It does not

come here; it is sold in Seattle. I confess I thought it all had to come here.

Mr. McBRIDE:

This assay office is very

important for Vancouver. Why should people have to go to Seattle and spend their money there -when they come down with gold from the Yukon and Cariboo? This office in Vancouver not only refines gold, but if any person has any gold in the way of brooches or anything of that sort the assay office will tell them the exact value of it, and purchase it if it is for sale, they can get it refined there also for a small fee. It is one of the most important institutions we have in Vancouver from a business standpoint.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I thoroughly agree with

the hon. member. I was just suggesting the office was! not necessarily on the strength of the minister's statement that the gold all came down here anyway. His statement was wrong.

Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil):

I was right

to this extent; it came down here until eight months ago. I did not know it had been changed since. I [DOT] am informed the Finance department did not require it, and therefore it is being sent to Seattle.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I presume it is all a

matter of the drift of the stream of gold. It would sometimes come here and and sometimes not, but undoubtedly it is good business to refine it here and not allow them to go down t-o Seattle with it.

Mr. BLACK (Yukon):

Is it not a fact that up until eight months ago under the War-

Supply-Geological Survey

time Measures Act the export of gold was prohibited? That regulation being relaxed, gold now goes where the best market is.

Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil):

I am told

there has ibeen no relaxation. You have to have a license to export. Of course, this is under the control of the Finance department and not upder our department and I think this assay office should also be under the control of the Finance department.
