I am not opposed to it, but I am pointing out its inadequacy. My information is you would have to extend the wharf at least 500 feet before it would be of any great service to navigation. Leaving these works in a half finished condition is not helping the progress of the province.

If there is no harbour 1 there capable of accommodating vessels and

no depth of water, a breakwater would be of no use, no matter how many miles you would extend it. I understand Rustico has a very good harbour.

At the lowest tide vessels drawing seven feet may pass 'over the bar into the harbour. The trouble is that the hon. gentleman seems to think that breakwaters are wharfs.

There is not a season in which there is not a vessel stranded on Rustico Harbour bar. There was better accommodation there years ago than there is to-day. I remember when twelve or fifteen vessels were trading on the north side of the province, but they have disappeared one by one and there are not more than two or three now; a fact which proves there are no good harbours there. The minister tries to blame me for not passing this item.

I cannot help that. Let me call his attention to the fact that a few years ago the government began to build a wharf at Point Prim. Does he know about that?

I do not see an item in

the estimates for Point Pz*im. You were supposed to finish the work there by day labour, but after spending a good deal of money you have three feet of water at high tide and at low tide you can walk one hundred yards on dry sand. Do you propose to leave it in that condition?

In the harbour there is ten feet of water, and it does not make any difference what depth there is at the breakwater. The hon. gentleman is confounding a breakwater with a wharf.

When you compare the coast line of Nova Scotia with the coast line of Prince Edward Island the difference is not very much, but yet you have sixty-six items for Nova Scotia and only nine for Prince Edward Island. I call the minister's attention to the wharf at Vernon. A few years ago the bridge that spans the Vernon river was used for shipping purposes. That bridge has been replaced by a steel bridge and I ask the minister if there will be anything in the Supplementary esti-Mr. PUGSLEY.
