Jnly 15-That a definite announcement in regard to the railway policy of the government following the report of the Drayton-Ack-worth commission will be mado before the end of the session, was the an-i nonncement made in parliament Saturday afternoon by Hon. Frank Coch-j rane when railway supplies were being considered. The discussion leading np to this announcement concerned a vote of $120,000 to pay the cost of the inquiry. Mr. Cochrane stated that while he had personally made up his mind as to what action should be taken, he was not prepared to speak for his colleagues of the cabinet. "You are the chief" suggested Mr. Sinclair otGnys-boro. "Yes. btit I am not the only one, by any means," the minister replied. Mr. German insisted that there should be a statement. The session would soon reach a termination and parliament should be made aware of the policy of the government. There must, he said, be prompt and effective action to make certain that in future no more money is given to railway promoters and the railway interests unless the public is fully safeguarded. Sir. Cochrane thereupon gave the assurance that the house, before the end of the session, would be fully informed as to the intentions and policy of the government. He repeated that there was no object at the moment of his giving his personal opinion. E. M. SlacDonald asked if any steps had been taken by the government to provide for the interest on certain railway bonds which fell due on July 30, and which everybody knew had not been met. Mr. Cochrane first stated that he was unable to answer the question personally, as it did not relate to his department. A little later, after conferring with' his colleagues on the floor of the house, the minister stated that insofar as the Grand Trunk Pacific is concerned, he understood that the interest has. been paid out of last year's vote by parliament. As to the C.X.R. he could not say.
