Mr. CROSBY.

Mr. CROSBY.

We passed an Act a session or two ago providing for the transfer of all these wharfs to the Marine and Fisheries Department, the idea being that wharfage was to be collected on them all. I do not want to insist on wharfage being collected on any wharf because the people derive the benefit from a free service, but I have been told that where wharfage is collected there is sometimes discrimination as between different persons using the wharf and when you have not uniformity in different places people residing in places where wharfage is collected are dissatisfied when they go to other places and find that wharfage is not collected. Whatever system is adopted it should be carried out uniformly and universally.

Mr. CROSBY.

I understand it is to be extended 28 feet long by 11 feet wide and 10 feet high. Is that 10 feet over the surface of the water?
