' Flags of 22 nations waved before
'the Senate of the United States on
April 20th, as a visible reminder that
4ll these nations have given full or
'partial suffrago to the women of their
countries by parliamentary procedure.

cluding England, Ireland Scotland,
Wales, Canada, Australia, New Zeal
and, India, Honduras, South Africa;
Scandinavia, including Norway, Swe
den, Denmark, Finland, Iceland;
France; Russia; Netherlands, Mexico;
Porto Rico; Hawaii; Burmah.
Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt appeared
at the Senate Rearing, In behalf of
the Fodoral Suffrage Amendment,
flanked by theje 22 flags, as a con

Municipal Suffrage for French and
Italian Women.
After eleven years of waiting
French women have this year seen
their municipal suffrage bill favorably
voted on by, the Universal Suffrage
Committee of the Chamber of Depu
ties. This bill when passed, will give
French women municipal franchise
and municipal eligibility. Its reporter,
Pierre Etlenne Flandln, deputy from
the Yonne, believes that its chances
of passage are good and that, once
passed, the voto for national repre
sentatives will soon be added.
On May Eth, Premier Boselll of
Italy had this to say about "tho bill
for woman suffrage presented by
Deputy Muratelll to the Italian Parlia
ment: "As far as the vote for mu
nicipal elections Is concerned I do
not think there can be either doubt
or delay In giving It on the same
conditions as It Is given to men."
A fnttr n.nnl0 npn tho nrAclHont
;of the Committee of Civil Assis
tance, Slgnor Adolfo AppollonI, ;
; made this appeal to the Italian;;
'Minister. Slcnnr Roselll:

: all Italy. Let us pay to women !;;
i! tho same honors paid to men who ,;

ancestors placed women In the !;

Russian Women's Enfranchisement
Will Be Demanded by the People.
In Russia, women will bo Included
In the revolutionary turnover. Assur
ance has come from Prince Lvoff,

says one dispatch, "full extension of j

soon." In the meanwhile at tho Con
gress of Workers, Soldiers and Dele
gates held In Petrograd on April 17,
a report was adopted containing the
recommendation that "women shall
have tho same voting right as men."
Minister Kerensky Is ,a suffragist
and It is tho opinion of Mr. J. G
Ohsol, a member of tho second Duma,
now In this country, that the work
Ingmen's councils .will Insist that,
since women have borne a leading
part In every revolutionary and edu
cational movement In modern Russia,
they shall be enfranchised at onco
"To deny theao women even ten.-'
porarlly the right to vote on tho future
of Russia," says Mr. Ohsol, "will not
be tolerated by the masses." It is
tho opinion of Russian women of
promlnenco In this country that bo
hind the Russian revolution Is the
shining promise of woman's freedom.

member of 'the German Reichstag
openly advocated full woman suffrage

of German women that the existence
-f the nation had been preserved."
