Mr. ELKIN:

Quite a number of hospitals in the seaport towns were supported to some extent by the Marine Department out of this fund-that is, certain beds were maintained in those hospitals for sick mariners. Many of the hospitals have complained that the per diem allowance for these beds is not sufficient. Last year we tried to get a further allowance on that account, for St. John, but it was just at the time that this transfer was being made. I then maintained that if there was a large fund which had been collected by way of mariners' dues at least the interest should be devoted to the payment of a larger per diem allowance in these hospitals in order to give the sailors better accommodation. In St. John the accommodation is not sufficient to take care of sick mariners who are there in the winter season. In fact, in a great many cases the people of St. John are unable to get into the public hospital. A larger wing or something of that sort should be built to take care of these sick mariners, and the same applies to the other ports in the Maritime Provinces where contributions to this fund are rather large. I should like to bring this matter to the attention of the Minister of Health (Mr. Calder), to whom this matter has now been transferred.

Mr. ELKIN:

May I ask the hon. member a question? If the wife had this evidence in her possession, as she must Have had during the trial, why did she not bring it before the Senate Committee?

Mr. ELKIN:

Unquestionably, the extension of this road from Centreville through should be made, and it has occurred to me several times that the minister might well consider the fact that he has had in previous Estimates quite heavy expenditures on the Canada Eastern bridge at Fredericton,

which it was intended to rebuild and strengthen in order that the heavy traffic off the Grand Trunk Pacific might be diverted from St. John. It is a question his department might well look into, whether it would not pay to make the extension immediately on that line to Andover and through Grand Falls and pick up that freight there, bringing it over the Valley railroad, rather than spend money on the Canada Eastern bridge, on which many thousands of dollars have been expended.

Mr. ELKIN:

The hon. member for Lunenburg is a shipping man. He has a knowledge of the Atlantic ring and the position that Canada and Canadian shippers found themselves in with regard to the transAtlantic trade. Will he say it is not good business for the Canadian Government to place themselves in the position of building and owning ships so that they can open up trade routes for the benefit of Canada and Canadian shipping?
