If this does not provide for an increase to the motor-men, we cannot give it to them under this item. We will have to take them into consideration separately.

Mr. GALLERY.

The merchants and manufacturers in! Montreal are not well pleased with the Wellington street bridge, commonly called the Curran bridge, and it is their intention later on to ask the government to put a tunnel there. If I am here next session the government may hear from me about it.

Mr. HUGHES (Victoria).

I would direct the attention of the minister to the fact that the system of letting water in and out of locks is very tedious, speaking of the minor canals, and not of the main water-ways. It is very easy to adopt a much more expeditious mode of opening and shutting the gates than is now in force.

Some resolutions reported.

The MINISTER OF FINANCE moved the adjournment of the House.
