Mr. DANIEL.

They do not require any reorganization. I do not suppose there is a corps in the whole Dominion of Canada that is in better condition and has had better report for efficiency than the 3rd Regiment of Artillery. It has had a high record for years, and why this corps should have been dropped from the list of those to be drilled this year, I do not understand. Evidently the commanding officer has come to the conclusion, I presume with some good reason, that his corps was not to be drilled this year, and I shall read the order he issued.

3rd 'New Brunswick' Regiment, Canadian Artillery- Regimental orders by Lieut.-Col. John B. M. Baxter, commanding.

St. John, N.B., May 4, 1911.

1. In view of the fact that this regiment has not yet been ordered to perform annual training this year it is desirable that its organization should be preserved intact and that all ranks should endeavour, by the exercise of voluntary spirit, to maintain the corps in the state of efficiency which has been its pride for years.

2. The .first battery of artillery in St. John was founded 118 years ago to-day. Since that time the artillery organization in this city and province has been continuous, and since 1860 there has not been a year when the regiment has not been on parade.

3. Under these circumstances the O.C. the regiment desires that all ranks shall join in performing voluntary drill during the coming season, paying particular attention to infantry drill and ceremonial, as the regiment will probably have several opportunities of appearing in public. It is to be distinctly understood that no one has authority to promise that any pay will be granted for the services so performed.

4. Roll books of attendance will be kept posted as usual. Recruits who are willing to serve on these terms will be accepted. 0. C.'s batteries will make the usual arrangements for drill nights and other details.

5. The N.C.O.'s and men are particularly reminded that they are not in any way released from their obligation to serve in the militia by reason of the corps not being ordered to perform annual training. Any who may wish to join or serve in any other corps may apply for discharge in the usual way.

6. All ranks are specially reminded that it is not consistent with discipline in any way to criticise the action of their military superiors.

7. The officers of the regiment will attend a special service at St. Paul's church on the

day of His Majesty's coronation. The hour, to be named afterwards, will be as nearly as possible that of the ceremony in Westminster Abbey. Full dress will be worn.

By order.

Major, Adj., 3rd Regt. C.A.

The name of the adjutant is not given here. It is quite evident from that order, issued by the commanding officer of this corps, that he must have had reason for believing that his corps was not going to perform annual drill this year. I do not know when the orders for annual drill are issued, but I presume that it has been customary to issue them previous to the present date. Of course, if the minister states that the corps is to drill, this adjutant must be labouring under a considerable misapprehension, and I would be glad to hear from the minister that the corps will be on the roster for drill as it always has been. While on my feet I would like to remind the minister that this corps is one of 1 think only three in the whole Dominion of Canada which, while it has been thoroughly efficient for years, a corps in which I take a great interest myself, having belonged to it for over twenty years, and one which I think stands as well on the records made by the inspectors who have inspected the various regiments as any corps in the Dominion, appears to be picked out in some way, so that it has not even one representative officer, non-commissioned officer or man-on the contingent which is to be taken to the coronation. I think there is good reason to ask the minister why this corps should not be granted the same privilege, if it is to be called such, that is given to every other corps, I believe, in the Dominion. If my memory serves me, the minister stated in his place in this House that there would be one representative of every corps in the Dominion in that coronation contingent. This corps, although it was asked to name one from each battery, named the men, but none has been chosen.
