Ottawa, Ont., May the Sen- ate yesterday in reply to a question by Senator Macdonald, of British Co- lumbia, who asked if the government had acted upon his suggestion that former governor generals of Canada be invited to visit the Dominion at the Quebec celebration. Hon. R. W. Scott said that there was an unwrit- ten law, but one which had never been broken that a governor general should never visit Canada after his term had expired.

He would be pleased to have the election bill, seems to be gradu- ally growing less critical. There were no specific developments today to warrant any definite statement that the situation had materially changed, but there is an evident feeling on both sides of the House that the pres- ent issue is not one which would war- rant the dissolution of Parliament with much of the important part of the sessional agenda still practically untouched. On the one hand the government is anxious that the pub- lic business of the country should not! gunce. an inquiry uud would move in tho House tomorrow that the matur be referred to a committee on privileges and elections or to a special com- mittee.' if so desired.

Several hundred people were on the square last night to sce tho Scotch English internation id football match, and saw thc stur- dy champions of Scotland go clown to rlefeat before thc Southron four goals to one. The game was fast ami clean but at nearly every stage of thc game the white shirts had thc best of the argument. Sumner played his usual star game in Soul, the only score against him being on a penalty kick. Ferris and Firlh were almost impreg- nable. Smith. Chcswick and Ash- croft on the half back, line fed the forwards well besides materializing a strong defence. The forwards were fast, playing with a dash and accur- acy that was hard to withstand. Thc whole team playexl a pood combina- tion and were always on the bail. Thc Scots did not play well togeth er, were slow in getting away, ami inaccurate in passing. Individually they were strong but as a team they were not equal to their opponents. Oarr ami Biimiu up a strong de- fmre until the letter's Injury put rainc nnd disorganized him the team.

Tho .seroiid game was long and even- ly contested, each team having its full share of the play. Both goal- keepers made sensational savo and it was not until thc scrand half was well spent that left forward Smith put a swift bounder past Carr and nntl Craig. Holbcrton scored thc third in short order. Tn a few min- utes, thc Scots got their only goal on a penalty, and within a few min- utes of time headed ano- thpr in after a very pretty of work in which Ferris, Chiswlck and Fairbrother prominently.

The second object arises from the recent judicial decis- cron. ions in England to the effect that when bonds are pledged, they are deemed to have issued find the power to issue them cc-ases. The bill would make it clear that the pledging of the bonds will not interfere with the right to sell later. Mr. Fielding said these judgments may af- fect the other compani s and general legislation may be required later on. The third object of tho bill is to fa- cilitate erection of tho railway and avoid the delay by providing that the j government may issue a letter of cred- it to the G.T.P. for an amount not exceeding one million dollars, out of the proceeds of the guaranteed bonds. The expenditure of this money must be limited to the objects set forth in the act respecting the N. T. R. and must be duly accounted for. If it is found that the money has been used for other purposes it must be made good. The Grand Trunk, the parent company will be made responsible for any money wrongly spent. In reply to questions put by Dr. Sproule, and Mr. Foster, Mr. Fielding said this arrangement does not cre- ate nny new obligations or add to any former obligations.
