Mr. BARR.

Not in Caledon, surely, for that is only a small place.

Mr. BARR.

In looking over the expenditures under 'Health of Animals,' I find

Auditor General's Report, page D-52-an item of $1,300 of salary to W. W. Stork, Brampton, inspector. It is shown that he received also expenses $814.60. Just below that, I find that W. W. Stubbs, Caledon, inspector, was paid $1,300 salary and $30 expenses. These two live within a few miles of each other.

Mr. BARR.

The cheeking is not very stringently carried out. Nobody there seems to know where he spent the $814.60. Nobody knows that he has been called to go out of the district into the country. There is another question here that troubles me. These two inspectors in Brampton and Caledon are only within a few miles of each other, and the rest of all that vast country in Dufferin county has no government inspection whatever. Of course they are following their profession, to a great extent. But nobody knows in Brampton what W. W. Stork is doing, or how this sum for travelling expenses is made up. I hope the hon. gentleman will bring down a detailed statement of that expenditure. Are both of these men allowed t.o practise their profession?
