Mr. TEMPLEMAN.

The hon. member read evidence to the effect-I do not know who the witness was-that the telegram signed by me had been written by Mr. Kelly in his office, and he has now read evidence to the effect that the telegram was written in the Vancouver club. Of course I never read that evidence, but there seems to be a discrepancy which I cannot understand. I imagine there may have been two telegrams in question.

Mr. TEMPLEMAN.

There is no disputing the telegram. I am responsible for it, whether it was sent by myself or by another person. I signed the telegram. What my hon. friend has may be a copy sent by the telegraph office to the commissioner. I myself have a copy which I got from the Department of Trade and Commerce.

Mr. TEMPLEMAN.

As a matter of fact, I signed the telegram in lead pencil. Afterwards, after it was secured from the telegraph office, I obtained a copy of the telegram from the Trade and Oommeree Department in typewriting, but I signed the original in lead pencil.
