Rt. H@

There is no information in the audit office as to the action of the returning officer regarding the payment of claims against him in connection with the election of January 22, 1908. By section 310 of the Dominion Elections Act it is enacted that the fees and allowances shall be paid to the returning officer and shall be distributed by such returning officer to the several officers and persons entitled thereto, which distributions he shall report to the Governor in Council through the Secretary of State. The amount necessary to make such payments was sent to the returning officer in two Sums, viz.:

February 26, 1908 $842 05

March 28, 1908 176 89

Mr. ARMSTRONG.

Up to the time I put the question on the Order Paper, the deputy returning officers and other parties had not received their money. I think that some of the ministers should find out what can be done to get these people their money.
