nerly three times as many native-born women as all the foreign-born men and women put together. "IT WILL INCREASE THE CRIMINAL VOTE" Again facts prove the contrary. Only five out of every hundred criminals in our prisons are women. Even in our cities the women prostitutes number less than half of one per cent. It take from eight to twenty men to support such a woman. Those men all have the vote. Since the majority of women are good and not bad, therefore the result of giving women the suffrage is not evil but good. "WOMEN DO NOT NEED TO VOTE BECAUSE MEN WILL LOOK AFTER THEIR INTERESTS.".

A pooling place in the states where women vote is as orderly as a church and the same neighbors meet in both places. "WOMEN WOULD WANT ALL THE POLITICAL JOBS." Very few women want to held office of any kind. Most of them are too busy with
