Mr. LOGGIE:

He speaks of silks as being a luxury, and yet he is exempting silk ribbons up to 60 cents a yard.

Mr. LOGGIE:

I now understand from

the minister that item has not been cut out. Well, as I understand it, what the tax means is this:. A silk skirt is taxable not for the excess in value over $15 but for its full value. Therefore at the 10 per cent rate a skirt which has been bought for $20 will pay $2 tax, and a coat costing $40 will pay $4 tax. If we are going to make clothing pay the excess over a certain price it is surely reasonable that silk garments should come within the same category and only pay the percentage on the excess. Another thing that is inconsistent: As proposed you allow women to go into a store and buy silk-

Mr. BOOGIE:

I would like to draw the attention of the minister to the fact that he has made no provision for ladies' silk dresses. In the case of wool dresses he has put the price at $35, and $15 for the skirt; but there is no provision made for dividing a silk dress-that is so-much for the skirt and so much for the coat. Inasmuch as the minister is making a division for garments made from woollen materials, I think it would perhaps be fairer that he also make a division for garments made of silk. I endorse the views of the hon. gentleman who has just sat down. I cannot see why there should .he a discrimination against, garments of the same price made of silk; if we were placing a higher value on silk garments, I could understand why the* difference should be made.

Mr. LOGGIE:

The present suggestion of the minister that it will be necessary for a departmental store in a country place carrying the same articles as a jeweller would carry in a city, to take out a license, is, to my mind, impracticable. If you attempted to carry out that suggestion, you would find that stores in country places would be discriminated against, because while they might carry jewellery, they certainly would not carry many of the articles that are supposed to be carried by jewellers in cities. What I understood was that, even in a Country place, any departmental store that had a jewellery department, would be entitled to get a license for whatever articles they kept that would come under this list. That is why I drew the attention of the minister to the word "chief," because this would not be the chief business of a departmental store in a small town. The minister's explanation now is that a departmental store in a small town can get a license provided that it carries the other class of goods usually carried by jewellers in large cities. That class of goods is not sold in departmental stores in small towns, and I should like the minister to consider the matter and strike out the word "chief." You could, not say that Eaton's jewellery branch was the chief business that firm was engaged in.
