In fact practically every em- ployee of the city is out on strike, with the exception of the heads of departments, and those at the water the pumping station come out at eleven o'clock to- morrow morning. At a meeting of the teamsters' union held tonight a sympathy strike vote was 'taken, and it was unanimously decided to come out on strike tomorrow mornir.g.i a.t noon: this will affect between ninety and one hundred men.

Ottawa, April the opinion of western members prevails, the new Dominion Franchise act, which will .be brought into the House this session, will be based on broad British principles. That is to say, that regard will be had for Canadian citizenship, and the new act will be devoid of many of the objectionable features which have- made the "War Time Elections' act notorious. Otherwise there may be a split in the Union government; and that means not only the'rank and file, but the cabinet. In fact, the question of the franchise is as pregnant of deep controversial potentialities as is that of the tariff. That there must be a new franchise act does not appear to be seriously controverted on either side of the House. That it must be enacted this session is inevitable, in spite of the suggestion of Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux, yesterday, to the effect that as elections were not contemplated it would be well for the government to sheK-e the contentious measure for the present session. No man can predict in these times when an election will be precipi- tated, and if one were to bo precipitated at the present time it would have to be run under the War Time Elections' act, and nobodyjsants that. 1C it were held after-that act it will lapse with the TVar Measures' the old act of 1908 would have to be resorted to, and that is defect- ive for several reasons. There is, flrst of all, a necessity for a Dominion franchise, and secondly a, necessity for Dominion lists. The conferring of the franchise on women by the federal authorities, which, it is proposed, shall be as wide as possible, is one of the chief reasons for the necessity of a Dominion franchise. Prince Edward Island has no women's vote. In Nova Scotia it is restricted. 3n New Brunswick the same is true. In Quebec female franchise has not been repc.-t. which had been awaited with Limerick Strike to End; Men Granted Concessions Figures Annual Saving- to City Over Present System Would be Over Limerick, April 24 (Associated stake which has bcefl in progress in Limerick for some time is to be called off tonight, the military authorities having made slight conces- sions to the strikers, at the request of the mayor and Bishop of Limerick- The strike committee is now con- j sidering these concessions. The strike leaders visited the mill- tary posts this afternoon, but found the lines had not been changed to meet their early demands and went into conference on the matter. The definite action of the committee will be announced by proclamation. Food has been plentiful and strike notes have not yet been issued, as the leaders say they have plenty of funds, so far.

In addition to the above provincial discrepancies manhood suffrage in the provinces varies largely, while under present conditions very many Do- minion subjects never have a vote at'all at Dominion elections. For instance, take the case of Winnipeg, Toronto or Montreal. The pro- vincial qualifications call for residence of one year in the province, and of a certain time in the district. A voter's name may be on the list, 'but if he moves across the street into another polling district prior to the election he cannot vote. The ease of the Methodist clergy is also cited.
