And In response to thu call from every part of the Green Mountain State they raine, Joyul and ardent soldiers for the great cause, overcoming every obstacle that poor train service, almo.it impas. table roHds and long distance could put in their way, many coming from towns where no trains run, where, to net tlie:"B at all, they must needs drive through the still deep snow and over muddy and rocky roads, many leaving their homes when the leaving was most inconvenient for many reasons, all actuated by the one desire to add their bit to the de mand that Governor Clement call the extra session. The appointment for an Interview with the governor was made through Major Harvey Goodell, secretary of civil and mil itary affairs, but tho plans and the size of the proposed delegation were kept a secret fiom Governor Clement, lie. being used to the small groups of women who have constantly been going to call upon hlni to ask for the special session, suppos ing tills visit to b one of tho same sort.

'iie vote cn each bill was S3 to CO. on. a constantly increasing number of women offering to help, an ever-growing army enlisting in this the most 'ompro honslve draft of womanhood over mado in the Green Mountain State. "Make Ver mont the Perfect 36 was the slogan. Cards with tills legend printed thereon wero scattered throughout tho State, and from every quarter came the steady stream of replies, "Wo will mnko Ver mont the Perfect 3C." Plans wore first made for two hundred women to mnko up the delegation. Kach county In the State was subdivided Into a list of the larger towns, and a quota assigned from each of those towns. But it wasn't enough. Out of other towns came messages saying "We aro sending ten women, or twenty women or some more women," until the size of tho delegation had become so large that for a time, It seemed that It would be necessary to send out tho word "no more troops needed." However, when tho original plans for the delegation had been augmented to include more than twice, tho number first called for, It was found that four hundred was about ull that could get Into tho gover nor's rooms at tho State House. There are 14 counties in the State, and 12 of these wero represented In tho delegation. In addition to the per sonal visit to Gov. Clement at this time, each woman wrote a letter or sent a telegram to the governor, asking for tho special session, and each one got four other women to do tho same, these communications timed to reach the governor the day before and the day following the delegation's visit, so that his excellency has had the. privi lege In the last two days, of receiving 1,600 communications from the women, voicing their demnnd that he call the extra session for ratification. In addition, a constant stream of such letters and telegrams have been sent for months, and small groups of women from different parts of the Stato have madn many a pilgrimage to Montpe Her with tho one end in view that of rescuing Vermont from her position among the other States of the Union that have not ratified the amendment. The women gathered at the Community club house as eoon as they arrived in the capital, and the members of tho com mlttees from tho different counties, as Well as the speakers chosen to present the caso to the Governor were decorated with badges of yellow ribbon bearing the words "Special Session." Tho com mittee on arrangements were Mrs. Rob ert F. Bliss, Mrs. Fred Blanchard, Mrs. L. W. Hanson, Mlsa Pease, and Mrs. J. Borden Estce of Montpelier; Mrs. E. M. Saunders and Miss Edna Howard of Mld dlebury; Mrs. John Spargo of Benning ton; Mrs. William D. Policy of St. Johns hury; Mrs. B. D. Thomas and Mrs. G. W. Groom of St. Albans; Mrs. Lou K. Thomas of Itlchford; Mrs. Annette W. Parmaleo of Ennsburg Falls; Mrs. G, W. Patterson of Randolph; Miss Bessie Uncon Goodrich of Johnson; Mrs. M, L. Poarson of Orleans; Mrs, OIer C. Ash ton and Mliw Berenice Tuttlo of Rutland; Mrs. Robert F. Twltchcll of Bellows Falls; Mrs. Fremont Hamilton of Brat tleboro; Mrs, Herbert R. Miller of White Rlvor Junction; and Mrs. Helen Merrill of Woodstock. These women worked In tho towns in co-operation with the local suffragists, Insuring a highly organized and co-ordinated effort to mako tho plan most effective. At suffrage headquarters In the Hotel Vormont, Burlington, where Mrs. Olzon dam's office Is located, the chairman of ratification had tho assistance and advice of a splendid corps of local womon, com prising tho following suffragists, and they In turn enlisted the help of others in tho city, thus making tho fine showing of Burlington In sending to Montpelier a hundred womon, nnd this In spltn of tho fact that tho Burlington women were more than busy In getting