Mr. Speaker, I desire to rise to a question of privilege. I notice that the other day I was credited with a remark concerning a comparison between Doukho-bors and some religious order in Ottawa. It is bad enough for me to be responsible for all I really do say, but on that occasion I happened to be some hundreds of miles
or more away when the remarks were uttered and I do not desire to be associated with them.
After committing the murder Private Moir obtained two revolvers and a rifle and a large quantity of ammunition and he disappeared from the barracks and has not been heard of since. The police of London have done their best to discover and apprehend the man, but he has got away into the country and the county constables are somewhat indifferent about attempting to arrest a man who is heavily armed in the manner in which this man is, aud I do not think that they have given the matter the attention that they should have. I think that if some moderate reward were offered for the capture of this man he would very likely be obtained. The gentleman whom he murdered was not a member of his corps at all. He was a colour-sergeant named Lloyd belonging to the 20th battalion of Stratford and he was only there taking a course of instruction in order to pass an examination which would qualify him to occupy a position in his regiment-a young man of twenty-two years. It is a very serious case and I think that something should be done by the government in the way of offering a moderate reward for his capture.
