"The proper scene for the Board ol Commerce discussion is said Judge rtobson in an interview with the CiiHiidiait lYei-s.

Until then'l will preserve silence." so stated in cry letter flt tho ;3rd oJ February to Sir George rosier. Look at this instance uf Mr. Murilcci's treatment ot the facts. What I realis- ed was this: "'The economic policy ot the coun- should bo toward high nrkes and against low prices. Numerous gov- ernmental agencies; at the of the people ot Canada, are doing Iheir best to get the highest -world prices for Canadian produce. In view of this any machinery to reduce the prices of this produce is simply abortive.' "Obviously I.was dealing -with Can. adten farmers and (-reiv- ers o! all kinds, raisers of livestock. I -was not dealing, with manufactur- ers. The suggestion that I was.liuked up In some way with, the manufactur- ing business is new to me. I have never been able to anv evidence of If.

Crescent Creamery Faetum "Ground sixth s-jls forth an inci- dent, which, shows that spirit in an- other torai. This relates to Mr. Hang's letter containing the factum of tho Crescent 'Creamery .Company in the rase regarding Jurisdiction. The let- ter of Mr. Hngg fa ma was lying ex- posed on my desk. I had not seen it. How it got there do not knfw ejcept that I was told that a clerk opened It and so placed it. Mr. Mur- dock In iny absence dammed my desk, found the letter, abstracted a copy and has freely published it Tho circumstance is being deliberately dis- torted for the purpose of doing me barm.' Such use of tho'incident is In itself evidence of nuHr.e. The facts are that Mr. Jlugg, us solicitor for the Crescent Creamery Company, had csked roe if the board would grant a re-hearing, t said I thought it was s; that he could only tako pro- Statement of Men's Representa- tive Claims Soldier Appren- tices Are Underpaid, ceedings set out in our acts, and that Lethbridse Iron outside of technics! objections the constitutional question was the only one.

We are producers legal works which take us incidentally into the constitutional field. To see tho factum as a matter of legal interest is different to revis- ing it. Observe the 'If YOU see fit' in Mr. Hugg's letter. never would 'see fit.' On the contrary, :by some hind fortune and entirely without" picimi ot its ultimate usefulness, I had warned Ji. W. Greene, Ottawa.- solicitor for the company, that the faetutn was not to be shown to me. -His version ot the conversation is recorded in the following letter which 1 got at-the time the Incident was first exploded me: 'Oluuia, "H.

Iia further of tills I need only say I have just returned'from Calgary after making srrangements for tra ferrins the apprentices to shops iu Mr. Langford's district to Rnish their course, the boys being assured of benefit from government -allowance, and cot the company. -Mr. 'Barnacal denies that bis firm has profited at the expense of appren- tices employed and gives figures in- tended to prove that'he has pay- ins more than the minimum ,6et by and without his knowledge that I in- tended or proposed to send it." Mr, Hugg adds thai he had arrived at tie conclusion that tho parliament of Canada had no" jurisdiction in tho inatter ot scttius up a nrice-fixing tri- bunal.
