Mr. MEIGHEN:

Suppose there are,two men -side by -side; one man pays off his indebtedness because he owes it, and is able to; the other man is -also able to pay, we will suppose, but does not do so, because he is getting the money at five per cent. My hon. friend would say that in the case of this -second man, if his- widbw paid while her husband was at the front, the money should be refunded to her, but that in the case of the other one who is honest enough to pay before going to the front, the money should not be refunded?
