" No. 1 Continued From Page 1 Mrs. Stanton, Miss Anthony, Dr. An na Howard Shaw and Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, the latter of whom is now ita president. The nineteenth amendment, which bars her name, was drafted by Miss Anthony in 3875 and was first intro duced in congress in 1878 by Senator A. A. Sargent, of California; a.nd it is In the same language that the new principle of the national law reads: "Article , Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the UYiited States or by any state on ac count of sex. ' "Section 2. Congress, shall' have power by appropriate legislation, to enforce the provisions o? this article." The amendment holds the record of being before the country longer than any other successful amendment to the constitution. It was introduced as the 16th amendment and has been succes sively the 17th, 18th and ,19th and has been before every session of congress since its initial appearance. . During the first 35 years after its Introduction into congress the amend ment made practically no progress and until seven years ago it had not been debated on the floor for 30 years. But , the campaign for the movement was slowly but steadily gaining ground in the states. Meanwhile Miss Anthony made a test of the right of women to cast the ballot by going to the polls and vot ing. She was an'ested and convicted, and, though she refused to pay her fine, was never jailed. She. became, however, the forerunner of the "mili tants" who adopted the forceful tac tics of the latter days of the campaign. State after state gradually en franchised its women citizens. Begin ning with Wyoming in 1869, by 1919 sixteen states had given women the right to vote, and fourteen states had presidential suffrage previous to rati fication of the amendment. Militancy in the fight tor suffrage in America made its appearance with the formation of the National Woman' party in 1913. On the eve of Presi dent Wilson's inauguration, 8,000 wom en led by Alice Taul, now the chairman of the party, attempted to march .from the Capitol to the White House. They were . so harassed by a hostile crowd which overran an unsympathetic po lice and the capital of the United States had its first experience with suffrage .riots. Continuing their demonstrations over a period of seven years members of the womens party picketed the White House with banners- in their hands and served terms in iail for the disturbances of the peace wnich grew out of their parades and blockade of the executive mansion. During the last -few months before the adoption of the amendment the militants redoubled their exertions. Several demonstra tions were held of the steps of the Capitol and on New Year's Day, 1919, watch fires were lighted on front of the White House in which every speech made by President Wilson in Kurcpe n democracy and self-government was burned. The acts, however, were dis avowed by the National Association. Promptly with the passage of the amendment by the congress the suf frage forces turned their attention to ratification by the necessary two-thirds of the states. More special sessions of the state legislatures were called to act upon the 19th 'than upon any other amendment. ' . Wisconsin and Michigan on June 10 were the first states to ratify, quickly followed on June 16 by New York, Kansas and Ohio. ' Other states ratified in the following order: Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massa chusetts, Texas, Iowa, Missouri, Arkan sas, Montana, Nebraska, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Utah, California, Maine, North Dakota, South Dakota, Colorado, Rhode Island, Kentucky, Ore gon, Indiana, Wyoming, Navdda, New Jersey, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Washington and. .Tennessee. - From its beginning in this country, the suffrage movement k met 'deter mined opposition from women as well as from men. The first organized op position on the part of women mani fested itself in 1873 when a committee of prominent women presented a peti tion to congress "protesting against the extension of suffrage to women." Mrs. W. T. Sherman, heied the -committee of which Catherine Ward Beech er, sis of the famous divine, was a member. Various anti-suffrage societies came into being subsequently, until the Na tional association opposed to woman suffrage was formed in 1911, with Mrs. Arthur M. Dodge, of New York, as its first president.. . This body, step by step, fought tbeadoption and ratifica tion of the amendment. Pull suffrage is enjoyed today by the women of 21 foreign countries, in cluding the new stati of Czecho-Slovakia and Poland and the ancient na tions of England, Germany and the Scandinavian countrir. Now that the women of the United States have won the right equally with the men to take their part in the government of the re public the effect of the women's vote on the political life of the country re mains' for time t show. .inueti From Page One of Taylor county have been cited to ap pear before the governor on August 24 to answer certain charges preferred before the governor. The exact nature of the charges could not be learned, but It is suggested that the hearing is in connection with the action of the board with regard to the reduction of certain tax levies in that county.

Mr. Crane was convioted of embezzlement in Hills boro county and sentenced to serve five years in the state prison.

If not, here are a few paragraphs from his article: Many of our gas companies are prac N tically starving in a land of plenty. The oil used in gas manufacture five years ago represented a cost of twelve to fifteen cents a thousand feet of gas made. At prices which some of the companies are compelled to pay today the cost of a thousand feet has risen from thirty to fifty cents. Oil for merly costing three and four cents a gal lon is commanding twelve to fifteen cents today. A careful examination shows that steam coal such as is used by the gas com panies has advanced about ninety-five per age of about ninety-five cents a thousand feet to a price of $1.07 for the same unit quantity. It is evident from the foregoing figures that the way of the gas companies at the present time is not a road leading to prosperity. "Of all the articles or products that enter into everyday consumption gas has shown the least increase during the past few years. From the commencement of the war until the middle of last year the price of clothing increased approximately cent in five years. During the same time f 100 per cent, and food ninety per cent. The gas coal has gpjie up seventy per cent, coke 150 per cent and labor 110 per cent. Dur ing the last ten years the price of gas in our largest cities has advanced from an aver- f igures showing the cost of gas in 100 cities during this same time indicate only a twelve per cent advance in the price of gas. t r ensacoia Gas Company !
