Mr. BRADBURY:

These men are really the pioneers in this line; they have done excellent work; they have spent a large

amount of their own money with ia view to promoting the interests of the Empire. There is not likely to he any clash between this organization and any other similar body. They do not intend to do the work which is the object of the organization formed in Ottawa-that of looking after the rights and interests of returned soldiers. They are, however, forming clubs and libraries all over Canada for war veterans; that is the purpose of the Bill.

To increase the public influence of veterans by organization, by parades and by giving as an entity expressions of opinion upon public questions affecting the rights of veterans or concerning the welfare of the whole or any part of the Empire;

To stimulate the spirit of patriotism in Canada and to promote, on sound and enduring principles of equality of rights, a Greater Britain, by a closer unity and coordination of the Overseas Dominions with the Mother Country;
