WOMEN AND THE SUFFRAGE.
[TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SPECTATOR.'] SIR,-Will you kindly allow me to point out to you that Lady Chance (see Spectator, November 12th) was collecting the signatures of women in favour of the Conciliation Bill, whereas the card sent out by the Women's National Anti-Suffrage League merely asked the question,." Do you wish women to. have a vote for Parliament ?" This might be taken, and I know in some cases was taken, to mean giving the vote to. women in general, and it would naturally account for the difference in the numbers of the signatures obtained; many women who are in favour of the Conciliation Bill are against universal suffrage. I regret that the question put by the Women's National Anti-Suffrage League was not more explicit, as the returns would then have been of service in deciding the fate of the Conciliation Bill.—I am, Sir, &c., G. H.
