Mr. BAENAED.

Would not the fact that the Grand Trunk Pacific Eailway Company paid a considerable sum of money for this reversionary interest of the province of British Columbia in addition to giving them a 25 per cent interest in the townsite,, suggest to the minister that the legal advisers | of the Grand Trunk Pacific had come to the conclusion that the Grand Trunk Pacific had a pretty strong claim.

Mr. BAENAED.

Then would it not be advisable for the minister to take some part in this discussion that is going on before the courts at the present time? That might facilitate a settlement. .

Mr. BARNARD.

There must be some misunderstanding. The minister has read some communications between the two governments with respect to this matter. Would he bring down all the papers in connection with it, because the information I have is that there are communications later than those referred to by the minister Ifrom the provincial government to this government which probably would throw some light on this question. If the minister will bring them down we would be in a better position to understand the situation. It is a matter of great importance to the people of British Columbia; it is a question which I think all parties are anxious to settle.

Mr. BARNARD.

The minister has thrown out the suggestion that the government is anxious to sell these lands that were not required on the reserve. Does that apply to all the lands reserved for the Indians or only a portion of them?
