In Boston, at the last state eleotion, ontof 143,000 assessed voters, only 87,000 registered aiid only 68,000 voted. The woman voters for school committeo in the same election numbered nearly 12,000, and 90 per cent of these voted. In view of these f acts the Boston Advertiser reniarks that "it has been the custom of the opponents of women to inaist that 'if woman suffrage were granted not half the women wonld vote.' The same proportion already holds good for men." When women vote, the men who now stay at home will go to the polls, and "rallying committeea" ■will be unnecessary.
