Suffrage for Overseers.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The bill extending the suffrage for members of the Board of Overseers to all graduates of the scientific departments came up before the legislature on Tuesday afternoon. An amendment was offered providing that the act shall only take effect within three months after its passage, upon its acceptance by the President and Fellows and Overseers of the College and a majority of the alumni now entitled to vote for Overseers.

Another amendment striking out the word "male" in reference to the graduates was offered. This was in order that women receiving degrees from the University should have the privilege of suffrage.

Both amendments were carried and the bill was ordered to a third reading.
