Equal Suffrage May Be Factor in Presiden tial Election Matter Which Chairmen of Na tional Committees Will Be Called Upon to Consider Some of the Laws for Which Women Are Responsible, At tributed Directly to Their Vote and Influence. WASHINGTON. Almost 1,000, 000 women will be eligible 1 to vote for their choice for president of the United - States In 1912. Those wom en are to be found In the six western states which have already granted equal suffrage, the number of women In each state who are eligible to vote being about as follows: California, 600,000; Colorado, 160,000; Idaho, 48, 000; Utah, 65,000; Washington, 120, 000, and Wyoming, 35,000, or a total of 928.000. Those figures are not exact, but constitute the best possible estimate until such time as the census bureau gets out its figures showing the analy sis of the population by states. It is possible that before the election in 1912 more states may give the women a chance to vote for the presidential candidates, as the equal suffrage cam paigners have such states as Nevada, Oregon, Kansas and Wisconsin marked as trembling in the balance on the suffrage question. There are in the United States to day Just 19 states which have no form of suffrage for women, although some cities In them have. Those states are Nevada, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Indiana, Kentucky, Ten- majunmes nessee, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Vir ginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Penn sylvania, Rhode Island and Maine. On October 12 last California Joined the states granting equal suffrage to women, the vote on that occasion be ing 119,086 for and 117,408 against the measure, or a majority of 1678 for equal suffrage, with some minor towns to hear from. California bad rejected the proposition In 1896, Oregon and several of the other western states have several times rejected the amendment, and Massachusetts In 1895 voted on the question and refused equal suffrage, the vote in this state at that time being: Yes, 109,204; No, 187,840, or 78,636 majority against equal suffrage. Since then the ques tion has not been brought to the ref erendum in this commonwealth. In the western states the question has come before the voters quite reg ularly, for, according to some of the opponents of the equal suffrage In that section of the country, "a 'yes' vote settles the matter and a "no vote sim ply means the question comes up again in a couple of years." Kentucky Pointed the Way. : Kentucky was the first state In this country to give women the right to vote. In 1838 that state gave the school suffrage to widows with - chil dren of school age, and In 1861 Kansas gave the school suffrage to all women. Year by year from then on the move ment for woman's suffrage gained strength throughout the country, but It .was always granted In modified form as the right to . vote on school matters, local tax questions, municipal suffrage, etc. In 1869 Wyoming gave the full suffrage to women, being the first state In the country to do so. - School suffrage was granted to the women of New Hampshire in 1878, by Massachusetts In. 1879, by Connecticut In 1893 and Vermont In 1880. In addi tion to the si vtate In this country which have given the full suffrage to worn so, ihsre .. are many countries) which have given a modified form of suffrage to women and full suffrage has been granted the women by the Isle of Man, New Zealand, South Aus tralia. West Australia, and in 1902 full suffrage was granted the women of Federated Australia and New South Wales: In 1903 Tasmania gave full state suffrage to women, Queensland follow ed the next year, Finland gave full national suffrage In 1906 and Norway the following year. In 1908 Victoria gave full state suffrage, and in 1911 both houses of the Icelandic parlia ment gave the suffrage to women. Taking the states In this country and the other nations which have granted full suffrage to women, It Is found that full suffrage is enjoyed by a population of 15,614,647, of which num ber 6,163,473, or . about one-third, are found In the states having full suff rage In this country. How They Vote. In the states which have equal suf frage, the women's organizations cent a series of questions to the mayors of each city and 140 of the mayors an swered the queries. In all cases those mayors were unanimous In say ing that- equal suffrage - had shown good results; that women vote at least as generally as men. according to registration; that they oppose cor ruption In politics; that they have not been mixed In corruption or bribery, and that there has been less of this since women had the right to vote; that on the whole better men " have been elected to office; that women have shown an Intelligent interest in state and municipal affairs and are ready to rally to the support of good measures; that the percentage of vicious women who vote Is small; and most of the mayors recommend equal suffrage to all other cities and states. From this same series of letters or reports from the 140 mayors, It ap pears that In Idaho 45 per cent of the women voted in Boise City, 40 per cent voted in Emmett, 90 per cent vot ed In Pierce and two-thirds of the women voted in Troy. In Utah the reports show that 75 per cent of the women voted in Bear River, 95 per cent voted In Garden City, 95 per cent voted in Grouse Creek, 90 per cent voted in Keysvllle, 90 per cent voted In Logan and 90 per cent voted in Nephl. In Kansas the reports from' these same sources show that 80 per cent voted as Eskrldge and 80 per cent voted at Miltonvale. 