There must be somewhere in the Act of incorporation authority for the Grand Trunk Pacific to transfer these over to the Grand Trunk Railway or otherwise the Grand Trunk Railway could not take the stock. I do not think they could do it under this clause.
On section 26,
Mr. MCCARTHY moved that section 26 be struck out and the following substituted therefor :
The company may construct, acquire and operate ropeways for the transportation of ores and other freight, and also tramways, not exceeding ten miles in length in any one case, to or from any point on its railway or any branch thereof, in the province of British Col-
umbia. and shall have all such powers lor the expropriation of land requisite for the convenient construction and operation of such works as are given by the Railway Act to railway companies for railway purposes, but the powers conferred upon the company hy this section shall not be exercised until a plan showing the route of the ropeways or tramways proposed to be constructed have been duly filed with the Department of Railways and Canals, and approved by the Railway Committee of tho Privy Council, or such authority, tribunal or commission as is designated or constituted under any Act of the parliament of Canada, for the regulation or control of railways, and no such tramway or other way shall be constructed upon or along any street, highway or other public place within the limits of any municipality until the company shall have first obtained the consent of such municipality, within which such street, highway or other public place is situate.
2. Before such approval is given, notice of the application therefor shall be given in writing to every other railway company operating a railway in the said locality, and such notice shall be published in the ' Canada Gazette ' for at least one month previous to the time named in the notice for the making of such application. and such notice shall state that all persons interested may appear and be heard on such application.
