McKINNEY WILL WELCOME ANY QUESTIONS OR DIS- CUSSION ALONG THESE LINES. ADDRESS HER IN CARE OF THE HERALD. Legislation In the Making I No' 37 AB ourVrorlnctal is now Now here is lull much ,n eres in swtion a study of a few of the lo all, the ospr-cial ciub oat foi the house may he time- women.

Your scribe has tl'e tolivlctioi. that otir law makers are most desirous of passing only such legislation as will meet the aproval of the serioi'S mind- at people of the province. They have ai present no definite way of. ascer- taining the will of the people regard- ing majority of the subjects upon wtcieh are required. to vote. There is evidenced an increasing clc lath Hire and determination on the part of _ tbe people as a whole, that some me- thod shall be worked out and estab- lished whereby the people themselves' shall be able to exert a more definite and direct influence upon legislation ia ttoe making. Laws are lo be observed by tlie whole then. oii'ttie House, and may 1', some litt time yet before it has its final rcad- Jt is liill No. ;'.T. entitled "An Act to Provide for Maintenance o.' Chil- dren and Pour Persons." Sec. reads: "In this Act, unless ihe context otherwise l.i) "Child" shall include illegiti- mate child, ami any child of any child, atlf1. the child of a husbMdinr wife by a former marriage; shall include grand- "Mother" shall include grand- mother; (d) "Municipality1" shall mean any city, town, village or municipal district. Sec. ''The luisband. wMfe. lather. mother and children of every oUl, and lodging for such child. (IO This section shall not Impose any liability on any person to provide maintenance for another if be is un- ablu to do ?o out of his own property I or by means of his labor; nor shall It impose any liability in fnvor of any person who is able to maintain htm- self." Sec. 4. "Subject to the other pro- visions of this Act, a husband shall be primarily Ikiblo for the mainten- ance of his wife, and a w ifr for that i of her husbami." The remainder of See. provides that duty uf the husband to pro- vide' for '.mv "and all of these mention- ed, .shall com, before that pi ihe wife, also before that of the gra.Ufather, and that of n child before the grand- child. Sec. 5 provides, that wbcro anyone is liable for the maintenance of any poor iiorsou anci Mis to do so. then the maynr. or chairman of any city, town or village-, or districl, I where such person resides, or the At- tornoy-Ocmeral. mav apply to a judg tornoy-Ocmera. mav appy o a of the District Court "obtain sum- the child of your husband so marily a maintenance order such person." The person then need not nocessari- ly be supported in the home of tlm person against whom the "order" is secured, but may be placed in an in- than tiey? The effect blind, lame-, menially deficient all laws upon themselves and oth- impotent or of pny either poor -re .is observed by the whole people- who, then, better qualified than they to make definite suggest- ions ?3ut until somo better method is adopted, the only one open to ns is to study BlilB before the House, and voice our aproval or protest to proper department. the person who is ueit able to work, shall provide maintenance, including ade- quate fobd. e-lolhing, medical aid and lodging, for such person. (2) "The father rf and mothfr of every child under the age of sixteen years shall provide maintenance, in- cluding adequate food, medical aid stitution, and the payments arranged for under the "order" shall continue ultti! rescinded by the Judge. Sou. fi. This sec-lion gives the one maintaining another person the only hope of escape vouchsafed in the whole Bill. H is this: If .such partv -thinks tome other person should bear I the burden or a part of it. he fciay ap- peal to a judge, who has power of de- cision. But it is not necessary that the person who would be primarily liable by relationship shall be the one pcainst whom ihe order is given. "Any order made under the provisions of this Act may direct the sheriff that Che money recoverable thereunder shall be levied upon the lands, goods and chattels of tho per- son or persons against tlve or- against illegitimate child, or your wife's step grandmothe Is not this a plan to paupers rather than to escape them? The Poor Dower Act Again Two Acts wore passed at the last BLUE RIBBON TEA' Rich, strong, firtl -flavored tea is the most satisfactory to BLUE RIBBON pos- sesses these qualities to the fullest extent. You can undoubtedly make more cups of tea of equal strength with a pound of BLUE: RIBBON than with any other tea. TRY IT session of the legislature wlilc'i state "the provisions ol the Dower Act shall not apply." Now they aro at it again. However, the more often the phrase "the provisions of the Dower Act shall not appears in our stat- nts, (he sooner will women wako up to the travesty which is onr so-callec "Dower and tho surer will our statutes contain a real Dower Act. An act whicli in adi'.ition to being a real protection, will unite the home and make it one. instead of dividing it in tu two hostile camps.
