Mr. FIELDING.

Unless the power were expressly given the company they could not have it by inference. There are many things that it is not desirable that this company should do, yet we do not expressly forbid them-we merely take care not to give the company authority to do them. If there is anything in the Bill authorizing it to issue debentures, it should be considered ; but I am inclined to think it would not be wise merely to put in a lot of ' don'ts.'
