Mr. BLACK.

When a speaker gets so undignified, iso flippant, the member for Hants (Mr. Black) has better business than to take any notice of him.

Mr. BLACK.

The shipping of apples from the port of Annapolis is one of great moment to the people of the whole of that valley. Halifax is situated quite a distance from the fruit belt, and the haul to Halifax is a long one for Nova Scotia. Annapolis is right in the fruit belt, and the difference in freight means a good deal to the apple raisers. There is about 125 miles of a haul from Annapolis to Halifax, while the quantity of fruit produced near Annapolis, with a verv short haul, will load a steamer. It is of great moment to the fruit growers that their apples should be shipped direct from the port of Annapolis rather than from Halifax, after making a long haul.

Mr. BLACK.

Before the question of the dog-fish is passed, I would like to say a word or two on behalf of that fish. I have had some experience with the dog-fish on my own table and in other homes. I consider the dog-fish one of the best edible fishes we have. Its flesh is fine in appearance, and is of excellent taste, comparing, I think, with the salmon. There is nothing against the dog-fish except its very nasty n-ame, given to it by some ignorant fishermen. It is a bad thing to have a bad name, as some people know, and its bad name is the only thing that I know of- except its lack of beauty-that is the matter with the dog-fish. I have had it served to guests at my table without letting them know what it was; and after receiving high encomiums on its taste I have told them it was dog-fish-and then they were sorry they had breakfasted. But we have no better food fish in our waters, in my opinion, than the dog-fish. Its liver is very valuable for the production of oil which is equal to cod liver oil for medicinal purpose's, and its yield is to cod as five to one. The odour of the oil of the dog-fish liver is bad, but that odour is very easily taken out, so that dog-fish liver oil and cod liver oil cannot be distinguished one from the other.
