I believe It Is ne- cessity that tint governmeut should "COST OK THE NATIONAL TRANSCONTIN- 'ENTAL UXUER the above'caption the: Gapadiau 'En- engineering "journal "of .v repute, jjuhlishcs ii letter which should read by everj- Canadian inlereslexl in Ihe recent.'finrting-'of the expenses Other items Galelius-kynch-Siaunion Commisiiori, appointed by Ihe Borden'government to the work-of the commission thai.had iu hani-.the.construc- tion of the National.TransoontineriUVRailway. There is no more reason to doubt the acy of Mr. Bravley's figures thjuii'those- of -Mr. Gulelius, former C. P. R. official loaned to the government for the purpose of probing the ad- ministration of the late government, who .says have been squandered. The leHer follows: notice in the daily press, under the lieading of ''Bonded Indebtedness and Annual Interest Charges of Cana'dian an; item for the Notional Transcontinental Railway as fol- lows: "Line, .ydncton to Winnipeg, being constiruct- cd by Dominion government. "Estimated cost guaranteed by gov- crnmenl, f The cost of the. National TraugconlinenUl Railway for constructing and equipping the roatl, outside of fulling stock, from Moncton to 'Winni- peg, will not far exceed ?i Major R. Leonard, commissioner, and Mr. Gordon (Jranf, chief engineer, estimate this'cost to be sijmcwhere around An item ap- peared in another Montreal paper as follows; February National Trmis- coiilinentarRailway and its cost is dealt with in an interim' repori of (he commissioner, Major Leonard; for the nine rrfonlhs of the fiscal year December 31. It was tabled in the House last night. "The total outlay in the nine months and up to the end of the. calendar year the aggregate was this is exclus- ive of interest on capital. "Track-laying was completed on the eastern section on November 17.... There are 1863 miles main line, 20 of double track, and 407.of sid ings. Steel bridges are.95 per cent, .cornplefe'd. "The rest of the; report deals, with contracts awarded during the year for ment and supplies." Tins proves that my statement is correct, as fcmy competent railway engineer knows that should not take more Uisn lo lo complete the road, ready to operate in an clflcieM manner. Any engineer conncctet with Ihe headquarters stuff of the National Trans continental Railway at Ottawa, will affirm tha the cost of construction of this road will not be over and that according to the Na tional Transcontinental Act, the Grand Triml Pacific will only iwvc to pay interest on the act ual cost of the road, which will not exceed SI 60, My reason for drawing-your ultention to tlii iimtler is that I'don'l think it the credit o Canada She wiuj were connected s doing, .with the National Transcontinental Railway, lo advertise, not only in Cannrta but in Europe, thai Yours truly, II.
