"Suffrage Work is Active," Oregonian, August 02, 1912, 12.
SUFFRAGE WORK IS ACTIVE
Success from Business District Related—- Colored Women Help
Continued activity with regard to suffrage work at the beaches was the predominant feature of the regular meeting of the state central campaign committee, held yesterday at headquarters in the Selling building, and presided over by Robert A. Miller.
Mrs. F. W. Cotterill related success in her work in the business districts and reports were also heard from the organizations. Afterwards a letter, which had been received by the committee from Ohio, was read. In it the writer asked for further information with regard to the “stunning suffrage float,” some details of which she had read in The Oregonian, sent to her by friends.
Announcement was also made that the Colored Women’s Equal Suffrage League had doubled its membership and that the editor of their paper, the Advocate, favored the movement.
Mrs. Clara B. Colby, who arrived yesterday, announced that she had organized societies at Warrenton and Seaside. She leaves today for Benton County, holding a meeting at Corvallis tomorrow night. Her return was balanced by the departure of Mrs. Sara Ehrgott for Salem, which is to be made her headquarters and where several meetings are to be held. By Monday she hopes to have reported that further associations have been formed.
The College Equal Suffrage League will hold a large general meeting Tuesday, at which all members are earnestly asked to be present, because a resume of the month’s work is to be given and plans for future efforts outlined.
