Mr. BUREAU:

Before the Orders of the Day are called, I would like to direct the attention of the Minister of Militia to the following statement which is reported in the Citizen this morning as having been made by him:

He laughed to scorn the idea that the rebels of 1837 were patriots and were fighting for a gust cause, and vividly portrayed the march of L.O.L. to fight against them. They waited not for the call to arms, but rose as a man to crush the rebels who were nothing but cranks and crooks who were driven out of their own country and tried to take Canada for the United States.

I desire also to call the attention of the hon. Minister of Militia to the fact that Sir George Etienne Cartier

Mr. SPEAKER:

The hon. member is

proceeding in a very irregular way. It is not proper to bring in papers and to read articles from them upon which to found questions .or to initiate a debate. According to both Brand anl Peel, the rule is distinctly that a member ought to be responsible for the correctness of an article before he brings it up in the House. In this Parliament that rule has been more honoured in the breach that in the observance. I think it would be well to follow the proper practice as closely as possible.

I desire to ask the Minister of Militia if this report is true, and, before he can pronounce on the truthfulness or untruthfulness of it, he must know what it is. I desire to ask him if he uttered these words which are reported in the Citizen as having been pronounced by him last night at Hintonburgh Orange Hall dedication.
