Mr. FORKE:

As a matter of privilege, I rise to ask if this is to be the last word on the subject. Have I no right to reply to the statements made by the hon. gentleman?

Mr. FORKE -when I know they are a mis-statement of the facts? I cannot see where I am wrong. My character to a certain extent is at stake in regard to the statements that have been made. My friends in the other corner of the house know exactly what took place and I put it to them -to any member over there, to get on his

Thomas Langton Church

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. T. L. CHURCH (Toronto Northwest):

I rise to a question of privilege. I wish to call the attention of the house to an editorial in the Orange Sentinel of March 1st on the Mexican question, stating that I was ill-advised to press a vote. I do not know whether anyone ever reads that paper or not-I do not very much-but this editorial, which I am not allowed to read, refers to my motion regarding the Mexico question. Might I say in reply that I had one motion on the order paper, and had I put my other motion on the order paper it would have gone to the bottom of the list, with thirty-seven others ahead of it, and would not have come up again this session.
