LEATHER RESTRICTIONS.

DUNEDIN, April 4

In reply to criticism of the new regulations limiting the export of hides and calfskins, the principal point objected to being that the regulations were aimed at tanners with power to secure an unlimited quantity of hides at a price that unless the price of leather is fixed the regulation would have no effect on the price of footwear, the Hon. W. D. S. Mac Donald replies that it was proposed that tanners, leather merchants, exporters and manufacturers should be subjected to limitations of prices at a proved parity. The Minister stated that when the embargo was under consideration an application was made to the. Board of Trade for permission to export 25,000 hides, while the tanners were practically bare of stocks and were asking for 50,000 hides.
