There is one peculiar thing about it. The hon. member for Beauharnois (Mr. Loy) could inform the First Minister, but he could not inform my hon. friend from Jacques Cartier, that he intended to bring this matter before the House. My hon. friend made certain allegations in a speech which he made before this House, but he is in a measure stopped from substantiating them for want of the very papers which the government ought to produce.
