Sir WILFRID LAURIER.
The details are iu the report of the Secretary of State, page VI. But this information I have received indirectly from the Secretary of State.
I was also asked for some information with regard to another item in the pension list, that is the amounts paid to pensioners in lieu of land. This is such an old item that it is somewhat difficult to get the information ; hut I understand that the amount paid so far has been $8,900. A pensioner gets $19.14 per annum. So far as we can ascertain, there are only two now living.
I was also asked for information about the item in the estimates of $2,000 granted to the Academy of Arts. This amount is paid to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, at Toronto.
