Mr. CARVELL:

My hon. friend from
Ontario (Mr. Smith) says that the buildings were there very largely before the railways were built. In many oases, especially if the farmer is looking after his interests, in estimating compensation for the land taken the increased insurance whiidh he must pay is part of the dam-ages and the arbitration courts allow very large amounts for that increased insurance; so that the railway company -before hand has paid in the money with which to carry -that insurance.

Topic:   QUESTIONS.
Subtopic:   RAILWAY ACT AMENDMENT.
