WHAT WOMAN SUFFERAGE HAS DONE IN COLORADO. Welsh Liberals are strong on the Woman Suffrage Question, and Glamorganshire men and women will, therefore, take exceptional in- terest in the review which Colorado is able to make of the effects of the Enfranchisement of Women there. Well, then, the Legislature of Colorado recently pass<*l the following resolu- tion-Equal suffrage has been in operatmn m Colorado for five years, during which time women have exercised the privilege as generally as men with the result that better candidates have been selected for office, methods of octions have been purified, the character of legislation improved, civic intelligence 1T1C^ » v_ womahhood developed to greater J political responsibility." Now, as a wn,mpn been able to judge, the influence order of Colorado has been on the side of > justice, and morality, Mr Elland ,rit.es. in te September number of "Lippincot, nor i,3 their sweet, gentle, loving nature or tender sympathy of heart going to seed by the additional oppor- tunity afforded them of using their brains. These women are not crushing all the virility out of men, as it has been feared they would do, nor are the bustling ,agressive Amazons ousting husbands and brothers out of positions whether they are obliged to cam a living or not. Nei- ther do they constantly proclaim their independ- ence with wild gesticulations and in vociferous tones, but, on the contrary, their political pri- vilege's have added a new glory to feminine oharacter.

A distinguished lawyer ot Denver, when interviewed on the subject of woman suffrage, said that he had been indiffer- ent to woman suffrage before it was granted, but had since been thoroughly converted by ¡ what he had seen of the results, and that many other men had had the same experience. He said that public gambling was now entirely sup- pressed in Denver for the first time, that the I Sunday closing law for saloons was better en- forced, that elections were quieter, election frauds were fewer, and the city government of Denver greatly improved through the influence of women's votes. In five years equal suffrage raised the a?e of protection for girls to eighteen years, equalised the laws of inheritance between husband and wife, made fathers and mothers equal guardians of their children, and more than quadrupled the number of no-licence towns in the State.
