Mr. CLARK:

Briefly, the explanation isthis. No private bills at this session were filed within the prescribed time. The matter was referred to the private bills committee,., and that committee recommended that the

Questions

penalty of $200 be remitted. However, they overlooked this phase, that when bills are presented there is another penalty payable, and it was purely an oversight on the part of the committee not to recommend that thi3 penalty also be remitted. I might say that those bills which have been presented might still be withdrawn and taken to the Senate and thus escape this penalty. The penalty has been withdrawn in one respect, and I suggest there is no reason why it should not also be withdrawn in the other.
