Mr. DAVIS:

Reverting to the point I raised a few moments ago, paragraph (e) provides that No. 1 Timothy Clover Mixed shall be timothy and clover mixed with at least one-half timothy and the remainder good clover, of good colour and sound. Now that might toe 99 per cent timothy. With any admixture of timothy it will pass as No. 1 Clover Mixed. Furthermore, a mixture of timothy and clover could be classified'under No-. 1, No. 2 or No. 3 Timothy, or No. 1 Clover Mixed. It seems to me that where the word "timothy" occurs the sec-

end time in .paragraph (f) the -word clover was meant.

Mr. DAVIS:

Should not paragraph (f) of this section provide that No. 1 clover mixed shall be at least one-half clover? If you provide that No. 1 clover mixed shall be at least one-half timothy, the grade might come under the class described in paragraph (c)-timothy with not more than one-third of clover.

Mr. DAVIS:

May I make reference to one part of the section that has not yet been referred to? This discussion, so far, has been based upon the question of leasing, but if I apprehend the rest of this section, it goes to this extent that the commissioner may speculate with the funds of the band to the extent of making improvements. If there are proceeds from such improvements, the hand is ahead of the game, but if he has had the success that I have had as a lawyer in speculating in farming, makes a botch of it and loses money, the band would be out that much. I think this part of the section might more seriously concern the House than what we have been discussing as to leases. I am not much concerned about leases because they will bring in something, but when it comes to making improvements at the expense of the band it is something that must be considered be-

cause the band deserves the protection of this House.

Mr. F. L. DAVIS (resuming):

alien " is a concept which has not a truth in it. These men have expatriated themselves for the purpose of bedoming Canadian citizens; many of them have changed their names to Anglicized forms in order that they might he able to enlist. If we treat such men as men and brothers, it will make Canadians of them; if we treat them in any other fashion, we will make o! them an alien element in Canada-and that, above all things, God forbid.

Mr. DAVIS:

Would the insertion of the word " heretofore " or " hitherto " after the word " persons " in the first line make it clear?
