Mr. FISHER.

Let his ashes rest in peace. He did perfectly right, and my hon. friend from Leeds and the hon. gentlemen around him are the men who are casting aspersions on the memory of Mr. Thos. White. Hon. gentlemen opposite think a great deal of the Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, who was a member of the imperial- government; and yet it is well known that at the time he was a member of the government he was a shareholder in a company in Birmingham which constantly had contracts with the government of which he was a member. The hon. member for St. John (Mr. Daniel) has just alluded to the position of a member advocating changes in the tariff. The Hon. Joseph Chamberlain was a member of a company which was interested in the manufacture of screws and other things at the very time he was carrying on a propaganda for the purpose of giving protection to the industries in which he was engaged.
