Mr. KING (Kootenay):

The wharf is

under the control of the Department of Marine and Fisheries. They would appoint a wharfinger or somebody in control, and probably pay him a percentage of the receipts.

Mr. SPEAKMAN:

I have been trying to

find out. just what the policy is in regard to revenue. I understood at first a distinction was made between inland waters and ocean waters. Apparently also the nature of the traffic is a factor. In other words, no fees are charged where the traffic is local or such as fishing traffic. Does the real difference lie in the size and importance of the port, and is it only the larger and more important ports on salt water that are revenue-producing?

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

There are really very few of our ports that are revenue-producing, and those that do produce revenue do not count for very much when you take the expenditure into account.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

Outside of those larger ports there would be practically no revenue at all. I notice that last year it was costing us $10,000 to do this work. What is the reason for the increase? We started on something that would cost us $10,000, and now we have to spend another $14,000 because we spent $10,000 last year.

Mr. KING (Kootenay):

The vote last

year for $10,000 was for the purchase of property as follows: the Akins property for $6,500, the Curran property for $1,800, and the C. S. Smith wharf property for $3,000. These properties having been secured it is proposed to enlarge the structure.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

I notice that

we have the usual item here "Appropriations not required for 1925-26, $366,355." Perhaps we could get a statement showing what work has been finished so as to get an idea of the activities of the department in Nova Scotia for the year, and what work has been dropped. If it is a long list I should think the committee would like it taken as read and put on Hansard, and thus save the minister the trouble, of reading it.
