An interesting and instructive
article on the Canadian system
of canned meal inspection has
been issued from Uie ollice of
the veterinary director general,
its chief features art- as lollows:
The meat inspection service ol
thc department ol agriculture at
Ottawa is carried ou under the
authority of the meat and canned loods acl, a measure which
received the royal assent at llu-
prorogation ol parliament in
June, 1907, and came into operation on September 3rd, ol thai
Present day sentiment in Europe and elsewhere, especially
since the recent revelations in
Chicago, is arrayed very strongly against thc use, as human
lood, ol any meats save those
duly inspected and certified by-
proper governmental authority.
It was in conformity with this
sentiment, and chiefly with the
object of preserving our valuable
export trade in bacon and similar products, that the moat and
canned foods act was passed.
With the view of clearing up
any misunderstanding which
may exist in the public mind as
to the exact nature of the legislation under which the present
meal inspection service is conducted, the following explanation is given:
Belore the meat and canned
foods act was introduced in the
house of commons by the Hon.
Sydney Fisher, the minister ol
justice was asked for an opinion
as to the powers ol the federal
government with reference to
meat inspection.
His reply was tlvat while these
puiiers undoubtedly warranted
lhe federal government in undertaking the inspection ol articles
exported from the dominion nr
Irom one province to another,
then- was very grave doubt as
to whether they would permit
ol a similar inspection ol articles, the trade 111 which was con-
lined within Uie boundaries of
any one province.
this limitation was especially
applicable to meat inspection, a
subject intimately associated
with public health, and ol the
matters which, since 1872, has
been dealt with altogether by
the provincial authorities.
Provision is made either by
the municipal act or by the
public health act ol each province, and in some cases by
both, for thc establishment and
carrying on ol municipal meat
And,under the provincial laws
thus provided, it is quite possible Ior municipalities to organize, at but little cost, a thoroughly cllcclive system ol local
meat inspection, thc machinery
being, in many cases, already
provided, and the additional expenditure, therefore, comparatively small.
Thc awakening of the publii
conscience on the meat inspection question might reasonably
be expected as a result ol the
adoption, by the federal government, of a policy ol inspection
ol meats for export and inter-
provincial trade, and the agitation now making itsell lell in
many oi the larger centres ol
population throilglioui llu COM
try is then-lore not surprising.
There is no doubt, that onie
the Canadian public has betoliie
seized ol the situation, they will
insist upon the adoption, by the
various municipal authorities
throughout the country, ol a
much more thorough system ol
dealing willl butchers and tinmen! trade generally than has
hitherto beea tolerated.
A fairly high standard Is being set, and all that is required,
is ior the municipal authorities
to adopt, under the legislation
now twisting, regulations, with
the view ol rendering unmarketable, diseased or otherwise unsound meats, which, under present conditions, cannot enter
establishments engaged in export or interprovincial trade.
The lirsl and most lluporUllt
stqp in this direction will, it is
needless to say, bc the providing
ol public municipal abattoir!,
to be conducted under inspection
method! similar to those 1 enquired by the meal and canned
loods act, especially as regards
the admission either ol live animals or their carcases.
The sooner the private slaughter house is abolished altogether, the heller Ior all concerned,
as most ol the objectionable
meats placed on the market,
emanate Irom these undesirable
and unsanitary places.
The trade in home-killed dressed carcases will also, lor similar reasons, gradually be wiped
out of existence, and although
the abolition ol this form of
meat disposal will probably
cause some temporary dissatisfaction among fanners, matters
will soon adjust themselves, and
the prolits to Uie producer will
ibe in no way lessened, although
tlie livers and other ollal, Hitherto utilized by the household,
will be no longer available.
The municipal aballoir is a
modem necessity and must
There arc many, not yet old,
who can well recollect when the
number ol hospitals in Can.id. 1
could almost bc coasted on the
lingers, and when a proposal to
erect an institution oi this kind
in a small town was looked upon as indicating a mild iorm 01
insanity, llow many of the
communities now possessing
modem and u|*-to-date hospitals
would In* s.itislicd lo do without
The same will be found true of
the abattoir, and il no othur argument could be advanced in
lavor ol the meat and canned
loods act than the lact that it
has aroused and is arousing public opinion on the great and important question of a sanitary
meat supply, this would fully
justify its being placed on the
statute books.
j There are at present employed
,68 veterinary inspectors, all of
whom have received a special
training in meat inspection, and
have passed a searching examination as to their qualifications.
There are also 11 lay Inspectors whose duties comprise tin-
supervision of thc marking and
shipment of goods.
The inspection conducted, is
as (ollows:
1 All animals l..r slaughter are
examined by a veterinary inspei-
tor on the premises belore they
are allowed to enter the killing
floor. All animals found to be
'diseased, or showing suspicious
'symptoms of any kind, arc tagged and held back until the end
of thc day's kill, when they are
slaughtered separately.
The inspector makes a thorough examination ol llu caicaaa
and of all organs of every animal as it is killed. If these arc-
found healthy, they arc stam|H(l
with the inspection legend, Uncrown, and the words "Ciii.id.i
Approved," as also tllc esl.ili-
lislmient number.
Anv meats found, in whole or
ill part, to be diseased, ,.r Irolll
other causes unlit (or lood, are
iiiinicdi.itclv in,nked with a
"condemned" tag.
Any carcass, in regard tn the
condition of which there is caOH
lor doubt, is marked "Held"
and set apart for further exam
ination, at the conclusion of
which the inspector decides as
to its disposition.
Condemned ciroscs and organs, as also any meats which
are at any time found to have
undergone such deterioration as
to unlit them for human food,
are tanked with the non-ed'ilile
products, under the personal supervision of an inspector,
A summary ol the reports of
condemnations made by the inspectors during the last fiscal
year, shows a total of 9,308
carcases, 280,541 portions, as
also 353,212 pounds of meat,
condemned as until for human
(ood. This should demonstrate
elleitually the necessity which
actually exists for a thorough
system of meat inspection.
When it is remembered that
these establishments under inspection handle only animals of
the best class procurable, the
conditions which exist in the ordinary private slaughter house,
conducted without inspection or
ollicial supervision of any kind,
may readily be imagined.
Boards of health and municipal authorities, have been too
long neglectful of the necessity
for intelligent action in the matter of meat inspection.
It is the duty of every man to
see that his family, as well as
himself, does not eat diseased or
unwholesome meat. In places
where establishments under federal inspection do not exist,
safety in this regard can be secured only by the establishment
of a municipal abattoir, conducted under the constant supervision ol a skilled professional

