ing to Mrs. A. J. George, of Boston.
Mrs. George, who is here to speak at
the big anti-suffrage meeting at the

tion to the fact that "it was only on
the "30th of last June that the New
Hampshire Legislature turned down the
proposed -woman suffrage amendment
for the State by" a vote of 208 to 119.
and ten years, ago. when such an
amendment was submitted to the
voters. It was beaten by an immense
majority. ,
"In every New- England State," says
' Mrs. George, '-woman suffrage haa been
r defeated. In every one of those six
States the suffragist's have made their
i fights and every time they have lost."

them and with the White House silent
on the subject, despite the strenuous ef

varily sunny In disposition to see any
" hope In Washington for the suffragists."
