An Ordinance further to extend the time granted to the Harewood Colliery Company, Limited, by "The Harewood Railways Company's Act, 1864" for making and completing a Tramway from the Company's Mines to Departure Bay, Nanaimo.
2. I likewise enclose the Legal Report of the Attorney General.
3. I quite agree with that Officer that no further extension of the rights of theCompanyManuscript image Company should be granted beyond the time fixed by this Ordinance; but as the principal proprietor in the Company, Lord Harewood's brother, Captain Lascelles R.N. has returned to the Colony without naval employment, I trust that his object is to take up the work contemplated with vigour.
I have the honor to be,
My Lord,
Your Lordship's most obedient
humble Servant
