Chicago.-The e: fct of the activity
of women voters in a number of states
w:here equal suffrage is now estab
lished was a source of considerable
speculation and anxiety among the
leaders in the headquarters of the sev
eral parties. Women were a factor
at the polls in this election for the
first time in hational politlds. In six
states, wonen voted for presidenTial
electors and for that reason the party
managers had little upon which to

these states. The six states in which
the women voted were C'alifornia.
Wyoming. I'tah. Colorado, Idaho and
Washington. In five other states.
.lichigan, Arizona. Kansas, Orr gon
and Wisconsin, the right of women to
vote was an issue at the polls.
The advent of women Into national
politics was responsible for efforts
that were made during the campaign
to secure the support of the women
of the country for the sevral presi

of bureaus to enlist the support of the
women aSd the appearance of women
of prominence on the stump were
among the unusual features of this

slow in coming in from the country
