Senator MILLEN - I hardly think that my honorable friend expects an answer to that inquiry. I am stating a business proposition to my honorable friends on the other side, and whilst I am at all times quite willing to differ with them on matters of policy, I think it would be rather foolish for us to " bite our noses off in order to spite our faces " if, in a matter of this kind, we can meet the convenience, of each other. I put the position in that way, and if my honorable friends will give some intimation now that they would prefer the Senate to adjourn to the 22nd instant, I shall ask permission to amend my motion.

Senator McGregor - If the members of the Government are prepared to take that responsibility, and meet the convenience of the majority of the Senate, I do not think any one is going to oppose the alteration.

Senator Mcdougall - I intend to oppose it.
