I am going to show the house that the language is about the same. Complaint has been made of something in his manner that lacked the cool repose of a Vere de Vere. But at any rate the right hon. gentleman in looking through the records has found that I was frank in statement; there was no circumlocution, there was no uncertainty as to what I meant. It is so difficult for the right hon. gentleman to understand any man acting in that way. I am bound to say that perhaps from his long experience in maintaining a government without a majority, subject to the whims and caprices of those who might induce him to change his mind almost overnight, I can readily understand he would have had the representatives of Canada endeavour, if not in an oleaginous at least in a saponaceous manner or by the exercise of flattery, endeavour to induce other persons to change their attitude. Then at the end of the four and a half hours this is what he is talking about. I can only say that the presentation of the case from the Canadian standpoint before the second plenary conference took exactly seventeen minutes by the clock, and there was at least one Canadian there who, although not a member of the delegation, listened and thought it was as clear and as concise a presentation as it was possible to make.
