Mr. COPP:

But only in the same electoral district. It seems to imply that he could apply in another election district.

His residence will be taken as where he last resided. It is residence here, not domicile.

RESOLUTION OF THANKS BY THE BRITISH HOUSE OF COMMONS READ BY tt xt ivm UOWFJ.L.

Hon. NEWTON W. ROWELL (President of the Privy Council) : I beg to lay upon the Table a copy of resolution of the British House of Commons thanking the troops of the Dominions overseas for their services during the war. While the resolution was passed at the last session of the British House of Commons it has only just come to hand, and as that part of it relating to the Dominion is brief I might read it for the purpose of putting it on record:

That the thanks of this hoard be accorded to the gallant troops from the Dominions overseas, from India, and from the colonies and protectorates, for the promptitude with which they responded to the call of justice and freedom, and for the noble part that they have played, in conjunction with their comrades of the British Islands, in securing the triumph of right over wrong.

DOMINION FRANCHISE ACT.


The House resumed from April 12 consideration in Committee of Bill No. 12, respecting the election of members of the House of Commons and the electoral franchise.-Hon. Mr. Guthrie. Mr. Boivin in the Chair. On section 87-effect of corrupt practices, disqualification, etc.

Mr. FIELDING:

Is the period of disqualification here the same as in the present law?

Unionist

Mr. GUTHRIE:

In the Act at present in force the disqualification period is eight years. Before that law was enacted the disqualification period was seven years. I think it well to fix the period at seven years and make all the provisions of our law conform. I therefore move that the word "eight" be struck out and the word "seven" inserted.

Section as amended agreed to.

On section 88-Candidates not convicted unless corrupt practice done by himself, agent, or with his knowledge-Proviso.
