West ern Union Building. Phoenix,. Ariz.. April s (Special.)- P.v a vole of twenty-one to fourteen, house this morning approved an amendment to the consti tution giving women votes, the oulv limitation on their rights political lin ing a denial to serve as members of the legislature. The bill now- goes to the senate in which a similar bill has teen under consideration since the first day of the session but no action has been taken although sev eral weeks have elapsed. Under the measure passed by the house, women are lia ble for military and police duty and may be drawn as Jurors. It is known Governor Hunt ravors the bill as passed. That Irrepressible O'Neill. While the house was voting on tha suffrage question, senate- was bearing arguments from several suffragettes of state fame. In addition to the worn en who appeared, Eugent Brady O'Neill was healtl. During the course of his remarks he took occasion to call attention to the Tact thnt the ref erendum provision had been written Into the constitution by a sovereign people for the sole purpose of the pro tection of their rights and that the legislature had no right to deny the use of tho same, as had been done by the passago of the sit mile liquor law and other measures He construed the constitution to mean that the peo ple should have a right to express their opinion on all measures and Im portant beyond all description was the question of granting equal suffrage to women, which, he urged should be ai proved and submitted. He did not be "ileTS"lhat approval by the legislature meant approval of tho question of equal suffrage, Lut approval of tho right of the people to exercise their rights under the referendum clause of the constitution. Graham Leads Opposition. In the house, Graham, of Cochise led the opposition forces, taking the stand that the reliel demanded could be secured through the initiative feat ure of constitution better than by leg islative enactment, for when a law was initiated just exactly what women suf frage advocates desired would be known. Barker of Pinal, Saxon of Santa Cruz and Kelton of Cochise also spoke against the bill, but Graham on several occasions made strong points for the opposition. He especially op posed that feature which denied to a woman the right to sit as legislators, declaring that if tho ballot were to be given them, they elionlu have the rig'u to make the laws, as well as to vote. Lynch made an effective speech fav oring the LIU. In part he said: "There are those who have vocifer ously heralded abroad throughout the ctato that they are the original simon pure progressives of Arizona and that all others are poor and weak imita tions; that they are the official and duly constituted defenders of our con stitutional faith, and that all others are its traducers and defamers; that they alone, of all citizens of this com monwealth are competent to inter pret the provisions of the constitution. In that they are tho originators and Inventors of every tenet and doctrine In It contained, and that all others are weak and lowly followers. Yet, I find that these self-constituted arbiters and masters of our civil destiny, when face LEPROSY INCREASES IN HAH ISLES Canadian Issues Warning to Officials of Ports on the Pacific VANCOUVER. B.

See Concealed Meaning. While Mr. Lynch denied In the pref- ace of his remarks that ho hn.i in mind any member of the house. hU j auditors could not lose sight of the met tnat Bredner opiosed the bill and to remember the M'eakersblp contest in which Governor Hunt made effort to prove that Lynch lacked progress ive Ideas and the spirit of the consti tution and urged the election of Brad ner as speaker. Lynch's remarks fob j lowed a speech by Babbitt, who held i.i 411 iuwit ior urn submission 01 the suffrage measure, the spirit of the constitution was being carried out. But the suffragettes did not hold the limelight all day.

Anril S. In an open letter to President Taft, ,glven out from Roosevelt headquarters"here today. Senator Dixon, campaign manager of Roosevelt, declared "tho ' president had become the deliberate ' receiver of stolen goods, if he does not repudiate the acts of certain fed eral office holders in the Kentucky elections, and institute proceedings . against them." ' Dixon rlaiimt) tho first Kontuckj j dlstriict was carried by Roosevelt, I but Chairman McCracken, postmaster i at I'aJucah, signed a Taft ccrtI3cate. The same thing was duplicated in Carlisle county, where tho postmas ter of Mayfleld signed a Taft certltl cateV as county cahlrman. Dixon definitely accuses these officials of violation of the law, the civil service rules, and executive orders. 'in plain language," said Dixon, "these acts constitute a simple theft Unless they are promptly repudiated by you, and those (mediately guilty brought to trial, you cannot escape the chargo of being willing to profit by a theft. In other words, you be come a deliberate receiver of stolen goods." ROOSEVELT ON RECIPROCITY Canadian Pact that Failed is Made Subject for Assault by Colonel MATTOON, 111.. April S. Roose velt, on his tour of central Illinois today, took direct issue with Taft on the reciprocity question. "My desire was to support tho ad ministration on every jKilnt I possi bly could." said he, "and at first 1 supposed the Canadian reciprocity nsreement was one which I could sup port and be glad to do so. I have looked Into it carefully, however, and will never sanction a re-Introduction of such an agreement as that reci procity agreement. I am perfectly willing that the farmers should pay their fair share, but they should not be required to pay everything for n agreement like that." I While speaking of Panama, he said- "Somebody asked me why I did not get an agreement with Colombia. I Tbey might Just as well ask me why I did not try to nail a bowl of cran-l ,,-,-., aiu. tho n-oii it -..ih tint , be my fault, nor the fault or the nail, it would be the fault of the Jelly." !

The question Is believed to hinge on the result In Illinois to morrow. Friends of Taft, is is be lieved, if Illinois goes against him, may instruct the delegates to coun teract the effect. began to tell on both, but Langford was In better condition at the end, although not good enough to land a knockout.
