UNIONIST PM SPLiniNG AGAIN SELECTION OF FREE TRADER FOR CANDIDATE, CAUSING BIG RUMPUS IN BANKS . The Hudson'. Bay -Go. will establish B ^st at Bell River, in northern .Quebec, to compete with independ-�nt tvraders. Ijondou, March 15.-A split is developing in the Unionist party on the fiscal question. The .arrangement of .Tauuary 15 with regard to the elimination, of food duties from the p^rty programme at the next geniral election is in danger of breaking down, owing to the choice of a free trade caindidate by the Unionists of,Kendall for a bye-election to be held ne.xt Tuesday, consequent upon the d6ath of Sir J. K. Bagot. The e.\-traordinary fact of a free trader being chosen by the Unionists has, not unnaturally, given great offence to the tariff reformers, whose sacri-fice in signing the memorial for a modified programme in the interest of liarmony has been eloquently expatiated upon by Austen Cliam'i)erlaiD, F m su ONM li IN mm I Methods no Longer Regarded as a Joke but Rather a Mean Way of Playing up Sex to Avoid Just Punishnient Rev, Dr. Dickson, pfistox of.

Lon.don, March 17.-The position ol the sultrujjcttes today in the eyes of the vast maifHily of I heir iellow countrynieii anil coniitry women can only be called pitiable, l^'oc a briet n^onieiit tliay only appeared at most as a portent. But tlie moment was biieC aud they soon bccaine a jest. Even then they, miglit have developed into heroines and nunrtyrs, hut instead they, became in rapid succession a nuisance-ami a pest. Nothing could regain the good nature with which the authorities dealt with thorn when they first went on the "warpath." Their first objects^ of attack were mainly the smiling bobbies who kept them out of the house o� commons and other places where they had no right to be, or turned them out of parliament meetings. The authorities in these days always treated them with the ivighest good humor. The bobbies irtinned, the public laughed and clieered, and the higher authorities endorsed, as they have done ever since to avoid handling them, seriously, so far as was ossible. To interrupt a political meeting iu this country is a common phase oE political life. Indeed, parliament may be .said to be held up under police protection. For niaijy years, for ex-aiiiple, no opponent of'John Burps, the present government board member, could put a meeting through, in Battersea. Vof this reason the interruptions of political'meetings by tlie militant suffragette did not do them much harm in the eyes ol tlie men in the street, although their methods may hjvu distressed those who lamented to see women, actively participating in such rough and tumble work. The famous' raid.s on the house of commons were nothing more or less than a huge .joke for cockneydom, but they were the first things which marlt'ed a ciiange in the viewpoint at, � the crowd. The women had or.ijauized j �' /"-Ithough the linger strike the west central and soutihwestern districts oM-'Ondon,aud gave an Indica tioti of how such tact/ics would aRect public opinion. Kor ilie ilrnt time the women were roughly handled and ciJiefiy by members of thsir own sex. From that time on "militancy" has developed on lines which have regularly been cabled.- Window smashing remained constant. To it has been added'malicious mischief, such as the destruction of mails, interference w-ith telegraph wires, arson, in varying degrees, from the dastardly at-teuiip,.fc to set fire to tlie Dublin theatre and the bombing of (he house of Lloyd-George, and the burning of nail-way stations in smaller cases, not to mention the destruction of golf greens, thteat.s by anonymous letters and so forth. Examples'of all affairs appeared in the newspapers, but no notice had been taken of the innumerable petty instances of state functions, and even the Oxford-Camlw:idge boat race. � -"V "hunger strike was at first regarded as a joke, by the great pub-' lie, but Is now looked upon as a mean way of playing up sex to avoid fair punishment. Last week two ignorant laborers got seven and five years respectively .at servitude for setting fire to two hay ricks in Sussex, while two women who caused greater damage to the tea pavilion in Kew Gardens got oft' very lightly. One goi/ 18 months' imprisdnmeni and the other was let out on parole before trial, after refusing to take food for 24 hours. In the eyes of the great public the militants have not "played cricket." They howled down Lloyd-George while he was trying to tell them how the country needed their help in the government. They insulted Premier Asquith when he was courteously receiving them in deputation, and they actually blinded for two hours, a member of ;the cabinet, who, while w-riting an article in favor of female suffrage, casually opened a letter which sent, a cloud of pepper into his face. These tactics earned only contempt. The suffragettes have regarded their hunger strikes as a: brilliant success, as Home Secretary McK^enna releases the strikeirs long before., they have been put to the test, 3.\s a matter re MORRIS THEATRE Wed.TdxLrs.

