Mr. HAZEN: (Minister of Marine and Fisheries; Minister of the Naval Service)

1. The Minister of Marine and Fisheries, on learning of the application of the trustees of the Sanitary District of Chicago, to be allowed to increase the quantity of water withdrawn from Lake Michigan through the Chicago Drainage Canal to ten thousand cubic feet per second, directed Mr. John Kennedy, Consulting Engineer of the Harbour Commission of Montreal, and Mr. W.

J. Stewart, C.E., Chief Hydrographer of the Department of the Naval Service, Ottawa, to proceed to Washington and watch on behalf of Canada, proceedings in that connection before the United States Secretary of War.

At the said hearing, the trustees of the Sanitary District of Chicago were present, the case in their behalf being presented by counsel.

Opposing the application, there appeared representatives of shipping interests from all over the Great Lakes; also representatives of various cities and harbours, including some from Chicago itself, and from as far east as Cleveland.

The Canadian representatives took no part in the proceedings, further than to ask for an adjournment of the hearing until the 27th March, 1912, a request that had already been made by the Right Honourable the Prime Minister of Canada through the British Ambassador at Washington. This request on behalf of Canada was readily granted.

In addition, the Minister of Marine and Fisheries has arranged for a conference of representatives of the shipping interests, to take plaice at Ottawa on the 5th March, with a view to discussing with him ways and means of presenting Canada's objection to this application, at the hearing arranged, for the above named date, at Washington.

2. The minister is aware that great damage would result to shipping if sufficient water were diverted to affect the lake levels.
