1.   Sir HoraceTozer.

2.   May 8th, 1903.

Senator HIGGS - Arising out of the questions and answers, I desire to ask Senator Keating how it is that he told the Senate the other day, that, according to the terms of partnership, we were entitled to two representatives on the Pacific Cable Board, why the answers to the questions do riot tally, and whether there is any confusion in the mind of the Postmaster- General or his assistants?

Senator KEATING - Neither the' PostmasterGeneral nor myself had anything to do with the selection of the representatives of the Commonwealth on the Board, and the information which I then gave to the honorable senator, like that which I have just given to him, was supplied by the permanent head of the Department.
