Dawson t head of the party is not yet will in Quot to say what he thinks of the Dej vice. The chairman a plans for the future indicate clearly enough that he has no purpose to quit the chairmanship. As much has been prophesied Many times. The work is irksome and it takes a great Deal of Money to carry on the business. The party has had no chairman who chased Money less none who refused More steadfastly to traffic on his position. The state chairman wont lobby and he wont pick up the difference Between ease and Comfort and scuffling for a living As All decent lawyers do. But he Isnit going to tire of managing the party. He broke All records in his first Campaign and if there should be an australian ballot he would be the proper mss to manage the party in the first Campaign conducted under it.

The Battiest of them asked the president How he stood on suffrage. He replied that he could not speak for the party. They urged him to a speak to the and he waited. However or. Dawson and or. Gardner will find themselves in Accord All the leaders Here think. The legislative Council of women workers did their Best to get the Issue before both houses and almost won in the lower body. The Gardner position has been uniformly praised. He never has uttered anything that caused quite the of ment that this did in his Greensboro armistice Day speech.
