Friday, 17th June, 1904.

The Select Standing Committee on Standing Orders beg leave to present the following as their eighteenth report :-

Your committee have considered the petition of John F. Stairs and others, provisional directors of the Alliance Bank of Canada, for an Act to extend the time within which to obtain a certificate from the Treasury Board, as required by section 14 of the Bank' Act, and find that while no notice has, as required by the rule, been published in the ' Canada Gazette,' the committee in view of the fact that no interests are likely to be affected by the proposed legislation, recommend that the 51st rule be suspended in reference thereto.

As the time for presenting private Bills has expired, your committee recommend that that portion of the 49th rule which limits the time for presenting private Bills be suspended iu reference to the foregoing Bill.

Your committee have also considered the petition of the Rio de Janeiro Light and Power Company, Limited, praying for leave to present their petition for an Act authorizing them to acquire, construct, &c., lines of railway, &c., outside o? the Dominion of Canada, notwithstanding the expiration of the time for receiving such petitions, and they recommend that the necessary leave be granted.

All which is respectfully Submited.

Rt. H@

That from this date to the end of the session government orders have precedence on

Mondays immediately after questions to be put by members.

He said : I stated the other day to my

hon. friend the leader of the opposition, that when I moved this motion to-day, I would give him some information as to the legislation which we proposed to introduce during the (present session. , In the first place, I stated that we proposed to move some amendments to the present election law. My hon. friend the Minister of Justice has that Bill ready, and it will be introduced early next week ; perhaps Monday or Tuesday, but not later than Wednesday. I hope so at all events, though I cannot speak with certainty as the Minister of Justice is not here to-day.
