April 23, 1917

Mr. WILCOX:

The firm there is making a farm tractor with a capacity of drawing two or three plows. They have purchased a machine shop and commenced operations

about two months ago. I am quite confident that if my hon. friend will sendN a telegram this afternoon, that company will be able to fill right away all the orders that he can take in the county of Kent.

Mr. WILCOX:

Men from the city have proved to be good fighters and I do not know why they should not be good farmers if they apply themselves.

February 6, 1917

Mr. WILCOX:

It has been reported that my hon. friend from West Lam'bton (Mr. Pardee) made a statement that a soldier who was returning from the front by the name of Private G. Walton, of Windsor, invalided home-

-was without overcoat or gloves, and had his hands frozen at Quebec. He is being cared for in the London hospital, and his case should receive such attention as will make similar cases impossible.

Then the hon. gentleman continues:-

That is one concrete case, and, I have no doubt, there are hundreds of similar cases.

I desire to say to my hon. friend that, in regard to this statement, I have received the following telegram:-

Windsor, Ont., Peb. 6, 1917.

O. J. Wilcox,

House of Commons.

Re Pardee newspaper story, Private G. Walton frozen hands account; no issue coats and mitts absolutely false; was met by Sportsman Patriotic Assistant Secretary. Writing particulars.

M. G. Campbell,

President.

I simply allude to this fact to show how careful hon. gentlemen ought to be in reading these newspaper trashy reports as actual proof of conditions.

Mr. PARDEE; I simply told the House that I was reading from a newspaper. I did not take it upon myself to say whether it was true or not; I was simply pointing it out.

At six o'clock, the Committee took recess.

After Recess.

The committee resumed at eight o'clock. -Mr. Blain in the Chair.

On section 2-payment of $500,000,000 may be made.
