This has the merit of novelty. The contractor is the Grand Trunk Pacific. In the months of November, December, January, February and March there are not less than two round trips each month from Prince Rupert, British Columbia, calling at Port Simpson, Naas Bay, Stewart and various other places and back to Prince Rupert; and during the remaining seven months in the year not less than four round trips each month upon the same route.

Mr, PERLEY.

For more than 10 years. It was stopped the last two or three years as we could not get any company to take it at the price. The contractors are the Manchester liners. The steamers are the 'Manchester Shipper' and 'Manchester Trader' and 'Manchester Spinner.'

There are four ships, the ' King Edward,' ' the ' Resti-gouche,' the ' Aranmore ' and the ' Savoy.' This is the subsidy I was mentioning a moment ago. The people served under this subsidy have absolutely no communication with the outside world except by this line. They are strung along the north shore of the St. Lawrence below Tadousac and as far as Blanc Sablon on the shore of Labrador.
