To pay expenses connected with the moving of residences at Frank, Alta. (Revote), $5,000.
The sum of $30,000 was voted in the Supplementary Estimates for the fiscal year 1912-13 for this service, but as only a very small amount had been spent in that year, part of that sum was revoted in the fiscal years 1913-14, 1914-15 and 1915-16. No expenditures in this connection were incurred during 1916-17, but the secretary-treasurer of the town of Frank, Mr. T. Wilson, informed the department that the sum of $5,000 will probably be needed during the fiscal year 191718, and the same is accordingly asked as a revote. The sum of $20,150.96 has been paid up to this date, so that there is still a balance of $9,849.04 to be expended out of the amount originally voted.
in the spring of 1903 a landslide from Turtle mountain took place entailing the lose of seventy lives of people in .the town of Frank, Alberta, together with the destruction of a large amount of property. According to recent observations, the danger of another landslide was found to be still more threatening, and it was decided to move the buildings from their present location to a safer site. A statement of the amounts of the contracts for moving the buildings has been prepared by Mr. Sterling who is looking after the interests of the provincial government, and the total cost will be $69,220, to be borne as follows:
By the Dominion Government .... $30,000 By the Provincial Government .... 20,000
By the owners 19,220
This is the revote of the balance of the amount to be expended by the Dominion Government.
