( Ru$Sia Will Not Quit Unless She coachesi is MarvecL U. S. Russia will not quit unless she is starved into submission. This is the opinion of Ralph Dawson, who for two years has represented Gaston, Willian & Wifcmore, Inc., of No. 120 Broadway, in Petrograd and other Russian cities. He left Russia April 24 "America is needlessly apprehensive," said Mr. Dawson yesterday. "Reports of chaotic conditions have been grossly exaggerated. The Romanoff party is dead and no tears were shed at its passing. The freedom of Russia is assured and all she needs to continue a successful warfare against Germany are supplies, amnuition and railway transportation to the battle lines. "When you consider that the Russian is heroic and devoted enough to fight Germany, armed only with religious images, sticks and stones; when you recall that he has done this three years on cabbage soup, black bread and tea, you must conclude he is not a quitter. NInteen states of the Union now give women a right to vote for President of the United States. North Dakota led the whole procession of 1917 suffrage victories the first state into the suffrage fold In the National American "Woman Suffrage Association's drive for presidential suffrage. Ohio was the first of the newly victorious states east of .the Mississippi to come into her own, and Indiana Is the first state to let women vote upon their own enfranchisement though the women, of Wyoming territory did this In 1890. On March 6, Governor Brough of Arkansas signed a hill giving women a new and effective form of suffrage, the right to vote in primary elections, Arkansas helng the first state to pass this measure. Suffrage a War Measure. Woman suffrage has hecome a war measure in England, Canada, Russia, and France.

Nebraska's 77,520 square miles of territory, has raised the total area in which women may vote side by side "with men to a fraction more than half of continental United States. Eleven of the fifteen biggest states in the Union are now tinder the suffrage flag. The total number of womenof voting age to whom complete, or near complete, suffrage has been granted, is now 8,557,308; 48 per cent, of this number has been gained since the first of January, 1917. The total number of electoral college votes, which women- - may parof ticipate in choosing at the next presidential eleotion is a total of 531. 172--out Besides the signal successes In these seven states. North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana, Arkansas, Rhode Island, Michigan, and Nehraska, there have heen legislative victories of mora or less Importance In eleven other states since January. Bills for full suffrage by amendments to their state constitutions have passed the 1917 legislatures of New York, Maine, South Dakota, Iowa, and Michigan. In. New York and Maine, the enfranchisement of women will he voted on this year. In South Dakota, and Michigan it will he voted on in 1918. FLAQ WHERE THE SUFFRAGE Ok-lahoOk-lftio- FLOATS To recapitulate, the suffrage causo has this year annexed 338,314 square mlle3 of territory. Up to the end of 1916, suffrage extended over 1,205,-32- 9 square miles, or 39 per cent of continental United States, not including Alaska. On April 22nd of this year, the suffrage flag floated over 1,543,643 square miles, or 50.9 per cent Including Alaska, whero women have suffrage on the same terms as men, 2,134527 square miles, or 57 per cent of the total (possessions of the United States, except the newly acquired Virgin Islands, are now under the banner of freedom.

EVERYTHING IN FORTHE WAR? Bi. pbs-Biblo'- on quasl-luxur- from the German press printed in this country grossly misrepresent the attitude of the United States in this war. They seek to convey the im pression that this is Mr. Wilson's war, and not a war of the United States. While these extracts do not absolutely declare that the people of the United States are against the war, they seek to create that impression upon German readers. They declare that the $2,000,000,000 bond issue has been a failure, that the people will pot subscribe for these bonds because they do not propose to aid the government in the war. These bonds have been oversubscribed, and the subscriptions have come from all classes of the population. These extracts go on to say that conscription has been a complete failure. We know very well that Germans in this country did all they could to make it a failure and that they sent all kinds of literature throughout the country and endeavored to work up feeling against the government. In spite of all these efforts, which completely failed, the registration was a perfect success and nearly, if not quite 10,000,000 young men registered. The third of these extracts from German newspapers are to the effect that the United States has fallen down in all of its preparedness plans for war. None of the plans of the government in this respect have failed. The navy is ready for action. An army of 100,000 trained soldiers is equipped and ready for France. The National Guard of nearly 500,000 is fully equipped and ready for almost immediate service, and so successful have been the plans of preparation upon the part of the government that by next spring there will be 1,500,000 trained soldiers ready for any emergency that may arise. In addition to this the United States is building ships for commerce in this .country faster than they can be sunk by German submarines. Our government; has taken over more German ships interned in our ports than the German submarines have suck in the last two months. mis-statement Extracts Dizzy Mrs. G.

If the citizen of Teutonic blood is loyal to .our country, though he grieve at the necessity for war with his fatherland, his burden is heavy enough without the added knowledge or suspicion that he is viewed with antagonism and distrust. There are some who are unquestionably traitors to the land of their adoption, but they will soon come to their just end. Time will efface them. But their acts should not prejudice in our minds those who are loyal and who are stanchly supporting the government, even though it be with hearts saddened by re- grets.

To do so would be to defeat the very aims in view in the struggle before us.

"A place we're seeking in the sun, and with our sword and bomb and gun, we'll rule the planet ere we're done;" the boast was made in Germany.

Fe kicked up war, and for long years he bathed the world in blood and tears, and startled all adjoining spheres, with weapons made in Germany. He took on enemies each day, and hailed them gladly in the fray, and shot them up with bales of hay, and sauerkraut made in Germany. Great Brit-iaItaly and France, and Russiathese he saw advance, and held them level with his lance, and bludgeon made in Germany. And minor countries, group by group, went at the kaiser with a whoop; he handed each a bowl of soup, which broth was made in Germany.
