LONDON, April 29. The ambassadorial

It Is understood the conference adheres
to Its decision that Montenegro must
evacuate Scutari, but Is Indisposed to
acquiesce In Austria's demand that the
powers undertake to compel evacuation
by arms. No demand has been formally
sent to the Cettlnje government and
probably nothing will be done In this re
spect until after the next meeting of the
conference Monday, when Sir Edward
Gray, the British foreign minister, who
has been absent from London this week,
will preside over tho deliberations.

Mrs. La Follette argued that womet
were as vitally Interested' In tariff legis
lation as the men and declared that every
Important piece of legislation before con
gress In the last twenty-five years hai1
affected women equally.
"If the tariff In- any way affects thi
price we pay for what we cat and wear;
If the combinations have anything to du
with the high cost of living, women
should understand about It," said Mrs
La Follette. "If the price of the great
staples, like beef, sugar, oil, cotton anu
woolens, are fixed by monopoly: If the
tariff affects the coat of children's food
and clothes, the only radical way to right
the wrong Is through national legisla
tion. "Women do the buying. Ninety pel
cent of HO.000,000.000, paid out annually In
tho United States for food, clothing, shel
ter. Is spent by women."
Mrs. La Follette said she was not oik
of those who believed that equal suffrage
would bring about any Immediate radical
changes, and declared that the real Issue
In the struggle was whether It was In the
Interest of home and society, which she
maintained It was.
Miss Helen Varrlck Boswell argued that
a federal law would be the quickest and
surest way to procure equal suffrage,
and Mrs. William Kent sold that women
suffrage had worked welfare In Cali
fornia. Dr, Anna Sliutv Closes.
Dr. Shaw made the concluding argu
ment "Wo are not afraid of the body of"
ladles who are going up and down the
land opposing suffrage," said she. "They
are Just enough In number so that by
holding out their skirts they can make n
screen for the men operating dens ol
vice and iniquity and prostitution to hide
behind. In every state where women now
vote, suffrage was opposed by the forces
of evil, for they know that we propose
to make this country a place of safety
where parents can see their daughters
go to school In the morning and feel that
they will return, ond where a man need
not fear to send his little girl ' on an
errand through city streets.
"We will come again and again and
again. Our children will come and our
grandchildren will come until this Is a
