Mr. J. J. HUGHES.

I rise, Mr. Speaker, to a question of privilege. In the Halifax ' Herald' I find a report of an interview between an alleged prominent labour leader of the Railway Employees Organization and myself, which is entirely inaccurate. The interview is given as follows, under large headlines:-
It is a well-known fact that an interview was held recently between J. J. Hughes, L'b-eral member of parliament for Kings, Prince Edward Island, and a prominent labour leader of the railway employees' organization, when the former unhesitatingly expressed himself as utterly opposed to any sort of labour organizations and would not give his support to measures emanating from them if brought up in the House of Commons on their behalf.
