Mr. COTNAM:

I think hon. gentlemen opposite should be able to give some reason for their speechlessness. I notice that one of the first hon. gentlemen opposite to suffer from that malady was the acting leader of the government (Mr. Lapointe), who, when he was supposed to rise and give us reasons why the government was asking for an adjournment, sat speechless in his seat for a day and a half; in fact, he was never able to rise properly and give us reasons for the adjournment until the hon. member for Brandon (Mr. Forke) had come to his assistance and explained why he thought an adjournment was necessary at this particular time. Is it not further an admission of weakness, incompetency and inability to carry on the affairs of this country, not only that this government should ask for an adjournment when members have come here prepared to carry on public business, but that the government have not been able to submit any business to the House? Yet over and over again the attempt has been made to make it appear that we are obstructing business, obstructing the government from carrying on. Is it not a confession of weakness on their part that they are not able to carry on? Is it not further an admission of weakness that although every seat in this House except the Prime Minister's was filled when this parliament met some six weeks ago, the government now finds it necessary to go outside its own ranks to find men it deems to be of cabinet timber? Is it not an admission of weakness that they to-day are trying to find a seat for the Hon. C. A. Dunning in the city of Regina?

Mr. COTNAM:

I would lower it sufficiently that our market would not be flooded with those goods. I do not believe in a onesided preference. We want an all-round Canadian trade arrangement.
