Mr. SPROULE.

These figures seem to show that while the average production before the bounty was 20,000,000 pounds, the average production since the bounty has been about 44,000,000 pounds. Within the last two or three years the production has gone down again. This would seem to indicate that the increase of the previous years may have been due in part to incidental causes outside of the bounty. My object was to learn to what extent,the lead industry had been stimulated, and I am glad to have the figures the minister (Mr. Templeman) has quoted.
