Mr. TAYLOR (Nanaimo):

The hon. member said:

If I should drop my amendment and trust to the vague, distant, fortuitous possibility- for that is all it is-that a private bill, or a public bill introduced by a private member to be strictly accurate, may be reached, I may find myself in the position that my bill may never come up.

Again he said:

I introduced it only in order to do what a good general does, prepare a position to which he may retire if he is driven from his present one. Since I have looked into the merits of the proposed amendment and its relation to the bill now before the committee, I have becom* fully satisfied from the best authorities that my amendment is in order and I should like to be allowed to go ahead with it.

Identifying the amendment with the bill already on the order paper, I submit, Mr. Speaker, that it is out of order.

Mr. TAYLOR (Nanaimo):

Is anything being done to protect the Victoria fortified area from the rear? I refer to the Barkley sound and Alberni canal portion of Vancouver island, which, in the minds of many,

constitutes a weakness in the defence of that particular area. Further, is anything being done to fortify the scarp, the southerly ridge of Vancouver island from Port Renfrew, shall we say, on towards Victoria? I have an idea, although I have no expert knowledge, that the fortifications at Victoria would not protect the strait of San Juan. Can the minister say anything about that?
