VIC ABAHOIR IS WHAT SOI STOCK SIPPERS ASK Necessity of Prime Food Law Regulations Are to be Complied With jDurjing the next month develop meats, arising out of the recent order whereby all meats to be shipped to British Columbia must be government inspected, may be looked for which win either l^suit In the early erection of a city abattoir or the permanent abandonment of such a' scheme as a municipal enteri>rlBe; At the Board of Trade meeting on .Thursday night the question of meat inspection was broached and it iivas decided that It possible something should be done to relieve meat shippers in,this district in the, matter: of inspection. On aPriday President IveS'wired to! Hon. Martin ;U3utrell, � minister of agrl; culture,, jwith the. result that Gavan,,! one* of ithe government's 'inspectors was in the, city on''Saturday to inveBtigate. It is the desire of'the butcher*- aAd' the shippers in the city to have a mea^ inspector permanently located here.' To make it possible for hiiq to do his^j duty, it would be necessair? ^hat there be a central abattoir where all killing might be done. Mr. Cavan met with the butchers and meat shippers,on Saturday, but nothing was f done other than to talk the matter over, and endeavor to find some solution of the difficulty. ': All the butchers are in favor of a public'abattoir, and would bo v.-illing to help maintain such a>place. But they would ask that the city bufid It.' It would probably cost about 16,000,to' �7,000, not including the site, but the butchers state that they would be,-wUl-ing to pay enough for the:us�.of It to cover all expenses and the interest on the debentures. , Two years ago City Sanitary Inspec-; tor Vallance recommended the Immediate construction of an abattoir very strongly, but the city was' not then in favor of it. Neither were the butchers for the meat inspection clause of the Pure Foods Act was not then being enforced. ;: However, it is.likely that the whole matter will remain in abeyance,for the next thirty days to await developr meats in other directions. . Mr.,Cavan' left Saturday night for Pinoher Creek where there Is also an'agitation for. the location of a meat inspector there; the meat shippers experiencing: the: s&me trouble as those of the Lethr bridge district.
