Jack ling Elected—Ha* Signifi cance in View of Approach ing Merger. It i* learned (hat D. C. Jackling. of Utah Copper and a number of other copper companies, has been elected to the directorate of the Nevada Northern railroad and that in organ ization of the new board he has been made fist vice president of the road. Mr. Jackling will bring consider able demonstrated ability to the use of the board as a practical railroad man, as well as one who knows all the ins and outs of operation of ore carrying lines. In the last year or so he has constructed and equipped considerable mileage for the Ray Consolidated in Arizona and for Chino in New Mexico. The important feature of the elec tion of Mr. Jackling to the Nevada Northern board, however, is in the fact that it serves to set forth very clearly the large interest, probably the control, which Utah Copper peo ple have attained in Nevada Con., which owns the Northern. It is not presumed that the coming of Mr. Jackling to the Northern official fam ily will make any change In its con duct at this time. Later, when the big merger goes through, however, the election of Mr. Jackling to the vice presidency would indicate that the railroad would operate in the smelting division rather than in the mining, the merger rumors up to the present time all conceding the man agement of the smelting end to the Guggenheim forces while giving over the mining end to the Cole-Ryan crowd.

The committee ap peared to be divided on the question so action on It was postponed until today. When the luncheon recess was taken, Attorney Brandels still had Mr. Finney under examination.

REAR I VIEWS OE LEADERS Women In Washington Convention Listen to Pre* sentation of Flow of Ideas WASHINGTON. April 16.—Alice Duer Miller, the novelist, presented a dramatic argument for woman suffrage before the National associ ation convention today. Mrs. Miller is the author of “The Modern Ob stacle,” "Less Than Kin” and other works and is treasurer of the Equal Franchise Society of New York of which Mrs. Clarence Mackay is presi dent. Mrs. Miller said: “If a thousand years from now I were writing the history of the woman suffrage movement in this country, I should say something like this: ‘America was at that time un der the dominion of two ideas, borne by two currents, ofter opposing.* One, her respect for effectiveness, her love for practical achievement; not only, as one of her foreign critics Bald, her admiration for a ‘slick man,’ but an honest desire whenever a piece of work was to be done to help to do it. The other, and many people won’t agree with me, is the enlargement of the democratic idea. The Woman’s Suffrage Movement is in complete harmony with both these tendencies. "No one denies we have work enough to do, and I am glad of it. for I believe ideals without work are almost as pernicious as work with out ideals. We have plenty of work to do, but it is not that, it is not the organizations and the growth of membership and the spreading of theories that makes me confident of success. It is the extraordinary spirit that animates the women who are working for woman’s suffrage— the sense of comradeship and com munity among them—rich and poor, educated and illiterate, old and young, mothers and daughters. “A spirit like this promises suc cess. but It promises immediate suc cess, it seems to me, because it is in harmony with our own times, our own people, and our own form of , government.” Dorothy Dix, in the language and gestures of an old negro Mammy, ex plained the needs of suffrage as she saw them to the convention. The lack of backbone is the reason for woman not having the ballot, she declared. She spoke as follows: "I ain’t never been one dat run off after ev'ry new belief dat comes along, an’ dats de reson dat I ain’t never took up wid dis heah doctrine about things not bein’ made at de start, but Just havin’ growed. Cose everybody to dere taste, but hit seems lak to me dat dem folks what laks to claim a monkey for dere grandpaw has got mighty little pride and mighty little call to brag on dere family tree. “But I ain’t ever had no trouble in believin’ dat woman was made out of man’s rib. What worries me is why de Lawd's choice fell on de rib, which ain’t nothin' but a sort of rafter to hold up a man’s chist an’ swell hit out, an’ make him look proud, but dat ain't nowise impor tant in hltBelf, an’ dat hit is about de easiest thing dat a man can spare wldout missin’ hit. “Cose I ain’t a presumin’ to criti cise de Good Master, but hit does look lak to me dat wuen he was a (Continued on page four.)
