Mr. OAR YELL.
I will read rule * O ' of the Senate, and we will see what that rule says. I want to treat the hon. gentleman fairly, I want to give him all the evidence and the law I can on the question, and while I do not hope to convince the hon. gentleman, yet, Sir, I will try to make my own position tenable before the committee Rule 'O' is as follows :
Condonation, collusion or connivance between the parties is always a sufficient ground for rejecting a Bill of divorce, and shall be inquired into by the committee. And should the committee have reason to suspect collusion or connivance and deem it desirable that fuller inquiries should be made, the same shall be communicated to the Minister of Justice, that he may intervene and oppose the Bill should the interest of public justice in his opinion call for such intervention.
