Hon. JAMES SUTHERLAND.

The contractor for the mail service between Clarenceville and Lacolle railway station is not paid anything more than the amount for which he tendered for the service. This service was last up to tender in 1898, notices being issued on the 15th July, and tenders due to be opened on the 26th August. The service is daily each way over a route four miles in length, and the rate paid pi'ior to that period was $240 a year. The only tender received was from Mr. M. J. Bur wort at $313 a year. The department regarding this tender as too high, directed the inspector to see if a lower rate could possibly be obtained. The inspector after inquiry reported that no lower rate could be obtained, the tenderer explaining that he had to pay fifty cents per day, or $156.60 a year, for tolls. The inspector, also, stated that every effort had been made to secure offers for the service, since, besides posting up the notices in all public places, all those likely to tender were notified by him directly of the bidding ; but as the only tenderer was the late contractor, who enjoyed the confidence of the public, no person desired to bid against him. The inspector also reported that there was a railway in course of construction which would pass near Clarenceville and might affect the mail service, and lie recommended that instead of a regular contract a temporary agreement be made with Mr. Burwort at the rate of his tender, viz. : $313 a year, which was done. The service is still being carried on under the terms of that agreement.
