Mr. ROGERS:

Upon that point I should say that all the evidence was before the commissioner as to the method of negotiation of the contract, and the commissioner found no evidence of fraud or corruption with respect to that. I should think that would answer my hon. friend completely. The commissioner says further at page 49 of the report:
No substantial objection can be taken in my view to the provisions of the Canadian contract, though in the absence of any competitive bids or terms of manufacture, I am unable to pass upon the substance as distinct from the form of the contract.
