Mr. SCOTT.

This Bill has been passed by the Senate. I have no direct or definite information in regard to it, but I have no doubt the action of the promoters will be explained when it comes before the select standing committee to which it will be referred.

LT.-COL. H. H. McLEAN.


-Mr. SAM. HUGHES asked : 1. Did the District Officer Commanding of No. 8 military district recommend Lieutenant-Colonel Jones, of St. John, for position- of brigadier at Camp Sussex ? 2. If so, was his recommendation set aside, and Lieutenant-Colonel H. H. McLean appointed instead of Lieutenant-Colonel Jones ? 3. Was Lieutenant-Colonel H. H. McLean absent from Canada lately, and did he procure leave of absence ? 4. Was Lieutenant-Colonel McLean in Ottawa at the time he was in orders for Camp Sussex, viz., 11th June, ror when ? It has been usual to make comparisons with the fiscal year preceding that under review and, indeed, with other years. I shall not take up the time of the House by making comparisons between the fiscal .vear 1903 and any previous years except the one just preceding, that is the year ending June 30, 1902. A comparison wit'h 1902 gives the following results:


EARNINGS.


I903 $6,324,323 1902 5,671,385 Increase $ 652,938


WORKING EXPENSES.


1903 1902 .. $6,196,653 .. 5,574,563
