Mr. J. D. REID:
I think I gave a statement some time ago of the earnings of each part of the Canadian National Railway system, but if not, I can give the figures for this particular line when my Estimates are up. The loss is not very great to the Dominion Government. The 40 per cent does not come near paying the interest on
the bonds, but, of course, the provincial Government must stand that loss.
Subtopic: ST. JOHN AND QUEBEC RAILWAY.
