Hong Kong, Dec. 9.���The opium dens
or China will probably soon be things
of the past. Within the last lew weeks
effort has been made by the authorities to wipe out China's greatest curse.
In the native quarter ot Shanghai the
opium trade has been entirely obliterated and a similar crusade is now being waged in Canton and other great
cities throughout the empire. The opium trade, introduced In the empire of
the dragon as a result of the cupidity
ot Occidental traders. Is slowly being
wiped out. Nearly all public smoking
places in the great ceners of population
are being closed. It Is not expected
that the smoking Of opium will be stop-
lied Immediately. Confirmed and habitual smokers will be licensed and will
be allowed to continue i^ie use ot the
drug   tinder   certain   restnfetions.
It is a significant tact that the awakening or China should lead, as one or Its
first manllestatlons. to the great ethical
movement such us the anti-opium crusade has already become. For China
is rapidly awakening from its long
slumber. It Is training its soldiers ln
the art ol modern warfare and in the
course of a rew years will probably be
able to take Its place trom a military
standpoint, among the great nations of
the world. This does not necessarily
involve what ls called the "yellow peril."
The Chinese are not and probably never
will be a militant warlike people. As one
prominent statesman expressed it, China had its period ot barbarism, when
it Indulged In war, many thousands or
years ago, and has now passed that
stage.
When the opium regulations were issued trom the throne at Peking a year
ago. the foreigners nt Hongkong nnd

smiled cynically at what they had termed the "hluff" of the old dowager empress. No one believed that the drastic measures would or could be made
effective. Even the most reluctant or
foreigners, who have steadfastly refused to believe that China is really endeavoring to uplift herseir, are now
aware that the opium traffic Is doomed.
The movement Is'steady and spreading
rapidly and the number of anti-opium
societies is increasing rarldly. These
organizations ar. composed mainly of
young men nnd students, and they cooperate with the officials in every way
possible, ln the face of such an awakened public sentiment, no European nation would dare publicly to defend the
opium traffic In China.
Although the imperial decree allowed
nine vears of grace before totally prohibiting the sale or use ol opium, practical prohibition already exists In many
cities, including Peking. Poating. and
Tientsin. The regulations all through
the empire are entorced by the local
magistrates who are under orders Irom
the viceroys. Morphia injection houses
are prohibited, as well as opium smok
bog dens. Failures ot magistrates to
enforce the law involves severe penalties, and the Chinese prohibitory laws
thus actually prohibit.
According to the rules Issued by the
government, all opium smokers under
fit) yours ol age must quit the habit In
the next three years. All opium smokers must furnish their names and addresses, the quantity they smoke dally
and other Important particulars. 1,1-
cons.-B are issued to such registered
smokers i., . untile tlt.-tu lo buy daily
supplies, from 'he licensed opium shops.
Any dealer who sella to other than a register. .1 amoker forfeits his license and
beoomea subject to a severe penalty.
Hospitals for the cure of the habit have
been established In may eltloB by
Chinese philanthropists and have many
patients, most of whom are sent forth
apparently cured.
Ottawa, Dec. 9. ��� The Exchequer
Court has banded down judgment In tile
rase of the Dominion of Canada vs. the
province of Ontario. Justice Fiurbrtdge
holds that administration of Indian affairs devolve upon the Dominion government and Ontario ought not to be
held .e-.r-onslble for the administration
of Indian -rct'los In Ontario.
The expense of nc.**-��tiatiocs of tho
treaty are held to be reasonably Incurred and should be allowed to the Dominion and charged to Ontario. The province ought to be held liable to indemnity tbe Dominion for expenditures
made to pay each Indian Inhabitant for
the tract surrendered the sum of five
dollars yearly, and for part of the amount of twelve dollars given to each
man, woman and child ot bands- represented at the time the treaty was entered Into. The judge fixed the province's
share at five dollars per head on this
score.
The sum of $1,500 yearly for the puiv
chase of ammunition and twine for nets
for the use of Indians by the treaty. Is
allowed as an expense. The Dominion
must pay tor its expenditures tor school
supplies and for the encouragement of
agriculture among the Indians. They
are held to be legitimate objects of administration on the part of the Dominion. The province of Ontario must bear
expenditures made for salaries of
chiefs, and for the triennial distribution
of clothing to them.
PRAISING  J.   P.   MORGAN.
British Financiers Admire his Foresight
and  Public   Spirit.
1-nndon, Dec. 9.���Lord Rothschild,
discussing the financial situation ln
America recently said:
"I would like to speak of the unselfish remedial action of Mr. Morgan.
Before now It has been generally recognized and agreed that he* is worthy of
his reputation as a great financier and
a man of wonderful resources. His latest action fills one with admiration and
respect for him."
"Morgan is a financial giant," said
another eminent financier, "because In
times ol financial calm he has the ability to see the darker days ahead. His
promptness in meeting the situation
during the recent panic is not only
prool of his great abilities as a leader,
but of his preparedness.
"Nothing is more probable than that
Mr. Morgan, while the rest of the earth
thought he was Intent only upon gathering new trophies of his skill as an art
collector and dilettante, was assuring
himself of the support that might later
grip the tottering structure of finance
with a  firm and  steady hand."
It developed yesterday that J. Plerpont Morgan, during his latest visit to
this country and the continent, took
advantage of his regular yearly visit to
prepare for u possible panic. While here
he put In his spare time discussing the
situation generally as lt existed and the
possibilities as he foresaw them, at the
same time making arrangements with
financiers here and on the continent for
support ln case thlngB reached a crisis
In  the  United  States.
From reliable sources it was learned
today that Mr. Morgan received assurances or support to any amount trom
the Rothschilds. I.azard FTeres, the
ttarings and other large European
houses.
Mr. Morgan's judgment ot tho future,
as he saw lt on his visit here, ls now
shown to be correct. It Is known he
feared the revelations in regard to the
Insurance scandal would have, as a logical aftermath, a period of doubt and distrust.

