Mr. MCLENNAN.

Mr. Chairman, with regard to the expenditures in Inverness county for these schools and for medical attendance, I beg to say that the sum of $150 has been set aside to pay for medical attendance. There are two Indian reserves in the county of Inverness. One of these physicians attend the Indians on each reserve, and $150, at my suggestion, has been divided between them. Hence it is that so many names appear as receiving money from this government for medical services in Inverness. The whole amount does not exceed $150. I do not know how it is in other counties, but that is what holds true in the county of Inverness. With regard to the schools, I can only say that the government, at my suggestion also, built a very fine school there at an expenditure of $700 or so, and I may say, as the hon. minister said in regard to the schools in Ontario, the public inspector visits the Indian school just as regularly, and is bound to do so, as he visits any other school in the county of Inverness. The teacher also must be licensed, holding a provincial license, as the gentleman in charge of the Indian school now does. Sometimes I regret that the young Indians in that school are making such progress that they are very greatly adding to my correspondence. While I am up here they write to me and make known their wants like ordinary mortals in that county.

Mr. MCLENNAN (Inverness).

I might explain something with regard to this locality. This is a small harbour formed by a long ledge of rock jutting out in the sea, and at a certain angle with the coast, there is a gap in this ledge which lets the action of the sea in on this small harbour. It is to fill in this gap with cement and stone that this small sum of money is required and the work is being carried on successfully.

Herring Cove Breakwater, $1,500.

May 20, 1901

Mr. MCLENNAN.

The hon. member for Halifax (Mr. Borden) has asked me what I know of this matter. The gentleman in question did apply to me to see what could be done re this matter, and I wrote to the department in his behalf. This gentleman sold these ties to the Boston and Nova Scotia Company, who in turn sold them to the Department of Railways. In answer to my letter the department replied that they had bought a certain number of ties from the Boston and Nova Scotia Company, at West Bay Road station, on the Intercolonial Railway, but the department could not say who originally owned the ties. Mr. McLellan sold these ties to the Boston and Nova Scotia Company, who forgot to pay him for them. When Mr. McLellan applied to me, I remember distinctly that I wrote to him advising him to forbid the government employees at West Bay station taking away the ties. He did so. He tells me he went to the station and forbade the government employees taking the ties away, warning them that he was going to apply to the Department of Railways for payment for these ties, having not been paid for them. The trackmen took the ties away, declaring that they knew nothing about the transaction between him and the Boston and Nova Scotia Company. From what I can gather from the department, the department certainly paid the Boston and Nova Scotia Company for the ties, but the company never paid Mr. McLellan for them. McLellan now. appeals through his solicitor to the department for redress. I must say that while the Department of Railways and Canals is innocent in the matter, it is a very hard case for Mr. McLellan, who honestly paid for the ties to the people who furnished them. There is an item, I believe, that the money was paid to Messrs. Fraser & Ross of the Boston and Nova Scotia Company.
