New Franchise Bill
New Franchise Bill. REFERENCE TO WOMAXS SUFFRAGE. In the House of Commons on Monday. Mr Asquith. in asking leave to introduce a Bill to amend the Parliament and Registration Act, 1916, said unless statutory provision was made before the expiration of next month the present Parliament would expire at the end of next month, and they would have to face the necessity of a, General Election on a register nearly two years old. The Bill suggested that the life of the present Parliament should be extended by another eight months to 31st May, 1917. It was clear also that provision must also be made in the meantime for bringing into existence some kind of register of a fresher and more representative character than that which now existed. That would form the object of another Bill to-morrow. It was not possible, under existing circum- stances, to more than construct a rough and ready makeshift to meet an unprecedented emergency. Since the present register came into force the war had made the greatest dis- placement of population in our history. Millions of our best men were out of the coun- try fighting in the various theatres of war, and at home there had been an enormous shifting of the population. The Government in its Bill did not propose to ask Parliament to alter the qualifications for the franchise. There was a simple, drastic, and. they might say. an heroic proposal to enfranchise a'l soldiers who were fighting for the country (cheers). From the military point of view there were the gravest difficulties and the most serious objections. Mr Churchill: Is that the opinion of the Secretary of State for War? Air Asquith I am speaking of the opinion of the military authorities (cheers). Further;, the moment they began general en- franchisement on those lineu of State service they were brought face to face with another most formidable position, namely, what were they to do with the women ? He could not be suspected of having any special desire or pre- disposition to give women the suffrage, but he had received representations presenting not ouly a reasonable but an unanswerable case (cheers). They said tliev were perfectly con- tent if the existing franchise were not altered to abide by the present state of things, but if new chides were to be brought into the- elec- torate on grounds of State service, women— and who can deny their daimP-women had rendered an effective service in the prosecution oi the war as any other classes of the com- munity (cheers). As a life-long opponent of women suffrage, lie could not deny the women's caim (chews). Therefore it seemed to him and his colleagues that nothing could be more injurious to the best interests of the country, nothing more damaging to the prosecution of the war, nothing more fatal to the concentra- tion of effort, than to have the flood I-ates of controversy opened, and all these questions discussed in and out of the Houss at the pre- sent time. At the same time they realised that war conditions had led to disqulifications which ought to be put right. What the Government proposed was, first, that there should be no alteration in the franchise itself. Secondly. that provision should be made for the altera- tion of registration procedure so as to bring into force a new register oii-tlie existing basis of qualification by 31st May next. They pro- posed that the period of qualification should l»e postponed from loth July to 1st November, so as to make the register as fresh as possible. To meet the artificial disqualiifcations produced by the war the Government proposed provi- sions for preventing persons who had left their homes for wa.r work from being disenfranchised in consequence of war work undertaken since October 1st, 1915. The Government would give as wide a definition as possible to the words "war work." it would include soldiers and sailors, persons engaged in mine-sweeping, and other work under the direction of the naval and military authorities, ambulance work, the prisoners of war and interned civilians, per- sons who had been compelled to change their abode owing to the destruction of their homes by hostile bombardment, or works carried out for home defence, and. finally, the munition workers. The Government- proposed to extend the Electors' Disabilities Act, 1914, so that war workers who had not occupied their qualifying premises would not be disqualified owing to want of residence. They would also inciude persons who had given up their qualifying pre- mises in order to do war work. They proposed further that soldiers, sailors, and war workers who were on the existing register whether their qualifying premises were retained or not, and that war workers who were in course of qualification, at whatever stage it was inter- rupted by their leaving home for war work, should be entitled to registration "as if their course of qualification had attained its normal end. That would have the effect of preserving the qualification of a very considerable portion of our soldiers and sailors and munition work- ers. It was intended to have that result. When they came to the Committee stage the House could see how far these provisions could bo extended. The Government believed that the plan they proposed not only proceeded on the lines of least resistance, but offered very large safeguards against disqualification of war workers. They were at a .stage oi the war which more than ever required the concentration of ali con- cerned upon the daily conduct oi the struggle, and if the Cabinet or a Committee had to dis- cuss the ten thousand questions which must arise on franchise proposals they must give up altogether tlieir primary duty. He appealed to the House, therefore, to look at the Bill which the Government would introduce from that point of view. Sir Edward Carson &3¡Ù even if they had a register, Irs own view was that there ought not to be an election at the present time. They ought, however, to have a register in readiness for an election, and he thougnt the Govern- ment we-re asking to much in propos ng to post- pone the election for eight months. They were doing a grave injustice to the soldiers and .sailors serving in the war by refusing to con- sider whether they ought to have the franchise or not (hear. hear). Sir Charlc> Henry Does the right lion, gen- tleman refer to soldiers and sailors of all ages? Sir E. Carson: Certainly. I refer to all ages. It a man is good enough to fight for me 110 iii good enough to vote for me (cheers). Mr W. Thorne One gun one vote ('aughter) Silr E. Carson aid. he could see that they were at a critical stage of the war in which they might, and lie hoped they could, expect happy developments even in the near future, and he was very anxious to get e register, it should be brought into force as soon as it oould be got ready. Leave was given to introduce the Bill, and I it was brought in by the Solicitor-General and read a first time.

