Leaders Denounce Attempt to
Defeat Amendment in West
Virginia by Reseating. Sen
ator Who Left State.
ASSERTS ALICE PAUL
Decisive Action Expected To
day on Arrival of Senator
Bloch, Whose Affirmative
Vote May Break the Tie.
lilos- Tribune Omaha Bee I.itrd Wire.
Washington, March 9.. Charges
of corruption were made tonight by
leaders of tile National Woman's
party and Frank Barrow, repre
sentative of thc national republican
senatorial committee, against the
forces opposing suffrage in the
, West Virginia legislature.
While State Senator Block has
been speeded, across the country
from California, to save the day for
ratification, 'opponents of the
amendment have brought to life a
member of the legislature, Senator
Archibald Montgomery, who moved
frm West Virginia to Illinois some
time ago and has not been conV
sidered a member of the legislature.
If Mr. Montgomery is"" seated and
votes against suffrage, it will con
tinue to, tie the vote which is
tantamount to the defeat of the suf
frage . amendment in West Virginia
and perhaps its final defeat in the
nation. ? , ' , ,
"Our workers have never en
countered," Alike Paul, chairman of
the national woman s party, stated
, tonight, 'tactics so corrupt or such
attempts' as the buying of votes as
. are a matter of common report to-
. day in the halte of the West Virginia
, legislature. The liquor and other
interests opposed to suffrage, defeat
ed in New Jerseyf " are making
another desperate stand in West Vir
ginia. The last minute return of
' Mr. Montgomery is the final hope
for defeating ratification."
' ' Suffragists Win Victory. '
Charleston, W. Va., March 9.-
Forces favoring ratification of the
federal suffrage amendment in the
West Virginia legislature won an
other victory in the senate Tuesday
afternoon in their effort tq keep that
body jo -session until Senator Jesse
, A. Bloch can arrive in Charleston.
, It is expected he will reach here
early Wednesday and cast the de
i cidiug vote in the senate at its ses
sion Wednesday afternoon.
Th fight" in thes senate centered
upon the right of Senator A. R.
Montgomery to vote; He had come
from nis home in Illinois in an ef
fort to break the deadlock ex
isting between pro and anti-suffrage
forces, and bring about a final ad
journment of the senate before Sen
ator Bloch could arrive. Suffrage
forces, by the vote of Senator Burr,
who had been listed as an anti.
suffragist, succeeded in preventing
Senator Montgomery , from voting
and brought about temporary ad
journment, i ' . '
Before adjournment Governor
Cornwall was asked to provide the
senate with , a copy of the letter
which it is said Senator Montgom
ery wrote to him when .he moved
from;West Virginia to Illinois rela
tive to his resignation. '
No word has been received Ot
Senator Bloch since he left Chicago

to this end; (third), that states which
have been created or enlarged as a
result of the war should immediately
re-establish full and friendly co
operation and arrangement for un
restricted interchange of commodi
ties in' order that the essential unity
of European economic life may not
be impaired by the 'erection of
artificial economic barriers. ,

attention to the -execution of all
measures which will contribute to
