Hon. Mr. HAGGART.
said on a previous day ; but meantime the record was down, and in reply to that I simply said that the record would speak for itself, and the House would judge on the record. I have the record in my hand :
Moved by Mr. Bell, seconded by Mr. Barker, that P. S. Archibald, C.E., Moncton, be summoned to appear as a witness before this committee at its next meeting.
There was no reason given, no explanation, no charge. It was simply as if any man stood up in the committee and said, I move that John Brown be summoned.
