Mr. WARD.

I want to refer to one statements made by the Minister of Justice, that is, with reference to Justice Harvey's report. I did not feel at liberty to mention that report at all, because my hon. friend showed it to me in confidence ; but as he has referred to it and has spoken of Justice Harvey having stated that he believed Blunden to be guilty, I desire to say that what Justice Harvey did state in regard to that was that Blunden's attempt to prove an alibi convinced him of his guilt. Now, he made no attempt whatever to prove an alibi at the trial. He did bring three witnesses to the preliminary examination before the magistrate, but not before Justice Harvey at all. It is quite true that he made the attempt there ; but he states in his evidence that he got liis brother to write to the clergyman who had performed the christening upon which they based the alibi that he was at home on the day the christening was held. And he got his brother to write to this clergyman to find out if that christening did actually take place on the 4th. When he found from the clergyman's letter that it took place on the 11th, the day he

was said to be at Blunden's bouse, he withdrew the alibi at the trial and there was nothing before the justice at all. How the attempt to prove an alibi, under the circumstances, was evidence of his guilt is beyond me to understand.
