Mr. LALOR.

What inducements are held out to manufacturers to exhibit ? Have they to pay their own freight, or what means should they take to have their goods exhibited ?

Mr. LABOR.

How does the minister interpret the term ' adulteration of food ? ' The hon. member for East Lambton (Mr. Armstrong) has raised this point as to jam. Suppose an article is put on the market called raspberry jam. If it is in part raspberry jam but with apples used as a filler, would that be considered adulterated ?

Mr. LABOR.

I would like to ask the minister how he manages in connection with imported jams, catsups, &c., from the United States ? How do you treat them in regard to adulteration ? I may say that the gentlemen who are talking about turnips in jams are not very well posted in the jam business. I think that when the minister tells us that apple pulp is more generally used, he is nearer the truth than the gentlemen who talk of turnips.

Mr. LALOR.

As a representative of a rural constituency, I was much pleased to hear the remarks of the hon. Minister of Militia, I am glad to hear that he has outlined a policy by which he proposes to take care of the rural battalions. In the votes we have been giving to the militia for the building of armouries, it did strike me that all the money was going to the large towns and cities and that the rural battalions were being completely neglected. The county of Haldimand has one of the best battalions in the province. 1 am told that the 37tli battalion is probably the best of those that go to the Niagara camp. Yet, in the whole county there is not one drill shed for that battalion. I hope that the hon. minister will see his way clear to furnish us with some drill halls in that county. The town of Dunnville, where I reside, is a large, prosperous and growing town, and it has a splendid volunteer corps. I have received a number of letters already, since I have been in the House, from Dunnville, asking me to bring this matter before the House so that the hon. minister might know that the company in Dunnville have no place in which to drill or store their arms, but have to rent a place and pay for it out of their own pockets. The officers are very anxious that a drill hall should be built there. I can not refrain from complimenting the hon. minister on the policy he has outlined, and I hope he will not forget that good old county of Haldimand when he is distributing armouries and drill sheds.
