ORMALLY VOTES THAT IT IS LOYAL Proposal Spmtng- in Canadian Parliament by French Group and Laurier Accepts. Ottnwa, Out.. Feb. 22, The Canadian Parliament to-day formally declared politi cal loyalty to Gro.it Britain. The dec laration was made as an answer to allega tions that reciprocity with the t'nlted States will riMilt In annexation. Neither the government nor the opposl- J tlon Intended m mal.e this declaration when the House opened at S:fO p. m. They were surprised when the proposal was sprung upon tin m from the French na tionalist group, which has been freely charged with disloyally for Its stand on the naval lsue. Sir Wilfrid l.aurler and R. I, Borden, leader of the opposition, had planned that the reciprocity debate follow Us regular course and the premlrr bad moved the House Into committee for that purposo -when F. D. Monk, the chief French na tionalist, declared that In '"Vtnndn, the T'nlted States and Great Britain some public men and a part of the pres had stated that annexation was bound lo fol low reciprocity. He believed there was no genuine annexation jentiimnt In Can ada and that a statement to that effect should be formally made, llo therefore noved an amendment declaring that with a view to dlfpelllng the feeling of unrest created In Canaia by comment! made in the United States and CanHiln as to the political consequences of the agreement the Houe wishes to affirm emphatically Its determination to preervo Intact the bonds which unite Canada to the British empire and the full liberty of Canada to control her fiscal policy and Internal au tonomy. NOT A DISSBNTING VOTH. Sir Wilfrid aiceptcd the Monk amend ment though In doing so he adopted the most unusual course of accepting nn amendment to a government motion from an opponent of the ndmlnlstiallon. Tho amendment was adopted without a dis senting voice, but before the vote was reached there wn.s nn expression of opinion from leading members of tho House. Sir Wilfrid mld In part: "This discussion In which we are en gaged has given rise to a great deal of comment on hoth sides of tho line. Men there aro In the t'nlted States who have Interpreted this agieement as meaning ultimately the annexation of Canada. Men there are on this side of the line who i.nve taken the same position, but 1 am glad to nay there Is not one man nn this sldo of the House who has ever thought of any such thing. It appears that men there are on the side of the House on which Mr. Monk sits whose views on this question are dlsturhed and who believe that In the discussion of the question of n better trade ariange ment between us and our neighbors, the Canadian people, would be so wanting in self-respect that they might be driven beyond an agreement wise In Itself, lo conclusions such us the honorable gentle rnun dreads, NO ONF.

This HALE HOLDS UP THE II TREATY Effort Fails to Crowd the Jopan esc Convention through the Senate. Vt'esteni S?nntors Merely Asked for Time while Ensteruor Hinted nt an Extension of Reciprocity. W.iehlnKlon, Fob. 22. An effort was made to crowd through the Senate to day Ihe new treaty with Japan on com merce and na". Igatlnn, but it met with i tubburn resistance from a wholly un expected quurter. Sonatot Hale declared that the treaty represented n. voluntary f""1"" """T"' " " cmmcrcia. aovnninge wn.r. .,, n. ! tr' ''v riht wo")'' enjoy for another I , l r ",l""n- of 1'"ri'l' wlllch Jal,;ln 15 nesutlatlns new commer- cl.i! reUitltins. S-nator Iv:ge, who reports the treaty !r""' tn,) Heliate cimmltteo on folclgn ! relations, was unable to satisfy the ob- Jet tors. Considerable ftolir.g was exhibit ed by Mr. Lodge in answeting the Maine senator. It h,nl been expected that there might he fome opposition from Pailflc eoast "enutoi. bcnusp of the ellmln.'i tlrin finm the tew tnr.ty of all refer ciiei.' in the Immigration of laborers. The western senators nnwever, ottered no arguments ,iguni ratification beyond demanding time to obtain an understand ing of its provisions. An executive session of the Senate wai convened shortly after the o'clock to- i ight to consider the new treaty. Sevuial senator were Immediately curi ous to know why there was Mich hasto to have the treaty ratllled. Although this reason was not stated, tho general belief was that the admlnlstiatlon desired ac tlon befoie western States lied time to memorialize their rcpresentatl'. cs to op pose It. WANTS TO SHOW CORDIALITY. Senator Iodge stated that the adminis tration desired prompt ratification as an additional in oof of the cordiality of this fjowriiment toward Japan. The treaty might have slipped through had It not been for Mr. Hale. No fault wax expressed bv tho Maine senator with the Immigration feature but lie charged that It Involved reciprocity with Japan as objectionable to orthodox protectionists as that rontcmphited In thn reciprocity agreement with Caii'ida. Mr. H. lie's comment moused eager In tirest. On every side tpuntnrs who haxl been disposed to accept without ques tlon the rernit of the committee on for elgn relations, pressed him for an explan atlon. Mr. Hale told his colleague? that they would do well to "take nothing for granted" since the Canadian agreement nas brought In. Attention was directed by Mr. Hale to the absence from the new treaty uf tho piotocol of the treaty of 1R34 In respect to tho Japanese tariff to bu applienble to the t'nlted Slates, ru der that protocol the present statu tory tarllf with Japan would bo con llnuod until July 17, t!M2. while. If tho new treaty worn appimed, a new and higher tariff would go into effect at once. Mr. Lodge explained that treaties which Japan has with all rountrlos other than the United States will ev plie soon and that In negotiating nesr I tea ties that government has Incor porated therein the "friendly nation" ehiuse. He declared that to refuse to ratify tho treaty would cause groat loss of revenues to Japan and would secure comparatively small benefit to the United States. Snino sharp passages are said o have occurred between Mn-rs. Lodge and Hale, but tho debater In executive session are never taken down. Alter n long debate, It was realUed thRt ratification to-day was Impossible and tho Sonntn adjourned. SaeiHinento, Cnl., Feb. 22.

