The PRESIDENT - I do not think that fraud is insinuated.


Senator Clemons - Not in part 7 of the question ?


The PRESIDENT - I do not think so. Surely Reuter's Telegram Company can charge for a message, and then code the words !


Senator PULSFORD - Does Senator Higgs disclaim an intention to cast a slur upon the firm?


Senator Higgs - I must ask the honorable senator to give notice of that question.


Senator Pearce - I asked you, sir, whether the question of Senator Pulsford was a proper one to ask, in that it charges Senator Higgs with making an insinuation of fraud or sharp practice against this firm.


The PRESIDENT - I do not see that Senator Higgs has made such an insinuation, and, therefore.. I do not think that the question of Senator Pulsford was correctly put.
