Mr. TISDALE.

You do not seem to have fixed a maximum expenditure here as you promised.

Mr. TISDALE.

I do not remember having read the discussion that took place when the limit was fixed. But I can imagine that it was pointed out that, so1 long as we know that the expense for1 these professors cannot exceed a certain sum unless a statute providing for that excess is passed, it is a guarantee that there will be opportunity for careful discussion before increase is made ; whereas, if it is left unlimited, additions may be made imperceptibly and -without airy opportunity for1 discussion. If the minister would fix a sum beyond which he would not go. I should think that would be sufficient. I was glad to hear him -say that he had no objection to that limitation. Even when, in the1 fullness of time, it becomes necessary to make an' increase, it 'would probably be well to limit that increase add so continue the safeguard that we now have. I think this would be in the interest of the college itself, because it would be an assurance to the public that there is no danger of drifting into undue expenditure. It would he p protection to the minister also, because there are always plenty of people anxious to serve the country at a sufficient salary,

and, if there is no limit the minister will be under constant pressure to increase the expenditure.

Mr. TISDALE.

The bon. gentleman is slightly misinformed as to that, because the matter took such a wide range that the rural battalions began to get uneasy too. They certainly got the impression that they were to be cut down, at all events in regard to the drill.

Mr. TISDALE.

There were statements in the newspapers to the effect that the number of each regiment, except the city regiments, was to be reduced, and the militia force was discussing that very warmly.
