Mr. MORIN.

Well, it is a pretty poor explanation. They can strike the boundary line at Lake Pohenegamook or they can strike it westward about 200 miles. To what place do they intend to go? The minister does not know the country as well as I do. West of Lake Pohenegamook the whole country is wooded. There is no town, village or settlement. Why should they run the road to the boundary line?

Mr. MORIN.

I know the country through which this road is to go, and I am not able to understand what this vote means. This road starts from the ChaudiOre junction,

or Chaudigre curve, and will the minister say where it is going? It says ' to a point at or near the international boundary.'

Mr. MORIN.

That is a reply but not an answer. Mr. Costigan who got this charter knows all about the direction of the road and he wants this road to connect with a road at Connors. That road comes up the St. John river, then up the St. Francis river, then to Lake Pohenegamook and thence westward. The government has a road at Lake Pohenegamook in the Transcontinental, and what is the use of building another road from the lake to Quebec? The Quebec Central is building a road there also.

Mr. MORIN.

The location of this road is clearly wrong. It would be quite right to build a road from Lac Pohenegamook down to Connor's but there is no sense in building a road from ChaudiCre where you have the Grand Trunk Pacific, the Intercolonial and the Quebec Central. It is proposed to run from Chaudiere to the state of Maine but no point is mentioned. I do not wish to object to the road being built in the least but some explanation should be given.

Mr. MORIN.

Yes, but they belong to the lumber company and the lumber company uses its own wharf. There was $7,000 wasted on this wharf before, and I would like the minister to explain why he wants to waste $13,000 more now.
