Mr. PREFONTAINE.

Parliament voted $1,000 for a lot to be known as the 'Seamen's lot ' in Fernhill cemetery. It is used for the interment of seamen dying in the marine hospital. The grant was insufficient, and the cemetery is in bad condition. We have made an arrangement with the authorities of the cemetery that this $1,000 will be paid, and they will for ever maintain the cemetery in good condition.
Post Office-compassionate allowance for the family of the late Mr. Patrick Callery, letter-carrier at Montreal, who was accidentally killed w'hilst on duty, January 25, 1905, the amount to be applied for the benefit of his widow and children in such manner as may be determined by the Treasury Board, $1,000.
