Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LETHBRIDQE DAILY HERALD, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1909. HON. W. A. WEIR A very desirable member of the Quebec W. STEVENS Chairman of Montreal Harbor board, who it is said recently married an Italian notable. FIGHT BOVINE TUBERCULOSIS IB view of the recent appointment of an International Commission to consider the control of Bovine Tub- erculosis in the United States and Canada, the following extract from a late issue of the Veterinary Record of London, Eng., is of considerable in- terest to Canadian stock owners Tuberculosis "An instructive moral can be drawn from the comparison of the two ut- terances upon Tuberculosis which we printed last week. Both were by men having, exceptional knowledge of the disease, who, speaking to verr differ- ent audiences, dealt with the ques- tion" from equally different stand- points. "Sir John M'Fadyean, addressing an audience of agriculturalists in Cheshire, avoided the question of leg- islation, and confined himself to ex- plaining the disease itself, and advis- ing the individual owner how best to combat it. It is needless to say that this task was admirably performed but some who heard the address, and many more who rea-d the report of it, must have wondered how many of those receiving such advice even from -so high an likely to seriously attempt its adoption. An answer to that query is to be found in the paper bv Dr. J. G-. Ruther- ford.the Veterinary Director General of Canada, read at the International Congress on Tuberculosis at Washing- ton. This is not a popular lecture, but an expert's contribution to the deliberations of experts. It deals, not with individual .effort against the disease, but with the far more diffi- cult (question of how best to organize national effort. Two points stand out clearly, an-d will be endorsed by all practical men. A national cam- paign against. bovine tuberculosis aid- ed by compulsory ever its be a much more 'difficult- undertaking than many theorists even vet suppose. But no effective control of the disease is pos- sible to the present generation, with- out compulsory legislation. "Undoubtedly such lectures as that just delivered by Sir John M'Fadyean do much good by enlightening the really sensible and honest stockown- They stimulate a few men to fort; but, for a long time to come, they can only influence the minority of agriculturists. Their efiect upon the ignorance and indifference of the majority is very slow, and can- not influence the not inconsiderable section capable of wiliullv concealing contagious disease. Compulsion is necessary for the two latter classes. "When compulsion is adopted, the ig- norant and careless owner will learn' something of the disease, and the law regarding it, for his own protection, while the unscrupulous one can be dealt with as he deserves. A year of coercion has more popular efiect j than a decade of argument and per- suasion but, while scientists are struggling to educate the masses with regard to tuberculosis, the authori- ties withhold the one assistance need- iful. The fact that that assistance j could be given at anr moment makes the delay more inexcusable. against tuberculosis, when it does commence, is not likely to be very drastic at first, -but we now know so much about the dis- ease that our nrst s.teps, if slow, should be sure. When notification of clinical tuberculosis is made compul- sory, the first real advance will have been made. That step would enable the most dangerous animals to be dealt with at once, while giving the veterinary inspector a footing upon farms where such animals had exist- ed. Its actual efiect upon the spread of the disease would be great; its educational effect upon farmers would be still greater. And the legal pow- ers for the step exist already the advance could be made at once, by the simple scheduling of clinical tub- erculosis by the Board of Agricul- ture. "Of course the opposition to sched- uling comes from the owners of pedi- gree stock, and it is noteworthy that these men form the chief obstacle to progress in Canada also. Dr. Ruther- ford's outspoken reference to breeders of pure stock in his own country should carry great weight throughout America, and may, we hope, be not without efiect here. Pure bred herds 'are the principal agents in dissemin- ating disease' in Canada. Probably the same truth applies here. In Can- ada, also the owners of pure stock far from assisting the campaign against tuberculosis, generally do their best to thwart it. Certainly this applies here also. Legislation against tuberculosis involves a great- er immediate financial loss to the pedigree owner than to the average farmer, and the selfish opposition of a few influential agriculturists has hitherto prevented effective legisla- tion in this country. "Foreign buyers are rapidlv realiz- ing the condition of our English herds, and before long the pedigree breeders, their market for diseased attle gone, will cry for legislation. But in the meantime the disease con- tinues its ravages amongst" cattle practically unchecked, annually caus- ing an enormous waste, and the loss of not a few human lives. Surely the government will look a little ahead, and take action before pedi- e breeders join in asking for it." WILL REMAIN LOYAL TO MRS. EDDY New York, Nov. Augusta E. Stetson has announced her complete submission to the Boston officials of the Christian Science movement and denied she intended to secede from the Christian Science Church.
