REGISTER  AMERICANS
Secretary   of   State   Root   Explains   Object of Locating Citizens Living
Abroad.
London, Feb. 22.���The American Society in London, Kngiand, baa pul.lishe,d
in tho Times tbe following letter of reply from Hon. Klihu Root, secretary of
state In regard to the requirement of
American consuls that they shall make
rfeturna to the departments of the registration of American citizens residing
In their respective district?*, it applies
with special significance to the large
cities of Canada where there are so
many Americans.
"In reply you are informed thnt paragraph 172 of the consular regulations
relative to registration is of longstanding, being in tbe consular regulations
of 1880, and the executive order of
April 8, 1907, merely reaffirms the regulations with an amendment requiring
consuls to make ivturnd of riLci.strations
to tbe department. The regulation requires principal consular olllces to keep
a register of American cilizcns residing
In their several districts, to make known
that such a register Is kept and to invite all resident Americans to cause
their names to be entered therein. Its
object is to obtain a record of American
citizens abroad in order that the government may he better able to protect
them by knowing who are entitled to
protection, and to afford them an opportunity to make the American citizenship a matter of Official record.
"The regulation provides that the
same gt-ncrul principles govern applications for registry as govern applications
for passport and the department desires native as well as naturalized citizens to register, as the Information thus
obtained may be as necessary in their
case as in the case of nuturalized citizens. As you are aware the American
citizen residing abroad Is held by this
government to he entitled to Its recognition as long as he maintains in good
faith his American citizenship; and the
department does not deem It a hardship nor an InfilnKeuient upon his rights
to urge oue who resides abroad, and is
for that reason free from performing
those duties of citizenship which are
exacted of a citizen who resides within
(he Jurisdiction of his government, to
inscribe bis name on a register and to
speak the facts concerning Ills foreign
residence to a representative of bis government.
"It Is frequently of great. Importance
for the said department to know without any deluy how many American citizens nre in a foreign country where
they reside, in order to determine It;.
attitude in regard to movements and
measures which may affect their Interests. This can only be done hy means
of such a registry aj is called for by the
regulations."

PropitUtory Message Cabled to Toldo
���Devices That Could Have Been
Used to Nullify Appeal.
Ottawa, Feb. 22.���The decision of
Justice Hunter that the British Columbia Natal Act Is ultra vires Is regarded
here us practically the settlement of
the whole question. Even If British
Columbia should appeal to the privy
council, the act could not be enforced
pending the linal decision of the latter
court, as It would be within the power
of the Dominion to secure an injunction
fiom a court i .-straining the province
from any further attempt to enforce the
act. By awaiting action of the court
the Dominion government, it is claimed,
has obtained a better settlement of the
question than if it had disallowed the
act. In the latter case the province
could have at once passed another act,
and the situation of the past few days
would have been repealed.
A cable has been sent to the Japanese
government acquainting them with the
facts of the case, aud giving assurance
that if the courts did not promptly declare the act ultra vires. It would be
disallowed here. In any case the interests of Japanese would be adequately
protected   by   the   government.
For the past ten months of the current fiscal year ending with January,
the total Immigration to Canada was

new appointment to an assistant chief
eummlssionershipa at a salary of $11,000,
and two addition-al commissioners at a
salary of $8,000 aacb. This will enable

suspended at Ottawa.
The report aat the council of the Do-
minion Hllle Association to the annual
meeting of that .association next week,
will recommend installing twenty-live
additional turgets on Kockcliffee range.
Tlie idea is tu luive these targets on a
separate range. The recommendation,
It Is understood, has been approved by
the minister of militia, and there ls
little doubt it will be accepted by the
association. An. office���' meeting at the
D. A. K. meetliag lust August strongly
urged more facilities, aud this Is a step
in  that  direction.
Messrs. Aldridge of Trail, and Fowler
of Nelson, II. <_., mining experts, who

programme Is to await a division of tlie
American navy and first destroy the
force in the Puclflc and later dispose r
lhe remainder should it return as was
done with tho Russian Baltic fleet. Coincident with the Junta's activity, there
Is a recurrence) hero of the Japanese
spy scare.
Reports  to  the  secret   service  from
native sources reveal the Japanese In
the role of laborers In the different provinces, particularly In the southern Islands investigating, surveying and mapping and feeding native guides with
suspicious liberality. The Spaniards
and Philippines are extending hospitality to these spies and are given letters of commendation which recipients
are advised to retain as likely to be
valuable in future. Every effort ls
being made by the Japanese to Ingratiate themselves with tbe natives, conditions being similar to those which prevailed several years ago when Washington's representatives to Tokio resulted in  their temporary cessation.

