Mr. DANIEL.

In calling for tenders was it not stipulated that it should be a direct service both ways?

It will be seen that our trade with Mexico is very much smaller than our trade with Cuba, and yet the subsidy granted to the steamship iines running between Canada and Cuba, is $25,000 while the subsidy for the steamship service between Canada and Mexico on the Atlantic is $50,000, and on the Pacific $*75,000. That is, our subsidy for the steamship service between Mexico and Canada on the Atlantic is twice as large as our subsidy for the steamship service to Cuba, yet our trade with Cuba is very much larger than our trade with Mexico. I do not understand on what basis the subsidies are granted. If they are granted to facilitate trade one would naturally expect that there would be some proportion between the subsidies granted and the amount of trade. The subsidies seem to be in inverse ratio to the trade.
