Mr. GRAHAM:

The managers of the

upper house told us quite frankly as regards the amounts and terms of payment that they would make no change and, if a change was made, the Senate would defeat the bill. Under those circumstances, the managers from the House of Commons, having the preamble deleted by the consent of the Senate, having the words " in straitened circumstances " added as causes for paymen' of demands over $500, secured for the depositors the sure payment of the amounts named in the bill as now to be accepted. Otherwise the depositors of the Home Bank would not have got one farthing.
