The POSTMASTER GENERAL (Hon. Sir Wm. Mulock) :

1. Yes.

2. Dr. R, W. Ells and one assistant-Yes.

3. Examinations made over the island generally. Examinations proved the presence of several anticlinal folds traversing the island, notably, near the west coast near Miminegash or Campbelltown, near Sum-merside, at Gallas Point, pear Wood Islands, and other points.

There are flo indications of coal on the surface, since all the rocks exposed belong to the upper carboniferous, Which overlie tire true coal measures of Nova Scotia, but it is probable these may underlie the island, in which case they can only be reached by borings.

The most favourable locations for boring are regarded as near Miminegash, on the west coast, near Summerside, and at Gallas Point or Wood Islands, preferably the former.

LONGSHOREMEN'S STRIKE. IN MONTREAL.

CON

Frederick Debartzch Monk

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. F. D. MONK (Jacques Cartier).

Before the Orders of the Day are called. I wish to ask : Has any action been taken by the government in regard to the strike prevailing among the longshoremen at Montreal, and which has been creating so much disturbance in commercial operations there ? Has anything been done by the government, and if so what has been done ?

The PRIME MINISTER (Rt. Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier).

My hon. friend (Mr. Monk) is quite aware that the government has no authority to interfere in this matter. The law provides for the existing conditions, and the law is being followed. The local authorities have thought it advisable to call upon the military authorities to give them assistance, and all the assistance that it was in the power of the military authorities to give has been rendered.

Edward Frederick Clarke

Mr. E. F. CLARKE (West Toronto).

Might I ask the right hon. gentleman, if there is any foundation for the statement that His Worship the Mayor of Montreal has appealed to the government, that the expenditure in connection with the calling out of the militia force shall be borne by the government and not by the municipality of Montreal ? If the Mayor of Montreal lias made that request, has the government given any reply ?

The PRIME MINISTER.

The request has been made. The law is to be followed, and I do not interpret the law to mean that the government is to bear that expense.
