Sir. TAYLOR.

It would be better to go into supply first, and let the Minister of Railways and Canals take the latter part of the day. He has been taking the earlier part of the day hitherto.

If the hon. gentleman will promise me that when the proposal to go into supply is made we shall immediately go into supply, I will make a bargain with him.

Mr. GALLIHER.

But the Committee on Standing Orders meets to-morrow and my reason for bringing the matter up now is that I wish it to be dealt with to-morrow and reported on. I spoke to Mr. Speakei' with regard to it.

I have only to say that there should be some time when finality is reached with regard to these petitions. The rules are plain enough and are available for everyone who wishes to learn what they are. We met on the 12th of March, and it is now the 25th June. Yet these petitions are coming in as though this session were to go on perpetually. There should be some time when we reach finality with regard to these petitions.

Mr. GALLIHER.

I may explain for the information of' the hon. gentleman (Mr. Sproule) that some weeks ago I obtained the usual permission from the House to present the petition notwithstanding the fact that the time has elapsed. The delay in presenting it has arisen in this way-the Act had to he confirmed hy the British Columbia government, because that company are asking in British Columbia for an extension of the time for the construction of their line, and there was delay until the Act was passed.
