Tlio text of above constitutional amend ment Is as follows: "The right of citizens of the United Slates to vote shall not be denied or abridged by tlio United Slates or by any State on account of sex, Congress shall havo power by appropriate legislation, to enforce tho provisions of this article." Tho mlsunderstnndlng referred to runs i.omethlng like this: "It Is all very well for you to get your amendment ratified uy iiiu j ui 11 1 1 111 imriy-aix niuittn, uui 0 ci then Vermont women will not be h le- to voto for State officers thnt gives ; 1 authority only to voto for federal cillctrs."

Manifestly, unless olio Is to believe Vermont Is still a republic, thoso who hold that unless our Constitution of Ver mont, Is amended to Includo women In tho electorate, wo t-hall bo deprived ofi our political liberty at least until 1323 tho very first dato on which wo can amend ,. our Constitution nro mistaken. our i onsiuuiion, nro misiHRen. it , - . , . , u in i connection It is to ro notcu tnai ... ny an n't or its Legislature in special session November 1, California became the elKhtecntb State' th sixth full suf- tho eighteenth State, tho sixth full suf- irngc mniu, io rainy mo icuerai huiliusu amendment.
