Rodolphe Lemleux said he had been informed a few days ago by the minister of justice that no petitions had.' been received asking for the release of Thomas Kelly, of Winnipeg.

Mr. Doherty said that Mr. Lemleux must have misunderstood him, because petitions asking for the release of Kelly had been received on several occasions.
