Mr. LAKE.

Allow me to read the letter which he -wrote, which will show that he acted as if the appointments came from him and from him only. This circular letter, which I am about to read, is headed:

Liberal Executive Organization Committee, Winnipeg, April 17, 1911.

Dear Sir,-Re census in federal constituency of McDonald. I beg to advise, yon that you have been recommended as enumerator for the following official census enumeration division of the above constituency:-

Then follows a typewritten slip with these words:-

61. That part of the parish of St. Charles, north of the Assinihoine river.

Mr. Perry goes on to say:

I inclose copy of rates as officially announced in the ' Canada Gazette ' of April 15, 1911, and would he pleased if within ten days you would please acknowledge reception of this letter.

Yours in the good cause,
