Tbe Tribune acquits Japan of any

the subject, but it admits that the fanatical elemenl is b danger, It is obvious, the paper declares, that England, as au ally, may play a great pan

Laurier Extends Citizens' Rights to All
British Subjects,
Ottawa, Dec. 22.���Sir Wilfrid Laurler
moved the second reading of the Naturalization Bill. The existing law was
lhat naturalization conferred upon
aliens hi any part of the itritish empire was effective only, and grave po-
liiical and civil rights only In the territory covered hy the legislature which
enacts the law. An alien naturalized
in Great Britain only received tbe
rights within the limits of the United
Kingdom. It was the same thing In
Canada, in Australia, or any of the colonies. The object of the bill was to
do away with the three-years' residence which Is now necessary under
the, law. In the ease of any one coming to Canada wtio was naturalized ia
any of the colonies, all that he had to
now would be to comply with the formalities of the law, take the oath of
aiepiance, have the certificate recorded, and then he became a British subject.
Dr. Stockton said he wanted to see
the law so that when a man was nal-
FS-lsed In any part of the British empire ho ought to be a British subject
throughout the length and breadth of
the British empire. The subject was
one which should come up at the colonial  conference in  April  next.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said that the
subject did engage the attention of the
conferences or 1897 and 1902, but
nothing was done.
Big  Building    Boom    in    Prospect for
Next Year.
Winnipeg. Dec. Tl.���Ex-Mayor May
of Edmonton, in an interview said today: 'Edmonton will increase ln pop-
u'ation next year more than it has In
Uie last three years. I think Bhe will
add 8000. There will be, in my opinion, 15,000,000 worth of new buildings,
at least. The new parliamentary
buildings are estimated to cost a million; the new postoffice a quarter ot
a million; a pork packing plant half
a million; a new brewery a quarter of
a million, and the new courthouse
about a quarter of a million. The city
corporation will lay some two milea
of street paving and there will be six
or seven miles of electric street railway constructed.
"To all this work you may add leas
pretentious buildings and residences,
incidental to the genera] growth ot
���be city."
Hicks' Thrilling Captivity.
Bakersfield, Cat., Dec. 22.���"Hick*

He reported that the sudden Introduction ot the light did not affect bis

Stands Between France

Home, Dec. 22.���lt having been currently reported that all attempts to
reach au understanding with France
will be ugeleBB If Papal Secretary ot
State Merry del Val remains ln office,
It was ���eml-offlclally stated today that
the pope has determined to retain him
and thus keep his word given to Merry
del Val when he conferred the red hat
upom him. ,
Upon that ocegbion the pontiff remarked: "It ls pleasant to think that
you will be of powerful assistance to
us so long ae life lasts.'*
On the other band, the enemies of
tbe papal secretary- of state assert that
France looks upon him as being prejudiced aud compromised, and that as it
Is impossible to change the pope, there
must be a change in the papal secretary of state, sucb as occurred under
Fopes Plus VII and Plus VI, when the
secretary of state was often removed
until Cardinal Consalvl, who was made
papal secretary tn 1801, concluded the
concordat  with Napoleon I.
The names of Cardinals Vlnconxo,
Vanulelll, Agilardl, Satolli and Ferratl
are mentioned as candidates for the
Rome, Dec. 22.���The feeling of the
populace hare ts so strong against
mJ* vutlean in connection with the dispute wllh France that the authorities
employed the whole police force and
have the entire military garrison under arms to prevent a demonstration
arranged for the purpose of acclaiming the republic outside tbe French
embassy. Experience has taught that
political demonstrations with apparently disinterested objects often lead here
to unforseen and undesirable resultb
Hence strong measures were taken to
repress a possible dangerous outbreak
ot anti-clericalism.
The streets and biidges leading to
the Vatican were occupied by the
tloops and traffic were stopped. Troops
were stationed in the Plaza Farnese,
where the French embassy is situated.
Large crowds, composed mostly of
students, loafers and the dregs of the
city, gathered In the afternoon. They
at first tried to reach the Vatican but
found everywhere a line of bayonet^
opposlug them. Several rushes were
made, and there were shouts of "Death
to the priests!" "llown with the pope!"
and "Long live France!" Thc soldiers
stood their ground firmly and uoue of
ih-- crowd passed Uieiu. Some of the
more demonstrative were arrested.
Then the mob tried to reach the embassy, but troops cordoned the streets
1-ading to lhe Plaza Fnrnese and prevented them. Several charges wen-
made. The crowd was never allowed
to gather streugth.

