Sir SAM HUGHES:

I should like to call the attention of the Government to the case of a young man named Charles Maedonell, who has been sentenced to five years' imprisonment after Mons. This young man- a son of Oscar Maedonell, who was an officer of the House of Commons-h'ad two brothers overseas with him, one of whom

was killed. He was one day suffering from sore feet and took a rest, and he ran foul of an officer, and the sentence I have mentioned was imposed upon him. I should be glad if the Government would take the matter up. This young man belongs to the Canadian forces and is on the other side of the water.
Hon. iMr. MEWBURN: Is he with the
Imperials?
