The commissioners add that their remarks apply with equal force to the1 commissions to which Allison would iiavc been entitled from the Edwards Valve Mfg.

The commis- sioners flnd that they do not agree vith the argument advanced by isel r'or Mr. Kyte, that in placing and awarding of the contracts the shell commission was influenced by Gen. eral Hughes.

They think that company was wrongly described as a the letting of contracts for time fuses, the commissioners add: "What we have said as to time fuses does not apply to graze fuses. It is undoubted that that type of fuse could have been produced in Canada, within the time required by the Canadian manu- facturers has been demonstrated by what they and especially the Russell Motor company have since done." Touching on Col. Carnegie's respon- sibility, the commissioners say they do not doubt that he was actuated by what he rightly deemed to be the urgent need of. the case and that noth- ing which is said in any of the criti- cism is intended tr. reflect upon his honesty and integrity. The commis- sioners express the opinion that at the time the contract was let would have been a fair price for graze fuses instead of The loss to the Imperial government had, however, been minimized owing-lo the fact that owing to the failure in making deliv- eries the contract was cancelled and the price reduced.

The commissioners are not inclined to think that the contracts were let to the United States firms on account of pressure fr.om "higher ups." After quoting evi- dence on this point given by Lloyd Harris and T. A. Russell the commis- sioners say that while the two wit- nesses undoubtedly reflected the im- pression made upon their minds by what was said of Gen. Bertram and mushroom company" b.-.ause, Col.
