I know that the price

of lead has doubled since the bounty was given tiwo years ago. While I am not as well posted on the price of zinc, I have no doubt that it has increased very materially since the bounty was granted. I am aware that the cost of refining zinc is very much greater than it was, hut the circumstances show that the moment you grant increased protection or give (bounties on these products you start to feed these babies and they come back to the Government from time to time. A great many interests throughout the country are trying to make the war an excuse for seeking consideration to which they are not entitled and which they would not otherwise be given. It is well to point out to these industries that while we in the West are satisfied not to bother about the reduction of duties until after the war, if they try, because of the war, to obtain consideration to which they are not entitled, they may look for trouble in the near future.
