ST. BONIFACE MONEY ORDER OFFICE.


Mr. LaRIVIERE asked : 1. How long is it since the money order office of the town of St. Boniface has been closed, and for what reason ? 2. Would it not be advisable to reorganize that office, and open a post office savings bank in connection therewith ?


?

The MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS (Hon. James Sutherland) :

Money order

business was temporarily suspended at St. Boniface on the first instant owing to certain irregularities in the post office accounts, but will probably be resumed at an early date. The postmaster at Winnipeg has meantime been instructed to pay orders on St. Boniface. St. Boniface is already a savings bank office, and saving bank business will also be resumed as soon as possible.

MR. L. W. HERCHMER'S PENSION.


Mr. SCOTT-by Mr. Macpherson-asked : 1. Has the right honourable the Prime Minister received a copy of a resolution adopted by the North-west legislature, on motion of Dr. DeVeber (Lethbridge) and Mr. R. S. Lake (Grenfell), on Monday, 15th June, 1903, in the following terms Resolved, that in view of the long and eminent services rendered to the North-west Territories by Mr. Lawrence W. Herchmer, during the fourteen years he was in command of the North-yvest Mounted Police, this House is of the opinion tlat as a special case Mr. Herch-mer's pension might be increased and made equal to the sum which he would have enjoyed as retiring allowance, had he come under the provisions of the Officers' Pension Act (N.W. M. P.) now in force. 2. Will the government take action to meet the suggestion expressed by the resolution ?


?

The PRIME MINISTER (Rt. Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier) :

I have not seen the resolution on which Mr. Scott makes his inquiry, but I understand that one has been passed by the local legislature of the character indicated in question.

Lt.-Col. L. W. Herchmer was superannuated from the 1st August, 1900, on an allowance of $1,144 per annum, representing twenty-two fiftieths of his salary as commissioner of the North-west mounted police- his service having been twenty-two years.

The Officers' Pension Bill came into effect on the 1st July, 1902. Had the Act been in force when Col. Herchmer was retired, he would have received a pension of $1,584 per annum, instead of $1,144 under the Superannuation Act-a difference in his favour of $440 a year, but it is not intended to make the Act retroactive.

If so, was the duty on the consigmnent paid under the general tariff, or under the preferential tariff ; and did, or did not, Mr. Blain's German teapot come in improperly and obtain the benefit of the British preference ?


?

The MINISTER OF CUSTOMS (Hon. Wm. Paterson) :
