Mr. FRASER.

I agree with what the hon. member for King's, N. B. (Mr. Fowler) has said that voting is a privilege or duty. But who is to be the supreme judge of the exercise of that privilege or duty-is it the parliament or the individual ?

Mr. FRASER.

Not at all. A time comes in parliament on one side or the other when a man simply says : I will abstain

from voting. I cannot vote against my party, but the fact that I disagree with my party in regard to the view which has been enunciated by it does not make it necessary that I shall sever my connection with my party.

Mr. FRASER.

I may say iu reference to the vote for Nova Scotia generally that these works are certainly required in the public interest. A wharf for example may be required' in a fishing village. The highway runs parallel to the coast and between it and the shore there may be small cultivated pieces of land. The wharf is located at the place where it will best suit the people of the district. There may, however, be no road running down to it and it may be necessary to build a road from the highway to the wharf which may be some little distance.
