For copies of all correspondence, documents and reports, between the government and any party or parties, relative to the question of weighing dairy products at the port of Montreal, or elsewhere in the Dominion of Canada ; as well as all documents, papers and letters connected with the commission appointed to investigate the same.

He said : I beg to acknowledge the courtesy of the hon. Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Fisher) in sending me a copy of a report of the commission reported to investigate this matter. I trust that he will facilitate these other documents as it is my intention to introduce a motioA in this House in connection with the indifferent manner in which this subject as has been treated by the government.

Mr. POPE.

I may say that the author of this pamphlet which the hon. Minister of Justice quoted, and the name of the author of which he had some difficulty in finding out, is Mr. Chrysler of this city, a man we often meet as a lawyer. There should uot have been great difficulty in ascertaining who the author of this valuable document is.

Did they decide that it was fit for making rope ? Has that ever been developed ? The hon. minister should give us further evidence. Of course lie has given us this much evidence that the High Commissioner has recommended to our consideration the expenditure of this money. I am inclined to give fair consideration to the recommendation of the High Commissioner, but the High Commissioner uever seems to have opposed our having been associated with this Imperial Institute when it was in a wrecked condition. Consequently, perhaps, the High Commissioner has not studied that question as closely as he ought to have done. I think it is due to this committee from the fact that we have been associated with what is recognized by the hon. minister and members of this House a.-, a defunct institution practically, and when we are going to join a new organization which promises us better things to be furnished with evidence, first, that these people are friendly to us, and secondly, that they are not harnessed up with the red tape that goes along with government in that country. My experience is that in everything associated with government in that country you have officers and red tape and a lot of nonsense that disgusts everybody
