When the item of clocks comes before the House I would like to ask who is in charge of the clock that

advises the members of this House when they should attend here? Is it the Minister of Public Works? He is very anxious about clocks down in Lunenburg and other Grit ridings all through Canada, but he is very religiously forgetful that the members have a clock on the tower of the House of parliament that is not at present running. On certain occasions the clock has pointed to ten minutes to ten and judging by the attendance on the side of the House that the hon. minister is leading at present one would conclude that the members think it is ten minutes to ten in the morning instead of ten minutes to ten in the evening when they should be here. The clock is at present pointing to ten minutes after eight. If there is any attention paid by his department or by himself to the requisites of the people of Canada he should have the clock that is to guide us as members representing the people running in proper order instead of standing still as it is at present.

As there is one item in Quebec to stand we might allow these three items to stand.

No, let us put them all through, and we will leave the large one. Three Rivers, as hon. gentlemen know, was perhaps not almost completely, but very largely destroyed by fire in June, 1908. The public buildings were burned and this is for the purpose of erecting a new public building. Three Rivers is a very important place as will be seen from the fact that we had a postal revenue last year of $13,156; customs duties $180,947.89; excise $63,707.71; weights and measures $1,682.05; electric light inspection $157.50; money orders issued $49,173.80; money orders paid $112,378.52; imports $1,792,394.
