Mr. MARLER:

Let us be fair, let us discuss the proposed Australian treaty. There is no reason, so far as I know, why Australia should not compete with us in certain ol these commodities. But, on the other hand, there are distinct advantages to Canada under this treaty in that a market can be found in Australia for a great deal of our pulp and paper. The duty against us at the present time is $15 a ton. At one time it was considerably less, but when Australia increased it to the present figure, our exports to that country dropped from 29,400 tons to only 2,000 tons. The exportation of pulp and paper to Australia, I am frank to say, mean? a largely extended and growing market and will be distinctly advantageous to our manufacturers of those commodities. But I ask hon. gentlemen across the floor, how in any woy will the extension of that market be disadvantageous

to agriculture? There is no possible reason why it should be.