This same general public seems to consider that the militahts have un-soxed themselves arid igi quite ready to hand out the punishment which the forces of the iaw have failed to administer and the temper is such that .only, the greatest precautions of the police can avoid serious and probably most deplorable scenes the next time the militants attempt to make an active demrf)nstration of, their tactics in any populous centre unless it be in the dead of night.

SWIFT CURRENT, London, March 15,-Dr. lugram, Bishop of London, tells of an alleged miracle, -which occurred under his ob-siervation. The Bishop was called in by the motlief'ot a girl of fifteen, suffering a nervous breakdown. The Bishop says' that when he entered the girl's room, the voor child had been raving and- shrieking during the . afternoon, and at first seemed almost unlikely that it was possible, witliout frightening her, to pray for her. "But this extraordinary thing happened; As I went into, her room, I said, 'Do you know me, dearie?" 'Yes,' ahei,said,, and slipped her hand Into mine. Sh^ had not slept for a long time. 'With her mother and nurses, I Icnelt atthe bed. We had two prayers, tiien t anointed her on the forehead with oil, prayed for a blessing on It, placed my hand upon her head, and gave he*- my blessing. "At that moment she Bank into a deep sleep, and slept -for hours during the night, and ,thank God, she is now on the high way to recovery."

Edmonton, March 15.-The Alberta Insurance Act tabled in the House yesterday was .the last legislative work of Hon. Malcolm McKeuzie, provincial treasurer. The act was proposed in a very short time, but bears every imprint of being as thorough as other legislative work done by Mr. McKenzle. The act provides that insurance companies doing business, in the province of Alberta shall pay license fees which promises to be a considerable soUrce of revenue, but is primarily designed as a protection to policy holders. To ensure security the policy holders act provides that every company doing business in the province shall deposit with the provincial treasurer a sum bearing relation to the amount of risks undertaken by it, and every company must furnish information as to its capital and assets and liabilities to the superintendent of insurance, 'who will be appointed. Any failure to publish ah annual statement or to furnish information when requested to do so involve.* a penalty, and .where the provincial treasui'ea' has e-vldfeuce that assets have sunk below the amount necessary to meet the payment on unearned premiums and other liabilities, or where undisputed claims remain unpaid for sixty days after notice has been given, he may cancel the license of the company. Every certificate of insurance after the passing of the act will be required to bear the register mark under the provincial act. Last session a hail insurance ..act was passed allowing private , companies to do hail � insurance business previously done by the provincial government, which act provided for deposit to be paid to the provincial treasurer, but other kinds of Insurance companies were not compelled to make a deposit. The present act covers all kinds- of insurance companies atid repeals the hall Insui'ance act. The amount of these deposits fixed by act is as follows: Every joint stock company, if provincial, $10,000, and if foreign, .?20,OOO, except plate glass insurance companies, which shall deposit $30,000. For benevolent provid�nt and industrial corporation Insurance societies not incorporated under the Dominion act, $10,000, but if doing only sickness and funeral beiiefll; insurance $2000; ' provincial, mutual Are W lire and marine Insurance companies $5000; while if risks in any one year exceed $1,500,000 then for each one and a half millions or fraction of -that amount the company is required to deposit in addition a sum equal to ohe-half of the original deposit, or if provincial company It shall keep on deposit $200 for every $100,000, by -vvhich total contingent liability is exceeded., THE ARi ESTIMATES SHOW AN INCREASE London, March 15.-The estimated amount which the House of Commons is to be asked to appropriate this year for expenditure on the British army Is $141,100,000, against $139,300,-000 last year, an increase of $1,800,000.
