Mr. WIGMORE:

What steps are being taken to trace the 25,000 cars mentioned by the minister as having been sent to the United States and lost track of? How many box cars have been ordered from the different firms? If 25,000 Canadian cars are in the United States, it would be good business to make a special effort to trace them.

Mr. WIGMORE:

Why is it necessary for the Government to purchase this large number of rails for a corporation like the Canadian Pacific? I can understand it being done in the case of the smaller corporations, but why should it be necessary for a corporation of the financial standing of the Canadian Pacific?

Mr. WIGMORE:

I do not think any

organization will be so effective in tracing

ears as the Railway Departmetn itself. I think it will be good business for the Railway Department to send men over the different lines in the States to locate these cars and send them back. What is everybody's business is nobody's business, and wiring to. the different railroads will not be very effective in my opinion.
