Liberal

Mr. FISHER.

Then I can assure the hon. gentleman that any animal that has been in contact with that horse in cars, stables or yards through which it has passed will be carefully watched, and the cars, etc., carefully investigated 'and disinfected immediately. That is part of the orders and practice of our department. Whenever any animals have been in contact with an animal infected with glanders, they are all watched, and we see that all places where the infected animal has been are disinfected. No doubt a report of this case has been sent to the department. I have not heard of it myself, but I have no doubt my officers have heard and I shall make inquiries.
