Thomas Osborne Davis
Mr. T. O. DAVIS (Saskatchewan).
I beg to move, seconded by Mr. Galliher :
That that portion of the 16th report of the Select Standing Committee on Railways, Canals and Telegraph Lines reporting the preamble of the Bill (Nio. 157) to incorporate the Brandon, Saskatchewan and Hudson Bay Railway Company, not proven ; be referred back to the said committee for further consideration.
This Bill came up at the end of the meeting of the Railway Committee to-day and when the motion on the preamble was put by the Chairman I demanded that the yeas and nays be taken. The requisite number of members stood up, but the Chairman did not take the yeas and nays and declared the preamble lost. I consider that the Bill should go back for further consideration.
