Mr. BUREAU:

I am glad the hon. gentleman from Frontenac (Mr. Edwards) stated that he did not belong to the legal profession, because, if he had said that he did, I would be inclined to think he was talking about something he knew nothing about. It does not follow that, because a judge sends a boy to penitentiary, he is acting unjustly. He may have been right in sending the boy there. I do not know about that. When the hon. gentleman says that judges have nothing to do but draw their breath and their salaries, he had better inquire into the work that they have to do. '
