Mr. GERMAN.

In 1862 I was living in my good old native county of Prince Edward and the man who represented Prince Edward at that time was William Anderson, the grand treasurer of the Loyal Orange Order of Upper Canada. He was elected on the separate school question with the support of every Orangeman in the county and of every Roman Catholic in the county, and he voted for separate sechools in the old legislature of Upper Canada. Hon. John Hilliard Cameron did tne same thing, and I say that if any organization as an organization in Canada is responsible for the establishment of separate schools in Upper Canada it is the Loyal Orange organization of the province of Ontario.
Air hon. MEMBER. Because they were Conservatives.
