Mr. STAPLES.

Provided you make these inquiries and discover that the amount of duty that is paid at Carman is as great as that at Selkirk will you promise to establish a customs house there?

If you do not pay more than they do at Selkirk I will not do it.

I suppose, when you make your inquiries and find that it is as deserving, from the consideration of revenue, as the town of Neepawa is, you will establish an office at Carman.

You are asking me to do something that no other member has asked. I am going to do the best I can.

I have applications from towns in Ontario that are almost twice as large as Carman.

I have listened in this House to discussions about places that do not do anything like the business that the town of Carman would do. I did not hear

the minister say what the revenue of Virden is ?

$22,900 for nine months. If Carman is paying that much, you look out.

I have been looking out for four years and I have not seen the horizon yet. If the Minister of Customs made inquiries he would find that the town of Carman is well entitled to a public building.

I don't think it will grow as much as Carman will.

I wish to know what lumber was imported and what duty was collected on it during the last five years.

The member who lives in Selkirk goes around taking credit for getting new post offices and customs offices and lines of railway for his constituency and I think this is the proper time to discuss whether his claims are correct or not.
