say the intention of the Company
had  been     quite  misunderstood.    He
one man
\ould ho enough,, but he would be
able to ohtain a few convictions
and this would have an astonishing
effect on poachers. Tn Vancouver
last year the citizens paid for
two .men to act in the capacity of

nionths before the opening of the

were     obtained   and     as     a     result

think this wopld result fav

of game should be executed by a professional.

would exhibit the birds, while they

The quest ion of- thc means-of pre

engaged 'in actual prospecting, shoot

his opinion of the imposition of a
gun tax :>Ir. Williams said he rather 'favored a gun license, as it
would be the means of ohtaining
funds to help pay a ga'ine warden.
He believed any money derived futile government by imposing gun

Sydney Fisher, on being interviewed regarding the ��������� reported prevalence of glanders in horses in British Columbia, stated that the disease had, during the~ past fall and  winter, affected a considerable number'of horses in Vancomer, and the  Oicanagan Valley, while suialL isolated outbrea's had Leen detected and  idealt with in \anous other" parts of  the Pacific province He was -of the  opinion, however, that, tlie disease  was now under control and that the  measures adopted by his 'officers"  would shoitly be successful in ach-  v iewng its complete eradication.^  Questioned as to the policy now  followed, the MiniS'tcr said that, after endeavoring for se\ eral years to  deal in an eflecti e manner with con  stantly mcieasing out1, reals of glau-  deis, he had found it necessary -'.  iUO'l to asf Pailiament to era; ov.er  bini to oida the slaughter of all  all ecu I j mm a Is, mc Luting those  which leactjd to Uie Mallein lest  without showing clii'ical symptom's  and to pav com* tn-alien for them  at the r t* of two-th rds of the actual" lahu* of Hit- .1 mix -i.l when in a  st.i/te of health, such value, however,  being liniilol in 11k case of oidiiury  horses ..to $150, and jn (lie c; s ��������� of  puresbral  h.rses tp,$3;0.  previous t<> 1' e inauguration of  this policy, a system of testing ar..:l  rctesting contact horses with malle-  ��������� in had t.'een tried for some time,  ' but'. had been fontr-i ineffective in  stoppvng ��������� the spread of tlie disease.  Since''the adoption of tie new plan  satisfactory progress has been ma-  andr.while the expense is li'cly tube heavy for a few years, he has  no doubt that, by consistently following the. present imethods, mf.st  gratifying'*results .will eventually be  obtained,  The/ system  pursued   is  as  follows:  When the presence of glanders  is  detected  in  a stable,   the  diagnosis    is  generally verified by  the mallein test  although   this is   not  in all   cases necessary.     If /he disease is shown  to  be  undoubte/ily  glanders,  all     horses  which  have teen  in  contact  with affected   animals   are submitted   to thp  mallein test,  those which react "Join  slaughtered,  while  those ,v.hieh  show  under trsfc,    no  evidence    of  disease  are,   after   a short  period  of probn- )  tion  released    from   all  restrictions,  and the owners are recommended to  ta >t every precaution in introducing  new stock.  'i here is a provision in "the regulations whereby owners of animals  wh' eh react but show no clinical  symptoms, ' m'ay, on forfeiting' all  compensation, retain reactors under  n..t:-ijrantii<nie -for subsequent tests.  Such animals must, however, be  slaughtered, if continuing to react,  within four months of the first lest,  'ihe Minister further stated that a  considerable percentage of horses  which respond slightly to tho first  Us!, subsequently cease altogether to  react. For some time veterinary au-  thcritics have been divided as 1o  whether such ceased reactors are  really free from glanders or not, but  the concensus of evidence obtained  by his ollioers during the extensive  Us-ting '.-operations which have now  been curried on for. several .years,  is to the'effect'that many of these  horses remain affected with the disease in a latent form tnl are capable of-trnnsimtting it to other animals, in this -way causing fresh outbreaks. Such horses arc especially  dan&erons on account of II13 tendency almost invariably shown by owners to dispose of them at the first  available opportunity, when falling  into Ihe hands of unsuspecting persons, tliey froiqiuently introduce the  diseti.se among their new stable companions.  Questioned as to the  efficacy of the  mnllciri  test, Mr.   Fisher  stated that  t'le    highest      veterinary   suthorities  ; ere agreed  that mallein  was,a most  re liable  diagnostic  agent,   and     that  in  at  least 9G  per  cent,   of  the animals   tested, it could  be depended upon   to  demonstrate existence  or, nonexistence  of glanders..      In  proof    of  tin's  statement  thc Minister cited lhe  ervpejience in Ciroat  Britain, where  ;  stronicr effort is   being made by horse-  owners  to  bring about  the introduction   of  the   policy  now   followed    by.  C'nnada, instead of  that now in force,  which   provided   for  the  slaughter   of  only  such animals    as show   cli.n;r-:'' ,  symptoms.     Under the latter  policy, l  in spite  of all    efforts,  the   nurmbcr '  of horsrs killed each  year shows     ? I  steady    increase, nn  progress     wha.l   '  ever   being made   in   the  work  of  it- '  ���������abdication. j  The   following ������xtracf from  a    1  "GlanUjis is admittedly on the iii-  "crease and it is1 time tiiat some,  "radical measures were, takeu to c-6n-  "trol the disease. In 190.4 there  Vwere only 592 Oatin-'saks^reported,  "hiit in 190-1 these had increased to  ','1529, and 2,(i58 horses were k-illc-i'  '.'as glandere;i. More power- ought  "to be gi>, en to the Veterinary ln-  "spectors t0 test the iu-con'tacV  "liorsies >vill mallein; as by this  "agent an almost infallible diagnos-  "is can be. made within 24 hours, or  "at most 48 hours. The expense, al-  "thongh great the lirst year; and  '.'wiliere a |.ic\ciitable disease, which  "also causes t':e deaths of nuanbers  "of human ,LeJifas' each year, is1 con-  "cerned, the cost ought certainly  "not to-be considered too seriously  "as the. reason why it should not be  "taVen, thoroughly  in hand."  