Mr. C. A. WILSON:

The number of cases to be tried in a district has nothing to do with the number of jurors. In a rural district, for instance, a panel of 40 will be summoned, and in Montreal and Quebec a panel of 60. By a provision in the law, if the cases are numerous, another panel can .be summoned, and we sometimes see as many .as three or four panels in the same district.
