for the West Riding of the County of Durham, which is as îollows :-- 

SPECIAL RETURN OF THOMAS BINGHAM, ESQUIRE, OF THE TOWq OF 
BOWMANVILLE, IN THE COUNTY OF DURHAM, THE RETURNING 
OFFICER FOR THE WE5T RIDIh'G OF THE COUzNTY OF DURHAM. 

BOMANVILLE, ONTARIO, 14th November, 1900. 

To the Clerk of the Crown in Chancer), 
at Ottawa. 

&,--I beg to report to you as follows :- 
As I was commanded by the Vrit duly issued to me by Royal authority and dated 
the Ninth day of October, 1900, and received by me on the Twelfth day of October, 
1900, I issued the usual proclamation giving notice of the rime and place of an election 
according to law of a 3[ember to serve in the House of Commons of Canada for the 
Electoral District of Durham XVest, in the Province of Ontario, causing the nomination 
of candidates af such election to be held on the Thirty-first day of October, 1900, and 
the voting, in case of more than one candidate being nominated, ou the Seventh day of 
November, 1900. The Writ and a copy of the Proclamation referred to accompany 
this Report. 
On Monday, the Twenty-ninth day of October, 1900, a nomination paper was handed 
to me at my office in Bowmanvil]e, apparently properly signe:l by thirty-seven electors 
of "West Riding of the County of Durham, in the presence of a witness, nominating Mr. 



6 6th February. 1901 

Robert Beith, of the aforesaid Town of Bowmanville, fariner, for the position of Member 
for the said Electoral District. The said nomination paper had affixed to it the consent 
of the said lol)ert Beith, duly signed by him, in the presence of the saine witness who 
signed his name to signify that he haxl seen the said electors and Mr. Robert Beith sign 
the said nomination paper and consent, respectively. The said witness ruade o«tth l»efore 
1ne that he had seen the said electors and Mr. Robert Beith sign said nomination paper 
and consent, respectively. The said nomination paper and consent were handed to me 
by Mr. XVilliam F. Allen, of Bowmanvi]le, the financiai agent of Mr. Robert Beith, duly 
appointed by him in writing, and at the saine rime the said Mr..çllen gave me Two 
hundred dollars in bills of the Standard Bank of Canada. I gave to him a receipt for 
the nomination paper, the Two hundred dollars, the appointment of the financial agent, 
and stated in same that the witness who had seen the electors sign the nomination paper 
and Mr. Robert Beith sign the consent had taken before me his oath to that effect. I 
deemed this nomination paper had been deposited with me in every respect regularly and 
as required by ]aw. The said nomination ialer, consent and affidavit of the witness 
accompany this Report. 
On Monday, the Twenty-ninth day of October, 1900, Mr. E. H. McLean, of the 
ïllage of Newcastle, in the Electoral District of West Durham, a practicing Barrister 
and Solicitor, called on me t my office in Bowmanville and left with me a paper 
purporting to be signed by Mr_ C. Jonas Thornton, of the Township of Clarke, in said 
Electoral District, appointing Mr. Robert Russell Loscombe, of Bowmanville aforesaid, 
a practicing Barrister and Solicitor of long standing in said Town, as his financial agent, 
during said election. 
On Tuesday, the Thirtieth day of October, 1900, the Mr. Loscombe referred to 
called on me at my office in Bownmnville and asked hae if Mr. McLean had left xvith me 
a nomination paper for Mr. Thornton. I told him that he had hot, and that I had no 
nomination paper for him. He told me that he expected that Mr. McLean had left it 
with me the day before. He then said " I will pay you the deposit required now and 
Mr. M cLean can hring it in again." He then offered me a cheque drawn on the Agency 
of the Standard Bank of Canada at Bowmanville, signed by Mr. C. J. Thornton, payable 
to the said 5[r. Loscombe or order, endorsed by the said Mr. Loscombe, and " marked 
good " by the said Agency of said Bank. I took up the cheque and, looking at it, said 
to Mr. Loscombe, ,' This is hot in accordance with the requirements of the Act which 
says that the deposit bas to be in legal tender or bank bills." Mr. Loscombe replied, 
" This is ail right ; it does hot make any difference." Knowing that Mr. Loscombe was 
an old practicing lawyer, Mayor of the Town and a prominent man, and feeling that I 
was hOt competent to argue the question with him, and that I had doue ail my duty in 
warning him, I said no more. I thereupon ruade out and handed to him a receipt for 
the cheque, showing by the receipt that I had received from him Two hundred dollars, 
which he took and went away. I bave stated ail the conversation which took place 
between Mr. Loscombe and myself at the time in any way referring to or bearing upon 
the nomination paper, cb.eque, payment of the money or the money itself. I, immediately 
after Mr. Loscombe went away, went from my office as stated, took the cheque to the 
Agency of the Ontario Bank and deposited same to my credit, in an accourir of mine in 
the said Bank. 
()n Wednesday, the Thirty-first day of October, 1900, Messieurs Loscombe and 
McLean came to me, when I was sitting with my election clerk, at the time and place 
appointed by the proclamation for receiving nominations, and between Twelve o'Clock 
noon and Two o'Clock in the afternoon, and handed to ,ne a nomination paper, apparently 
properly signed by thirty-one electors in the presence of a witness, nominating Mr. Charles 
Jonas Thornton, of the aforesaid ]7ownship of Clarke, fariner, for the position of Member 
for the said Electoral District. The said nomination paper had affixed to it the consent 
of the said Charles Jonas Thornton, duly signed by him in the presence of the same 
witness who signed his naine to signify that he had seen the said electors and 5[r. 
Charles Jonas Thornton sign the said nomination paper and consent, respectively. The 
aid witness ruade oath before me that he had seen the said electors and Mr. Charles 



