Minutes November 10th 1894

A meeting of the Louisville Equal Rights Association was called for Nov. 10th 1894, there having been no meeting since April 1893. Mrs. C. A. Leech presiding, gave an interesting account of the annual meeting of the State Association which she attended on October 17th18thand 19th. The general work for the year, as outlined by theState Asso. being in the interest of school suffrage for women. The second class cities of the state have the suffrage secured to them and it is important that in Louisville, the only first class city in the state, we make an earnest effort to obtain the same right. A motion was made by Mrs. Hayden and seconded by Miss. Beeler, that we make school suffrage our work for the year. The motion was carried.

After discussing methods of work it was decided that the President should advise with Mr. J. M. Chatterson, a prominent member of the School Board known to favor school suffrage for women and report at the next meeting.

The dues from local associations to the state organization having been changed by the Convention from .25 cts to .35 cts., Miss. Beeler moved that the additional 10 cts. per member be sent to the State treasurer, and the corresponding change made in our Constitution. Carried. The change in membership fees from $1.00 to .50 cts was discussed, and decided in favor of the reduction, at least for this year as an experiment. Miss. Beeler moved that our next meeting be a week from the following Monday, Nov. 19th, at 3 o'clock. Carried.

The meeting then adjourned.
