Mr. J. D. REID:
The stock of the Canadian. Northern Railway Company has been vested in the Dominion Government in accordance with an Act of Parliament passed last session. The question as to the value of the stock taken over by the Dominion Government is now being determined by a Board of Arbitrators sitting at present in Toronto. The arbitrators, as I understand it, will complete their work some time soon, and afteT they have made their report the Dominion Government will take over the absolute control and operation of the railway. *
Subtopic: CONSIDERED IN COMMITTEE.
