Protection or Women.
United Press Association—By Klectrio 0 Telegraph Dunedin, May 25 The Premier told a deputation from the Society for the Protection of Women and Children, that he was firmly of opinion that our laws should be brought up-to-date in respect of the period during which informations may be laid. He thought the time phpuld be at least three months, as in England, a&d would consider the propriety of making it even longer. In the ■meantime he was against the deputation's proposition that a girl on registering an illegitimate child should state tb) name of the father to the Registrar, because some girls might use it as a means of revenge. He thought, however, the girl might disclose the name to tho Registrar leaving the latter, before putting the name on record, to call on the person named and ask him to meet the charge.
