Mr. SPEAKER.

I presume the House wishes the rules to be observed. I have tried this afternoon to have them enforced. When a statement is made by an hon. member that a certain meaning was attached to his words, his statement must be accepted. The hon. member for Humboldt will have to submit to the rule.

As far as the hon. gentle* man is concerned, I made the statement that if I understand the ordinary meaning' of the English language, and I think I do,' my interpretation of the hon. member's words, and the hon. gentleman's words as recorded in ' Hansard,' is that they impute disloyalty to a large section of the people of this country.

Mr. SPEAKER.

Order. I have stated what the rule of the House is, and I presume the House wants the rule observed'. The moment an hon. member states that he meant or did not mean a certain thing, the interpretation placed upon his own words by himself must be accepted. That is the rule of the House. The moment the hon. member for Frontenac has made that statement, his statement must be accepted.

Mr. NEELY.

I stated I was quite willing to accept the hon. gentleman's interpretation. I am still free to take the position that the hon. gentleman chose the wrong words and the wrong phraseology altogether to express his intention.
