British Parliament Opened
The King's Speech Was Unusually Brief—Finane and the
Question of the House of Lords Received  His Attention.
Loudon, Feb. 21. I'nrlmmrtit wuh
opened luruiully thin afternoon by
King Edwnnt. who wus aucuinpanied
by Queen Alexandra, und is now tully
orjianlzt.'tl and ready ior the work of
tbe throne.
Tho state opening was marked hy all
the pomp and pageantry associated
witb these occaatona since the nc
ewitiloii of Kill"*; Edward VII. The
royal progress through the troup-
lined streets from Uuckiughnm piilace
to tbe palace at Westminster, drew
the uaual huge crowds, but widespread aa hns always heen the Inter-
eat in thea-a functions, both among
the public and thotta personally participating lu them, today's ceremony
bad and attraction all lis own. Up-
permoat in the mind* ol the tlu.usinds
crease in the cost o( my navy." Ko-
eordtng the fact that the expenditures uuthorized by the last parliament werv beni)* incurred, and tbat
by a recourse to temporary borrow
tags, the speech declared, "arrangements must Im- made at the earliest
possible moment to deal witb the "financial situation thus created." This
waa taken na confirmation of Premier
Asquith'i. avowed determination to
regularize tbe present conduct of It
nuncial attains lieiore attacking the
house ot lords,
"My relation* with nil foreign powers continue to lie friendly," thc
speech continued. "The establishment
of the Union of .Smith Africa has
heen Hied lor the end of May, when
Ps new government will be constitut-
who wltnttrwed tho spectacle in ed, and soon afterwards its first

the forthcomiug tlglit    which  threat- j tlons.     1 nm sending     my   sou, the
eua the very existence of the hereditary house of peers and the conjee
ture as to whether they were spectators of the acts preluding historic
changes in centuries-old institutions
of Great Britain, The ceremony itself did not difler [rom scores nf previous state openings except in the
presence close to tbo throne of Prince
and Princess Henry of Prussia. The
former wore the uniform of au officer
of the British navy, of which he was
recently appointed an admiral-m the
fleet. Every corner of the chamber
waa Oiled and tbe varied colorings ol
tbe peers, bishops, and judge--; robes,
the court, diplomatic, nival and
military uniforms, with the beautiful gowns of richly dressed women,
mado a scene of brilliancy.
London, Fob. 21. King Edward
this afternoon opened in state tho
third parliament of his reign. In n
momentous speech from the throne
bis majesty outlined the plan of the
ministerial campaign against the
house of lords as follows:
"Recent 'experience has disclosed
serious difficulties due to recurring
differences of strong opinion between
tbe two branches of the legislature.
Proposals will be laid before you,
with ull convenient speed, to dellne
the relations between thc houses, the
control of tbe commons over tinance
and Its predominance in legislation.
These measures, in the opinion of my
advisors, should provide that ibis
bouse should be so constituted and
empowered as to exercise Impartially
iu regard to proposed legislation, the
functions of initiation, of revision
and, subject to the proper safeguards
of delay."
The King's speech proved to bo un-
usually brief, and made it plain that
thc work of tbe session would be
confined to tho matters of tinance
and the question of the bouse of
Tho hnnueial estimates for the coming year were next set forth: "These,
aald his majesty, "have heen framed
With tbo utmost desire lor economy,
but the requirements for the naval
defence of the empire made it necessary to propose a     substantial    in*
Prince of Wales, to make an extend
ed journey through my South Airi
can possessions, in the autumn, before the opening, ip my name, of the
of tho llrst legislature at Cape Town,
it is with peculiar interest uud pleasure 1, contemplate this visit, when
my son will imve the privilege, not
for the first time of inaugurating tbc
parliamentary life of a great united
dominion, and will convey to South
Africa, on behalf of myself and the
empire, our ardent prayer for thc
welfare and future progress of her
lu - conformity to an important
measure of lost year for extending the
legislative functions of the legislative council in India, and increasing
the number of their members, tnese
bodies have been elected and have
met. They have entered with good
promise upon the enlarged duties nml
responsibilities entrusted to them."
The reading of the speech occupied
only four minutes nnd at its close
their majesties retired und ihe scs
slon wns suspended for two hours.
The house of commons met tor business at 4 o'clock. Up to thc last
moment no one could predict with
any confidence the course of events,
nnd even as Premier Asquith ltd the
composite force into action, it appeared uncertain whether the pins of j
his army were levelled .tgnlnst tlie i
common enemy, or in the direction |
of himself.
The lirst business to ba transacted
in the house of commons was the
adoption, without division, of a motion settling the sessional order, pro
hibiting the peers from participating
in elections. At the conclusion of
this business, lho debate on tho address in reply to the speech from the
throne wns begun.
Premier Asquith made an enrlj' bid
tor the Irish vote by reiterating the
assertion thnt the removal of the
lord's veto wos a necessary preliminary to the discussion of home rule.
Premier Asquith said he hnd neither
received nor askod "guarantees from
the King."
in the course of the debate In the
house of lords on the    address ln re
ply to the King's speech. Lord Lans
downe, lender of the opposition, said
thnt. ii the new house ut commons
adopted the liuance hill the lords
WOlt)  ready   to      expedite  its  passage
although the opinion in regard to it
was unchanged. The proposed so-
queuce ol events wus clear, it? tlnld.
Kirst the liii'inee hill was to be disposed of then the veto power of the
lords was to go in order that the
way should he made clearer for home
rule. Lord Lansdownc expressed
umuzemeiii ut the audacity of th«
government assuming tbe right to
make such proposals on thc strength
of tin- recent elections, in which they
had obtained a majority only by re
lying upon parties which did not participate iu their councils.
"You think tbis u sufficient man-
: iluti' for pulling the constitution of
i this country to pieces, lor breaking
Up the union, ami .setting up a single chamber government," be said.
"I use the last expression advisedly,
because if the words of his majesty's
speech means anything at nil, that is
what they mean."
Lord Lansdownc insisted that the
government had obtained no such
mandate and declared that tbe opiu
fou of the house of commons wns
against the government.
In bis speech in the house of lords.
Lord l.nusdowne said that if the government wus nble to show that tlie
iipperhouse was constituted In a man
ner not conducive to the etllcicnt
discharge of its business, then the
peers themselves were prepared to co-
opiMnte iu finding a remedy, ir the
government was not prepared to do
this the lords were ready to draw up
proposals of their own denltng with
tlie question.
London, Feb, 21, Thc opinion of
some Liberals is thnt if there is to
be a general election the sooner the
better, Some predict that tne new
government will last only six weeks.
Mr. Winston Churchill was overheard
to remark: "The situation Is serious
hut I think we will bent the beggars
out yet."
London, Pel), 21. A meeting of all
the Irish Nationalists in the new
house of commons was held thin
morning to determine the party's at,
titude towards the governmental pro
gram. John Redmond, lender of the
Irish parliamentary party presided,
and thnt he is in a mood to tight tin-
less Premier Asquith clears tho way
for Irish aspirations, may be j-attier-
nl [rom his appeal to the people of
Ireland for party lunds, issued this
morning. "This appeal," snid Mr.
Redmond, "is vitally urgent by reason of the strong probability that
another dissolution of parliament
will be upon us immediately, perhaps
before Bnster," Today's meeting authorized Mr. Redmond to voice thfl
already expressed opinion of tbe party regarding tho policy that should
be pursued, hut suspended direction
on the final action to he taken until
the King's speech has been read and
the position of tbe government more
fully disclosed.

