William Thoburn

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. THOBURN:

It might have been
night dresses. That is acknowledged by the respondent. Take the other occasion when they went to this house, the insurance building. What do they go to the insurance building in the middle of the night, in the middle of the month of I bruary for? An umbrella! In that building, behind locked doors according to the evidence- will you tell me what a man and a woman were doing in that building in the middle of the night, behind locked doors, looking for an umbrella? Consult the meteorological records for that month and you will find that on the very night they were there for the umbrella it was several degrees below zero. It is not necessary for me to go any further. Everything I have said is borne out by the evidence as printed, and if time would permit I would quote evidence to supp 'rt every statement I have made.
Motion agreed to and House went into committee on the Bill, Mr. Rainville in the Chair.

Topic:   GORDON DIVORCE BILL NOT REPORTED FROM COMMITTEE.
