Mr. A. K. MACLEAN:
I cannot undertake to give the exact information which my hon. friend requires, but I promise to do so on the second reading of the Bill. The maturities in New York are:
July 10, 1918 $ 2,700,000
July 10, 1918 3,000,000
-September 1, 1918 10,000,000
January 10, 1919 1,250,000'
June 12, 1919 2,190,000
The New York maturities were sold by the brokerage firm of William A. Keed, New York. On August 12, there is maturing in London notes of the Canadian Northern railway to the amount of $9,733,333, secured by .collateral. In respect of the London maturities I think they can be renewed at full, providing a higher rate of interest is paid. I am hopeful that the maturities in New York may be renewed by a very small principal payment.
