PRESENra TO IHE OORT 0 Mr. Buchmaster Strongly Contends that Legislature was Within Rights CIVIL RIGHTS One Judge Seems to Require a Great Deal of Con-vincing London, Dec. 12.-The Alberta appeal before Uic judicial coinmiltec of the privy council in the case of the Koyal Hank of Canada, the Alberta and Clreal Waterways railway and the Alberta government was resumed today. Mr. Buchmaster, K.C., for the respondents, said the contention really was that the statute which obliged the bank to pay the money to the respondent, namely, the provincial treasurer of the provirce of j\lberta was ultra vires. The Lord Chancellor interposing, Bald : "The case against yo\i is this Btatute so intnrfercs with civil rij^hts in property as to amount to conhs-cation." Mr. Il\lchniE>ster replied that h'.' was prepared to meet that case. Alberta was an independent sovereign state so far as the right to make law.s within the state was concerned. Its .powers were those of an empire subject to two limitations only, viz.: Its geographical area and its obligation to do nothing hostile ti the rights of other provinces. The bank's liability was a debt and the province thought (it to pass the act regulating that debt. .It was a decision which was not ultra vires and could not be attached as such. Lord .Atkiii.son, "You say so because the statute deals exclcsively in the province." Mr. Huchmasler, ''That is the vliole point." l.ord CliMcellor. "I am not so much concerned with the right of the province to pass the act.dealing with the payment, hut vtth what to me is a very difhcult point, viz., the eltect it has on civil rights. I agree that if tl)c act is not ultra vires then the question is, to whether what you purpose to do in consideration by the court, right or vrong-is wholly irrelevant. Tliere vas an order but was it the jurisdiction of the province." Mr. Huchmaster said he would deal pany, two biplanes of the "n. > K," typo, a number of which : : ? '> : : : : HEADING HERE C.N.R.
