Mr. W. M. MARTIN.

If that is the correct interpretation of the Act, it should not be worded in that way, for I believe the South African volunteers have been given ample time to go on the land and perform the cultivation duties.

Mr. MARTIN. (Translation.).

Yes. It shall be situated on the corner of St. Catherine and Plessis. The owner of the land is Mr. Jeannotte, a good Tory. We could not buy other land without paying $45,000 or $50,000. The hon. member ought to know

the amount paid by the government when the land was bought for the post office on St. Catherine west.

Mr. MARTIN.

(Translation.) They are auxiliary branches established in shops. As I have said a moment ago, Mr. Filion, an apothecary, on Fullum street north, has made $93,000 in postal business last year and there are fifteen or twenty others doing the same thing.

If I have endeavoured to get that postal station, I say again, it is because the citizens were urging for it and not myself, because I was not in need of it.

Mr. MARTIN.

(Translation.) Mr. Chairman, for the benefit of my hon. friend I will tell him that the site of this postal station is on St. Catherine east. The amount paid for land is $33,000. It was bought from Mr. Jeannotte, a good Conservative.
