Mr. GILMOUR.

It is necessary to protect the dealer as well as the farmer. If the dealer buys from an outside manufacturer, before the binder twine is allowed to come into the country, care should be taken to see that it complies with the law. If the twine is manufactured in this country it should be inspected before it leaves the factory. Many dealers would not be able to tell how many feet there were to the pound in a ball of twine, and would not, therefore, know whether it complied with the law or not. It is unfair to the dealer to place such a responsibility upon him unless you provide for an inspection such as I have suggested.

Mr. GILMOUR.

It is rather the manufacturer's duty to see that the twine is marked according to law and that it contains the number of feet stamped upon the tag. Have the inspectors not time to go around and inspect all the factories and see that the provisions of the law in regard to the length of the twine are complied with ?

Mr. GILMOUR.

I think it absolutely necessary. This gives very wide powers,' and we do not know where we are going to begin or end.

Mr. GILMOUR.

Is this Bill merely for the purpose of registration, or does it go further ? Will it give powder for the sale of seeds ?

Mr. GILMOUR.

How can you compare the two ? Live stock continues, the animals registered are continued, but the seed must perish before being reproduced. We should know the conditions under which registration shall be continued. They ought to be set out in the Bill.
