"so it Is obvious that to such the career of

many women are quite outside this cate

Suffrage Leaders Declare
Faith in Men Who Will
Pass on Question
The ease of woman suffrage In Penn
sylvania Is about to go to the "Jury."
On November 2 the fate of the suffrage
amendment, which directly and Indirectly,
affects nearly 4,000,000 daughters of Penn
sylvania, will be In the hands of the
voters of this State for decision.
Suffrage In Pennsylvania will win In a
walk, according to Mrs Wllfled Lewis,
president of the Equal Franchise Society.
"That Is a foregone conclusion," the
said 'We een hope to carry Philadel
phia, though we will rely on the tide
of pro-suffrage sentiment in the rural dis
tricts to .counteract any prejudiced oppo
sition In the large communities.
"Practically over thing that Is decent Is
for suffrige," Mrs Lewis said. "The edu
cational forces, the press, the church and
temperance associations the good gov
ernment, labor and any number of other
Dr Anna Howard Shaw president of
the NiMonal Woman's Suffrage Associa
tion, also looks for lctory In this Statn.
"The Just men of Pennslvanla will rally
to our side," Ooctor Shaw said.
"One of the biggest 'boosts' . of the
campaign has been the fact that the lead
ing Philadelphia newspapers have been
for suffrage They have been a great
help We surely ought to win
Dlmner Beeber, honorary president of
the Pennsylvania Men's League for
Woman Suffrage, refused to maVe any
prediction He said
I am a suffragist and shall vote for
the amendment The Justice of the the
ory of woman suffrage is so apparent
thtt when a man begins to oppose It he
finds himself floundering around hope
lessly in a puddle
'In fact I have not heard as yet one
good sound argument used against it.
In referring to the Philadelphia vote
Miss Mary H Ingham, vice president of
the Equal Franchise Society, said
"Conservative politicians are naturally
opposed to the bringing of any large
body of Independent voters into the elec
torate "
Suffragists naturally expect a fight
from the political bosses and the 'gang'
as far as Philadelphia Is concerned. The
"gang rule, ' they say, will force many
men In this city to vote against the
amendment, while many of the independ
ent voters, it is hoped, will vote "yes "
Pernsylvanla has only 23 cities The
total population of the Stat6 Is close to
SOOO.000, whle the population of the 29
cities aggregates only approximately
S 096,701. according to the figures taken at
the last census These fgures to a cer
tain extent substantiate suffragist argu
ments thai the pro-suffrage feeling In the
rural dlstr'ct. may more than counter
balance the "gang rule in the larger
cities Suffrage workers have been active
in Pittsburgh, which, with a population
of more than 500 000. stards second on the
list as to size
Suffragists havte carefully noted the
fact that after taking Into consideration
the three cities named 26 cities in this
state remain on the list and of these
T range from 80 COO to 100 000
S rause from 200cl to "iO OOO
8 ranee from 10 000 to 25.000
3 rargo from 3.000 to 10.000
When these figures have been consid
ered, suffragists say, there is cause for
Philadelphia men, including J Levering
Jcnes, Isaac Clothier, William Draper
Lewis and Francis A. Lewis, soon gave
their co-oceratlon
Tho iflrst public action In the campaign
an action which meant a new era In
suffrage In Pennsylvania was the draw
ing of the bill for the presentation of the
amendment to the Legislature In 1911
J Levering Lewis was chairman of the
committee There was then a first hear
lrg in Harrisburg, soon followed by an
other In City Hall.
The atmosphere then changed as if by
magic. The suffrage cause, people saw,
was no longer a Joke. It was borne to
dignity Philadelphia saw the cause grow
by tremendous strides In 1912, when the
convention of the National Suffrage As
toclatton was held in this city. Mrs.
Lawrence Lewis was chairman of the
Convention Committee, and through her
Ingenuity and careful management, the
convention was able to raise money for
the cause
The year 1912 saw the first suffrage
meeting held In the streets of Philadel
phia. Others have followed in rapid suc
cession. Another party, the Woman Suf
frage party, meantime has sprung Into
existence, and after the convention was
held here In 1912, the headquarters of the
State association were removed to Har
risburg ,
What have the suffrage campaigners
done to arouse interest for their cause?
Meetings, almost Innumerable, have been
held all over the State, literature has been
scattered wrldecast to sow the teeds of
equal suffrage throughout the land. Two
pageants and parades, with thousands of
marchers, will have been held In this city
before November election day, even the
suffrage Liberty Bell ha traveled more
than 3000 miles in this State
Rain or shine, win or lose, suffragist
leader say they will not despair. The
work will continue, they say, right up to
ejection day, when they will rest their
case Then, at least, having put their
faith In Pennsylvania's manhood, they
will hope for the best.

