Mr. BRODEUR.

We have not in the department any information in regard to it. Just to please my hon. friend (Mr. Monk) we wrote to the harbour commissioners in Quebec asking them whether they could supply us with the information. We have not received that information from them so far. I am very sorry I cannot give any information to my hon. friend.

REPORTED EMIGRATION TO UNITED STATES.

CON

Mr. GEO. TAYLOR:

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. Is the government aware that Col Viu Sant, American Consul at Kingston, Ontario, has made the following report to his government:-

Kingston, November 18-(Special)-Col Van Sant, American Consul for this district, in a report to his government, states that this city during nine months ended September 30, has lost nearly 800 of its population through its citizens emigrating to the United States. He bases his calculations on the fact that during the nine months 110 invoices for emigrants effects were issued at Kingston and continues: As each settler's effects' certificate usually represents a family averaging four, the gain in population to the United States for the past nine months from this city and vicinity will reach 400. Add to this number moving to the States without household effects, and the loss to Kingston would be nearly double, or 800. This condition largely prevails in other towns and cities of eastern Ontario.

1. The government has no information on the subject, beyond the statement referred to, appearing in the public press.

2. Inquiry will be made as to the facts. I would like to add the contents of a

telegram which has been received from Kingston as follows:

Consul Van Sant says press statement that 800 people from Kingston have emigrated to United States this year is false.

INTEREST ON PRE-EMPTION PAYMENTS.

CON

Mr. LAKE:

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. Is the government calling upon all persons who hold receipts for pre-emption fees to pay interest at rate of 5 per cent on the amount payable for their pre-emption at the close of each year from the date of their receipt ?

2. Was specific notice given to applicants for pre-emption at the time they made their entries, or subsequently, that they would be called upou to pay interest at the expiration of every twelve months?

3. Does the government consider that the average entrant for a pre-emption is likely to he in a position to pay the annual interest of $24 per annum for the outset, and does it intend to insist upon such payment? If so, what means does it propose to take to enforce the payments?

Mr. OLIVER: (Minister of the Interior; Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs)

1. Yes.

2. No, it was not necessary to give such specific notice as the statute provides that interest shall be payable at the rate of five per cent per annum at the end of each year from the date of entry.

3. When an application is made for a pre-emption entry it must necessarily be presumed that the entrant will be in a position to carry out all the conditions prescribed by the statute in that behalf. His failure to do so renders his entry liable to cancellation.
