Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

Not only have we in the city of St. John very fine terminals, but the Government is spending enormous sums of money there in developing 'the port and in providing additional terminals.

We would say that we would he able to handle ait the ocean terminals in St. John and Halifax all the freight that is carried from one .part of Canada to the ports that I have mentioned.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

The Minister of Railways will understand that our people in the East feel that ocean freight gathered by the Grand Trunk Pacific in the West and other points should be shipped through Canadian ports, and that ocean freight destined for points on the Grand Trunk Pacific in the West should be received at Canadian ports.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

May I ask the

Minister of Railways a question? The answer to this question is one in which the people of the ports of Saint John and Halifax are personally and deeply interested. If the Minister of Railways is not prepared to give an answer this evening, I do not ask for one now; but when the Bill is under discussion, I should like a statement from the minister if he cannot give an answer now. My question is this: Is it proposed by the Government to utilize the ocean terminals of the Grand Trunk at Portland, Maine, in the shipping and receipt of ocean freight?

Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

I think that the position taken by the Solicitor General is absolutely correct. These official bonds are given to the officers of the court and the officers of the court, on default, by order of the court, will sue on the bonds for the moneys which, upon recovery, are paid to the credit of the estate. That is the practice in regard to official bonds of that description. We have very many cases of that kind and there has never been any difficulty in working it out in a practical way. It would not be necessary to add the clause suggested by the hon. member (Mr. Jacobs). It seems to be sufficiently stated in the clause in the Bill. The bond can be enforced by the officers of the court subject to the direction of the court.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

That is a very good provision, because recently a small company was incorporated in New Brunswick for some particular purpose-I do not know why; in other provinces small trust companies have been incorporated; therefore it would be necessary for the Governor in Council to be very particular before appointing trust companies as official trustees to see that they have proper assets and also authority under their charters to act as receivers or trustees.
