It would not have hurt my hon. friend to ndd a postscript that he intended to bring up this matter this afternoon. The hon. gentleman must be afaid, however, as he admits, or his conscience must have troubled him- something must have been the matter when lie was not willing to give me the British fair play that I offered him yesterday ? I Ho not think there is anything to reply to in what the hon. gentleman has said. The statement I made is unanswerable. I am willing to let the record stand. If anything can be established which shows that my statement was in any way wrong, I am willing to apologize. But I am quite satisfied that I shall never be called upon to .apologize because my statements are absolutely correct. As to entering into personalities, I can tell the hon, gentleman that there is not in my statement a single word of a personal character-not one.
