GAME PRESERVATION, UNORGANIZED TERRITORY.
The MINISTER OF THE INTERIOR (Hon. Clifford Sifton) moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 46) to amend the Unorganized Territories Games Preservation Act, 1894.

REQUEST FOR BI-LINGUAL COMMISSIONER.
Mr. GAUVREAU-by Mr. Pope-asked :
Whether the hon. Minister of Railways is aware that in making investigations in cases of damage to property on the line of the Intercolonial Railway, between Montreal and Ste. Fla-vie, the commissioner sent from Moncton was an official who neither spoke nor understood the language spoken by those living in the province of Quebec, and who had suffered such damage?
If so, is it the intention of the department to remedy this faulty and expensive mode of proceeding; and how does the department propose to attain that end?
