Mr. BOYD.

One of the great difficulties when you give concessions of this kind is that they interfere with settlers who have been in the habit of catching fish and selling it in the highest market. The result of this concession being given to party-I do not know what to call them ; my hon. friend says ' hacks,' but I will not say that-is that it gives them the right to say to these people who are selling their fish at 6 cents a pound, that they shall sell them at whatever the lessees see fit to offer them-about 2 cents a pound. I also asked for the lease that was given to Mr. Merritt, another party man, of fishing rights on Lake Winnipegosis. This is a great interference with settlement in that part of the country. What are these concessions going to be worth in twenty-one years from to-day ? No man can estimate their worth when railways are built through that country, as they will be built in a few years. Yet the hon. minister grants these "concessions for a paltry sum of $10 a yrear.
