Hannah j. Bailey mrs l. A Stevens was called to the chair during its delivery. Mrs. Bail eyes address. Mrs. Bailey first referred to the recent history of the movement in Maine and the close contest at the last legislature when the lower Board which represents the people voted for woman suffrage but it was Defeated in Tho Senate which does not represent the people by the selfish votes of four men who Are elected Fly men and who doubtless feared that they could not be elected if women Oouida vote As they certainly would be. Mrs. Bailey de Larod that there Are More Good women than Good men and that there Are More Good women than bad women and that this movement by women to protect their Homes from the rum shops by votes is the most serious danger that the rum shops have. She said that next year she intended to make a Long journey in Palestine and the East and said that a now president must he elected in her place. Mrs. Bailey quoted from Many publications to Snow Tho remarkable Progress of the woman suffrage movement in the Western states and in Australia and eng land. The British women Christian Temperance Union numbering 100,600 women has declared in favor of woman suffrage. Twenty two state Legislatures have taken action on the suffrage ques Tion during the past year. Colorado has decided Iii favor of it and now has women legislators As Well As men. The num Ber of women in the United states now engaged in lucrative employment is 2, 747,157, yet it is still considered no crime representation. Mrs. Bailey declared that it is not True that fallen Aud depraved women will vote the wrong Way. Where it has been tried in England the women of the lowest classes besotted with vice and drink nearly always voted for the Temperance Sauee because they knew they were Vot ing against their own worst enemy. When asked by lady h enry Somerset How she would vote one of the fallen women said i will vote against those med who make devils of us women. Mrs. Bailey declared that it is a crime against civilization and a disgrace to humanity that the Burden of the social evil should fall the heaviest upon worn in. The first slip of a woman makes her a permanent criminal while a Man goes Scott free and is regarded As simply weak or foolish. All the or. Parkhurst of the land cannot suppress the social evils As Long As this great injustice to woman exists. In you Lusion mrs. Bailey said that she was persuaded that the cause of woman suffrage was the most important of All reforms movements and once gained would be More potent in All other reforms than anything else.

Prescript by White Louse Cul Vert in question was covered with planks about two feet in length Laid Lengthwise of the Road and the Plain tiffs horse broke through the Plank in the horse path Between the wheel uts. It appeared that this Plank was so de payed that a piece eight or nine inches Long was broken out of the Middle of it by the horses foot leaving the two ends still attached to the stringers but at the time of the injury it was covered with Earth to the depth of to inches the plaintiff failed to prove that the municipal of fliers or Highway surveyors of the town had Twenty four hours actual notice of the defeat which caused the injury. The statement to the select men that there a snot a Safe Culvert on the Road when the Accident happened with out special mention of the Culvert in question was not sufficiently definite and specific. Neither can the state meet to the Highway Surveyor that All the Oul verts were in bad condition and needed repair be deemed actual notice of the identical defeat which was the canuso of 1 h n Nurmi re on f the words actual notice in the Sta tute signify something More than an Opportunity to acquire notice by the exercise of due care and Diligence. Evi Dence that a Highway Surveyor negligently disregarded a Genearl compliant that All the culverts in his District were in a bad condition has no tendency to prove that he had actual notice of a particular defect in Ono of them. The facts and in a Given Case May justify the conclusion that he must have had actual notice unless grossly inattentive to i hut proof of Gross inattention is no j proof of Acutain notice.
