That the House of Representatives be requested to amend the item by omitting the words "medicines" and " toilet preparations."

Honorable senators will notice that the preliminary paragraph of this item deals with essences, fruit ethers, medicines, and toilet preparations. Medicines and toilet preparations do not appear to be correctly classified, and should be included in their proper place.

Senator Pearce - This matter has been considered by the Department, and the officers agree that these articles should be placed elsewhere. No principle is involved.

Request agreed to.

Item agreed to, subject to a request.
