Mr. FITZPATRICK.

I think it is desirable that we should have time to consider the effect of this amendment on the other clauses of the Bill. In the first place, we ought to try to give effect to the evident intention of the House. I think, therefore, the wiser course would be for the hon. member to move that the committee rise.

Hon. H. R. EMMERSON (Minister of Railways and Canals).

I have received some information with respect to the question raised by the leader of the opposition

(Mr. R. L. Borden), and I feel it is but due to tlie Intercolonial management that I should give the information.

Mr. EMMERSON.

At the time the telegram came, the train was in Moncton where the passengers could readily get fed. Perhaps the difficulty was that some of them did not want to purchase a meal. This telegram is dated Moncton, February 8, and is addressed to Mr. Pottinger :

The storm which set in night before last at Halifax extended yesterday as far as St. John and Newcastle, it is now about over west of Moncton, but continues east and is particularly bad east of Springhill. Number 34-

which is the through express from Montreal east- .

which left here 14 o'clock yesterday and

numbers 2, St. John to Halifax, and 26, C. P. R., now' stuck at Springhill. 84, Moncton to Spring-hill local, with tw-o engines from here yesterday evening, now' stuck at Evans. 33, through express west, left here last night about two hours late, and, is doing fairly well. 10, night express from St. John last night, 2 and 34 arrived here about noon, 10 and 2 cancelled and transferred to 34, being held. 9, night express, Halifax to St. John, with two engines stuck one mile west of Londonderry ; 1, 3 and 4 cancelled. Apple train stuck all night at Windsor Junction, steamer waiting this train, will leave Windsor Junction about noon. Halifax yard is in very bad shape. All cars have to be moved one by one, a consolidated and five shunting engines working trying to get 20, now at Point Tupper, through. 19 cancelled.

I may say to my bon. friend that the gentleman wbo sent the telegram, a Halifax gentleman I believe, had reached Monc-tion, and no doubt bad had a good meal before we heard of his telegram in this House.

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. R. L. BORDEN.

I am very glad he has progressed so far. I did not mention the matter by way of criticism of the Intercolonial, as 1 stated I had had a somewhat similar experience, which I had found under the circumstances to be unavoidable.
