Mr. BELAND.

If the hon. member (Mr. Ames) will allow me, the Federal Conservation Commission in the United States was created before the state commissions were created, and, as to>

the convention of governors, that was called a long time after the Federal Commission was created.

Mr. BELAND.

The steamer is large

enough to carry the produce of the farmers

in the spring. The upper end of the lake is seven miles from a railway station, while the lower end is only one mile distant from the railway, and as the roads from the upper end to the lower end are impassable in the spring it is necessary to have crafts on the lake to carry the dairy products to where they can be transferred to the railway. There is an extensive lumber trade on Lake St. Francis. These wharfs have been petitioned for by every farmer in the vicinity.

Mr. BELAND.

At present the steamers have to anchor in the lake as there is no wharf, and of course that is highly inconvenient. There is no strong current on the lake and the logs are towed by these small boats.

Mr. BELAND.

It is for two wharfs, one at the upper end and one at the lower end of the lake. Lake St. Francis is twenty-one miles long and is situated in the counties of Beauce, Megantic and Wolfe. There are three boats plying on the lake.
