Mr. LEWIS.

The Bill is very simple, and provides that ships of over 500 tons carrying passengers, shall have a wireless telegraph apparatus on board, and an officer who can manage it, and a freight ship of over 1,200 tons shall be similarly equipped. Bill applies to sea-going and ccasting vessels registered in Canada.

Mr. FOSTER.

I desire to call the attention of the ministers to the fact that the Public Works orders in council and the Interior Department orders as to increase of pay to civil servants, have not yet been brought down, and that a similar request which was put in the form of an order for a return of all the other departments has not been honoured. I hope the Secretary of State will get after his colleagues, and have that information brought down.
