By section 1 of that Act, the
works which the company by the
Provincial Act was empowered to
operate, were declared to be for the
general advantage of Canada, and
by section 4 the company was given the right to begin the railway j
within two years, and  to complete
the passing of the Act, June 13,

Dominion Railway Act.

this district if he be allowed to obtain a foothold. In the exuberance
