John Stanfield

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STANFIELD.

I do not propose to object t-o this item, but I am sorry that the Minister of Railways is out of the city, because I wish to call his attention to an accident that happened on the Intercolonial a few days ago at Folleigh, in which three men were killed-an engineer, a fireman and a brakesman. The engineer leaves a family of five small children, and the brakesman a family of seven small children. These families, I believe, are left almost destitute outside of a few dollars which they receive from the insurance fund. I would ask the Minister of Finance I to call the attention of the Minister of Railways to the matter, and see if he cannot put something in the supplementary estimates for these people.
