Sir SAM HUGHES:

The original Shell Committee had the honour of establishing the zinc industry. At that time the British authorities were paying from forty-two to forty-five cents per pound for zinc in the United States, and under the contract entered into the zinc was to be supplied at fifteen cents per pound. Unless I am misinformed, the price in the United States is not fifteen cents per pound to-day.
