House, and protected by its charter, has such a loose way of carrying on its operations as under certain circumstances to cause serious consequences. It appears that Lord Dundonald placed confidence in the message delivered by that company. I realize that this being a private matter, there is no claim. I just wish to draw the attention of the House to the position in which the Beil Telephone Company stands in relation to the public of Canada. I may say that when the true condition of affairs was realized, His Lordship immediately ordered a special train to convey him to Alexandria, and the celebration took place as it was originally planned.