New  York's  Latest  Graft.
New York. Feb. 22.���Now that the
use of automobiles haa become common In New York, there has been discovered a new form of "graft" for city
officials. The city furnished the different department heads with autos In
order that they might save time ln getting from place to place and thereby
nccompllsh more work. Hut Mayor Mc*
Chilian has now discovered that the
officials use the machines for their own
private use, and lt Is not uncommon
to see the wlfo of one of the officials
going about from shop to shop ln a
city-owned auto, with a city paid chauffeur nt the wheel, while all repairs and
gasoline are paid for out of the city
treasury. The mayor intends to stop
the private use of the machines, and
while It may be Impossible to learn
whether the machine ls used for private
purposes during official hours, It will
be possible to eliminate the long Sunday trips which the officials and their
families have been accustomed lo take
In the city's cars. Mayor McClellan
has several plans under advisement,
such as time checks and speedmeters
1 tor running down the guilty ouos.

Vires���News of Canada From
Ocean to Ocean.

tale of a young girl's vengeance on a
man who, she alleges, wronged her, of
her ten mile trip through snow drifts,

Winnipeg, Feb. 22.���The Maple Leafs
doubled the score on the Strathconas
last night by 16 goals to 8, at half time
the score being 6 to 6. It was a greut
game, full of sensational plays, both

May Have a Third Ticket.

League throughout the country assembled in .this city today. The purpose of
the  conference  ls  to decide  upon  uie
part that the Hearst followers will take
In the coming presidential campa.gr,.
In view of the fact that Mr. Hearst bas
declared that he will not be a candidate
for the presidency, there Is believed to
be but one contingency that would result ln the Independence League putting
a ticket in the field. It is certain that
no steps will be taken In this direction until after the Denver convention.
It ls assumed that should the Democrats fall to nominate WUHani J. Bo an
for the presidency, the Independence
League would Immediately hold a national convention and put a third ticket
In the field with Mr. Bryan's name at
the top of it.

