follows, for the year 1913. 
The process of renovation and re-arrangement, which was begun in 1919, has 
continued during the year. 
The vaults, which had long been over-crowded, were cleared of useless material, 
and all the books re-arranged on the shelves in an accessible manner. 
The catalogue and cards of the section devoted to Law and Economics were 
completed, in accordance with the new arrangements of the books on the shelves. 
The authorities, ofl3cial and otherwise, on such subjects as seemed likely to come 
up in Parliament, have been, so far as could be foreseen, collected, classified and 
indexed. 
Among the purchases made during the year, apropos of the memorable meeting 
of the American Bar Association, was a complete set of the proceedings of that

expression of the deep regret with which we have learned that your official connec- 
tion with this country is about to cease. 
We beg to assure Your Royal IIighncss of the deep appreciation with which

tude for all that concerns its welfare.

hands of the King. you will a.ssure Ilis Majesty of the unalterable loyalty and devotion 
of the Canadian people to IIis ][ajesty's Throne and person, of their abiding affection 
for the motherland and of their firm resolve to accomplish their part in the main- 
tenanee and upbuilding of our Great Empire. 
We trust that Your Royal Highness may have many years of usefulness befon 
you in which to continue your work on behalf of that Empire and that you will pro 
serre, in the years to come, a kindly recollection of Canada and its people.

with the conent of the committee, be printed and sent out as an authentic repox% 
vouched for by the IIydro-Elcctric Commission, so that there could not be any doubt 
as to its accuracy and reliability. 
]V[r. ROBB.--At what price can e]ectrlc power be fnrnished to the farmer who does 
not need a great deal of power 
Vr. WlLSON.--[r. Purcell can take that up and tell you exactly what it costa 
In the twnship of East Flambero for a half horse power it costs $37.20 per year; 
for one horse power it costs $50.40 and for two horse power $78.80. For three horse 
power $103.20 per year. The cest varies according to locality. 
]kir. II.oBB.--That is for a mininmm of one horse power 
Mr. WLsO.--Yes, we will ell him from one-half horse power upwards. 
Ir. ]h,nB.--Wlmt is the cost of developing it 
Mr. WLSON.--Well, the Commission buy power at Niagara at $9 per horse 
power, aml it has to be carried say, to the wn of Dundas, costing there $15; you 
understand the expen of earwing it from Niagara Fall. to the locality where it 
is used has to be added to that $9, that is what you might call the freight on it, in 
vhieh is iueluded interest, sinking fund, depreciation, operation and maintenance 
charges. The farmer gets it at lhe actual cost of delivery, nothing further is 
elmrged. If you will now allow lr. Epenehied to speak he will tN1 you aut the 
amount of power purelmsed and the amount lest in transmission. 
Mr. A,ENe.You suggested that the l lydro-Eleetric Commission contemplat 
deeloping its owu power in seine eases; vould it have been of advantage to the 
l lydro-Eleetric Commission had the control of thee water powers been retain and 
handed over to the Commission for development for its own purest] 
Ir. VILSON.--I do not thi there can be any doubt about it, the province of 
Ontario gave away a great asset when they gave that power at the Falls over to the 
parties that hold it at the present time, and let us hope that no more water powers 
will be given away either by Provincial or Dominion Governments, but that they 
will be conserved for the people of Canada. 
r. F. F. ESPENSCIIIED, Assistant Enginr, Ontario IIydro-Electric Commi.ion.-- 
Mr. Chairman and Gentlcn of the CommitS: It affor me yew eat pleasure 
to appear before you this morning and I propose to give you briefly the histow of 
the Hydro-Electric enterprise, as far as the Hydro-Electric Power Coission of 
Ontario is concerned. It is ve interesting and I will not take ve much of your 
time in discu.ssing it. About eleven years ago a humor of micipalities, some 
half dozen of them, in the central pa of the province of Ontario, chiefly, Toronto, 
Guelph, Brantford, London and some her smaller municipalities, conceived the 
idea that they should be able to secure Niagara power at reasonable rat. At that 
time they all had small services, generated by steam in most cases and their rates 
were exorbitant. These people came enamoured with the power at the Fall.s and 
conceived the idea of getting it for themselves; as no one would bring it  them 
they thought they would endeavour to bring it themselves. An Act was passed 
about 1903 empowering these municipalities to appoint a commission to look in this 
matter and to report  the municipalities on the feasibility of bringing to them 
Niagara power. That Commission consumed some two or three years in looking 
into he question in all its aspects, preparing estates of the cost of transmission 
and what the Niagara power could be develod for. That re was very interest- 
ing and quite voluminous, and it was made up by a number of prominent engrs 
acting in conjunction with this Commi.ssion. The Coission was, I might say, 
not a technical commission, but it was composed of busins men from the various 
municipalities, among hem was the Hon. Adam Beck, who is sti with the Com- 
mission as chairman. That rort aroused a great deal of interest and investigation 
end produced remarkable results, so much so that he projt ban to ow by leaps

