Plating the importation of cattle for Breeding purposes encouraging the importation of the Best strains. Owners of horses cattle sheep Swine and dogs pay much attention to the mat Ter seeking to improve their Stock by the admixture of Superior strains and carefully avoiding the contamination of lower grades. Surely Man is better than beasts and the nation is of More importance than the stable or the Sty. Yet Here we Are letting in a flood of the poorest and lowest human Stock in the world to taint and Breed Down our National blood. In the last fiscal year according to the official figures quoted by or. Adama there arrived at american ports immigrants. Of these were illiterate being unable either to read or to write and had less than each. That is to say More than one fifth of them were illiterate and about three fourths of them were on the very verge of pauperism. It is to be noted however that there Are great differences among the immigrants from different countries. Prom some countries there is a great proportion both illiterate and impecunious. From some they Are poor in Money but not illiterate and from some they Are both educated and provided with Means. Here Are some of worst in i London boxed of Trade gives some facts no. Immi Grants.

Director of the Imperial Institute tilt compiler of a number of valuable scientific and technical reports. This report does not pretend to be anything of a preliminary character.

Or. Dunstan Points out the fact that the British Cotton Industry is almost entirely dependent on the United states for supplies largely due to the deterioration of Indian Cotton the replace ment of Cotton by sugar Cane growing in the West indies and the continuous improvement in the Quality and fiber produced in the a cited states. He con siders the shortage of american sup plies in this country to be permanent As the Extension of a manufacture in the United states will entail a greater Home consumption. Emphasizing the consequent importance of establishing new sources of Supply or. Dunstan declares that the Paramount position of the uniter states in Cotton cultivation is Large due to the operations of the Well organized and splendidly equipped Experiment stations of the department o agriculture and considers that the bes Means of helping the British colonel to compete with the United states i the cultivation of Cotton would of prov left them with w equally juror.
