TURKEY GROWS UNEASY
Plain Speech of Britain's  Foreign  Secretary Alarms tne buit.in���May

Constantinople. March 3.���The Sultan and his advisers are in an ugly
frame of mind over the menacing words
used by Sir Edward Grey, the liritlsh
foreign secretary, in the house of commons the other night regarding Macedonia. Several conferences have taken
place on the subject and more are to
follow. The hint Is freely thrown out
that Britain seems bent on getting into
a war in the Levant and unless the
other powers stand rigidly aside from
these "machinations" there will be
trouble.
While this is rather in the nature of
bluf, sim.rt observers, have little doubt
that the Turks will fight in preference
to scuttling from Europe, even if
threatened by the Christian nations in
a solid phalanx. However, the Sultan
docs not expect warlike developments
Immediately. What he does expect, is
that Sir Edward Grey will put so much
pressure, both on Christian and Turkish governments', us to finally cause an
explosion   of   some   kind.
The attitude which the German ambassador here will assume is anxiously
awaited in the palace. Last fall Prince
ltueiuw. speaking in the relehatag, said
such nice things aboul ibe Sultan's sagacity, and "a. dent Interest in his Macedonia subjects," that the Sultan rally looked for continued support from
Germany in resisting effective reforms.
Now come telegrams about Ambassador Metleinich's speech In London.
Which seems to side with England In
admitting the terrible stale of things in
Macedonia and desiring quick radical
changes.