It is stated will precipitate a strike.
The railroads have offered 4 cents increase. Three thousand men are af
fected and they have asked that their

facturers of the state of Washington

Nova Scotia    Grafters   In   Legislature
Turned Down.
Ottawa. Dec. 22.���The supreme court
Saturday gave judgment in several
Nova Scotia cases.
In tne the case of Dodge vs. the king
a decision was rendered which shows
the effectiveness ot opposition criticism tn parliament. It Involves the
purchase price of land for the Kent-
vllle, N. S. rifle range. B. H. Dodge
and H. H. Wlckwlre purchased Borne
600 acres for less than $7,000, and offered It to the government for $23,680.
A counter offer wae $12,460. The
question was referred to a valuator
named Crawley, Dodge in the meantime, having tilted his figure up to
$45,111) (J.
Crawley reported ln favor of $38,000,
but public attention having been called
to the matter, tbe government took the
case to the exchequer court. Judge
Uurbrldge awarded $22, 649, and then
Dodge appealed to the supreme court.
This appeal was yesterday dismissed
with cosiB. Judge Burbridge's award
ls upset, and all that Dodge will re-
celve is the amount originally tendered
by the crown, $12,460, with interest.
The two principals were at the time
of the purchase - of the land Liberal
members for Kings county in the Nova
Scotia legislature, and Mr. Wickwire
was a member of the government
shortly after, but lost his seat at tbe
last provincial elections.
Oliver Would  Not  Divulge" Names of
North Atlantic Company.
Ottawa Dec. 22.���In the house on
Wednesday Mr. Monk asked the minister of the interior If he had learned
on his trip this summer to Europe who
composed the North Atlantic Trading
Mr. Oliver said the had visited the
famouB office ln Amsterdam and had
found things In active operation. How-
lever, he had seen no reason for res-
���scinatng the action the government
had taken in cancelling the contract
with the company.
Mr. Monk asked if Mr. Oliver was
not tn a position to give the names of
the  penir.is  comprising the  company.
Mr. Oli-er said it was not the part
of the government to act the role of
detectives. The opposition had endeavored to find out the numes last year
and had failed. He did not think he
could be expected to do better than
tlie whole of the opposition. He had
not gone to find out the names of tbe
people of the company, but whether
the government had done well to cancel the' contract. This closed the Incident.
Knocking the Schedule.
Montreal, Dec. 22.���The Empress of
Britain arrived last night at Liverpool
too late for the passengers to catch
trains, and they will not reach their