THE PRODUCTION AND MARKETING 01  ' LIVE STOCK. 

I[OUSE OF COMMON.% 
COMMITTEE Ri)O.l No. 105, 
TIIt'ISDA', February _oil, 191. 
The Select Standing Committee on Agriculture and Colonization met here at 
11 o'clock a.m., the Chairman, Mr. Sexsmith, presiding. 
The CH.mAN: We have with us to-day ][r. John Bright, Live Stock Commis- 
sioner of the Department of Agriculture, who will address us on " The Production 
and ]Iarketing of Live Stock." 
:Mr. ]3amlT: :Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen, 1 do not wish to take up too much 
of your time, and do not intend to speak very long. The subject 1 am asked to deal 
with concerns the production and marketing of live stock. .t the outset I might 
say that the live stock industry in Canada to-day is, perhaps in the most prosperous 
condition in which it has so far been found. The farmer in any part of 'anada wh,, 
is following mixed farming is obtaining a better return for his labour than ever 
before; and from the farmers' and breeders' standpoint it is not necessary to lie 
awake at night worrying over the high cost of living, for they are now getting some- 
thing for their work. 
In considering the question of the production and marketing of live stock it is 
perhaps as well to divide the subject into two divisions, horses and live stock 
generally, llorses are not affected by any particular combination of men or corpor- 
ations for the regulation of prices. The price of horses is regulated more perhaps 
than anything else in Canada by the law of supply and demand and the state of the 
money market. The horse is used as a beast of burden, and the price paid for him 
is affected by the money market in an indirect way; tightness of moncy interferes 
with the initiation and continuation of public and private works; it restricts the 
enterprise of private individu.als and corporations, as well as Governments, who are 
not likely to spend as much money when it is hard to get or, in some cases, as it wa 
a few years ago, when we were unable to get it at all; work at such periods has to be 
curtailed, the demand for horses consequently slackens and that materially affects 
the price of horses. I recall as an illustration the incident only a few years ago 
when owing to the tightness of money--perhaps you gentlemen as members of Parlia- 
ment will not remember itbut as a farmer I retain a vivid recollection 6f the 
tightness, which fortunately did not last very long, and the consequent curtailment 
of enterprise, public and private. I recollect how the horse market was affected 
then. Going out to one of the best horse markets we had in Canada up to that time. 
a market that absorbed quite a number of dray horses, we found in that crisis we 
could hardly sell a horse at all, even though there was, as at present, a scarcity of 
]rorses in the country. I want to say, and I say it advisedly, that to-day in Canada 
the very large majority of farmers have not enough horses to do their own work; 
that is actually the case, and in many thousands of insta'nces they are wanting 
horses very, very badly and are unable to develop their work as they would like to 
because of the insufficient supply. We are up against that condition of affairs; and 
there is this other condition that the horse cannot be considered in the same class 



