Secretary for Captains.
These are the signatures of practically all the owners and captains of sailing vessels in the province. But this matter affects not only tile province of Prince Edward Island, but also the province of New Brunswick and the province of Nova Scotia, in which these companies are incorporated. It also applies to vessels from the province of Quebec. I do not know whether any vessels from the province of Ontario coal there or not. This matter was referred to the Legislative Assembly of the province of Prince Edward Island at its last sitting, and I received a few days ago a letter from the clerk of the Legislative Assembly to the following effect:
The Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island,
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, March 27, 1908.
A. A. McLean, Esq.,
House of Commons.
Dear Sir,-Acting under instructions of the legislative assembly of this province, I beg to inclose a copy of a resolution unanimously adopted by this House, and am requested to ask that the matter referred to receive your most earnest and immediate attention.
