The djscussion over the woman suffniRe question in the University, is exciting considerable attention from tbc press. Misa Eliza Darling's trite reply to Mrs. May Wright Thompson in the New York Nation, aroused the re of the latter, and now the merits of the question are coming to the surface in an interesting way. The bone of contention is the nuraberof fbmale students of the University who are in favor of wonian suffrage. The exponent of woman's rigbts asserted through the Nalion that the greater part of them were suffragist, this Miss Darling promptly denied and iroduced statistics gathered by herself, showing the falsity of the claim. Soon after a vote was taken in the medical departmcnt, at first derogatory to a suffrage, this was afterwards reconsidered and was found to stand thirtysix in favor ; thirteen undecidod, and four opposed. Mrs. Thompson claims a victory from this source, and throws Miss Darling's report out of consideration, on the ground that from seventy ladiesjn the literary deIartinent,fourteen werc in favor of suffrage, thirtytwo opposed, five undecided, and two non cornniittal, thus leaving twenty-one whose opinión, she says.were not obtained. These Mm. Thompson bas the presump tinn t.n p.laim. im -I' -ff...slm,B. öhe claims further that as the age of the women in the medical department averages twenty teven years, and those in the literary department only twenty-one years, the opinión of the former is of more consequence. She seetns to forget that tliose who have chosen a man's calling for a life profession would naturally defire all his privileges, thus invalidating their opinión ai it would not be a fair mcans of judging f the views of the greater mass of educited women. Furtber developments are anxiously awailed for, but not until a more concise vote is taken can the question bo sitisfactorily decided.
