Mr. E. PAQUET.

(L'Islet.) (Translation.) Mr. Chairman, allow me to make a few remarks about our archives. It is with pleasure that I grant the amount of $28,000 here asked for by the Minister of Agriculture to keep up the work of our archives. The literate people stand in with the hon. Minister of Agriculture and encourage him in his patriotic and historical work. We are proud of the record of our country and we must make ourselves familiar with it. What has been done so far stimulates the writers on our history.

By order in council dated April 17, 1907, the Minister of Agriculture has instituted a commission on historical documents. He was most fortunate in his selection of such men as the reverend Abbe Gosselin and Mr. Edmond Roy for the pursuance of such work in our province. It is important that an intelligent classification of our written records should be made in order that they

may be more easily got at by those desirous of studying them. I am pleased to quote among the students in that branch of our archives the reverend Abbe O'Leary, my old professor in history at the Seminary of Quebec. In the last fifty years, Mr. G. B. Faribault, the Abbe Tanguay, the Abbe Verreault and Mr. Joseph Marmette have been in Paris to make researches in the archives there and made very precious discoveries in the way of documents of the highest importance. Those who are working in the French archives under the direction of the Minister of Agriculture are performing a national work.

According to the report of the Minister of Agriculture, students in our history are also getting useful information in the archives in London. The last documents which have been added to the national collection give valuable knowledge on the maritime provinces. Let us keep up these historical searches. Let us be proud of our archives, they are the depository of our national traditions.
