Mr. TUSTIN:

I notice there is $2,274 for temporary assistance. The men on the Burlington bridge are made permanent. Why should these men at Kingtson be temporary?

Mr. CARDIN:

I am informed that these men are not particularly looking after the bridge but rather are looking after the piece of land there.

Mr. TUSTIN:

I should like to know the duties of these men. Surely the government does not keep two men to look after that land on La Salle causeway. There is no land there to speak of.

Is there a wharf, or some part of the causeway used for landing of boats? I have noticed them tied up there.

I will undertake to supply that information on some other occasion when dealing with the estimates. There is still a good deal to* be disposed of and I will supply that information, if the hon. member does not object to passing this item.

Mr. CARDIN:

This is required to provide for the reconstruction of the cribwork reinforcing block, 210 feet by 20 feet located on the harbour side of the breakwater. Attention is directed to the necessity of this work by district engineer Cox, who reports that the section of work to be rebuilt is badly damaged by action of the teredo, and in its present weakened condition is liable to be washed away at any time.

Mr. CARDIN:

This is required to provide for encasing the outer end of the public wharf with steel sheet piling, placing filling between the existing cribwork and proposed piling and laying a reinforced concrete deck four inches thick. Attention is directed to the necessity of the proposed work by the district engineer, who reports that this structure is in a bad condition owing to the ravages of sea worms. He reports also that pile

work will not be as suitable as sheet steel piling, which will withstand to. a greater degree the ice shoves at this place and will also better support the Malagash salt company's conveyer and the structure they intend to erect to house machinery of considerable weight.
