adoption ol the time table for the
debate on tlle Frianchise Reform
Bill in the House of Commons.
The Premier said opinion on wo-
men suffrage w's so sharply divid-
ed on bo'h sides of the House that
it was impossible for any Govern-
,nent to propose tlhe enactment of
Votes for Women. Therefore with
the full consent of the Cabinet he
had decided to leave the question
to the free judgment of the House.
James Lowtlier speaking of the
House of Commons made a pro-
nouncement which possibly is olm-
inous of the fatte of women's suf-
frage amendment. The Speaker
said the gencr;il ;ule of Parliament
was that if the form and substance
of the Bill were materially chang-
ed by amendments it should he

SATURDAY 'JAN. 25, X9g3.
The benefits provided for by
' the British Insurance Act be-
came available on the 15th of
this month. The question was
whether the recalcitrant attitude
of the British Medical Associa-
tionLeaders would make the Act
in any degree unworkable. On
the Iith inst. Mr. Lloyd George
was able to state Ithat in every
district a sufficient number of
Doctors had agreed to serve to
make it possible to carry out the
work called for by the Act-
15,ooo medical men having then
sent in their names. It is a pitx
that the rulers of such a fine pro-
fession should have lowered the
prestige of so honourable a body
as the British Medical Associa-
tion. When the Bradford Doe-

"Couldnt that roof wait till after

thus:- "The extreme gravity
of the election campaign here
may be judged by the fact that
Unionists have now ceased to
publish obituary notices in the
papers. They are determined
that the enemy shall not mrnow

have had none to publish lately.
They are looking after the deli-
