Mr. U. WILSON (Lennox).
I have been a pretty constant attendant at the meetings of the Committee on Agriculture and Colonization, but I was absent at the particular one which adopted this report. There is one thing which pleases me in the evidence and that is that it fully establishes the fact that the only one of our Canadian manufacturers of twine was fined for shortage in measurement. All the other found short was American twine imported into this country. It is quite evident that putting twine on the free list does not tend to cheapen it or make the dealings more satisfactory.