Council Spent Four Hours

AMICABLE   AGREEMENT
Part Payment Likely To Be Made to
Allis-Chalmers-Bullock Comptny
���Property Accounted For.
A long council meeting last night was
devoted to considerations mainly ot
finance, including detailed consider-
eration of the year's estimates ln
committee of the whole, a conference with K. S. Lennle, counsel for the Allis-Chalmers-Bullock
i ompany, and consideration of the bylaw regulating the salaries of the present staff of civic officials.
The mayor's report on missing city
property showed, to the gratification of
ail. that there waa no ground for Irresponsible reports, in the press and on
.he streets, that former city officials had
been profiting at the city's expense.
The council met at 8 o'clock with all
the members present. The minutes of
the last meeting were read and adopted.
The finance committee reported accounts to the amount of $483.75 which
were  passed and ordered paid.
Aid. Procter reported on the work
doue by him in connection with the new
debenture bylaw required. He was
thanked by resolution of the council
and the sum of $50 was voted in part
payment of his expenses.
Ctiief Deasy of the fire department reported three alarms during February
with no loss. He recommended a danger signal at the corner of Baker and
Josephine streetB. -Hia report was referred to the fire water and light committee.
A formal report was presented by*
the city clerk of the appointment of
license   and   police   commissioners.
A report from the local branch of the
antituberculosis society was received
aud filed.
> Two letters were read from R. S.
Lennle, solicitor for the Allis-Chalmers-
Bullock company. The first was in regard to the agreement as to the installation of a cement draught tube. During the discussion of the first letter,
the mayor asked Mr. Lennle, who was
present, to assent on behalf of the company to the plans now entertained by
the city. Mr. Lennle replied that such
assent must depend on the answer by
the city to the company's request for
payment of the money now withheld
by Ihe city Including the city's bond.
Mr. Lennle uddressed the council at
length, going over the history of the negotiations between the city and the
company, including the latest report
from Cecil B. Smith, consulting engineer, which declared the governor to be
adequate and satisfactory. He pointed
out that the contention upon which the
city had chiefly relied In withholding
the last payment was wiped out by Mr.
Smith's report. He submitted that the
Al is-Chaliiiers-Bullock company had
legal rights in the matter as well aa the
city corporation.
Mr. Lennle repeatedly assured the
council that be was not, for the company. Insisting upon abstract legal
lights, but submitting a question of fair
dealing apart from the results of litigation.
It. A. Brown, replying to the mayor,
thought that within 30 days the city
would bo ready for a decisive test. He
was allowing. In his estimate, for un-
foiseen contingencies.
Mr. Lennle remarked that such was
exactly what was suggested by It. H.
Zavltz a year ago. Mr. Zavltz had asked for a shut down to examine the
gates, assuring the city that the governor was all right. Cecil B. Smith had
now declared that the governor was all
right, thus endorsing the position all
along taken by the company.
To the mayor's request that the company should readjust the shaft Mr Lennle stipulated that he must not be understood as undertaking on behalf of
the Allis-Chalmers-Bullock company to
agreo to continuous or repeated readjustment of any part of the plant He
conceded that the plant was not yet acceded by the city but contended that
parts of It should have been accepted.
Mr. Lennle asked definitely for a pay
ment of $10,000, leaving over $9,000 in
tlie hands of the city. He assured the
mayor that such payment would not be
regarded as In any sense an acceptance
by the city o' the plant or any part
of It.
Mr. Lennle repeatedly assured the
council that he was not speaking for the
company of Its legal rights but solely
from the point of view of equitable arrangement between the city and the
company, a position which was accepted
by the mayor.
The mayor suggested that the company accept the city's latest proposals
In regard to weir and draught tube,
paying $10,000 without prejudice and
letting  the old  contract Btand.
Mr. Lennle assented. He was prepared to submit a new agreement. But
as the mayor did not wish to complicate
matters by submission of a new agreement, he refrained from submitting it.
At the mayor's suggestion the matter
was then left to a committee to be appointed by the council. The reference
was made, on motion of Aldermen
Procter and Patenaude to the mayor
and the fire, water and light committee.
An alternative resolution, offered by
Aidermen Hale and Kerr, that In event
of any disagreement the city proceed
with the weir and draught tube, was
deferred at the mayor's suggestion, he
undertaking to call u special meeting
In the event of any disagreement with
the company.
Bylaw No. 181, granting certain privileges to the Canada Zinc company was
then reconsidered, finally passed and
adopted.
Bylaw No. 182, fixing the salaries of
city officials, was then read by title
twice.
Bylaw No. 183, the new Curfew bylaw,
was then read twice by  title.
The council then went Into committee
of the whole with Aid. Hale In the
chair, to consider bylaws 182 and 183.
The committee reported progress on
Bylaw No. 181 and asked leave to sit
again.
Bylaw No. 183 provided that children
under the age of 15 must not be on the
street after 8.45 p. m. from May 1st to
December 31st, or after 7.46 p. m. from
January lBt to April 30th, and a fine of
$10 was attached as the penalty. Bylaw
No. 124 was repealed, being replaced
by bylaw Nu. 183.
The committee then rose and reported.
Bylaw No. 183 was then read a third
time unanimously, and Aid. McMorrls
gave notice tor the final motion.
Leave was given to the committee to
sit again on Bylaw No. 182.
The mayor reported on the missing
city property, that most of it had been
accounted for. The Ashdown Hardware
company had purchased a large proportion, the Wood-Vallance company a part,
other city departments had been allotted part of the balance, ex-Mayor Gillette still had a small proportion, W. P.
Tierney had purchased a part, some had
been used and destroyed In the moving
of the court house,, some was loaned to
the Canada Zinc company.
Aid. Procter remarked that he was
very glad of the account as some newspaper comment had suggested fraud on
the city, a suggestion for which he
found  no justification.
The mayor agreed with Aid. Procter
and remarked that had the late council
prepared such a report they would have
saved the present council a very disagreeable task.
Two small accounts, of $119.50 and
$34.00, against W. G. Glllett and the
Canada Zinc company respectively, were
reported.
The report as a whole waa adopted
and filed.
Tho public works committee presented a revised list of requirements.
The council then considered the estimates as a whole id committee of the
���whole with the mayor In the chair.
On the committee's rising and reporting, It was resolved that five per cent,
of the receipts from the recreation
grounds be charged for all events except
those held under the auspices of the
agricultural society. Aid. Hale objected
on behalf of the local sports, but It was
agreed <hat such should be dealth with
separately.
A storehouse for city tools was authorized.
On Aid. Kerr's motion work on the
street ln front of the Home hospital
was authorized to give employment to
married men at $3 per day of 9 hours.
The council'then adjourned to Monday, March 9th.

message declining to give the name of
the alleged gambler whose letter implied that money would be used to prevent the enactment of the anti-racetrack

to the state."

