The right for women to vote is possessed to a greater extent than is generally supposed, however much excitement is being caused by the agitation of that question in this country. In Austra women vote as nobles and taxpayers. In Canada, and ins some of our own states women are allowed to vote, for, and serve as, school Trustees. In the year 1862 Sweeden granted to all women possessing specific property qualifications, the right to vote. In Itly, a widow, or a married woman separated from her husband can vote if she be a tax payer. But in Holland, single women, if property holders, may vote upon all questions likely to affect the value of their property. In some of the towns of France women vote in municipal affairs. And in our own country, Dakoto and Wyoming have granted the right of suffrage to women, and in his last proclamation, the Governor of Colorado advises the passage of a similar nature.
