Mr. EULER:

I know perfectly well the
statement to which my hon. friend refers, but I am not speaking only of farm products. I mentioned fish and lumber. I did not even mention farm products, but for the hon. gentleman's benefit I may add that Governor Roosevelt makes this statement:
The main remedy, however, is simply the extension of the benefits of the tariff to the growers of the great export crops-wheat, cotton, etc.-"temporarily," he aualifies.
" Temporarily " would indicate that the time may not be very long. Now, five years is rather long. The Solicitor General the other day said that he would begin with the family and enlarge to the rest of the world. Well, the world will have to wait five years, and nations move pretty rapidly in these times. In conclusion, Mr. Speaker-
Mr. Speaker: The hon. member's time is
up.
Some lion. MEMBERS: Go on.