THE   COUNTER-ATTACK.
Yesterday we had occasion to expose
for the amusement of our readers a specimen of the lowest type of Libera;
journalism, the kind that replies to
proof of stealing by a simple blunt denial. We thought that method ot pel-
omlc was confined to the lowest rauks
even   of   Liberal   Journals.
We are sincerely sorry to find our
esteemed local contemporary deliberately   placing   iiself on   the  same  level
as ihe Nov? Westminster News, from
which  We quoted yesterday.
Our coutcinpoiury prophesies another
victory for Sir Wilfrid Laurler, We
have no quarrel with thai. Prophecy
Is tlie privilege ot all. But lie continues:
"Reosnt happenings in the political
world do nol. so far as we can sec. even
Justify the anticipation of a reduction
ln the l.aurler majority. The campaign
of Blander that lias been waged Incessantly by the Tory opposition for
months past has not resulted in any
advantage to the slandcrhund, as tho
little coterie of Tory mud-sllngcrs nave
been happily designated. In fact, the
results have been anything but satisfactory to the Tories, tbelr fishing ex
pedltions usually resulting In the unearthing of some new evidence of Tory
corruption or Ineptitude during their
term of office. This was notably the
case in the timber lands discussion, the
latest of tho alleged "Bcandala" to receive attention."
"Campaign of slander" Is not a new-
expression. It was used by Sir Charles
Tupper to describe the deliberate falsehoods published about him during the
Campaign of 1896. The word "slander-
bund," which commends Itself to our
contemporary's taste as a "happy designation"   was   coined   during   W.   it.
Hearst's municipal campaign in New
York City. The companion word which
will no doubt strike our contemporary
as equally happy was "plundorhuud."
When our contemporary states that
the recent revelations, including those
of the granting of immense tracts of
valuable timber lands to companies
that exlBt only as aliases of Liberal
ministers, senators, members and their
friends, have disclosed only "Tory ineptitude and wrong doing," it is wilfully uttering a plain falsehood. We
avoid saying deliberately because deliberation implies intelligence, and there
Is no symptom of intelligence in such
transparent mendacity.
Within the space of two years the
Liberal cabinet has undergone material changes In its personnel. The most
Important was the replacing of Mr. sifton by Mr. Oliver lu the department of
the Interior. Mr, Sifton entered parliament in 1896 penniless and in debt. Today he 1b one ol tile wealthiest  men in
Canada, If investigation of the Interior
department during his administration
were permitted by sir Wilfrid Laurler
and the Machine the secret of Mr. Sif-
ton's fortune might lie revealed. Mr.
Oliver haa simply continued the methods of Mr. Sifton without a tithe of
the   latlcr's ability.
Even with the public accounts committee muzzled us closely us the ministers dare, it has been shown that Ihe
limber resources of the west have been
divided among tlie spoilsmen, and our
contemporary, with cheerfulness recklessness, declares that the revelations
are all of "Tory Ineptitude and wrong
doing."
We are not concerned now to defend
details of administration of twelve years
ago and earlier. Hut, if it could bo
proved thai as many thieves were maintained III tlie Conservative service prior
to I8IIC as now grace tlie court of Sir
Wilfrid Laurler, to offer that as a defence for the crimes now being perpetrated would be mere Impudence. For
ibis feature our contemporary Is hardly
in blame,   it is the only reply available
and  the example  has  been   set  by  Mr.
Ayleswortli and Mr. Fielding.

mlKslnn. the Country has suffered a ills

GERRY-HARRIMAN.
Southern    Pacific    Magnate's    Daughter
Married  to   Bostonlan.
New York, March 3.���One of the most
brilliant weddings of the winter took
place in Grace church at noon today,
when Miss Cornelia ilarriman, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Edward H. Hariianin,
was married to Robert Livingston Gerry
ol" Boston, in tlie presence of a distinguished company, which included muny
persons prominent in New York and
Huston  society.
The church, which lends itself to a
beautiful floral decoration, was profusely adorned with bride roses, lilltes and
white lilacs, with masses of delicate
ferns and the choicest tropical greens
banked about the pulpit platform. The
music was another attractive feature
ot the ceremony. This included a full
choral service by the choir of the church
and organ selections by Nathan Franko.
The maid of honor was the bride's
sister. Miss Mary Harriman. The bridesmaids were the Misses Carol Ilarriman,
another sister of the bride: Elsie How-
land, Anita Peabody and Margaret DIz.
The bridesmaids wore attractive costumes of pink and white chiffon and
each carried La Tosca clusters of pink
and white roses. ,
The bride, who was escorted by her
father, wore a superbly built gown ot
rich cream satin, with bodice and
sleeves heavily embroidered in silk and
finished in a fall of point lace.
The bridegroom had as his best man
bis brother, Mr. Peter Goelet Gerry. The
Rev. Dr. William R. Huntington, rector
of Grace church, officiated and was assisted by the Rev. Dr. J. H. McGuin-
ness, of Arden, N. Y. Bishop Doane of
Albany pronounced the benediction. The
ceremony at the church was followed
by a reception and breakfaat at the
Ilarriman  home in  Fifth avenue.
The bride of today is the second
daughter of the noted railroad magnate
and is a direct descendant of John
Nellson, who fought under Washington
and was a member of the Continental
Congress. Mr. Gerry, the bridegroom,
is likewise of Revolutionary stock, being a great grandson of Elbrldge Gerry,
of Massachusetts, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a member
of both the Continental Congress and
the  Constitutional  Convention.

