Senator MILLEN - Seeing that it is becoming a practice for honorable senators to make personal explanations, I desire to say a few words in reply to the statement of Senator Lynch. It appears that I have done him some slight injustice so far as the naming of a specific duty is concerned. If, in speaking on the spur of the moment, I said that he voted for a particular duty, and my statement is inaccurate, I apologize at once. I do not remember saying whether he voted for a 5 per cent, duty or a7½ per cent. duty. The whole purport of my remarks was that, whilsi Senator Lynch charged Senator Gould and myself with being proGerman because we had voted for low duties, he himself had voted and fought tenaciously for the lowest possible duty on mining machinery, and his explanation to-day is a practical admission of that fact.
