Mr. STEWART (Edmonton):

I am quite prepared to answer. No application has been received for the construction of a mill at Selkirk. We have had an application from the Backus interests for territory in Manitoba for the construction of a mill in the vicinity of Winnipeg; but as that application was based on stumpage dues for all territory north of township 46 in Manitoba and only an offer of twenty cents of a bonus south of the boundary, we did not give it favourable consideration.
