Mr. KENDREY.

Within the last six or seven weeks there was a fire in Toronto, and one of the establishments was burned down. They consequently sent me _ these goods to finish and dye, and that is the reason why I know all about it. I do not wish to hurt the people in that business or take this as a personal matter, but as the bon. gentleman has put the question I tell him that I know exactly where the goods come from.

Mr. WRIGHT.

Then do I understand the hon. gentleman to say that, these goods he referred to were partially made in the old country and were finished here in Canada ?

They were not imported from Germany to England and finished there, and then brought over here as English goods ?

Mr. KENDREY.

Well, now, Mr. Speaker, there are some questions that I might answer, but I do not think it would be hardly fair to these people to do so. I said to the Minister of Customs that I would give him such information of that kind as I deemed it right to give. I do not wish to stand up here and be cross-questioned by the hon. gentleman, but I would be willing to give to the Minister Customs that information.

The MINISTER OF CUSTOMS (Hon. Wm. Paterson) moved the adjournment of the debate.
