A. Buchanan, M. P., de- clared that try: government should either make ihe company ''build or quit." The Western Dominion Railway has had a charter for some to build a line from the internat- ional bc-undary through Cardston lo Pincher Creek. So far it is prac- tically a railway on ppper, Mr.- Buchanan in committee wanted a guarantee from the company that they were really in, earnest about building this line PS the country it would traverse badly needed the read and the fact that the charter had been granted to the campany was being used by other railroads as an excuse'for not building. Either it WPS a case of the Western Dominion building the line, or else the government should cancel the charter, in whfch case the government should look after providing trans- portation for the territory depen- dent on the projected line. The minister of railways was quite sympathetic towards at- titude taken by Mr. Buchanan and the matter will bt very considered before any lirrte ex- tension is granted. The Western Dominion in de- fense stated that it realty serious about building this road and had spent m grading in 1914. The decision on the application was deferred until the ntxt meet- ing of the railway committee.
