Miss Laura Clay of Lexington, Kentucky, an officer of the National Woman's Suffrage association, will be in Marietta on Wednesday, May 22nd, and will deliver an address at the assembly room of the court house that evening at 8 o'clock.

The meeting here will be held under the auspices of the local suffrage campaign committee, on which are Rev. and Mrs. E. A. Coil, Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Morgan, Mrs. Charles H. Turner, Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Middleswart and other prominent men and women.

It is expected that an active campaign in behalf of the extension of the suffrage to women will be launched in this city, in common with hundreds in all parts of the country, the National association and state organizations being more active than ever before. There are many supporters of the movement in Marietta.
