Mr. COCHRANE.

I understood from one of the gentlemen who was before the committee that these locating gentlemen who are such an expensive luxury got $2 a day from the government in cash, and that if a mail wanted one of them to show him the land so as to enable him to locate he would have to pay from $4 to $0 a day extra for a team. I' should think these gentlemen who are paid by the government should not be receiving that much from a poor man who goes out there to locate his home, and that he would not be called upon to pay for a team to go around the country. What benefit are these agents if they have to be paid every day for their travelling expenses ?

I should think that when the government paid them they would not be extorting money from people who employ them to assist them in locating land. Do* they have to have tips, too ?

Mr. COCHRANE.

There is another gentleman with his ' hear, hear.' I did not expect to see the hon. gentleman in the House; he said he would resign, but I knew that he would not be very resigning if he could get out of it.
