Senator HOARE (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - At any rate we ought to give the matter a trial before saying who is right or wrong in that respect. We know, that distilleries which had to close down have resumed operations since the imposition of these increased duties, and that the price of the local article has not been increased. If while there is no increase in the price of the local article, the increased duty affords employment to our own people, I think we are entitled to give the matter a trial. There will he ample opportunity to review our decision of to-day when the tariff again comes before us for revision.
