Mr. HUGHES.

I support the item very strongly, but I want to draw the attention of the government to the fact that the men who, while defending their country, were shot down at Frog lake have never had their graves decorated or cared for in any way. 1 brought this matter to the attention of the Minister of the Interior (Mr. Oliver) last year and I would be pleased if the Minister of Customs, who is leading the House to-night, would take it into his serious consideration and have the graves of the late Messrs. Delaney, Gowanlock and Gilchrist looked after. I beg to draw the attention of the hon. Minister of Militia and Defence (Sir Frederick Borden) to it. These graves should be put within a little railing. It would not cost much; it would be a matter of courtesy, and I am sure that the soldiers throughout the country would appreciate it very much.

Mr. JAMESON.

I noticed the other day that when the veterans were before the Prime Minister and the Minister of Militia and Defence it was said by some of them that there had been no recognition of the services of those who had served in defence of their country upon the occasion of this raid other than those who received wounds and were disabled. There was a certain recognition.

Hon! Sir FREDERICK BORDEN (Minister of Militia). There was not only a recognition of those who were wounded, but if my hon. friend had been present at that meeting he would have seen that there was a recognition of the services of every man who turned out in defence of the country at that time, because he would have seen the evidence of it on the left breast of each man in the medal which he wore and which is the very highest recognition that can possibly be given by any country.

Mr. PORTER.

Last year a pension was granted to the widow and children of the late Lt.-Col. Hallowell who was wounded at Batoche and died last year. Is that a pension that would require a vote?
