TiovixrtT Lawa, Offlclal adflcts from
London show that the British Oorernmetit
has at last decided to chaafia lU law of
nationality as affecting renooal stains A
bill Is now being considered In rarllament
which formall j confers on British sibJecU
tha right to renounce their allegiance, and
lays down the corelatlye principle that on
being naturalized In a foreign country a
British subject forfeits his nationality Great
Britain admits at last that she gains nothing
by claiming the allegiance of unwilling sub
jects permanently domlcllated In tbe United
States, In which she cannot afford tbe pro
tection wHch they as tub eel a might Invoke.
British subjects who bare natnraltted them
selves here, without veslgnlng their allegl
ance. hare two Tears allowed them In which
to choose a country. Wllhln that period
they may reanme British nationality by
making a statnable declaration and taklog
an oath of allegiance to the Queen t hot they
cannot plead British nationality In this
country unless permitted by our law. Chil
dren born within tbe British dominions are
to be regarded as natural born subjects of
the Queen, but If of foreign parentage, they
may, after coming of age, rrglster a declara
tion of alienage, and bo renounce their Brit
ish nationality. Aliens are to be enabled to
hold land In Great Britain, although It Is to
be provided that they cannot thereby be
qualified for any office or franchise, and the
Queen In council may suapend this provision
as to the subject of any state at war
with Great Britain during the continuance of
hostilities.
