Mr. KING (Kootenay):

The report says

that the proposed work is general repairs to wharf, consisting of the renewal of stringers fenders, piling and so on, and the raising of the outer end of the wharf. The District Engineer reports:

This wharf is used by the community for landing coal and wood, and for shipping farm produce and apples. One cargo of pulp, 775 tons, was shipped from here during 1924. If this wharf is repaired, the pulp company expect to ship large quantities of pulp next year.

Mr. ROBINSON:

I do not know that I

can give the name of the pulp company, but they are looking for a good place to ship from. This wharf has not been used, perhaps, for two or three years and the top is in a state of disrepair; teams cannot be driven over it. Last year shipments of pulp commenced over the wharf, and the complaint was made that the structure was in such a condition that teams could not be placed on it. The engineer estimates that $2,100 will put the wharf in a state of repair.

Mr. ROBINSON:

I think it must go to

the United States. It is partially manufactured and shipped in bales. There is a pulp mill back of Wolfville and Gaspereau where they manufacture up to a certain stage, and in that condition the commodity is shipped away.

Mr. KING (Kootenay):

It says:

This landing block is located immediately inside the breakwater and is a public convenience to the fishermen. I am convinced that our maintaining this landing means increased accommodation and naturally increased earnings to these men. There are twenty motor boats carrying 30 to 40 fishermen who fish from this place. The annual value of the fisheries is about $55,000.
