'Mr. Speaker, Sir, I rise and with me rises the democratic principle "

The floor was sanded, the people were of the lower orders, rough-looking men drinking beer or sipping cordials; women from whom one instinctively looked away, and whose shrill laughter was devoid of a single note of music. It was all very flat, very uninteresting.

After consultation, a few of the party, including Kerr, whose knowledge of Indian ways it was thought might be useful, left the breastwork to spy on the enemy or at least to try to pick up some knowledge of their whereabouts.
