The American

Perforated Wrapper Pulp and Power Company. They are constructing their plant now.

222i

The industry will be an active one, and I am satisfied the arrangement here is in the interests of the district. It will mean the employment of a great many men and a large development in the pulp industry at that point.

Mr. KING (Kootenay):

This is to extend the wharf at Windsor. It is strongly recommended by the engineer, by the board of trade, and the member. The district engineer reports that this work is necessary on account of the increased shipping at this port. The shipping consists of five million feet of lumber and two hundred thousand tons of gypsum. For the past season 82 vessels, carrying 194,600 tons of gypsum cleared at the custom house, also a number of vessels with cargoes of lumber for the American market, consisting of five and a half million feet of lumber, one million staves, and six and a half million laths. A great deal of gypsum is shipped over privately-owned wharves.

Are there any dues

charged? This would hardly be classed as a local or shipping port.
