I know that we make a grant yearly for the schools in the Yukon, and it is never questioned ; but I believe that any legislation we pass there has to be sanctioned by the federal government.

Construction of roads, bridle paths and other necessary works in connection with the Yoho park reserve and immediate vicinity, $12,000.

Mr. THOMPSON.

We have separate schools ; the Roman Catholics have a school of their own and there is also a public school both of which are supported by the government grant. The public school is composed of several departments and the teachers for that school are imported from ail over the Dominion, but mostly from the west. The principal or superintendent of our schools is from the Territories. The Roman Catholic school is taught by the Sisters. but all the teachers there have to have a normal school certificate whether in the Roman Catholic school or in the public school. The separate school is in a separate building and is supported as I say from the public fund.
