Mr. DESROCHERS (Translation):

It was dreadful. His speech reminded me of a passage in my old classic books. A Greek author has said somewhere: "One day, the handsome Alcibiades, in quest of fame, had the tail of his dog cut. It was a great event in Athens". The embargo against Russia gave my hon. friend the opportunity of covering himself with fame and to again embrace the Conservative party. He was once more found among the extremists, where we have always thought he belonged. I think that by the brilliancy of his intellect and the subtlety of his wit my hon. member was really born a poet-''nascuntur poetae-and that he should never have become an orator.

Mr. J. A. VERVILLE (Lotbiniere). (Translation) : Mr. Speaker, I am sorry I was not here for the hon. Solicitor General's (Mr. Dupre) speech yesterday afternoon. He honours me with his personal friendship-

Mr. DORION. Hear, hear.
