I may point out that among the men who are to. get an increase there is one by the name of Barette. Is he related to the member for Berthier (Mr. Barette) ?

Mr. LAFORTUNE:

From the minister's answer, I see there is granted a more substantial increase to a gentleman by the name of Larue of Quebec, an increase of $300. Is he entitled to get more than the others who get $100 only?

Mr. NANTEL:

Mr. Larue's salary is $1,400 only. He was appointed long ago, he is a very good man, and that increase is only fair.

Because the amount is in proportion to what he earns. I must say I granted that increase despite some of my friends.

Mr. LAFORTUNE:

The hon. member for Dorchester (Mr. Sevigny) stated a moment

ago that, until 1911, Mr. Verville had not asked for any increase of the workingmen's salaries, and the member for Dorchester stated that the Government was going to show its good will by deeds, actual facts. I may state to the hon. gentleman that what the workingmen want is more money, not facts. The hon. member for Maisonneuve made a very good answer, when he said that in 1911 salaries were fair; but that in the meantime have changed to such an extent that what was sufficient then, is now inadequate.