OHIO SOLID FOR TAFT
J.  R.  Garfield,   Secretary   .of  .Interior,
Opens Campaign for Choice of
Preaident  Rooaevelt.
Columbus, O.. March S.���The itfMo
Republican convention met ln this city
this afternoon for temporary organization, when Secretary of the Interior
Jamen It. Garfield, as temporary chairman, delivered the keynote speech. Secretary Oarlleld's speech, warmly eulogizing the federal and slate administrations and discussing a number of the
leading issues of the day, was in effect
the Ohio nomination of Taft for President. The opening proceedings, ln fact,
amounted to a rousing Taft celebration,
every mention of the name of the secretary of war being greeted with enthusiastic applause.
The opening addresses, the roll call
and the appointment of the necessary
committees occupied the Initial session.
The real work of the convention will
come tomorrow. In addition to naming
the delegates-at-Iarge to the Chicago
convention candidates will be nominated for all the Important state officers
fro mgovernor down. The ticket to be
nominated will be the longest that has
gone before the voters of Ohio In ten
years.
In complete control of the state organization the managers of the Taft
campaign confidently expect to dictate
every Important action of the convention. Foraker will have little or no
voice in the convention proceedings and
Senator Dick, who has managed the
Ohio campaigns for twelve years is slated for removal from the state chairmanship.
The endorsement of Secretary Taft
us the presidential choice will go
through ln a blaze of enthusiasm. The
probabilities now seem to be that the
Ohio "big four" to the national convention will be made up of Governor
A. L. Harris, ex-Governor Myron T.
Herrick of Cleveland, Charles P. Taft,
of Cincinnati, and A. I. Vorys, the active manager of the Taft campaign.
The only contests of the convention
will come over the nomination of candidates for several of the minor places
on the State ticket. Governor Harris
will be renominated by acclamation as
will Carml A. Thompson for secretary
of State and Renick C. Dunlap for state
dairy and food commissioner. The nominations for lieutenant-governor, attorney general, state auditor, state treasurer, school commissioner and member
of the board of public works will probably be closely contested.

STONEY   CREEK   BATTLEFIELD.
Deacendanta   of   Canadian   Victors  Ask
for ita Preservation.
Toronto, March 3.���Descendants of
the patriots who repelled the Invador
at Stony Creek were among the members of a delegation which waited on
Hon. Messrs. Matheson, Hanna and
Pyne to ask the government to make
a grant of $.1000 toward the erection of
a monument on the scene of the battle.
The delegation consisted of representatives of the County of Wentworth Veterans' Association, the Wentworth Historical Association, and the Army and
Navy Veterans' Association, of Hamilton, and was introduced by Hon. J. S.
Hendrle and Mr. Reed, M. P. P. (Wentworth). The Wentworth Veterans' Association has purchased the land In
which the bodies of those who fought in
the battle are Interred, and now wishes
to erect a suitable monument of the
nature of a reliquary on It,
The provincial treasurer noted that
grants had already been made to the
Wentworth Ladles' Historical Societies,
who were promised aid by the Dominion government. He asked if the various societies could not co-operate in
preserving the battlefield as a national
memorial. The delegation was somewhat doubtful, and Mr. Matheson said
the request would have to he considered.

