I must support the amendment. Coming from a race which has perpetuated its aboriginal costumes for many years it would ill become me to help deprive the Indians of their costumes. Hundreds of years ago a measure of this kind was passed having reference to Scotchmen, and they have not recovered from that insult to this day. I think if the Indians want to parade in their costumes they should have the right to do so.
Amendment negatived on division.
