P. PHILLIPS, Trustee. I ably did not think this method could be carried in convention; and finally the committee reported Sen. George's method and it was adopted. Afterwards, Capt.

Fer-rell, of Meridian, who was in favor of woman suffrage, told me that the suffrage committee had hung fire so long because the vote was one majority for woman suffrage, and it was not supposed it would be acceptable to the convention. Mrs. Mary C. Bradford, now State superintendent of public institutions in Colorado, came to Mississippi in 1897, and lectured in several places organizing suffrage clubs. That same year, vvhilp I was on the Pacific coast, the first woman suffrage convention was held in Meridian.

Mrs. Eleanor Nugent Somerville was elected State president and reelected to that position at the next convention which was conducted at Greenville. On account of ill health, Mrs. Somerville resigned from office early in 1899. I was then vice president and consented to act as president until the next convention met.

This met in April of that year at Clarksdale. Mrs. Hala Hammond Butt was made president. During the seven years from 1899 to 1906, no convention of the Mississippi Woman Suffrage association was held. As an individual.

I called a conference of Southern Woman Suffragists to meet in Memphis, Dec. 19-20, 1906. That body of representative women from the different States of the South made a definite statement of purpose. They said: "Declaring our adherence to the principles of political liberty, guaranteed to the American people by the fundamental principles of our government, we affirm that they should not be linvted to sex. "Believing that public affairs should be guided by the intelligent, we declare for suffrage with an educational qualification, and urge the enfranchisement of all women who can read and write.

"We ask for the ballot as a solution of the race problem. "We ask for the ballot because students of industrial conditions affirm that our lack of direct political power is a factor in the comparatively low wages of the six llion wage-earning women-in our country. We ask for the ballot as the strongest insurance against child labor under conditions destructive to the best development of the ment and women of the future. "We recommend that women petition the Legislatures to grant them presidential suffrage, since SKIN ITCH INSTANT RELIEF Get a four ounce jar of Hebras Itch Ointment for 75 cents, enough for 2 or 3 people, and when properly used destroys all germs of scabies or parasitic itch.

is the Gas July The following article from an old issue of a Yazoo City paper is reprinted for its historical value by request of Miss Belle Kearney of Flora: The history of every movement, which was instituted for the progression of humanity, is fraught with interest. The woman suffrage cause is filled with such tality and far-reaching results that it is well to understand its beginning and subsequent development, especially in one's own State. In March, 1908, Mrs. Harriet B. Kells wrote the following to me: "I am not sure if there was any woman suffrage movement in Mississippi earlier than the publication, in 1888, of the Mississippi White Ribbon by the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, which could not be called a movement.

It simply took the ground that it would speak on and open its columns to reputable public questions. In 1888 we had Mrs. Zerelda Wallace deliver twenty lectures in the twenty chief towns of the State. In May, 1891, the Mississippi Woman's Christian Temperance' Union met in annual convention in Brookhaven, where was discussed, most earnestly, in committee, the advisability of adopting the suffrage department. Out of deference to minority, we refrained from so doing, although it could have been easily carried in the committee and in the convention.

"In the meantime, in 1890, the constitutional convention had met. Its main subject was a just way to settle the question of negro suffrage. The suffrage committee was very large. One of the methods laid before it by us, I do not think officially, but personally, and many men thought with us on the outside, was to enfranchise educated white women, who, being so large a class, would overcome the negro man vote. Much literature was laid upon the desks of the members.

The suffrage committee seriously considered it. I was in daily communication with members of it and with others of the convent'on, so learned from the men who were doing the work. The suffrage committee was long in reporting to the convention; and while it waited, I was repeatedly told that its vote stood one less than a majority for woman suffrage. But the committee prob- For Bad Feeling Due to Constipation Ott rid of constipation by taking Black-Draught as loon as you notice that bowel activity haa tlowed up or you begin to feel sluggish. Thousands prefer Black-Draught for the refreshing relief It has brought them.

Mrs. Ray Mulllns, of Lafe, writes: "My husband and I both take Thedford's Black-Draught and find it splendid for constipation, biliousness, and the dlssgreeable, aching, tired feeling that eomes from this condition." With reference to Syrup of Black-Draught, which this mother gives her children, she says: "They like the taste and It gave such good results."

powers each State to appoint pres ident al electors in such manner as the legislature thereof may direct. "We recommend, further, that legislatures be petitioned to sub mit to the electors constitutional amendments grant ng full suffrage to women." The third annual convention of the Mississippi Woman Suffrage association met at the Edwards House, in Jackson, on Dec. 21, 1906. The follow. ng officers were elected: President, Miss Belle Kearney; vice president, Mrs.

Eleanor N. Somerville; corresponding secretary, Mrs. B. T. Hobbs; treasurer, Mrs.

Lilv Wilkinson Thompson. Resolutions were adopted cor dially endorsing the conference of Southern Women Suffragists, held in Memphis and the substance of their statement of purpose was adopted as our platform. A rec ommendation was made that the next Legislature of Mississippi be petitioned to submit to the electors a constitution amendment grant ing a full suffrage to the women of this State. For months after the convention of 1906, I devoted myself to the cause of woman suf frage; writing leaflets to be sent over the State, and hundreds of letters. All of Match, 1907, was given to lecture and organizing work in Mississippi.

