About how much was
spent last year, and what was the nature of the work carried on in the province of New Brunswick? I understand the department has a small laboratory at Fredericton. Dr. Tothill is in charge of that. I should like to know the nature of the work done last year. Dr. Tothill is a very excellent official, and there is a very grave danger of losing his services to our friends to the south, unless he is properly remunerated.
