-the examination, shallow as it was, brought forth this fact,-my hon. friend the Solicitor General will have ample time to answer me; if he will only allow me to finish my sentence I will sit down-the examination, shallow as it was, brought forth this fact, Mr. Speaker, that the Government, of which my hon. friend tire Solicitor General is a member, paid for those submarines, although they had been rejected by the Chilian Government because they were not up to the specification, $332,000 more than the Chilian Government would have paid if they had been up to the specifications.
Mr. MEIGHEN,: Will-the hon. gentleman say, if he complains of the investigation, why after making the charges in the House he was not there to substantiate them?
