?

The MINISTER OF FINANCE.

The resolutions 19 and 03 should be read together.
These are two roads which are now being *consolidated into one company. The one starts from Dartmouth, on Halifax harbour, traverses the valley of the Musquodoboit river through the county of Halifax, thence into the county of Guysborough and, passing a point called Melrose, goes to Guysborough and Mulgrave. Then there is a crossroad which leaves the town of New Glasgow and crosses this other railway at Melrose and goes on to Country Harbour. This enterprise serves the counties of Halifax, Guysborough and Pictou and runs close to Antigonish, if it does not touch it. It covers a large portion [DOT]of the eastern section of Nova Scotia, which is at present without railway communication.
