Mr. GUTHRIE.

I think it is hardly fair to put it as the hon. member for South Simcoe (Mr. Lennox) has put it, that these water-powers are being grabbed up by private companies. This company, under the Bill which has been passed by the Railway Committee, obtains no power, or right, title or interest in any water-power whatever. It is merely given the right as a corporation to apply for water-the same right which any individual now has.
