Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HARRIS:

Somebody says "louder."
Mr. Speaker, the hon. Minister of Agriculture in his oration last night, in his monthly instalment of amusement given to this House, mentioned something about the crack of doom. Now I have always been taught to believe that when the crack of doom is heard an angel shall descend from heaven, and placing one foot on the sea and one foot on dry land, shall proclaim to the people of the earth that earth shall be no more. Mr. Speaker, when that day cometh, I imagine that the hon. member who said "louder"-I do not know who it was, but I think it was the hon. member for Colchester (Mr. Putnam)-will probably rise in his place and say, "Louder! louder!" ,
