Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).
I think the hon. member for North Grey (Mr. Thomson) wanted to say a word or two in regard to this*item not with the idea of objecting to it but he was rather inclined to think that some more liberal allowance should be made to this gentleman, who, I understand, has been twenty-seven years in the service of the country.
THE MINISTER OF MARINE AVD FISHERIES. Captain MacGregor is perfectly satisfied with this, and this is the ordinary gratuity.
