Parliamentary Gossip.


Wellington, August 15 Ministers do not propose to introduce legislation to give effect to the vote of the House lately taken on Sir J. Hall's motion m favor of female suffrage. They will, however, shortly be dealing with a Bill to slightly amend the electoral laws, and advocates of the rights of the fair sex will probably make an attempt; to attach to exercise it a clause giving ladies the right to the franchise m future elections. It is understood that negotiations are going on between Government and leading members of the Opposition with a view to arranging for an early prorogation. Ministers, it seems, are prepared to give some kind of guarantee that the new Parliament will be called together about the beginning of April, the point for which t!i# Opposition have be,en contending all along, on condition that no factious resistance to the Estimates is shown. In all probability something will be definitely decided upon m the course of a day or two.
