Mr. CAMPBELL:

The original argument for the Hudson hay route was that it would facilitate transportation overseas. But since the road has been under construction, it has been shown that the natural resources, not only in the district, but in the bay itself, are such as would' fully warrant the construction of the railway, simply for the purpose of developing those resources by opening up the country, and connecting with the bay itself if the other questions were left out of consideration altogether. Thus, instead of one argument, we have now three arguments for constructing and completing that route at the earliest possible date.