This la My 64th Birthday,
llaron Alverstone, who has been
Lord Chief Justice of England since
1��00, was born December 22, 1842. As
Sir Richard Webster, by which name
be was known until he created a baron
moo, be was famous as one of the fore-
moat members of the English bench
and bar. He received bis education at
King's college and Charterhouse
schools and at Trinity college, Cambridge. He was called to the bar at
Lincoln's Inn ln 1868. Ten years later
he was made Queen's Counsel, and Is
believed to be the only man who has
for many years past received that
honor at so early an age. Prior to being elevated to the bench he was extensively engaged ln most ot the heavy
commercial and railway cases of the
day, and, besides having a Urge general practice, he appeared in numerous
appeal caBes In the House of Lords.
He served in parliament for a number
of years and in 1885 he waa appointed
attorney-general in the first government ot Lord Salisbury. Baron Alverstone has been a widower for many
years and Is without direct heir.
Kauffman of California    Disposed   of
Los Angeles, Dec. 22.���George Gardiner of Lowell, Mass., was forced to
lower his colors to Al Kauffman of
California ln the fourteenth round of
a fight scheduled to go 30 rounds. Defeat was acknowledged by the seconds
of Uie Massachusetts man throwing up
the sponge. The tight was slow and
neither man showed any cleverness.
Kauffman had Gardiner all but out in
the second and again ln the eleventh
rounds, but Gardiner's ability to hold
on saved him from a knockout. Gardiner appeared decidedly awkward ln
the ring and his blowa were low and
without effect when he landed. In
the early rounds he seemed to lack
confidence and though he showed some
aggressiveness ln the last round, he
was wary of the San Franciscan.
Kauffman had a strong punch but
fought with little vigor. Kauffman's
weight was 135 pounds, Gardiner's 120
pounds. The blow that ended the fight
was a stiff right to the paw, which tendered Gardiner helpless and caused
bis seconds to throw a towel into the
ring. Gardiner was also so far gone
during the last round that he fell to
the mat twice from sheer weakness
and took the conni of nine each time.
Members Feel Strain   of Sacrifice   of
Time From Work and Rett���Mere
Support   Required.
The Nelson city band has a problem to solve for itself within the next
week or two. During the year now
cloBlng the band has spent over $200
for instruction and nearly $700 for new
uniforms and instruments. Its revenue to cover such expenditure has included a grant of $200 from the city
council for the Sunday afternoon concerts at the park. Similar sums from
the Dominion day celebration committee and the Agricultural society and
the proceeds of a few dances.
The result is that not only have thc
members Individually received no Indemnity for their frequent loss of
time in tbelr various employments,
but tbat the band treasury ls now
Three courses are now open to the
members for choice. One ls to disband, which would be a matter for regret to the members and to most of
the citizens, who recognise the value
of good music, and Its attractiveness
in public functions.
Tbe second is to become strictly
professional, finance Itself and charge
for Its services on all occasions at the
usual band rates obtaining tn other
places. The adoption of that course
would mean no Sunday afternoon or
Saturday evening concerts aj|d- no
gratuitous services at church or charitable functions. That also would be
unfortunate, as It would mean that a
large part of tbe public would hear
the band only at the Fair and during
the Dominion day celebration.
The third course, and the one most
likely to be followed, ls a new appeal
to citizens ror voluntary contributions
that the band may be retained aa a
public Institution. Citizens are In danger of forgetting sometimes that the
maintenance of a cridltable band, always available for the assistance of
public and charitable entertainments,
Involves very considerable sacrifices
of time and money on the part of the
The decision of the band as to Its
future will be taken tn a few days
and will be determined In the main by
public opinion.

