To be sure there were but" few nominated and fewer still elected, yet tlfere were enough to prove the fact that women are competent to hold positions of trust and emolument;and men are generous, enough to admit their good judgment and capabilities. So far the women .seem perfectly able to hold their own ecpially as welLas men on any question that comes before the Assembly in either house. In Committee work they are quite as compe tent we are told and will certainly as the womenof Wyoming and Colorado have settled any doubts as to their being either too weak, or" too emotioual to take part in public affairs of the state or the" nation.
