As the hon. Minister of Trade and Commerce and the leader of the opposition are not here, I think that item might stand.

Mr. SPROULE.

We are now in our seventh month of the session. From the intimation given us some days ago, the government intend bringing down railway resolutions which may have a very important bearing on the railway Bill we are now considering. Will the right hon. gentleman give us any information as to when the railway resolutions are likely to be brought down, and the supplementary estimates ?

The PRIME MINISTER.

The supple-mentaries will be down early next week,

an'd the railway subsidies shortly afterwards.

Mr. TAYLOR.

When is the dead-lock with the Auditor General likely to come to an end ? A number of members on both sides find it very inconvenient on account of not being able to draw their indemnity or something on account. Judging from the accounts in the newspapers the Auditor General says it is not his fault.

The MINISTER OF FINANCE.

The question is a pertinent one, especially as this is exhibition week, and hon. members may require a dollar or so to take part in the festivities. But I am sorry that I cannot give any information. As the matter now stands, it is in the right and power of the Auditor General to establish a dead-loek and it pleases him to do it.