Route March Drinks. NOVEL PROSECUTION AT MERTHYR. A curious case was heard at Merthyr on Friday arising out of a route march of the Merthyr and Dowlais Volunteers. Daniel Morgan, ownwer and licensee of the Station Hotel, Merthyr Vale, was summoned for Belt. ing, through a servant, intoxicating liquor to a number of persons by whom it was not paid for, contrary to the Orderof the Central Con- trol Board. Liquor Traffic. George McKenzie, the resident manager, was summoned for sup- plying the liquor and Joseph Barnasconie was summoned for treating. There was also sum- mouses for allowing credit against the land- lord and manager. Mr C. Kenshole. Aberdare, defended Mr Barnasconie. and Mr C. B. James represented the other defendants. The Chief Constable stated that Mr Barnas- conie was second in command of the local Volunteer Forces. The Merthyr and Dowlais Volunteers on July 2nd went on a recruiting march from Merthyr to Treharris. A haJt was made at the Station Hotel, and the men taken in in batches. Mr Barnasconie ordered drinks and intoxicants and minerals were supplied. When seen by Inspector Roberts, Mr McKensie said. "Mr Barnasconie called here and ordered 120 drinks and told me to send the bill to Major James." To Inspector Phillips Mr Rarnasoonie said, "It is on the authority of Major James. the officer commanding, who asked me to order them. I asked him regard- ing the Control Board Order, and he said, 'It is ai! right. Tell them to send the bill to me.* I ordered the drink and rations." Inspector Roberts, Merthyr Vale, spoke te having seen the men enter the Station Hotel in three batches. Mr C. Kenshole submitted that the order was never intended to apply to cases of that kind. Major F. T. James, the commanding officer of the Y ohmteers, faJd he thought he was act- ing within the law. The day was very hot and dusty, and the men were in need of refresh- ments. The Stipendiary said the circumstances in the case were very exceptional, and there was no deliberate intention to ignore or despise the Act. The cases would be dismissed on pay- ment of costs.

Tiny crossed Llandyfriog silwav bridge and went on the *'armarthea Mde. They tested the spot where they wer giing to bathe, and the depth was about two o: three feet. Whilst she was dressing the little girl, she heard Mr Nell and the young boy laughing in the water, and the boy ciiighing; tbtn the hurried to the bank. thinking the toy war. coming up to be dressed. When witness got to the bank she saw their heads, and she at first thought they were floating. At this time they were some distance dewn, near the bridge. Witness went into the river and swam towards them, but saw nothing. She did not realise that anything serious was happening. Some boys oil the bank toM witness that the deceaseds had gone down, and witness thought they meant that they had gone down stream. Witness swam about the spot where she had last seen them, but could see nothing, so she swam to the bank. She shouted to the boys to go to fetch ropes, and the boys ran. but did not come back with ropes. Witness met Mrs Roy Evans, who asked some boys near if they could swim. In about ten minutes a rope was brought which was tied round witness, andshe went in again, but eould see nothing. The dec-eased boy could swim a little. Mr Nell wae a good swimmer. Mr H. B. Vaughan Evans, barrister-at-law, i identified the bodies. David William Ree>. a servant man at Dolaa Irrm. stated that lie saw a party of four from Maesyreithin bathing near the bridge. The boy and the man came down towards the | bridge, and they were both swimming. He saw Mr Nell seize hold of a branch about six j yards from the bank, and the branch broke. The boy was swimming by Mr Nell's side. Wit- ness heard Mr Nell tell the boy to catch hold of I hi> .shoulder. Mr Nell at this time was swim- | nnng. but disappearing at times, and witness thought they wore playing. Griffith Owen, of Werniaeli Cottage, aged 11 stated the boy caught in Mr Nell's shoulders, but bis grasp gave way and he went under water, but soon came up again. Mr Nell then caught bold oi the boy ax if lie was trying te save him. but could make no headway. so both disappeared. He ran for help as sion as he realised that something serious had happened.
