from this moat important work.
As an instance of this I might cite
tlie provision made lu the istlniates
with a view of building a road Irom
Crnnbrook to Kimberley with it
bridge across tbe St. Mary's river.
Tills road, eighteen miles in length
will sborten tile ilistanco between
those points by nine miles, besides
giving a bettor, grade. It will servo
a most important timber region,
giving two or throe mills, already
employing many bands, much needed

facilitate the trade now being done
with that centre. Many settlors already aro going into thc district,

Extraordinary Evidence Submitted
by Mr. Lumsdeii
Ottawa, March 10. The committee
which is investigating tho charges
made by Mr. Lumsdon, tho former
Chief Engineer ol the Trnnscontinon
tni hns already discovered that ev
traordinnry grafting went nn along
tbe line of railway. Here arc some
cases which Mr. Lumsden submitted
in evidence. All were in district H.
Which lies cast and west ol Quebec
City. The usual price of the "rock"
wns 11.50 a cubic yard; for "loose
rpek' Till rents; nnd for common ex
novation ai cents a ('iiiiiii yard.
Case No. \, The government engineers returned the following figures
for one piece ol road: rock, 7,;i7r,
yards; loose rock, 4,6C0; common ov
onvati     9,116', total 81,050   yards;
Applying the foregoing prices wo ilnii
that the contractors got 114,696.1)6.
Hut Mr Lumsden when he went, ovei

price of this should hnve been jl,12n-
Thus the contractor should hnve

1,232 of common excavation. Thin
works out to J7,711.1)3 which wns
paid to thc contractors. Mr. Linus
den says that the llgures should Imve
been only 600 yards of loose rock;
all tbe rest earth. On this basis it
would havo been '1,785.35.
Thus the contractor got 87,711,98,
He should hnve got 81,735.35.
lie got 16,1178.56 more than ho
should have got; or 340 per cent
more than he was entitled to. This
piece of work cost nearly lour and a
