Mr. CROSBY.

It strikes me that whatever reason there may have been for giving the subsidy in the past there is no reason for giving it to-day. We are subsidizing a line to go to Annapolis and one to Halifax, two lines for the one character of trade. Then the Canadian Pacific railway has acquired this road, and I am satisfied that they will give as good a rate on fruit from Halifax, St. John or Annapolis as will be given by any steamship company or tramp steamer, and in addition to that they will give accommodation and storage for that fruit such as has not before been furnished.

Sir FREDERICK BORDEN- Then no one will ship by this line, and no subsidy will be paid.

It is only $1,000 a trip, and she carries 10,000 barrels, so that the farmers are saving $4,000 on each trip.

If the Prime Minister will let this stand over until to-morrow, I will be able to prove that there is nothing in the statement of rates, that the rates offered by other companies to take the freight of Halifax will be equal to the freight from Annapolis. Of course if it goes through I have nothing further to say.

Steam service between Baddeck, Grand Narrows and Iona, $5,825.
