Sept 16. Registering voters for the forth
eocntng Parliamentary elections, which will
commence, about the Uth of November, is
being prosecnted with great, diligence through-
oat the British Isles. At many puces women
formally demanded that their names be plaee-
eJ on the list as voters, on the gronna that
they possessed the property qualifications
prescribed by the Reform Bill, and the legal
aspects of the question as well as the extent
of the movement bars excited mneh public
interest on the subject. Over 6,0H) women
had claimed the right to be registered in
Manchester alone. Their demands were nrg-
ed in an able speech before tho registering
officials by Miss Lydia Becker. After argu
ment on both sides the elatm was disallowed.
Similar proceedings took place in other town)
in the same ease. Tho qnestion has finallr
been brought before the Judges of West
minster, and they have over ruled the applica
tion that women be registered as voters, on
the ground that an amendment to the Reform
Bill, which was passed in the House of Com
mons by Mr. Mill, which substituted the
words "men" and " person" for man, was
rejected. By this action the House clearer
vindicated the intent and purpose of the b-t
in this respect.
