Mr. CARROLL.

In years gone by it was done by day work. I would recommend the minister, if it is to be done in that way, to be careful as to who superintends the work. If he will get a report from the engineer, he will find that that is very important and requires some technical skill.

What is the intention of the minister with regard to this important work? Is it the intention to have an additional vote in the supplementaries?

Mr. SINCLAIR.

What is being done with regard to this? My recollection was that the contract was awarded last autumn but that afterwards the contractor was told not to proceed with the work. Does the minister intend to go on with the work? And what is the present state of progress with regard to it?

There is some dispute as to the site. Tenders have been received in answer to public advertisement. This wharf will be convenient both for Melford and for the country north and south.

Mr. MACLEAN (Halifax).

I would like to have this vote and the general vote for harbours and rivers stand, and I should be glad if the Minister of Public Works would not take them up until the hon. member for Cape Breton (Mr. McKenzie) and the hon. member for Yarmouth (Mr. Law) are in the House. .

I would remind the Minister of Customs that I asked for two returns some days ago which have not yet been brought down. One has

reference to the dismissal of Eugene Baldwin, Customs officer at Coaticooke, and another to the change in the regulations concerning the duty on lobster twine.

I think I laid that return about the lobster twine on the table. The other return has been delayed pending the receipt of another copy of the newspaper.
