In regard to the petition of W. H. Rosevear, mayor of St. Lambert, and others of the counties of Vercheres and Chambly, praying that special subsidies be granted for the improvement of public highways. I beg to state that this petition is against Rules 85 and 86. In the first place it is not properly signed, and in the second place, as the petition asks for subsidies, it cannot be received. The same decision will apply to the petitions of the Rev. L. J. S. Sirois, and of the Rev. A. Audette, because they are asking for subsidies. A petition asking for subsidies is out of order.
