This is a revote of the mileage of the road for that district, but it is not a revote to tlie same company. Whatever my hon. friend may

suspect in other cases, he w ould be wrong in this case, because I happen to know that the old company lias no connection with the new one. This is a new company and a different name ; I do not think they even received the old charter. I think the one died and the other has come up as an entirely new venture.
