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.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN.

I would direct the attention of the hon. member for North Simeoe (Mr. J. A. Currie) to the volume I have here which will give him full information respecting the 'Niobe.' If he consults that, I think he will be quite satisfied that the government is not buying a piece of junk. For instance, she is put down here as a protected first-class cruiser-this is the latest naval annual, 1909-and the vessel would not be so entered unless she bore that class. That is her present position in the navy, a protected first-class cruiser.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN.

I might call the attention of the hon. member for St. John (Mr. Daniel) to the naval Blue-book for 1909.^ There the 'Niobe' appears in the Diadem' class, in which there are eight vessels, and in one place it states when Mr. DANIEL.

she was built, in another place, when she was launched, and then there is a date, 1899, when she was completed, and 1902, when that class was completed.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN.

The confusion may have arisen in this way, that 1902 was put here as the date when she W'as completed along with the date of 1899 when *she was launched. Apparently, the figures differ in the different books. One book gives the date of launching as 1899, but Brassey's 'Naval Annual' makes it 1897, and completion 1899.

Mr. HUGH H. McLEAN.

They wanted suggestions, and when the matter was discussed, they say: Give us the fast cruisers, the scout type, give us destroyers; place so many on the Pacific and so many on the Atlantic because we .recognize that with your double sea-board that will be better than to have the unit type. I have said, and I say it again, that personally- though I may be extravagant in this matter-I would be in favour of having a full unit on the Atlantic and, when we can af-
