The MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS.

That work is composed of 29,000 cubic feet of cribwork at 7 cents a yard. After the 31st December, 1900, the sum of $500, appropriated for 1901, was expended in constructing two blocks of cribwork. one on either side of a little brook or creek which issues at this point. The northern block is

115 feet long, 10 feet wide and 12 feet high; the southern block, 50 feet long, 10 feet wide and from 6 to 9 feet high. Both blocks are of crlbwork well filled with ballast and covered on top with round piles well spiked down. Their object is to replace an old breakwater destroyed many years ago. That is all the explanation I can give as I have not been there myself. My engineers tell me it is a good work, and parliament has voted the money.

Windsor Harbour-Shear dams, training dykes and deepening River Avon, $2,300.

The MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS.

I know something more about this work because I went there and examined it with care. The harbour is filling with mud and we have built sheardams to create a strong current there.

Mr. CLANCY.

It was expected that the Committee on Public Accounts would meet to-morrow, but I hear there is some reason why it will not. When will it meet, and will we have two meetings, as was promised, this week ? .

The MINISTER OF FINANCE.

I do not dare to make any promise in the absence of the chairman, but I hope we will be able to meet on Friday. The reason for postponing the meeting on Wednesday is one which is common to both sides and it is a well understood rule that in such a case the committee meetings are cancelled. I hope there shall be a meeting on Friday morning, but without consulting the chairman, I do not care to make a more definite statement.
