Last night thi humble little building on the Hud- son's Bay Hats resembled in one res- pect the great House of Porliament at Westminster.'There, was one differ- ence. It was not necessary to removr the suffragists by tlie policfc. Thcj demandwl the manly' privilege of ex i-rcihing the franchihe in municipal elections. Their claims are advanced on behalf of married women who have, endured living with their hus- bands, as the franchise has already been grantttl to grass widows nnd spinsters. The suffragists were from Strath- cona and In-fore the com- mittee on municipal-law; which was considering a number of amendments to the charters of llic cities of Al- berta.- The had the greatest iliificulty in reaching the committee They were without escorts and unac quainted with the building, and scur riod through several of the depart mental offices before they reached the reception room of the members, ere they found one of the messen- gers and with difficulty in cajoling or bribing the, reticent youth to lead them to'the committeee room. The of the ladies deputa- tion into the room was signalized by the hasty snatching of cigar stubs and removal of hats.- Three of the ladies addressed the ccmmitteee. Appar- ently the only member of the com- mittee who had courage to reply to the spokeswomen was John Tv Moore, for thiyrest sat in gallant silence all loquence, the claims of the suffra- tgettes of Strathcnoa were presented. Che ancient fundamental doctrine 'of 10 representation no taxes, was sol- emnly affirmed by each speaker in ,urn. "Women have no said one of the ladies of the dtrputation. 'that their husbands represent .them. Some husbands are not worthy, to rep- resent their wives. If a wife is fit- to own property and pay Uxea, she is fit to vote.'.' The ladies were armed with a reso- lution of the city council in favor 01 an amendment of this nature to bo incorporated in the city charter, and the spokeslady carried a htifc cane. The city solicitor of Strithcona ed the objection that the resolution was carried only by double vote of the mayor. Deftly brandishing her stick, the spokeswoman of the depu- tation called tlie city solicitor down in genuine womanlike vituperation, which made the legal of Wiun of Strathcona sorry thai he spoke. The upshot o! the whole matter that the deckled tbat when the women of Strathcona and the city cwMwrii reconciled the claims cf the anffragists will be Ac- knowledged. through the interview.
