-We have a lighthouse at Summerside harbour, and I would like to know if this acetylene light is to be used there. If so, I would suggest that the substructure of the lighthouse should be repaired before putting in these expensive lights. I called attention a few days ago to this. The department should see that the Summerside lighthouse is put in proper repair and also the breakwater. I noticed the other evening, when the hon. member for West Prince (Mr. Hackett) was asking why the ' Stanley ' was taken off the Sum-inerside and Cape Tormentine route, the reply was that the quantity of ice there made it too dangerous to leave the boat on that route. I take issue with the hon. gentleman. Where the hon. minister got his information I do not know, but I can only tell him that the ice, when the ' Stanley ' was taken away in December last, was no impediment whatever. The ' Stanley ' left on a very fine day. It took five hours to cross, which was an unusually long time with the conditions of the weather and the ice conditions in the harbour. In the meantime, during the whole fine day, with no notice or warning to any of the merchants or shippers of Prince Edward Island, without a word to those shipping their goods from the mainland to Prince Edward Island via Cape Tormentine, the boat left Cape Tormentine in the afternoon for Georgetown. They did not even wire to the shippers at Summerside until after the boat had left. In the meantime, the shippers at Summerside were hauling their freight, grain and products of one kind and another down to Summerside wharf to be shipped. It was not only an insult to the commercial interests of Prince Edward Island, but it was a wholly uncalled for act on the part of the department and their agents and Captain Brown upon whom * they were, apparently, depending to take the boat away from Summerside when we had absolutely fine weather and the ice conditions were favourable. Let me tell the committee something about the ice conditions. On the 28th December, 1903, there were six miles of ice, that had caught with the frost of practically the last night or two. In the heaviest part of it this ice was only two inches thick. We know the capacity of the ' Stanley.'
