Equal Suffrage Fully Indorsed by State Grange

Roseburg, Or., May 18—The closing hours of the meeting of the State Grange were devoted to a discussion of road measures and taxation…Woman suffrage came in for a full share of attention and the following resolution was passed without opposition:
Equal Suffrage Indorsement
“Whereas, The social relations of the family and state have from the beginning of the history of the human race shown man and woman, though of different spheres of activity and frequently of different viewpoints, to be essentially necessary in the social, economical and intellectual welfare of the home, the community and this state.
“Whereas, The evidence of examples shown by trial in other states proves that women are not only entitled to participate in the practical duties of the state but that they have shown themselves to exhibit an interest and judgment the equal of their enfranchised brothers.
“Therefore, Be it Resolved, that the Oregon State Grange Association goes on record as favoring the granting of suffrage to the women of the state of Oregon and commend the same to the consideration of all those persons who now exercise the rights of citizenship.”

Equal Suffrage Workers Prepare For Active Campaign.

At a meeting of the executive board of the State Equal Suffrage Association, held Monday at headquarters, in the Selling building, a letter was read from Mrs. Abigail Scott Duniway in which she asked for the appointment of Mrs. Henry Waldo Coe as temporary president until such time as she should be able to carry on the duties of the office.  It was also decided that arrangements should be made for a union meeting of delegates from all allied organizations in the state, to be held here in June.

Mrs. Coe, whose appointment was made unanimously, said yesterday that Mrs. Duniway’s health is improving now, and “she is so anxious to see this work carried on that we all feel the best way to maintain the improvement in her health is to work for the cause as hard as we possibley can. If she sees that we are making headway she can have no reason to worry, and will soon be back again at the head of affairs.”

The council of negro women held an enthusiastic meeting under the auspices of the association at the African Methodist Church, 68 Tenth street North Monday afternoon. Mrs. Henry Waldo Coe introduced Mrs. C. B. Woodruff, of Willamette Heights, as the principal speaker. After an interesting address it was decided to form an allied association for negro women who are members of any of the five churches, with the object of spreading equal suffrage ideas among those of the race.