1 Edward VIl. 6th February. 7 

Jonas Thornton sign said nomination paper and consent, respectively. The said nomina- 
tion paper was handed to me by said Mr. McLean in the presence of the said Mr. 
I,oscombe and my election clerk. I gave him a receipt for the said nomination paper. 
I acted on these two nomination papers aud proceeded with the election, appointed 
Deputy Returning Oflicers in the regular way, issued ballot papers, ballot boxes, and 
instructions to the deputies, and voting took place in the said Electoral District of 
West Durham on the Seventh day of November, 1900, and the ballot boxes were subse- 
quently collected in by me. 
On Satmlay the Tenth day of November, 1900, the day fixed by me in the pro- 
clamation to sure up the vçtes for thc candidatcs, with the consent of the agents of 
Beith and Mr. Thornton, I adjourned the time for summing up to Wednesday the 
Fourteenth day of November, 1900, at Two o'Clock. The reaso for the adjournment 
was that two of the ballot boxes had not been returned. 
On Monday the Twelfth day of Noveml,er, 1900, I ]earned tht the question of the 
validity of the nomination papeçs of Mr. Charles Jonas Thornton was to be raised before 
me on the adjourned appointment for summing up the voies, and I at once decided that 
I should bave the opinion of disinterested counsel to guide ,ne as to what I should do. 
I sent ço Me. A. B. Aylesworth, Q.C., of Toronto, and Mr. W. R. Riddell, t).C., of the 
same place, a statenent of ail the circumstances, and asked their opinion and advie as 
to my duty. Annexed to this Report is a true copy of the letters I sent to the counsel. 
The letters were sent sepaçately and | bave no knowledge that they conferred together 
on the questions. 
On the morning of Wednesday the Fourteenth day of November, 1900, I received 
from Mr. A. B. Aylesworth an opinion, a true copy of which is hereunto annexed ; and 
on the saine morning I also received from Mr. V. R. iddell an opinion, a true copy of 
which is hereunto annexed. 
(n Vednesday the Fourteenth instant, at the hour mentioned, I was attended by 
Mr. Charles Jona Thornton in person and Mr. Loscombe for him, and by Mr. D. B. 
Simpson, (.C., and Mr. H. F. Huntcr for Mr. Robert Bcith, and in presence of these 
parties, and my electin clerk, I opened all the ballot boxes, with a view to summiug 
up the votes. I found the envelope which is supposed to contain the certiticate of the 
Deputy Returning Oflicer, with which alone I bave to do in sumning up the rotes, in all 
the boxes with the exception of two. As to one of these the parties agreed that 
should ent- the 6gures as I have recei,ed them, i, a,other form, fr:»m the Deputy 
Returning Oficer concerned, and I entered ail the figurçs for ail the polling divisions but 
one. At this point. Mr. Simpson stated that he had an argument to address to me 
which he would like settled before anything further was done. He then ruade a state- 
ment of the facts connected with the dcposit of the nomination paper with me and the 
payment of the Two hundred dollars similar to, if not exactly the saine, as stated above, 
and, after argument, submitted that the nomination paper of Mr. Charles Jonas Thornton 
under the Stature was not valid and should hot have been acted upon by me. He stated 
that Mr Robert Beith was legally the Member for West Durham, but asked that I do hot 
return either candidate as elected, but make a Special Return of all the circumstances fo 
you. 51r. Loscombe rep]ied to the argument, contending among other things that 
could exercise no other function than su,n up the baHots and report the candidate who 
had the highest number of rotes as the Member e]ect. Mr. Simpson replied to his 
argument. 
After explaining my position and what int]uenced me to write to Messieurs Ayles- 
worth and Riddell for their opinions, I rend to the parties a copy of the letters I had 
sent to these counsel and their replies above referred to, and announced my intention 
to be guided by their advice. 
I further say tha I ha-e hot yet received the missing return from the ballot box 
spoken of, but Mr. Thornton and his agent Mr. Loscombe admitted the correctness of 
the figures I had, and Mr. Simpson and Mr. Hunter, subject to the objection as to the 
validity of Mr. Thornton's nomination paper, admitted also the correctness of the figures 