EDITORIAL  COMMENT.
lu yesterday morning's issue our contemporary devoted his editorial
to discussion of tbe MacKengJB King
inquiry m Vancouver, tht i'-��� acta treaty,
and our discussion of both. His really
ainiisiuK article was introduced by tb'
following:
'���Whilst th*- ]���-..', organ oj the Con
���ervativ. party scan find neither time
ior space in which tr. dlftCUM thi
one situation occasioned bj tbi till
closures before the Asiatic inmligratloc
Cominission. which established the fad
that the Ueatenant-governor ol Un
province and the Canadian Padfld Etail-
���way company bad conspired to flood this
province with chinp cooiie labor from
.lapun.lt Jinds both t" discuss*, the Fn ncli
treaty, recently concluded by Canada
with  France."
We plead guilty We can find time
and space to discuss b new treaty. We
can find time and spaoe to discuss anything that is new and important. The
trouble Is that our contemporary thinks
he has made an overwhelmingly Important discovery, fflvery one else has
known it tor years, Then- is no situation, serious or otherwise, created by
the publication. Incidentally our eon-
temporary's charge of a conspiracy be
tween the lieutenant governor and the
c. F. u. company is b characteristically
reckless   use   Of   language.
We have refrained irom attacking the
lieutenant-governor chiefly because he
is not iu a position to reply. We do not
defend his action at all. lie knows Lhat
the policy of the province*in which he
Ih now legally the first personage ls to
restrict Oriental immigration as Ear SI
possible. He is also the appointee and
representative of the Dominion govern
Stent which pretends similarly to favor
restriction. We say pretends advisedly
and will justify it. That government's
"avowed policy," as our contemporary
quite correctly says, is to restrict Oriental immlgrution. but its real policy is
not. It is something new in government and diplomacy to plead an admittedly indefinite unwritten understanding
agalnsl the plain terms of a formally
signed treaty, and our treaty with Japan
gives permission lo all clases to enter
Canada   in   unlimited   numbers.
Our contemporary's expression Ln a
former issue "violation of the avowed
policy" iw of course without meaning.
Tht Dominion government can easily
make its 'avowed policy" the law of the
laud and prevent violation by either
Mr. Dunsmulr or the C. P. R. So far it
has nut done so. It is doubtful if there
has '.ifcen any violation even of the provincial Alien Labor law, which is the
only provincial statute thai BP*g_1 be
invoked. If capitalist COrporgtlOSS have
tnerel} taken advantage of the laws of
Canada we regret its effect, hut the nature nl corporations has long been
known, there Is nothing new in the subject, and, in short, us on several other
reoanl occasions, we decline to join our
contemporary in a campaign of mud
throwing.
Our contemporary kindly calls otu r.
ferenee to the French treaty grotesque.
Well, grotesquenesi Ls relative. We can
quite conceive of a lervios In Bt Paul's
or tin Able \ appearing grotesque to a
native of Formosa or New Guinea.
There is no "dirge of lament" as our
contemporary says���by the way, the
phrase should be patented. Its absolutely new. We conceded that there might
be some benefit but we protested that
it was breaking Canada's pledge to the
rest of the Empire.
Our contemporary says that Sir Wilfrid has never told audiences iu Canada that Canada has now attaned full
treaty making powers. We didn't pretend to quote verbatim. lie certainly
claimed that the negotiation of the
Fiench treaty marked a long step in
that direction and Mr. Fielding had to
admit that the claim was ridiculous.
If our contemporary's request for informal ion were candid, we would take any
1 rouble to enlighten him. Iu any east-
cm paper's account of Sir Wilfrid's
home-coming Speeches at Quebec, Montreal and Ottawa he will find the claim,
and probably lu each case In the same
issue in' will find that the claim wus bo
understood.
We are also informed that, if we h_d
"enquired of the nearest schoolboy we
WOUld huve learned that any trade arrangement, concluded with any country
by any colony must always grant full

