1903 over $4,000,000 worth of cattle, and over $1,500,000 of butter. Austria-Hungary exported of eggs and cheese more than $10,000,000. Denmark, to my great surprise, a little country with a population of 2,500,000, made 169,000,000 pounds of butter, and exported $10,000,000 worth. Russia exported animals valued at $12,000,000, and butter valued at $24,000,000; wheat flour and barley, $200,000,000. Australia and New Zealand, although not favoured nations, will come in under this pact. Australia exported butter, cheese and eggs to the value of $12,000,000. New Zealand sent out $16,000,000 worth of meat, and $12,000,000 worth of butter^ and cheese. Speaking of wheat, the question has been put up to me that we have been exporting wheat already through the United States. That is quite true, but it has been going through in bond, and that is a very different thing. When wheat goes through bond the by-product could not be utilized in the United States, and had to be sent through bond also. After this pact is signed our wheat will go to the United States to be ground by their millers and the by-product will be sold in the United States for feeding their hogs. If we wish to get any of that by-product returned to Canada, as my hon. friend from Lisgar (Mr. Sharpe) said last night, we will.have to pay a duty of 12$ cents per 100 pounds. I would like to place on record a statement of some of the natural resources of Canada as estimated:
Standing timber, 500 billion feet.
Wheat lands, 117 million acres.
Coast fisheries, 12,500 miles.
Fresh water fisheries, 440,000 miles.
Our coal is estimated at 172,000,000,000 tons; we have produced $260,000,000 of gold; silver mines rank third in the world; nickel, we have three-fifths of the world.
