Mr. SHAW:

I would like to concur in

the suggestion of my hon. friend. The item is a large and important one, and merits much more consideration than we can give it at this hour of the night. I would suggest to the minister that the item stand.

Mr. SPENCER:

In reference to the item of $1,000 "grant to Alpine Club of Canada"- I should1 like to know why this grant is made, and what the government get out of it?

Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil):

The Alpine Club is regarded as a very important organization, and I think perhaps the government gets full value for the grant through the advertising received. The club's report of its annual outings and what occurs at its camps, with the pictures of the scenic beauties in which the camps are located, and the accounts

of the club's mountain climbing, is now distributed in most of the countries from which we get tourist traffic. Throughout the United States and Great Britain you will find copies of the report which is issued annually, and I am bound to think that the thousand dollars brings very fair results in that way.
