From time to timo the Provincial Department of AgricuHuro han re -ceived notice of; outbreaks of anthrax in cattle from various iNsctions of the Province. This is not a disease coming under the provisions of the Contagious Diseqscs Act of the Dominion Government. As the provis -ions of this act are enforced by the Veterinary Surgeons of the R.N.W.M. P., acting under the direction of the Dominion -Department of Agriculture, thane oflfcers have taken no action wrth ragard to-, destroying the car -casus of animAls that ihavo died Irom anthrax. As It is a very con^^agious disease, and the germs arc liable to spread from dead animals, it is absolutely necessary that carcases be buried in order to stamp out the spread of the disease. Where the Dominion law fail.mL'nt to the Orient, principally to (!bina," to-duy declared Mr. .1. F. Ua.l, manager of the Vancouver iMilling and Grain Com -pany, in answer to on enquiry. 'Tiiese wiquiries were all for hard spring whoat grown in the Northwest. All that business coiild be handled because the people who are enquiring have some of our goods now, and know our prices. Wo have shippry noticeable fact was that most compreherisive references were made to the election of Hon. W. S. Fielding, finance Minister, and the alleged corruption which occurred. The fact, however, that Mr. Fielding practically Ignorod and swept away everything that hapr>encd in the election in question and submitted himself again for re-election, and was returned by .an overwhelming majority was too indinerent a circumstance to demand a reference. At tite conclusion of his address Mr. Borden submitted a resolution which was calculated to condemn corrupt practices in so far as they related to Liberal elections, and it also was cunningly worded, so as to constitute a confession of certain undefined acts of corruption in the election of certain prominent members of the Oovem-mcnt. amount of our grain will bo used by the mills in the Orient in the future, In fact they are very anxious to se-. cure our grain. They mix it with the sorter wheats they secure from Australia and Puget Sound, and It adds strength to their product. , "The trouble with us is that we ore unable to got this wheat, aswhat surplus tlicro was-probably about two million bushels of milling wheat in Allierta-was in the greater part moved east last fall because of lack of elevator, capacity. There avo largo amounts still in Alberta, but they are being held for milling purposes. The surplus stock for export Is now any in his room?" "No, suh," replied Sam. "i don't see how he stands it." "Well suh," said Sam, "I reckon for corruption, ami uiirid great laugh ter the Finance Minister reminded the House that Hon. Mr. Foster, was unseatofl in New Ilrunswick, and also the predecessor of Mr. Borden ns memiber for Halifa.x, Mr. Thomas E. Kinney, was also unseated. Mr. Fielding said he could give niany more examples of the  wrongdoing of Conservatives in elections, but ho had quoted enough to sustain his contention. Mr. Fielding made a strong point very near to the subject at issue, when ho informed the Hou.se that Dr. Weldon, his Inlc Conservatike opponent at Quwn's publicly staled that he had bom offered a constituency at the last gonorol election, and consented to run provided the Conser -vatives .would conduct on honest election. The Conservatives said they would not do so, and he declined to run. At this point Mr. A. K. McLean of Lunenburg, N.B., rose and said', t can testify to those words, 1 heard them used by Dr. Weldon. Mr. Sinclair of Ouysboro, N.S., also rose and said: I confronted him with those words at a public meeting at Ixtckport, and he did not deny them. Mr. Fielding continued that ho had never heard them denied, and now we have, .said he. the leader of the Opposition coming into the House with the profession that his party is holier than the Liberal party and un-dertalclng to lecture us on our own pollical morality, when one of tlie most eminent Conservatives declares that he would not be a candidate lie-cause his own party deliberately refused to accept an lioiiest election. The Finance Minister concluded a convincing argument In these words: "1 realize there is need of electoral reform, but w6 know from experience there ore great difficulties in accom-'plishing such reform. 'The resolution of the leader, of the Opposition Is couched in terms I cannot approve of, and while I �i4ga. April aotb, 1007. have ut least five million bushels of wheat for export this year. Wo are canildent that a largo part of that surplus grain will move to Vancouver. While ' tho demand from the Orient is now making itself manifest 1 believe that in the future Mexico win take quantities of our . highest grade grain*."

Minister of Finance, who seems to have enjoyed the particular enmity of the Opposition, probably in consequence of his notable victory in Queen's Shel-bourne, N.S., followed Mr. Borden, and quickly placed himself on record as being in favOr of purity in elections, and sympathizing warmily with any well considetvd measure designed to accomplish that result. He, however, doprocatcerience with the ungratefulness of the farmers who ask for credit that it Js a wonder they have not opened their eyes to the condition of olTairs long ago. One day a farmer goes to the local country merchant and receives several dol -lars worth . on account, while the next day he may send his loose change to the mail-order house for some trash advertised as a gigantic bargain. This is just a cose of the retailer injuring his trade by giving credit. One of the mo.st i-cccnt features of the fight against the credit evil isthe combination of all tho retail stores in one town, as in tho case of Cart-wright, Mon., to whidi wp referred in a recent issue. The storckoopers there have have amalgamated under the name "Merchants' Limited," and their progress is lM$ing watched with eager interest. The retail merchants are beginning to see where they stand and what tlioy arc up against unless they use the mail-order ammunition in conii-botlng the mail-order trade. The chief feature of that ammunition is "selling for cash."-Tho Now West Trade.
