Mr. MULOCK.

Is that calculated as free labour, or as convict labour? [DOT]

[ Sir JOHN THOMPSON. As convict labour, 50 cents per day, because their hours are shorter and work lighter than free labour. The product is sold at a price coveiing tlie cost of the material, also interest on the expenditure for plant, allowance for deterioration, and everything that enters into the calculation of a private manufacturer.

Mr. MULOCK.

A question here arises with respect to goods manufactured by convict labour, and the prices at which they are put upon the market. The government are calculating the price at convict rates, and are placing convict labour in competition with free labour. There is a large question involved; and I do not wish to enter into it now, but I want to be sure as to what is the practice of the government.

doing so. There was a very general complaint a year or two ago that, owing to the reduction of the postal rate from three cents to two cents, the revenue of postmasters was reduced. I brought the subject up in parliament last session, and, if my memory serves me correctly, the Postmaster General observed that lie thought the revenue would still be practically the same. I am still Informed by postmasters that they suffer on account of the reduction in their revenues. I would re-echo the sentiment expressed by one or two other members here to-night that the Postmaster General might well consider the desirability of reducing the salaries allowed to postmasters in large cities, like Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg, where postmasters receive from $3,000 to $5,000, and possibly more, and allow the rural postmasters some extra allowance or increased rate. I feel strongly on this matter, because I have been memorialized in this matter in many cases, and asked to press it on the attention of the Postmaster General.

Mr. MULOGK.

I assert here as a matter of fact that the postmaster to whom I refer had hundreds of dollars put up on the result in a particular polling division. He made it his business to get these bets. He went around that polling division night and day. The amount of money which he had bet on the result of the election in that polling division would when won have enabled him to have paid $5 to $10 for every vote in that polling division and then be money in pocket. The result was that in that particular polling division which had beeii in the habit of giving me a majority of from 80 to 120, it gave a majority of 10 against me. These are not vague statements. I ] could not make them any more explicit if j I wrote them, and I am prepared to prove them.
