Mr. HENDERSON.

Of course, it is no use for me to raise the objection to this Bill which I did in regard to the first Bill; hilt during the past week or ten days I have noticed that Bills have been allowed to stand under similar conditions. I had a conversation with the solicitor of the respondent this afternoon, and he was very anxious that this Bill should not be pressed through the committee stage to-night. He opposed the Bill in the Senate, and intended to oppose it before the Private Bills Committee of the House of Commons ; but, unfortunately, the notice of the meeting failed to reach him. He desires to have another opportunity of dealing with the case before the Private Bills Committee, and he would like to have the Bill referred back for further consideration. I am not going into the merits of the case, because I do uot profess to be familiar with it ; I have not even read the evidence. But I am told this is a case in which there is no direct evidence of actual adultery ; it is a very special case, and on that account the solicitor is anxious to be heard before the Private Bills Committee. If the House would entertain the proposition to-night to refer the Bill back to that committee, I would be glad to move it; but if the House will not entertain that proposition, I would ask hon. members to be good enough to allow it to stand at least until Monday, when the promoter will probably be here, and when my request to refer the Bill back to the committee can be considered.

Mr. CALVERT.

The promoter of the Bill, Dr. Johnston, as most of the members are aware, has been ill for a week or ten days, and may not be here on Monday ; but I do not know any reason why the Bill should not be allowed to stand.
