Mr. KYTE:

I am sorry if I have conveyed any impression that the hon. member was criticizing the Maritime provinces more than any other. He did think however that there were special circumstances and conditions that may have called for larger expenditures in certain constituencies than were usual in other times and he intimated that they were for political purposes. Now, I have here a letter dated December 28, 1912, which I shall read to the committee:

Ottawa, December 28, 1912.

My dear Sir,

Your letter of the 24th instant addressed to the Minister of Public Works received, and, in accordance with your request, I am enclosing you herewith a list of the items which have been placed in the supplementary estimates for Antigonish county for 1913-14. -

Yours sincerely,

Georgs Buskard,

Minister's Secretary.

To Hon. E. L. Girroir, Senator,

Antigonish, N.S.

This gentleman was secretairy to the Minister of Public Works at '.hat time and that list of supplementary estimates for Antigonish amounted to $211,300, as much as the total vote provided in the estimates this afternoon for the province of New Brunswick.

Mr. KYTE:

My hon. friend from Fort

William and Rainy River criticized the estimates of the Minister of Public Works so far as they relate to the Maritime provinces. I think it is recognized that the Maritime provinces call for a larger expenditure in this respect than any of the other provinces.

May 29, 1925

Mr. KYTE:

There was a local by-election in Antigonish. The member representing the constituency in the local House had been appointed to the Senate and a by-election was to be held in the montih of January 1913; and in preparation for that provincial by-election the Minister of Public Works, through his secretary, sent out a statement to the effect that the supplementary estimates-not the main estimates mind you, but supplementary estimates-provided for that county amounting to $211,300. Antigonish county, in point of population, is one of the smallest counties of Nova Scotia, and one of these items alone was the following:

Georgeville-new wharf, $90,000.

But there is not a vessel owned at that place and no person could possibly use the wharf;

at any rate, there are not more than a dozen fishermen there.
