"Woman suffrage is such a mat
ter of fact thing in Colorado now
that no one thinks of it any more.
No one thinks of It any more than
he stops to thrnk of his stomach. It
Is so thoroughly a part of the system
of the state." Such were the re
marks made by Governor George A.
Carlson of Colorado, when talking
with newspaper men at the Fonta
nels hotel yesterday.
"We have had suffrage since 1893.
No party would think of inserting in
its platform nowadays a plank op
posed to woman suffrage.
"The women have no, gone in for office.
They are not campaigners. But they
vote In about the same proportion as
men. The substantial women are the vot
ing women. The ultras or extremists do
not vote. The extremely roor snd the
extremely rich do not vote much. Also
the woman who never had time to de
vote to her home Is not taking time to
vote either. As far as woman suffrage
taking woman's time is concerned, that i
is all ridiculous, for it takes abyit as
much time to vote as it does to buy 15
cents' worth of beefsteak. And, as I have
said before, the women are not cam
paigners. Influence for Rood.
"On the whole, the influence has been
for good. Campaigning is cleaner now.
A man does not tell smutty stories, for
Instance, in his campaign to illustrate a
"The man with a bad moral record can
not get into office under woman suffrsge
as well as ho could before. Ordinarily
men will forgive a man who has a record
of several shady scrapes, nut a woman
will not. She cannot fcrglve those things,
and that tendency is telling In the poli
tics of the state."
Governor Carlson said that prohibition,
which went Into effect January 1 this
year, is actually being enforced, and
with exrelient result.
As evidence "of the good results of
prohibition, Oovernor Carlson stated that
2,600 new savings accounts were opened
In Denver during the month of January.
There were 1.01S arrests for all causes
in Denver in January, 1918. and only 868

the fact that 108,000,000 pounds of butter

DIES IN COUNCIL BLUFFS
IewU Franklin Whitehead died of heart
failure at his home, T10 Ifouth Seventh
street, Council Bluffs, at 7 o'clock Thurs
day morning. He was born March 19.
1M9. at Oakland, IJvlngston county. New
York. In 1871 he entered the Methodist
ministry at Columbus, Neb., in which
lie remained until failing health caused
him to retire. .ie engaged in business In
Fairmont and Harvard, Neb., and came
to Council Bluffs In U84.
He leaves a wife and one son, Lewis M
Whltehead, well known Omaha railroad
"Yes. He said that he had heard that
there wero a good many rumors about
Mary's past, and that of course no
actress could expect to have any reputa
tion, as everybody knew whst road com
panies, were. At that 1 got So mad I
fairly flew at hltn. but he brushed me
aside and went up and grabbed Mary's
hands, saving, '1 at least care nothlns
about co.Mp. Knowing Miss Fage, I
have repeatedly offered to marry her sni
now now 1 ask again. Mary, you can
kill thla slander in a minute by marry
ing me!' That wised me to his gamo all
right, but before I could tell her, she
lisd dragged her hands away from him
with a scream and backed against the
wall, staring at tis as lf-ns If she was
eraay. I railed out 'Mary! Mary!' but
el e didn't seem tohear me. he just kept
staring at Mr. Pollock."
"Was he much excited?" snapped
"Yes. but he was half drunk, too.
He'd been drinking a lot all day, and It
showed plainly on him. It was that. I
guess, that made him act like a fool
and try to catch her in his arms, cry
ing thnt there was nothing ahead of her
but disgrace and disaster unless she
"Did she reply?"
Amy shuddered and her voice was a
long time In coming, as If the horror of
something bad engulfed her in mute
ness; but at last, her eyes resting on
Mary as If she had to re-assure herself
that she was actually there, she said:
"No she didn't answer, fihe struck
at him twice then she screamed and
ran out end across the street to the
railroad. We we followed as quickly
as we could, and then " ahe choked,
and her hand went waverlngly to her
throat, as If the words would not come
"and then we saw the man waving
his flag and knew the the train from
New York was coming in. I think I
went craiy myself for a minute. I
screamed and screamed and I heard
Follock screaming too. and e ran like
mad but we couldn't catch her-only-thank
t!od-the man with the danger
flag saw her and stopped her Just In
"Old she fight against cap'.ure?"
"No. .he Just fnlnled dead off In his
arms, and when we got 1 1 her, he hail
carried her over and laid her on tha plat
form. It was then 1 s-iw Mr. I.angdon
He hsd Just gotten off the trMln. and
when he saw the crowd and Mary 1 Ing
there, he tinned white as a sheet and
came running over. Hut I told hltn that
she had only fainted and he'd better carry
her over to the hotel, fly that time we'd
collected a crowd as hlg as If the circus
had come to town, snd when we crossed
the street I could see Psve Tollock gloom
ing to himself on the edge of the rabble,
looking like s thunder-cloud, but not dar
ing to Interfere."
"Was Miss Page conscious when you
reached the hotel?"
"No. Hut after she had been laid en
the eofa in the parlor and the landlady
had bathed her forehead a while she
opened her eyes snd smiled at us. and
the old womsn, who wss a good soul at
heart, drove us all out, saving that Maty
"Was Mr. Tollock In the hotel at that
"Yes. He was at the parlor door, hut
when he came out be kind of edged away
and stood scowling at us. Then I told
Mr. 1-flngdon that I believed he hsd been
spreading slnnder . against Mat y art
through the town and IihiI driven her
half ltwmno sn thnt she had attempted to
end It all by flinging herself In front of
the train. Mr. I.nngdon started to tell
me something then, but before he could
get a word out the landlady came to the
parlor door and said Mary wanted to see
me. Mr. Itngdon went In with me.
When Mary saw him. she Just gave one
little cry and came running to him like a
kid that's been scsred in the durk and
sees Its mother coming with a lamp. But
when she saw Mr. Follock pushing his
way In with some of the others, she
turned kind of white ngatn, and Mr.
I-angdon, turning to see whst had stsr
tled her, got a glimpse of him. At that
ho suddenly pulled a bunch of papers out
of his pocket, and marching up to Mr.
Pollock, said, loud enough for nil of ua
to hear: "Through certain Investigations
which I mode In New York, David Pol
lock, I have dlncovered that you are the
biggest scoundrel unhung! 1 have actual
proof that you backed "A Woman's
Pledge" company, and allowed it to
strand In order to leave Mary Page pen
niless and alone In a strange town; and
what Is more, curse you, I believe you
yourself spread the lies that have been
told about her!"
"Did Mr. Pollock deny these accusa
tions?'' tTo Ho Continued Tomorrow.)

