Mr. OLIVER:

I would liKe to draw the attention of the Premier - to an interview which appears in the Vancouver Province relating to a matter of considerable public importance. I will not read the whole of the interview, which is contained in a despatch from Washington to the Province. The purport of it is that Sec-

retary Franklin K. Lane, of the Department of the Interior of the United States, has been in communication with Premier McBride, and has also had a satisfactory conference with Premier Borden, of the Dominion Government, in regard to the construction of a railway from British Columbia through the Yukon to Alaska. That is a very large enterprise. If there is such a project- on foot, I am sure the House would be glad to be informed in regard to it.

Topic:   PROPOSED RAILWAY FROM BRITISH COLUMBIA TO ALASKA.
