REMOVING A CURSE OHINA FROM Thoso who woro present say that tlio Mock I'arliument can rIvo a tew lips in oratory to tlic real parlla-nients. Opium in the curso of Ohinh aiul �tho effort to rid that nation of the stuff shoulfi be supportcl by all people of the world who have the interest of hunianltj- nt heart. �t Canada is displayintr its I'lfrernoss to assist in the movement for tho supjiression of the tralUc l>y sending as a delegate to the lutornntionnl ' t^piUm Conference which opens nt Shanghai on Fob. 1, W. L. Ainckenzie King, jr. P., and former deputy Minister of liObor. T-ast year the Canadian rurlinmont passed nntl oi)ium legislation and Mr. King's association with the investigation into the Chinese troubles at Vancouver was mainly responsible for this action. It is gratifying to hear from China that progre.SH is being made in the suppression of the cuUi\ation and use of the drug. The ^reduction of tho area under poppy cultivation has bct-n made in many of tho provinces. This ik due to the new Chinese regulations which impoKO increased taxation upon those farmei-s who fail at once to reduce the nrea of their popp.v plots, while .severer penalties, lines, imprisonment and confiscation of tho crop are kept Iwfore the.eyes of t' who may persistently fail to make the annual reduction in the crop rcipilred t>y law. .\nothcr fact that is encouraging China in her undoulitedly sincere efforts to stamp out the opium evil Is tho agreement finally obtained from all the Powers to piohiliit the importation of morphia except for medicinal purposes. For some reason Japan delayed long in giving her con sent, but it, came at last. It has been estimated by physicians that only aiMHil one-tenth of the opium l)rought into the Western world is used in prescriptions, and the fulfilment of this .ngreement among thej Powers will mean the removal of one j great incentive to the cultivation of tho pop])y. This prohibition is go into effect on .Tanunry 1st. The proceedings of this Conference will be watched with great interest it intends to consiiler every t>hnse of the opium ipiestion and its findings will have great weight in determining tho final attitude of the Powers toward tho reform which China needs more than all other nations. She began single handed the movement that has led to the international consideration that is about to lie given to the great iiuestion.
