Air. THOMPSON:

I accept my hon.

friend's statement, but I do not think there was a case of that kind. But, even so, it was only an interim appointment; Judge Macaulay was only out of the territory for five or six months and at the expiration of that dime he returned and took his place on the bench, while Air. Black, who had been acting as interim judge, stepped down and resumed his duties.

Air. THOMPSON:

I admit that if there were appeals that would probably be the procedure, but I have never heard of a case being taken from the public administrator in the Yukon {o the judge of the Territorial court. However, if there were such a case what would be the result? The man who . had, this fantastic grievance, if he had a grievance, would simply have to wait until Judge Macaulay returned. While we all understand the procedure in the court, what would my hon. friend think of this? He speaks of an appeal from a judge to the same judge. Judge Macaulay for years had been acting in the Yukon Territory as Police Court Magistrate, again meeting the argument advanced by the hon. member

for South Renfrew, and this was done while he was- a minister of the Crown and for the purpose of effecting economy. While Mr. Macaulay was sitting as Supreme Court judge he was also acting as Police Magistrate. The culprit was apprehended by the Northwest Mounted Police, brought before Judge Macaulay, sitting as Police Magistrate, he had his preliminary trial before Judge Macaulay as Police Magistrate, he was committed for trial by Judge Macaulay as Police Magistrate, and then was tried by Judge Macaulay as judge of the Supreme Court.

Mr. THOMPSON:

I tell the Americans that it is not lighted as well as our section

is. I think the section we are responsible for is lighted very much better; in fact, I always feel safer when I get within range of our own lights, although it is all fairly well lighted.
