"Now I have referred to .this for a
purpose. You will notice that these
condemned animals are at once re?
moved by the owners and disposed of
in accordance with the State law or the
municipal ordinances. Now, what is
done with these condemned animals?
It Is not reasonable to suppose that all
of these condemned animals are ren?
dered Into fertilizers, as they should
be: and while I would not assert that
it Is so. it Is not unreasonable to ask
what is there to prevent the sending of

NEWPORT NEWS SLAUGHTER?
"Now, Is an inspector necessary?"
IVot ions ago by accident live steers
tha-t were badly affected with lumpy
jaw were found In the yards of one of
the slaughter-houses at Newport News.
It was an accident that they were
found and there was no law by which
they could be condemned and only the
fear of public opinion Stopped them
from being slaughtered and sold on the
market at Newport News. These steers
were returned to Richmond and I am
informed that they were sold for
RETURNED TO RICHMOND.
"Not long since a car of cows con?
demned by the tuberculin tesl in South

of Richmond. The secretary of the

expected n-.e io protect the people of

What are the ste;;s necessary to secure

conditions such that an Inspection I

by having a central point where all
animals may be-seen. This can only
be done at a union or public stot k
