Just why thl? has not been done long .were laid out by a1 commission in the last Gladstone administration. That will come later and then will follow the-ahiHtion of the present antiquated system of having the elections spread over a period L6f-.two weeks. When these are all, accomplished, Britain 'was useless to try to make sucli a reform until th-a Mouse of Lords had been whipped tivlo submission. There are. in England especially, thousands of voters who own property and can iiualify to vote in several ridings and as tho elections arc spread out over a period of two weeks, they have ample opportunity of casting all the votes the law allows Ihem.

It. cahnott be charged against th-e Asquith government that it is tardy in these matters for political reasons. It is acknowledged that each of these, reforms will add voting strength to the Liberal party. In Fact, the London Spectator, a Conservative paper, says that it' the one man, one vote franchise -is adopted, the Unionist party will not get in office for a great many years, if it ever does. The general, elections, the Unionists carried scores ot scats by the non-resident vote. .The Laurier government did away with plural voting in Canada as soon as -it camq into ofllcp, and now the most rabid Conservative would not advocate returning to the system that was' once one. of their pet pol.iiciil hobbles. It takes time to bring about reforms In, the Old Country. The government 3 known to be anxiouk to bring about a rediatfibuxioii of the seats, which have not changed since favor of the Unionist party, the landowners and aristocracy, while the lengthy voting period is the very thing for the wealthy automobile owning The only reason that can be alleged .why the government Is not busy seeking political advantage In ;thiB way.

And it is only .recently that this has been ascertained. Donald Mackinnon, professor of Gaelic r.t.

The name is sounded in Gaelic with the stress on the first'syllable and a single "r" sound. In Gaelic the name Is spelled -'Calgaraldh."
