Mr. McMASTER:

The first is that in view' of the low price of the article and the high price of firewood, maple trees are being cut down when they really should remain to be tapped. The association does not ask for the expenditure of money, on which fact they are to be congratulated, but merely that an educational campaign should be inaugurated, no doubt by the Department of Agriculture, to show the unwisdom of such proceeding. The second matter in connection with the same industry is that the Association of Maple Sugar and Syrup Producers complain that there are many infractions of the law at this time, and they would like to see the government move in the direction of a more exacting administration of the act under which maple sugar and maple syrup are administered.