THE   COUNTER-ATTACK.
Yesterday we had occasion to expose
for the amusement of our readers a specimen of the lowest type of Liberal
journalism, the kind that replies to
proof of stealing by a simple blunt denial. We thought that method of polemic was Confined to the lowest ranks
even   of   Liberal   journals.
Wo are sincerely sorry to And our
esteemed local contemporary deliberately placing itself on the same level
as the New Westminster News, from
which  we quoted  yesterday.
Our contemporary prophesies another
victory for Sir Wilfrid Laurler, We
have no quarrel with that. Prophecy
Is tlie privilege of all. IJut he continues:
"Recent happenings In the political
world do not, so far as we can see, even
justify the anticipation of a reduction
in the Laurler majority. The campaign
of slander that has been waged Incessantly by the Tory opposition for
months past has not resulted In any
advantage to the slanderbund, as the
little coterie of Tory mudslingers have
been happily designated, in fact, the
results have been anything but satisfactory to the Tories, their fishing expeditions usually resulting In the unearthing of some new evidence of Tory
corruption or Ineptitude during their
term of Office. This was notably the
case in the timber lands discussion, the
latest of the alleged "scandals" to receive  attention."
"Campaign of Blander" is not a new
expression. It was used by Sir Charles
Tupper to describe the deliberate falsehoods published about him during the
campaign of I8U6. The word "slander-
bund," which commends Itself to our
contemporary's taste as a "happy designation"   was   coined   during   W.   11
Hearst's municipal campaign in New
York City. The companion word which
will no doubt strike our contemporary
as  equally  happy  was  "plunderbund."
When our contemporary states that
the recent revelations, including those
of the granting of immense tracts of
valuable timber lands to companies
that exist only as aliases of Liberal
ministers, senators, members and their
friends, have disclosed oniy "Tory ineptitude and wrong doing," it is wilfully uttering a plain falsehood. We
avoid saying deliberately because deliberation Implies Intelligence, and there
is no symptom of Intelligence ln such
transparent mendacity.
Within the space of two years the
Liberal cabinet has undergone material changes ln its personnel. The most
important was the replacing of Mr. Sifton by Mr. Oliver in tne department of
tlie interior. Mr. Sifton entered parliament in lb'ltu' penniless and lu debt. Today he is one of the wealthiest men in
Canada. If investigation of the interior
department during his administration
were permitted by Sir Wilfrid Laurler
and the Machine the secret of Mr. Slf-
ton's fortune might be revealed. Mr.
Oliver has limply continued the methods of Mr. Sifton without u tithe of
the   [attar's  ability.
Even with the public accounts committee muzzled us closely us the ministers dare, 11 has been shown that ihe
Umber resources of the wesl have been
divided among the spoilsmen, and our
contemporary, with cheerfulness recklessness, declares that the revelations
are all of "Tory ineptitude and wrong
doing."
We are not concerned now to defend
details of administration of twelve years
ago and earlier. IJut, if it could be
proved thut us many thieves were maintained In the Conservative service prior
to 181)6 as now grace the court of Sir
Wilfrid Laurler, to offer that as a defence for the crimes now being perpetrated would be mere impudence. For
tills feature our contemporary is hardly
to blame. It Is the only reply available
and the example has been set by Mr.
Aylesworth and Mr. Fielding.
EDITORIAL  COMMENT.
In the death of lion. A. C. Klllam,
chairman of the Dominion railway commission, the country has suffered a dls
tlnct loss. Ills knowledge of law and
hlB  rare ability  to apply the spirit of
law and equity In conditions not contemplated by legislators made his presence on the commission its chief source
of strength, which his perfect integrity
and freedom from prejudice won the
confidence of every interest with which
he  hud  to deal.
GERRY-HARRIMAN.
Southern    Pacific    Magnate's    Daughter
Married  to  Bostonian.
New York, March X���One of the most
brilliant weddings of the winter took
place In Grace church at noon today,
when Miss Cornelia Ilarriman, daughter
of Mr. und Mrs. Edward 11. Ilaniamn,
was married to Robert Livingston Gerry
of lloston, in the presence of a distinguished company, which Included many
persons prominent in New York and
lloston society.
The church, which lends itself to a
beautiful floral decoration, was profusely adorned with bride roses, lillies and
white lilacs, with masses of delicate
ferns and the choicest tropical greens
banked about the pulpit platform. The
music was another attractive feature
ot the ceremony. This included a full
choral service by the choir of the church
and organ selections by Nathan Franko.
The maid of honor was the bride's
sister, .Miss Mary Harrlman. The bridesmaids were the Misses Carol Harrlman,
another sister of he bride; Elsie How-
land, Anita Peabody and Margaret Dlx.
The bridesmaids wore attractive costumes of pink and white chiffon and
each carried La Tosca clusters of pink
aud white roses. ,
The bride, who was escorted by her
father, wore a superbly built gown ot
rich cream satin, with bodice and
sleeves heavily embroidered in silk and
linished in a fall of point lace.
The bridegroom had as his best man
his brother, Mr. Peter Goelet Gerry. The
Rev. Dr. William R. Huntington, rector
of Grace church, officiated and was assisted by the Rev. Dr. J. H. McGuin-
ness, of Arden, N. Y. Bishop Doane of
Albany pronounced the benediction. The
ceremony at the church was followed
by a reception and breakfast at the
Ilarriman home In Fifth avenue.
The bride of today is the second
daughter of the noted railroad magnate
and is a direct descendant of John
Nellson, who fought under Washington
and was a member of the Continental
Congress. Mr. Gerry, the bridegroom,
is likewise of Revolutionary stock, being a great grandson of Elbridge Gerry,
of Massachusetts, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a member
of both the Continental Congress and
the  Constitutional  Convention.

