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.

Mr. BURROWS.

It is my privilege as a member of this House to watch any legislation. It is a difficult thing to pass legislation affecting the rights of the limit owner in a case of this kind. According to this motion which the hon. minister introduces, hereafter the limit men will have no right to cut cord wood unless he gets permission, but he is going to be made responsible for cutting by any one else. As a lumberman I would prefer the government to keep the responsibility within their own hands rather than place it on my shoulders. However that is a matter for the House,

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.

I give notice that I will move that the following clause be added to section 27:

That section 27 be amended by adding after the words * twenty-four ' in the 26th line thereof, the following:

And townships 18 to 44, both inclusive, between the first meridian on the east to Lakes Manitoba and Lake Winnipegosis on the west.

This includes the area immediately west of the area described by the hon. member for Selkirk (Mr. S. J. Jackson.)

Townships 16 to 34, ranges 9 to 16, both inclusive; townships 23 to 44, both inclusive, from ranges 17 to 24, both inclusive, and townships 29 to 44 in ranges 25 to 29, both inclusive.

In this territory the land is all taken by the railway company, and any land that is left in any of those townships would not be available so far as this motion is concerned, because, wherever the railway company did take land, they took more than eight sections; therefore whatever land is left in those townships would not be available for the purpose of this motion.

Mr. BURROWS.

As the law stands at the present time, the title in all the timber on the berth is vested in the limit holder, subject to any regulation made by the government. The limit holder may cut cordwood, subject to whatever limitations the department impose upon him. This Bill continues that provision with the exception that it does not vest the complete ownership in the limit holder, does it?
