Sir WILFRID LAURIER.

May I ask the hon. Minister of Finance (Mr. White) if he will give me his attention for one moment ? I am thankful to him for the information which he has sent over to me with regard to the resolution on the Manitoba boundary. I would have expected that we should have also had a statement of the number of acres of swamp land which had been dedicated to Manitoba.
