Some jnanufnc- urcrs liy to aome Qf tile specifi- cations, others lived nn to others, and some lived up to none. One and all j had to beat the game somewhere. For example, not one manufacturer kept faith in the matter cf. hee'is. The heels were supposed to be reinforced with ateel slugs to Keep them from wearing; soft metal was used in- stead, the idea of these benefactors probably being to make two pairs of shoes grow where only one grew be- fore and 50 land another "order. The specifications called for dubbing or pleases with ihe manufacturers, but the fact remains that boch failed in their duly. Rciten is a relative term as ap- plied to shoes. What Is a good shoe for dancing is a. .rotten shoe for work in the trenches but neither the Militia Department manufacturers seem jirers went on making itta Department 'went on buying the rotten shces Ionff after both knew that the shoes were utterly unfitted oil dressing to keep the 'water out, for the purpose for winch they were hut only one manufacturer thought Intended. For tliat matter, rotten (it necessary to put Ihe dressing it. bought shoes are being made and right now, the last output being quite as bad as the first. Nobody has the courage to say stop. Some manufacturers seemed to think that a scnl full of patriotism would make up for a sole full of c'ttrk and paper. A superintendent in one of The, shoe factories Save touching evidence along this lina. He told how the employees 'were called together a day after an order for thirty-two thousand pairs was land- ed and how two of the directors ad- dressed them on the high privilege wliich was theirs in making shoes I for the men v.-ere to bleed and die for tlieir country. It 'was a great i day in the shoe factory. The place fairly be'.ched patriotism, liut ihe superintendent didn't Icse sight of the main principle oE good sboemaking, j might go twc is to keep cost down and i chances were j dividends up. The factory hands In many cases the leather was bad, poor naru of the hide being uaed, braced steel or wood thanks and the soles were not thick enough. Also the shapes were unsuitable the toes being too narrow and the heels count- ers cramped with tbe result that every time the soldiers marched out they raised a fine crop of blisters. Generally speaking, stitching was bad. Some of the shoes fcl! apart in five days, others wore out before the men reached Valcartier, some sur vived the sea vpyagc. the' Aflanti- Ooean not being a favorable spot 'or and some went to pieces on Salisbury Plain.

Not to put too fine a point of it, bad shoes were the rule, good shoes the exception. committee is in receipt of samples from every place where Canadian shoes wa'iked and not one kind word goes with the loi. General Alderson cabled from Salis- bury Plain that shoes were bad. The .Militia Department cabled Llmt forty thousand pairs of overshoes, were on the way to take our boys over -the Jiard spot. Briton though he7 is, General Alderson's sense of humor was thoroughly aroused, lie replied that a'll .the overshoes in the "world would not- remedy the original de- fects in bad shoes. It is on reccrd that the shoes were ashamed of themselves. One witness testified that when he went out to march his shoes were brown and tliat when lie hack his stipes black. They had changed color through sheer mortification. At some concentration camps the shoes were EO had ,Lhat the men were unable to parade, .much less drill in them. At .Halifax whole companies manoeuvred with shingles on their feet, oUier companies with their feet tied up in -bags. It thai or the cold, coid ground, the shoes had long cease'd to afford protection. There was no excuse for that particular batch of shoes. It was not a rush order and1 the Militia Department could not plead hurry. Those rhoes were taken out of stores on hand be- fore the war began. Their badness was what you might call a habit. Ofllcers and privates, in large numbers, .have been examined by the mittee. They .have nothing tc less by tel'iing the truth and they went back to iheir work, and that i Roys' Scottish Fusiliers, now cobbl- ing for Canada, gave evidence belore the committee that lie had' never handled worse shoes in bis life. Flim- particnlar batch of shoes better and no worse than the ordin- ary run of the shoes for Sparks street, perhaps, but bad ones for soldiers. Olaer manufacturara sy, he said, from Uae ground ,up, do ye ken. Asked SERBIA HAS TASTED BITTERNESS OF WAR have invariably testified that the shoes were bad. Sometimes they have put it stronger than that. Tiic defence urges toat thcse'-ineu are not shoes experts but that is Legging the question. In a manner of apcaKing every man is a shoe expert because every man buys shoes antl knows by experience how long a nalr oushi to last. These disinterested witnesses are in marked contrast tc the shoe in- spectors appointed by this govern- ment. The minority report ivll) hardly leave tfie subject 'rcttbout pay- ing its respects to the ahao inspec- tors. In most cases they knew noth- ing about 'shoes. Nothing ivas Just exactly ttlml they were expected to know because where ignorance IK bliss it is fatty (o lie wise. 'No in- sjwctor with one eye on the govern- ment that gave him his Job and the other eye on the continued favor of the leather trade can expect to know anything incriminating about shoes.