8 6th February. 190 l 

and, with these figures introduced, Mr. Charles Jonas Thornton received 1637 of the 
rotes cast at said election and Mr. Robert Beith 1597 rotes, leaving Mr. Charles Jonas 
Thornton a majority of 40. 
I make this Return to the Writ to me directed in accordance with the opinions and 
advice of the counsel I consulted, Messieurs Aylesworth and Riddell. They both are 
apparently clearly of opinion that the nomination paper of Mr. Charles Jonas Thornton 
was invalid and should hot bave been acted upon by me, and that my duty is to make 
a Special Return to you of all the circumstances, hot attempting to decide the question 
raised, but leave that fo the proper tribunals of the country, and hot return any candi- 
date as elected. 
All of which lhumbly certify. 
I am, Sir, 
Yours obediently, 
THOMAS BINGHAM, 
Retuvning Odïcer.

TH()MAS BINGHAM, 
Returning OJ]icer, West Durham. 

BOWMANVILLE, 12th Iovember, 1900. 
DEA StR,--I desire your opinion on the following case and your answers to the 
concluding questions. 
I was appointed and am now the Returning Officer for the Wes Riding of Durham, 
in the pending election of a Member for the House of Commons. I issued the usual 
proclamation, appointing Wednesday the 31st ultimo for the nomination of candidates, 
Wednesday the 7th instant foi" the summing up by me of the rotes. Owing to the 
ballot boxes hot being in I postponed the summing up fo Wednesday the 14th instant. 
I received some days previous to nomination day (th 29th ultimo) the nomination 
paper of Mr. Robert Beith, with every detail in perfect order. 
On Monday the 29th ultimo, a Mr. E. H. McLean, a Solicitor and supporter of 
lIr. C. J. Thornton, called on me at my office and left with me a paper signed by Mr. 
Thornton, appointing Mr. R. R. Loscombe, of Bowmanville, as his financial agent. ()n 
Tuesday the 30th ultimo, Mr. Loscombe ca]led on me and asked me if Mr. McLean had 
left with me the nomination paper of Mr. Thornton. I told him in reply that he had 
hOt and that I had not any nomination paper for Mi.. Thornton. He then produced a 
cheque of Mr. C. J. Thornton, drawn on the Agency of the Standard Bank in Bowmnan- 
ville, payable to the order of Mr. Loscombe, marked good, and endorsed by himself, 
which he pl)ffered in payment of the deposit required by the Dominion Elections Act, 
saying he would make the deposit and Mr. McLean could hand in the nomination paper 
later. I looked at the cheque and told Mr. Loscombe that this was hot in accordance 
with the requirements of the Act, which said that the deposi had to be in legal tender 
or bank bills. He then said to me " This is all right, it does hot make any diflrence.ï 
I took the cheque, gave him a receipt, showing that he had paid me Two hundred dollars. 
I then took the cheque and deposited it to my account in the Ontario Bank. On Wed- 
nesday the 31st ultimo Messieurs Loscombe and McLean came together and handed me 
the nomination paper of Mr. Thornton. The election went on, I acting on the two nom- 
ination papers. It is a marrer of common report that Mr. Thornton received a majority 
of the rotes cast, about 40 I believe. I bave to make my announcement on Vednesday 
next as to which candidate is returned as the Member for the Riding. 
1. Did the circumstances connected with the deposit of a nomination paper of Mr. 
Thornton, the paying of the deposit, &c., as above set out, tender it a valid nomination 
paper which I should have acted upon ? 



1 Edward VII. 6th February. 9 

2. Did my arts as stated above cure any irregularity which existed in connection 
with the said nomination paper, if you conclude there was any irregularity ? 
3. What is my duty under the circumstances, if you decide that the nomination 
paper was net valid and should net have been acted upon ? 
Will you be good enough te give reasons shortly for your conclusions, and bear in 
mind that I must have your opinion te be of any use te me by "Wednesday morning. 
Yours truly, 
THOMA, BINGHAM.

THOMAS BINGHAM, 
Returnig Qcer, |Vest Durham. 