SMITH ESTATE MUST PAY
COUNTY INHERITANCE TAX
County Judge Crawford has decided
that the estate of the lute Framls Smith
of New York City Is not relieved by the
common law doctrine of Joint tenancy
from paying Inheritance tax to Douglas
county on Jl.ono.Oflo worth of property.
Francis Smith and his brother. George
Warren Smith, had provided by a Joint
tenancy agreement that the entire estate
of both of them should belong to the sur
vivor of the pair. It was Judge Craw
ford's decision that the agreement was in
effect a will. It is potsible that the In
heritance tax will amount to 110,000.
REV. S. T. TYNER TALKS
TO OMAHA UNI STUDENTS
Rev. 8. T. Tyner, former pastor of the
r't. Andrew s Episcopalian church of
Omaha and now connected with the t.
Luke's church of Minneapolis, addressed
the student body of the University of
Omaha on "Perseverance" yesterday. The
pastor urged the students to hang onto
the thing they were trying to do, no mat
ter what odds they were battling against.
"You cannot win unless you have a strong
desire to do so and to get that dsir3
you must hang on" Tyner was at one
time a professor In the pre) aratory de
pui'lintiit of the Llilvt-rsity of Omaha.
"If ever a town was disgraced by
Its depots, It is Omaha." said E. V.
Farrlsh, manager of the bureau of
publicity. Commercial club, in com
menting on the need of a new union
station in Omaha.
"The first thing you do when you
come into Omaha with strangers or
visitors is to apologize to them for
our railway stations.
"Look at that Burlington station.
It hasn't so much as an elevator In
It. They make every one climb those
long winding stairs; and as a matter
ot fact it takes a thoroughly able
bodied man or woman to get up
there at all without help.
"There is only one way to get a union
station. That is for the busines men to
get together in their demand long
enough to make them give us the same
aocommodations they have given Kansas
City and Denver. Why should the rail
roads go to Kansas City and build a
depot that cost so many millions and
leave us the way they have? Why should
they go, as they did at Penver, and re
model the depot there at a large cost,
when Omaha Is of more importance to
them both as a freight snd as a passen
"Why, they actually have better sta
tions at Cgd-n and Salt bake than they
have in Omaha."
Dae to Omaha.
C. F. Harrison. President of the Omaha
Real Estate Exchange The rallroarls owe
It to us to give us a good union station
now, in the light of business here, and
especially considering all the favors thty
have had at the hands of the public. We
gave them their right-of-way and a lot of
lands and other concessions. They owe
it to us now to give us a depot.
J. D. Weaver, Secretary of Ak-8ar-Bnn
Yes, if there Is any town In the United
States today that is in need of a new
Union depot. I should say that town la
Omaha, They talk of a subway between
the two depots, but that idea is ridicu
lous. Ed M. Slater, Vice President of the
Omaha Real Estate Exchange We've got
to have a real depot this time In Omaha.
There is no reason for the Burlington
holding out any longer. This Idea of hav
ing a dinky station here and another
one ever there is not modern.
