111B FARMERS' CIRCLE. (BY ONE WITHIN IT.) STARTLING EVIDENCE. The evidence brought out by the House of Lords Committee was of the most convincing character, The Committee could not have arrived at any other conclusion than that misrepresentation was practised in a whole- sale manner by many butchers. And such .is their emphatic finding as gathered fiom ril report. "In a large West End estab- lishment professing to sell nothing but English and Scutch meat, only six sides of Scotch were said to have been sold during the vhole year, the rest being American. In >ih^r shops in the City and West End three- fourths of the beef sold as English is said to be American. Meat imported to and killed at Deptford is often labelled 'Prime Eng- ¡Ú,h.' In all these cases it appeared that the prices charged were those which would be j;istii el on y had the meat been purchased ,vhu es de at thn prices commanded by the best houit-\illed meat The American beef vÎWli. landed bears a label indicative of its origin and quality, but the Committee, with < Jllt exception, did not have brought undei the r notice a single case in which the retaii lealer failed to r m)ve these indications of origin as s)ou as the meat came into his lands." This kind of fraud appears from th-* evidence to be practised chiefly against well- o-io customerf, the customers of what ire c i led fi st-cl as- establ shments. There is a converse fraud for the poor. It was c. td by Al; j r tta;pool. ihe rejort says ihat the mi as of iiome-kiiled bulls and old ,)W8 is often sold to the poor, who are led o believe that the inferior quality is due to toieigu origin." In Lancashire, it is stated, tit- stringency of the regulations for dealing vith tu erc.iicsis in (a tie involves a loss of iiie animal out of every five. In conse- quence," the Committee reports, the pur- hf.sers prefer to buy animals landed dead after the removal of the lungs, without diich no indication of the existence of that isease can be detected." The effects of the ishonesty of a certain number of retailers vere lamented by witnesses representing very interest. everal representatives of h.e colonal export trade stated that the rade would be benefitted by a system of larking, as the colonial meat would then be airly judged by consumers on its own merits in respect of both price and quality. :'he home farmers are equally sure that if heir meat were fairly put on the market its uperior quality would ensure it a larger onsumption even at its naturally higher rice. Whichever view be correct, at any ate competition ought not to be deranged "y fraudulent misrepresentation. Of course oboly says or believes that these practices re universal amongst butchers. But it is >vious that of this dishonesty there is a reat deal, and the Committee, in view of ie evidence before it, certainly does not go '10 far in recommending that every butcher 'oaling in imported meat should be corn- el led to register himself as such. Without a.-iking any very definite recommendations, '10 report shows that there is no insuperable -ffieult.y in the way of a regulation for the larking of imported meat, and the Board of \ade ha,8 now to consider whether the ex- >5iit of the mischief does not require the •nforcement of a regulation to this effect, ,.Lieh appears to be unanimously and rdently demanded by the British farmers nd meat consumers. AGRICULTURAL DEPRESSION. A daily contemporary concludes an article on agricultural depression thus:—"When ve rettd of liiitish farmers shooting their -ti-cfcr to be spired tb'1 pain of seeing them perish of starvation, of plans to feed cattle ipon loaves of bread, and of the utilisation of weeds of the hedgerow and of prickly bitter stuffs like goree to keep the herds dive. it is high time for farmers and their tdvisHvs to seek out remedies for them- selves." The annual meeting and dinner of the ncnrporal ed Society of Inspectors of Weights and Measures were held at Ander- un'b Hotel, Fleet-street, London, on Thurs- day, Mr John Hutton, president, in the chair. Mr Jasper More, M.P., was also and in tho course of a speech re- ferred to the scale of corn, and said the only thing needed now was some sort of deputa- tion tu the Board of Trade. The Vice-Presi- of the Board of Trade was thoroughlv with them, and the President of the Board ot Agricu tuie, who, he thought, was one vith them. Their inquiry occurred just at the time when the most of the agricultnral societies were holding their meetings. They might have the deputation in the autumn, and it would help them if Mr Hutton would be one of its members The question was one the House of Commons had always tried to grapple with and had failed. It might be a tiresome one, but it was an interesting jiies'-ion. Little progress has been made with the proposed Royal Commission on Agriculture. be Government were disposed to entrust the championship to a Conservative or Liberal Unionist, but in both parties there is a marked indisposition to accept the post This will not, however, lead to the abandon- nent ,.f the Commis ion, as a Ministerialist will, it necessary, be appointed. Until a ■ hainnan is chosen the nomination of mem- tIers e tnnot be proceeded with. MONTGOMERYSHIRE SMOKY-FACED CATTLE. Mr T. F.

LIVERPOOL, TUESDAY.—The attendance of millets and dealers at the Exchange was about the average, but wheat on the spot met only a slow consumptive demand, and holders had to submit to a reduction of £ d per cental from last market day's currencies. Forward deliveries o2 Californian again failed to attract attention, and accurate quotations were impossible to give. Red American futures opened about td lower, owing to the disappointing advices received from the States, and with pressure to sell ruled easy throughout. A large business was concluded during the day, and final values showed a reduc- tion of about fd per cental as compared with those 4 of Monday evening. East Indian parctls for saipment continued purely nominal. CATTLE. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—The supply of cattle was much smaller than last week, but of sheep and lambs larger.

Best Scotch and Herefords, 4s lOd to 5s, Lincoln, 4s 6d to 4s 8d per 8lbs. WOOL. BRADFORD, MONDAY.—Demand for wool is still disappointing. Slackness in yarns and in Ameri- can exports, coupled with the gloomy outlook in the coal industry, all reflect adversely on the mar- ket, and cause want of confidence. Transactions are few and unimportant, and there is barely enough to support even the lower prices which have set in for the best wools. Deep staple wools are unchanged, but there is no eagerness to buy. LEICESTER, MONDAY.—The wool market is decidedly quiet, with no appreciable change in prices. Bright English wools are most in favour, md command the best rates. Spinners are not so well employed as recently, and in various instances 3hort time has been necessitated by the 'coal strike. Spinners are not anxious, however, and work cautiously, keeping stocks down. Rather more is doing in the hosiery trade, the improve- ment being most marked in the lambs wool iepartment.

