Mr. BARBER:

I certainly agree with the

Minister of Justice that the housing of the supreme court has been a disgrace. But the question I have raised about the cost was stated by one of his own supporters in the committee. The difference in the cost of the two buildings is one which concerns the public of this country.

Mr. BARBER:

On some of the United States lines they have extra planes for use during the busy season. Sometimes coming through from Salt Lake City to Chicago I notice two or three planes, one following the other. They regulate it according to the traffic, they tell me. Has the minister in view the use of extra machines to take care of the increased traffic during the busy season?

Mr. BARBER:

At Mission City, near St. Mary's school, there are two dentists, and also up in the district near Coqualeetza there are several. But the work has been done, I understand, by Doctor King, who travels from Vancouver to Lytton. So that the local dentists throughout the district are not getting the work except in cases of emergency, when they do it in many cases for nothing.
