LATHROP Stafford Block farny� Loan* f.onduti, Dec. 1(1.-A draft of a bill ])romotod by the divorce law Teform union, proposing drastic alterations in existing divorce laws, and based .pn the majority report of the recent lloy-al Commission on divorce, will be laid before Parliament early in- tlio new year. TUo society's iwiroary object is the extension and amendment of conditions at present governing divorce and facilities, where wives have bfeen maliciously and permanently deserted, where there is incurable insanity, chronic drunkenness and cruelty. The secretary of the reform union, explaining the situation, said: "The chUTCh people hold out the hope that nothing 'will happen to the existing divoi'ce laws for a time, I am inclined to think the wish is to the tliought. According to tljem, there is no popular demand tor divorce. In"the same breath they say that if divorce Is allowed on extended lines, human passions 'ft'ill prevail and there will be a flood of di vorces, Thig seems to us like a con tradictlon of the terms. "As the result of a very careful scrutiny, I have found that TO per cent, of the newspapers favor the ma-orliy report In the main. The bnmt of opposition to the demand tor ex^ tejided divorce Is borne by the treme eccle.iiastlcal party. The gcn^ oral church party Is divided. We have many modern to church people on our books.
