Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I explained

that position fully when we were in committee, but I will explain it again. The company agreed, as stated here, to put the men back as soon as possible. The

men tried to get from the company an understanding of what the words "as soon as possible" meant. We spent nearly two days trying to get the Grand Trunk general manager and president to give a definite meaning to those words, and finally he gave to them the meaning of ninety days. It was understood that as soon as he attached to those words a definite period, if that period were acceptable to the men, the strike would be at an end. Ninety days was acceptable to the men. It was not a private understanding, beyond this-that the terms of the agreement were to go to the public as drawn.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

That is absolutely true.

Mr. MiEIGH1EN: Absolutely true on the 10th February, 1911, that the question of pensions was a separate matter wholly from this agreement and that pensions did not enter into the question one way or the other, and still absolutely true to-night that in his opinion the agreement involved the settlement of the question of pensions. That both conclusions, - diametrically opposed, are entirely true, is the position of the leader of the Opposition.
