Mr. FORTIN.

I think I am perfectly in order. I asked a question of the hon. member, which he answered telling- me that he had so much to do that he had no time to consider this subject. I am now dealing with that part of his statement, and it seems to me I may be permitted to say what, to my mind, is the task he has undertaken and what are the obstacles in his way. If I am well informed, the hon. gentleman stands in this peculiar position as regards the work he has undertaken-he is chief of the Liberals of the province of Quebec, as he stands in the place of Sir George Etienne Cartier, when the alliance was "formed with himself as chief of the Liberals.

Mr. FORTIN.

We will consider that later on. I wish to point out for the moment how difficult is the hon. gentleman's task. He stands, therefore, as I say, in the position of chief of the Liberals in the province of Quebec with not a single member as a follower. Supposing now the hon. member chooses to say that he stands as chief of the French Conservatives of the province of Quebec. If my impression is correct. there again he has no following, he is not even chief of himself, for he is not a full-bred French Canadian.

Mr. FORTIN.

That interest had been paid up to 1897, and none had been paid since ?
