White "Swan Skives &: Cereal-Co,, Ltd;, Toronto. 121 London, Jan. 27,-"DUhed again" was the inelegant; phrase employed by not a few London newspapers to describe the sudden crumbling of hopes which the women suffragettes had 'built upon in the parliamentary debate on the voteB for women, arranged to take place in connection with the government's, new franchise bill this week. ' Just as the goal, so long striven for seemed to be in reach a question of parliamentary procedure removed it beyond the possibility of present attainment. "The.-^.poiheBis of red tape" is the description applied in this instance, and ^n some respects the situation is astounding. Woman's suffrage is an issue which has been facing parliament for years. So far back as 1908 the. premier stated that when the franchise, bill should be introduced, it would pe so framed as to admit the possibility of 'woman's suffrage. The amendments embody--ing the change have been discussed for months. . ; 5.' . ...The position af the ministers in regard to them is a su,b;ject of endless � speculation.. . The determination of �the government as a whole was to accept the> decision of the- House whatever the personal opinions of itB individual members were., ' Suddenly, just on the eve of the parliamentary bill'which was expected-to decide the whole/question of woman's suffrage, Mr. Bouir Law puts the apparently Innocuous question, and Mr. an answer which brings the, whole carefully elaborated plans to grief. The Speaker's ruling was that the introduction of the proposed amendments would sq change the character of the franchise bill, that, according to ibe precedents of tha House, a fresh bill must be introduced. Davidi Lloyd George and other ministers argnod against this, but Mr. Speaker, as the guardian of the un-'written law, regulating- the.procedure in Parliament, wquld not .be gainsaid, aud the government ia expected to withdraw the franchise bill before 7.30 today, which was to have been a red letter day in the House and in suffragist annals, for-'the House was to have voted on Sir Edward Grey's amendment. There is Borne possibility; even now that the vote may be taken. Were the house to reject, the Grey amendment, woman's suffrage would be^ come a. dead letter in the present parliament. Although up to the present, it is calculated that a small majority would have been found in favor of. the Grey amendment, it Is now thought certain that it 'would be rejected if a vote wore taken,' � Therefore, to proceed to a vote 'would, in one reBpect, get the government out of its dilemma; and enable it. to wash its ..hands: of .fpmale suffrage. Such a relief, -^However, would be only apparent and not real.-. The women suffragists themselves,'and their supporters in parliament would assert that a division of suffrage, would not only nominally, but '.really fulfil the pledges given the women by tine premier. � . -.'.- ,'-'.

Harris �& Co Begin Block, Lethbridge and 387 Main Street, Medlicine'Hat SUFFER HARDSHIPS TO GET L MISSIONARY TELLS OF GREAT GREED FOR LAND IN PEACE RIVER COUNTRY Edmonton, Jan. 2G.-Many settlers going into the Peace River have the land hunger in very acute form, and in their anxiety to possess themselves of acres are putting up with all kinds of privations. Rev. A. Forbes, maintained as missionary at Grande Prairie City by the First Presbyterian Church in Edmonton, is in the city on an annual visit, and relates that people who Went into ^the Peace River to taxe up land, do not, like, those settled nearer towns and cities, come out to find other work during six months of the year, and as a consequence they endeavor to secure as much land as possible by "scrippiug." Often a man and his wife 'will hold four South African scrips between them, 'and will live entirely separate lives, the wife "batching'.'- on her two half sections in alternative six months of the year, and the husband doing the same on- hie. Thus, between them, they hold two whole sections of land. Necessarily, the expense of putting a house on each homestead and paying taxes on all the land is a heavy drain oh their resources. "I think there will be some cheap land bye and bye," said Mr. Forbes. "But for the present people are saying we want land and we want it in spite of all costs and difficulties." In some enses where holdings of '.bustElrd � s.rd v.iffe adjoined the?,' built two-roomed bouses, one room on either side of the dividing Hue, but he doubted whether that would satisfy tlie homestead inspectors. NOW HOW WILL THE KAISER FIX IT HE IS TO HAVE BRAND NEW STYLE OF WEARING HIS MOUSTACHE Berlin, Jan. 27.-There is great uneasiness in aTmy circles over the Kaiser-or, to be exact, over the Kaiser's moustache. The heaven-kissing ends of the war lord's mouBtache have been a fetish to his fighting men,, and the happiness of the officers, especially the young officers, has been in direct proportion to their success in duplicating the Kaiser's tilt. Now comes the disquieting report that the Km-peror is contemplating a change in the style in his hirsute adornment. The Kaiser has consented to have a new likeness of himself mad'a for the Prussian .silver ^coinage. Ever since he mounted the throne, he was represented with the � unturned moustache. The new design will be kept a secret until the appearances of. the coin on the occasion of his Majesty's silver Jubilee, next June, so that the Imperial birthday, which occurs tomorrow 'will not be spoiled by a distressing rush of army men to the barber shops. The Kaiser's youngest son, Prince Joachim, who is a student at Heidelberg University, where his professors have been unable to report favorably upon his progress, has received a chastening telegram from his father forbidding him to come to Berliu to join in his Majesty's birthday celebrations tomorrow. ---.,-V.,'r- MACLEOI> YAFT AND PANAMA Baltimore, Md.,.
