Mr. AMES.

I would like to ask the hon. Postmaster General whether any complaints have reached him as yet in reference to the unsanitary condition of the branch post office on St. Catherine street in the city of Montreal, whether it is his intention to renew the lease for the post office without requiring the premises to be put in a proper sanitary condition, and whether the Health Department in Montreal has not on several occasions found fault with the condition in which the premises are kept and no notice has been taken of its complaints.

Mr. AMES.

I do not think the letters Were registered, but there were letters sent out by the city treasurer containing cheques for interest due to certain parties, which cheques disappeared and which were forged and collected to the detriment and loss of the parties for whom they were intended.
