Division   of   Work    Formerly    Performed by Dr. Rutherford Permits Closest Attention.
OTTAWA, Nov. 29.���John Bright,
of Myrtle, Ont., one of the best
known stock breeders ln Canada, has
been appointed Dominion Live Stock
Commissioner to succeed Dr. Rutherford, who resigned last spring. Dr.
Rutherford was Veterinary General
as well as Live Stock Commissioner,
but upon his leaving the service it
was decided to divide the positions
in order that the closest attention
might be given to the work of each
branch. Dr. Torrance, of Winnipeg,
was appointed Veterinary General,
and now Mr. Bright takes the position of Live Stock Commissioner.
Extensive Experience.
Mr. Bright is a live stock breeder
with extensive experience. He has
been intimately associated with most
of the leading live stock organizations of Canada, and in connection
with them has held the highest and
most important offices; he is thoroughly familiar with the live stock
interests of Canada, and has been
frequently called upon to act as judge
of live stock In provinces other than
that of Ontario, and his advice on
live stock matters has frequently
been asked by Ministers of Agriculture ln the Dominion.
It may also be noted that when
a delegation of the most iVomlnent
live stock men recently waited on
the minister, urging the appointment
of a Dominion Live Stock Commissioner, they stated that the appointment of Mr. Bright would be thoroughly satisfactory, as his long experience as a practical live stock man
and his thorough knowledge of the
live stock Industry generally well
qualified him to fill such a position.

To Mr. Asahel Smith, of Ladner,
belongs the credit of winning for
Delta and British Columbia first
prize for the best display of potatoes
at the Pacific North West Land Products Show, held at Portland. Mr.
Smith by his victory wins the silver
cup, the blue ribbon and the $100
cash   prize.
The Culver Non-Irrigated Products
Association of Oregon took second
honors and Mr. J. T. Hillsboro, of
Oregon, captured  third  prize.
As a special Inducement to Mr.
Smith to enter an exhibit of potatoes, the management of the exhibition offered three special prizes, adding a cash prize in each case, which
would in a measure reimburse competitors for the heavy expense they
are  under  in  entering.
Mr. Smith arranged an excellent
exhibit of thirty different varieties,
contained  In  thirty  different   boxes.
Mr. Smith was largely responsible
for the gathering of the exhibit
which carried off the famous Still-
well trophy, and this is only another
evidence of, not only the superiority
of Delta potatoes, but also of Mr.
Smith's  ability  as  a  grower. *
At the Spokane apple show also
another victory for British Columbia is reported. Mr. M. Stewart, of
Snmmerland. with twenty entries In
the five box and one box classes,
carried off thirteen first prizes and
four seconds, also winning first
prize in the "Foreign Country Special."

Shortly after noon, Mr. W. O. McQuarrie, counsel for the defence,
began his address to the Jury, continuing after the noon recess, speaking for over an hour. He told the
jury that the case was one which
should never have been made out In
the first place. The prosecution was
"brought by Wolfe for hip own ulterior motives, brought because he
had a case pending against the
municipality of Surrey and desired
to discredit the evidence of Stevens."
He went on to state that lt seameS

tion of agriculture that the government  would  probably     increase  the
grants  this year.     It   was to be re-1
gretted that in Canada, where agri- i
cultural possibilities    were    greater
than in any other    country    In the
World,  the provinces    gave so little j
attention  to  agricultural  education. I
The  great  support  went  to  institu- |
tions of higher education which turned out consumers Instead of producers, while with arable land enough to
raise food for the whole of Europe,
Canada had    to Import    foodstuffs
from  as far away  as New Zealand.
An effort should be made to divert
the youth of Canada from the effort
to acquire classics to the cultivation
of the soil.
Speaking  of  Ibe   navy,  Hon.   Mr.
Lougheed said the premier's visit to
Britain Inst year had been commented upon in a friendly way.    He was
not open to criticism for not having
made  in   England  an  announcement
of the naval policy.    The chief constitutional    course    required him to
formulate that programme    in Canada.       Sir George    Ross    yesterday
seemed to expect  that  Premier Borden   should   bave   stepped   into   the
Admiralty Office with  a cheque for
ten, twenty, thirty or forty millions,
ask them to cash it and go and buy
a  few   Dreadnoughts   with   the   proceeds.     That   would   not  have  been
a feasible  or proper  course.      The
proper one was that which was followed.    The Naval  Bill would have
already been before parliament if it
had   not  been   delayed   by  the   prolonging of the debate on the address
in the Commons.   When the bill was
brought    down he believed    that lt
would be found    satisfactory    to a
great majority of the Canadian people.    And the condition  which  accompanied lt would be ample.
Senator Dandurand.
Senator   Dandurand   said   he   did
not   know   what   mandate   the  Con-
aervatlves  felt  they    had     received
from the people ln  the last election
on  this  question.     If could be better told   when   the  bill  came  down.
The  Conservative   party  split     over
the proposition that in time of stress
the  Canadialn  navy  should  go     to
the aid of the British  fleets.
The night of the election both
horses ran into the same stable.
The government was informed of
their conflicting elements. The present prime minister sought to realize
all he could from tho strength of
the Nationalist allies and their propaganda In Quebec. This bad to be
taken Into consideration in determining what mandate the government bnd bepn given In the late
election for a nivnl policy,
Senator Bostock.
Senator Boslock expressed tbe
profit and pleasure the people had
derived from the visit of the Duke
and Duchess of Connaught last summer. In British Columbia, nature
had. as the speech said, given the
husbandmi-n an ample return, but
the producers found difficulty in
getting them to tbe proper markets.
Some attention sbould be given to
this. Senator Bostock noted that
the speech Indicated Intention to appoint additional senators from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.
I but no mention was made of a pro-
'posal to Increase tbe senatorial representation from British Columbia,
though there bad been a great Increase in the papulation of thai
Hon. Mr. Lougheed Interrupted to
say that there was statutory authority for the appointment of two additional senators from Manitoba.
Saskatchewan and Alberta, but unfortunately, no such provision for
British Columbia and to obtain such
authority Imperial legislation would
be required.
Mr. Bostock said be thought that
the Imperial parliament would not
hesitate to grant such legislation If
Canada asked for it. He was surprised that the matter had not been
arranged by Premier McBride and
Attorney-General Bowser when in
Ottawa recently. Senator Rostock
urged aid for highway development.