A lake surrounded by evergreens, nestles in the hills immediately at the rear of the
properly; but in order lo make
every provision Ior an unlimited
supply ol pure water for domestic purposes, water rights have
been tiled on three mountain
streams running through, or adjacent lo the property. The installation ol a water servire system will receive early consideration. Two of these streams Iall

excellent water power, and it is
planned lo Utilise this for electric light and power purposes.
The preliminary clearing for

At present, White Cliff is

constitute potent factors in the
progress and up-building of
White Clill. The present run ol

ol the planned transportation.
Not the least importanl plan
lor the ihwlopintiii ol white
Clill is an hotel of the most up-
to-date type, with spacious
grounds. Under the control of
lhe   Uialiagiiuiiit   ol   the   hotel
families who desire seclusion.
The hotel site has been decided
upon, and for convenience and
beauty stands unrivalled. Clill
Bay, where the hotel will be situated, oilers splendid opportunities for salt water bathing, and
on lhe Sound within a mile ol
the hotel site are the deep-sea
lishing grounds ol the early aborigines. Part of the original
hotel site is platted into lots,
and will be available for erecting permanent homes in a position that will enable the occupants to avail themselves of the
comforts and conveniences of a
lust class hotel.
A feature tributary to While
Clill which will appeal to thc
student and those who wrestle
with problems, social, economic
tine] religious, is the proposed
summer school. It is the intention lo conduct this school
along the lines ol the popular
Chautauqua'assemblies of the
United States. The curriculum
ol the school will include lectures by celebrated scholars from
Great Britian, Eastern Canada,
and the United States. A tract
ol 45 acres has already been set
aside for school purposes. The
letters ol enquiry and approbation already received from distant parts of Canada and the
United States, justify the most
sanguine views of this feature of
White Clill.
The working out of this broad
and comprehensive scheme is a
matter of only a comparatively
short time, and White Clill City
is without doubt destined to
stand in practically the same relation to the congested population upon Burrard Inlet,, in
which Atlantic City stands to
New York, or Brighton to London. The summer resorts of
the North Shore will contribute
an important factor to the facilities allorded for relaxation
and recreation, at a convenient
distance Irom the busy and
crowded commercial and industrial centres.

