Mr. PRICE.

If this building were erected for the accommodation of Chinese, Japanese, and Hindu immigrants I could quite understand it, but if it is simply for the 661

accommodation of white immigrants, who are so few in British Columbia, how can the government excuse such a waste of money? For instance, in the hospital of this institution there are 134 beds, while only 193 white immigrants landed in Victoria last year. How can the government justify the erection of such a building under the circumstances?
