Mr. KING (Kootenay):

That may be.
The effect of the second amendment is to give fuller power to the commission. The previous treaty limited the power of the commission in connection with the removal of an obstruction. It has been thought wise in the interval to amend the treaty so that the commission may have authority in our waters to remove obstructions if they see fit. We have also arranged under the new treaty that the commission may acquire lands for the purpose of developing the fisheries :n our territory.
