so up to this time.
The adavnce in the price of print
paper makes it impossible for us to
parry a large arrears list. We make
you this proposition: Any subscriber
who "will send us $1.50 between now
and the first of July we will send The
Herald and News and the Progressive
Farmer one year. Another simple
statement is this: We shall regret to
part with any of our readers, hut all
whose dates are in arears further than
1916 who do not send as much as ons
dollar on the subscription by the first
of July will at that time be taken
from our mailing lit. It is not a matter
of choice but of necessity. "We
had thought of writing you a personal
letter but that will take stamps and
time and the label on your paper

Please attend to this at once if you
want The Herald and News continued.
It is a simple matter of business. We
must pay cash for the white paper
and the price is 50 per cent higher
than it was three weeks ago. The

hope yoa appreciate The Herald and
News sufficiently to comply "with this
request. If not we better stop it. In
taking off names we will be no reepector

Suiirturp Plank is Added After Causiitir
St. Louis, June 16.?The Democratic
national ronvention finished its work
today by adopting the party platform j
exactly as approved by President Wdl-'
son and submitted by tbe resolutions
committee, including the plank on
Americanism and that favoring woman
suffrage, but not until the harmony
of its three days' sessions had
been disturbed with a row over the
No voice was raised against the vigorous
declarations of the Americanism
plank, but at one time it locked
as if the suffrage plank had been
lost. After Senator Walsh of Montana,
had told the convention that
President Wilson himself considered
it vital to party success, however, it
was" voted into the Dlatform, 188 1-2 to
181 1-2. The platform was then adopted
iAs adopted the suffrage plank
"We favor the extension of the
franchise to the women of this counI
try, State by State, on the same terms
as to the men."
Better Than G. 0. P.
The suffrage leaders considered it
a much more favorable declaration
than they got from the Republican
convention at Chicago. They threw
all their force behind it and won the
support of the administration leaders,
who were found fighting for them
when danger threatened.
Hagfe .d and worn from an allnight
session, the platform makers
were not ready with their report until
after noon, when .Senator Stone,
sleepless for more than thirty hours,
took the speakers' stand and, explaining
that he was too tired to read the
document, gave over this task to Senators
Walsh of Montana, and Hollis |
von- Uomnctiirp Thev alternated
in reading the long declaration.
The fight on the suffrage plank
was in the air. Everybody was keyed
up to it, and when, at the conclusion
of the reading of the platform,
Martin Lomasney of Boston, a delegate,
claimed the attention of the
chair, it was thought he was opening
the fight, and it was several minutes
before the shouts of approval
and cries of disapproval could 'be
stilled sufficiently to 'hear that he
v,-anted to put the convention oh record
as sympathizing with "the people
of Ireland." I
"Raus mit 'im," reared a Baltimore
delegate, and the convention hall
rocked with laughter.
The Real IWork.
The real work broke in after, when
Governor Ferguson of Texas who
headed the minority report against
the administration plank, was given
thirty minutes in which to present it.
The piank offered by the minority
'-The Democratic party always has
stood for the sovereignty of the several
States in the control and regulation
of elections. We reaffirm the
historic positions of our party in this
regard and favor the continuance of
that "wise provision of the federal
constitution which vests in the several
States of the union the power to
prescribe the qualifications of their
Besides Governor Ferguson the report
was signed by former Representative
Bartlett of Georgia; James R.
Nugent of (New Jersey, and Stephen
B. Fleming of Fort Wayne, Ind.
The burden of Governor Ferguson's
argument -was that suffrage being
purely a State's right question, the
wording of the majority's plank was
a presum-ptuous recommendation to
the State on how to conduct their
Piled With Questions.
Anti-suffrage delegates on the floor
piled the governor with questions,
wrhich brought out fresh arguments
against the administration plank.
^ - J 4."U ~
wnen Ferguson naa nuisueu me vivuvention
was in confusion and the tone
of the uproar in the delegate sections
was indicative of sympathy with the
opponents of the majority plank.
When Senator Stone took the
speaker's place to defend the plank
he was bombarded with a running
fire of questions and arguments from
delegates on the floor, which eventually
exhausted the time allotted to
Anti-suffrage delegates loudly challenged
his reefrences to Ferguson's
statements with cries of: "That's not
what he said" and "That's not fair."
Many delegates openly took the position
that the question was becoming
much confused by the manner of its
presentation. Finally Senator Stone
yielded to Senator Pittman of Nevada
one of the suffrage champions.
The crowd wanted to howl Pittman
| .'-o .vij and cried "Vote, vote!"
j "Yes, i know you want to vote,"
Pittman shouted at his opponents.
"You'd rather do anything else than
hear the truth."
"Are you men who are willing to
near women denounced afraid to hear
a man say something in their behalf?
I want to appeal to you to give your
sisters and daughters and mothers
the right to vote."
I "What's that got to do with this?"
[ chorused the delegates.
Finished His Speech.
Finally, ignoring lesser outbreaks,
and shouting abo?.e the confusion,
Pittman managed to get through with
Senator Walsh of Montana then
took the platform and, in an impassioned
speech, swept aside the smaller
questions which had been injected
into the fight, and told the delegates
that President 'Wilson himself knew
the ^lank was in the platform and
considered it essential to party victory.
"Whatever your opinions may be,"
he said, "we shall never be anything
Dut a discordant ana uiviueu party
unless we surrender some of our convictions
to the wisdom of a majority.
Here you are confronted, as one of
our famous leaders said, "with a condition,
not a theory." The twelve
suffrage States represent ninety-one
votes in the electoral college. Every
politicial party has made tbis declaration
in some form or other. It becomes
a simple question of whether
you will incur the enmity of these
i women. There is no possibility of
' - ? sb 3 i. At,:?
losing a single vote 11 you uuupt uus
majority plank, t>ecause every other
party' has done the same.
"I ask you," he cried, "if you're going
to >put a resolution in here that's
a lie. You can't adopt this minority
report without stultifying yourselves."
Agreeable to Wilson.
Senator Walsh ^ien explained that
| the president knew about the suffrage
plank and added:
'"He believes it vital to bis success
that it stay there. I ask you with all
fervor of my being, who is there here
who is wiser or more patriotic than

Senator Walsh finished speaking and
the closing words of his plea for the

cries of "Vote, vote." but they were
not shouts for the defeat of the plank.
