Mr. WADE.

That includes the bounty, and the people of Cape Breton are very grateful for that bounty, and I repeat that the giving of it was only what they deserved. They have given bounties to manufacturers, and were entitled to receive from the government some recognition, and they have received it. And in consequence of that bounty, this great industry has been built up in their midst, which has not only benefited Cape Breton and Nova Scotia but the whole Dominion, and is lifting the Dominion into the gaze of the world to-day ns thte possibly greatest steel and iron producer in the world.
And I say that the bounties which have been given to create this industry has been one of tlie wisest provisions ever made by any government of Canada.
