Equal Suffrage Campaign
The Women's Suffrage Club, of Corydon, has started the movement of organizing a campaign in Wayne county to advance the cause of equal suffrage and are visiting the towns of the county accompanied by speakers and a band, where meetings are held and the preliminary steps taken to organize clubs in every town and precinct in the county. They will visit Lineville tomorrow, Friday evening, arriving here about 7 o'clock in the evening, and if the weather proves suitable the meeting will be held in the Public Square Park. C. W. Steele and other speakers will address the meeting in the cause of equal suffrage. The party will come in autos and the meeting is expected to be a very interesting one and all should attend it to greet the visitors and learn something of the great and important subject. Woman's suffrage and Prohibition are going hand in hand and it is not difficult now to see that both are destined to win.
