Mr. W. T. R. Preston did not visit Canada in the month of October last, but in the month of November. He arrived here about November 17, and came by permission of the Minister of the Interior (Hon. C. Sifton) in order to discuss with him private matters connected with the 'Department of Immigration. There has been no friction, so far as the government is informed, between the officers of the High Commissioner's office and Mr. Preston, and no complaints have been made to that effect to any member of the government, so far as I know, nor to any other minister. Mr. Preston has no jurisdiction over any members of the staff in the High Commissioner's office, and his duties are confined to immigration work.
I. C. R.-FUEL INSPECTOR.
Subtopic: W. T. R. PRESTON, IMMIGRATION COMMISSIONER.
