MAYORS FAVOR WOMAN SUFFRAGE The fifth annual conference of the Mayors of New York State, re cently held in Auburn, adopted a resolution in favor of submitting the question of woman suffrage to the voters of New York in 1915. You cannot fulfill your task without liberty, which is the source of responsibility. You cannot fulfill it without equality, which is liberty for each and all. Your claim to the suffrage is identical with that of the workingmen. Like them, you seek to bring a new element of progress to the common work. You feel that you, too, have something to say, not merely indirectly, but legally and officially, with regard to the great prob lems which stir and torture the soul of mankind.— Joseph Mazzini.
