Mr JAMES - Has the Postmaster-

General noticed a report in to-day's press to the effect that at an inquiry into the claim by certain postal officials for an increase of wages a witness said that members of the House of Representatives were given precedence over public subscribers in connexion with telephone calls? If this is so, are such members given some secret sign or password to entitle them to this privilege? Cannot all honorable members be given this sign ?
