Mr. THOMAS CHISHOLM.

As this is the 40th anniversary of the death of Thomas D'Arcy McGee, I would like to know what steps the government are likely to take in regard to the fulfilment of a promise made by the hon. Minister of Finance (Mr. Fielding) on the 25th April last year in respect to the erection of a monument to his memory?

Mr. CHISHOLM.

What we object to is that these men are breaking the law, which is that they must take tenders if the amount is over $5,000. They are breaking the law by doing such work by day's work, and they are using that day's work to make votes; that is the sum and substance of the whole thing ; and after the announcement made by the minister to-day, we understand why they are breaking the law. It the law makers are to be law breakers, what is the country coming to ?

Mr. CHISHOLM.

It seems to me that if by auy means any particular company should get possession of all the water-power in the neighbourhood of this city, that company would have a monopoly that could not be competed against. Nothing would be left then but steam-power, and if the city of Ottawa or the government were to offer opposition to such a company the cost of the steam-power as compared with the water-power would effectually prevent them. It would seem that the Ottawa Electric Company can, if they so wish, raise their rates from .36 per ampere hour to .52 per ampere hour, and if they did increase them to the maximum it would mean that the government would have to pay about $40,600 a year more for its lighting. In view of this the representatives of the people here have a very considerable interest in this matter. I would like to know whether or not it is possible that this company can secure all the water-powers in the vicinity, because if so, they can produce electricity at one-third the cost of its production by steam and there would be very little chance for any competition.
