Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I understand private bills do not appear in the regular order for to-day, so I presume it would not be possible to take up private bills. I do not know of any other legislation, so that the meeting will be purely formal, just to receive any report that may come from the Senate.

Motion agreed to and the House adjourned at 6.35 a.m. (Saturday).
