But my hon. friend knows that they did this very thing in 1893 which he now reproaches us with doing. There was a treaty, not a secret arrangement, tout an actual treaty negotiated in secret toy Sir Charles Tupper with the French government, which was brought here and accepted by the whole Conservative party. So I say that it is childish to _ present such an argument at the present time in opposition to this agreement.
