Hon. D. TISDALE.

I think a little inquiry in regard to dates may be of interest here. The general order has no date, but it must have been issued some time before the regimental order.

Mr. TISDALE.

I would like to add a word to what the hon. member for North Toronto (Mr. Foster) has said on two lines. The first and most particular information we want is as to the expenditures past and present. I will try to give a little summary so that the minister may have the information prepared as far as he can obtain it : (1) the number of men kept by the British government in these two garrisons ; (2) the number. of men the department propose to ask the House to confirm and the number they propose to substitute. Iu all possibility it may be much less or much more.
