Do- herty, minister of justice, is consider- ing tho advisability of introducing an amendment to the criminal code whereby wife desertion will become nu immediately punishable offence. Howard T. Falk, secretary of the Win- nipeg associated charities, lias just returned from Ottawa 'where he arid W. it. Scott, an Ottawa lawyer, waited on the .minister of justice and urged tile necessity of amending the law iti the respect stated. The minister, says Mr. Falk, has not promised anything de-flu I te, but he has 'recognized the an- omaly of th-e existing code as it affects "wife desertion. to the criminal code as It stands HE said Mr. Falls, injury to the health of Tvi.Fa or child must result from deser- tion before tho husband can be ar- raigned on a criminal charge. This is fif "conformity with the code, which that actual injury to some person must be inflicted before there is any criminal case. As a conse- quence of this, we have frequently been informed by the crown prosocut. or that if 'wo want to use the criminal codo in a case of wife-desertion, must withhold aid from th-a family, and ]iersuadc all friends to .v.-itlihald aid also, so that actual injury to wife or child will result. "This being the state of affairs we are powerless. There Is no object in Imprisoning a man, which the only penalty tho criminal law imposes for especially if to get him Imprisoned 'we must inIIlet actual hardship. In Manitoba and most of tlie other provinces, gcod wife-deser- tion laws exist, which enforce aup- pprt as well as prescribe terms of im- prisonment for violation of them. But they -do not give juris- diction, and can consequently be laugh ed at. There is no effective ivay of dealing with wife-deserters, except by Dominion act. We are also seeking to have wife-desertion made an extra- ditable offence." Mr. Falk -has prepared a statement showing the causes of destitution in the cases in which Associated Charities extended relief during the month of September. As will be seen, desertion takes a high place. Causes of rlestitutioirin relief cases for the month of September, 1912: 3Q; sickness: general 14, tuberculosis 7, accident 1, cripple 1, total US; desertion and non-support, 20; husband: insane 5, in prison total 14: old age, 3; moral failing: in- temperance 4, immorality 1, laziness 2, total 7; miscellaneous 8'.

The Turks may continue to live in the Balkan) peninsula but the allied Balkan peo- ple are determined to prevent them from again ruling there. A significant evidence of this cvolu-. tion is a leading article in the Pat-1 ris, the official organ of ,the Greek government, which commenting on Mr. Ackland's speech in London, says: "It England wislics permanent peace in the Balkans she, must rccon- cile herself to the disappearance of the Ottomans.

Officers Disguised as Women The prospect of tho Greek occupa- tion of Saloniki has disintegrated the Turkish army defending the city. The fleeing soldiers are streaming in without arms, ragged and exhausted hy fatigue, hunger and cold. Amoag the fugitives arc a number of officers. Some of tire latter escaped disguised as women, wearing the Mohammedan veil. The soldiers arc utterly cowed and refused to join their companies. Ten officers on Monday sought to leave on a steamship for Constantin-j ople, hut the vessel was stopped by: a gun lircd from Port Kcratournou: and the officers taken prisoners hy the authorities. Four were put to death with 20 soldiers for abandoning their' posts. The city is short o! pro- visions. The residents of the suburhs are flocking panic stricken, making the chaotic conditions worse. The mosques, schools and churches anil all public buildings are packed j with refugees. I Numbers of wounded arc also ar-l riving.
