Mr. HYMAN.

This matter has only been settled a short time ago, and no surveys have been made since, but surveys and specifications will be made at once.

Mr. HYMAN.

I would hardly like to make a definite promise. I am only acting minister, but if I am in the department for the next month I would like to see the plans and have the reports of the engineers. The good intention of the department was shown by the fact that they have taken a further estimate of $20,000 in addition to this $15,000.

Mr. J. J. HUGHES.

Before you pass from Prince Edward Island I want to say one word more in regard to the matter which was brought up by the hon. member for West Prince (Mr. Hackett). Since the matter was referred to I think it is due to myself to make a still further statement in that regard. I did not expect that that matter would be brought up here at all. My hon. friend if he has read the newspapers of Prince Edward Island at all, must know the facts of the case, and since he has referred to this matter he might as well have the whole statement of the case. He knows that an anonymous writer in the Charlottetown ' Examiner,' the Conservative organ in Charlottetown, who signed himself ' Elector,' but whose identity I think I know, referred to this matter and mentioned my name in connection therewith. The editor of that paper in an editorial stated that he would be glad to publish a reply. I sent a reply to that paper absolutely denying the truthfulness of the statement made by the anonymous writer, but the editor refused to publish my reply. The hon. gentleman who referred to this to-night must have known that as well as he did the other and he might have referred to it. My reply' appeared in the ' Patriot.'

My hon. friend from East Northumberland (Mr. Cochrane) is the sprightly boy of the opposition and very often engages in these unseemly interruptions.

We want to get away, and I do not know that this committee is very much interested in what the hon. gentleman (Mr. J. J. Hughes) may have written in Prince Edward Island.

I think it is due to myself to say that it was not an account of Mr. HYMAN.

animus against the hon. gentleman (Mr. J. J. Hughes) that I brought this question up. He thinks I ought to have known that he had written to the Charlottetown * Examiner.' How could I tell about that ? The hon. gentleman was attending to his business and I was attending to mine. 1 cannot see that the hon. gentleman has any grievance against me in that regard.

Some of these hon. gen-tlement are very anxious to go home. Some of them, who live within 500 miles of Ottawa," can go home every Friday night; but we who live 1,000 miles or more away must remain here all session. Let these hon. gentlemen go away. We are here to attend to our duties as representatives of the people, and we are not to be blocked by anybody in this chamber. I wish to say to the hon. gentleman (Mr. J. J. Hughes) in conclusion, that I have no desire to make any personal attack upon him. I hear some hon. member say ' sit down.' I want to tell that hon. gentleman that I will not sit down at his word.

Mr. DEPUTY SPEAKER.

We are discussing an item that we passed some time ago. Now, I wish to bring to the attention of the committee this fact, concerning which there seems to be a false impression-each of these items is a subject in itself, and when it is discussed and passed it cannot be referred to again.

This ends the list of these items for Prince Edward Island. There was a request made by the minister last night to give us a statement of the items that were passed then showing the counties in which the works were situated. May I ask if that statement has been prepared ?
