When the arrangement was made with the city of Toronto, the papers in connection with them were laid on the table two or three years ago, it was stipulated on the part of the government that the old fort and the old burying ground should be preserved by the city, that is the condition on which the property is handed over to the city. It is to be used for park purposes exclusively.

Why do you not reserve a part for the purpose of the public buildings that you intend to put up in Toronto?

Sir FREDERICK BORDEN.

The city of Toronto was anxious to have this land. They have had seventy-five acres of it for many years, and they had a lease before that, and had practically become the users ; so they thought it desirable that they should become the owners. We have got a fairly good price for it and we have purchased, or the city has purchased for us, a farm at the very low rate of $20,000 and that farm is to be transferred to the government as soon as this legislation goes through, and the balance of the money will be used for the purpose of constructing buildings for the military school at Toronto.

We have stipulated with the city that the fort should be maintained and restored, and of course if the street cars were to go through it or injure it in any way that would not be an observance of the conditions. I think there was a further order in council with reference to this very matter which said that nothing of the kind, no railway of any kind could be carried through the Fort without the consent of the people of Toronto ; it must first be permitted by by-law of the city.

Bill reported, read the third time and passed.
