Mr. LEFURGEY.

Will you ask your de puty minister ?

Mr, PREFONTAINE. He does not know from memory. There may have been a suggestion to moor her in a different way, but I am not a mariner. There may be the fact that some of the sailors did not know how to maintain her anchor, and that is a very stormy place, and we have to learn by experience.

What had the sailors to do with the anchor when she was moored ? Who advises the department on such a matter ?

There is no particular adviser. If an accident happens you cannot help it.

I am not blaming the minister, but I want to know who is responsible. Who recommended the mooring of this vessel ?

It must have been the nautical adviser, Captain Spain, or Oapt. Salmon.

After the vessel broke loose, was there any objection to the method of mooring her again ?

Mr. PREFONTAINE.

I suppose some improvements were made; we would be stupid not to learn by experience.
