The Csnadlaa administraden, he con- clniied. was ior the foverameni ot Canada and not lor the government ol Great Britain.or France. Sir Thomis White did not think anyone would believe the "preposter- ous" contention ol the lor Edmonton to the effect that the gov- ernment had not Been actuated by desire to help the allies In this Irani- action but that it had wilfully set about to ruin a railway enterprise of the late government. Heavy raits were needed at the front to bring Tip the big guns. The railway commission had been applied to as a non-partisan tribunal to advise where the rails should come from and Its advice had been followed. The minister admitted that near the seaboard sixty, pound rails and eighty-pound be joined because special fisb'-plate's could be supplied. Near the line, however, standard fish-plate! were re- -quired. Therefore, when thexnfst rails were taken, from the'National Transcontinental5 it. was necessary-to the same rails from the Grand Trunk "Pacific; Referring to the reque'st'Ot-the'British :go'vtrn- lenl, Ihe minister did not-thlnk that il r.