TORONTO, 13th November, 1900. 
TI-IO,IAS BING[tAI, Esquire, 
Bowmanville. 
DEAR SIR,--I have your letter of yesterday, stating your position as Returning 
Officer at th recent election for the West Riding of Durham, aud the circumstauces 
connected with the delivery te you of the nomination paper, and of a cheque for tho 
statutory deposit on behalf of Mr. C J. Thornton, one of the candidates at this election. 
You ask my opinion as te the validity of this deposit and nomination paper, and 
as te your duty under the existing circumstances. 
The requiroments of the lw as te the manner of making the candidate's deposit 
with the Returning Officer are very clear. Section 34 o[ the Dominion Elections Act 
provides that a sure of Two hundred d»llars in legal tender or in the bills of seine char- 
tered bank doing business in Cnada at tho timethe nomination paper is filed. ¥ou stte 
that in this case the deposit was noç ruade with you in cash, but a cheque of the candidate, 
net payable ¢o yout" order, but endo[-sed o er te you by the payee, was handed te you as 
representing this statutory deposit. 
I am clearly of the opinion that such a manner of making, or attempting te make, 
the deposit was net a compliance with tho law. 
The Elections Aet is very distinct in providing that no nomination paper shall be 
valid and acted upon by the Roturning )fficer unless the deposit of Two hundred dollars 
in cash is made with the Returning Oflàcer at the time. 
In the present case this was net done, and I am therefore of opinion tht Mr. 
Thornton's nomination paper was net valid, and that it ought net te bave been acted 
upon by you. 
Vhether your conduct in recei ing the cheque, and in depositing it te your credit 
in your own bank, and afterwards issuing ballot papers, and allowing the voting te 
proceed, has or had net had any effect te cure this initial invalidity in Mr. Thornton's 
nomination paper, is in my opinion a doubtful question of law. I am net willing te take 
the responsibility of deciding it for you, and I should net suppose you would be willing 
te decide it for yourself. It is one on which I should net be surprised if even Judges 
arrived at different conclusions. Under these circmnstances you will lwobably be best 
advised if you decline te take the responsibility of solving the difficulty. 
Te return Mr. Thornton as elected without making ny mention of the invlidity 
of his nomination paper would be te ignore that invalidity altogether. Te return the 
other candidate, who has net received a majority of the votes cast, would certainly net 
be right. 
Under these circumstances, apparently, your only course is te make a Special Return» 
stating the facts, and lea e the matter te be dealt with by the proper tribunals of tho 
country. ¥ours truly, 
A. B. AYLESWORTH,

THo..«s B.«;nA)i, Esquire, 
Bowmanville. 
DEAI SII,--I am in receipt of your letter of 12th lgovember, instant, and [ under- 
stand the facts upon which you desire my opinion to be as follow :-- 
You were appointed Returning Offices. for the ,Vest Riding of Durham. The usual 
proclamation was issued. Some days lorevious to nomination day (the 29th ultimo), tb.e 
nomination paper of Mr. Beith, with every detail in perfect order, and accompanied by 
everything ca]led foi" by the tatule was handed to you. On Monday the 29th, Mr. 
E. H. McLean, a Solicitor, left with you a paper signed by Mr. Thornton, appointing 
Mr. Il. R. Loscombe, of P, ownlanville, as his finaucial agent. On the 30th ultimo, Mr. 
Loscolnbe called upon you, and, being informed hat you had received no nomination 
paper for Mr. Thornton, Mr. Loscombe produced a cheque of Mv. Thornton on the 
Standard Bank in Bowmanville, payable to the order of Mr. Loscombe, marked "eood" 
by the lq, ank, and endovsed by Mr. Loscombe. This he proffered as the deposit required 
by Section 34 of the Dominion Elections Act, saying that he would make the deposit and 5if. 5IcLean could hand in the nomination paper later. You then told Mr. 
Loscombe that this was hot in accovdance with the requirements of the Act, which said 
that the deposit lnust he in legal tender or bank bills. Mr. Loscombe then said " this 
is all right, it does hot make any difference," whereupon you took the cheque, gave him 
a receipt that he had paid Two hundred dollars, and afterwards you took the cheque and 
deposited it to your account in the Ontario Bank. On Wednesday the 31st ultimo, 
Messieurs Loscombe and McLean came together and handed to you the nomination paper 
of Mr. Thornton. You acted on the two nominatian papers, whereupon voting took place 
on the 7th Iqovember instant. It is understood that Mv. Thornton bas received a major- 
ity of the rotes cast. 
Under these circumftances, you ask me the following questions :-- 
1. Did the circumstances connected with the deposit of the nomination paper of 
Mr. Thornton, the paying of the deposit, etc., as above set out, render it a valid norni- 
nation paper, which you should have acted upou ? 
2. Did your acts, as stated above, cure any irregularity which existed in connection 
with the said nomination paper, if I should conclude that there was any irregularity 
3. "Vhat is your duty under the circumstances, should I decide that the nomination 
paper was not valid, and should not bave been acted upon ? 
You desire also that I should give my reasons, shortly, for my conclusions. 
I am of opinion : 
1. he nolninaion paper of Mr. Thoruton under the cireumstances set out by you 
was not valid and should not have been acted upon. 
My reasons for so thinking, are, that Section 34 of the Dominion Elections 
provides in so manv words, 
" No nomination paper shall be valid and acted upon by the Returning Ofticer 
"    unless a sure of Two hundred dollars in legal tender or in the 
" bills of any chartered bank doing business in Canada, is deposited in the hands of the 
" Returning Oflàcer at the rime the nomination paper is filed with him." 
Leaving a.side the fact that no deposit was made af the rime the nomination was 
filed (which may possibly be cured by Section 153 of the Act) it is perfectly clear that 
no sure of Two hundred dollars in legal tender or in the bills of any chartel'ed bank 
doing business in Canada was so deposited. " Legal tender" bas a well known signifi- 
cation, and that is "money which by the laws of the country may be offered in payment 
of a debt." A cheque is hOt such " legal tender." 



