Last session I had the honour of introducing a similar Bill to this, and I explained it pretty fully at that time. It being late in the session, I explained that 1 would not press it to a finality that session, but that lion, members would have ah opportunity of circulating it through their ridings and ascertaining whether public .opinion was in favour of it. Since that time I have heard no complaints against the Bill. The explanation I gave last session is in Hansard. The Bill is for the purpose of obtaining a uniform inspection of hides, skins and leather in the cities mentioned in the Bill, to which only it is intended to apply. By that means the hides, it is expected, will be taken more carefully off the animals, and will thereby be increased in value.
