Mr. PUTTEE.

Let me explain bow that is and_what is the complaint of the men in Toronto and Winnipeg and the other cities against Preston. It is this, that he is repeating statements made by these other agencies in Great Britain and therefore, putting the government stamp on those statements.

Mr. PUTTEE.

I do not want to let that statement go uncontradicted. I have the contradiction of it here. It is from the secretary of the Amalgamated Society of Engineers. He says :

To the best of our belief to the time qf writing this, letter, not one single alien has been disturbed. H. A. Kyle who wrote the letter disparaging Canadians, A. G. Allen who spoke of the King as a blackguard and all the others are still here, receiving high salaries, although the evidence proved they were grossly incompetent and capable and qualified British subjects are out of employment and their families in want.

They state that not one man has gone out, but they are all in the same positions in the Grand Trunk Railway just as before Judge Winchester investigated.

Mr.- FOWLER. Under the existing law these men can be deported. That is the understanding we are given. One of these engineers has been arrested by erder of the Department of Justice, according to the reports in the papers. If we have a law at present under which these aliens can be deported, why is it necessary to pass thi-s particular section ?
