Mr. GALLIHER.

I must admit, with reference to this matter, that probably the default was due to the solicitor of the company. Mr. Irving is the manager of the company. They obtained an Act of incorporation, and have already expended on construction something like $200,000, and they now ask to have the time for completion extended. If the petition was not presented within the time limit that is due to an oversight on the part of the solicitor, and it seems to me that the shareholders should not on that account be precluded from deriving any benefit from the moneys they have expended, as will be the case if this petition be not granted.
