Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

We have a vote here for $5,500, so it looks as if it were playing with it to say it is under $5,000. It is all very well to say it is better to do it by day labour, but what is the concrete recommendation of the engineer? What are his grounds?

Mr. KING (Kootenay):

The price for the work is $4,500; wharf site and right of way

$300; road construction and contingencies $700; making a total of $5,500. The engineer recommends that the work can be done more efficiently and economically by day labour.

That is no

ground at all. He makes a recommendation, but on what grounds does he make it?

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

I do not know whether he has any grounds, or whether he thinks it is a good thing to have the handling of the money. I do not know whether he is doing it on grounds or on a whim. That is what I am trying to find out. If he has done it on grounds, those grounds should be shown.
