Mr. BALLANTYNE:

If my hon. friend will allow me, I am not asking for $2,500,000 to purchase ships. I am asking for that amount to carry on the naval service of Canada, to maintain our docks at Halifax and Esquimalt, to maintain the naval college, and for the upkeep of our ships. It is quite in order to ask questions about the naval force when the vote is before the House, but the Niobe has nothing to do with this vote.

Mr. BALLANTYNE :

The only mistake I made, was calling for tenders three times.

I should only have called for tenders once.

I should have accepted the price of $75,000 and we never would have heard a word about it. The mistake I made, in my earnestness, was trying to get too much

.

money for these ships. If I call for tenders again, after the experience I am having here to-night, I will award the contract to the highest bidder; I will try no more dickering.
