Mr. Speaker, I am sure that we have all enjoyed the eloquent remarks of the hon. leader of the opposition (Mr. Foster) upon this very important question, especially that part of his remarks in reference to the promotion of judges from inferior courts to superior courts. It requires a great stretch of imagination for us to believb that in the year 1S93 the hon. gentleman who now leads the opposition was one of the cabinet ministers from the Mr. FOSTER.
