It was not given by the municipality ?
What was the cost of the site ?
One thousand dollars, which has been paid.
Prom whom was it purchased ?
Prom the Gibson Company who are the sole owners of the whole town.
The whole town ? The MINISTER OP PUBLIC WORKS. Nobody can buy a piece of land outside of them.
This is a donation to the Gibson Company, and if they owned the whole town they will necessarily own the post office.
It was not a donation.
The minister has practically said so.
It is a donation to public opinion.
It was hardly worth while to go to the form of conveying the land to the Crown. You might just as well have built the post office and donated it to the Gibsons.
What is the population of that town ?
The population is 2,000 souls now.
What is the postal revenue of the town of Marysville ?
In 1890-it will be more now because we have made a great deal of progress during those two years-the postal revenue was 81,398.92.
Was that the gross revenue ?
With reference to this building in Mr. Gibson's county, I would like to ask if there has been any conveyance of the site upon which it stands ?
