An interesting Incident of the day was a dialogue between Premier Hor-den and Sir Wilfrid lyaurler, relating to an agreement entered Into between the Admiralty and the Canadian government tor the construction ot a number of small cruisers for the Admiralty in Canada. The interchange was the statement by Mr. Borden that an assurance had been roccivod that .something ot this kind would be done later on.

Premier Borden said that, in view of the fact that the United States government has not made any reply to the protest of the British government, it would not be wise to enter Into a general discussion ot the matter.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier made an effort to ascertain from the Mi-nister whether there had been any additional agreement In writing between the Canadian government and the Admiralty. He read a despatch from London, crediting Premier Asqulth with a statement that there had been an agreement for the construction of several light cruisers, which would be placed in Canada.

Postmaster-general gainst special stamps Issued by chnrllabic bodies. Including the Tuberculosis association. He stated that large sums at money hud been ccpended In printing them.
