Mrs. Walter S. Atchison of Morgan Park addressed the Glencoe Equal Suffrage club in a meeting conducted in the home of Mrs. Sherman M. Booth, Vernon avenue and Lincoln street, Glencoe, Monday afternoon. Her subject was "Suffrage, the World's Movement." In the course of her talk, Mrs. Atchison declared that the killing of Madero would set the suffrage cause in Mexico back 100 years, because the former Mexican ruler was a staunch supporter of woman's suffrage.

African women, according to Mrs. Atchison, enjoy more equality than the English women. She stated that the feminine sex of the Congo country, being equal in inheritance, enjoy all the joys and sorrows of the male sex.

Mrs. Booth, hostess, gave a short talk on the work being conducted in the state legislature at Springfield to secure the passage of the equal suffrage bill. She has been at the capital working with the law makers in support of the bill.
