“George W. McCune representing the 14th Ward as alderman , is taken into
custody after creating a scene at the corner of 5th and Federal. Shortly
thereafter Captain Thomas P. Comesky orders his release pending arraignment in
police court. McCune fails to show for the arraignment and Magistrate Abbott Jones
orders his arrest.
Mrs L.P. Allen, is the president of the Washington County women's
suffragette,Political Equality Club, meeting at the Valley Falls Methodist church. Mrs
Allen is sure women will get the right to vote, but says it is woman's duty
to study affairs of state,practical politics ,and to read daily papers.
Rensselaer County President Mrs. M. E. Holliday adds that they have not been given
full suffrage because men are afraid of them, since a woman cannot be induced
to vote a party line without regard for how fit to hold office the candidate
is. Women currently enjoy full voting rights in 4 out of 46 states ,but not
New York."
