REPORT OF THE MEMBER OF THE EXECUTIVE
COMMITTEE OF THE NATIONAL AMERICAN
WOMAN SUFFRAGE ASSOCIATION.

The Twenty-Fifth Annual Convention of the National Amer»
ican Woman Suffrage Association was held in VVashingtou, D. C.,
January, 1803.

'J] The opening address was by Rev. Annis Eastman, a Congre—
gational minister. Thirty-six states were represented, numbering
ninety delegates.

‘ The most important step taken by the Convention was the
__ amendment to the By-Laws, which allows the Convention to meet
W in some other city than Washington the second year of each Con—

gress. The object of meeting in \Vashington was to have a hearing
before each new Congress.

Resolutions were adopted without dissent, except the one
relating to the right of Congressto close the VVorld’s Fair 011
Sunday. This elicited considerable opposition and discussion
before it was tabled. _

The Convention will be held in Washington City in February,

\ 1894, as the new Congress assembles in that year.
Respectfully submitted,
SARAH M. SIEWERS, M. D. ,
[Member of Ercmliw Commi/lae, IV. A W S. A. .

March 12th. NEH, Miss Clay with Mrs. Henry, were called to
j Frankfort by telegram to hear the final discussion in the House on
I]. the Property Rights of \Vomen. ' '
April 5th and tith, Miss Clay with Mrs. Farmer, endeavored to
3’ revive, if possible, the \Voinen Physician’s Bill. This bill passed
1' the ‘Senate, was killed in the House, because the Chairman 0n 3
i Charitable Institutions was not, favorable to women serving as
‘ physicians in the Lunatic Asyluins of theState. We were certain _
of the retention of the School Suffrage Clause in the charters for
, cities of the second class, but the legislators decided not to change
: the charters for these cities. Evening addresses were dispensed
with. In making personal appeals to the legislators, we found
them ever kind and courteous.
EUGENIA B. FARMER, Secretary.
REPORT OF THE CORRESPONDING SECRETARY.
The Sixth Annual Report of the Kentucky Equal Rights
Association shows the members of the Association have not been
idle. We have cause to be thankful for the conservative Property
Rights Bill passed by the last Legislature and. signed by Governor "
Brown on the 19th of May, 1891-3.
The School Suffrage clause was inserted in the charters for. 1
the cities of the second class; but the work was confined to the ‘
cities of Covington, Newport and Lexington. The Legislature
decided not to change these charters.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON WORLD’S FAIR WORK.

Mrs. Avery found it impracticable to secure space for repre-
senting our work in the Kentucky Building, she decided to place
a Kentucky register in the department of the N. A. W. S. A. in the
Organization Room of the \Vomen‘s Building, and to employ the
lady attending there to transcribe into it the Kentucky names from
the general suffrage register, In this manner nearly six hundred
names were obtained. Donations to this committee work were ten
dollars from Mrs. Avery and one dollar from Miss Clay. '
