Mr. HACKETT.

I would like to ask the hon. minister (Hon. Mr. Fielding) if any arrangements have been made under which the newspapers of Prince Edward Island can come in under this Act ? We are situated in a peculiar manner. We are now in the hands of a monopoly, and telegraph news from across the Atlantic will not be of very much advantage to us on the island unless some arrangements are made whereby the daily newspapers shall be able to receive messages at the usual rates across the straits of Northumberland. I would like to ask the hon. minister if any arrangements are being carried out to that end ?
