THE SUFFRAGE CLUB --
The Equal Suffrage Club of Hanford held their 2nd meeting at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church Friday afternoon. Mrs. Emma FOX presided and Mrs. John WORSWICK acted as Secretary. There were about 20 lady members of the club present and 7 or 8 men. The meeting was devoted to papers on questions of interest to the suffrage cause and several interesting discussions took place. "Women in Public Work" was the subject of an essay by Mrs. C.M. COE, and a paper on "Does the Wife and Mother Need the Ballot?" was read by Mrs. DOPKINS. Rev. N. SCHULTZ addressed the club on the comparative conditions of women in this and other countries. The speaker made a comparison very favorable to the women of the United States. The club will meet again in 2 weeks.
