Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta TMK THURSDAY. JANTABT 8, MM ALBERTA WOMEN AND ALBERTA LA WS (BY LILLIE VOUNQ McKINNEY) MRS WILL WELCOME ANY QUESTIONS OR DIS- CUSSiON ALONG THESE LINES. ADDRESS HER IN CARE OF TriE HERALD, week we reviewed thai status Of women in tlio country south of us. Wo discovered that there the status of "vassal" boon succeeded by that of a "panner." In some States, the partnership is complete, anil in others not entirely so. This different "status" must be taken into consideration in any com- parison of laws between the two coun- tries. For instance a certain farm paper has'been giving statistics recanting the number of women in the States, in Canada who do not have their butter and egg money. But the edi- torial fails to state that there if the T.-ife does not get it it is still while here- if she does not it is "her iusbands." Also, women in the States .ire of-1 ten commiserated because they can- sot will their own property as they wish. But remember, a partnership in and must be based upon mutual in- terests and ownership. V.'omen can- mot ask for a "partnership" a changed "itatus" without the partnership work-, tag both ways. For instance, she could hardly ask to he a full partner with her husband, and also hold onto ler own. j Now we women of Canada must de-1 what "status" we do want. Do want to continue "vassals" and hold onto a little corner here and there, to continue the "yours" and "mine" legislation, or do we want a real partnership'.' As long as we con- j tinue to ask for little corners, and make regular campaigns to obtain i "icraps" men will know that we are yet ready for anything else, and it will not be given us. property of the mother equally liable i fir; tin? support of the children with thill of tlio father. In this statement I am not considering tho law which is supposed to give to the mother equal piii-eiiial rlslits with those en- joyed by thy father, that law is of'liUle value to the wife and mother without property rights, bu'c the oth- i r.- -holding Her to a will bi> effective. Thin the wife is a "vassal" has frequently boon stated In '.his column and the facts shown, but as there is no subject upon which your scribe receives such frequent queries, a few proofs will be stated here once again. One proof is that the husband must pay any necessary debts contracted by his wife. This would seem to in- sure the maintenance or the wife and children, but in actual practice, doss it? As long as the public is not in- formed as to any serious trouble be- tween husband and a merchant] will not hesitate to extend the hits- band's credit to the wife. But at the: first hint of domestic friction that ere- j dit vanishes, 1'or the merchant is look-: ing lor such accounts as will he willingly and, promptly paid. Then i too that word "necessary." is so vague when applied to human life. We have previously cited a case where a judge held that a man was for his wife when be simply found her a place to labor, practically as a ser- vant. Thus It Is seen that the wife has no legal right to eat of the fruit of i her own and her husband's labor be- cause of her labor, but eeause she Is j her husband's wife. She bread i te has earned it, than to obtain "scraps." for when wo ask for some special thing, we are confronted with the fact that to grant is against the attitude of the liw regarding the wife. The Canada Way Now the Canadian tnought is brief- all sho is filling that position. Why Labor True, many women ao not earn their living. have wives who are mere trlflers with matrimony, "who prefer society, a gay life, to the duties of wife and mother. But the law evi- dently not intend that the wife >f- Save earned.

They paid lalf the fine and were given a month to the balance. their hurt.

We may not realiie it, butwe are at the parting of the ways. A principle, accepted almost since the beginning of time, is hang- ing in the balance. It is impossible to protect a "vas- by law from other than physical violence, aud there is a question if even that can be successfully done. Just to prove that point, let us cite the so-called Dower Acts of the three prairie provinces. In one of a man has but to move off of the homestead.

But you canrtot make a present to a horse. HIa master will proflit by it some way. For Instance, to the city of Calgary, a certain man and woman came some time ago to sell the homestead.

After j seven years, the law adjudges a man i dead if he has disappeared for that j time and you could then marry again without committing bigamy. Mrs. for your kind ap- preciation. My previous article was j iu fault. This is the correct situation. The hours for factories must not he j more than from seven in the morning to six in the evening, with one hour off for dinner. The night shift must i not be more than hours. The privy council haa decided that the provinces have the power to regulate j hours of labor, and the Minimum j Wage Board recommended that the hours be left with that body.
