Mr. MURPHY.

certain volunteers to purchase their volunteer land certificates on behalf of friends. On inquiry being made it was found that in the case of Mr. Anderson he had undertaken to procure the certificate of Mr. George Morse, of Montreal, and in that of Mr. Ferguson the certificates of Mr. Frank H. Prior, of Toronto, and Mr. B. K. Snider, of Montreal. In explanation of their action they represented that they were not aware that in so doing they were violating the provisions of the law. The Dominion Lands Act provides that employees of the Department shall not locate scrip, but makes no pre-vision against their purchasing bounty warrants. While the action of the officials was in fact within the letter of the law, it was considered to be so contrary to its spirit that both men were suspended for a month without pay, and notice was issued to all officials and employees that dealing in volunteer bounty warrants would be followed by instant dismissal.
