HOUSE OF LORDS THURSDAY. The Lord Chancellor took his seat on tbe wool. sack at a quarter-past four o'clock. SALE OF HORSEFLESH. Earl BEAUCHAMP. in moving the second reading of the Horseflesh (Sale for Food) Bil1, stated that it had passed through the House of Commons, and that its object was to provide that no person should buy horseflesh under any misconception as to what it was. So far as it was possible to deal in a like manner with such widoly-dissimilar matters as margarine and horseflesh, tho bill followed the lines of the Margarine Act. Forty years ago the question of the use of horseflesh as human food was first mooted, and some few years ago a banquet was held in Paris for the purpose of demonstrating its value and palatability. He was told that borRdieh was not unpalatable, but )f that he knew nothing personally. It was easily tiistinguisbablo from boef by the fat, but it was said that'dealers were in the habit of removing the fat and substituting the fat of beef. He was informed that in Manchester and Salford there was a large consumption of horstflevih, and a strong corroboration of that was furnished by the fact that whereas two years ago the managers of the Manchester Zoological Gardens paid 25i for the carcase of a horse, the price had now risen to £3, The bill would not interfere with honest trade. There was no desire b interfere with the sale of horseflesh, but all that was desired was that it should not be sold as beef, and that its vendors should not be able, by the deception, to undersell honest butchers. The but was read a second time. Their lordships rose at 10 minutes to five o'clock.
