Mr. FISHER.

It is evident from the programme set out by the commission for the coming year that they would require a larger sum than is provided in the main estimates. The staff consists of a secretary in subdivision (a) of the first division; two officers in subdivisitn (b) of the first division, two in (b) of the second division, and two in (b) of the third division. There are some slight office expenses for stationery and printing. I will bring down the memorandum of the chairman of the commission on the second reading of the Bill.

They were appointed under the Civil Service Act, Mr. James White, geographer of the Interior Department was transferred to thi3 office, as I think was also one of the stenographers, and they are all appointed under the Civil Service Act. .