mongst the British, so there is
no doubt that through time, ilu

b tbt opinion of Acting Mayor Prescott who was a member of the party vbksb attended the formal
opening (Jl Whiti* Cliff as a guest of Col. White. In his address Mr. Prescott said be "heartily congratulated the Company on the excellent idea upon which they were at work and expressed his appreciation of tlie opportunity of seeing for himself the lovely spot on which their choice had fallen, and
declared that he had always considered Horseshoe Hay the hest spot for such a purpose on Howe
Sound and was convinced of its success."
Nowhere else in Howe Sound is there a location lor a summer home which has as many natural advantage! and the same beautiful scenery as you will find at White Cliff.
The lots are 50 feet wide ; they face the Bay and command an uninterrupted view of the sound
and snow-capped mountains iu the distance.   It is an ideal view property.
The attractive features of the location, the natural beauty of the spot, the splendid supply of fresh
water from three mountain streams, the presence of deep salt water to the very shore line, the fact
that the natural foreshore of Horseshoe Hay and Fiiherman's Cove is reserved for public UBe, the excellent fishing in the immediate vicinity ; its convenience to Vancouver, from which it is no further
removed than an* the residences of the greater mass of business and professional men in sueh cities
as New York and Chicago from their places of business.
Such a resort as White Cliff is demanded by existing conditions at present, and we know of no
more desirable location for the purpose than White Cliff.
In order that you may fully appreciate the beauties of Howe sound it is really necessary that you
visit the property.
You will find White Cliff more beautiful than described.
If you are interested in a site for a summer home, before you decide on any particular location,
take time to carefully investigate the many points of merit in White Cliff.
Call at my office and viow the many photographs taken of the property.
The prices are low the terms easy. If you forward your name and address at once I will be pleased
to furnish you with a copy of the beautiful bonk now on the press of "Picturesque White Cliff"

BY H. isn.aa IKUiO.
In his second chapter on types
ol ancient and modern towns,
speaking of causes which have
determined the origin and
growth ol cities, the author
cites M. Reclus' generalization,
"primitiive man looked out the
cite, civilized mail founded and
Ibuilt the city."
This is remarkably iuManced
in our own neighborhood of Hurrard Inlet, where have Ibeen
known the Indian villages on
the Inlet shores, at the mouths
ol False creek, Seymour, Capi-
l.uio and other streams, around
which in several cases city development has already taken
place, and towards which in
other instances city extension is
rapidly moving.
It is natural then to inquire
what wollld determine primitive
man in his selection ol sites. In
the case of the Indians of our
vicinity, abundance af fish and
clam beds doubtless proved the
principal attraction. Need ol
drinking water would incline
them to hug a stream's edge,
and, as traversing primeval lor-
est was arduous, easy canoe travel would determine location on
the Inlet shore.
Information is given in the
volume under examination, that
occasionally superstition operated to determine city locations,
as in places where a great sulh
lerranean river rose to the surface, or where volcanoes with
their awe-inspiring eruptions led
to lhe erection ol temples and
the centering of population near
lliem. Sometimes such advantages as an accessible "bed ol
llinl for weapons, a vein of
metal, a mine, or even a deposit of clay good for domestic pottery" would inlluence selection.
Still ofti-ner primitive man
would choose a spot on the natural highways of commerce—
river Ibank, lake or seashore,
where neighboring tribes would
meet lor councils, Ior religious
rites, or, most import jl all,
lor barter and tra^. The
silts of both London and Paris
were determined by the advantages ollered for fording the
Thames and Seine, a choice that
was later confirmed bv defensive
Most often perhaps of all, the
sites of ancient cities weie chosen because well situated for defence. "Great regions of Asia
and Africa still have every village fortified with 11 eastwork
and palisade," and it is only 'il
late times that fortifications n
bulwarks of large Kuropeaii
cities, such a*. Paris ..ml Vienna
have bet-i converted into public
boulevards Defensive unit trading advantages woultl largely
rule the .-election of city sites
during tin building up ol llu-
great empires of the pas:. Ab
a lirst move would come the
military tamp, and then the
trading post, the lirst generally
on the line of lhe ini'uury roas,
thu other on the common ira.k
of travel. Development ol military stations would generally beat distances from each other ol
a day's march, and trading
posts would be uisinbule 1 aloig
the lines of least resistance.
It is thus evident, that the
"majority ot cities have owed
their location to the accidents
of place and cotiiluiKl.tl requirements."
On the pisiiii-n ol a capital
city the aut.io.-- .Mates the lirst
and most ini] ort jilt requisite to
be location it ar as practicable
in the centre i' iht state,
Ancient Rome is instances as
"midway of the empire and
central with the Italian peninsula" Paris, P.erlin and London are all instanced as well
placed. To apply this practically to a licld of local ir' rest,
il may be remarked that on this
continent, extension of settlement with national grow' has
left Washington and OlliJ.ita ml
of central situation, and in Hritish Columbif be capitnl is a-
bout as far as possib'- fiom the
territorial centre.
II Mr. Trim be correct in hi.
judgment, that "t-iitral location
is the prime r.qtuuite of a capital, it is po.sible lhat with the
growth of population, the posi
tion Ottawa may )et prove unsatisfactory to Lai.a.la at large
and tha' of Victoria in.if yet be
found too inconvenient for British Columbia as a whole.
