Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

Not only have we in the city of St. John very fine terminals, but the Government is spending enormous sums of money there in developing 'the port and in providing additional terminals.

We would say that we would he able to handle ait the ocean terminals in St. John and Halifax all the freight that is carried from one .part of Canada to the ports that I have mentioned.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

The Minister of Railways will understand that our people in the East feel that ocean freight gathered by the Grand Trunk Pacific in the West and other points should be shipped through Canadian ports, and that ocean freight destined for points on the Grand Trunk Pacific in the West should be received at Canadian ports.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

May I ask the

Minister of Railways a question? The answer to this question is one in which the people of the ports of Saint John and Halifax are personally and deeply interested. If the Minister of Railways is not prepared to give an answer this evening, I do not ask for one now; but when the Bill is under discussion, I should like a statement from the minister if he cannot give an answer now. My question is this: Is it proposed by the Government to utilize the ocean terminals of the Grand Trunk at Portland, Maine, in the shipping and receipt of ocean freight?

Mr. H. H. McLEAN:

I do not think the hon. gentleman who has just spoken quite understood my point. It is quite true these official trustees could be appointed, and there would be no objection to them. But suppose there are estates where the creditors represent three-fourths, in amount, or a majority number, and they say "We do not want to leave it to the official trustee, we want to appoint a trustee of our own." Provided that man gives security to the satisfaction of the judge, why should not he be appointed? That is the point I want to make. This question does not arise in the ordinary cases. In those cases the creditors may agree to the official trustee; but in such a case as I have mentioned why do you deliberately take away from the owners of the property-because if a man is insolvent his creditors own the estate- the absolute control of that property? If the creditors do not want to take control the official trustee carries on the estate; but here you are raising this barrier. If the creditors are united in the matter- representing say three-quarters of the amount involved, and also, if you wish, a majority number-and if they want to appoint a special person for a particular purpose, why should they not have that power of appointment? There surely can be no answer to that.