and equal iirlviliges anil rights to the
mother country"
Mipbt we suggest that our contemporary subsidize his visionary school boy
and send him to London u. enllgbt*��n
the statesmen and editors there. In
comiiarison with our contemporary's���
or even "the nearest school boy's"-���
knowledge on the subject, their ignorance is pitiable.
On Nov. sstiih ult. we published the
following in our despatches:
Mont real, Nov. SJU.���A London cable
says that Knglish papers commenting
ou the Franco-Cana.l au treaty though!
the treaty was reducing almost to a
vanishing point the liritish preference
on certain goods, such as silks, velvets,
lace goods, ribbons, etc., of which Hri-
lain sent Canada nearly three million
dollars worth in 1806; in other directions also the treaty goes far to demolish British preference on goods, in
which France competes. As it was. indeed, the treaty even gives lower duties
to France than to Hritain.
The Standard notes that this is contrary to Laurier's assurance to the Im-
li<ria: conference that In negotiating
witt, France and other powers Canada
would maintain a system of lower tariff, io the motherland and tellow Hritish
subjects throughout the  world.
Our contemporary may still be quite
right. Of course there remains the
possibility that he and bis school boy
friend have learned by Intuition
"truths that are hidden from the wiBe."
Sir Wilfrid Laurier taunted Mr. Borden with omitting mention of Protection
from his platform! A platform Is supposed to be made of controversial is
sues. There is no longer any controversy on the principle ot protection,
pace Sir Wilfrid's "never rest���laquitons
system," etc. Why doesn't Sir Wilfrid
complain about the omission of representative government, trial by Jury,
freedom of worship and a few other
iiiirieiii p .lili.al issues?

PORTUGAL'S TROUBLE
Mercurial   People     Need     Excitement���
Keen for Riot but too  FickJe
for  Revolution.
HeadtTH of Portugese) news who aup-
pOM tbe KlngH throne to be in imminent danger should not forget t_at the
people of Portugal are Jual about as im-
petOOUfl aud aa Incapable of penri*
lent, determined political action us are
the people of South America. On that
aoocmni Qu y ere not the tees danger-
ouh aa rioters; bul they are less likely to make the strong, the steady move*
ment necessary to unseal King Carlos,
who. wilh all his faults. Is a pretty decent sort of ruler, and has withal a very
llrm grip on tho reins cif government.
The famous anti-English, anti-Spanish crusade of some years ago throws
h significant light upon the PortngOH
character. At that time a dispute had
arisen in Portugese East Africa, and
was on the point of being settled by
an Anglo-Spano-Portugese treaty, when
suddenly Serfo pinto, a Portugese officer, made the discovery that his country was being swindled. Instantly the
treaty was dropped, and the loyal Por-
tugeee began to prepare ror a wai u!*on
thi ir two aggressors. The Hritish
navy looked as though it would take
some time to destroy, and so the Portugese decided io strike the hated Englishman first in his pocket-book. In a
week practically everyone in Portugal
had joined a vast national association
pledged never to buy any articles of
clothes or food made in perfidious Albion. Serfo Pinto became the hero of
the hour; and in his honor the association adopted as its badge the Serfo Pinto hat. To show enthusiasm everyone
in the country wore one of thoBe hats.
Mountaineers who had no use for any
kind of hat bought one of the distinctive Serfo Pinto pattern. English trade
in Portugal seemed dead. Then some
one of an enquiring turn of mind asked who was making the Serfo Pinto
hat. It was discovered that their manufacturer was an enterprising London
hatter. The whole country was dumbfounded Tor a moment, and then in a
gale of laughter lhe anH-I;ritish association collapsed and the treaty was
signed. The feature of the present trouble is not a hat, but a cigarette, and the
cause of it is not the treacherous ulien.
hut the grafting patriot. In short, Portugal has established a tobacco monopoly; and the politicians have l��een
robbinc the countrv for years. One
party was convicted of graft, and turned out; but its successor also fell by
the wayside, and there was no improvement until the King dismissed the Portugese and handed over the government
to Regenerators.

Supreme   Court.
In tho Supreme Court today the hearing of Isaac vs. Miller was continued
with R. W. HlnUm again on the stand.
A slight hitch has occurred. The defendants alleged defects in the machinery, the promissory note in payment for which is the basis of the action. The plaintiffs asked for particulars. In the course of the trial a specific defect was alleged. R. M. .Macdonald. for the plaintiff contended that
this was entirely new matter and ask-
id for adjournment to the next session
of the court. His Lordship declined
to grant it and commented on the amount of work devolving upon himsell
as a justice of the Supreme Court and
also as a judge in admiralty. At tho
afternoon session the hearing of Haggard vs. North American Land aud
Lumber Company was resumed, the
piece of machinery having arrived from
Fernie  and   been  set   up.
