H. .Stevens, of Vancouver, rose to ask a question, but Mr. Carvell refused to let bim put it, declaring that he had the floor, and Mr. Stevens could speak after he '\va,s through. Continuing, Mr. Carvell said he was not old enough to remember the family compact, but his grandfather was. It was a small thing then to send a man to jail. He doubted the juTls-diction of the House to coroiTiit him to jail. and informed that ho would be removed to the jail. He bow.ed and retired in custody of the Sergeant-at-Arms.

In closing, Air, Carvell said that there would be no havm done to defer judgment fcr a few days. It was not a public question.
