We therefore see that Mr. McCreary had a very good idea of the contents of this document which has been at last submitted to this House. Further than that, if we can judge from his remarks, he seems to have had an inkling that some member of tbe government would during tbe closing hours of the debate, when it was impossible to discuss it, spring this document upon the House. It seems to me that some further light is required as to the extraordinary amount of information possessed by Mr. Charlton and by the late Mr. McCreary as to the contents of this confidential document. By what means did these hon. gentlemen obtain that information; they were private members of the House, and were entitled to no more information on this subject than any other hon. gentleman ; by what means were these hon. gentlemen able to use in debate, information which never was laid before this House until it was read recently by the Minister of Finance.
