Mr. ROCHE:

I had the privilege of'

being in Dawson city a year ago last summer, and was taken through this building by the officials. It was undoubtedly in a very dangerous condition. The floor had sunk very considerably, and the partitions had drawn away from the ceiling. It was impressed upon me how necessary it was to have this vault rebuilt. I know nothing

whatever as to the expenditure, but most assuredly the building was in a very dangerous condition,

Item stands.

Public buildings-rents, repairs, furniture, heating, etc., $324,000.

Mr. ROCHE:

The difference made by the amendment ie this: in our paragraph (a) of section 4, we have the following arrangements for the close season: moose, caribou, deer, mountain sheep and mountain goats between the 1st day of April and the 15th day of July and between the 1st day of October and the 1st day of December. The Senate have amended that so that the close season is:

Moose, deer, and mountain goat between the 1st day of April and the 1st day of September.

That is, they are extending the time from the 15th of July to the 1st of September. As regards caribou and mountain sheep, they are adding to the close season already provided for in the Bill, the period from the 1st of April to the 1st of August.

Amendments concurred in.
