Government Is Blamed for
. Act of House of Lords.
Xady Rhondda Leads Fight Which
May Result in Overthrow of
Lloyd George.
LONDON, July 8. Coalition mem
bers of parliament are manifesting
alarm as to what effect the refusal
to allow peeresses to sit in the
house of lords may have on the
votes of women at the next general
election. Should women in any large
numbers vote against the govern
mental candidates it is certain that
many of them would be defeated,
and probably Premier Lloyd George
would no longer be able to com
mand a majority in parliament.
Therefore they are anxious that the
government be not saddled with
responsibility for a decision which
was made by the lords themselves
and in which the government was
not openly involved.
Women Leaders Determined.
Viscountess Rhondda and leaders
of the women's movement generally
are determined that the government
shall be saddled with the respon
sibility which belongs to it and not
bo allowed to shirk it if they can
help it.
Lady Hhondda herself says that
the decision to exclude peeresses
from the upper chamber was vir
tually that of the government- and
' not of the house of lords. She points
out that the original house of lords
committee on privileges decided by
seven to one in favor of the right
of peeresses to vote in the house.
Ordinarily such a decision, sup
ported by such a majority, would
have been adopted by the lords
without question. But the lord
chancellor, Lord Birkenhead, a mem
ber of the cabinet, intervened with
an. amendment referring the matter
back , to the committee for recon
sideration. And reconsideration by
a committee which in the interval
had been strengthened by lords of
Lord ' Birkenhead's own way of
thinking, resulted in reversing the
seven-to-one decision. The com
mittee decided, 20 votes to four, that
peeresses should not sit and vote
in the house of lords.
Chancellor Held to Blame.
"It seems pretty certain," says
Lady Khondda, "that had it not
been for the lord chancellor women
otherwise qualified would not 'be
excluded from the house of lords
on the ground of sex."
The sex disqualification removal
act starts with the opening general
ization. "A person shall not be dis
qualified by sex or marriage from
the exercise of any public function,"
and was loudly acclaimed as wom
en's new charter of liberty. But
the act, which purports to give
equal opportunities for men and
., women, Lady Rhondda points out,
has availed women nothing when
challenged. Women in the civil
service have been refused the same
rights as men. "Women doctors in
the employ of municipalities have
been deprived . of their positions
act specifically stated that mar
rlage should no longer be a bar
to public service.
The government has made many
thousands of enemies, Lady Rhondda
says, by its failure to support its
own act. "The question today is,
says Lady Rhondda, "does the sex
disqualification removal act mean
what it appears to mean, or was it
simply a clever fraud perpetrated
on a section of the community new
to political dodges by an unscrupu
: lous government?"
than any of the others, as at last
reports another blaze had entered
that company's Davis creek camp.
British Columbia Situation Is Re
ported Somewhat Better.
VICTORIA, B. C July 8. While
the forest fire situation on Van
couver island and the mainiana
coast of British Columbia was re
ported somewhat improved tomght,
fear was expressed that the flames
might be whipped into renewed fury
by a strong wind picking up in dis
tricts already ablaze.
In an effort to lessen the flame
hazard, Lieutenant-Governor W. C.
Nichol issued, this afternoon, a
proclamation forbidding logging op
erations in -the affected territory
until the danger is averted.
Settlers in the fire-swept Mer-
ville district were hurrying into
Courtenay, efforts to control the
flames having been abandoned. At

care of the refugees. Premier John
Oliver announced) that the soldier

trict was reported as improved, with
all fires under control. Fires which
have been raging, at Cowichan lake,
threatening valuable timber also
were reported checked. .
No further serious outbreaks had
been reported late today at any
place in the province, but' small
fires were springing up in many
localities. With thousands of men
released from the logging campB,re
newed efforts will be made to keep
the flames from reaching - serious
The damage to standing timber
has been heavy, but no definite esti
mate of the loss was made.
Chief Forester Caverhill declared
the situation tonight to be still "ex
tremely critical."
Fires at Comox, Campbell river
and Myrtle point, on Vancouver is
land, threatened to clear every
thing ibefore them, he said. Govern
ment fire-fighting forces through
out the province were working at
maximum pressure, and airplanes
were being used to rush pumps and
supplies to the danger centers.
A total of 291 additional fires was
reported in advices reaching the
forestry department today.

