But in the original item it reads :

To the Bruce Mines and Algoma Railway for 21 miles from the end of its line as subsidized by chapter 7, 1901, northward, not exceeding 21 miles.

In one instance 'a subsidy is given for a railway northwards from Bruce Mines, and in the other it is given for a railway southerly from the junction. This seems to be either for a different railway, or else they start at different points on the same railway.

Where is the junction of the Bruce Mines Railway from the Bruce Mines ? Is it southerly or northerly ?

I understand that with a piece already built, the portion subsidized will form a continuous railway.

If I remember rightly there has been a bonus for this particular portion before, and I think the amount has been paid ?

I remember very plainly the debate in the House in which the member for that section of the country explained this. I think that in some way or another there has been a payment of the bonus.

So no portion of the line of road for which you are now asking a bonus has been bonused before ?

Mr. HENDERSON.

I wish to draw the attention of the minister to the difference in the wording of the various clauses in this item. 'Sections A and B are as follows :

(a.) For that portion of its line of railway from Bruce Mines Junction southerly to the town of Bruce Mines, on Lake Huron, a distance not exceeding three miles ;

(b.) For the 6 miles of railway constructed from Gordon Lake station, being the end of its line as subsidized by chapter 7 of 1901, northward to Rock lake, a distance of six miles.

In section B authority is asked for the subsidizing of six miles of railway constructed, not to be constructed. I would like to know from the minister if this six miles of railway is already completed, and if that is the portion of the road lying in between the three miles and the twelve miles ?
