CAPT. D. L. HOOPER,


Paymaster. M. A. ALLAN, Capt., Quartermaster. V. L. GOODWILL, Capt., Adjutant. A. J. B. MELLISH, Capt., No. 1, Co., Ch'town. Last evening Colonel following reply :- Stewart received the Ottawa, June 21, 1904. To Lieut.-Colonel Stewart, Charlottetown. Telegram received. Will see minister soon as can find him. (Sgd.) D. A. MacKINNON. Where was the minister that it was so difficult to find him ? Mr. D. A. MacKinnon, the member for East Queen's, telegraphed to Lieutenant-Colonel Stewart that as soon as he could find the minister he would let him know the facts. This paper, the Charlottetown ' Patriot ' goes on to say : This morning the Charlottetown Board of Trade sent the following telegram :- To Messrs. MacKinnon and Haszard, M.P.'s, Ottawa. Board of Trade strongly urge that business men and all citizens are particularly interested in having camp at Charlottetown.

It will thus be seen that there is really nothing in the objections raised forbidding the holding of the camp in the barrack square. Further, the leading business men of Charlottetown, on both sides of politics, as well as the citizens generally are determined that the camps shall not be removed. We are at a loss to know who has dared to raise so many objections to our militia camps this season. We are convinced that it cannot be a friend of our people and a well wisher to our city. The militia is regarded, and rightly so, as an attraction and a financial benefit to the city and citizens. Charlottetown being the capital of Prince Edward Island, it and it alone is the proper place for military headquarters and annual camp. The grounds as Lord Aylmer said ' are ideal ' and our people will not submit to have the camp removed and the militia to a certain extent disorganized on so flimsy an excuse. Might I ask the Prime Minister what answer he has to give to this ? Our young men in Prince Edward Island-1 speak as an old militiaman myself-turn out each year iii camp to the number of four or five hundred. Our young men also have shed their blood on the yellow veldts of Soutlh Africa in defence of the empire, and I would ask what reason is there now why they should not be allowed to camp on the barrack square as they have been doing for the past seventeen years? Sir, we have had charges made this evening against Lord Dundonald. Well, I think that the hero of the relief of Ladysmith can take care of himself. We have also had charges made against the gallant Colonel (Mr.' Sam. Hughes) who crossed the ocean to fight for h'is country. The man with a small mind and smaller brain, who expects to be made a judge in Nova Scotia, made a personal attack on this hon. gentleman w ho so gallantly fought for his country. Where was the hon. member for Hants (Mr. Russell) wrhen the hon. member for Victoria (Mr. REVISED EDITION



Sam. Hughes) was in South Africa upholding the cause of the empire ? Where was that little man at that time ? He was sitting down quietly by his fireside, drawing his pay as a professor at Dalhousie college and awaiting quietly until the time would come when, like the giant from Guysboro, he would receive a judgeship. It is evident that I cannot get any. information from the government and at this late hour I do not wish to prolong discussion, but I desire to call the attention especially of the Minister of Agriculture to this fact, that a camp has not been allowed to be held this year on the barrack square at Charlottetown as it has been in the last seventeen years.
