Mr DEAKIN - No reference was made to me regarding the kanaka question by Mr. Philp, or by any one else, when I was in Brisbane, or after that date. No communication was made on the subject to the Prime Minister so far as I am aware ; if there had been, I should have known it. No secret compact was entered into between the members of the Federal Government and the Premier of Queensland upon any matter, and no promises or pledges were made either by the Prime Minister or myself during our visit to Queensland as private individuals or afterwards, when Sir Edmund Barton visited that State as the leader of this Government, except those uttered on the public platform and reported in the public press.
