Jailbird Officials The case of Captain Landry of Ar-ichat, Nova Scotia, who wns appointed to a government position after serving a term for forgery, was then further considered. I'remler Horden, wh(� adjourned the debate lust night In order to ascertDln the facts ot tlie taee made a statement. He said that on .Tune 19, an agent of the Marine do-pattment drew the iittontlon of the department to the fiict that Uindry, was t|icn In prison un-a criminal charge. On June 20, .1. A. Gillies, tlie Conservative candidate for KIchmond, was advised that the govcniment pi'o posed to dispense with the services of Landry. GUlieB was u.sked to recommend another." On .Inly .1 Mr. Gillies advised the depiimncnt that the duties ot th(!'offlce were b(ilng satis factorlly discharged by one Langlols. On August 20 an order was passed dispensing with the sevvlcea ot Landry. Mr.' Borden stated thai the government had taken action ns soon as pos-alble after It had learned the circumstances in ccnnectloh with the case. As tq,Landry's release from prison. Air. Borden said he had looked over the record, and there was nothing in It to suggest that it was due to political consIderBtlon. I>andry was let off on tlcket-oMeave, because it was reported necessary for hini to undergo a serious operation. Mr. White, who was acting Minister ot .lustice at the time, was not aware that Landry liad been appointed to a public post. Mr. BordenLadded.thaUit was open to any member to'ovamlni^itUe recoixls In the Justice deiij^rimOntc�; i: v Hon,.C.-J,-j^p%��y, Minister of .lustice, sijld li0;7ha(l"ho(leslre to conceal ".nythlng In ^fegnncctlon with the case. U was a w.ell'^'iiialiliBlied' practice, however, that tor obviQUa reasons, documents concerning tlei(et8 0t.leave, could not be made public. H(5 could not believe that_ the members of 'the Opposition who'had charged'that he had been actuate(}^. by political motives, could be serlo'us. Suiili action would be doapicabte, and no man oc ciipying the pnsltlion ot minister of justice would stoop to such a proceeding. ;;� Mr. Doherty mciv'od the adjournment ot the debate.

The speakers on Thursday will, in all probability he .Sir Wilfrid Laurier, lion. Geo. V^. Kos-ler, Hon. Oco. 1'. Graham and Hon. .1. D. llazen. This probably will fill in the entire allernooii unci evening ' sittings and Dr. Micltw'l Clark, Red Deer, will move the adjournment aitd continue the' debate when the liousc . meets on Friday. j .Just before tlic liniise rose Mr. llurnham'.s motion tor a committee ' to in(iuire into the system ot old pcnsion.s tor (Canada was adopted.

The mimlier of dismissals in all were 15B, and of these some IIB were marked "no cause specified" and about ten other dismissals were attributed to reduction ot tlie stalT. The reason for tlie oilier ones were drunkenness, neglect of duty, ineincicncy, shortage of cash and other causes. The (hst business taken up.when tile house met was the consideration, [in committee, .of :Prcmier Borden's ] bill increasing the pay ot ofTicors and men of the . Nprthwest Moiiiiled Police.
