Mr. J. B. MORIN (Dorchester).
Mr. Speaker, before the Orders of the Day are called I would like to draw the attention cf the government to the complaint of a gentleman about some ballot boxes that he has in the county of Dorchester. He writes as follows :
Sainte-Claire, February 9, 1905.
J. B. Morin, M.P.,
Dear Sir,-Will you kindly interest yourself for me in the proper quarters to obtain an allowance for me for 21 ballot boxes which have been placed in the post office since 1891 by the late Dr. C. A. Lesage, who was the returning officer for Dorchester ? These boxes were new when I received them, and I have taken good care of them. I have never used them, and I would be glad to have them taken away and to be compensated. Will you please look into that matter for me, and tell me what I ought' to do ?