1 Edward VII. 6th Februarv. 11 

2. Your acts did not cure the said defect in connection with ghe no«nination paper. 
Whatever may have been the object of the Parliament of Canada, they have 
expressed in words too clear to adroit of any doubt what must be donc in order to make 
a nomination paper valid, and they have expressly provided that a nomination paper 
shall hot be valid or acted upon unless accompanied by this deposit. You have no 
power go change the law of the land, and no act done IJy you or anyone else tan tender 
tha valid which the Parliament of Canada hae declal'ed tobe invalid. I ara strength- 
ened in this view by the fact that Sections 152 and 153 of the Act declare that an elec- 
tion shall not be invalid by reason of non-cornpliance with the provisions of the Act, as 
to the taking of polis, or of the counting of rotes, or by reason of the want of qualifica- 
tion, in the persous signing a nomination paper, or of any mistake in the use of the 
forms contained in Schedule One, or by reason of non-compliance with the Act as to 
limitation of time. The Parliament bave declared that irregularities shall hot void the 
election and the wel! established legal principle is applicable here, riz. : that where 
Parliament bave mentioned certain exceptions no other exceptions will ie allowed than 
those which are mentioned. 
3. Your duty in the first instance was to (leclare Mr. Beith elected. Thisit is still 
open to you to do. Since, however, the election has gone on (although upon a paper 
which was invalid and shouhl no$ have beeu acted upon) and since you have already 
acted to a certain extent upon his invalid uomination paper, I think it would now be 
unvise for you to take upon yourself the responsibility of saying that the voing was a 
nullity. I think the course you should pursue is to make a Special Return of ail the 
facts connected with this election without returning either candidate as elected, and to 
leave it to a higher authority to decide what should be donc in the premises. 
Yours truly, 
W. R. RIDDELL. 

The Commissioners then administered the Oath to the Members who appeared, 
which being donc, and the Members having subscribed the Roll containing the ()ath

Accordingly Mr. Speaker-elect, with The House, went up to the Senate Chamber, 
and there Mr. Speaker spoke to the following effect, viz. : 

[AY IT ï)LEASE YOUR EXCELLENCY : 

The House of Commons have elected me as their Speaker, though I am but little 
able to fultil the important duties thus assigned to me. 
If, in the performance of those duties, I should at any rime fall into error, I pray 
that the fault may be imputed to me, and not to the Commons, whose servant I ara, and 
who, through me, the better to enable them to discharge their duty to their King and 
Country, humbly claire all their undoubted rights and privileges, especially that they 
may have freedom of speech in their Debates, access to Your Excellency's person at all 
seasonable rimes, and that their proceedings may receive from Your Excellency the 
most favourable consideration. 

Then the Honourable the Speaker of the Senate said :-- 

SPEAKER, 

I am commanded by His Excellency the Governor General to declare to you that 
he freely confides in the duty and attachment of the House of Commons to His 
Majesty's Person and Government, and not doubting that their proceedings will be

privileges, that they may enjoy freedom of speech in their Debates, and bave access to 
EIis Excellency's person as occasion shMl require, and that ail their proceedings may

receive from him the most favour.ble construction. 

(}rdered, That Sir Wilfrid Laurier lmve leave to bring in a Bill respecting the 
Administration of Oaths of Office. 
tte accordingly presented the sMd Bill to the House and the saine ,vas received and 
read the first rime. 