SEEM TO ACCEPT SESS1 Indications Multiply That Senate Leaders Will Leave Much for New Congress to Do. Washington, Feb. 22. The chaotic conditions existing to-night In the'Sen-Uo add materially to the probability of an extra session of Congress. In fact, indications began to multiply to-day that the Senate lender", bating become con vinced that an extra session Is unavo.d- able, have decided to throw Into that ses sion a great deal moro than the Canadian reciprocity agi-eemcnt, which really will be the oause for the convening of the new Congress. This It weis charged by the advocates of reciprocity to-ntght will be done to becloud the Issue as much as possible and to deloj the ratification of the agree ment. President Taft Is said to he doing all he can to bring the republican leaders nto line, but h Is met with opposition In both wings nf the party. The prediction was freely made about the capltol to-day that a num ber nf the appropriation bills would full of passage. If this should prove to b the case. It would mean that the itipplv measures pending In the Sen ate or In conference would be thrown out In their entirety and the making of tho new measures would be left In the hands of the new democrats House. There appears no longer any dis position to question President Taft's determination to call an extraordinary esslotl, The date for the opening of the new Congress has been agreed upon tentatively as March 15. Serious doubt was expressed to-night as to whether a vote on the Lot liner case will be possible In the Senate at this tesslon. There seemed also to ho little hope that the resolution regarding the dnect election uf senators or tho per manent tiirilf board bill could be reached. A number of the Insurgent republican senators, who will tetaln their seats In the C:nd Congioss, met to-day to formu late, a plan of campaign ror tho rest ot the j-e'-sion. They declare they favor an extra rcm.on, feellnr that Insufficient lime lemalns between now and March properly to dispose of thu Important matters nnv.' pending. Incidentally, all these Insurgent senators who will bei In the next Congress aro opposed to the Canadian agreement In Its piesent form.

TAFT SENDS THE SEMITE SURPRISE Submits Text of New Treaty with Japan to Replace That of 1894. OPPOSITION SEEMS CERTAIN Convention Drawn with Design of Eliminating Restrictions upon Immigration Pa cific Slone Interested. Washington, Feb. 21. The text of a new treaty with Japan, designed to re pines that of lni and drawn with the speclnl design of ellmliatlng the ro tilclions upon immigration contained In that treaty, w.ia l.'-ld before tho Senate to-day by President Tnft. The essential difference between the proposed titnty and th" existing conven tion Is said to be In the fart that It omits all reference to stt-h restrictions nnd leaves to tho national honor of Japan the enforcement at her own ports the llmttatlon.1 upon emigration from Japan now expressly placed upon Immigration j t,imptcm roads ,0 t j.anelro without a .declared that thero was not ho slight Into the I'nlted Stales.

That the nee treaty will encounter opposition seems certain, t'nllke matters of ordinnrv leslK l.ition, failure of the Senate to act upon the treaty at this session would not of itself extinguish its vitality, hut It e-ould be kept lndefinltel alive In the ,-xecullve flies of the Senate, to bo t.tktn up at any convenient time. RHPLACES ANTiqFATF.D TRF.ATY. This new treaty Is one nf "trade and commerce," Intended to replace the treaty of 1SSU. That tientv has al luady become antiquated, mnlnlv lie cause of the rapid advance of the Jap anese in ways of civilization. Japan hns already negntnteel treaties in re place those of the nineties with nearb all of the- other powers except the I'nlted States. If our government were to Insist upon Its rights, tho existing treHty could bo continued In force until July 17, 131!. The radical difference between the new treaty and the one niv In fnri'e and tho one which mjy prove obnoxious to' western senators, is umleral ond to be the omission nf any reference to the Immigration question. In tho treaty of 1 Sf 4. following pro visions declaring the right of the citi zens of tho two countries! to full liber ty of travel nnd residence and trade In both countries, ii this qualification: "It Is. however, understood that the stipulations contained In this and the preceding article do not In nnv way affect the lnws, eirdlnanccs and regu lations with regard to trade, the Im migration of Intinrers, police and pub lic security which aro In force or which may hereafter be enacted in either of the two countries." HAVK Hl'RT JAPAN'S PRIUK. Under this clause the two govein- msnts have enjoyed the undeniable right to legislate regarding Immigra tion either by restriction or e-:cliidon of coolie labor 1'nquestlonably the United Sta'tes government I'ould do this without any trealy stipulation on the subject, Just ns It did In the esse of China. It li understood that thorn Is no disposition on 'the pnrt of the Japanese to eleny the existence uf ouch power. What they do object o Is the inclusion In a formal treaty, to which they are a party, of a stipula tion assorting Ills', right, which is not embodied In any treaty America has made with lluropean powers and which serveii only as an Irritant to JnpancBO pride.
