The PRIME MINISTER (Rt. Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier) :

1. Yes.
2. No.
3. Morris tubes are no longer required. Free ammunition is isstfed to rifle associations only. None has ever been issued to educational establishments. They are only organized for drill.
4. Yes. By the application received it appears that the corps consist each of fifty young gentlemen between the age of fifteen and twenty years, and consequently all above sixteen years of age can form themselves into a rifle club and thus obtain the advantages they desire under provisions of G. O. 150 of 1901, paragraph 6.
As regards lads under sixteen years, the major general does not consider that they should be entrusted with ammunition and permitted to perform range practices.
