Sir WILFRID LAURIER.

There is nothing now before the House except the voting of supply, and I understood from my hon. friend the other day that before going on he wanted to have the Auditor General's Report. We have furnished something on which we can take supply to-morrow. I now beg to move that the House do now adjourn.
