WOMEN' AND THE FRANCHISE THE SMALL MAJORITY by which the Suffrage Bill was do: fcaled in Ihe British House of Commons points (o [he facl Uinl female franchise is gaining in-popularity. That the inove- 'mcnt is retarded from becoming effective may sjfely be put rfowii to Ilic insane (acUcs of thai band of nuiiien known si's the "milifanl suffrogetles. each of whom (o out-Herod (he other in a bid'for notoriety, There arc, of course, many old-fashioned prejudices which in the enfranchising of women the lumd of au iconoclast, in A metaphorical.sense, destroying, as Mr. Asquillv viewed it, the virtues of chivalry, courtesy, and inter-dependence of the sexes. But there is no reason to suppose that these things will ncces- jsurily come about when women are given the opportunity of becoming live members in the realm of politics. In dealing with economic measures women will prove, cf 'much benefit. This is evidenced by the deliberations of the Na- tional Council of Women" at Jifdiilreal. There are certain prob- lems with which are more in sympathy with anc! they arc in a better position than most men to deal with a good irany of them. It is noteworthy in looking at the division list lo see that Hie Knbor members of Parliament voted solidly in favor of granting women the franchise. So far as economic problems are con- corned as they effect the. masses one views in this an apprecia- tion pf the usefulness of women in helping lo deal with Ihem. Judging from the signs of the timss it will not he long be- for; the'Women of the British Isles are, accorded the suffrage.

If men ;no careless iilioul bundling Ihe meat and throw it on Ihc lloor caielcssly the in- spector has the right lo demand Iheir dismissal. The raw meats are then wrapped preparatory lo shipping. Here the inspector musl again exercise great care to see that the meat is nol in- feclcd while being wrapped. The material used for wrapping must bear his stamp before it can lie used, the clothing of the employees must be sanitary and Iheir hands clean. Acording to Or. Knglisli moat inspection is still in its in- fancy and Ihe ncxl decade will see much progress along thai line. He goes still farther by saying every fanner should be forced lo briny his animals to a public slaughter house main- tained by the. gmcrnmcnt. These details emphasize the importance of the institution of at least a municipal abattoir. The devising of moans for eslab- lishing a packing plant is one which iias been urged in tlvso columns.

AMATEUR THEATRICALS THE LOCAL MOVEMENT which lias so far materialized in the -prospect of the "Country Girl" being placed on the boards of tiie Majestic Theatre nest week should serve ns on encouragement for the continuance of such societies as the Amateur Dramatic. That they produce much that is of benefit to society in general may be regarded as generally accepled. the cultivation of the aesthetic side of life there is a great deal lo be said .in their favor and they come entirely within the of what is ideal community work. Mutual interests mid co-operation go a long way towards making for success, and the stride from ''Billec Taylor'" to live more ambitious presentment of Hie "Country Girl" is only n proof of (his. In Ihe social life of a people amateur associations for tltc furtherance of those things which are okin lo v.hat Scottish pro- fessors call the "Humanities" go a long way-in bringign out local taicni, creasing scqusiniar.ces, and helping out tbwards that camaradcris which serves to link society. The newcomer is strange lo the city and who is possessed of a good voice or of t'.iealrical ability is drawn towards such associations, and finds his lot a good deal more congenial than it otherwise might have been. Irrespective of the good cause for which the play is to he produced il deserves support and encouragement for the rea- sons we have mentioned.. Amateur performances come under a different heading to those professional, and in dealing with the inntlcr as we have done we feel jus-lined that we are supportinf that Jielps lo give the city of Lcthbridge a wholesome tone It .would he pleasing lo see a good deal more of such effort.

THE NECESSITY FOR MEAT INSPECTION THAT VEKY LITTLE is known by the public regarding mcnl inspection and the powers entrusted lo government meat in- Fpcclors is tiie opinion of Dr. niiglisii, in.iiiu.uii At the Sv.if.( Canadian Company at Edmonlon. Wben these arc properly recognized the necessity of meat inspection under ap- proved lines is manifest. Taking the fact that meat is an article consumed dsily hy every member of a population over Ihe age of babyhood, there is much need for Ihe necessary minute in- spection, II is a curious slate of things that meal which is exported from this part of the province has lo undergo Ibe essentially strict scrutiny laid down hy the Dominion Act, while that consumed is free from surh test.
