He was not called in. It was his initiative, the whole thing.

Mr. G. H. BARNARD (Victoria, B.C.):

I regret that I was not in the House before 6 o'clock when the hon. member for St. John (Mr. Pugsley) opened the debate upon this question. I have, however, had an opportunity of perusing the " Hansard " notes of what he said with reference to the purchase of the submarines in question. As far as I recollect he made two objections to that purchase: the first as to quality, the second as to price. I should not have intervened in this debate had it not been for the fact that I may possibly give my hon. friend some information in regard to the purchase of these boats which will not be found in the papers-possibly information that he does not want to get. Before doing so I just wish to say to him that I do not think his friends on the Pacific coast will feel grateful to him for the motion he has made to-day and his remarks in support of it. The burden of his complaint is that the submarines are no good; that they were rejected by the Chilian Government because they were obsolete; that one of them-I am speaking from my recollection of the " Hansard " notes-has been in dry dock ever since it was purchased and has been absolutely useless.

I can appreciate the

desire of my hon. friend io make a good case in his summing up, but he should confine himself to the facts.
