Objects to "Suffragette."
"It Is tlmr," observes a writer In the
London Chi oniric-, "that the term suf
fraRotto was abandoned, as the suffra
gist movement has taken Its serious
place In politics. The word Is not
worth preserving. It Is used as a term
of reproach and does not enrich the
lanRUURe. Women do not want the
veto In order to maintain n distinction,
but In order to obliterate It. They
want to be suffraRlsts und citizens just
in men are. Therefore, wo havo no
place for such a mongrel word as
'suffragette' In our political vocabu
lary. The latest addition to political
terminology is more useful. It is
'platforniula.' It was invented by
John M. Itobertann, M. P., and Is
