Franchise Reform
Bill Will Pass
London, .Tan. 2". "I hope we shall

chancellor of the exchequer, today
told a committee of Suffragettes rep
resenting the working women of the

ward Grey, the foreign 6ecretarv. re
ceived at the treasury department
"I certainly shall do my very hest
to see that the amendment to the
franchise reform bill eliminating the
word Truth is passed by the house.
Since I have been in the cabinet I
hav become a more convinced sup
porter of woman's suffrage than pver
'M experience during the passing
of the Btate insurance legislation bus
persuaded me that one of the most
gross pieces or Injustice in public life
It is that women have no voice in the
determination of matters which af
fect them more closely than men.
Convinced of Victory.
"I am ronxinced that we shall Win
and win very soon "
The chancellor of the exchequer
then said that the Liberal government
was willing to stand or fall by Pre
P mier Asqulth's pledge that if the
house of commons approved the ex
tension of the franchise to women
the government would support it
ir Edward Qrey gave similnr as
surances to the deputation but warn
el the women (hat 'he opposition to
be overcome was verv formidable
and that it could not be overcome by
menace or personal annoyance.

London. Ian 23. The Immediate
consequences of the decision of the Hp
Turkish grand council to conclude K'1
peace with the Balkan allies will be Bg .';
the cessation of hostilities between BpV
Greece and Turkey and the surrender Br
ol the Turkish fortresses of Adrian-
ople, lanina and Scutari. At all three Est'
fortresses the Turkish garrisons will KU
withdraw with the honors of war. ft''
Difficulties may arise concerning
I the fate of Scutari as no one knows Bp!
tu whom it is to be surrendered, W . ,'
whether to th .Montenegrins, to a 5-
provisional Albanian government or
i to the representatives of the pow. KK

sists that he must enter Scutari at K
the head of his troops. Otherwise, he Ba
says, the reign of his family in Mon- BjL
tenegro is doomed, as he, contrary to Bri
the adice oi hiv generals, refused Bi '
to try to take Scutari by storm at Wb
the beginning of the war In order to
aoid the certain heavy losses which RiV
his small army would have suffered.
He preferred the temporizing policy mL
of laying siege to the fortress, and
shonltl Scutari for this reason be lost Wpi
t the Montenegrins, he alone will
be considered responsible. H
Turkish Envoys Depressed. W
The members of the Turkish eace
delegation in London show signs oC
depression, but they are determined
that the era of concessions must now
be regarded as finally closed
They say they are convinced 'hat
the powers will support them in re
jeering the demands of the allies for
,i n ar indemnity. W;
All fears of a resumption of tho K
war having been removed, the allies f.
are planning the withdrawal of large l
bodies of troops at an early date. The h.
delegates In Ejondon, however, t hi n I-: p
that a month may pass before tQe I
final signatures are put to the peace E?.
treaty, a6 the settlement of exact i
frontiers, the questions of indemnity W
and the guarantees in regard to the f
mosques and sacred places of Adrian- r
ople still have to be arranged Is.