LOOK FOR GREAT RUSH
Indications That British Emigration to
Canada This Year Will Exceed
All  Records.
Winnipeg, Feb. 22.���Within three
weeks the fit st of the year's immigration influx lorn the European countries to wes .rn Canada wil begin. Immigration ois.cials at Halifax and Winnipeg are making preparations for the
annual rush of thousands of settlers
which will jommence in a short time.
The ste; _ which have been taken by
those in t barge of the work all over
Canada point to every indication that
the Immigration figures for the coming
year will eclipse all past records. Those
in charge of the immigration work at
Halifax are making preparations for the
handling of from four to five thousand
a week after the rush begins, and on
this basis, if this keeps up during the
remaining months that European steamers are running to the port the numbers will surpass those of the most suc-
csesful year in the history of Canada's
European immigration. About the first
of March lt is expected that the rush
will begin from the liritish Isles. Then
seven or eight boats will be docking
each week which will mean an average of well over four thousand.
The bulk of the European immigration during tbe past year was from
the British Isles. The efforts of the
officials in charge was chiefly directed
towards securing settlers from England
and Scotland, and as a result the percentage of British subjects bore a larger proportion to the total than It did
ln any previous year. Likewise the attention of the immigration authorities
this year has been turned towards the
matter of inducing as many as possible
from the mother country to take up
their residence In western Canada. The
reports from the steamship companies
show that there are now as many passages booked as ever before of those
who will soon be on their way to settle
in Canada-
Other agencies report the anticipated
rush to be greater than ever once the
winter breaks up and newcomers can
arrive in the country without suffering
tbe inconvenience of the winter weather. Last season the severity of the
winter and the late spring placed Immense difficulties in the way of distribution ot the immigrants and the forwarding ot their effects to their respective points of destination in the west.
The difficulties of the past season are
not anticipated this spring, and in addition the railways are in far better
condition to handle the traffic than they
could attempt to do a year ago.
Applications are also beginning to
pour Into the immigration offices for
farm help. At the Immigration offices
now there are about seventy-five jobs
open, while at the immigration office of
the Salvation Army double this number
of  inquiries  have been  received.
Rioting In Rome.
Rome, Feb. 22.���Urgent prosecutions
were taken by the authorities to prevent demonstrations in the vicinity of
the chamber of deputies by adherents
of members of the extreme parties who
ln the rectn debates ln the chambers
have urged the abolition of all religious
teachings In the primary schools. When
the demonstrators arrived they found a
cordon of police and soldiers thrown
nround the buildings and they were kept
at a safe distance. Inside of the building troops were stationed to prevent
nny trouble that, might arise. In driving
back the crowd ln the streets the police were compelled to arrest several
of the more unruly demonstrators.
AWAIT JECISION
Future of Silver Lead
Mining:
DEPENDING ON DOMTY
Cold and Copper Camps Have Definite Plans���Prospects for Sprinf
���Market Quotations.
While the gold and copper mining
districts are either actively working or
making definite plans tor expansion at
the beginning of spring, the owners and
managers of silver-lead mines are anxiously awaiting the decision of the
Dominion government on the appeal for
continuance of the bounty and readjustment of the minimum price. It has
been stated publicly by practically all
concerned that without either renewal
of the bounty and raising of the minimum price, or a natural advance with
a prospect of permanency, of which
there ls little hope at present, the operation of low grade mines must cease.
While ministers hesitate the Industry
suffers by tbe resulting uncertainty. A
definite and satisfactory decision would
certainly lead to a revival and expansion of the industry of which the whole
country would feel the benefit.
The stock market for the past week
contained no special features of Interest, trading continuing dull with the
market showing but little change.
B. C. Copper remained almost stationary throughout, fluctuating only one-
eighth to one-quarter. Dominion Copper
also continued to show bnt little fluctuations, one-eighth to one-quarter b-jing the

to 5 cents per share with few buyers.
International Coal also weakened, declining from 2 cents to 3 cents per

Con. Smelters sold down about $6 per
share, closing weak at about $72. Carl-
boo McKinney continued Inactive and
almost unchanged. Diamond Vale Coal
strengthened slightly, at the close sell-"
Ing up from 1 cent to 2 cents per share.
North Star, after a slight flurry, weakened, selling down about 2 cents per
share. Rambler Cariboo also weakened,
showing a decline of 4 cents per share
on thu asked price. Sullivan continued

