Mr. LEMIEUX:

Yes, he resigned, and was promoted to the Senate, if it is promotion-and one would think it was, judging from the anxiety displayed by so many members of the Tory party. Five gentlemen only have been appointed, Mr. Speaker, and I have met in the lobbies of this House some members grinding their teeth and willing to give but one chance to the master of the Administration. If they are not appointed before the adjournment to fill some of the vacancies, I verily think the Government will be defeated.

Topic:   THE GOVERNOR GENERAL'S SPEECH.
