WE BEG TO ANNOUNCE to all our Patrons that we are making an important change in our DELIVERY SYSTEM' which'we feel will insure them a prompt and secure service. Our aim has always been to give our customers a thoroughly up-to-date service and in order to accomplish this,end we have introduced, commencing TODAY, a new system for our Delivery Men to follow. - , Briefly it is this-each driver is provided with a Delivery Sheet, on which is detailed the contents of his wagon, and each Customer is asked to sij�n tJiis sheet on receipt of parcel. This may appear unnecessary to you, but our reason is not only to simplify matters in the tracing of stray parcels, but on the Driver's return to the store with the sheet duly signed, we know that your purchase has been satisfactorily delivered. . We feel sure that if you will co-operate with us in this new movement you will be helping and promoting the most prompt and efficient' delivery service in this city. Thanking you for your patronage under the old system, and trusting your hearty co-operation under the new, WE REMAIN, THE HUDSON'S BAY CO. Premier Borden Recei ves (Continued from front page). Continuing, she argued that men would be inclined to emigrate to those countries where their women folk find themselves in a state of political freedom. A Possible Tactic "We have been definitely considering," she went on, "whether we are to hold a great propaganda, advising women not to emigrate to Canada, but to .those colonies where they have the vote. ".Every Canadian statesman ought to think that an important question. "Then,' regarding the state of affairs in this country-" Premier Borden: "ff you will pardon me, I have really been too occupied to follow this question closely bere. I regdrd the' matter here as one for the' British people alone to settle themselves, and. for the same reason I hold the people of Canada must settle it for themselves." Miss Barrett: "Nevertheless, the agitation here has be�n very inconvenient to the present government, and has added materially to their difficulties. I think it is a real menace to their existence." Premier Borden: "What have I to do with that?" Miss Barrett: "I am coming to that. I suggest it will toe a very great mistake for any government to ignore such an agitation, and should like to impress on you that this agitation is going to stay. No government can afford to ignore it. Your reply this morning will regulate very much the kind of advice we give our friends in Canada. We shall definitely consider whether we shall not send someone out to conduct an agitation there." Was It a Threat At this point Mr. Borden looked at his watch, and remarked: "Am I to take that as a threat?" Miss Barrett: "We don't want to threaten." Alluding to the great public reception awaiting Premier Borden on his return, she hoped he would declare himself as representing not only the men, but the women of Canada. Mrs. Tuckwell. who followed, thought Canada wanted more women overseers to frustrate the agents of the wihlte slave traffic. Canadian Men Favorable Mrs. Tuckwell went on to say that her experience travelling in Canada as an agent of the British women's emigration association, was that the men there were quite favorable to women having votes. Miss Sharp, who followed, remarked that her own brother, who was in Canada, was always wanting her to go out and join him, but Bhe preferred The Medical Profession all recognize Abbey's Effervescent Salt as the ideal laxative and cure for constipation-corrects the fault and invigorates (he whole system. ASK YOUR DOCTOR Two Sites 25 and 60 Cents ALU DRUGGISTS. 8 illiHHillHBMIIt staying in the fryingpan instead of Calling into what might be the Are. Premier** Reply Premier Borden In replying, alluded first to the white slave traffic and asked the ladles to send him In confidence any details as to how the traffic in Canada was carried on. Continuing, he explained how tbe provinces absolutely controlled the franchise so far as election of provincial legislatures was concerned. For the last fifteen years. the Dominion parliament had maintaned a law under wheh the provincial franchise applied to election of members of parliament; If the' re-! form was to'be got in Canada, and he announce what the deputation suggested, he would be announcing a departure from the policy of fifteen years. It was obvious that sucb a departure would require more consideration than he could give it In a few minutes that morning. "Whether" he went on, "we shall enact a general franchise law for federal affairs is a matter not yet taken into consideration by the present administration, and until it was suggested that we revert to the old practice it would be manifestly Impossible for me to make any announcement on the situation. Therefore, it resolves itself to this, .that you must go to the nine provincial legislatures, or we shall have to be convinced that it is expedient to abolish a law which has been in force fifteen years. To. disregard provincial enactments and establish a general franchise. Wat this a Snub So far as the British situation ia concerned, it is a question for the British people alone. I do not interfere for the same reason. I would not expect to find any one coming to Canada to interfere. As far as your action at the present time is concerned. May I be permitted to make one remark, I think the women of Canada are sufficiently capable and intelligent to judge these matters for themselves. I would like to add, I shall be most happy to receive any deputation of women in Canada made for the bona fide purpose of laying before me their views. I do not want you to be led into likening too closely conditions in Canada with those here. I am not aware that the law of Canada is at present unjust to any body of women. So far as the Dominion legislature is concerned we should be most eager to remove injustice If any exists. If you have any real representations regarding the homestead laws We shall he happy to consider them. Regarding the position of Australia and New Zealand, I am not prepared to discuss them now. The responsibility for any action you may take will be yours and not ours. "Something has been said," went on the Canadian Premier, "about militant methods, i I do not know if that is Intended to be a threat." Miss Barrett, "It is a. mere statement of fact." Premier Borden: "Very well. My action in public life in the. past, as I hope it will be In the future, is dictated by what I think to be in the interests of the people as a whole and humanity generally. Any suggestion as to methods will not have the slightest effect on me. 1 am perfectly ready to listen to reason and argument and weigh them with the utmost possible care, but If 1 am to be subjected to methods which make my life unpleasant, or inconvenient,-or-even-shorten it, I frankly tell you, these latter considerations will not govern my- action in the matter in the least." Mr. Borden later received a djepdta-tion of anti-suffragettes and traversed the same ground in lu\s reply.