Little Miss Vivienne Segal's Triumphs Amaze New
York and Give Her Friends in This City Abundant
Satisfaction and Pride
EARLY yesterday morning a chit of a
girl rushed into Broad Street Station
hurriedly and, throwing down her black
handbag, bought a ticket for New York
Two flights at a time she bounded up
the steps, her crop of brown curls bob
bing agitatedly, her brown eyes glisten
ing with enthusiasm. She might have
been a college girl, eager to taste the
Joys of her first collegiate experience, so
ardent and palpitant were her movements
and so intenso her "get-there ' expression
Miss Vivienne Segal, seemingly a bread-and-butter
miss, straight from the se
cluded precincts of a convent school, is
a Philadelphia girl, who, by an unexpect
ed stroke of luck (people always do call
It an unexpected stroke of luck when It
happens in this way), found herself cata
pulted Into the leading role of "The Blue
Paradise" over night. When she went to
bed on this momentous night there was
nothlrg more tangible to the realization
of her aspirations than dreams. But at
some witching hour her good fairy ap
peared, waved the magically potent wand
over her and in the morning the tele
phone In the home of her father. Dr.
Bernard Segal, 1537 South 6th street,
rang and the operator said New York
was calling for Miss Vivienne
Out of bed she sprang excitedly and
a conversation soriifethlng like this en
sued New York Hello, Miss Segal? This Is
the office of the Shubert Brothers calling.
Little Miss Philadelphia (breathlessly):
New York You are the young woman
who had a hearing In Mr. Shubert's
office some time ago along with a crowd
of other applicants?
Little Miss Philadelphia (more breath
lessly): Yes
New York: Mr. Shubert would like
you to report to him Immediately.
As a result of her Interview with J J.
Shubert, the Philadelphia girl became a
member of the Blue Paradise company
and signed a three-year contract But
the good fairy seemed to have a hanker
ing after the little actress and a few dava
afterward there was another call to the
Shubert office.
"The leading woman has been taken

Vivienne Segal Isn't quite sure whether
those four days were a dream o' a night

the big night came with all the New

out of a more robust person than the

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Sept. 14
About 3000 women suffragists are as
sembled hero today for the first session
of the three-day convention called to
Indorse tho Susan D. Anthony amend
ment to the national Constitution, which
would give country-wldo voting power to
There were voting delegatea present
from the 12 suffrage States, while tho
States In which women cannot vote had
representatives without voting power on
hand, .
A principal topic bofore tho women
was the question of opposing the Demo
cratic party because It has not come
out for national sum age. The sentiment
against such opposition Is led by Dr.
Anna Howard Shaw, president of the Na
tional American Woman Suffrage Asso
ciation, who declared that the women
often hurt their own cause and alienated
their friends among the men by opposing
the party in power.
Thcro was much discussion also of
the present tactics of soliciting Individual
members of Congress in an effort to
obtain support of tho amendment
This is a very active year for woman
suffrage, for the question will come be
fore the voters in the four great States
of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey
and Massachusetts. In Iowa the vote on
suffrage will bo taken next spring, while
another twelvemonth will bring tho Issue
before the voters In West Virginia, Ten
nessee and Louisiana.
