Perhaps the Minister of Inland Revenue can tell us whether or not there is to be a vacancy at Vancouver?

Mr. TEMPLEMAN.

The report in the newspapers regarding the intended retirement of Mr. Bowell, at Vancouver, is absolutely untrue and unwarranted. Mr. Bowell has not the slightest intention of retir ing, and, if he had, I am sure Mr. Hender-Mr. PDGSLEY.

son would not be an applicant for the position.

Some resolutions reported.

Mr. FIELDING.

I desire now to move concurrence to the items which the committee have passed this evening in order that the clerks may be able to prepare them for inclusion in a Supply Bill for tomorrow's house. I shall then ask you to allow me to drop the Supply Bill from the record in order that I may reintroduce it to-morrow.

Mr. STANFIELD.

I do not propose to object t-o this item, but I am sorry that the Minister of Railways is out of the city, because I wish to call his attention to an accident that happened on the Intercolonial a few days ago at Folleigh, in which three men were killed-an engineer, a fireman and a brakesman. The engineer leaves a family of five small children, and the brakesman a family of seven small children. These families, I believe, are left almost destitute outside of a few dollars which they receive from the insurance fund. I would ask the Minister of Finance I to call the attention of the Minister of Railways to the matter, and see if he cannot put something in the supplementary estimates for these people.
