Mr. R. L. BORDEN.

What is wanted, in short, seems to be this. We have a statement of what the contractors have already received, and an estimate of what they will receive. Outside of that, some other things are necessary to complete the road, and to put it in running order before it can be handed over to the Grand Trunk Pacific Company. What is their estimated cost, outside of the contracts?

Mr. GRAHAM.

It may be a little difficult to get that information very promptly. For instance, take the Quebec terminals- my hon. friend knows that it is not decided yet where they are to be, and it is impossible to say what they will cost.

Of course, it would be idle to ask for an estimate of what is not definitely decided on; but, apart from that, the minister might give us_ an estimate, mentioning what is not included, but what must necessarily be provided. I would like the minister also to let us know when we meet again whether there is any change in his estimate of the cost of the Western Division.

Mr. GRAHAM.

The Prairie Section is practically finished at the figures already given, and there is no change in the estimate of the cost of the Mountain Section given to me by Mr. Schreiber.

Progress reported.

Mr. FIELDING moved the adjournment of the House.
