Senator GRANT (New South Wales) . - I desire to endorse what has already been said regarding Senator DrakeBrockman. The honorable senator has not been a frequent contributor to our debates ; but honorable senators will agree that when he has spoken he has directed his best attention to the subject, and given us something to which it was well worth while listening. I shall miss him from his position here, and I desire to take this opportunity of saying that I wish him success in the future.

One of my first duties in this Senate was to propose you, Mr. President, as a fit and proper person to occupy the position of President of the Senate. That confidence has been justified; you have done well in the position. Although at times you have had to rule me out of order, I have no doubt that most honorable senators will agree that you were right. Youhave bad strenuous duties to perform, and you have performed them well. I shall be glad, indeed, to see you restored to your general good health, and taking your place on the floor of the Senate in your usual mischievous way. I join with the Leader of the Senate in wishing both you and Senator DrakeBrockman the best of health in the future.
