And now it appears, the British  North America Act does not permit  women to sit in the senate, so says'  the Minister of Justice.  Women had all but caught up with  privileged mankind before Sir Lomer  made his ruling on Friday. They  had followed them into the professions, into the political clubs, onto  ihe voters' lists, info the city councils, the legislatures, and- into, the  Commons itself. British Columbia,  which has led the provinces of Canada in the emancipation of women,  lias had a woman cabinet minister.  The past week witnessed the triumphant spectacle of a male" barrister  selecting a lady lawyer to conduct  his defence in a civil suit.  Disappointed men who have not  been calley to the dignity, the comforts and the emoluments of the  Senate have been known to refer to  it as "the old man's home"; som������  have referred to the members of the  Senate as "old women." Neither description has.been at all accurate,'for  che average age of the members oi  .lie Senate does not appear to-be very  much greater than that of the Commons', and-there are some- very'virile  personages in the Red Chamber.-'- ��������� ���������������������������  It is hardly likely that'the ladies  will, raise the cry of '.'sour grapes"  when referring to the senators.  If the ladies of Britain can be  peeresses' why .can't the " ladies of  3anada' be .senatoresses?  The government of the United States will'stand aside and , watch the  -.ountry being tied up by striking  miners. It may be a costly "test of '  .strength" for the government' ' of  that country.  - The result of the Nelson by-election on Wednesday was neither a  ^surprise to the Conservatives nor a  ^'.disappointment to the Liberals. Nelson had its' price, the building" of the  Ymir road; ;john Oliver agreed to  .the.figure and carried the election  in his vest pocket for days before the  :P0ll. :  '   This is the same road that    Premier Oliver practically refused to agree  .to build last summer.    Nelson    city  even offered! to assume a    consider-  -able portion/of the cost and the Do-  :minion Government was also to pay  a portion.    The Oliver Government's  portion would then have been around  ���������?1(>0,000.' .But a.by-election altered  'the'-situatlon in the eyes of   Premier  Oliver and he now agrees to build the  .road at once and    under    conditions  that it will cost the province $300,-  000 or three    times    what it    would  have cost last summer.    But a    few  ���������hundred thousand    is not    here nor  there with the    Oliver    Government  these days. r  Wnether or not    the  Government  -really intends    to build the road    is  open to doubt,    for it is    well-known  -that uieiii finances are not overflowing, and most of such promises usually fly with   the   winds.   The   new  ^member, Kenny Campbelly, promised  ������������������the electors that he would resign if  the Government did    not    start the  ���������road in two months But Grand Forks  'has intimate    acquaintance with preelection promises of resigning if certain things do n6t come to pass.  ���������;'���������'   Some'are !wonjt to try and    fasten  blariWforlhe defeat of the Conserva- J  tive cause on "Mr. Bowser, hut there ]  was never a chance for a Conservative against the six    Cabinet    Ministers' and two Government   "road contractors with big'money bribes.

The ladies  of Ireland may have something to say  in the matter.  SOVIET    GOVERNMENT    COMEDY  To find a husband, divorce him  on the same day, and a few hours  later to marry a -beggar from the  street would form the plot of a comic  opera which would outrange in improbabilities anything which W. S.Gilbert ever offered the-public. Yet  these are the facts of an actual inci-  dent as related by the London. daily.-  in the life of a most respectable Ru.Si  sian lady-:-(   -  "Her husband, a well-known merr  chant in Petrograd, had been mobilized by the Reds in    1919 and    sent  against Denikin.    After many adventures he escaped    and    by    gradual  stages reached this country.    Meanwhile his wife and    his    family   had  continued to    remain in    Petrograd,'  where they endured great hardships.  Only a few months ago was the husband enabled to get into touch with  hff. wife and to send her some money  through a friendly Bolshevik    courr  ier.      The main object was to get the  family out. of the clutches of the Com  missars.    The lady, a very energetic  person, discovered very soon that to  obtain an official permission to leave  was quite impossible.1  As regards an  escape over the frontier, as so   manv  ether poor people have done, she did  not want to take this' great    risk because of her three small children. At  last a friend sent her to one of    the  mysterious middlemen    who    simply  swarm around all Soviet institutions.  This important    person    carefully  went through the facts of   the   casV  and gave his judgment    in one   sentence:    'Quito easy, but you should  be a foreigner.'    The lady explained  that her husband was a Russian, and  that, therefore but she was interrupted: 'What does' that.-  matter?  