Mr. HYMAN.

Very seldom. They are sent to the King's Printer first, and after they come back they are inserted in the newspapers. The hon. gentleman made certain references to the hon. member for Rainy River (Mr. Oonmee). Those references were very unfair. 1 have this to say with regard, to the hon. member for Rainy River-and I think it is due him in all fairness that I should say it-that never in the course of my life has he mentioned the word dredging to me. I know nothing about his connection with the company. He has explicitly denied in the House that he had anything to do with it. All I can say is that never in his life has he spoken to me with regard to the matter of dredging. But what use is there of anybody making a denial to anything said by the hon. member for East Simcoe (Mr. Bennett)? The hon. member has read a letter from an hon. gentleman who occupied the position of Deputy Speaker in Mr. BENNETT.
this House which that hon. gentleman denies categorically, in the strongest possible language
