Winnipeg Jan. 23.-Henderson's City Directory issued today, gives greater Winnipeg a population of 260,430, an increase of 33,007 over population last year reckoned on the same basis. ARE BURIED UNDER 17 FEET OF DEBRIS GANGS ARE AVORKING IN RELAYS TO REACH IMPRISONED MINERS TO MEET AT THE HAT London, Jan. 2.'}.-There is vastly more interest here over the chances of woman's suffrage in the house debates starting tomorrow them there ever was in the Unionist food tax differences. Considering that every section of the House of Commons, from the cabinet down, is pcrplexingly divided absolutely anything mfay happen. Blood will first flow over Sir Edward Grey's proposal to omit the word "male''' from the opening clause of the bill, which point stands as follows : '"Every 'male' person shall be entitled lo i:e registered as a parliamentary elector." Should it be carried the House ot House of Commons will have three alternatives ; firstly, the amendment of Mr. Henderson giving women votes on the same terms as men, which, would add 10,500,000. electors. Secondly,' the amendment of W. Hi. Dickinson, Liberal member for North St. Pancras, giving votes to women over twenty-five' years of age, who are inhabitant occupiers and wives, this adding 0,000,0.00. Thirdly, the amendment of Right J!on. A. Lyttlcton, K. Cl", Unionist member for St. George's, l-Ianover Square, giving parliamentary votes to women who arc already municipal electors. The first, and third propos-nh arc generally considered to have, no chance whatever. Right Hon. H. H.-Asquith is totally . agairiW\vtftes for �nyb'meii.. I't' is 0aid*.-.thiit a feeling ,of against Sir Edward' Grey' and Rt. Hon'., David Lloyd-George for having by their support of Woman's suffrage led ministralists into the difficulties, is growing amongst the general body of the party. Sir Edward Grey a>nd Lloyd-George met- a deputation today ' of women ', sJufiragettes. liloyd-George said it was absolutely incorrect that any member or the cabinet would resign over the matter. "I hope we shall win on' Monday", David Lldyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer; today told a deputation of suffragettes representing the working woih*ri.- of the British Isles, wham he aud Sir Edward Grey, the foreign secretary, received at the treasury department. "I certainly shall do my very best to see that the airsndmcnt to the franchise reform bill eliminating the word 'male' is passed by the House o�, G.ornmdns. ; Since I have been in tlio cabinet I have.become, a more convinced supporter pi. women's suffrage; than, ever. -�-..�. ''My experience during' the passing of the state insurance act has persuaded' ; me that"� one of the most gross pieces of injustice in.public life is that women have no voice in "the Heterrhination of., matters which effect them, more closely than men. . "I am convinced\tliat we shall win and tliat .very, soon;'' The chancellor then went on to say that the Liberal ' government was ready to'stand or fall by Premier As-quitU's pledge that if.the House ; of Commons approved the extension of tl:e franchise to women, the government; 'would support it. Sir Edward ,Grey gave similar assurances to the deputation, but warned the women that the opposition to he overcome was very formidable and that it could not bo done by menace, or personal annoyance.

Bawdeii of Bawden Bros, stated that the executive of the Business Men's assodlation strongly repudiate .the statement and that if any business man in the city did say that he had met with such, tbe association would like very much to know the name of that person. The matter is not yet ended as it is understood the whole question will be thoroughly sifted to the bottom at the next-meeting of the Business men. Other well-known merchants are very wrathy alid feel bhat a gross insult has been; thrown in the faces of all decent citizens.

In. the Hast Side, where Sullivan was born 50 years ago, and where he built up a strong 'political machine that elected, hint to the- New York assembly four times, and to congress once, previous to his election last fail, he is. known as "IJig Tim." He was the friend of the poor and it is said that he never turned a begging hand away without a coin.

War is Over as a Result of Pressure ol the Big Powers PEACE TREATY Will Likely Take a Month tc Decide on the Final Terms T GEIS THE AND SHOULD PAY THE SALARIES Alberta Cities Petitioning Gov-eminent'in.Reference to Police Court Maintenance Bylaws are easily made and more easily broken. This has been proved time and again in the history of the local police court, "and* also in other Alberta cities. The quashing of th3 gambling bylaw by Judge Wintsr in the District Court recently has shown the futility of the attempt by the city to pass bylaws which will take the place of the criminal code. The result of putting the quietus on so many bylaws is that revenue heretofore derived" by the cities from the prosecution of cases will not be lost, for in all prosecutions underthe code the law requires that;'fines collected shall be remitted to the provincial government.  Heretofore, the cities, content with securing the monies from the imposition of. fines, have also been content to pay the salaries of their police magistrates. Now it promiss to be different.
