Hon. Mr. REID:

This is a claim for damages caused by fire, and is made by a Mr. MacMillan. The claim has not yet been paid. The file shows that correspondence was had up to May 7, of this year. The management take the ground that the evidence is not sufficient to justify their paying the claim. They say that the evidence is only circumstantial, and their solicitor, so far, has not felt that they would be justified in settling the claim. However, I do not feel that I should say more than that at the present time.

Hon. Mr. REID:

Five hundred miles of railway track was lifted, of which three hundred came from the Transcontinental, between Moncton and Winnipeg, and two hundred from the Grand Trunk Pacific in the mountain section. These rails were shipped to France, and the British Government has paid all out-of-pocket expenses. The balance due is under investigation; we have not yet received settlement.

Hon. Mr. REID:

I am sorry there is

nothing in the estimates for that this year. I should have liked to be able to put it in for the hon. member, but I think he will have to leave that over until next session.
