In 1901 the population was 8,776. Owen Sound, I believe, is one of the best harbours if not the best natural harbour upon the Georgian bay. *

He would be in favour of it.

Mr. FOWLER, Perhaps it may be the same with him as with the hon. member for Hamilton (Mr. Zimmerman) whose speech appeared in the Hamilton ' Herald ' or ' Times ' although that hon. gentleman was not here to deliver it.

I am not saying that the hon. gentleman was responsible, but it shows a strong imagination on the part of the reporter of the ' Times.'
