Liberal

Mr. PUGSLEY:

Let me remind my hon. friend that a very able lawyer, one much better able to conduct the case than I would be, appeared before the commission in the city of Victoria, and asked that' in the interests of the people, and in the interests of the Liberal party, of which party I happen to be an humble member, he might be permitted to appear before the commission, to produce witnesses and to examine witnesses, and that right was denied him by the chairman of the commission.' I had it from the gentleman himself, because I happened to meet him in the city of Vancouver, and he told me of the application he had made, and which I had also noticed in the newspapers, and he told me that the chairman of the commission had denied him the right to appear and to examine witnesses.

Topic:   THE GOVERNOR GENERAL'S SPEECH.
Subtopic:   ADDRESS IN REPLY.
