Mr. DENIS:

I notice that in the case of spirits manufactured in Canada a duty of $9 is imposed on every gallon of the strength of proof by Sykes' hydrometer, and that on spirits imported there is a duty of $10 a gallon according to the strength of proof. Is the gauge used to measure the alcohol which is manufactured in Canada different from that which is used to gauge the imported alcohol?
