Mr. BROCK.

What do you mean by the ordinary selling price? There is the ordinary price of the manufacture of the article to

the wholesale trade and the jobbers, and there is the jobbers' price to the retail trade. Between these two there may be a difference of 15 or 20 per cent. Where a wholesaler in Canada buys from the manufacturer in the United States at 10 cents, goods which are sold by the manufacturers to jobbers in the United States at 10 cents and by them again sold probably at 121 cents, which is the market value. The American jobber has one price, the American manufacturer has another price.
