Mr. SHEARD:

Well, all right, you will hear what I have to say, and much comfort may it bring to you. Here is an estimate providing for an increase of $500 to an official. I want to be assured1 by the hon. minister that that $500 is strictly in accordance with the regulations of the Civil Service Commission, and I do not propose to vote that money until the minister can give us that assurance. We have worked out all the details of the arrangement of the Civil Service, we have scheduled the salaries, and we want to know as to any additions to salaries, if they are in accordance with those schedules and with the provision of the law.

Mr. SHEARD:

However that may be as [DOT]you like. The Minister of Justice, I think, has declared what his policy is; he has declared for the Laurier-Fielding tariff. That was a protective tariff and that is the tariff which we in this corner of the House are going to support. While we are with you on the railway policy, on the question of public ownership, and will assist you sill we can, we are going to stand for adequate protection, which we will maintain, no matter how you may differ from us in opinion, is necessary and essential to protect industries in the large centres of this Dominion, and we hope we will convert you to our way of thinking.

A good deal has been said about differences of policy. I was somewhat surprised to read a new definition of Liberalism which was made by the Prime Minister in an address given in this city on or about the 13th of March last to the Liberal women of Ottawa. He defined Liberalism as an attitude of mind and heart; and I was wondering if it was possible to transform or change Liberalism as it used to be into this new doctrine, and whether that was henceforth to be its condition.

The Address

Some remarks were also made by the Prime Minister as to our being Tories. The leader of the House said that he never attempted to stretch Liberalism so as to embrace Toryism. Well I beg to remind hon. members that there are worse things than Toryism.

Some hon. MEMBERS What are they?
