Mr. GRAHAM:

In order to do that my hon. friend will have to have a statute passed or an. item placed in the Estimates. These are the two things that my right hon. friend the leader of the Opposition has asked for; first, the dimensions of the Champlain Market station.

What my hon. friend has said with regard to the purchase of this line will appear in ' Hansard ' and the leader of the Opposition can see it in the morning.

Mr. REID:

As to an Act being necessary for the purchase of this line, Major Leonard, with whom I discussed it, claimed that it was really not a completed line and he had some idea that it could be legally taken over without legislation. Whether it can or can not be, there will not be any legislation introduced this session. But my hon. friend the member for South Renfrew can take it for granted that it is a settled fact that $175,000 is the amount agreed upon for that portion of the line, whatever the length may be, from the Transcontinental railway at, I think, Viaduct station, to St. Malo. I was present when the Minister of Railways and Canals agreed to pay it. There is no correspondence as far as I know, because it was all done verbally, and it was only yesterday that an understanding was arrived at as to the amount to be paid.

Mr. GRAHAM:

This was an extraordinary bargain made about 1911, and my hon. friend from Westmorland (Mr. Em-merson) wanted to say something about it. I suppose that upon some item in the Supplementary Estimates my hon. friend will be allowed to discuss that ?
