In the first fiscal year mentioned, no claim was made and there was no payment. In l'.il4-ir) the amount was paid as Sir (^ImrleH attended sittings ot the privy council ill AufeMLst and September, ]!U'I. In 1!)iri-Lf!, the vote was "special allowance to Sir Charles Kltzpatrlek to cover expenses in connection with Iho Judicial conimlttcQ of the privy conncll. Claim v/as made for this iiinount in monthly Installments hy the dopaVtmont having charge oC vote, "and as attendance at the sittings at Ihe privy council had been omitted as necessary condition of payment, the claims were allowed as in other cases of si)BciaI allowance." In l,fllG-17 the amount was paid tor the samo reason as In 1915-f�. In 1917-lS there was a special allowance of $;{500 when "atCendlng sittings ot the judicial committee ot the' privy council." No claim was made for the paymentot this amount as Sir Charles'dld not attend the sittings of the privy council. Restates Charges. On the ordSrs of the day Dr. Edward.?,. rising to a question of privilege, read a denial of his charges against Sir Charles FitzpatricK- which appeared In the Ottawa Citizen, yesterday. Ho then went on to read from Hansard the statement which he ANCHOR-DONALDSON LINE POPULAR SERVICE Canada to Glasgow For full information apply to Agent* r Company's Office, 270 Main St., Winnipeg' had made to the c'tccl that the sum of ?2f>U0 hud been voted to the chief justice of Canada for tliree years running for a certain specified purpose, whicli had not boon carried out. Dr. Kdwards then quoted from the au-ditor-Beilernl's report to the eftei;t that In Iftin-lli the vote had gone through and the money been paid. The following year the same thing had taken place. ^1n neither pt those years had the chief Jfistlce .iitfendod the sittings ot the privy council in Ungland. In the fiscal year 1917-lS live amount was not drawn. 'Ihu statement of the uuditor-gcn-eral, said Dr. Edwards, provQfl that his assertion. If not correct, was at ally rate two-thirds true.' Therefore, Sir Charles' declaration In the paper that It was "absolutely false" was untrue. 11. B. Morphy asked whether it was the intention ot the governniont to allow Sir Cli.irles tp keep thi.s money which he admitted he had improperly taken. Referred to Premier. Sir George Foster, who was leading the house, replied that he would have to refer the matter to the premier.

Borden Makes Statement On the Railway Situation Ottawa, Jlay'l,").-At tho afternoon sitting of the house. Sir Robert Borden said that ho thought it advisable to give a statement with rcganl to the railway situation In Canada at the present lime and during the last flf-ti>en years. The^liouse resolved itself into committee on the act respecting the Canadian Northern Railway system .ipd the premier continued Ws statement. iri l!i03 and 11)04, he said, the construction of tho National Transcontinental and Grand Trunk Pacific was started. At that time tho Canadian Northern had obtained considerable development in the western sections of tiie country and had begun to feel tho necessity tor expansion to the east. It seemed beyond question that It an arrangement had been made at this time between the G. T. R. in the east and the C. N. R. in the west whereby tlie two systems would have boon combined, both railways would now bo in good condition and be able to lend money to tho country instead of borrowing. That course, however, had not been adopted and the project of the N. 1\ R. was proceeded,with. ' Grant Aid Shortly after this the government \ found it necesaary to grant aid to the C. N.
