Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

The only remedy now is to bring a personal action against the captain with the hope that the Government will pay any verdict that might be recovered against him. That 5s one of the difficulties in our law at present, that in Canada a petition of right would not lie in such a case. I understand that vessels chartered and under Government control stand in the .same position as Government-owned vessels. The point I want to make is that, in such a case as I have mentioned, there should be some remedy or means by which such claims could be investigated

and decided, eitner by the Admiralty Court or the Exchequer Court, or by some official acting as an arbitrator.

Mr. McLEAN (Sunbury & Queens):

I think the people of Canada are in favor of maintaining an adequate militia force. Also I hold that we are not expending enough money on our militia. I see by the estimates that we are spending for the drill of militia only $1,730,000. The active militia of Canada are underpaid.

Mr. McLEAN (Sunbury).

My hon. friend from St. John (Mr. Daniel) is under some misapprehension. I was told this evening by Colonel Baxter that he had been asked by the department to select men to go on the contingent, but that not seeing his regiment's name in the general order, he thought that had been cancelled. I asked him why he did not bring the matter to the attention of the department, and he said that he intended to do that today. but was not able to see the proper officer.

No notices have been sent out to the men who have been selected from the different corps, but I understand they will be sent out in a day or two.
