At present if the cattleman of Western Canada wishes to sell his beef in Great Britain he has one of two options. He must kill it and freeze or cure it here aiid then ship it. But he has soon found that his frozen or cured meat cannot com- pete with the fresh beef killed at the market.. His other option is to shivi the cattle alive. li he does this the law requires that the cattle he klleld: 'immediately upon arrival. Cat- tle, that travelled half waj around the world and killed as soon as they., reach port are not in shape to make good beef, even if they wer in prime Condition when leaving th stall or the prairie. They are in good sound condition on arriving but not condition. A few days or weeks of grazing or stall feeding would put them in the prime condi- tion such as they were in when they started on their long trip. This is all tha'u the Canadian cattle shipper asks. He denies that his cattle are diseased and that the British stock would run any risk by having his cattle feeding for a time after am' val and maintains that this argu- ment of the British stockman is bas- ed and built on falsehood merely to shut out competition. For many years the Hon. Sydney Fisher has been endeavoring without avail to have the embargo removed. But now that the consumer in Bri- tain has realizes! that he has been paying more than he ought for his beef awl made the government listen to his complaint, there is hopp that the embargo will be removed and the cattlemen of Greater Britain get a square deal.

MacDougall T and J. W. Chaiiibre wore called upon to explain why there is such a largo quantity of American bacon im- ported when the price of hogs is so low in Alberts. The farmers have been under the impression that this is being done to bear down the prices of hogs by curtailing the demand for those of superior quality. The evi- dence of both prntk-men was to the. effect that the American bacon im-! ported was for tho northern trade, j where the keeping quality was the j J first consideration. The American bacon was especially cured for this purpose, and therefore nrrfem-d. TV- qu-ility of the hogs had nothing t-> do with this. The J. Y. Griffin Co. will probably install this system of; curing or nny other concern that chaoses could do so, and then the! mr.rkct would be ?nppliod without im poriinjr from across the line. Tho commission tried to learn at what i price American bnccn is laid down at Edmonton wholesale houses, but i wns not successful. This is an im-j portant point, as it may detormine the cause of the present high re- j tiii! for uncon. j Of course, hor.ip bacon will never J sure of a good price until the deal-1 era arc certain of a regular and sufri-' T cient supply in the province to war-1 rant abandoning the American ar-i tide.

Dad's "Council has shown re- markably good judgment in being down-to-datc and the city as whole will be much disappointed if they fail down on this. The police force have been having n. good deal of trouble with the peo- ple who want police protection. It'3 a mighty funny, thing that the mer- chants and ofllccmen of the city can- not do anything for their own pro- tection. There are a dozen or more firms who repeatedly leave their doors and windows unlocked: or with such fastenings as a kid could go through. When Chief Gillespte first took office he made a special request that a light be left burning as an as- sistance to the police in their patrol duty. But this has not been done by a great many. It would them right if their places were brok- en into. These people have no right to ask impossible things of the po- lice and the least they can do is to leave a light. It may be that some are so stingy that they do not want to go to the expense of keeping n little eight candle powc-r light burn- ing. It might cost them the price of a few drinks.
