NATURALIZATION AND ALIENS.

?

Hon. CHAS@

FITZPATRICK (Minister of Justice) moved first reading of Bill (No. 147) to amend the Acts relating to Naturalization of Aliens. He said : This Bill will apply exclusively to the province of Quebec, and is designed to meet a difficulty which exists there. In that province applications tor naturalization must be made to a judge cf the circuit court of the district in which the alien resides. But the circuit court of a district travels from place to place, and the question has arisen whether or not the applications must be made to the courtsitting in the chief place of the county. It is a trifling matter, and I cannot understand how the difficulty has arisen, but probably some clerk of the court wants to avoid difficulty, and I am asked to make the point clear.

Motion agreed to, and Bill read the first time.