Mr. Speaker reported, That when The House did attend His Excellency the Gover- 
nor GenerM, this day in the ,enate Chamber, His Excellency was pleased to make a 
speech to both Houses of Parliament, of which M r. Speaker said he had, to prevent mis- 
takes, obtained a copy which he read to The House, as followeth :-- 
tIonourable Gentlemen of t]e £nate : 
Çentlemen of the ttrouse o/Commons : 
Since out last meeting the Empire has been called on to lainent the demise of Her 
late Majesty Queen Victoria. The universM regret and sympathy with which the 
tidings of her decease have been received throughout the entire civilized world, afford 
the best testimony to the manner in which she bas, at ail times, discharged her duties, 
both as a woman and a sovereign, throughout ber unprecedentedly long and glorious 
reign, and I will venture to add that in no portion of her vast territories were those 
sentiments more profoundly felt than in the Dominion of Canada. 
¥ou will, I ara sure, take early action to express your sympathy with the Royal 
Family in their bereavement and your loyMty to the new Sovereign. 
The Canadian Contingents to South Africa have nearly ail returned, and it affords 
me a very great gratification to be b|e to assure you tiret the vMour and good conduct 
of out Can',tdian soldiers have cMled forth the highest encomiums from the several 
commandes under whom they bave served during the arduous contest. 
The union of the severM Provinces of AustrMia into one confederation, upon lines 
clasely resemh[ing those on which out own Dominion bas been established, marks 
another important step towards the consolidation of the outlying portions of the Empire, 
aud, I am well assured, will ca]l forth your most sincere congratulations to the new 
eommonweMth. 
Acçing on the advice of my Ministers, I had, previously to the great grief which 
has fallen upon the nation, tendered an invitation on your behalf to His Royal Highness 
the Duke of Cornwull and York to conclude his intended visit to AustrMia by one to 
the Dominion vf Canada, and I ara glad to be able to inform you that His Royal 
Highness bas been p[eased to signify his acceptance of the saine. I still hope that that 
visit may hot be conside-ed impossible. I lmve no donbt of the warmth of the welcome 
with which he will be received. 
My Government bas lem'ned with great satisfaction of the progress being made with 
the Pacific Cable scheme, and I trust that nothing may occur to delay its early com- 
pletion. 
Last summer I max]e a tour through Canada as far as Dawson City and was everv- 
where received with unqualified proofs of devotion and loyMty. During my journey I 



1 Edwa'd Vil. 7th Febt'uavy. 15 

was, from personal observation, much impressed with the great activity displayed in the 
development of the mining and agricultural industries of the country and with the 
substantial increase in its population. The thrift, energy and law-abiding character of 
the inmigrants are a sub.iect of much congratulation and afford ample proof of their 
usefulness as citizens of the Dominion. 
It gives me great plc«tsure to note the excellent display ruade by Canada at the 
Universal Exposition at Paris. The fine qua|ity and va'ied character of Canadian 
natural and industrial products is evidenced by the number of awards won in nearly 
every class of the competition. Itis a remarkable testimony to the effectiveness of our 
cold StOl'age transpor,ation facilities that fesh fruit grown in Canada secured a large 
number of the highest awards. [tis extremely gratifying to observe that, as a result 
of the display of Canadian resources, considerable fot'eign capital bas round its way to 
Canada for ir«'estment and large orders from foreign countries bave been received for 
Canadian goods. 
The improvement of the St. Lawrence route continues to engage the very careful 
attention of my Government. During the past year ship channels bave been widened 
and deepened, additional lights and buoys have been provided and in a short rime there 
will be telegraph and cable communicatiou with ]h,lle lsle. These additiona! securities 
will tend to lnake saler and more efli«'ient than evel" out great waterway between the 
lakes and the Atlantic. 
I am glad {o o|»serve that the revenue and lhe general volume of trade continue 
undiminished and even show a moderate increase over the ve'y large figures attained 
during the past year. 
5[easures will bc sublnit(ed to you for the better supervision of the export trade in 
food products, and also, in connection with the Post Office, the 1)acific Cable and various 
other subjects. 

Gentlemen of t]e Hoese o] Costumons : 
The Accounts of the past year will be lad belote you. 
The Estimates for the succeeding year will likewse be placed upon the Table at an 
early date. 

Honoerable Gentlemen o/the Seate : 
6'entlenen of the t[ose of Co»mons : 
I commend to your earnest consideration the measures to be submitted to you, 
invoking the Divine blessings upon the important labours on which you are again 
entering. 

On motion of Sir Vilfmd Laurier, seconded by Sir Pichard J, Cartwright, 
()rdered, That the Speech of His E.xcellency the Governor General to both Houses of 
1)arliament of the Dominion of Canada, be taken into consideration on hIonday next. 

t)n notion of Sir Vïlfred Laurier, seconded by Sir Richard J. Cartwright, 
Resolved, That Select Standing Committees of this House for the present Session be 
appointed for the following purposes :-- 
1. On 1)rivileges and Elections.--2. On Expi1"ing Laws.--3. On Railways, 
Canais and Telegraph Lines.--4. (-)n Miscellaneous 1) i are Bills.--5. ()n Standing

Queen Victoria. 
In common with our fellow subjects in all parts of the Empire, we deplore the loss 
of a great ruler whose manifold and exalted virtues bave for three generations com- 
manded the respect and admiration of the world. 
As representatives of the Canadian people, we mourn for the beloved Sovereign 
under whom our Dominion first rose into being, and to whose wise and beneficient sway 
are due in no small measure its growth and prosperity. 
May we venture to add that above and beyond these sentiments which the sad 
occasion naturally calls forth, there has corne to e.ch one of us a sense of personal 
bereavement which, we say it with all possible resoect and duty, makes Your Majesty's 
sorrow out own. 
"We pray tbat the God oï consolation may eomïort Your Ma.jesty and the members 
of the Royal Family in their affliction.

