WYO)ILING FIRST, COLORADO SEC-.
OND TO GIVE'VOTE TO
WOMEN
Suffrage maps of the United States
now show more than half the nation's
territory to be governed by both its
male and female citizens. Nineteen
states and the Alaskan territory have
enfranchised their women. This gives
to the woman population of the coun-
try 169 out of 531 electorial votes cast
for the president.
Wyoming, which granted the fran-
chise to women in 1869, was the first
state to have equal suffrage. Colorado
followed the example of Wyoming in
1893, and Idaho and Utah in 1893.
Within the last seven years, all the xe-
maining states of the Western group
except New Mexico have allowed full
rights of citizenship to their women.
Progress Slow In Central States
The progress of the movement in
the central and eastern states has not
been so rapid. Kansas, which passed
its suffrage bill in 1912, and New York
in 1917, have been the only states of
these groups to fully enfranchise wom-
en. Illinois, North Dakota, Ohio, Ne-
braska, Rhode Island, and Michigan
have partial suffrage. The women res-
ident in these states vote for presi-
dent. Arkansas allows them to cast
the ballot only at the primaries.
Other States Have Considered Bills
Equal suffrage bills have been con-
sidered in most of the other states,
but so far have been defeated. Indi-
ana women'have met both triumph and
defeat. -For a short time they were
enfranchised, but the law has recently
been repealed as unconstitutional. A
referendum bill which if passed will
give all the privileges of citizenship
to the women of Maine, is now pend-
ing. A like bill will be acted on in
Michigan in about 10 months.

London, Dec. 15.-(Correspondence
of the Associated Press).-Details of
the recently announced flight of a Bri-
ish battle airplane from London to
Constantinople where it bombed the
battleship Goeben, the German head-
quarters and the Turkish war office,
were given at a banquet here the other
day by Handley Page, who described
it as the longest distance military at-
tack on record. The flight of 2,0
miles was made without mishap.
The feat was accomplished by a bi-
plane with two 270 horse-power eng-
ines, carrying two pilots, an engineer
and two mechanics.
"Loading up at Hendon," said Mr.
Page, "the machine, which with spares
and luggage was over six tons in
weight, proceeded to Paris, Lyons,
and, to avoid the Alps, .continued by
way of Marseilles. From Marseilles
the journey was by way of Spezzia to
Pisa, Rome, Naples and Otranto, the
last point over a friendly country.
The next and perhaps the most dif-
ficult stage of the journey, was over
the Albanian Alps to Saloniki, a trip
of 250 miles across mountains varying
from 8,000 to 10,000 feet, with no suit-
able place for landing in case of need.
"From Saloniki the adventurous
party flew to theii base, overhauled
the machine and prepared for a long
distance bombing expedition, to Con-
stantinople, a distance of 320 miles.
"On their attacking trip they set
forth wNith 16 bombs and on arriving
at the Sea of Marmora throttled down
from 2,000 to 1,600 feet, the Golden
.Horn and other points being clearly
in view.
"After a short survey of the lights
of Constantinople, and to make sure
of their objectives, they came down to
800 feet and dropped a salvo of *four
bombs, hoping to hit the Goeben
which was anchored just beneath
them. Unfortunately they missed the
ship, but managed to hit one or two
submarines that were lying alongside
her. They later managed to land four
bombs on the Goeben:".
They were 30 hours in the air on
the flight from London to Constantin-
ople.

"Hans Und Fritz," the comic opera
from the pen of R. Dirts, creator of
the "Katzenjammer Kids" of comic
supplement fame, will be the offering

acts, and it is sponsored by the well
known producer, Gus Hill. Mr. Hill
has given the public such triumphs as
"Bringing Up Father," "Mutt and Jeff,"
and "Happy Hooligan," and other pop-
ular plays. A dozen special songs
and musical numbers, written and
composed especially for this offeritrg,
will be introduced, and the press
agent has promised that twenty pretty
girls will form an important part of
the company which is full of novelty,
action and original features.
"A Night in Honolulu," the dramat-
ic success which was booked to appear
