Mr. BURROWS.

This takes away a right formerly enjoyed by the limit holder, and it imposes on the limit holder the obligation to pay the dues no matter who cuts the timber.

Mr. BURROWS.

As a matter of fact limits are generally granted in a locality where there are no settlers. There is one limit I bought from another party which is located close to settlement and the farmers for years have been cutting their wood supplies there. But in any district where there is dry timber the farmers generally get the dry timber for fuel and up to the present time this question has not arisen.

I would again point out to the member for Macdonald that I did not move this motion and I am not responsible for it at all.

Mr. BURROWS.

There are townships in which there has been no railway land taken whatever, townships of an inferior quality, where the settler would require to have more than a quarter-section to make a good farm.

On section 18-residence in vicinity.
