Mr. GRAHAM:

I am afraid my hon.

friend is breaking his promise to me that I would get a hearing. As a matter of fact, the managers of the conference representing the House of Commons urged upon the managers representing the upper house the advisability of raising the amount, of making $1,000 the minimum to be paid in full instead of $500. They urged upon that conference the wisdom of including churches, societies and unions in the class that was to be paid in full; but they were told very frankly by the managers from the Senate with no suggestion of ill temper, that those terms and amounts of payment could not be changed, or the Senate would not carry the bill. Therefore, the managers from the House of Commons were up against this proposition-it was that or nothing as regards the depositors. What were the managers to do? If the ex-Minister of Finance had been there and he had acted as he talked to-night, the ill-fated depositors of the Home Bank would not have got a farthing.
