Ottawa, April S.-VMa Valiquette, an Inspecting engineer of the public works department, was examined this ! morning by the public accounts com-I mittee in connection with the dredg-. ing at Victoria B. C, which involve an over-classification totalling 28,000 yds. of rock at $9.10 a yard. Mr. Valiquette had gone to Victoria and made an investigation: He re-I mained three days, reported on his return that everything was all right, and that the progress estimates should be accepted. Later A. St. Laurent went out and found differently, reporting that rock prices were being charged when the material was earth, for which only 52 cents per yard should have been charged. Mr. Valiquette changed his mind later, and, asked by Bernard, of Victoria, why he had changed his mind, said it was because he discovered that lio had been deceived by Mr. McLauchlin and by the contractors as to the dredges and other material.
