Ottawa, Ont., March 2a When (lie
O'Brien resolution! were called up In the
Ilouoe of Com mom this afternoon. Col.
O'Brien moved an amendment, declaring
tlmt the Jesuit order in s secret oriruuitutioii
and is fraught with danger to Canada, lie
aid that he moved his amendment owing to
tlic conviction of hla constituents and what
le believed to be the sentiments of a major
ity of the people of the Dominion, although
he was elected as mpporter of Sir John
Macdonold. He had said on previous o ca
llous, in anticipation of such an act sa the
Jesuits' estate act, tlmt he would, when the
time came, oppose any efforts: to obtain
rights not guaranteed by treaty. He
would bo recreant if lie failed to do so.
The resolution was explicit and required
little explanation. In view of the pant twenty
year it ought to obtain (lie support of the
House. While it might ho true thut the bill
wm within the spirit of the British North
American act, yet Parliament possessed au
thority lo dial with matters Imperiling
Canada's national existence. He reviewed
what he termed the history of the Jesuit
order. Far wus it from him to siiy anything
derogatory to their (unction. At Con(iieiit
they held viist estates for tho promotion of
their ends. It was true that the 11 rot work
in the direction of Chrintiutiizing the heathen
was performed by Jesuits, and hundreds of
them, with a Mdf-snrriflc would havo been
admirahlo hail they loot their lives. Tho
reservation in the subsequent capit
ulation applied to all religions. J lie
name of Jesuit would not bo a by
word and a reproach In America
and Europe if a majority of the members of
the order was as heroic in the discharge of
their duties. Since the time of Kliubetb
they wera suppressed in Kugland. Their
object was to overthrow Protestant establish
ments in F.ngliind. If they were not ex
ladled they were at the oiiit of being ex-
Jicllcd from other countries. IxmiIi at their
ule In Franco and Sicily. Tho report was
unfavorable to them. Whilo other re
ligious bodies in Canada regained tlicir
promrty, the Jesuits Were left out In the
cold as a result of their bad historiciil
record. The Crown showed them great
clemency. The estate in Canada were not
.taken over until l), when the last sur
vivor died. They were left In trust to the
i province to be administered for the cause of
education. There is no legal, moral or
equitable rlalm (or thu restoration of the
estates and ail contention III that direction
are shallow and tlllnhV.
Premier Mercier himself admitted In his
corrcqaiiideiic that the Jesuits - d no
l'"rml claim on the government. The Jesuits
bill violates the fuiiihuneutul principleot the
Constitution In mi fur as it endows a rrligious
order The clergy reserve act settled once
for all that all denomination and sects were
the same before tit law. Theee lauds grunted
to the Province for educational purposes, in
trust, were acccptd, and this Agreement aos
ratified by Parliament in Kll and I leal The
l ulled Provinces of Ontario and Uuebec
had equal right ill those days, ami these
hind were mentioned in tha British North
American act. Out of the f luo.issj grunt the
1(UU awanlcd to the Csllmlle school
f itiiet of turhec wu a bribe of money
which eiully lielonged to the I'rotcsliitilii.
He ridiculed the Idea of the Poe interfering
in Canadian civil mat ten and drew attention
to the reference to the Pop in a preamble to
Mr. Mcnicr's bill. It seemed childish to
contend that an act of a llritisb Legislature
thoiibl not hecomea law without the coiisi'iit
of tbe Pn lie. Mr. Merrier' correspondence
with the lloly He showed this. A negative
reply from the Pope wonld simply nullify
the act. What If the Province of Ontario
made a grant to the Angliran Synod and h-ft
the distribution to the Archbishop of Can
terbury? The miple of Canada knew It was
Dncnnstitultonul to let lbs operation of an
act hinge upon the ticgutiva or alttrniaiive
of foreigner. The weaxui of the Jesuit
have changed since the time when they were
hated throughout the World. Toe Jesuit
wss an abnormal creature, without home or
fumlly, submissive to nerlors. Thry al
ways' had men to do their work, whether
good or had. There had been men of great
attainments In tbe order, but tbe time, had
mme when the world must know that
, Canada, brooking no Interference, civil or
religious, drsired to remsiii Brithri. II
. then moved lb following resolution, to be
presented to the tiuveruor uenrrai:
1. 1 lint the House reptrils tlio power ol
disallowing the act of the lcgi-iulire -seuililies
