and senate. Very little attention has
thus far been paid to the Joint reso
tatifijh by senator McGregor, which
proposes an amendment injectlnr wom
an's suffrage in the organic law of
the state. Grave doubt is entertained
as to the final adoption of this resolu
tion, and the chances for the adoption
of the amendment by the people, ap
pears to be even more remote, accord
ing to the views of many of the mem
bers of the legislature.
Representative Humphrey is appar
ently as determined as ever to push his.
joint resolution providing for the sub
mission to a vote of the people, the
question of a constitutional conven
tion. At first it appeared as if it
would be likely that the resolution
would be adopted, but since the in
jection of the prohibition question into
the subject, it has placed a different
phase on the matter. With this as an
issue, if the antis stand together, there
is no chance to master a two-thirds
vote in the house or senate on the
proposition. In the light of recent de
velopments, there is little doubt enter
tained but that a section of a ivew con
stitution for Texas would be devoted
to the prohibition question.
