Mr. LUCHKOVICH:

In the Vegreville riding we have a park known as Elk Island park, which is so beautiful that if I tried to describe it adequately, words would wholly fail me. Therefore I do not wish to spoil the picture by any word description of my own, but I suggest to the minister that when he finally decides to issue circulars, or whatever he wishes to do in regard to this matter, he let the tourists who visit that part of the country know that a few miles south of Lamont there is a park called Elk Island park. In this circular I hope he will picture this park in larger capital letters than any other parks that have been mentioned here to-day.

Mr. LUOHKOVICH:

I do not wish to derogate from the glory of the former Postmaster General. I notice he has a beautiful rose in the lapel of his coat and I think all that is needed now is a laurel wreath to deck his brow. All I wish to do at present is to find out what is the practice of the department in the establishment of new post offices. In certain districts in the west there are local-

ities very much in need of new post offices. What are the factors that enter into the establishment of new offices? How many miles apart must they be? What estimated revenue and what number of people in the locality are requisite to the establishment of a post office? What is the factor as to operating cost, and outside of all the factors I have mentioned are there any mitigating circumstances that might justify the department in establishing a post office in order to give service to people who find it very hard to have to go twenty or thirty miles to the nearest post office already established?

Mr. LUCHKOVICH:

I should like to

ask a question in connection with this matter of cars. When I was in Chicago last Easter I saw a Chrysler car advertised for $495. When I came back to Ottawa I saw the same type of Chrysler car selling for something around $900. Will the minister explain che reason for that difference in price? What elements enter into the price of the car in Canada? If that is the same car I saw here in Ottawa I should like to buy it in the United States and bring it here, because I would save about $200 or $300 by doing so.
