Mr. FORTIN.

I can tell the hon. gentleman'that I have inquired, since the Bill came up, from Mr. Drinkwater, Who is the acting president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, whether such an intimation had been given as that to which the hon. gentleman refers. He tells me that no such promise has been made, no such intimation has been given, but that the company are ready to proceed with the construction of the North-west Central road as rapidly as possible, and they expect to build forty miles of the road during the coming summer.

Mr. FORTIN.

This Bill was fought by the hon. member for Saskatchewan (Mr. Davis) and some other members from the North-west when it was before the Railway Committee. Suggestions and requests were made, and finally, after a great deal of discussion, an amendment suggested by the hon. Minister of Railways and supported by the hon. Minister of Public Works, was accepted and is embodied in the Bill. Without admitting for one moment that there is not an answer and a good answer to all that has been said by the hon. member who has just taken his seat, I may say that there is reason to believe that an agreement might be reached between the interested parties. Therefore, reserving the opportunity to answer what has been said by the hon. member, I would simply move that the committee rise, report progress, and ask leave to sit again.

Mr. FORTIN.

I do not understand exactly to what the hon. gentleman (Mr. Davis) refers. If he refers to the amendment which was proposed in the Railway Committee and which was adopted at the suggestion and at the request of the hon. Minister of Public Works (Hon. Mr. Tarte), I may say that the amendment is embodied in the Bill as reported to the House. I would be glad if the hon. gentleman would explain if he wants anything further.