The most serious source of danger  to Canadian horses lies in tlje co  tinuous importation of infecteti animals from the Western States. While  inspection at the boundary is enforced, it is, in many cases, impossible  to defect the existence of glanders  without the aid of niallein. Although considerable inconvenience to  import;rs would result, it would almost ani.ear as if it wouW *be nec-  essary to ma e provision, for the  testing of all horses introduced from  the other side.  Jn many   states   of the    Union,   i.<  serious..attempt is made  by the    authorities t<5 deal in   an effective way  with  outbreaks of glanders, and as a  result  a good    deal  of private  testing is  carried    on,  and   the reactors  being  sul:sjquently     disposed    of   as  soon as'.possible.     As such horses are  sold   at a  sacrifice,     they  are  as   a  rule   quickly  picked  up,  and  there is  no-    doubt  that    some of them    arc  brought into  Canada,   either by  persons  ignorant    as to their true con-  jdition  or unscrupulous enough to run  ' the risk   of  having    them pass     inspection at  the. boundary: before   the  disease h.-.s  developed  sufficiently   to  admit ol* its existence being detected  'by ordinary   methods.  :    Another serious danger  lies  in  thc  ifacility   with  which,  under     modern  (conditions    of  transportation,    num-  I hers of horses may  be moved     from  I place  to place.      While in  communi-  . 1 ids  where new Ihorsrs  are but   scl-  .(lom  introduced, immmnity from glan-  Jders may be  loag enjoyed, there-   is  'always    serious    risk in  any    place  niand for horse flesh, are responsible  for inany serious outbreaks in districts where glanders was formerly  unknown. '.' It is not at all uncommon for the inspectors to find a  chain of infective centres which tan  , be directly traced to a consignment  of horsts ongijuat'iig/in some distant part of the conn try, and this in,  spite of tlie fact that the animals  may ha������,e undergone careful clinical  inspection prior -to" shipment.  . Kefeiring to alleged dissatisfaction  in --'British' Columbia with the wonc  of his officers, the Minisk-r replied  that there had undoubtedly been  some irritation shown/by'��������� hor&c-owiters' and others who complaintd that  the slaughter of diseased horses was  'riot in all cases necessary,*��������� and thai  individuals w;erc Loing subjected to  serious loss and inconvenience through^  having- their "animals killed.  I Mr. Fisher, thought that this feeling, was largely due, to the fact that  the people of British Coluni'bia had,  fortunately for themselves, never experienced the terrible losses ca:.s:d  by outbrculs of glanders, when proper sanitary measures are not enforced.  It was therefore perhaps only natural that some people should think  the present policy rather severe, although with n-.orc experience of the  (disastrous effects of the dise-isa when  left uncontrolled, they would havo  1 loo'.ed upon things somewhat dilTer-  ently.  In some  other parts of  (lie    Dominion where    people have  for    many  'years  been heavy  losers tli rough   the  glanders,   the system     of    slaugnter  'and  compensation   is  giving 'satisfac-  - tion, and intclligicinl, owners   freely   cx-  . press  theii: approval of the new     arrangement.-  The ] resent, policy was onljv ado.p.t-  'ad after the most careful and serious consideration'of lhc whole question, and a full realization of the  responsibility which is involved.  volved.  Glanders   is a  most dangerous  ami  insidious    disease,    and   with     sliich  one' cannot,   especially  under   modern  conditions,     be    controkd      ,by    half  measures.     The system now followed.  in   Canada    is  approved  by  all     (he  liighest  vetcri-niiry. auMiorities ! in  the  civili'/ed   world,     while   Uie  rate     of  coinr-cns-ition    authorized    ]iy  parliament    is   much more ec-neroi'S'   lliaii  that  prevailing in any other country.  it is, 01" course, impossible to enforce sanitary measures of any kind  without inflicting more or hs.s inconvenience and peihaps hardship upon  some individuals, .but on the "other  hand, ih so individuals, and, with  them, many othcis, would eventually  suffer greater loss if animal plagues  were pcrmiitsJ to spread  unchecked.

Mr. W. D.

This  log jam .commenced to form last  fall, and 'unless removed;-; now would  effectually bloblc the salmon in  their efforts    to  ascend  thc  river.  K is expected that over two thousand "ill-netting licenses will Ih* issued this season in the northern dis  trict.

Northern canneries are now making preparations for ������hc season's  work, and crews for the overhauling of many oi thc cannery plants  are now eithei in the north or ou  their way there. Tinplate for cans  and general supplies for the cannei-  ies are being rushed North by  small steamers, and by the end of  this month canmaking will have  been commenced  at  many  points.  While Fraser Kiver Canncrs do viot  expect a very large year the-, northern men are looking for good results. Early in June the sockeyes  should make their appearance on  the mainlandcoast to the north of  Vancouver Island. and by that-  time boih canncrs and fishermen  will  be' prepared  for  them.  Two new canneries will be operated in the ��������� North this. year. These  are bolh at Rivers Inlet, one bo-  longing to Dawson & Buttimct. and  the other to Bain & Wilson. The  latter was wiped out last week by  a baby tornado, but is now being-  rebuilt, and will be ready for op  cralion     when  the   fish arrive.
