Mr. LEMIEUX.

Yes, except that, in the west, we make a special allowance of 15 per cent. We sometimes transfer clerks from the inspectors' offices in the older provinces, because experienced officers are needed for new districts in the west. At present in the west, they have very good staffs. Sometimes, a clerk desires to be transferred from the west to an eastern office, or vice versa. This accounts for these transfers. In the Edmonton division, R. C. Ferguson, senior second-class clerk, transferred from the inside service at $1,100. C. Watson, junior second-class clerk, transferred from Toronto post office at $950. That makes $2,050 for the Edmonton division. In the Vancouver division W. F. Tracey, senior third-class clerk, transferred from junior third-class clerk at $800. A. L. Reid, senior third-class clerk transferred from the railway at $860. a total of $8,010. These represent the salaries of the 11 additional clerks in the inspectors' branches.
