Before the Bill is reported, may I ask, Mr. Chairman, what became of my amendment ?

Mr. DEPUTY SPEAKER.

There were two objections to it-one that no notice had been given of it, the other that it was not relevant, in my opinion, to the question under discussion.

The mere giving of a notice does not bring these amendments before the committee.

Mr. DEPUTY SPEAKER.

I presented Mr. McCarthy's, because he is the promoter of the Bill. But if hon. members absent themselves from the committee, and expect that I will place their amendments before the committee, they are likely to be disappointed.

Bill, as amended, reported.

George William Fowler

Mr. FOWLER.

There is a phrase in that relating to these mortgages-' not inconsistent .with law.' That seems to suggest that otherwise these people might make a mortgage inconsistent with law. It seems to me this phrase should be eliminated.

These are the usual clauses put in steamship incorporation Bills, and they were put in by the committee.

That does not seem to be a justification for putting in words such as these.

Bill reported, and read the third time.

Mr. EMMERSON moved that the Bill pass, and the title be ' An Act to incorporate the Maritime Railway and Transportation Company.'
