Mr. CALDWELL:

No, they simply granted the municipalities the right to issue bonds and go into it on their own account-a power which I think they had in any case. As I say, it was simply a matter of passing the buck.

Mr. CALDWELL:

I am surprised that

as bright a man as the hon. member for East Calgary would present such an argument. He says he would have to get four or five volumes to find out what he wants. My hon. friend has not caught the point. With the present system of index you have to send for the index before you know what volume you want at all. Under the old system the index was inserted in each volume, so that you could find out by looking in the first volume where the item you wished to refer to appeared, just as easily as if you had the index. A man who had all his faculties would not have to send for the second volume. He would find it in the first volume.