ready for the play that was given this week by the Burlington Equal Franchise League to raise money for tho worK, Mrs. OUen dam's personal aids were: Mrs. E. II. Ilcud, acting president of the Stato Suf frago association; Miss Mabel Southwlck, Mrs. Henry Blackburn, Mrs. J. H. Mid dlcbroolc, Mrs, Violet Jloyt, Mrs. J, A, Waterman, Mrs, Susan Xott. The delegation was divided Into two sections, this being necessary both on ac count of the size and to make It possible for at least part of the women to get to Montpelier and return the samo day. The visits to tho Governor were therefore timed for five o'clock in the aftornoon and eight o'clock in the cvnlng. The two sections were about equally divided as to numbers, over four hundred in all mak ing tho call upon the Governor. Those comprising the afternoon .dolegatlon were able to leave Montpelier on an early eve ning train; those of the evening meeting were, for the most part, obliged to re main overnight, and these wero enter tained by tho local suffragists. The delegations, led by the chairman of ratification, Mrs. Olzendnm, formed single file, and marched tip State street to the capitol, arriving exactly on the minute for tho interview with the Gov ernor. Tho women presented nn Imposing stiectacle as they moved up the main street of the city. Silently the women marched up the steps of tho capitol, silently they entered the spacious room reserved for the audience chamber, silent ly they took their places in the space be fore the Governor's chair, and then tho silence was broken. Mrs. Olzendam opened the proceedings by addressing Governor Clement, introducing the worn en as the representatives of the women of the Stnte. She stated briefly the rea son for tho visit, closing her remarks with the quotation from tho Constitution of Vermont: "Every person ought to ob tain Justice freely, and without bring obliged to purchase it; completely and without denial; promptly and without delay." She was followed by Mrs. E. H. Read, acting president of the State association, whose subject was "Why We're Here." This wag a witty nnd up-to-tho-mlnuto little speech and made a fine opening for the speakers to follow. The following speakers then took up In the order named, the objections that have been made to a special session by the Gov ernor, and disposed of them in a fow words: "Exponso of a special soBslon" and "Further Legislation," Mrs. II. L. Beal of Sprlngfiold. "Referendum," Mrs. Cheney, St. Johns bury. "Infringement of Stato Constitution," Ann Batcheldcr, Woodstock "Women don't want It," Mrs. Annette Pnrmalee, Enosburg FallB, Tho reasons why a special session should be called nt once were taken up In tho af ternoon nnd evening as follows: "We want our representatives to rati fy," Mrs. Majp L. Powell, Burlington. "Vermont tradition demands It," Miss Ethel Herman, St. Albans. "Public Opinion demands It," Mrs. Rob ort Twltcheli, Bellows Falls "Teachers want ratification." Miss Bes file B. Goodrich, Johnson. "Discrimination against Vermont worn on," Mrs. W. L. Byrant. Springfield. "Not ns a reward, but as an act of Jus tlcc.'" Miss Evelyn Fuller. Woodstock "Political expediency." Ann Batcheldor, wcoastock. "The Vermont Idea." Miss Mabel South wick, Burlington The men want It," Mrs. Georgo Chcnoy, bt. Johnsbury That's where Vermont comes In," Mis Grace Clarke, Montpelier, The closing speech was made by Miss l.tlna Orvls of Manchester, who remlnde Governor Clement that all the arguments for suffrage had mnny times ben made, nut thnt they wero summed up in tw sentences written and spoken long ago tho first from tho Declaration of Independ once, "Governments derlvo their Just pow ers from the consent of tho governed, nnd the words of Abraham Lincoln, "thnt government of tho peoplo, by tho peoplo, tor trie people, shall not parish from, th earth." In reply Governor Clement said that ho was very glad to see tho women, but that thoro was nothing ho cared to say at tho present time. Briefly stated, Gov- ernor Clement's attitude weemed to bo that he showed no sign of receding from his former position, that tho entire ques tion should bo submitted to the people. In her speech on "Political Expediency" Miss Ann Ilntchcldcr reminded tho Gov ernor that oven If Vermont does not ratify tho amendment there are 17,600,000 aid General Benjamin Hill, campaign I M- Eugene Downer, who hnve been manager for General unrcgon, wno is " i"" ujn ,.i ..... ......... ... candidate for tho presidency and Is -nr. an.i -n. r,. n. mmi-i, ime .f- Idlnir nnnnlv with the revolut onists , lumen to iiinesmirg.-i.iiciiis uuuoipn had been wounded In a battle at Con-1 has returned to Shoreham otter a few treas In which the rebel forces werud!iys In town.-The Rev.
