Mr. LAURENCE.

I may say that I have no objection to the Bill standing over. The amended Bill now before the committee is not yet printed, and it is a little difficult to know exactly the proper place to insert the words that would remove the objection.

Any doubt about it can easily be removed, but it seems to me that it would stand in the same position as an additional mile that might be built by the Dominion Atlantic. The moment it is built it becomes a part of the Dominion Atlantic line. Surely there is no distinction between building a mile and buying a mile.
