Mr. GRAHAM.

It was ready for traffic as I have outlined, and traffic could have been carried over that line for the entire season by the' contractors had the Grand Trunk Pacific desired to make such an arrangement with them. It could be carried by the Canadian Northern bridge over the Red river, connecting with that Dundee branch and running through. The Grand Trunk Pacific, as I understand it, did not care to make that arrangement with the contractors, but traffic could have been carried as contractors do carry on transportation along many lines before they hand their work over as complete.
