That is information that I would like to have. It is a portion of the St. John river in which the people of my constituency are very much interested inasmuch as the depth of water on the shoals governs the size of vessels that are able to get up to Fredericton, and we understand that these shoals have been filling up, and that navigation has been very considerably interfered with during the last year or two. I would like to know just what work was done under the contract let in 1908, how much was paid to the contractors under it, and if any work was - done during the past year.
I will be very glad to get it for the hon. gentleman, and furnish it to him at a convenient time, but I will not go down to my office to-night, and unlock the office to get it. I am not going to send the chief engineer, and I am not going, unless by the desire of this committee, to stay my estimates until it can be hunted up.
