and Mrs. D. C. John, president of the

woman suffrage meetings ever held in

association building yesterday.

hurst's book, "The Suffragette," Mrs.
Covell launched into a general suffrage
talk. She declared that the suffragettes
who stuck pins Into policemen and lashed
them with dog whips In the suffrage war
on I'arllament were martyrs to their
cause and pointed the finger of reproach
at American women who say they are
ashamed of their British sisters.
"You never hear men say that they are
ashamed of their sex, no matter what
they do," said Mrs. Covell. "I hate to
hear women say that men will lose their
chivalry toward women when women
have the vote. 1 would prefer to have
Justice 'and let men keep on their hats."
Mrs. John gave the stand of the Wom
an's Christian Temperance union on
, "With the Woman's Christian Temper
ance union woman suffrage is simply a
means to an end. Tiie end is the abolition
of the liquor traffic," said Mrs. John.

of the Women." the British woman suf
frage song. The motion to ask financial
aid of business men who pledged the
guaranty fund for the Tankhurst lecture
in Omaha was voted down. Mrs. Covell

ship committee and Mrs. Charles I. Voll
mer, chairman of the newly instituted
public health committee.
