This is for surveys and inspection of railways. Every railway to which is granted a charter and a subsidy given has to be inspected and for this purpose we have to send out engineers all over the country. The usual vote has been $18,000 per annum. Last year up to the 31st of January, 1905, we expended about $7,650 on the inspection of railways. ,
