Mr. CARDIN:

There are no shipments of cattle at present, but we are maintaining two inspectors in Montreal because we do not know whether or not there will be any shipments in future, we have to keep the officers there in case of need. I am also informed that we are using them as night men in the pilot office at Montreal; we are keeping them busy although there are no inspections made.

Mr. CANTLEY:

That is a very comfortable position for them; I hope they will be able to keep it, but only about three-fifths of the vote was spent last year while the same amount is being asked this year. I do not think there is very much likelihood of that trade being resumed in the near future.
