What was done in British Columbia was really a concession to the United States, but the effect of it has been to help Prince Kupert very materially.

Mr. HAZEN:

I would be prepared to give such information as it is desirable should be given. I am doubtful as to the advisability of making public many of these facts. I should not have the slightest objection, if my hon. friend would come to my department, to giving him privately full information with regard to all the boats we have charted for patrol in connection with the

Naval Service, the amounts we are paying, and all details of that sort.

Mr. McKENZIE:

I intend to bring some facts to the notice of the minister, rather in the way of criticism. There are many of these boats, and some of them may be of service. I am as careful as any member could be that no information should be given in this House that can be made of advantage to the enemy; but, many of these boats are of no good to the enemy or anybody else,-like a chip in porridge, they are neither good nor harm, except that they draw money from the public treasury, and draw it because they are owned by partisans and wire-pullers-

I can give him the

name of one man, Mr. William Scott of North Sydney, who had two or three boats in the service, but when it was discovered that he was not an orthodox Tory he and his boats were thrown on the shore.

That is news to me and I think that investigation would show that it is not correct. However, this is a matter to be discussed when the Naval Estimates come up.
