Mr. JELLIFF:

I am not a member of the miscellaneous private bills committee, but I understand that these bills were filed in the Senate, and were heard and passed upon there, after the time limit for the presentation of petitions to this house had expired. I understand that in some of the cases involved the applicants for divorce are very poor people who were unable to pay the deposit.

I would Hike to ask the Prime Minister what grounds there are for the report which appears in the press that the Pacific cable has been sold to tihe Eastern Telegraph Company, that a meeting was held in London attended by a representative of the Canadian government, and that Canada acquiesced in the sale. Would the Prime Minister tell us if that is true, and if so the extent of this sale and purchase by the Eastern Telegraph Company?
