BUTTE I-Z-]J'UY.'I-NG-CAVEAT EMPrAR Mr W. Vaughan George asked the Inspector of Weights and Moasuros (Super- intendent Smith) whether lie had tested the weights in the Market. Superintendent fcimitli said he h id done so. Mr W. Y auglian George said that butter was sold in tho market by what were supposed to be c. pounds"; he wanted to know whether these had bee-i tested. The Clerk said that this was no part of the Inspector's duty. Mr W. Vaughan George asked how it came to be ro part of the Inspector's duty to do so ? The Clerk said it was for the purchaser to see that a packet sold as a pound was a full pound he might insist in its being weighed, and it was the duty of the Inspector to see that tho weights used were properly stamped. If anyone went into a grocer's shop and asked for a pound of sugar, he might have lialf-a-pouud given him. It was the buyer's look out to see that ho got what he asked for. Mr Walter Lloyd said he thought it too hard on the tradespeople of the town that they should be charged for the verification and re-stamping of their weights and measures, when they were all correct. The Clerk said that the law required the weights and measures to be verified at intervals. The law allowed a charge to be made for verifying and stamping; but he was not in a position to advise as to whether a charge could be made for verification alone. He should be happy to ask the opinion of tho Board of Trade on the point. Superintendent Smith said that the fees chargeable for stamping varied from 31 for a 56 Ib weight to a half-penny for smaller weights. He had tasted the butter r> in the market, and fouud the pounds too heavy in each case. He attributed that to the salt getting embedded in the weights. 0
