Mr. PERLEY:

As I have explained, we are putting on a smaller boat. I am sorry I have not got its itinerary, but my hon. friend can get it in the department. This smaller boat will make trips also from Pictou.

Mr. CHISHOLM:

I am not complaining of the smaller boat service. I think it is proper, but I do think that once a fortnight is cutting out that shore pretty badly where they have no railway communication. With the increasing revenues of the Government there is no reason why there should not be a boat calling at Arisaig, Cape George, and Morristown once a week. .

Mr. PERLEY :

We had much trouble arranging this service and thought we could meet the requirements by reducing the number of trips of the large boat and putting on an additional small boat.

Mr. CHISHOLM:

It may be that the

manner in which these harbours were neglected during the last two years has impressed the Government with the difficulty of calling as regularly as the needs of the people require and I suppose that is why this smaller service has been put on. I hope the Government will see that these harbours are dredged and that the boat will be able to call at them regularly.

Steam service between Pictou and Montague and between Charlottetown and Montague, calling at Murray Harbour and Georgetown, $6,900.

Mr. PERLEY:

This service has been altered a little and the description is not correct. I move that the words ' and between Charlottetown and Montague ' be struck out.