Lethbrldge, Dec. 22.���While the development of Canada's mineral wealth
has not proceeded equally with tha
growth of agriculture, steps are yet being taken to ascertain what that wealth
amounts to, and the prospects ln several directions are very hopeful. An
Instance of this ls the signing of a
contract with the city of Lethbrldge
lately for the boring ot a well 1000
feet deep ln the expectation of getting
oil. The contract has been given to
the firm of James Peat s. Sons, Petro-
11a, Ont., and Mr. Peat has just returned home to ship up the necessary machinery to carry on the work. He has
had a long and diversified experience
ln oil fields and he speaks very hopefully of the prospects of the Lethbrldge
Hr. Peat, who is a native of Lanarkshire, Scotland, which he left as a boy.
got bis first experience in the business with which he has since been
connected, 1868, In the oil fields ot
Pennsylvania, and since then he haa
visited the West Indies, Trinidad, and
Western Canada on prospecting expeditions.
He came over to Canada frott tha
United States in 1870 to Petrolia, Lamt-
ton county, Ont, There he has been
actively engaged ln the production of
oil, and he has also explored new fields <
ln all parts of Canada For an English syndicate he went to the West
indies and conducted operations ln the
island ot Cuba. In Trinidad, he says.
they have so far got only shallow oU.
it Is asphaltum, a iake, practically, ot
heavy oil, there being no paraffin
bases. The oil on the margin is cool-
ej and hard, but ln the centre of the
lake it ls hot and a man would sink
lu it if he attempted to cross. From
Trinidad supplies have heen drawn for
ISngland for the last 100 years, hut no
light oil bas been found there.
ln Pennsylvania, Kansas and Ontario
on tbe other hand, the oil has a paraffin base, and this Is also the character of the oil ln the West of Canada.
-Mr. Peat visited the Flat Head valley
In 1901 tor the Crow's Nest Pass Railway company, which held a conoessloa
from the British Columbia government
Since then this oil Held haa come into the bands of actual prospectors and
is being developed by private capital.
The oil that Is found there Is vary flat
as light as 40 specific gravity. In Ontario the specific gravity ot the oU
ls 32..
On the Alberta side there an springs
coming out of the mountains, and ths
oil runs to SS and 38 specific gravity,
not so light as the Flat Head, but considerably lighter than the oil ot Ontario. Here there have been only partial tests made. One or two wells havs
been put down, one to a depth ot MH>
feet. They haw not yet reached a
formation that will give sufficient oil
to make tt a paying territory. Mr. Peat
says from his experience that they ara
not looking In the right place and tha
point he makes Is an Interesting one.
They can never expect to tind paying
oil where It Is oostng out ot tha
ground. They must go back to where
there Is overlying rock to keep It back.
When they get that they will have a
field that will pay. At Medicine Hat
the pressure Is as high as (00 pounds
to the square Inch. He has no doubt
that there will be found a rich oil field
In Southern Alberta and ln Northern
Alberta he Is satisfied that then ia
Mr. Peat Is satisfied that than M
a deposit to be found In Alberta probably not an extensive field, but a valuable deposit. What must be reached
ls the rock formation that contains tha
oil. All the wells so far have only
reached the tertiary formation. That
Is only the reservoir, not when tha
oil was made. In the Devonian or Silurian formations a valuable deposit
will be found tn limestone or sand,
stone. In Ontario It is found ia carboniferous rock and ln the United
States In Trenton limestone. He expects when they get through the tertiary formation at Lethbirdge that they
will strike limestone, but even swob
authorities ot Professors Bell and Sylvan an unable to say with confidence.
By tha wall tbat they an about to sink
to a depth of 1000 feet he ls satisfied that they will get some-thing

