Mr. ROCHE:

I agree that unless members of the House had looked up the Orders in Council as they were laid upon the Table, they would not be acquainted with them. I shall give an explanation of some of them.

P.C. 3093. Order in Council, 6th January, 1916. This order applies to Dominion lands within the railway belt mainland, in the province of British Columbia. Provision has been made by previous orders of the 17th of October, 1914, and the 19th of June, 1915, for reckoning as residence spent on a homestead the time of an entrant on active

military service, who made entry prior to enlistment, and for the issue of patent to such homesteader if disabled, or to his legal representative in the event of death.

This order provides that in case of an entry made after enlistment, or date of recall to the colours, that such entry may be protected during the continuance of military service, and for three months after discharge.

Similar provisions to the above have been passed under the authority of the Dominion Lands Act. The Dominion Lands Act does not apply to the railway belt in the province of British Columbia, which is governed by regulations passed by the Governor in Council, under authority of chapter 56, R.S.C.

P.C. 217. Order in Council, 4th February, 1916. This order applies to Dominion lands within the railway belt mainland, in the province of British Columbia. This order may be divided into two parts.

1. It extends to Dominion lands in the railway belt, British Columbia, the provisions of Order in Council of the 26'th August, 1908, which provides that homestead entries taken up under the Dominion lands Act may be made by proxy.

2. It provides that proxy entries made for Dominion lands in the railway belt, by any person serving with the forces of Great Britain or any of her Allies, is to have the same standing as if it had bean made in person.

Mr. ROCHE:

I am afraid that will take a long time. There are several dozens of them. The Orders in Council were laid upon the table of the House, in accordance with the provisions of the statute during the first fortnight of the session, and, as a irulte, it is a formal matter to have Parliament approve of them.

If I were to enter into an explanation of every Order in Council passed, I am afraid that we should not have much time for any other work. *

Mr. ROCHE:

This Order in Council covers a number of amendments in the details of the forest reserve regulations which were found to be necessary after they had been in operation for a little over two years. The amendments make better provision for dealing with fire, provide for making more clear certain portions of the provisions of the regulations in regard to timber permits, for extending for not more than one year the time of a timber sale where it is considered in the public interest, to make clearer some of the provisions in regard to grazing, and to provide specially for cases where cattle graze for part of a season on the forest reserve and for the remainder of the season on lands outside, for slight amendments to the hay permit regulations so as to prevent confusion with the regulations on Dominion lands outside of the forest reserves, and for -extending the right to a permit for a period not to exceed five

years where improvement of the meadow is made by the permittee by drainage or otherwise; for altering the regulations in regard to fishing so as to make them more fully in agreement with the general fishery regulations.

Some regulations are also made by Order in Council in regard to Dominion lands adjacent to waterfalls on the Winnipeg river. Some time ago we changed the Dominion Lands Act so that in the future lands adjacent to water-powers should be leased, not sold. This Order in Council refers to ' mines and minerals under sudh lands adjacent to water-powers.
