Mr. KAULBACH.

The hon. minister will see that last year just previous to the election, an appropriation was made for dredging Bridgewater, or the La Have and Lunenburg.

The MINISTER OF FINANCE.

Yes.

Mr\ KAULBACH. And that all last summer had passed by without any effort being made to have the work completed. I do not want to impute wrong motives to members of the government that it was done for a certain purpose, but it looks suspicious.

We have made an appropriation but you are not satisfied.

So do we, but we cannot get the dredges.

Mr. KAULBACH.

There is no better expenditure at this day than in the construction of dredges in sufficient numbers to complete the work that is required.

Mr. KENDALL.

In Cape Breton we have required dredges for two places, but we have been unable to obtain them there for the same reason given by the Minister of Public Works, that the dredges were not available.

Mr. CLANCYr. What is the extent and nature of the traffic into Porter's Lake where this work is proposed to be done ?

It is a small place. It is a harbour of refuge for fishermen.

There are some lumber mills up the lake.

The MINISTER OF FINANCE.

Yes, boats run up there. Porter's Lake is a. navigable lake, not for heavy draft vessels, but owing to the channel being closed the traffic has been very little. I have seen vessels carrying lumber from the mills up at the head of the lake.

Is that a lumbering district ?

I do not know whether the mills are at present in operation. I once represented the county in the local House, but I have not been there for some years.
