Mr. EMMERSON.

This is subsidized by the provincial government. I am not aware that the mind of the hon. gentleman from Bothwell (Mr. Clancy) was at all disturbed with respect to similar votes in the first five or six resolutions, and we had no reason to think that it would be any more disturbed with respect to this or any other item for the province of New Brunswick than it was with respect to the items for Ontario. Now, this railway company is a recognized, institution. The demands of the district are certainly very strong. Of course, in the summer they can get along nicely with that great highway, the St. John river; but when the river is frozen over they have no communication with the outside world except with the old fashioned vehicles.
