OLANDER GENERAL HARDWARE AND TOYS - , 524 THIRTEENTH STREET NORTH - LONDON, Dec. 14.-(Canadian Press via Reuter's)-The election in which 21,000,000 voters poll today, though described as one of the most momeil-touB of modern times, is characterized by a curious lack of excitement bor--derlng on apathy. This is notably the case with part of the 8,000,000 new women voters whose verdict no political prophet ventures to forecast. That the Coalition government will be victorious is a pertalnty. The only question Is the size of the,majority estimates of which vary from 180 to 130 over all parties. It is asserted that the results of the canvass made many candidates nervous tegarding what are considered to be safe seats and at least 200 seats are now doubtful, ineludlug those of prominent persons like Mc-Kenna, Henderson and' minlstters Jike McNamara, Sir' Eric Geddes, Sir Stanley Roberta-Barnes and Sir Christopher Addison. The Labor men are now more confident of securing more than the 130 seats they originally estimated. The Coalitionists concede Labor eiglit seats. The Coalition papers emphasize that the sole Issue is whether tho government which organized victory slwH , b^ returned to make peace ana organize' recohstruc-' tion. To this the opposition I presS replies: "Vote lor a free parliament, free trade and no conscription.".' Quiet Elieotlonis ; LONDON, Dec. 14.-The general-elections today are proving to be one of the Quietest Great Britain has wit-; nesaed In years. Thre is no great domestic Issue before' the electors, as was the case Tjefore the war, while with the exception of tho small pacifist group the campaign has appeared to indicate that there is no sharp division of opinions to Hie country's attitude toward the peace conference". Much Interest attaches to the vote which the women will cast in this, the first general election in which thejr have' had an ^opportunity to partic FORBENEFITOF REIPED pate, and a considerable curiosity Is manifest as to the number of them to exercise 'the franchise. There was a rush to the election boothB In London during the early hcuri, but a great majority,of the voters are. expected to cast tbeir ballot* in the a:ftemoon, the day beine a half holiday. : Women Rush to Polls In soaie'dlstrlctB particularly those inhabited 'by tho working class the women were at the polls before tho men and in large numbers. In one district In the east end of London, there were 10 women voters to every man. The rain, however, kept the women from the polls during the morning in the more, aristocratic sections. Labor Party ,Mr,.Lloj:d George's challenge to the Labor . party at. Camberwell was promptly-taken up by.X.abor. Robert �Clynes, speaking at Nottingham, said that the Labor party was the same party which two years ago decided to support Mr, Lloyd George. The only difference was that it was larger. It was true that in some cases those of the party .'Fbo look extreme views, which he^.^d not share, had been able to gradually inlluence certain local aft(ons,',ftiijt''jfour out of five Labor candidates'.niiw before the country had: iiqt becBJ 'c^iiBeri tjy that small minority "of''ex|r"epiists, but by the great trades juiijljips.

There, was no evidence in proof of Lloyd George's assertion that the Labor party were Bolshevikists. On the cpntrary, Mr. Henderson said, he could produce ample evidence thgt the LaboiT party sought as earnestly as he- tor the ) triumph of democratic principles.

A PROMPT ATTENDANCE-will BE APPRECIATED Two very important decisions were made'by the directorate of the Y.M.C. A.-at.^heIr regular meeting, on Thujs: faay evening. The problem of the' re-'turning soldiers occupied a good deal ''�9| the attention of the meetiijg, and tniS''probIem was discussed from all its angles. It was realized that the Y-M.C.A. must play a large part in aiding the return of the soldier to civil life, particularly from a social point p� view, in providing proper occupation for the soldiers during their hours of leisure. The social, committee of the directorate h?is .vtaken this problem In hand, with the result that -:a sipeciai effort will he made by them to ge^ into ; touch with every"'soldier as heretilyhs to the city, to give him the glad ^and, and to assist him'in any way, gp^felbiel This committee will GJDi-qperate )viiix the 'Vef.erans or-any other brganiz'a-tion with this end in view.

In further regard to this prbblehijjit was decided .tOi throw open tlie'in'gti; tution here, arid to extend its prlvil' eges to the returning soldiers for' a period of three " months," absolutely without chai'ge-lt was felt that thi^ at least was one'jfleflnlte plan for getting into touch with the returning men and of assisting them to, re-ad'just themselves in the social life of the  community. It was felt also that this was only due to the' men who are return-, ing from the sufferings and discomforts of the battlefield. i The Work Among Boys. The other important decision reached Vas that the work among the boys .must 'he developed along wider and more effective lines. This work will be undertaken by the neyv, physical direct-; or, and at^ another meeting on Monday night next It,will be decided as ', io whether the director Ayill need assistance in tills lyork.
