Mr. BOTHWELL:

No, but I do class

wheat, oats, cattle, beef, hogs and products of that sort as vegetable and animal products. We can exclude furs, fish and the other items mentioned by the acting leader of the opposition.

Mr. BOTHWELL:

I expect to continue

my speech to-morrow and I will try to have that information for the hon. member.

An increased tariff on vegetable and animal products would not benefit the producer at all. We will not gain anything by putting up a tariff wall against the United States. Our wheat has to meet the competition of the world; our animal products practically have to meet the competition of the world, and what possible benefit are we going to derive from any increase in the tariff?
