Mr. D. ROSS.

X do not think the hon. gentleman should be permitted to say such things in such a cowardly way, expecting that people will not be able to hear them.

Mr. D. ROSS.

I think it is myself, but I think the circumstances justify it. However, I will withdraw the word. The hon. gentleman made his statement in such a way that he did not expect me to hear it: I hear the representative of the Great Northern. I do not think the hon. gentleman should have made a statement of that kind, and I want him to explain now why he did make it.

Mr. DUNCAN ROSS.

I agree with the hon. member from Prince Edward (Mr. Alcorn) that his estimate that the proclamation should be twenty-three days In the hands of the returning officer before nomination day is a reasonable one. If he gets it twenty-three days before nomination day there will be sufficient time except in Comox-Atlin if the returning officer happens to live in Atlin. But, does not my hon. friend see that if it requires twenty-three day's before the nomination it must necessarily require twenty-three days after tbe nomination so as to distribute tbe ballot boxes and swear in the returning officers? That would make forty-six days from the time that the returning officer receives the proclamation until tlie poll can be held.
