Mr. INGRAM.

Just the same as the Canada Southern, which is a connecting link between the Michigan Central and the New York Central, a railway in Canada owned and controlled by American capital. It has never received a dollar of money from this government. Therefore, it is in the same position as the road we are now discussing in the matter of directors. I simply wish to point out that if the government have no policy on this question, and if a railway built by American capital is to be relieved from this condition, then it will be a precedent for treating other railways in the same way.