Speaking on sociological subjects in the churches and holding parlor meet ing in homes, where I spoke on the progression of woman and or ganized nine Woman Suffrage clubs; McComb, Clinton, Yazoo City, Columbus, Biloxi, West Point and Vicksburg. Previously to that spring itinerary, I had organized a suffrage club at Flora and one in Jackson. The first of April I left to lecture in other States and in Canada. Two days after my return to Mississippi, Xov. 27, 1907, a conference was held in the home of Mrs.

Lily.W. Thompson, in Jackson, composed of the ex-committee of the Mississippi Woman Suffrage association, Miss Laura M. Clay, of Kentucky, and Miss Kate M. Gordon, of New-Orleans. The conference lasted five days and was most helpful and important.

Much of the winter of 1907-08 was given exclusively by me to suffrage work, sending letters to legislators and to others, trying to enlist their sympathy for the cause of woman's enfranchisement. In January, 1908, it was decided to defer legislative action until some future session, and I made the statement to that effect through the press, as follows: Ever since I was a young girl, there has been a strong desire in my heart to secure the ballot for the women of. Mississippi. When I was elected president of the State Woman Suffrage association, a year ago, I decided to make an effort to have a resolution presented to the present legislature asking for the enfranchisement of the women of our great commonwealth. The plans which I have made since then all led up to this consummation.

I returned from Canada for the purpose of working for woman suffrage legislation. I felt that I had a right to ask much of the people of Mississippi because, for almost nineteen years, I have given my life for humanity, on the lecture platform and in the field of organization, through the Wroman's Christian Temperance Union. Many of those years w-ere devoted to public work in my own dear state, to which I felt that the women of Mississippi, who had striven so earnestly to bring prohibition up to its present high mark, should be allowed at least, to help enforce the prohibition laws. Upon studying the situation at closer range, after my return a few weeks ago, I find that prohibition is the imminent question before the people and that everything else should be held in abeyance for that. Consequently, I announce that neither as an individual, nor -the Woman Suffrage association of Mississippi will mak the slightest effort to secure any form of law from the Mississippi Legislature, looking to the enfranchisement of women The movements of Woman Suffrage and prohibition are absolutely distinct, and only the un thinking have confused them.

It is unfortunate, however, to have a person who is prominently allied with both causes to attempt the leadership of a State organization. For this reason, I shall not stand for re-election to the presidency of the Mississippi Woman Suffrage association when its convention meets the next few weeks. God forbid that I shall injure, by my affiliation, either prohibition or woman suffrage, the two causes that are as close to my heart as colors to a summer sky. Some day the men of Mississippi, true to their heritage of chivalry and their keen sense of justice, will place upon the brow of the womanhood of their State the highest gift of civilization. It was a delight to me to re-organize the NO NEED TO TAKE HARSH LAXATIVES Bitter doses may help constipation but they are often too harsh and always hard to take.

There is a gentler way to restore normal elimination. Rexall Orderlies are the original chocolate phen-olphthalein laxative just as tasty as candy.

Mrs. Eleanor X. Somerville was again elected president. She occupied that position until 1912, when at the in Flora, Mrs. Lily W.

Thompson, who for many years had faithfully served as State superintendent of press work, was chosen president. Dur ng the year that Mrs. Thompson stood at the head of the organization, she arranged to have a splendid float representing Mississippi at the famous woman suffrage parade in Wrashrngton City which attracted such wonderful attention throughout the nation. At the convention which was held in the capitol at Jackson, in 191.5, Mrs. Annie K.

Dent of Yazoo City -was elected president. For the second time in the history of the Mississippi Suffrage asso-c'ation, a resolution was adopted to the effect that the Legislature be requested to submit the question of an amendment to the State constitution fully enfranchising the women of It was presented by Mrs. Dent and Mrs. Thompson recommended.it in her annual address. In January, 1914.

a hearing was given by the Legislature, in joint session to the woman suffrage cause. Addresses were made by Miss Kate M. Gordon of New Orleans, and five Mississippi women: Mrs. Monroe Mc-Clurg, Miss Pauline V. Orr, Mrs.

ly W. Thompson, Mrs. Annie K. Dent, Mrs. Eleanor X.

Somerville and the writer of this. The enthusiasm was marked. The next day the resolution, which had previously been presented in both houses of the Legislature for the submission of the amendment to the voters of Mississippi, was lost in the midst of an intense excitement. The action was not regarded as defoat, but simply as a milestone marking the road to ul-t mate victory. In retrospect we acknowledge, with a sense of reverence and thankfulness, the work that has been done in Mississippi by women for woman suffrage, particularly are -we indebted to those who i-amo first: Mrs.

Harriet B. Kells, the gifted and cultured pioneer in the movement; Mrs. Zerelda Wallace, of the family of General Lew Wallace, of Indiana; Dr. Anna II. Shaw, president of the National Woman Suffrage association, and Mrs.

Carrie Chapman Catt, president of the Internationa! Suffrage Alliance; all of whom have come within the borders of Mississippi to forwardJ by pen and speech the blessed movement for the enfranchisement of its women. We remember with gratitude also the men who have been our loyal brothers in the effort to secure the ballot. The most prominent among these are Maj. R. W.

Millsaps and Mr. R. H. Thompson of Jackson. History will record the fact that it was Mr.

N. A. Mott of Yazoo City who introduced the first resolution ever presented in a house of representatives of Mississippi asking for a constitutional amendment enfranchising the women of this State; and that it was Mr. Hall Sanders of Charleston who was the first to introduce the same measure in the senate.
