MAY COME OUT FOB HUGHES
Colordao Springs, Colo., Aug. II
Woman party leaders, at the open
ing session ot a three-day national
conference here today considered in
formally the election . .licy of the
party during the forthcoming cam
paign and outlined a program of ac
tivity to be pursued in the twelve
equal suffrage states.
Leaders tonight were uncertain of
the form which the Woman's party
announcement of policy would 1 e offi
cially made. Certain women, prom
inent in the councils of the organiza
tion, favored resolutions definitely
withdrawing the supportof the party
from the democratic administration,
without formal endorsement of other
presidential candidates or parties.
Other leaders suggested formal en
dorsement of the parties which had
endorsed the equal suffrage move
ment, while another element urged
the endorsement of Charles E.
Hughes, the republican nominee, as
the best means of securing the en
actments of the federal suffrage
Will Wait Until Today.
National leaders aserted that the
party would await action of President
Wilson, or congress, "with an open
mind until late tomorrow, when form
al action would be taken in executive
session, following which a public an
nouncement of policy would be made
at a public masc meeting.
Few leaders expressed hope that
the administration would accord the
desired assurance of support for na
tional woman's suffrage.

as she rose, "that it is the most cold

I were free to tell him what sort of

Langham," said a voice behind them,
and Hope stood in the doorway.
Both girls screamed.

he said sternly. "I thank God I have
learned the truth in time."
"Eavesdropper," she sneered.
"I may be an eavesdropper," he an
