Mr. POPE.

The circumstances ot Prince Edward Island are such that I hope the conference will agree to give us such a number as we can divide amongst our three constituencies. Nature as well as the original settlement of the island has made three counties, and it would give rise to much difficulty if ^we had to adjust five members to three counties. 1 cannot ask it as a matter of right but as one of expediency, as one without which it is impossible for us to carry the measure in Prince Edward Island.

Topic:   SUPPLY-CALGARY TOWN SITE.
