Thanks, very much: I thought it was Long Jaw from the nature of the argument to which he treated us this evening. He is the only gentleman who pretended to present anything in the nature of an argumtent. He threw his hands around his head, held his waist as if he was wearing corsets, and kept us about an hour and a half, but I do not think that any hon. member of the House will be able to understand any one point that he made until he reads ' Hansard ' to-morrow, because I do not think anybody in this House could follow what he was endeavouring to demonstrate. He was of very little use in helping out the Minister of Agriculture. I intend to vote for the motion of my hon. friend for Macdonald for the reason that it has been proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that the men from whom the minister has been taking advice are criminals. If they have been proven to be criminals I am naturally suspicious of the kind of men they will recommend. They will not recommend men better than themselves and therefore I intend to vote for the amendment of my hon. friend.
House divided on amendment (Mr. Staples).
