The PRESIDENT - In accordance with the practice laid down for honorable senators last year by myself in this matter, I desire again to intimate that I do not propose to have the report read. They would probably not be able to follow the report. The practice now is to publish the report in the Journals of the Senate, and then every honorable senator can see for himself what papers it covers, and make any remarks he pleases on the motion that the report be adopted. It has been found that the new practice not only saves time, but meets the convenience of honorable senators generally, and is more conducive to the proper conduct of business than the old practice of having a lengthy list of papers read out to the Senate.
