Omaha Stiffragists' Luncheon.
No organization of the Congret
iional Union for woman suffrage was
effected Wednesday afternoon, al
though a conference of over 150 wo
men listened to more than three hours
of suffrage talks. Another attempt to
organize wilt be marie this morning at
10 o'clock at the Footenelle. Miss
Margaret Whittemore, Congressional
Union organizer, who was to leave
with Miss Beulah Amidon, another
organizer, lat night, postponed her
departure until a local set of officers
shall be chosen.
Forty-six women of the number
present signed the membership cards
to the Congressional Union at 25
cents for a life membership. Among
them were Meidames E. M. Fairfield,
Halleck Rose, Frank H. Myers,
Stephen Davies, S. A. Capen, h A.

women. When Mils Whittemore
completed reading the constitution of
the Congressional Union for adoption
a half dozen women 'voted a feeble
acceptance. There were not enough
women to hold an election, so this
part of the conference was adjourned
until this morning.
Mrs. J. H. Domont was the only
one who pressed the claims of the
National Woman Suffrage association
policies at the C U. conference.
Other suffragists actively allied with
the national society did not attend the
In explaining why Congressional
Unionists picket the Whita House,
Miss Whittemore asserted it was not
because they liked to. It il an ex
cellent way to get publicity, that was
the reason, she said.
Mayor Dahlman sat by and listened
while Miss Amidon told how Califor
nia women had cut down the demo
cratic majority in the last election
because the party in power had re
fused to do anything for suffrage.
Several weeks ago Mayor Dahlman
announced he had been converted to
suffrage because western women had
shown political sagacity in voting the