8eem to Prize Vote. In Wyoming the reports state that the women voted as strongly in pro portion to registration aa did the males. If not to a larger extent In am Denver, Colo., In the election of 1909, no less than 30,000 women voted and only about 600 of that number were classified as vicious women. In other words, In that Denver election 43 per cent of the vote was cast by women and only 40 per cent of the vote was cast by males. ' Both houses of the National Parlia ment of Federated Australia for the session of 1909-10 passed a resolution saying that after 66 years of woman's suffrage in varying parts of the coun try and nine years as a common wealth, the reform has Justified the hopes of Its supporters. Relative to the percentage of wom en voting In the states where they have that' right, the woman's suf frage organizations point out that men do not exercise their right to vote as they should, and that, therefore, the question as to women doing so is not very material. They point out' that in the presiden tial election of 1904, the vote cast was only 13,961,560, while 21.000,000 1 men were eligible to vote. Then again, they say that in the city election In Phila delphia, In 1903, the Reform party re ports that 49 per cent of the. men fail ed to vote, and that In the same year In the election In New. York city 60,000 registered voters failed to cast their ballots. Their Choice of Political Offices. ' .In the states where" ' full suffrage has been granted to women for some time experience has ahown that wom en do not to any great extent run for political office. Going . through the records of those states it will appear that, for the most part, women have been candidates for educational posi tions and for the office of county or state - treasurer. Those are the two classes of offices, which they, seem to have singled out as being most desir able from : their standpoint, and to which they have been most generally elected. ; . ,. V . ,- -.. .; ',.-. In several of the states giving fun equal suffrage women have sat on jo- i . r, N ries and have done acceptable service, but there ore no statistics available to show the number who have done such duty. ' Laws Women Have Htlped to Make. . The male mind naturally inquires as to what laws the women In the equal suffrage states have been responsible fort For this question the women's suffrage" organizations have evidently primed themselves. Here are some of the laws adopted in the equal suffrage states since women had the right to vote, which they maintain have been championed by women,' and that wom en are practically responsible. Colorado gave equal suffrage In 1893, and since that time the women claim responsibility for securing the passage of laws forblddlngthe-tnsur-ance of children under ten years old; establishing a state home for depen dent children, with two of the five members of its trustees to be women; statute requiring three out of the six county visitors to be women; estab lishing a state industrial home for girls, three of the five trustees to be women; statute making women equal guardians of their children; statute raising the age of protection for girls to 18 years; requiring one woman on the board of the State Insane asylum;' establishing parental or truant schools, providing for the care of the feeble minded; providing for tree preserva tion; requiring public school teachers to teach humanity to animals; making the Humane society a state bureau of child and animal protection; establish ment of Juvenile courts; compulsory education; establishing state traveling libraries, commission of five women; against the employment of child labor In mines; providing accident and for eign life insurance companies that have to be sued be made to pay the costs; restricting hours of labor for children, and for women; free em ployment bureaus; making it a misde meanor to neglect to support aged or Infirm parents; abolishing ' system binding out girls of the Industrial school; and in Denver other beneficial legislation has been secured by them. Work of Women In Idaho. . Idaho gave equal suffrage In 1896. Since then women claim to have been instrumental In securing these laws. Making gambling illegal; raising the age of protection for girls to IS years; establishment of libraries and reading rooms; requiring 3 per cent of the school funds to be expended for school libraries, the books to be chos en by the State Board 'of Education; establishing the State Library com mission; providing for a department of domestic science In the State uni versity; providing for a course of do mestic science In the Academy of O Idaho; establishment of the Industrial reform school; pure food act; statute giving married women the same right to dispose of her property as men. Utah gave full suffrage to women In 1896. Since then the women claim these laws as a result of their efforts: Requiring that women teachers be paid the same salaries as male teach ers; raising the age of protection of girls to 18 years; establishing free public libraries in cities and towns; requiring in all educational institu tions supported by publlo funds In struction, In physiology and hygiene; creating a state art Institute; provid ing free lecture courses each year at the capital on sanitary science, hy giene and nursing; curfew bell; mak ing It a misdemeanor to sell tobacco, etc., to minors; providing for the pro tection of dependent boys under 14 and girls under 16 years and the pun ishment of persons responsible for their care, neglect or Ill-treatment; re quiring the establishment of kinder gartens in oil school districts of a population of 2,000 or more. T Record In Wyoming. Wyoming, gave equal suffrage In 1869. These laws made since that time women claim chief responsibility for: Equal pay for men and. women teachers; raising the age of protection for girls to 18 years; making child neglect, abuse, etc., punishable; for bidding the employment of beys under 14 and girls of any age In the mines; forbidding the employment of children under 14 years In any publldi exhibi tion. - .- . ,. . In ten years of equal suffrage In Colorado only one woman has been convicted of Illegal voting. Relative to the intelligence of women as voters the equal suffrage organisations point out that 'the 1907 report of the No tional Educational commission says 64,183 girls were graduated' from .the publlo high ' schools ' at compared to 83,202 boyr from the same sctocts, and there were 116,841 more girlj than boys in the publlo high school.
