Mr. STEIN:

I think the Government should admit that this is a blunder. There is another drill hall in Riviere du Loup, distant from that one about ten acres or arpents. It was built in 1910 or 1911 by the Government, and it is closed as well as the Rioux drill hall. The Government has already one drill hall with a place in which to put ammunition, and the other place is simply a store that was closed owing to the fact that the lessee had abandoned business. When the war broke out, instead of using the drill hall that belonged to them the Government opened up this other place. It was only after the Rioux arsenal had been in use for two years or thereabouts that the Government, having been censured by the newspapers for this blunder, decided to use the other place. There is no use for two drill halls in Riviere du Loup.

Mr. STBIN:

Does not the minister think it would be an economy to do away with jury trial in petty cases of theft for a few dollars? I understand that the accused often chooses trial by jury in order to gain time, and with a chance perhaps of seeing witnesses disappear or die and the evidence vanish, and then when the time comes to undergo trial before jury he chooses a trial before a magistrate. I think to do away with trial by jury in petty cases of this kind would save a great deal of money to the province and even to the Dominion.
