I see it in another light. They ask an extension of time. It may be that we granted them something a year ago that we ought not to have granted. Give them the privilege of extending their line according to our fixed policy, but we should not grant them an extension of time in which to acquire water-powers! to which we should never have, perhaps, given them a right, not at least until we determine just what policy we will adopt as regards new charters. Let them have the time they were granted last year, and if they exercise their powers within the time let them keep those. powers, but do not to-day extend that time until we have determined on a general policy. Therefore, inasmuch as we may devise some policy within a day or so, let this Bill stand as the other Bills stand.
