The PRESIDENT - It is an unsigned communication, which the Senate cannot receive, and, therefore, it is not open for discussion.


Senator Rae - I do not want to discuss the communication, sir, but to ask you a question.


Senator de Largie - May not an honorable senator ask a question on that communication, sir ?


The PRESIDENT - Let me hear what it is.


Senator Rae - I simply wanted to know, sir, apart from your ruling the communication out of order on the ground you did, whether it was in order for the other House to return the Bill to the Senate with a title different from that which we sent out of the Chamber?


The PRESIDENT - That is not a question which should be answered, because the Bill has not been returned to us at all. This is not a message from anybody.
