Cnrvell, Carleton, N.B., who re. plied to the Minister of Tublie Works, ei'eiiUiii Boiiio exdU'muut at the out- set of Ills speech, by referring to Mr. speech as bluster and threats. The Minister had threatened that the press of the Dominion will be iinuzxlDd, and that hordes of detectives who had operated In Maudonald would Invade every constituency In the Dominion. There was, he declar- ed, no semblance of argument in the Bpeech made the Minister, who was the arch-priest of all this tyranny. The1 charges made against htm in the report submitted by the leader of the opposition were of a most serious nature, and he had replied by sub- mitting two affidavits based upon nothing; but hearsay. According to one man he had been offered liquo-r and ?25.00, which he did not take. We on this side of the House are not trying to .defend Sii'ton, Sullivan, Prince or Walkinshaw. li they did wrong they .should he punished; but we do protest against the arbitrary, unfair and un-Brltish attempt to throttla justice, which marked this contest, practises which would not be tolerated even in lluesia. Air. CUT veil then declared that the iUir.istcr was putting up a bluff, when he Raid that he hart other affidavits, when ho was interrupted by Col. Sharp. "I am not talking to you, but to the empty seat of the Minister of Public cried Mr. Can-ell, at the top of his hiugs, Conservative -cries of "He will be mingled with the Liberal ghouls, "Let him making it Impossible fey the speaker to pro- coed for a moment. Mr. then proceeded to give ihe House a running story of the facts recited in the affidavits submitted by Sir. Oliver, in connection with the four (trrests made in Macclonald. In doing, so, he claimed that' Mr. Walkinsha'w had not been permitted to see his counsel until the day lie was placed on trial. Mciflhen Butts In Mr. Arthur Melghen challenged the accuracy of this statement, and Mr. Carvell shouted back, "It must hurt my friend, or ,he would not writhe." A moment later he said, "1 will give the member for Portage la. Prairie the credit of being the one man from Manitoba who would like to be a gea- tleman." For a looked as' thongh the're was going In be a scene, but the Speaker intervened. Reciprocity Lives Mr. Carvell remarked upon the fact that the 'Minister of Finance had in his speech before the House brought in JJie question of reciprocity, for what reason he could not tell, unless it was with' the 'ultimate intention of himself resurrecting it. I Mr. White here rose in his seat, find explained that he had dimply wished to gain an idea of where the party stood on the policy now. will tell the Minister of Justice where I saM Mr. Carvell. "As far as this humble member is concern- c-d, I intend to resurrect reciprocity, if, as the Minister claims, it is dead. 1 intend to speak of it at every pos- sible opportunity, whether inside or outside of the house, f desire to say that reciprocity was economically sound 'before" September "I, IfUl, and is economically sound after September 21, 1312. I will tell the honorable Minister, that with all his own money, ail the money of his friends the man- ufacturers and the railroad corpora- tions, 'with all the money from the Un- ionist party in Britain, an-d from the United States, lie could not again de- feat reciprocity, which won him and his party the election last year. I tell the lion, minister that we want him to Tcsnrruct reciprocity." "All ol' the Minister inquired. "Yes, all of Mr. Carvell replied, "and we want him to resurrect the British preference." Tlie Miiiistor, proceeded Mr. Car- veil, had asked what they hat! test! through the defeat of reciprocity? "You have lost shouted a voice. "Yes, we lost replied Mr. Carvell, "hut we -did not lose honor We lost power, but in addition to that tlie country lost millions of dollars.' Mr. Carvell proceeded to Quote fig- ures of Canada's trade in the last fis- cal year, to show the amount of duty which had been paid by the producer on exports to the United States, throngh_the loss of reciprocity. The West, 'during the past two months alone, had lost half a million in livestock through failure to got free entry to the American market, In, the last flec'al year, he said, three ailllfo'n dollars had beeu paid in duty by the maritime provinces. One man in the. constituency of Carleton, N.B., aloue had paid in duties.
