Unionist

Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

I have examined the special report of the Clerk of the Crown in Chancery in respect to the election for the electoral district of the Yukon Territory, and I have spoken concerning it with the jight hon. gentleman who leads the Opposition. It seems the proper course to refer the returns to the Select Standing Committee on Privileges and Elections. I, therefore, move:
That the Special Return of the General Returning Officer to the Clerk of the Crown in Chancery for Canada concerning the election of a candidate to serve in the House of Commons for the Yukon Territory be referred to the Select Standing Committee on Privileges and Elections with power and authority to consider the same and the several documents therein alluded to and to report their conclusion and determination thereon to this House.