Wins the Title From "Battling"
Nelson in the Fortieth Kound
of Pieros Grueling
Richmond, Feb. 22. -His face battered to a pulp, his eyes closed, covered with blood, and .'tannerlng helplessly about the ring, "Battling"
Nelson was tmvnd from a knockout
in the fortieth round of hid fight with
Ad WolRdHt today, when Itofcrcc Kd-
die Smith humanely stopped nii unequal contest.
Nelson, game to the last, Htood In
thc centre of the ring, nnd though ho
could hardly raise his hands, ta-gged

led to his corner, heart-broken,
In the opposite corner of the ring,
the new light-weight champion of the
world, Ad Wnlgiwt of Cadillac, Mich,
was lifted to tin- shoulders of his
trainers, while thc crowd cheered.
Only once did Nelson have a chance
in the twenty-second round. With a
staggering right cross to the Jaw, he
staggered Wolgast, and before the
round closed he dropped Wolgast In
the middle of thc ring with a similar
blow. Tbroo seconds were counted
before Wolgaot regained his ftet. The
crowd prepared to leave the arena,
ns the word went from bench to
bench that another boy hnd fallen a
victim to the Dane, but In the next
round Wolgast recuperated, and from
then on slowly but surely wore Nei
son down. For 10 rounds before the
finish Nelson seemed bewildered, and
his blows were delivered as though
his arms were still. From the thirtieth round Nelson could hardly a&»
or hear. Tbc left .Hide of his face had
lost all resemblance to Its former
contour. He staggered and hung on.
In the thirty-seventh round h« was
all but out. In the thirty-eighth
round John Robinson, Nelson's second, wanted to throw the sponge into the ring, but Ahdul tho Turk, another of the seconds, tore it from
his hands, and throw it Into the

verge of tears, thnt his man wan
When the fortieth round came, Referee Smith asked Nelson if he wanted to quit, Nelson, unable to talk,
shook his head. After 30 seconds ot
the fortieth round had gone, Referee
Smith raised Wolgast's hand, mid thi
new light-weight champion wns made
Wolgnst outgeneraled and nil thm -

boy, mid galloped through the mud
tu his training quartern. Nelson was
taken out in thc arms of his seconds
As he was carried through the crowd,
he wns cheered for the grit and
gumcnesH he had displayed.
Referee Smith said: "Wolgast
fought Nelson nt his own game, and
heat him fairly and squarely. Net-
son complained at times of Wolgast's
butting, hut I paid little heed, and
It was simply a cose of one battler
getting the worst of a game where
both men were equally guilty.
"Hoth men fought the Name, but
one had youth, the power to come
hack, vigor, life, and all that go***
with it, while the 13 years of fighting
which Nelson hns gone through hail
sapped his strength nnd left him

Wolgast said: "My fight was tike o
training bout. Only once did he
bother me, and that was in thn
twenty-second round. Nolson hurt
me more hy hutting tnnn by anything else, and I felt funny Just for
a few seconds, I cannot say any

Urge linraipration
From severul quarters it Is reported that the immigration into British
Columbln In the course of tho prratun
year will he very considerable. There
are several circumstances that twin
to make this probable, From one
cause and another thin Province has
been extensively advertised during
the pits!, few years, both In the Dominion and the united Kingdom. The
certainty of n large amount of rail
way construction beiug carried on
will also attract population, while
thn possibility of getting good laud
in the dint nets that the new lines of
railway wlll mnke accessible wlll lead
to an Influx ot settlers.   The govern
ment is alive to the new requirements
j that thcee circumstance*-     win oring
i about, and it understood that the
estimates for public works In the die
tricts likely to be affected ny the
things wa have mentioned will be
much larger than iu any previous
year. Aliuough for .several years the
opening up of the northern regions of
Hritish Columbia will entail large
expenditures ou the government,
there should be good progress made
in the settlement ot those districts,
nnd ultimately they should contribute their fair share to the provincial revenue.
