Mr. HYMAN.

There is one new item there:

Pitt river

substitution of a 230-foot through truss for original 132-foot truss of draw-span on C.P.R. bridge, inclusive of accessory works, $55,085.

He goes on to say :

The Canadian Pacific Railway built a bridge across the river there a number of years ago. They got the permission of the Department of Public Works to build this bridge. The Canadian Pacific Railway are renewing the bridge; they were building a new bridge last year, and it was then found necessary in the interests of navigation to widen the span. We asked them to do so, and they took the ground that having received permission to build according to their original plans, the government should pay for any widening of the spans the Justice Department gave its decision that under the circumstances the government should be liable. Therefore, we were in the position of having either to accept the old span or to pay our share of the cost. This is the amount found by the engineers to be due to the Canadian Pacific Railway by the government.

I ask and urge that what the government did in the case of the Pitt River bridge in British Columbia, in 1906; they should do at the present time in the case of the Sis-siboo or Weymouth bridge, and in any case a span of sixty feet should be required to be built. Some time ago, I had the privilege of discussing this matter with the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Pugs-ley), and he told me that it would receive most careful consideration. I merely present these facts to-day in order that the claims of that district may be fully recognized and not overlooked. I trust the application of the people of Weymouth for a sixty foot draw may meet the favourable consideration of the Department of Public Works and the government, and that, if the government is going to pay any part of this and not require the railway to bear all the cost, provision will be made in the estimates during the present session.

Mr. HYMAN.

Yes. Plans and specifications are now in preparation. I have not the details of the principal requirements, but I think the cost of the building would be in the neighbourhood of $50,000. .

Mr. HYMAN.

These are technical officers and the object is to be able to pay them a greater sum' than the minimum allowed by the Civil Service Act.

Well that would be a reason. They could be employed as technical officers under the Civil Service Act, but I do not know whether they could be paid a larger salary. The next item was :

Temporary clerical and other assistance, inclusive of services of all persons required who were first employed after July 1, 1882, notwithstanding anything in the Civil Service Act, $45,000.
