YUKON PACIFIC RAILWAY COMPANY.


The House proceeded to consideration of amendments made by the Senate to Bill (No. 65) to incorporate the Yukon Pacific Railway Company.-Mr. McCreary.


LIB

Thomas Barnard Flint

Liberal

Mr. FLINT.

This amendment, as I understand it, prevents this company from building to the boundary line. That matter was fully discussed in the Railway Committee, and it was decided that this company should have this power. I will therefore move that the Bill be referred back to the Railway Committee for further consideration.