OHIO SOLID FOR TAFT
J.   R.  Garfield,   Secretary   .of  .Interior,
Opena Campaign for Choice of
President  Roosevelt.
Columbus, O., March %.���The Utalo
Republican convention met ln this city
this afternoon for temporary organization, when Secretary of the Interior
James It. Gartleld, as temporary chair*
man, delivered the keynote speech. Secretary Garfield's speech, warmly i-uio-
KiziiiK the federal and slate administrations and discussing a number of the
leading issues of the day, was in effect
the Ohio nomination of Taft for President. The opening proceedings, ln fact,
amounted to a rousing Taft celebration,
every mention of the name of the secretary of war being greeted with enthusiastic applause.
The opening addresses, the roll call
and the appointment of the necessary
committees occupied the Initial session.
Ihe real work of the convention will
come tomorrow. In addition to naming
the delegates-at-large to the Chicago
convention candidates will be nominated for all the important state officers
fro mgovernor down. The ticket to be
nominated will be the longest that has
gone before the voters of Ohio ln ten
years.
In complete control of 'the state organization the managers of the Taft
campaign confidently expect to dictate
every important action of the convention. Foraker will have little or no
voice in the convention proceedings and
Senator Dick, who has managed the
Ohio campaigns for twelve years is slated for removal from the state chairmanship.
The endorsement of Secretary Taft
as the presidential choice will go
through ln a blaze of enthusiasm. The
probabilities now seem to be that the
Ohio "big four" to the Dational convention will be made up of Governor
A. L. Harris, ex-Governor Myron T.
Herrick of Cleveland, Charles P. Taft,
of Cincinnati, and A. I, Vorys, the active  manager of the  Taft  campaign.
The only contests of the convention
will come over the nomination of candidates for several of the minor places
on the State ticket. Governor Harris
will be renominated by acclamation as
will Carml A. Thompson for secretary
of State and Renick C. Dunlap for state
dairy and food commissioner. The nominations for lieutenant-governor, attorney general, state auditor, state treasurer, school commissioner and member
of the board of public works will probably be closely contested.

HENRY E880N YOUNG,
Provincial Secretary.
The delegation consisted of representatives of the County of Wentworth Veterans' Association, the Wentworth Historical Association, and the Army and
Navy Veterans' Association, of Hamilton, and was introduced by Hon. J. S.
Hendrie and Mr. Reed, M. P. P. (Wentworth). The Wentworth Veterans' Association has purchased the land in
which the bodies of those who fought In
the battle are interred, and now wishes
to erect a suitable monument of the
nature of a reliquary on it.
The provincial treasurer noted that
grants had already been made to the
Wentworth Ladies' Historical Societies,
who were promised aid by the Dominion government. He asked if the various societies could not co-operate in
preserving the battlefield as a national
memorial. The delegation was somewhat doubtful, and Mr. Matheson said
the request would have to be considered.