You can divorce your husband, can't  you?' The lady, well -acquainted.with  the amenities'of Bolshevik divorce,  replied in the affirmative, but added  that this would not make her a foreign subject. ,!That need not trouble  you,' she was told, 'we'll soon find  yo;i a suitable husbaivl���������that is if  you can pay the price.'  "So,  in  the    most    mafter-of-1'aei  way, the bargain was clinched    am)  the miracle-worker began operations.  The first difficulty to bo    got    ovor  was the absence.of the husband,    According to Bolshevik law, instantaneous divorce is granted    only    when  both parties are present in court. The  miracle-worker immediately  produced an obliging friend who, for a consideration, was quite    ready to   play  the part of the real husband.    But in  Soviet Russia ^/.passport is more important than its owner himself. The  problem., of  providing the ._ spurious  'husband'  with the necessary proofs  of his identity -was ' most    elegantly  solved by. the ''miracle-^worker,    and  this without having recourse to such  vulgar means"as forgery. It was most  artificially done.    The    'husband' addressed a paper to the committee   of  the house where his wife lived    and  where he had but just    arrived;    he  asked for a    bath    certificate.    This  .-was duly entered    in    the    visitors'  book of the public bath he next went  to.    There'his'clothes suddenly disappeared, and the poor    victim    received  from  the    managements confirming tho fact.    lnra'  nude    condition he    was    brought back    home,  committee, on    the strength of    tho  bath certificate, delivered to him    u  new paper.     With this the 'husband'  went to    the    local    police    station,  whore    he    deposited    a    complaint  against persons unknown, and in exchange    for the   house    committee's  certificate received a new document  in proof of the fact that ho    had applied for a new passport..  After   this  all was easy.    Husband    and    wife  went to the Revolutionary    Tribunal  where in five minutes the whole business was settled. There was, though,  a moment 'of tension when the 'husband' could not remember his name,  and had to be audibly prompted    by  the;miracle-worker hovering in' the  background.  "Meanwhile    the    miracle-worker  had prepared a new 'husband' for the  divorced lady.    This was a    regular  inhabitant of the worst slums whose  name happened .".to have an    outlandish sound. "'By'a' wise manipulation  of certificates he  was     transformed  into a Lettish citizen, to whom    the  lady, was duly married by the    same  judge who had just pronounced- her  divorce.    But all was not yet in    order.    The three children,  according  to,law, retained Uieir father's    name  and nationality;Hhe,lady could leave  with her Latvian husband,-but   the  children had to.,f remain in    Russia.  The miracle-worker    made    light of  this new difficulty.   The next    morning he brought the whole 'company  again before  the' obliging judge    to  whom  the lady,; previously instructed, made the following speech: 'Here  are my three children,.     whose   real  father- I  only married yesterday.    1  appeal to  the   justice of  the    Soviet  law to repair the    injustice ��������� of    tho  Tsar's regime.' ^Two.most imposing  witnesses conjured'   up by the    miracle-worker immediately stepped "or-  ward and affirmed that the lady had  ���������stated the truth.    The judge    made  an impassioned    speech    about    the  merits of Communism,    and    declared that the Latvian    'husband'    was  the. legitimate father of-the    lady's  children.    After this there   were   no  more obstacles to  the family's    de-.  parture from the land of    the    Free  Russians.    The miracle-worker's fee  was  5,000,000  roubles���������quite  chean  considering    the    rate of    exchange  Needless to   say   that   the   Latvian  'husband' did not leave his cherished  Petrograd slum'at'all."���������Daily Tele-  raph.

SATURDAY, APRIL 8th  CHARLES RAY  in  "PARIS GREEN"  It is generally considered that the  -road on the north side of the river  to New Westminster is1 better than  the Yale road. The only bad place  spoken of is the hill at the red  -bridge, across the Stave. Repairs  however are being hurried along all  parts of the Yale road and it is hoped that it will be in good condition in  the course of a few days.  More acreage will be sown on  Sumas Prairie this year then ever before, as it is expected that the dyke  will prevent flooding, and give a  crop of 'bill-lesB" inosquitoeflV  Mr. W.'J. Cottrell was at the coast  this week on business.  Don't  overlook  Ker adv.  Brackman-  Abbotsford's brush artist says that  he is exceedingly busy these days  which speaks well for the looks of  the town, as spring'paint is the sign  of optimism and prosperity.  Mr. A. G.. Andrews who recently  disposed of the Cash firocery to Mr.  MacLeod, will devote his energies to  arming.  ''Why is your wife so   jealous ; o-  your stenographer?"  "She used to be my stenographer."  The things that a man intends to  do when he.gets time never help him  up the ladder of success.