New  Dominion  Minister of  Agriculture Aims to Build Up Industry
by Practical Assistance.
(From The British Columbian.)
Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of
Agriculture, as a fruit grower en a
large scale first in the Niagara district and later in British Columbia,
has naturally taken a keen Interest
in the fruit industry. For a number
of years there has been an agitation
for better inspection of fruit for the
domestic market. Fruit for the export trade was carefully Inspected,
but the domestic trade was left to
the tender mercy of the dealer. After
careful consideration a thorough reorganization of the Inspectorial system has taken place. As far aa possible inspection at points of shipment
Is being carried out and thorough
attention is being given to a systematic inspection of all the fruit coming into Canadian markets from the
United States. A great many additional inspectors have been appointed
and a chief inspector placed in charge
of the various provinces. By this
means a lot of good educational work
will be done and there will be a more
thorough and systematic oversight
not only of fruit entering Canadian
markets, but also of that packed and
marketed by the Canadian growers.
The result will undoubtedly prove of
great value both to growers and consumers alike.
Five new chief inspectors were appointed and firteen temporary inspector's were added to the staff for the
fall  rush  of fruit.
New Dairy Stations.
The minister also has been taking
a keen Interest in dairying. During
the past few months a dairy station
has been erected at Finch, Ontario.
It is now being operated as a model
cheese factory and creamery. It Is
equipped with all the latest apparatus
and with facilities for investigation
and experimental work. It 13 the
first establishment of its kind in Canada. It Is hoped by the erection of
this station to effect some improvement in the character of the cheese
factory and creamery buildings In
Kastern Ontario.
The contract has just been let for
the erect,01, of a s.milar station ai
Brome. Quebec, which will relate
more particularly to the butter-making industry.
Dairy Record Centres.
New dairy record centres were organized during the present season dt
the following points: Llstowel.
Frankford, Kingston, Mallorytown
and Farmers' Union In Ontario; at
Way's Mills and St. Prosper, Quebec,
and at Kensington, P.E.I. An expert Is in charge at each of these
centres. A supervisor of cow testing was appointed last spring for New
Brunswick. The organization of
these centres has given a strong Impetus to the cow testing movement.
Improving Sheep Flocks.
Mr. Burrell has given a lot of attention to ways and means of reviving the declining sheep industry.
The Ontario and Dominion Sheep
Breeders' Associations have been cooperating with him. Experts were
sent to British Columbia and the
Maritime provinces, and an exhaustive report was made to the minister
which is being acted on at the present time. As a result of their recommendations sales of grade ewes and
pure bred rams were held this fall.

Victoria Lumber Company Will Instal
Compressed Fuel Plant Near
Gorge Road.
VICTORIA, Nov. 20.���A new Industry will shortly be located ln the
mill district if plans prepared by
Messrs. Lemon, Gonnason & Company, Ltd., are approved by the building inspector. The company contemplates erecting a compressed fuel
factory on lots 5 and 6, of lots 42
and 43, section 5, Gore road. The
factory will be as fire proof as it
is possible to construct it and will
not, the company assertB, be in any
respect a nuisance or menace to surrounding property. The refuse material from the lumber mills will be
used in the manufacture of the fuel,
thus tending materially to do away
with the burners now being operated
by the saw mills. The plant will cost
about $7,000 for building and $20,-
000 for machinery.
