The MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE.

This vote has nothing to do with the experimental farms. There is a vote for that purpose. When we take up the vote in connection with experimental farms these questions may be discussed.

Mr. SPROULE.

I must be right, or I must be wrong. If I am right this is a general vote for repairs to buildings, fences and other things on the experimental farms.

Mr. SPROULE.

We will take, for example, a building going on in Manitoba; I notice that Mr. Cyr is clerk of the work there. Is he not paid out of the estimate for that work ?

The MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS.

These clerks of works, for whom this sum of money is asked, are the general officers who supervise the works of the department in all of the provinces. They have special work in cities. For instance, Mr. Desjardins superintends the works in Montreal. Mr. Cyr lives in Winnipeg and supervises the works in Winnipeg and has his eyes open also to any works around Winnipeg. Sometimes we send him into the territories. These are general officers from whom we expect service all around.
