Humphries, president of the WlHard W.C.T.U.. was most en- thusiastic, over the announcement, saying that' it was what the women had ibeen working, for, for a long time, and felt that every woman in Lcth- bridge would be glad to hear of it. "It in something, 1 am sure, we are ai'i In favor, said Mrs. Humphries. Mrs. M. K. Kaake, president of the I Central W.C.T.U., was particularly de- lighted at the announcement. She 'heartily in accord with the Premier's statement, _and. believes that it .will mean'a- world good for the prov- ince. "We lia've a particularly f class of-women in Alberta, I am sure, will ,lber their j new rights, when'they receive them, with sood to all." The presidents-of the two other men's organizations of the city, Mrs. llobinson, Regent of the Daughters of the Empire, and Mrs. ,1. F. Simpson, the. Women's Civic club, both declined to express opinions, al- though they were interested in the an- nouncement. The matter is somewhat out of the jurisdiction of these two organizations. Mrs. K. N.

I would like to think that the pioneer in this." Mayor Hardic Agrees Mayor Hardie said: "The anounue- ment is entirely in accord with my views. I see no reason why women should hot have the vote.

He is seen in the shadow'of the guns in provincial matters, was received of the ilaaship Iron Duke addressing the crew, with a good deal of satisfaction by many of tlie women, and also many of the men, in Lcthbridge. The announce- ment is to the effect that a govern- ment measure will be brought ai the next session of the provincial house, facing wofflcm on an absolute eiiuullty with men in the province. This means that not only will wo- men be able to vote in provincial el- ections, but that they will also Imve tlie right to seats in the legislature, which ia a very pronounced step the direction of complete woman-suf- frage.
