Unionist

Hon. Mr. REID:

This is a claim for damages caused by fire, and is made by a Mr. MacMillan. The claim has not yet been paid. The file shows that correspondence was had up to May 7, of this year. The management take the ground that the evidence is not sufficient to justify their paying the claim. They say that the evidence is only circumstantial, and their solicitor, so far, has not felt that they would be justified in settling the claim. However, I do not feel that I should say more than that at the present time.