Saturday,  February  22,  1908.
LIBERALS  AND THE   BUDGET.
The financial statement of Mr. Tat
low, with its chief feature a surplus of
more than 11,000,000, has seni Liberal
orators aud editors searching for explanations, not always with very happy
results. Our local contemporary's analysis ls worth a little attention for
amusement's sake.
It may be summarized briefly in three
contentions as follows:
"The buoyant condition of provincial
llnuuces is mainly duo to tin; expansion
of the lumber industry, and Uiis ln turn
is wholly due to the growth of the population in the prairie provinces, a condition of aftalrs with which the provincial government bad nothing whatever to do. Hritish Columbia is benefitting by thu wise and progressive immigration poliry of the Dominion government."
Second, that tbe present surplus
shows the folly of the $1,000,000 loan of
11103, and
Third, that the great J. A. Macdon-
ald's contention that the proceeds ot
the personal property tax should be
given to municipalities, ls hereby established.
To deal with the contentions seriatim:
there is a measure of truth in tbe first,
but it ls capable of being carried a great
deal further. The "wiBe and progressive immigration policy" was lnlUated
by Conservatives, and sneered at by
Liberals Including Sir Wilfrid Laurier
until they wen; sobered by the responsibility of office. It involves, incidentally and perhaps hot maliciously, neglect
to recognise the growth of the liritish
Columbia market, due to Immigration
into this province, with which the provincial government, through unother of
Mr. Tatlow's departments, hod a Utile
to do.
\
The second contention Is comic. It ts
equivalent to saying that, when a man
finally realizes on an Inheritance which
has been tied up, it proves him an idiot
for having worked or borrowed to keep
alive during the preceding years. It
also Involves, in language we have not
space to quote, a distinct misrepresentation, which again we are willing to
believe is not malicious. Neither Mr.
McBride nor any of his colleagues ever
indulgeal in "blue ruin talk." No public,
man In the history of Hritish Columbia
has expressed greater faith in the future than Mr. McBride. He wns merely
stating a fact, obvious to all, when ha
said that the credit of the ;*rovlnco
stood at zero at home and abroad,
when he took ofllce In 190S) after n succession of mixed administrations.
The third contention is hardly serious.
Of course something had to lie said Tor
the great but unfortunate opposition
leader. Money doesn't grow by manipulation. No tax payer in any municipality will care much in which direction his burden Is lightened. It ls the
amount that interests him, not the distribution.
PARABLE OF THE SOWER
Types of the Too Flexible and the Shallow  Believers���Church   Services  Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will ho the Second Sunday
before Lent, called Sexagealma. Monday will he the festival of St. Matthias
the Apostle, the first elected bishop of
the church, chosen by the 120 male
Christians forming the whole church of
lhat day, Including the eleven apostles
remaining after tho treason and suicide
of Judas Iscarlot.
The gospel for tomorrow contains
the parable of the sower whose seed
fell by the wayside, on stony ground,
and on good ground. It is one of the
very few parables of the Lord expounded by Him to the disciples, or at least
of which a record of the exposition
has been kept by the evangelists. The
three types are nol. peculiar to Christianity, nor Indeed to religion, ln every
movement there aro always those who
yield to the first breath of opposition,
and others In whom no serious pur
pose can take root

Paris, Feb. 22.���Le Figaro publishes
a remarkable letter written by the late
King Carlos last December to a great
lady ln Paris. As an historical document the letter Is. of first import. It
shows that Carlos was all too Inclined
to underestimate the daring and re-
Bourcefulness of his opponents, fear
with him being an unknown quantity.
It also sbowB clearly tbat he bad very
considerable designs on Brazil, which
he purposed visiting this coming May
and where he believed two million loyal Portuguese would further his objects,
under the auspices of the House of lira*
ganza.    The letter is as follows:
"My very dear friend.���How can 1
thank you for your exquisite letter?
But, frankly, when I wrote to you I
was not Hulling for compliments,' but
was simply unbosoming myself a little to somebody who, I knew, would
be able to understand me. The first
stage has been got over���with much
difficulty and so many strange happenings tnat I cannot even tell them
over here, not even to you. Like men
who saw themselves lost my adversaries have resorted to any and every
weapon, even the most infamous one
���everything alike came to them. They
did not take into consideration the ill
they were doing the country if they
believed they could hurt me or my
government. You cannot believe, dear
friend, what extraordinary patience,
what fortitude was needed to resist
these daily pinpricks, and how painful some of them were. But, as I have
said already, we have won the first
game in the rubber, but how much remains to be done?
"Happily our extraordinary (there ls
no other word) victories in Africa
came opportunely to arouse public spirit The effect was enormous, and, luckily, in the right direction. And we have
a good trump card besides ln our hands,
and that Is the phenomenal foolishness
of our opponents, which results practically In being able to turn almost
all their blows against themselves with
the exercise of a little dexterity. But
what a labor���of every day and every
minute! Oreat as Is my confidence ln
my government, I cannot avoid watching everything and keeping my eye on
the smallest detail, for ln battle there
ls no such thing as a small detail; and
we are still in the field. A pacific campaign certainly up till now���and I believe with a little resolution and skill
it may remain so to the end. But in'
the long run it ls different, and, really,
I feel tired, morally and almost physl-
