This would be ex
ceptionally notable ;, in the crpwded
eastern states. A It would let into vote
many , ignorant negro women of the
south ; whose, husbands , and fathers
now have' no vote. , ; ., ..
'-Women are ' not considered despots
and a class apart from men,,but one
class of women have interests in com
mon with that class of men and there
fore-their-views axe reflecetd ' at the;
polls thr6ugh the menf olkai even now, ;
she said. ' ; :.',' ''"i ',.";. j
. After 45 years of. vote in some;
western states Mrs Goodwinf alleged,
anti-suffragists cannot see . iany mar
terial improvement from the experi
ment. '"They do not have a single
iaw,". v said Mrs. Goodwin;, "looking
towards 'the benefit of womanhood or
childhood that was not also -first on
the statute -books of the male suffrage
states. There were ' many such as the
maternity laws -on eastern- statutes
that' the west 'did not have.?!.'
V i "Women . suffragists- have uncertain
political , and somewhat i -unethical
ideas," said ; the -"Anti," and she
quoted directly from speeches f Anna
Shaw and other suffrage leaders de
manding that if 'these, statements are
believed by . the suffragist, the : con
servative and the feminist,, they are
uncertain and unethical and - if not
believed their leaders should toe de
posed. , -. .. 1 - ;'"..".'-'' .
- Probably the hardest blow that was
delivered to suffrage last' night was
in the- rebuttal, --.when ; Mrs. Goodwin
declared that women who want - to
vote oft- political questi6ns -should first
remember that their traditional pre
rogative of handling servants, which ,
had descended unhampered by man
for generations, is still the most per
plexing question and one of the most
inefficiently 1 governed, 'known to man.
. Mr. 'Hepburn, whose ready Wit was
equal to all occasions last night,, had
facts and figures presented that called
for equal display. Whether or not this
was forthcoming, will probaibly never
be known, .as ' the -majority of those
present, including ' 'many male and
women Socialists of note, were In fa
vor of - suffrage from the taking ofj
the' initial secret ballot. ,,' ' i-
