By DAVID M. CMUVRCH. ImNerentIeslf News Servier. Powerful anti-suffrage Interests have comWined in a bitter fight to prevent final ratification of the suf frage amendment by the Tennessee legislature, according to reports re ceived by suffrage leaders here to day. "It is very apparent th.t som' pow erful outside interest is at work in T nnessee, fighting to prevent ratifi cation of the suffrage amendment." said Miss Jessie Haver. of the Na tional League of Women Voters. "The great opposition to suffrage in Tennessee is coming from outside of the State.". Miss Haver continueO. "I wonder if Senator Dillingham. who may have prevented ratification in Vermont; or Senator Brandegee, who may have prevented ratification tt Connecticut: or Senator Wadsworth of New York. who has afways been a bitter enemy of suffrage, have any knowledge of how this great opposi tion it being developed in Tennessee? NOT PARTY FIGHT. "It is very apparent that the hidden opposition to suffrage in Tennessee Is bigger than party. It doesn't ap pear like a patty movement, and we would like to know who is responsi ble." While extremely careful in their statements, suffrage leaders here give the impression that they believe op position to ratification in Tennessee Is being directed by leaders who have always opposed suffrage and now fear their opposition may prove a boome rang in the fall elections if the wom en secure the vote. It is pointed out that Senator Wadsworth. Senator randegee and other consistent op ponents of suffrage are facing stiff fights for re-election, and if the wom en are granted the vote re-election of suffrage opponents is decidedly ques tionable.

NEW TORK, Aug. d.--Upfore this ease is over there are going to be in teresting developments in it ad somebody is going to get into trou ble." declared Herbert R. Linburg. counsel to Herbert V. Deflower, just efter he had appeared before a $u prome Court justice to asi the dis missal of a motion of Mrs. Helen Do Dower, who divorced his elient, to set aside an alimony agreemedt made a decade ago. 'ounsellor limburg declined to elaborate on his statemept at this time. The agreement in dispute between husband wife is alleged to have been entered into between them at the trial of. her action for a divorce in- a Illinois court and to have been Incer porated in the decree awarded her. Limburg ridiculed the idea that a portion of a decree of an Illinois court could be set aside by a tribunal of an other State. If Mrs. DeBower sin cerely wishes to have the agreement set aside and ia speaking in good faith when she charges that it was ob tained from her at a time when she was in no condition to enter into such an agreement. Limburg declared she must begin an action to that end in the State of Illinois. In her compliant Mrs. DeBower charges that when tier husband rep resented at the time the agreement was made his income was $12,000 a year and that he possessed assets of $75,000. he grossly misrepresented his financial condition. She asserts he at that time had an income of $100.000 and assets of at least $500.000. The agreement gave her $25.000 in cash and securities and alimony of $1.800 a year. Alleging that her husband now has an income of more than $150.000 a year and that he allows his second wife at least $60.000 a year. Mrs. De ower No. I is asking that her allow ance be now increased to $2,500 a month, or 1.600 per cent. Daniel W. Blumenthal. who ap peared for Mrs. DeBower, argued that the part of the Illinois court's decree relating to alimony is subject to re view in the courts of this State. The court announced that the pa pers in the matter would be carefully perused before a decision is rendered. but intimated a belief that it lacks jurisdiction. of t hie t at.

Missouri SLEES5NHSN PARK WfM BABY Young Unwed Mother Goes in Rap to Drew Child in Comfortable Clothes. WU* TORY, Aug. 4.-Nellie Kelly. twenty-four, clad its tattered clothes and sleeping in a park to save moue7 to buy dainty garments for her AAe week-old child, was arrpated for Wa gac yesterday. Holding the well ressed infant to her breast in Wash ington Heights Court. she told Magis trate Raphael Tobias that her rela tives would not accept her, and that she "couldn't stand to see the little one wear rags." so she sacrificed her own personal appearance for the child's sake. For Ave nights the young unmar ried mother and her child slept in a small park at 136th street and Ams terdam avenue. Neighbors reported the case to William Moore of the Children's Society. Although she earned enoughas a domestic to clothe and feed herself she said: "The baby was so beautiful that I wanted it to have beautiful things. It was easy for me to go without food and a bed when I could use the money to buy clothing for the baby." During her recital of sacrifice she had undergone through her sense of mother love. Nellie Kelly would allow no odle In the court room to touch the infant. She seemed to fear it would be taken from her. Magistrate Tobias committed her to St. Mary's Home. When asked how she had protected the child from the rain in the park. the mother displayed a rubber blanket which she had bought to cover the infant at night. She also had warm comforters and a pillow, all for the child. For herself she bought little. Nellie Kelly said she had resided with a married sister and the latter's husband until a few days before the child was born. She added she had been ordered from the house when her brother-in-law learned of her ap proaching motherhood. On her discharge from the hospital where the child was born she obtained employment as a domestic. Her health was too impaired to permit full-time work, but she said she could have had many comforts that she denied her silf that the "baby could look like other children that hadl good clothes."
