Mr. POPE.

I think we were discussing something with reference to exhibitions and have rather wandered from the subject. I have had a great afternoon and this evening is a fitting complement to it. I went to the circus before six o'clock and have been at another circus ever since. I looked over the animals down there this afternoon, and while I found some larger animals there which we have not here, I do not think that the monkeys began to compare with the specimens we have in this House ; but coming back to the item under discussion, I understood from the Minister of Agriculture that one of the results which followed the Japan exhibition was a great increase in the export of butter and flour. I would like to ask him if it is really the case that we have increased our exports of butter to Japan as the result of that exhibition ?
