Mr. D. D. McKENZIE.

I see by the estimates that the postmaster is allowed $65 for rent and fuel, but of course it is notorious that the accommodation is not satisfactory and that there has been an urgent cry for increased accommodation for some time. The hon. minister gave the population of the town of Sydney Mines as 3,000, but I may say that it is one of the boom towns of he province of Nova Scotia and that its population to-day is easily over

5,000. The amount of money orders handled there last year was $64,000, which shows that there was considerable business done.

It is the home of the Nova Scotia Steel and Coal Co. The coal shipments from that port have trebled within the last few years. Tailing it all in all, it is a very important town, and not to be measured by the amount of customs revenue collected, because there is no customs house there at all.

Mx-. SAM. HUGHES. Has the minister ever compared the municipal assessment of any of these sites with the price the government is paying ?

*Mr. D. D McKENZIE.

There is no customs house at Sydney Mines ; it is an out-port of North Sydney. The post office is a rented building.
