This is called the Ferry wharf?

No, not this breakwater. This leads from a point out to the island, and it is to be a new work.

Is this to replace the old breakwater the minister spoke of as being composed of mill reluse?

Mr. PUGSLEY.

It will belong to the public. The title will be in the Crown. It was under the control of the Minister of Marine and Fisheries. But, of course, that will be looked into carefully to see that the title is in the Crown. The Department of Marine, I believe, own the island. They have taken it under expropriation. I think this would be the foreshore extending out from the shore of the river to the island, but, of course, we will look into that carefully before expending the money.

And the intention of this work is to connect that island with the mainland?

That extends from the property of the Dalhousie Lumber Company to Moffatt's Island, which has been purchased by the government?

Does the minister know how much the island cost the Marine Department?

I do not, but I understand the amount was not large.

Mr. CROCKET.

The reason I ask the minister about this is that there is an impression that a large amount of the work that has been done by the Department of Public Works at Dalhousie has been for the benefit of the Dalhousie Lumber Company.

Mr. PUGSLEY. Who entertains that

impression?

That is the general impression prevalent at Dalhousie.

Mr. PUGSLEY. That surprises me

greatly.

Most of the dredging which was done at Dalhousie last year was done along the wharf frontage of the Dalhousie Lumber Company. I wa3 informed that the Minister of Public Works is a stock holder of the Dalhousie Lumber Company. Perhaps the minister will deny that?

Mr. PUGSLEY. Why does the hon.

gentleman think that the minister would deny it?
