Several men have recently
expressed themselves to us as
being willing to organize an Oil
Stock Company in Harmon
County, and said they would put
$100.00 cash into it, and if 100
men would do that, a $10,000.00
company could be organized,
and that would be a sufficient
amount to put down a test well
to see whether or not oil was
here. There has been several oil
men here an they say the indi-
cations are that oil is here, and
why not us home people be will-
ing to make the test and see
whether or not it is here. Sev-
eral hundred acres of land is
now under lease in Harmon
County, and money is being paid
to hold these leases, and it is
reasonable to think that these
fellows holding these leases
think the oil to be here or they
would not spend this money.
lias ventured to question the
power of the Legislature of Illi
nois to do this.
"This winter the Legislature
of NOrth Carolina should pass an
act conferring Presidential suf
frage upon the women of this
State. This will require only a
majority vote In each House and
will not need to be ratified at the
ballot box. As the Democratic
party has pledged itself for
equal suffrage by 'State action'
no member of the Legislature
who stands by the platform of
his party can vote against it
The same is true of the Republi
can members of the Legislature,
for that party too is pledged to
equal suffrage by 'State action'.
Their pledges were put in the
respective party platforms as a
bid for the 91 electoral votes in
the States where women voted
and to repudiate that pledge
would prove insincerity and an
attempt to obtain the Presidency
under false pretenses".

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE URGES
, SUFFRAGE FOR SOUTHERN WOMEN
In an address delivered re
cently \pefore the Woman's Buf

Justice Walter Clark, of North
Carolina, urged that the Legis
latureof his State pass a bill
this winter conferring presiden
tial suffrage upon women.
Judge, Clark said in part:

State Constitution but the Fed

the Electors for Pfesident shall

"When the women of Illinois
perceiyed that the influence of
the Liquor Trusts and Brewers
was such that a Constitutional
.Amendment to strike out the
word 'male' in State elections
could not be adopted at the polls
they procured the passage of an
ct by a majority vote, indeed in
one house by a majority of one,
which directed that the selection
of the 29 presidential electors
for that state should be made by
the vote of men and women 21
years of age. Upon the validity
of this action the Presidential
election might have turned. But
