Mr. OLIVER:

That may be. I thought it was only right to draiw attention to this fact, and /to urge, as Ithe committee at Edmonton has urged', that the cases that have already occurred /under voluntary service should receive such consideration /as is within the scope and possibilities of the Government. There is another resolution of this committee that I desire to place before the House. It reads:

That the pension of a widowed mother be the same as that of a wife, provided her son or sons who has or have been killed in action or died on active service were at the time of enlistment or subsequently thereto her sole support. [DOT]

I do not know how far this goes beyond the present regulation, tout I have read it for the purpose of putting it before the Government.

Mr. OLIVER:

I understand the argument of my hon. friend from Frontenac (Mr. Edwards) to be that being optional it placed the officer more dependent upon the favour of his superior than upon good service, whereas if he gets it as a straight increase in salary, of course he is still independent.

Mr. OLIVER:

All we want to know is

how this very remarkable increase in the estimates, in regard to this particular item, comes about. We really ought to have that information because the increase is a very startling one. While I would not wish to be too suspicious, when we see the figures of the estimates performing such startling gymnastics, we necessarily become suspicious.

Mr. OLIVER:

No, I did not wish for that. All I wanted was to know how it came that we were voting this particular sum of money for the Northwest rebellion.
