' By the terms of the bill to be introduced by the Do.minion gov. emmient will not as�ume responsibility for preventing the importation of liquor into a province which ha� adopted prohibitory law. It will simply' provide a measure by which that may be done provided the province has decided that It Is not legal for a man to import liquor Into the province in which he resides for his personal or household use, Re-eponsibllity for deciding that liquor shall not be Imported into the province will continue to rest with the legislature^ Under the provisions of the proposed act, heavy penalties will be Imposed upon dealers who allow liquor to be taken into any province which has decided against its Imiporta-tlon. Such dealers will be liable to penalties of $100 and $200 and Imprisonment for the first and second offences, and to Imprisonment for subsequent offences without the option of a fine.

CLOSE SHAVE IN A HOIPIE Coalition Comes Near Defeat in Long Fight on Methods of Compulsion That are Being Adopted Important Amendments to the Law Demanded to Improve Women's Statuj 0 1 J IHREAIEN LIFE OF GOVERNOR SPRY OFUIA Mysterious Sign Received Ky Mail from LW.W.-Thousands of Letters Come Sir Tiiomas White Introduces Vote for ?75,000,00p Loan- ] Mistake in Estimates Loiulon. .March 17.-Tiie House of Common.s adjourned after 1 o'clock j this morninjf after a proti-acted de-; bate, nominally on the army estimates ' i)u( roally covering a wide range of , lo|ii(!K hK.'luding calling oilt married mt'n. It was announced that a conference 'will lie hold Saturday at the war offiCB between liigner military authorltiiis and recruiting commanders, when iiic wiiole reiiuirements of the navy in regard to men will be fully discuBsed and explained. It is stated that widespread agitation on the part of married men has already interfered somewhat with the war ofllce arrangements, but there is little doubt that the calling up of further groups of marrlfid men ha.s bePn only briiJAx, |)osli)onf years. There Is also a widespread feeling that the compulsion act should bi' extended to married men, as a considerable part ot the ill feeling among married men now being called is due to the fact that those who voluntarily enrolled under the Lord Derby plan must go into the army, while married men who declined tlie Invitation to enroll are allowed to continue in their civil, occupations. The feeling on this matter was reflected in the house on the vote for adjouniment. The government demanded an adjournment until Tucs-iday, but partisans of the married men urged a continuation of the session until the ciuestion of married, men was properly adjusted. The government got its wish but only after a division, which was carried by six voles. This is the most Herious division the coalition government has yet faced. Now lliat the wonteii oC Alberto liavH received the full franchise to vote and to hold public olfice, they are taking advantage of fnclr new status to press upon the provincial govt'rn-mcnt certain vital amendments which are necessary to the existing laws which will considerably Improve (he present legal status of women.
