TENNESSEE TO FACE SUFFRAGE VOTE TOMORROW State’s Greatest Orators Pre pare for'Spectacular Battle. SIDES PICK SPEAKERS NASHVILLE, Term., Aug. 12.—A second attempt to prevent action on the ratification of the federal wom an’s suffrage amendment in the leg islature was defeated today when a resolution which would have de ferred action on the amendment un til the. regular session of the legisla ture in January, 1921, was tabled without a record vote. NASHVILLE, Aug. 12.—The suffrage amendment to the federal constitution is scheduled to be voted on by both houses of the Tennessee general assembly to morrow, according to plans of leaders in the fight for ratification. Tonight will be featured by a grim battle between eminent constitutional au thorities on both sides before a hearing of the joint committees on constitutional amendments of the legislature. One result of the hearing is to postpone until some undetermined date the huge mass meeting suffrage opponents had ar ranged for at the Ryman auditorium. A display of legal acumen and forensic brilliance unequaled in the history of the statehouse is expected when the legal luminaries of the suffragists and anti suffraglsts uulimber their heavy artillery. It will hark back to the days of Henry Clay and Daniel Webster In the United States senate when constitutional probr leius occupied the minds of congress. The limitation of the matter subject to debate to the constitutionality of ratifica tion by an extra session of the Tennessee legislature has prevented the argument of many other subjects which antl-ratl fleationists had expected to use with tell ing effect, and is considered a suffrage victory. Both sides already have made tenta tive slates of their speakers. The suffrage cause will be presented by Frank M. Thompson, attorney gen eral of the state, upon whose official ruling Gov. Roberts decided to call the extra session: United States Senator McKeller, William Guilford Dudley, Hon. James B. Fowler of Knoxville, who was assistant attorney general of the United States under the Taft adminls tratioli, and Charles T. Cales, former attorney general of Tennessee. Arguments that the state constitution inhibits ratification, despite the supreme court decision in the Ohio referendum case, will be made by Miss Charlotte Rowe of Washington. D. C., field secre tary of the National American Associa tion Opposed to Woman Suffrage; Judge Joseph Higgins, Nashville, presi dent of the newly organized Tennessee constitutional league; Judge G. M. Till man. Nashville. One other speaker represent the cause of the suffrage opponents; whether it will be Hon. Foster V. Brown of Chattanooga or Congressman Finis D. Garrett of Memphis has not been de cided. CLINTON MAN IS HELD FOR MURDER Charged With Killing George Chappelle of Indianapolis. Special to The Times.

DEFINITE BREAK INDICATED IN PARIS PARIS, Aug. 12. —France definitely has broken with Great Britain on the Rus sian policy, acrording to all Indications today.

"Premier Lloyd George speaka of bis anxiety over the Russo-Pol.'sh situation, but it is no keener than the anxiety of France," said Le Figaro. "France has seen her strongest inter ests misrepresented.” According to Premier Clemenceau's newspaper, llomme Libre, Gen. Wrangel will send troops to assist the Poles lu Galicia. The following Bucharest telegram was printed by Homme Libre: "Roumanla i* understood to have con seated to allow Gen. Wrangel to send au array corps through Bessarabia to Gacllla. as a result of allied insistence.” "Will soviet Russia declare war on France” wag the flaring headline serosa the first page of the Paris Midi.

Fees collected at the City hospital from the government for disabled soldiers, from patients who receive money under the workmen’s compensation law and from private citizens who do not desire to be considered charity patients were increased 3SO per cent during the first six months of 1920 over the same period lu 191S, Dr. Harry Foreman, superin tendent, announced today. .The increase is due to the system In augurated and carried out by Mrs. Hetty Holtsclaw, private secretary to the su perintendent. who is in charge of the hospital accounting system, Dr. Fore man said. ATTENTION GIVEN TO COLECTIONS. Until Mrs. Holtsclaw started the sys tematic effort to collect fees to which the hospital Is rightfully entitled the collections were nominal. In many cases In which the patient’s hospital bill* were to be taken care of through'the provisions of the work men’s compensation act, the hospital never got the money because there was no one to /run down the circumstances of each case and asoertain whether the city wa entitled to the money. The hospital has also avoided the usual prolonged difficulties attendant upon collecting a bill from the government through the correctness and dispatch with which the processes required by the United States Public Health Service have been fulfilled, Dr. Foreman said. While collections of fees Jo which the hospital is clearly entitled have been In creased. collection# from private patients have been greater. , NO EMBARRASSMENT CAUSED PATIENTS. Dr. Foreman stated that this was due not to any attempt on the part of hos pital authorities to make private patients feel like they had to repay the city, but because many patients have been finan cially able and have requested that they be permitted to pay at least part of the expense. Figure# compiled by Mrs. Holtschaw show that the total collection# for the first Six mouths of this year were $lO,- 344.13, a* compared with $’A716.29 for the same period in 1918, showing a gain ov $7,027.81. In July, 1918, $897.80 was collected, while $2,382.30 was taken In during the same month this year. ALLEGED AUTO THIEVES RETAKEN Two Jump From Train While Being Brought Into City.

HOUSEWIVES FAVOR ECONOMY (Continued From Ft One.) better conditions of the market and re duce exorbitant price*. Mrs. William A. Ragan, secretary, read a report on the operation of two stands conducted on ihe central market by the league, showing the loss of over sll7 up to the time they were closed last month. "The stands were rouductsd during ten rijarket days, and after the first three times we found that we were losing money, since notio of the producers would sell to us except at a retail price," she said. "We also found that they not only would not sell to us at wholesale prices, but some would not sell at any price." Mrs. Hagan said that when It was learned the women were buying for tho Housewives' league, they would be told that everything was sold even though the wagon* were loaded. "Another element which added to our lack of success was tho fact that the wo’men of the organization would not serve on the stands," declared Mrs. Wil liam II Hurt, president. Mrs. Hart said that the club bad done a great many things during the short period of Its organization and could do a gr"Ht many icro if all the members would co-operate instead of criticising. Opinion was expressed by a number of tho women that tho action in closing the stands should have been decided by the league instead of the executive board. On this account the motion to accept tho treasurer's report for the operation of the stands was tabled until tbe next meeting. "In order to g#in fho best results," said Mrs. Powers, "there should be a referendum to tbe club members so that they can feel that they have something to say regarding the conduct of their club. “In this matter of tbe market stands the members at large had no voice in the matter, and I do not consider it fair in the executive board to keep the club in the dark in regard to the true stats of affairs.” In discussing the attitude of the com mission men toward the Housewives’ league, Mrs. Hart said that she had re ceived a letter from a commission man when the league was organized, in which he said that If tbe organization were formed to boycott the commiaslon houses they were ready for it. - Raisins ’ll Ruin ’Em CHICAGO, Aug. 12.—Herman J.
