St. Petersburg, March Russo-Finnish bill giving the Duma- authority over Finland was introduced in the Duma today. After a debate it was referred to a committee of 21 members. opposition leaders urged im- mediate rejection of the measure on the ground that it constituted a viola- tion of the Finnish constitution. The Octoberists defended the bill, insist- ing that imperial legislature alone had authority capable of dealing with the complex Russo-Finnish relations. The reference of the proposed leg- islation- to a committee was carried by a -majority of Mohammedans, Pro- gressives, Nationalists and Conserva- tives. The minority concluded the 'Poles, Constitutional Democrats, La- borites and Social-Democrats. letters produced by Mr. It varies from day to day, some times one cleric and sometimes another. Then there was no one clerk in charge of this Bowers would be able to tell you that better that I. He is the chief clerk. Now, then, going on, there is a telegram here marked "A from Mr. Minty me, saying "Regret unexpected events -make It very embarrasiing for parties there to get away owing to pending negotiations. Think your people should in mutual interest make strong effort to come here this week." "Now I find on the 'back of that telegram is -written in my hand writing an answer to him saying that it was absolutely impossible to do as he suggests, that any personal advice to him "is to see that his people act as indicated in my last telegram with out delay, and to wire me on receipt of this. 'Now, that indicates two tilings. In the first place I must have sent -that telegram from my house, probably dictated It over the phone, after what I intended to dictate over on the 'back of this telegram. That likely would be eo, and that is the reason why the clean copy of it is not here.

I don't remember more than it happened to be attach ed to the letter. Do I understand you, then, to say that these were the only documents that you have any actual knowledge of having been destroyed, whether purposely or 'Mr. John stone, you are right in that.

The copy of the letter was, so far as I recollect, shoved in 'between the pages of this draft mortgage and draft act because t refers to the giving of them, pro mi s- ng legislation of that character, and might be permitted to say here, if am not going outside the scope of his discovery matter, that I drafted ,hat letter of the .premier's of -Nov. 14th, 1908, and that is that draft the 14th, 1908. and Chat Is how that draft comes to be on my files. I drafted t following the draXt of a letter that Mr. 'Lash had submitted on behalf of he Canadian Northern in connection with this same matter of guarantee >onds. His letter, however, went a little stronger than this, and I toned down that letter from it. -That IB the only qualification! These documents with the pin marked 14, were subsequent- ly dratted from that copy of this orandum. I kept one copy for my file and sent one to Mr. McLeod. The original of the agreement, however was never in the government possess sion, and no one ever saw it to knowledge except myself. When was the copy made, Mr I could not just tel you. I think it was just about the time that tihe legislation was going through, and I insisted on seeing the original document to find out. swha Mr. Clarke was getting paid for th bonds. And that would be in the earl} spring of last year, would couldn't place it closer. IMr. Justice Harvey: It as dated iAug ust 19th, I am mistaken about that.

To the best of my memory 'it .was about the time that Mr. Clarke and Mr. Minty and Mr. McArthur came back here Jn September, 190S, last, about the same time as these other letters that I have been referring to.

Mr. Minty was in the city, and there is no reply 'to It because any reply to it was per- sonal. 'He was right here. Now, this is -the matter I want to come to. There is a letter, there is a memor- andum, for :A 35, referring to a letter directed to me this year by the solicitor for the company. It Is a memorandum for the executive council. It is not dated, but my re- memberance is that it was sent down by me to the executive council the day after, September llth or Septem- ber llJth, and it speaks of a letter di- rected. 1D09, that would 1909, yes. It speaks of a letter that ihe sent me. Now, that letter is not on the file here, and it wae on the file here and I took it off the file for the reason that I tell you. The letter was a letter sent by Mr. Minty to me at my house. Mr. "Minty and myself had throughout these negotiations, from back in 190S, been dealing back and forward, not at arm's length at all, not only in a friendly way, but en- deavoring to assist each otiher as .much as possible in connection with this kind of a transaction because it was the first time I had had any ex- perience In drawing documents of this kind, and I think that it was the first time he had had any, and we got into pretty Intimate relations. He sent me a letter, and that is the letter re- ferred to. Mr. Justice Harvey: What Is the number of that? Not to be Made Public. :He sent me a letter, not as I ap- prehended, at all as deputy attorney general, but a letter as S. B. in which he went into generally a good many things about his own com- pany, and I found that on this file when I was going over it as far as I now remember for the purpose of pre paring that memorandum for Mr. Cross which was Jn as an exhibit I did not know how it had got there. I could not remember -because It was intended to get on a public file at all. Mr. Minty would never in the world have written It to me If he had for a moment Imagined It would get on a public file and T re- garded the letter, whether rightly or wrongly, as >my own property. I knew that from the relations between Mr. Minty and TIK-; each other as we had been endeavoring to assist each other, asking each other questions. I Xnow from these per- sonal relations that Mr. Minty was justified in expecting that that per- sonal letter he had written to j should not be pet on a public file and I remember that I made this excerpt five or six of them. Miss Shea Harbottle, Miss Robinson, Cameron and Miss Chatwdn. Miss Chatwin was more of a clerk than a stenographer. She was the account- ant. Would any one of the various clerks have access to the files for the pur- pose of arranging would have access to them. In other words, you have, practi- cally made an affidavit of documents? have made as clear an affidavit of documents as I know how to make. Are there any other documents in your office referring to this No, i do not think there can be any. I cannot remember any. The file was really a box. The box Is not here but there were, now I remem- ber, some letters, newspapers, news- papers that Mr. Bennett flourished in the House, found In the box. They were marked fugitive papers? they were not fugitive, the ones you flourished were papers that had got loose In the box. There was a pin through It, and some other papers Obtain work in civil life, and I am original copy that was" made before i powerless to help them. the typewritten one was that was only a pencil memo, and I it from that. I made it in 'Mr. Clarke's room at the Alberta Hot- el. Unless there is something else that you have made a note of .1 can any further information, Mr. Johnstone. I saw the original copy of the agreement in the Alber- ta Hotel. I asked Mr. Clarke to let mie see the original agreement. He showed me the original and I read it over. I didn't see anything of im- portance in it, except this clause "which refers-to the amount that the the bankers were to pay for the I made a copy of that clause "too in the Alberta Hotel. 'Did you keep any copy of that let- let, too, Mr. there any copy made of There was a copy of it, and sent to -Mr. Minty.
