Small Politicians Attempt Comeback On Suffrage Issue National leaders In the movement to secure ratification of the equal suf frage amendment that comes before the legislature -when It assembles In extraordinary session Aug. 9, eonfearsl tneniselves frankly disappointed that the. movement has assumed a factional aspect. Without exDresstna- anv criticism, the leaders are v quietly making an effort to convince the .people of the state that the Issue la too bis to suffer a the- hands of factionallsts who seem to be making the most of the opportunity to appoint themselves and their po litical friends on "ratification commit tees. The Tennessee League . of women bters ratification committee la composed almost exclusively, go far as -the men are concerned, or those who were affiliated with Luke Lea when he was thought to be a fao tor in state politics. Tn almost every county where appointments were made inose Who were thus honored inaicateu that somebody had lost sight of the fact that "the world do move" and that In the minds of some the delusion was still harbored that Lea and Ex Gov. Rye were still factors In politics. The national leaders were quick to scent the drift of things. With their experience In many states they soon discovered that there was an element in Tennessee, as In other states, plan ning to stage a comeback through a manifestation of spectacular zeal In favor of woman suffrage. In other words they found an ex-element, with out friends or influence in the legisla ture, attempting not amy to get con trol of the fight for ratification but us-lns- everveffort to prevent other friends of the cause from taking any part in the campaign. The situation Is attributable in large measure to the fact that Mrs. George F. Milton, of Chattanooga, wife of the editor of the News, Is chairman of the league. Mr. Milton ts one or tne tore mo critics of flov. Roberts and every thing the state administration stands for. Mr. Milton Is usually accused of helnir aetuateri hv nettv malice or by direction of the politician who wields a great influence over mm in au uuugs political. Mrs. Ml ton was a canaiuaie lor aem gate to the national Democratic con vention and was aecisiveiy ooien manlv hecause of her husband. En joying the disfavor of Mr. Milton may be named such men as Lornen nun. member of congress from the Fourth district and member of the national committee from Tennessee.