Inventor of New Diving Suit
Claims Work Can Be Done at
' 2 75-Foot Depth. ,
NEW YORK.June 28 (Special.)
The steamer Blakeley Is here taking
on part of the equipment to he used
in the attempt to cut through three
decks of the Lusitania and raise to
the surface $5,00,000 in gold from
the strong room and the purser's
safe, said to contain $1,000,000 In
gold and jewelry. ' v
H. F. Leavitt, president of the
Leavitt-Lusitania Salvage company
and inventor of the diving suits for
work under 275 feet of water, plans
to go to the point off Kinsale head,
where the Lusitania lies.
"If the weather is pleasant," he
said, "we will cut the treasure out
of her in three weeks. Storms or
bad weather- may delay it, but 21
days of good weather will see the
Job completed.'
The stop in New York harbor Is
to take on board a 30-ton boom,
which will be laid on the water as
a kind of platform when the effort
is made to haul to the surface the
20-ton safe in the purser's cabin.
The difficulties in the way of sal
vaging the treasures of the Lusi
tania have been investigated, and
pronounced to be insurmountable
by. many engineers. The profit to
the salvagers, even though the pro
ject were successful, had ' been
doubted because of the many claim
ants and because of the many claims
sitions Involved in quieting titles.
The depth of 275 feet is an insuper
able bar, in the opinion of most ma
rine engineers, because of the fact
that, while divers have explored at
that depth, none has been able to
work so deep.
Sea's Pressure to Be Overcome.
Divers encased in'a rigid shell
of metal and hard rubber to prevent
mem irom Deing crushed by the
pressure at such great depths. Mr.
Leavit says that he has been able
to overcome this obstacle by a div
ing suit of his own invention, which
resists the pressure of the water and
enables the man to work at great
aepins. as tor the claims of own
ers, heirs, the ship company or the
insurance companies to the treasure,
if it is raised, Mr. Leavitt said that
he would take his chances in the
international salvage court.
"I believe that we will get by far
me greater part of the value of the
treasure," he said. "Any salvage
court will allow it to us. We have
made no arrangement in advance
with owners, shipping companies,
insurance companies or the British
admiralty, and we do not need to,
because a salvage company has the
absolute right to proceed on its in
itiative in the case of a vessel sunk
so deep and sunk so far from shore.
Our rights will be taken care of
thereafter in the courts.
British marine enginees have ar
gued from the theory that the ter-
riffic pressure of the water at the
depth of 275 feet or thereabouts to
which the Lusitania sunk, must have
crushed her like an eggshell. Mr.
Leavitt, on the contrary, holds that
the water, forcing its way into the
Lusitania as it sunk, kept the pres
pounds on land. At that depth
under the water their effective
weight would be 75 pounds."
These suits, which are metal forts
with jointed limbs and heavy glass
portholes for sight, are equipped
with' tanks to supply oxygen and
with caustic soda to take up the
carbon dioxide. In an ordinary
suit the diver would be smashed at
that depth as if a building had
fallen on him. If he escaped crush
ing, he would probably be killed by
the "bends," a disease induced by
pressure,, as he was lifted to the
As long as the special suit does
not leak, however, there is no dan
ger of bends, because the pressure
is normal. On this account, the
diver may be hoisted at once to the
surface without danger. "Bends"
is due to the absorption of nitrogen
and other gases by the blood in
order to increase the blood pressure
and body pressure as increased
pressure is put on it from the out
side. This does no harm while the
pressure is continued, but if sud
denly released by elevation to the
surface, the nitrogen dissolved in
the blood escapes as a gas, filling the
body with hubbies and often causing
death. It would take many hours
to raise a diver safely from a 200
foot depth in an ordinary suit, even
if he were not killed outright.
Mr. Leavitt said that his expedi
tion was being undertaken at a
total cost of about $160,000 as
against the prospect of the lion's
share of $5,000,000.
"Some big financiers have sought
to interest themselves in its during
the last few days," he asserted, "but
it Is too late. I was offered $550,000
for the proposition as it stood, but
refused. The investors wh6 have
put up the money to back the ex
pedition are all middle-class people
of moderate means."

Nitroglycerin to Be Used.
Great wrecking concerna like the
Merritt-Chapman company have
studied and then dropped the Lusi
tania venture, believing the gods
were against any successful salvag
ing operations. The idea of raising
the ship itself was never considered
feasible, and it is not being at
tempted by Mr. Leavitt and his ex
pedition. The purpose is solely to
make big holes In the three decks
which lie over the safe and strong
room, and then lift up the safe and
the boxed gold through these holes
The decks are to be opened by
nitroglycerin. The great difficulty
of this, pointed out at the offices
of the Merritt-Chapman company,
was that the general experience in
dynamiting steel ships had been
that the explosion ripped and
twisted the decks and other steel
work so that the result, instead of
being a hole, was an unmanageable
mass of ragged steel.
"We will not use dynamite, but
nitroglycerin," said Mr. Leavitt.
"Dynamite will not explode under
the pressure imposed on it at the
depth of the Lusitania, but nitro
glycerin will. It will not twist
everything tip, but will cut through
the decks like a knife. When holes
have, been made through the three
decks the safe will be blasted from
its fastenings and will then - be
hoisted to the surface with the aid
of the boom.

Receipts from interstate bridge

Though delinquent tax collections
