Country Life More Advantageous
Than City," was debated. Messrs.
J Melntyre and Chris Erown with
Miss Kitison took the affirmative,

Heard took the negative. Kevs.
Mr. McAuley aud Mr. Owen and

met by the whole band, and Wednesday, the 2 ist February settled
on as being the date.

It has been suggested that a public meeting be called to take up tbe
natter of glanders. Considerable
dissatisfaction is expressed regarding the Mallein Test as applied in
Vancouver, and it has been considered advisable to take this means of
protesting against its use here unless there are visible signs wbich
ffpuld justify the use ef tbe test.
To persons coming from rocky
and perilous seacoasts, it seems
Terr strange that so many precious
souls should be allowed to perish
without any attempt at rescue being
made by tha crews of those vessels
hovering near. Surely, when a
man, encumbered with a lifeline,
could live through the breakers, a
raft travel in safety through the
breakers with living beings on
them and finally deposit their
burdens iu safety, surely there is no
reasonable excuse for those vessels
standing by without sending their
boats through the smoother water,
in an attempt at rescue.
What did the rescur party ? Not
a single thing. They lowered no
boat, no life raft, no buoys and sent
uo rocket even. At least, we have
no record of their having done anything of the kind.
Where there was sufficient water
%o almost cover the Valencia, there
must have been ample water to
float safely the largest boats carried
by the "rescue" fleet, it not sufficient to carry a tug safely through.
Were tbe crews afraid to use the
"lifeboat! ?"

see no reason why all were not

Investigations by the Live Stock
Branch ot the Dominion Department
of Agriculture into the alleged
shortage of hogs have shown hat i< r
some months past the supply o'
beacon hogs in Canada has beeu
falling off. Even before the order
was issued debarring packers from
importing United States hogs to be
slaughtered in bond, difficulty was
experienced by Canadian packers
in procuring sufficient hogs. Tbe
amount of the shortage '.nrins* the
summer and fall is indicated by the
fact that packers claim to have been
able to secure only from 30 to 50
per cent of the capacity of their
Hog raisers on the other hand
claim that the production is considerably nearer th** normal than
would appear rom the statements
ot the packers. It is, thev say,
partly an increase in packing house
capacity rather than a decrease in
hog raising. In some of the dairying sections the supplies are reported to be very litttle if any below
the normal, while in other districts
the shortage is placed at ab.ut 20 10
25 per cent.
Inquiries as to the cause oi the
shortage brought from packers and
producers a variety of replies. The
packers claim that for tke past three
years or more the competition be
tweenbuyersof hogs hasbeen ->okee n
that top prices have been paid continuously and that these pi ices have
been high enough tti _,ive a profit
to the producer. They claim therefore to be at a loss to understand
why there is a shortage al this time
Speaking from the standpoint ofthe
producer, well informed autborit ies
claim that the price has not been as
uniformly high as it shoull have
been, At times of the year when
the packers anticipated heavy runs,
prices dropped to a point where bo
profit was left to the feeder. This,
they, claim, took place last seas n
when sows would be bred for tbe
suppli.s ofthe fall just past, and a
coarse grains were high and labor
scarce at that tim* many brood sows
were sent to he market.
Again it is argue that the majority ot packers have not enc mrag
ed the production of bogs of the
bacon type and weight For ��� nvim
ber of years improvement in the
hog stock of the country made satisfactory progress, but during the past
season, at least, theproducersof the
ideal sort have received no en
couragement to continue their good
work; a flat rate has betn. paid for
good and bad alike. The hogs,, fit
only to complete with the low
price American stock, brought quite
as much as the sort tbat competes
with Irish and Danish bacon for
the highest place on the British
Whatever may be the extent of
the shortage or the real cause of it
the  fact remains that unless producers and packers grapple in sym
pathetic co-operation with the situa
tion  Canada's valuable bacon in
dustry which has cost years of stren
uous effort to build up. may become
seriousiy demoralized.
In 1890 there were only two packing houses in the export trade with
a weekly capacity of some 3,000
hogs, while in 1905 the weekly capacity of the 16 packing houses in
operation was some 50,000. While
this limit has not been reached with
in from 10,000 to 15,000 hogs week
ly, according to the season, the out
put from Canada has reached about
$15,000,000 annually or 20 per cent
ot the total quantity of bacon imps- rte! by H res��t Britai a To jeopardize so Vis.i.-b!-* an iauustry would
be nothing less than a national calamity. If the farmers who have
been in the habit of raising hogs
will accord the bacon industry a
steady, persistant support begotten
j of ihe knowledge that hog raising
' pays year iu and year out, the future has very large possibilities for
j the Canadian bacon industry. Can-
! adian bacon having won a place on
the British market commanding re-'

imp oves in q a .. , wili undoubtedly become a daily necessity ofthe
consumer. That it may occupy this
enviable position both farmer and
