Sir WILFRID LAURIER.
I have not the slightest wish to reflect on my hon. friend, but errors sometimes do occur in the printing. He may recollect that some days ago the hon. member for Qu'Appelle (Mr. Lake) put a question on the paper containing an extract from a speech delivered by me in Toronto. It happened that the printed extract was not a -correct printing of the hon. gentleman's question, and I thought that possibly a similar error might have taken place in this instance. The chairman of the committee, taken by surprise, does not know that there was a discrepancy, but his attention being drawn to it, he will see that it is rectified
