Mr. LOGAN.

If we were to judge by the tone of the remarks of the hon. gentleman (Mr. Sproule) one would hardly imagine that fifteen years ago, the hon. gentleman took an entirely different position In this House, from that which he advocates so strenuously to-day. Fifteen years ago, it was proposed to spend four million dollars of the public money to buildi a road from1 Harvey to Salisbury or Moncton, and a resolution was then' moved setting forth that no surveys had been made, that nothing was known of the country through which it was proposed to build the railway ; that an engineer had never traversed that territory, and that consequently it was premature to saddle the country with the expenditure for that line. When that resolution was moved, the hon. member for East Grey (Mr. Sproule) stood up and voted against it.