2. We bave therefore taken the earliest opportunity of humbly expressing our 
sympathy with the Royal Family in their bereavement and out loyalty to out new

good conduct of our Cnadian soldiers bave called forth the highest encomiums from 
the several commanders under whom they have served during the arduous contest. 
4. We respectfull concur in His Excellency's opinion that the union of the several 
Provinces of Aust.ralia into one confederation, upon lines closely resembling those on 
which our own Dominion has been established, maïks another important step towards 
the conso!idation of the outlying portions of the Empli'e, and His Excellency may feel 
assured that this uniou calls forth out most sincere congratulations to the new common- 
wealth. 
5. ,Ve rejoice to lear, that His Excellency, acting on the oevice of His Ministers, 
had, previously to the great grief whmh has fallen upon the nation, tendered an 
invitation.on our behalf to His Royal Highness the Duke of Cornwall and York to con- 
clude his intended visit to Austr«dia by one to the Dominion of Cnada, and that 
Royal Highness has been plea,sed to signify his acceptance of the iu'itation. We share

usefulness as citizens of the Dominion.

Donald A. MacKinnon. 
That (counsel consenting thereto) we adjudged that the parties should pay their 
OWl eosts. 
We also hereby report :-- 
(a) That no corrupt practice has iCen poved to bave been committed by or with 
the knowlcdge and consent of any candidate at the said Election.

well, of South Rustico, John MacKinnon, of Black River, and Villiam lroctor, of 
Brackley loint, were severally proved to have been guilty of corrupt practices, that is to 
say, treating. 
(c.) That thece is reason to believe that corrupt practices, namely treating, exten- 
sively pcevai|ed at the Election to which the Petitions relate. 
(d.) We are of opinion that the enquicy into the circumstances of the said Election 
has been rendered incomplete by the action of the pacties to the said Petitions and that 
fucther em|uicy as to the e×tent such corrupt practices prevailed is desirable. 
We her«with append a copy of the notes of poceedings and evidence taken at the

In testimony whereof we have subscribed out na:nes this Eleventh day of February,

statement showing the amount of the deposits ruade by the several tenderers, &c.,

And the Question being put on the said Motion :--It passed in the Negative. 

On motion of Mr. Monk, seconded by Mr. Haggart, 
Resolved, That an humble Address be presented to His Excellency the Governor

Correspondence between the Italien Consul for Canada and the 19rime Minister or the

Ordered, That the said Address be presented to His Excellency by such Members 
of this House us are of the King's lrivy Council. 

Mr. Robinson (Elgin) moved, seconded by Mr. Richardson (Ligar) and the Question 
being proposed, That inasmuch as almost every mlle of rai[way in Canada has been aided, 
to a greater or lesser extent, by the Dominion Government, the local Legislatures, and 
the numerous municipal;ries through wh;ch they run, and large sums of money bave 
been given, as well as charters, conferring upon these rai]ways a valuab[e franchise ; 
That inasmuch as the railways of the country are continuously seeking legislation for 
the advancement of some particular interest, or for securing some specific object, wh;ch 
legislation occupies the rime of this House at a considerable cost to the country; 
Thaç inasmuch as such legislation, in order to b- effective for the purposes intended, 
should be well considered, both byevidence and personal inspection of the location affected, 
by the Members of this House, to the end that the best interests of ail parties concerned 
may be safeguarded ; 
That, in olxter that these ends may be satisfactorily attained, the different railway 
companies, for many years past, have gîven free transportation to all the Members of 
Parliament ; 
And inasmuch as such free transportation, comîng, as it does, from the railway cor- 
porations, no doubt with a view of affording every facility to the Members for obtaining 
the fullest information as to the needs and requirements, both of the railway corporations 
and the country, and, notwithstanding such free transportation is uniform to all the 
Members of this House, t5e object and intention is largely misunderstood by the people, 
and construed into corrupt intentions on the part of the railway corporations, thereby 
sub.:,ecting both the railway corporations and the Members of this Huse to an unjust 
and unfair criticism, wh;ch they are not always in a position to defend ; 
Therefore, in the opinion of this House, the present system of free transportation is 
unwise and undesirable, and should be discontinued, and a system substituted wh;ch 
would be fïee from the charges of corrupt intenti«,n or from adverse criticism ; 
That inasmuch as the railway corporations receive more than adequate compensation 
for that service as now rendered, this House is of the opinion that anAct sh«,ld be placed 
on the Stature book making it incumbent on all railway corporations receiving a franchise 
or Government aid,either in money or lands, to furnish free transportation to all Members 
of this House, upon the certificate of the Clerk of the House, and that no mi[eage 
indemity be hereafter paid by the Government to the Members vhile in attendance upor. 
their parliamentary dut;es; 
And a Debate arising thereupon; 
On motion of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, seconded by Sir Richard J Cartwright, 
Ordered, That the Debate be oejourned. 

On motion of Mr. Bell (Pictou), seconded by Mr. Kaulbch, 
Ordered, That there be laid belote this House, copies of all Terres, tenders and 
greements in connection with the allotment of contracts for the conveyance of mails

John and between River John and Hedgeville, ail in the Province of Nova Scotia; also, for 
a list of all contracts for conveyance of mails between points in the Province of Nova 
Scotia which have been awarded without tender since January, 1899. 

