Mr. McCURDY:

The engineers report that it is obvious that the present decayed

structure will not serve the traffic for very long, and the proposed reconstruction should not be postponed. The Wharf is used for the Oiseau, which operates between Pembroke and Des Joachims, a distance of 40 miles, making four return trips weekly during the season between May 1 and November 15. The Oiseau accommodates 5,700 passengers for the season and carries some 600 tons of freight. The wharf also accommodates a ferry boat, three alligators belong to the Upper Ottawa Improvement Company, and numerous launches. The $60,000 is required for urgent repairs and reconstruction work, the wharf having almost ceased to be of any use.

Yes. Temporary repairs must be made for this summer's traffic and reconstruction will probably be begun this autumn and carried on largely during the winter and into next year.

Mr. McCURDY:

The cost of the present repairs will approximate twelve to fifteen thousand dollars, and a part of the timbers which are being used for these repairs will be used again in the re-construction of the permanent wharf.
