Mr. MEIGHEN:

Inasmuch as the Postmas: er General never had a son, I do not think it is likely that this man was his son. He may be a son of the member for the riding.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I must enter a protest

against this habit of bringing down supplementary estimates in batches-all sorts of works here, there and everywhere. There is no use in having these items in the supple-mentaries. The only object the government had was to spring the news gently, get the country to think there was not very much being voted, and then bring batches in at the last.

Mr. HAMMELL:

I will tell the hen.

gentleman the reason why this item was not put in the main estimates. Honey Harbour is quite an important place on the Georgian bay, and until the present season the people had been served at a private wharf. During the past winter the owner of this wharf notified the people that they could no longer use it. There are about 2,500 people to be served by this wharf, and there is no other wharf in this locality.
