The newspapers say that certain Toronto gentlemen have bought the road and it will be unloaded upon the people of Canada. I presume this wharf is part of the scheme.

I do not know what the hon. gentleman (Mr. Sam. Hughes) means by unloading, but I have this to say that from my standpoint, it is a very proper thing for the Intercolonial Railway and for the government to acquire these branch lines provided they acquire them at a proper price. I am a strong advocate in the interests of the Intercolonial Railway and in the interests of the people that are serving these branch lines, of the policy of the government acquiring them. It will give the people of that country an opportunity to be served by a proper railway system as well as the people of any other part of Canada.

No. The peoplp of Ontario who pay a large share of this, object to being taxed for the benefit of Mr. Peter Ryan or any gentleman who makes it his business to go around getting these roads and unloading them on the government. The Conmees and Ryans and men of that stripe are all right for themselves, but we should not be parties to their little games. This is part and parcel of the scheme.

What does the minister know about it '! I don't think he knows where Ciu^iquet is.. I assume that some members from the maritime provinces told him about it and he put it in the vote.

Mr. TURGEON.

This very work has been asked for by the people of Gloucester county for the last ten years, and long before there was any talk of a change in ownership of the Caraquet Railway. It is the proper place for a wharf and will serve the people of Shippigan and Miscou islands. I have been trying to get this vote for several years, and it is only this year we succeeded in getting it.

They have to bring it in small boats and transfer it to large boats at great expense and trouble.

I will take it up with the engineer to-morrow. He says it can be done immediately.

The wharf there is in pretty bad shape. Is this to be built of wood ?
