Hon. J. G. HAGGART (South Lanark).

I would like to call the attention of the act-

ing Minister of Railways (Hon. Mr. Fielding) to tFe necessity of furnishing the House either to-day or on Monday with all possible information that is in the department in reference to surveys that were made for a contemplated railway at the time when the Canadian Pacific was building, from Lake Temiscamingue north of the height of land, north of Lake Nepigon towards Lake Winnipeg. One of the surveys west of Lake Nepigon and to twenty-five or thirty miles north was made by a Mr. Bailey. The one on this side was by Mr. Secretan, and Mr. Gansby made another survey. I do not want the actual surveys, but the reports of the engineers as to the nature of the country would be very interesting and helpful in the debate on Tuesday next.