��� lhe Autonomy Bill, with the educational clauses, was one of the most
amazing    pieces   of legislation    ever
brought before the house, especially in
view of the fact that h uas introduced
by lbe leaders of a party wnieh wad
historically and fundamentally opposed to thai kind ot action. It violated
the principles ot religious equality
which was one of the things the Liberal party was burn to contend for.
and lor which it is fighting today iu
blng land, it violated the principles ot
provincial rights, wblch. under Oliver
Mowat, was the cry that rallied Liberals again and again to victory; it violated the whole principle of popular
sovereignty which has heed from the
beginning one Of the most sacred tenets of Liberalism and was, moreover,
In the most direct contempt of the
Canadian  constitution.
������'lhe bill was sprung upon the house
anil the country in the most extiaor-
(Unary way. General ���.���lections had just
been held but the Intention to Introduce such legislation was kept carefully concealed from the people. Mr.
Hauiiain. the pitinier of the Territories, and th<' toremost man in tht!
West, was shamefully ignored. Mr.
Sifton, the champion of Manitoba in
thfl school ease there, Mr. Fielding and
the late Mr. Sutherland ot Woodstock,
were away when the bill was prepared, but M. Bbarrettl was at home. The
followers oi ihe governmenl In the
house were taken wholly by surprise,
bul tbey missed the ohanoe of saving
the great, name of their party when
they slowed themselves to be whipped
in o line. The case of the government
nr vailed In the house by the weight
of numbers.
DV-Sfl Mr. Sifton. one of tho ablcs
delist* rs In Oanada- failed to make an
argument, and confessed that he
would vote for the hill wlthnui enthu-
���lasin rather 'ban defeat his party and
Introduce agitation into the country,
though on tbe latter point his conscience did not trouble him In 1890
to 18BV.
Mye-cloctloiiH In North Oxford and
London were at band, and some of us
claim credit for having pleaded with
Liberals publicly to rebuke their leaders and save the party. The Liberal
party papers could have rescued their
parly by standing firm, but they hnw-
l d th? knee and the government had a
temporary triumph. But the retmlt
wns inevitable. Having abandoned the
n tleious equality principle of George
Brown and the provincial rights principle of Oliver Mowat, the party had
to go the rest of the way antl abandon
th" nurity principle of Alexander Mackenzie.
The London election wan a saturnalia of corruption, planned and worke-
ed ont with deliberate cold-blooded-
edness. Haultaln was set aside ln the
West aud the law as to controverted
elections was somehow abolished in
the new provinces. Men were elected
by polls tbat were never opened, and
on every hand   the most   unblushing
neoi ss.'u-y  to make the Conservatives
invulnerable throughout Hritish Columbia, und Cranbrook. whercAit was per
haps least expected. has'Ulfl the way.
The convention which met in Cranbrook this week and nominated Mr. J.
A Harvey to be the standard bearer
for thai riding in the Conservative Interest has reason to feel proud both ol
the caudidate selected and the unanimity and enthusiasm with which the
nomination was confirmed. Cranbrook
is unusually fortunate in the possession of numerous Citizens either ono
or whom would make an acceptable
candidate and a creditable member of
the legislative assembly. Few cities
of its size have as wide a range of
good Conservative parliamentary material from which to choose a caudidate, aud it was to this very abundance
of good material lhat the Liberals
looked for a disagreement and split
party among the governmenl forces.
There have not been wanting efforts
un the part of some of the Liberals
to foment Btrife among the opposite
party, but the unanimity of the convention will forever silence any future
attempts or this kind.
The action of Mr. Thomas Carta in
retiring from the nomination and his
manly urging of the candidacy of Mr.
Harvey must have been a serious blow
lu those wbo represented Mr. Cavin
as au ambitious and self-seeking politician. That be bas been represented
as such by his enemies no one will
venture to deny and thai he magnanimously disproved the libel must have
been a staggering blow tu those among
whom the wish was father to the
thought. Mr. Gavin's close run in the
last election, when the Conservative
party was less thoroughly organized
than now, pointed him out us the like,
ly candidate at tbe next election and
his generous action ia placing himself
snd his following at Mr. Harvey's disposal will not be unappreciated by
his party, and least of all by Mr. Harvey himself.
In Mr. Harvey, Canbrook has a
strong candidate, A pioneer of the
city, a highly respected citizen, an able
m Wber of the legal piolession. an experienced politician, a gentleman whose
private   life   is above   reproach, and
wnose knowledge of public affairs Is
wider than that of many who have had
ess opportunity lo study the trend of
events. Thoroughly acquainted with
every squaie acre of his constituency
and well known to a large majority of
the voters, he enters the contest douh-
\\ equipped to pui up a successful contest. With the undivided support of
the Conservatives which was assured
by the convention there need be no
Becond thought as to the probabilities
of his election. We congratulate the
Constituency on  its excellent choice.

The  morning    paper    seeks    escape
from its misrepresentation of the Timber Leasing Act by asserting ihat it
has the backing of prominent legal
opinion. The Ually Canadian is not
discussing legal opinions. Any partizan lawyer can assert that an act
should be interpreted In this or that
way, but the pro noun cement is far
from final. All holders of timber
leases know that royalties are subject
to revision. Perhaps a little cheap
