Fraud might occur in the substitution of ordinary seed for selected seed by one or other of the persons through whose hands it passes, but there is in the Act a clause providing penalties for a fraud of this kind just in the same way as the law operates in regard to animals. A man may buy a registered animal, the animal may die and he may substitute another 'animal and pass it on, but if he does so-ha (will be committing a fraud in which case he will be liable to penalties. I do not think there would be any more danger in regard to this than there is in regard to live stock. Any safeguard that it is possible to invent will be invented to prevent such fraud. That will have to be a detail of the regulations of the association.
