Mr. DUNNING:

If the cost for the three prairie provinces is as estimated, $500,000 for the quinquennial census, the increase in each of the three prairie provinces multiplied by 80 cents per head for each of the years involved would be the aggregate sum for comparison. I cannot tell my hon. friend what that would be, but offhand one would say it would amount to more than $500,000 in the course of five years.
