Mr. HERRON.

1 am surprised at the statement made by the Minister of Agriculture, and judging by it he cannot be well informed as to the manner in which the Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).

census is being taken. In one instance, near where I live several heads of families went to the enumerator for their district and complained that they were not included in the census, and they were told by him that as he had no authority to go outside certain lines he could not include them. I have heard very general complaints of th& same sort from people who are perfectly reliable.

Is any progress being made on the McLeod post loffice? I have brought this matter to the attention of the House on several occasions. It is in a most disgraceful condition.

Mr. HERRON.

I am not a lawyer, and I do not know what would be the effect of the clause proposed, but for my own part, personally, I would be prepared to accept any amendment accepted by this House, knowing that nothing could be worse than the present situation so far as our part of the country is concerned. I would accept this Bill on trial and be glad of it, for it can be no worse than what we now have. I am sorry it is to stand over, because farmers are sustaining losses every day by having their cattle killed or injured on the railways, and in no case have the railways paid damages foT the last three or four years- and they do not make pretense of paying as the law is now; they completely ignore the claim of the farmer for the loss of his cattle.
