The fact remains that the sale of binder twine direct to the farmer has been a decided success. My hon. friend (Mr. Fitzpatrick) shakes his head at that, but the facts bear out my statement. We find by the record that a few years ago twine was sold to supporters of the government without any tender at a very low price, and the complaint that was made in the House was that the farmers did not have an opportunity of purchasing the twine. Taking up the Auditor General's Report for this year, I find that since the new resolution was adopted by the House almost 500 farmers in Canada ordered direct from the penitentiary and secured then- twine. I pointed out last year and the year before that in my humble opinion the penitentiary was manufacturing too many kinds of twine, that what the farmers want is pure manilla twine. That is about the only kind that is sold generally, in Ontario, at leask.
