Waging War on Dread Horse Disease For tlie purpose of conferring, on the campaign which is being waged by the Dominion government veter- inaries to stamp out a. dread disease which has gained a foothold among the herds of horses throughout th'e west, and which has ra-vaged the herds' for years, a gathering, of-Dominion-yet ei'inaries took place at Lethb'ridge last evening, at which chief of the Dpmmion pre sided. t Dr Toiriucc is on his return f'lom the Pacific and meet- ing of his inspectors here before leav- ing -for the-east again. Ray Knight a Loser This dread disease, :.which has spread amongst the horses In the ivest, has been prevalent for some years in southern.Alberta, and already iarge numbers of horses.lhave been lulled off in an effort; to. check the disease. Ray Knight of Raymond ,is probably -about, the heaviest loser in this part of the country. He.has al- had 500 horses killed with the disease, and has had something like 2000 head, in quarantine for the past two years on the Blood reserve. M lease Knight is anxious to get the re- of his herd, and last evening presented his request to Dr. Torrance, who, however, has refused to releiwe them until a further test has made to establish'. whether 'tb'eVdisaaae has been entirely eradicated or not, Dr. Torracce is bent on stampjng; ant the disease if 'possible and be- lieves that the only remedy' is. killing off tlie borseB f Air. Knight believes "that- it will be impossible to stamp out the. disease until every horse in inspected, and this, of cours'ei; would mean a tremendous undertaking. The disease has made its appearance, not oitfy in Alberta and Saskatchewan, but also in the western and hbrtbera States Dr. Torrance and his inspectors are taking every means possible of ihg with the disease, and preventing. its siread.
