Alice Paul is back in Washington, D.C., following a meeting with Republican Presidential nominee Charles Evans Hughes at the Hotel Astor in New York City.
Governor James Cox of Ohio, who officially became the Democratic nominee for President last night, today sent a telegram to the head of the Democratic State Committee of Louisiana urging reconsideration of that State’s recent rejection of the Susan B. Anthony Amendment.
In keeping with the tradition of the “Silent Sentinels” who picketed President Wilson, there will be no heckling. As before, the messages of the National Woman’s Party will be made quite clear by being written on large, colorful banners.
“We are not content with words on suffrage which are not backed by party pressure. We are protesting against the continued disenfranchisement of women, for which the Republican Party has now become responsible.”
Alice Paul is in full fighting mode today.
