tho Legislative committee of Penn

ture In tho furtherance of tho work
of extending tho franchise to women.
Circular letters have been sent to

tions put to them Is, If elected,
would you support a bill In tho leg
islature providing for tho referen
dum for a constitutional amendment
granting full suffrago to women
upon tho same terms upon which It
Is now given to man?
From Wayne county, II. Clark

luent In this direction In tho stato

"Tho chief reply Is tho homo. God

"Tho Keystone State" Subject of
Governor John K. Tenor was tho
guest of honor at tho annual dinner
of tho Wllkcs-Barro Chamber of
Commerco on Tuesday evening. Ills
subject was tho stato of Pennsylva
nia, to which iho paid proper tribute.
Tho governor said that Pennsyl
vania takes rank as the foremost
stato In tho union In material p re
pressiveness and In Its pursuance of
practical statesmanship. Tho last
but one, of tho original thirteen
states, it started out with a strong
er framework of government than

with the single exception of high
ways It has public Improvements In
a measure greater than most other
states. In the matter of Improved
roads, he said, the legislature may
bo relied on to take such action as
will Keep us abreast with the times.
Governor Tenor's speech was time
ly, In admlrablo taste, and a proper
rebuke to the many who have been
decrying Pennsylvania because of
some misfortunes and defects which
feature conduct of public affairs
everywhere. Pennsylvania does not
claim to liavo attained perfection,
but it has reason to feel elated, when
Its industrial, financial, commercial
and governmental affairs are con
trasted with those of other states of
the union. Governor Tener Is mak
ing that fact clear.
