The following statement was made on high authority last night : "If the suffrage amendment is defeated and Sir Edward Grey ieels that tho decision 'has not been arrived at on the merits of the case and without consideration of. any possible danger to the government he will fesl compelled to vote against the iran-.fehisc^bTll'.'"^ "It was oh the undersUnding that no consideration except that of suffrage"should' be aHSwcd to enter the division that;Sir^ward Grey agreed to the.cburSe aolr^fcd by the cabia?t on this'ins'tanr^alntl Mr. Asi^uith will probably make- ifr'^plain this week that that is the altitude adopted by tin', cabinet." With regard to the general question of .suffrage, the house of commons may be divided roughly into four grea% parties, namfely : First-Those opposing woman suffrage., 'v Second-Those .'supporting woman suffrage. ' .7     Thifd-Thos^supporting woman suffrage' in a limitea degree. Fourth-Tbose^yho support Premier Asquith -befoi:^'anything else." There are the-possible main developments. In--fin> first place, Sir Edyvard Grev's awendment to omit the. word " male';',. may be defeated. In the second plaoe, it may be passed, and then ail tlfe definite woman's suflrage. an-,endm^iit.s may ,he defeated. In the -tbipSl place, one or the totlier of the;wbnTu's.snflrage,amendments may;,'be-'parsed in-iebmraittje.

The terminals for  the road are already; purchased, and work has been i^arted, so that they may be ready as soon as the road is ready for operation. The. C. P.

North Lethbridge Business Men Say it is Too Far Away SOME NEEDS Want Bank, Better Lighting, Street Car and Mail -Service .North Lethbridge business .men �are already out with a progressive program which ivas 'discussed' at a meeting held in Kennedy Hail > last evening, presided over by W- -P. .. J. Alexander, president of the association. It yvas a meeting conspicuous for its unanimity of purpose inas.v j-rrnich as the large representation'pre-sent expressed its desire to 'lose no time in improving business conditions in North Lethbridge.,,;. It yvas agreed to circulate a petition among the residents and business men as to the need of haying a . branch bank, as it was felt this would prove of great convenience,to "the north side of the .city. The matter yy-'ill be taken up shortly \vith the various banking houses in the city.. Mail Facilities Better mail service facilities yvere also needed. At present the collected once a day, namely, at seven o'clock every evening. This yvas somewhat inconvenient to the _ business men, yvho will ask the post office authorities to change the hour back to nine o'clock. The question of the city market next came up for discussion, and a strong protest yvas made as to estaV-lisJung a market at the Athletic Park � 'wjhich was too lar out of the way and would be absolutely ussless to-tte . residents in the north side. It yvas the opinion of the meeting that the market should be established: some-.w4iera.,ui,the centre of the city njlar; vtp the car "line if it was to be of real value, to the citizens. - � Lighting Service -: ; Better lighting service is also nced-!ed, and to that end the city council yvill be asked to put an additional arc lamp betyveen i every one now in use and also to instal cluster lights -fit some future time. . Car Service The car' service question was final-, ly taken up and it was decided to ask -.the council for a. three car service with a ten minute schedule. The pres- ' ent two car service -is not sufficient - for the convenience of the travelling . public ia North Lethbridge.

This will give them a connection between the Soo. line and the Crow's Nest branch of the: C. P. ,R. in British Columbia, and will parallel a large portion of the ;G. N. R; main line.
