Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

To-day I directed the attention of His Royal Highness the Governor General to an article which appears in the press of to-day, representing that an official of the British Government has been sent from New York to see the Governor General respecting certain matters mentioned therein.
I am assured by His Royal Highness the Governor General that the statement which appeared in this morning's Citizen to the effect that an official of the British Government was sent from New York to see him respecting alleged malpractices in connection with Canadian orders placed in the United States is untrue.
