Mr. R. L. BORDEN.

Before that motion s put, I would call the Prime Minister's at-ention to the portion of the correspondence vhich has been brought down respecting lie proposed alterations in the contract be-ween the government and the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company. On page 3 of ;he correspondence, as printed, I find this paragraph with reference to one of the proposed alterations :
The terms upon which the Grand Trunk is o acquire the common stock of the Gran^ Trunk Pacific and the liability to he incurred by such

acquisition to be fully determined and made the subject of agreement.
I presume that some such agreement has been made. Would there be any objection to including it as part of the correspondence ?
Et. Hon. Sir WILFRID LAURIER *(Prime Minister). I have to inform my hon. friend that everything relating to this matter has been laid before the House, the letter of the president of the company, Sir Charles Rivers-Wilson, making certain requests, and the concessions made by the government.