The Order of the Day being rend, for resuming the adjourned Debate on the Ques- 
tion, which was on Thursday last proposed, " That, in the opinion of this House, it is 
"expedien+: that all binder wine now held by the Government, together with all twiDe 
" that raay hereafter be manufactured by them, shall be sold direct to the fariner at a 
" price to cover the actu,l cost of raw m,terial and manufacture only, with one cent per 
"pound added, and that no twine manufactured or paid for out of the Dominion treasury 
" shall be sold or disposed of in any other way :" 
And the Question being again proposed :--The House resumed the said adjourned 
Debate. 
Mr. Oliver moved, in amendnent, seconded by Mr. Flint, That all the words after 
the second " that " to the end of the Question he left out, and the words "so long as 
" the Government continues to manufacture binder twine, the saine shall be offered for 
" sale directly to f,rmers up to 1st July in each year at cost of material and manufac- 
" ture, calculatiug wages on the basis of fait wages for free labour, aud that the

" the highest bidder after public advertisements," insertcd instead thereof ;

after "That" to the end of the Question be left out, and the words " xxhilst strictly 
" adhering to the fundamental principle of Canadian autonomy and refusing to adroit 
" that the intervention of Canada in South Africa has committed this country to any 
" future participation in the wars and policy of Great Britain, 
" This House thinks that the contribution of Cnada in the South African war, 
" both in armed help and public expenditure, entitles thc Canadian people to express 
" an opinion on the natter. 
" This House therefore humbly reminds His Majesty, King Edward VII, that the 
" glorious reign of his august mother, Queen Victoria, whose memory shall ever be 
" cherihed by Canadians of ail origins and creeds, was inauurated in bloodshed and 
" rebellion in this part of her dominions ; that peace and prosperity were subsequently 
" restored and forever when Her Majesty's advisers understood, as Lord Grey told in 
" his instructions to Lord Elgin, Governor of Canada, that it was ' neither possible ncr 
" ' desirable to carry on the government of any of he British Provinces in North 
" ' America in opposition to the opinions of is inhabitants ; ' that since thtt time, 
" Her .[ajesty has round in no portion of ber Empire a more faithful, devoted and 
:' contented people than her French Cana(lian subjects. 
" This House therefore exlresses the hope and desire that His Majesty's Govern- 
" mettt will endeavour to conclude in South Africa an honourable peace founded upon 
" the law of nations which guarantees independence to ail civilized peoples and upon 
" the true British traditions of respect to ail national and religious convictions and to 
" the spirit of colonial autonomy. 
" This House further declares that there is no necessitv for" sending any more 
" Canadian troops to South Africa, and that the enlistment o recruits for the South 
" African Constabulary should hot be alloxved to take place in Canada," inserted 
instead thereof ;

Mr. Parmelee, from the Joiat (A»mmittee of both Houses on the Printing of Parlia- 
ment, presented to the House the Fifth ltepot of he .aid Committee, wbich was read, 
as followeth :-- 
The Committee having in'estigated va-ious complaint,s setting fo'th tbat tbe'e is 
an unreasonable delay in the translati«,n, printing and distribut.i,n of Parliamvntary 
leturns and 12eports in F'ench, beg lvave to .ï-,6ït .--That after a painstaking enquiry 
they find that the comp[aints in question are amply justified 
12eturns and leports in French are printed and distribnted f'om six months to a 
year and a half afer they bave a[peared in English. In he ,pinioa of y,»ur Committee 
such a state of affairs is hot creditable to a la'liament i which the two languages a'e on 
the saine footi,g, nor just to the Members and the portion of the population requi-ing 
to use them. Your Committee a'e convinced that hot onl¥ i« some 'eform necesary, 
but that it might b • brought about with slight expense. With hat end in view, your 
Committee take the libe'ty ot reconmending :-- 
]. That so fro- as possible the De)artment:l Beports should be preparvd in a few 
weeks, at latest, after the close of the fiscal )ear. 
2. That i each Depa'tment issuin a long Report there h,)uld be a special trallS- 
lator, whose duty it should be o translate f'om the Engli-:h copy as fast as it is pre- 
pared, so that the English and French copy might go to the P'inting [3ureau c,ncur- 
rently. 
3. That in viëw of the fact that the work of the Bureau bas outgrown th facilities 
for handling it, an annex should ]»e built, afIb'ding sulficient room for a(|ditional plant 
and presses, and accommodation for all the hands required for the efficient and economi- 
cal working of the Bureau. 
In conclusion, the Çommittee desire to express thei" belief that if these recommem 
dations are car'ied out the translation, printing and distribution of Returns, Iteports 
and Documents in French could bc done so expeditiously t.hat all cause of compiaint 
would be removed.
