VACANT SEATS IN THE DAIL.

On last Saturday week the President announced that the question of the vacant seats would be put on the Order Paper for the following Monday. It has not appeared yet. Can the President state when it will be taken?

My information is that the condition of the country scarcely warrants the holding of elections, and there is interruption by reason of the partial suspension of the delivery of letters. I am informed by the Postmaster-General that the delivery is normal, but I am inclined to doubt that.
