Sir FREDERICK BORDEN (Minister of Militia and Defence) moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 103) to incorporate the Canadian Artillery Association.
He said : Mr. Speaker, in reference to this Bill I would like to explain that it is similar to a Bill introduced some years ago by me at the request of the Dominion Rifle Association, and provides for the incorporation of the Canadian Artillery Association, as the Bill to which I have just referred provided for the incorporation of the Dominion Rifle Association.
The object of incorporation is to enable tiie association to hold its property without the intervention of trustees, and to facilitate the carrying on of its educational work in connection with the Canadian field and gar-
rison artillery- The association works in harmony with the Artillery Branch of the Militia Department, and since February, 1S76, when it was first organized, has proved of great value in assisting in the training of the field and garrison artillery throughout Canada.
Motion agreed to, and Bill read the first time.
