I will give a case. A wharf was built at the public expense in the village of Portsmouth near Kingston. This was under my own eyes, and that wharf has been maintained at public expense. Last year there was a sum in the estimates for repair. The hon. member for Leeds (Mr. Taylor) said, in reply to me, that at the time that wharf was built there was no penitentiary dock. I found out since that he was altogether mistaken in that. There was a penitentiary dock, and the wharf I mentioned has no connection with the penitentiary at all. It was built at the Portsmouth landing. There is a bay between the penitentiary and this wharf, which is built on the opposite side of that little bay. There is a government wharf that has been maintained at the public expense. Then, you may call it a lecture, it was rather a sharp rebuke that I got from the hon. Minister of Public Works, but as he had the facts on his side, perhaps he was quite right in saying what he did, and as he said it to me. I believe the fact to be so, that there were under former governments expenditures of this kind on new docks and for the purchase of docks from private owners which were maintained at the public expense or built at the public expense, and which have to be maintained. I think this was a mistake and I think it is a mistake to continue it, but I think it is unfair to the hon. Minister of Public Works to try to make political capital out of this when we find in the estimates such as we have here such large appropriations into* which, it does not seem, any polities enter at all. Even in a place so Conservative as Toronto when they are receiving consideration at the hands of the government, the members for that city attack the minister and try to make political capital out of it. It seems to me that it is carrying politics too far.
