A Bill recently went through the House relating to the Independent Order of Foresters. That order had discovered a defect in tlieir legislation whereby the rights
of those who belonged to the order in days gone by were jeopardized, and a Bill was introduced in the House within the last few weeks to remedy that defect. The attention of the Ancient Order of Foresters was directed to their Act of incorporation, and they found that it contained the same defect. In order that those who belonged to the provincial order should have the rights intended under the Bill that passed in 1898, this petition is presented for an amending Bill. It is exactly the same Bill as is contained in the first four clauses of the Independent Order of Foresters' Bill, which has passed the House.
