Mr. WOODSWORTH:

This is one of the cases to which I took exception the other day. I have read the evidence and I cannot see that on the evidence the charges have been proved. I should like to have from the sponsor of the bill a short outline of the case.

Mr. NEILL:

I do not propose to read the evidence in this case. Every member has a copy of it and can read it for himself. The

hon. member who asks me to give a resume of the case, says that he has read the evidence. What more can I give him than what he has already read himself? This is neither the time nor the place to go into all the details. This .case has been carefully considered by the senate committee and unanimously passed. It has also been carefully considered by the House of Commons committee and unanimously passed. I submit that the thing for us to do is to follow the example adhered to in the other two hundred cases we have deait with and pass the bill.
