METAL SHINGLE AND SIDING COMPANY.


Mr. GALLIHER moved that Bill (No. 207) respecting certain patents of the Metal Shingle and Siding Company, Limited, be placed on the Order Paper for the second reading this day be a greed to. Motion agreed to. Mr. GALLIHER moved that in view of the late period of the session Bill (No. 207) respecting certain patents of the Metal Shingle and Siding Company, Limited, be now read the second time and referred to the Select Standing Committee on Miscellaneous Private Bills. He said : The reason for this motion is that Monday will be the last day of the Private Bills Committee. The Bill has passed the Senate. Its purpose is to allow the company holding the patents to pay now the amount they should have paid some little time prior to this. It was owing to a mistake of the people in their office that the money was not paid when due. The holders of the patent are a Canadian company who have manufacturing establishments at Prescott and Montreal and it was only through inadvertance that the money was not paid in time to the patent office. They have paid all the necessary fees and have been taxed $500 up to the present in fines. Motion agreed to.

?

Hon. A. B.@

AYLESWORTH (Minister of Justice) moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 210) to amend the Northwest Territories Act. He said : The purpose is to provide means for better trial of causes of action which may arise in the Territories. The proposition is to confer jurisdiction on the courts of the adjoining provinces, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, leaving the choice to the plaintiff, but conferring on the courts in each province the power to refuse to entertain the action unless it appears that it can be more conveniently tried by the courts of that particular province than of any other.
