Hon. JAS. SUTHERLAND (Minister of Public Works).

I did not intend to take part in this debate, but I think every member in this House must have a feeling in his breast, that he should be fair and honest to his fellow being. It is only fair to say that Mr. Bain is in no way responsible, and has not had anything to do with the items which the hon. gentleman (Mr. Taylor) has been reading. It is a very unfair, and a very improper charge to make against Mr. Bain.
