MEXICO (MTV. Hopt 17. Legal
precedent for the republic of Mexico
to nationalize Its laiulu which are
now devoted to tho production of
petroleum, Is claimed In u statement
recently furnished to The Associate i
Promt by Loon Halllias, sub-secretary
of the Department of Commerce and
Industry which hus this question In
Laws and statutes governing tho
doolopmont of coal and oil doposlts
dato back to tho days of the vicer
oys In Mexico, tho statement says,
and slnco that time thoro has been a
sorlos of decrees and laws that firm
ly establishes tho rights of tho re
public In this regard.
Tho question Is now In the hnnda
of tho Mexican Congress for revision
with a vlow to adjudicating claims
mndo by forolgn companies with vast
Interests In Moxlco.
As early an 1793 tho Spanish gov
ernment by laws known as "Mining
Statutes of Now Spain," established
tho absolute dominion of tlu crown
over mine and their products lit
Moxlco, says the statement.
llunlto Juarez, president of Mx
Ico, decreed In ltd! that tin nation
has direct dominion over co.il IiciIh
In 1S81 the Sup! cine- Court of .lus
tlco decided that the coal mines weie
subject to bo denounced and that
tho "Mining Statutes of Now Spain"
wore still In force. Two yenrs later
tho Congress of tho Union niucndrd
the federal constitution, chtuhllshlug
tho right or that congress to Issue
mining and commorclul codes which
should bo binding throughout tho
Husod upon such author and exor
cising tho authority granted by tbo
Legislative power, tho President In
1881 Issued tho first mining code
of tho Mexican ropubllc which de
clared, in suhtsanco, that tho coal
and oil of tho subsoil belonged to tho
owner of tho surface. This principle
was fallowed in the mining laws Is
suod by Congress in 1892 and In
The statement declares that later.
Ir 111 17, Article U7 of tho Constitu
tion, tho proposed amendment to
which has been tfiibmlttcd to Con
gress by President Ciuinuzu, recog
nised tho dominion of tho nation ov
er tho hydrocarbons and tho system

and development of petroleum. It to
claimed that tho law which is now
proposed to founded upon tho prin
ciples of tho Constitution.
WHAT OTHERS SAY
GAS SUBSTITUTE IS
SOUGHT BY FRENCH
PAItlS, Sept. 17-Tho government
hns authorized experiments with a
bonzol and alcohol mixture as n sub
stitute for gasollno In uutomobllo
onglncB, In vlow of tho high price of
tho lattor--a dollar a gallon. While
bonzol used ulono undoubtedly gives
more power than gasoline, It has an
objectionable odor, and chuuffouVs
who havo trlod It assort that It cor
rodes carburettors and cylinders.
Both those disadvantages, it Is
claimed, may bo to some extent ro
movod by mixing tho benzol with
alcohol or ether or both.

PORTLAND, Sept. 17. Collector
of Internal Revenue Milton A. Mil
ler was yesterday advised that tho
requirements of tho Internal Reven
ue Law, providing that aliens in
tending to go abroad must file a
certificate of compliance with in
come tax laws before a sailing per
mit will be issued, has been extend
ed to American' citizens, and that
Canada has Joined the United States
in a reciprocal agreement for strict
enforcement of these Regulations.
This means, the Collector said,
that theAgates of embarkation are
closed to all travelers who intend to
proceed to foreign countries until
they have secured an Income tax
Clearance irom me internal uevenue
Cdllector for the district In which
they reside, and have secured from
the Internal Revenue Agent in
charge of the port of embarkation, a
sailing permit which must be attach
ed to their passport.
Arthur C. Hearle, special repre
sentative of the Internal Revenue
Bureau in Washington, yesterday
conferred with Collector Miller as
to the tightening of these regula
tions at this port. Ho stated that it
was not the Intention of the reve
nue department to work a hardship
on travelers but merely a safeguard
for the equitable administration of
the income tax laws.
"Strict compliance with these reg
ulations," said Collector Miller,
"mainly is In the interest of the
traveler, because on arrival at the
port of embarkation travelers have
been and will be delayed and even
denied embarkation on the boat on
which they have reservations, unless
they present their papers in proper
form to the revenue officer at the
pier showing that income tax laws
have beeit fully complied with."
In the case of American citizens,
they must produce good and suffi
cient evidence of having filed an in
come tax return and payment of all
taxes due for the year 1918 ;or in
the absence of sufficient income to
necessitate filing returns, must fur
nish evidence of the amount and
nature of all income received.
Aliens desiring to go abroad must
submit tholr passports to an inter
nal revenue collector together with
evidence as to the income received
by the traveler, which evidence may
bo in tho form of letters from re
sponsible employers showing amount
of income received, evidence as to
bank deposits, and withdrawals
made, evidence in tho form of doc
tois' certificates, hospital bills or
similar documents in the oase of
loss of employment by reason of
sickness, and, in general, tho estab
lishment of the applicant's actual
net Income to tho satisfaction of tho
collector. Non-resldent alions must
show a clean Income account for
1916, 1917, 1918, and that part of
1919 up to dato of departuro from
