The MINISTER OF CUSTOMS (Hon. Wm. Paterson) :

The services of Mr. David Hodge, acting preventive officer of customs at Mallory-town, were dispensed with on the 9th February, 1901.

No charges were preferred against him.

It was not considered that there is any necessity for an officer at that point.

It is not the intention of the government to appoint a successor to Mr. Hodge.

Mr. A.

Foster, lockmaster at Jones' Falls, on the Rideau canal, has not been superannuated. Speaking from recollection, I think he has applied for superannuation, but his application has not yet been entertained.

The MINISTER OF FINANCE (Hon. W. S. Fielding).

In the absence of the Minister of Trade and Commerce, I beg to reply :

1. The service to be performed between the Magdalen Islands and Pictou is a weekly one, making each week one full round trip between Pictou and the islands and return, calling each way at Georgetown and Souris, in Prince Edward Island, at Amherst Island, Point BossS, Etang du Nord, Grand Entry and Grindstone Island ; and once each month during the months of June, July, August and September trip to be extended to Iiryan Island, and whenever the weather is unfavourable for landing mails at Etang du Nord, that for House Harbour and Etang du Nord, to be landed at Grindstone Island ; calls at Grand Entry need not be made after the month of September. The service is from the opening to the closing of navigation in each year ; and the contract terminates 31st December, 1901.

2. The tonnage is 350 gross, and 103 net. The vessel is classed 100 A1 at Lloyds'.

3. She holds a certificate for 250 passengers, sleeping berths to accommodate 20 passengers in the saloon, and the same number in the fore-cabin.

4. Her cargo capacity is 15,000 cubic feet, or equal to about 2,000 barrels. Have no special information with reference to facilities for handling the same.

5. Speed is about 121 miles per hour. Number of trips, see answer to No. 1.

6. No complaint has reached the government about the service, which seems to be all that is required.
