Mr. Itoaar Law, ha- made it nuit?

been eo materially altered that it in

in-.: Introduced t<? the House and thai
ih.r.f.r?* a Irish I.ill must be lntr?.
This ruling created a big lenaatlon in
Ihe House, an?i tho general Impression
??n?.n?,' memberi last night was that it
means farewell to the aspirations <>f
Ihe women for at this late period of th?*
prestos it would I??* impossible for the

this Parliament to the House of Lords.
On a Point of Order.
\ situation of profound gravity Is
- . i. arly eprung iii??n the House.
.?ni a few hours previously ;; deputa?
tion ?>r women had been a aimed in
ton**** of the utmost solemnity that the
p|? dgc "f a free vote in the House on
ii?. sulfrage question was t?> t><* ful?
filled, an?) now the whole mov. m?*nt is
t.. be "ddetracked on a point <>f ??nier.
Whatever view is taken of tho merits
? f th.* amendments, it is eiear that the
grievance fell by many women, anal ad?
raltted by sir Edward Grey and Mr.
Lloyd t.eorgo, will h?* ac?*a*ntuat?*d a
hut tJiedfold through this eleventh hour
decuri?n of the Speaker The fear is
that it will lead to a serious and wide?
spread outburst of resentment, in view
of the tangle into which the question
\ Cabinet council will be hold be?
to-day'a Parliamentary session
.-.ms. [t [g considered Inevitable that
tin government will drop tha* bill.
The Dally Chronicle" advises the
**overnm**nl to drop the press?t bin.
I hua sacrlfi? Ins; manhood suffrage, and
?!? ?? facilities for the imm?*diate dla
mtron of alternative bills t*oa**a**espond?

the assumes that any bill so passed

ould have enjoyed as any sua.oissful
mnnilmshl ??f the preaeni bill in re
taped to the operation of tha* Parlia
inent a? t and at the same tim<- adopt
Harold Bakers hill for the abolition
of plural voting Which hn*a already been
i>as.?<?l its second reading
First Victory Is for "Antis."
Another evil augury for success t?>
day was tho result of the prelimlnai .
skirmish on the franchise bill in the
House Of Commons last night. Th ?
amendment proposed by Andrew Boner
i.aw. th-- (?.?position leader, to reject
h?' Premier's time limitations in the
i?*bate was defeated by a vote of 230
to Ii?.. indicating a majority <?f ?IS be?
hind Mr. Ascpilth.
In moving the adopti-.n <>f th?- time
tl ble. ?ho Premier said that opinion nn
\? ?.man suffrage was .*-?> sharply divided
n both sides of the HoUSC that it was
mt?<?*?mt?1** for any government t?? pro
pi se tho enactment of vote for aromen.
While be himself was a strong op?
ponent >f the policy, he realised that
this war a groat hardship ?m support
01 s of the movement. Therefore, with
the full consent of the Cabinet, he had
? ? ? ided to leave the question to the
fin ? fudgin?at of the House.
