Washington, June 24. (A. P.) Militant Attorney.General Frier, en ha advised Gov. . Roberta, of TenneaMo, that the legislature of . that atate could ratify the suffrage . amendment without submitting the Issue to the people, , Mr, Frjerson'a opinion, given orally and In writing both to Gov. . Roberta and th . attorney-general ot Tennessee, was based largely on . the decision of the United States supreme court In the Ohio referen dum case. In that case the court held that: ratification of, amend., menti could be had only by state legislatures or convention, and that provisions of state constitutions that ratification be referred to a vote of the people conflicted with the federal Constitution. -' It was said today that President Wilson " asked the attorney. general for an Interpretation of the Ten. nessee 'constitution with respect to ratification. Mr. Frierson. who Is a ' native of Tennessee, ruled that the supreme court decision made In. valid that section of the Tennes.ee constitution which provides that any action on a federal amendment must be taken by. a legislature, the members of which have been elected after the amendment -wae submitted to the state. i Frierson.

June 24. The na tional woman's party has found over night new hope of national enfranchise ment of. women ih time ror mem to vow In everv state at the forthcoming presi dential election. Mrs, Abby Scott Baker; who is here to represent the party be fore the democratta national conven tion.' aald that the new hops lay with a democratic state, Tennessee, and that, unless the democrats gave the women the needed ratification by the thirty-sixth utate her party would fight the democrats Just as it already plans to fight the republican. Mrs. Baker fallowed her announce ment with the, direct throat that the national woman'a party would affiliate Its organisation with the proposed third party if neither the democrats nor the republlcana ratify the amend ment in the remaining state needed. The. sudden decision to put every pos sible pressure upon the democrats to get Gov. Roberts to call the Tennes see legislature in special session is based upon a series of legal opinions that recent ' Kunrem court decisions In the Ohio suffrage and prohibition ref erendum cases open the way ror Ten nessee to ratify at once repardless of the provision of the state law that an election must intervene between favor able action In Washington upon pro posed constitutional amendment and ratification thereof by the state of Ten nessee. The Ohio decisions were. In essence. that the Constitution has provided the method of its own amendment and thai state regulations for ratification which change, conflict with or amplify this method are in themselves unconstitu tional.

As state chairman 1 have sent a formal request to Gov Hoherls reniirstlng the special session." "Previously." said Mrs. Baker, "we have not blamed the democrats as we have the republicans because we havt tnken the nosftion of 'no arot. no can do.' Now we see that the democrats of Tennessee are Just as able to give us the thirty-sixth state 'off their shelves' as were the republicans to take down and wrap up for us either Con ncticut or Vermont. We believe- the democrats will be quick to see the run ning start toward victory they ran gain by giving women the vote snd that thev will do everything In their power o mai enn. "We shall not nlcket this convention rf they do Hot, because we feel there baa been time enoue-h to work unon Gov. Itoberts ss there had been In the ease of the ermont and Connecticut governors.

Chicago, June 14. The mystery sur rounding the telegram sent by President Wilson, to the railway labor board here asking that settlement of the wage controversy he expedited was cleared loaay srter the White House had an nounced the text of the mesage. Judge R. M. Barton, chairman of the board, said he received the telegram last Mon day marked "Personal and confidential" and had not onmmunlcated (x to other members of the board. The president, made his telegram puniio following a visit of w. I,. Mc Menlmen. denutv president of the Broth erhood of Hallway Trainmen to White House. McMenimen exnlalned to the White House that the denial of the rail road labor board that it had a communi cation from the president had comnlien ted the situation and was forcing other local unions to qcolnre outlaw strikes, RAIL BOARD DIVIDED ON WAGE QUESTION Chicago, June 24. A well confirmed report in circulation in labor circles to day said the railway labor board was divided three ways on the wage con troversy, the labor group holding out for an award, which both the company and public representatives thought ex orbitant, and the company group refus ing to concede an award that the pub lic group held reasonable. No message from President Wilson asking for an immediate decision on the wage ques tion had been received when the board resumed deliberations today. : While conceding that each grop holds Its own Ideas and thnt there is naturally a wide devergence of opinion, George W. Han ger of the board, declared today that there was nothing In the present situa tion to warrant the assumption that the board faced a deadlock. There was every Indication, he said, that a satis factory agreement would be reached within a reasonable length of time. . Union le iders here, however were not ao optimistic. They declared they, be lieved the board would be wrecked on the same deadlock that ended President Wilson's attempt to settle the railroad problem last winter through another tripartite organisation. Judge Barton, chairman of the board, declined to comipent on this report. "It takes time for nine men, representing three different viewpoints, to agree on anything'! 4i -old,- - .MMtscuM-., ..
