Mr. LANCASTER:

I beg to move.:

That owing to the advanced period of the session, Rule 28a, paragraph a, subsection 3 of Rule 89, subsection 1 of Rule 103, and Rules 114 and 115 relating to Private Bills be suspended for the remainder of this session, in accordance with the recommendation contained in the tenth report of the Select Standing Committee on Railways, Canals and Telegraph Lines.

I might say in support of the motion that this was moved yesterday by the hon. member for North Ontario (Mr Samuel Sharpe), chairman of the Committee on Miscellaneous Private Bills, and recommanded both by that committee and the Committee on Railways, Canals, and Telegraph Lines. I could read the rules we are suspending, but it is sufficient. I think, to say that they are those which *make it necessary to go through formalities which entail delay, and if we are going to prorogue at the time contemplated, we would not be able to put these Bills through unless the motion is carried.

Mr. LANCASTER moved:

That the amendment made by the Senate to Bill No. 46, respecting the Western Dominion Railway Company-Mr. R. B. Bennett-be concurred In.

He said: This does not materially change the Bill as we passed it. It is probably a matter of extreme caution on the part of their Honours of the Senate. They have specifically repealed a former time limit. I think our Bill repealed it by implication. However, it makes no actual change in the Bill.

Topic:   SUPPLY.

Mr. LANCASTER moved:

That the amendment made by the Senate to Bill No. 36, to incorporate Northern Pacific and British Columbia Railway Company-Mr. Taylor-be referred to Select Standing Committee on Railways, Canals and Telegraph Lines.

He said: This is a peculiarly worded

amendment, and I think it should be scanned by the committee before the House concurs in it.

Mr. LANCASTER:

It is a Bill to confirm an agreement between the Canadian Northern Railway and the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The agreement, however, is not completed. The Bill was not discussed in the committee because the promoters said they were not able to proceed with it, and asked leave to withdraw it.