Certainly much superior to thumb or Liquid Blue. 028 The annual meeting of the Cambrian Archseo .ogical Association opened at Oswestry on Monday )vening. Mr tanley Leighton, M.P., delivered an naugural address, in the course of which he ex- plained at lengHh how it was that what remained of ancient Welsh reco-da was removed to London for security in 1555, although, for his part, lie did not like the idea < f removing records and monuments from their local habitation. Moat of them who had visited Doleelly in days gone by would remember a low but ancient structure with stout oaken beamik which tradition assooiuted with Owen Glyndwr, and designated us his Parliament House. It was, at all events, a vistage of antiquity which might have helped to remi d the men of Merioneth of the name and the ftmo of the last champion of Welsh indepen- dence. What did the men of Dolgelly do with that ancient monument? They sold it for Sir Pryce Pryce-Jones, who at great cost removed it bodily to Newtown, where, like the Carnarvon records in Lon- don, it is s ife, but not in rita.

horns and Herefords," the latter, I be- lieve, greatly, if not entirely, composed of the Montgomeryshire Smoky-Faced breed, has been pushed and supported by influential men in days gone by, while the Mont- gomeryshire Smoky-Faced has been left to take care of itself. Now I have been breed- ing these cattle for the last six years, having bought pedigree cattle at the late sales. I find from personal experience that they are —1st, very hardy; 2nd, undoubtedly good milk-rs, (this bears out Ailsbury Dairy Co.'s report; 3rd, undoubtedly good feeders on I puor laud, without cake or corn (this again bears out Ailsbury Dairy Co.'s report; 4th, they will ulllk and feed on bad land better than Shorthorn or Hereford cattle will; 5th, the butchers will give more per lb. for these than for any other kind, because the fat and lean are more equally divided 6th, they are further more prolific, several of my cows bringii:g twiLS, and one cow has done so for the last two seasons; 7th, their hide is worth more than any other kind of cattle, being stronger, and making better leather it is most, astonishing that they have been left unnoticed so long, indeed until they are nearly extinct. But I trut that it is not too late to preserve a valuable poor man's beast, which will thrive 1m poor pasture and produce milk with a hig i percentage of fat iiid butter-making prop-rfi s. Several of my cows milk all the ve r round until the? ca/Vd again, and at the same time ar iboth fat and well. None of tiem get any c ike or coin in any way, and their condition speaks for itselr. WEATHER AND CHOPS. The weather of the putt week has be n exceedingly favourable for the important wo.k now c,cupyi,.g the chief attention on the farms. Harvesting operations were greatly facilitated by thndrv reliable nature of tLte work, and the work is now at a very forward stage. The crop has been cut, and so far secured in the pink of condition. The only regret is that the task of in-gathering is not a more arduous one ia respect to bulk. In a few cases there is no room for com- plaint on this head, but generally the dis- satisfaction is too well founded. The quality of the if ruin will, as a rule, be of a high standard. It i3 admirably matured and linely-coioured qualities greatly desired in the market samples. The fodder supply will be universally s«3ant. The blank hay crop aggravates the shortness materially, which will be all the more felt that what there is is appetisingty rich and sweet. The decond crop of hay promises to belie earlier expectations and ardent hopes. In weight It will be extremely disappointing. Pasture also fails to satisfy anticipations and wishes Tho fields, in pleasing contrast to their blighted appearance in July and midsum- mer, present a green, healthy acpect; but, notwithstanding this, grass is by no means plentiful. Indeed, although of beautiful green colour, many of the pastures are lamentably bare, Buth crops are promising in most parts. The weather recently has greatly favoured these crops, and pushed GllOill on in rapid fashion. Potatoes, too, present an improved appearance. FRAUDULENT TRADING IN MEAT. The report issued last week by the House of Lords Select Committee "On the Market- ing of Foreign Meat, &c. brings to light a deplorable state of affairs in the meat trade. The practices that are alleged to have been indulged in so freely and so generally are nothing short of disgraceful to the nation. Dishonesty would appear to have been one of the leading features of the meat trade in recent years. The unsuspecting consumer has been cheated on all hands, and in the most deliberate fashion. Respect for the truth and the interests of their customers have had a remote place in the butchers' rules of trade conduct. Honourable princi- ples and conduct were completely disre- garded that a little extrA. gain might be de- rived from their nefarious actions. The report will, no doubt, convey startling intel-1 ligence to a large section of the public, as it assurtdlv will unwelcome and discomfiting information to the members of the trade. To us and many others it occasions no great surprise. It rather confirms grave sus- picions and confident anticipations. In ex- exploring and exposing the deplorable state of the meat trade the Lords have earned the permanent, gratitude of the British public at large. The producer and consumer of meat are alike benefited by the investigation, while the occasional honest trader will also benefit by the correcting influence of the exposure. We hope the matter will not be allowed to rest even at the so far satisfactory stage it has attained. Legislation is greatly needed and urgently called for, and full jus- tice will not have been measured out to the I wide and important interests concerned until 1 some stringent rules are drawn up and fn. 1 forced by the Government. Now that suf- J ficient light has been shed upon the unscru- pulous mysteries of the trade to arouse pub- lic interest and imagination, it is to be hoped < the matter will not again be allowed to fall I into the background until the subject has 1 been fully debated and satisfactorily dis- posed of. 1
