Mr. BALLANTYNE:

They were trying to get out of the contract. They were trying to work the Naval Department to see if we were easy and would let them out of the contract, which we certainly will not do.

Mr. BALLANTYNE:

I have no knowledge of law, but I should think that the only proceedings which the Justice Department could take against the firm would be to insist upon payments as they became due under the contract.

Mr. BALLANTYNE:

Immediately they failed to make their first payment under the contract, my department wrote them, and followed the matter up for a considerable time. We did not get any satisfactory answer from the New Brunswick Rolling Mills at all; so, after following the matter up for a reasonable time, we turned it over to the Justice Department, and told them to take proceedings against the firm.
