The tariff of 1896 on wood alcohol was $2.25, but this free trade government made it $2.40. We have now the secret of Mr. Peuchen coming down and interviewing the government. The government did not turn a deaf ear to his request. He got a contract and he also got security that the Germans would not be allowed to send any alcohol in at the same price. I think that the Minister of Inland Revenue and the Minister of Finance might have taken the House into their confidence an hour ago and given us the inner history of this contract.
