For proof they point to the report of the Civil Service Commission. But, along with this general, line of attapk, there has taken place a series of separate j skirmishes over the new system of accounting f which the Minister of Marine and Fisheries has introduced into his department with a view to 'keeping a closer, check on They indicate-a most substanfi CANADIAN HAY FED CATTLE (From Stock Rt- porter, Chicago, April 24.)

Mr. Joe Plant, and partner of operated by the railways or elevator companies, the officials of the govern- ment have nothing to do except at- tend to certain specific duties, which are- required to be performed. for the protection of the public. They would thus be enabled to perform these du- ties with efficiency and certainty. The resolution, it is said, will take the form of statue during the coming ses- sion of Parliament. It is found that there is great difficulty in adjusting claims for shortages in quantities of wheat shipped. This 'is a prolific source of loss to the shippers and urgently required a remedy. It is therefore resolved: 1. That section 2099 of warehouse and grain laws of the State of Minne- sota be enacted. 2. That the railway commission be authorized to make rules .and regu- lations additional to the said pro- in Canada that gives the same class of services. The cost was high; but, if the value received were equally high, as the evidence conclusively proves, the department has done well and not ill. Under the new system the opera- tions of the department in different parts of the country are registered; and, by the exercise of ordinary busi- ness knowledge, the Minister or his deputy can see where things are not going right.

And he is entitled to public to the abuse of the Opposition, who, while condemning the Minister for the condition reported in the depart- ment by the Civil Service Commission condemn him still more for the 10- icims made by him in the accounting system, which is the very foundation of the conduct of the department busi- ness.

Explain the Surprise Little Toronto, May a citizen at an early hour this morning, pro- ceded in the half light of early dawn to whittle a portion of bread from the loaf his attention was drawn to a certain scraping sound which follow- ed the motions of the slicnr. Taking the two sections of the loaf over to the window, he allowed the first rays of the newly risen sun to fall upon them. What he he declares, spoiled his appetite. The scraping sound had been caused by the passing of the bread knife to and fro through the anatomy of a mouse which had been baked in the loaf. The loaf with its well roasted en- closure, was laid before Dr. Sheard at the City when that gentleman first arrived at his office. He imme- diately set the machinery of his sys- tem in-, motion, arid it was not long until the origin of the delicacy traced to the bakeshop of one H.
