Mr. BLAKE:

If these two clauses are struck out, the usefulness of the Bill ceases. The manner of issuing the license is very important, and: the man who packs the hay should he entrusted with the power of grading it. He is there all the time the hay is being pressed, and he can very easily grade it satisfactorily. If he attempts to put the grade down too low, the farmer will attend to that. If there should be added- to this Bill a section penalizing the packer if he gives too high a grade, any difficulty in this section would be overcome. If the name of the packer or his license number, and the name of the man who produced the hay and sold it, were on the tag, there would he something Dy which to trace the hay should! there be any packing of straw or other objectionable
material. These two sections 340E and 340F, are the crux of the Bill, and the usefulness of the measure depends upon their retention according to the suggested amendment.
