WASHINGTON, July 31. "Votes for

delegations of suffragists from every
tate In the union who besieged the sen-
ato chamber and bombarded the sena
tors with petitions bearing thousands of
Ignatures, urging consideration of a
woman suffrage constitutional amend
ment. Tho siege of the senate followed a dem
onstration, In the course of which hun
dreds of women paraded from Hyatts
vlllc, Md., through the country roads and
the city streets, down Pennsylvania ave
nue and through tho capltol grounds.
Members of the senato woman suffrage
committee, which has already favorably
reported, the suffrage amendment, met
tho petition bearers and rode to the cap
ltol with them.

Miss Alice Paul, chairman of tho leg
islative committee of the National Amer
ican Woman Suffrage association, offi
cers of the association and the snat-
committee headed the parade. At the
capltol it disbanded and a cloud of femi
ninity fluttered Into the senato wing.
Tho dignified hush of the Imposing mar
ble room Just off the senate chamber
was shattered by the demands of women
from various statos, that their cards be
taken to their senators. The pages wero
busy for the better part of an hour, hur
rying senators from the chamber to meet
their "constituents" armed with petitions.
After tho petitions had been presented
the delegations flocked to the galleries,
where seats had been reserved and tho
woman suffrage supporters on the floor
of the senate took charge of the demon-
tratlon. Senators Owen, Ashurst, Poln.

tho American people will confer on tho
American woman the only weapon by
means of which sho can peacefully do-

Practically every sonator was armed
with a bundle of the petitions, bound with
the yellow ribbon of the suffragists.
Senator Smoot, presenting the Utah pe
titions, attacked militancy In the fight

WASHINGTON, July 31.-After ex
hibiting much concern over the places
which wolld bo assigned to prospective
exhibitors by the management of the
ranama-Paclflc exposition, the British
government finally has declined to par
ticipate. The long delay in action on tha
invitation to participate In tho exposition
extended a year ago has been the causa
of deep concern to tho management of
the exposition, particularly as formidable
opposition had likewise developed in
Germany, whero certain of tho great
trade associations, such as thoso repre
senting tho steel and iron manufacturers
had formally requested the German gov
ernment to decline the Invitation.
In an unofficial way It Is said that
dlssatlsfoctlon on the part of the groat
commercial nations will be with certain
features of tho pending tariff bill, which
they felt boro hardly on their trade was
the reason for the attitude of covert
hostility toward the San Francisco fair.
But as tho senate finance committee has
amended the tariff bill in a manner
thought to mako It unobjectionable to
thos nations. It was fully expected that
they would seo their way clear to accept

In the case of Great Britain, however,
through the original cablegram of Am
bassador Page giving notlco of tho
declination has now been supplemented by
a mall report dealing with tho subject
more fully, It is not yet positively known
what basis of objection now remains. It
la thought by officials, however, that
while the reason assigned by the British
government is a belief that there have
been too many such International expoel.
tlons In recent years, the underlying
objection is based on the view of in
congruity of British participation In an
event designed to celebrate the opening
of tho Panama canal, while there is a
dispute as to Its free use.
