(Translation.) Article 105 refers to lotteries. According to section 6, subsection D, the ' Credit Fonder du Bas-Canada ' and the * Credit Fonder Franco-Canadien ' do not come under the operation of that article. The principle of the Bill is to have these restrictions done away with as regards the joint stock companies for loans and savings, and to put on a footing of equality with the ' Credit Fonder du Bas-Canada ' and the ' Credit Fonder Franco-Canadien ' all other joint stock companies which may have been incorporated under the authority of our provincial legislatures.
Bill read the first time.
