Mr TURNBULL (WIMMERA, VICTORIA) . - The honorable member for Riverina (Mr. Langtry) in an impassioned speech referred only to what took place in the past and said nothing whatever about the clause or the amendment before the comimittee. The honorable member for Hume (Mr. Fuller) read an extract from an article which appeared in the Ouyen and North-West Express. Honorable member's will recall that during the reading of the article I asked on several occasions who had written it, but the honorable member evaded the question. I challenge 1 1 i m now to disclose the name of the writer.

Mr Fuller - The honorable member may obtain a copy of the newspaper and see for himself who wrote the article.

Mr TURNBULL (WIMMERA, VICTORIA) - Ever since I have been a member of this chamber I have noticed that when certain honorable members have nothing original to contribute to a debate they fall hack upon the published statements of other people. However, they are usually courageous . enough to acknowledge the name of the person whose views' they quote. I am unable to understand the obstinacy of the honorable member in this matter.