P[ BLICATION BRA. CH

APPENDIX No. 2 
Q. I see that 25,) copies of the bulletin on the beef industry ha'e been sent 
out?--A. No, the beef iudustry bulletin was issued when the mailing list was not as 
large, and there were sufficient copies to cover all the names. We now have a new 
edition of that bulletin, but we are simply sending copies to those who apply for them. 
By the C]alrma: 
Q. I[ow do you ex.pect to educate the farmer We have 250.000 farmers in 
Ontario alone. You send out ten or twelve thousand bulletins on tlle beef industry 
t) men already directly interested in it. You write only to the men you have on your 
mailing list and ask tbcm to indicate the different bullctius they want, aud if they 
say they want bulletins on the beef industry you send these to them. I und.rstood 
you to say that you had 25,(00 naanes on the list, but that does not iudicate that you 
send out 25,000 bulletins?--A. When a publication is being printed by any of our 
branches, they ascertain from us what number will be required to cover the list and 
o provide a surplus for responding to applications. Sutcient is always printed to 
cover a complete list with o surplus. 

By Mr. Arlhurs: 
Q. ][,w often is the ]i.t revised- A. The list is constantly under revision. 
Q. ]Iow (lo you keep the miling llst up to (late Do you consult the members 
ef the various constituencies--A. When  publication is returned " Not called for" 
that name is taken out of he list. and if a number, five, six or more, are returned 
from a t oce, the list ,f names is sent to the postmaster asling for a corre't list 
and for correct addresses, if he has them, of those that have been returned. 
Q. Would it not be better to have a list provid by the ,tary of the local 
acultural ieties, who could give a list of their active membership at any timel 
I thin that could bc very esi]y g,t--A. That is a suggestion that might very well 
be considered. 

Mr. I[kNlX'A: It would be very intperfcct at that. 
By Mr. Best: 
Q. You have not explained to us yet how you get thi mailing li.-t, fr,)m what 
source you get the names of the parties t whom you send these publicatious?--A. 
The mailing lists have been gradually developed within the different braucbc: that 
is to say, the Experilnental Farms, through their correspomlcnce and requests, 
developed a mailing list of about 50,000. They were made up by personal applica- 
tions, by requests of members, and in various ways, and that constituted the origin 
of the list at the present time. As  explained, the people apply. We fiared out that 
the newspapers that receive these press notices have two million readers, and requesta 
that come from them are supplied with a copy of the bulletin desired, and this card. 
These cards, when returned, are put on the list. )Sy own view of the matter has been 
that, in these days of so much printed matter, if a publication is sent to a person who 
has not asked for it, in an envelope teat has anything like an official look, he is very 
apt not to read it. 
The CItAmA: ot in the country districts at all. That may be the case with 
Civil Servants who get bulletins by the thousand. But ninety per cent of the 
armers read anything of that nature they can get. They are not overwhelmed with 
reading material. 
By Mr. Wright: 
Q. There is a great deal in what my hon. friend says. There should be a system 
which would reach the great farming community. I did ]ot quite gather what these

"' Pneumogastric nerves send ramifications to lhe larynx, the pharynx, and the

"" Physiological effects of tobacco and alkaloids. One of the commonest effects 
of over indulgence in tobacco is a chronic inflammation of the throat and upper part, 
of the respiratory passages, leading to hoarseness and excessive secretion of the mucous 
gland. This is ex],laiued by the constant application to the throat of au irritant, 
alkaline vapor and is probably not due to the H*eeific act[oil of nicotine. A smilar 
irritated condition of the tongue is frequently met with, more especially wheu the 
hot vapour is directed especially o one part, as in pipe smoking, and it is sometime 
stated that the constant irritation flus produced renders the tongue and lip m,,re 
liable to cancerous disease. Dyspepsia, want of appetite and consucnt loss of flesh 
may also be explained by the local irritation produced by the nicotine swallowed in 
the saliva. A common result of the abuse of tobacco is palpitation and irregularity 
of the hea which has as yet received no explanation. Another important symptom 
is dimness of vision and imperfect accommodation of the lens for distance which may 
go on to complete bliness in one or both eyes. In early cases, fle retina often 
appears pale, and if the condition persists atrophy of the optic nerve may result. The 
hearing is sometimes affected by excessive snmking, but the symptoms are. indistinct 
and variable. ervous symptoms, such as tremor, exaggeration of the reflexes, head- 
ache and giddiness are sometimes developed in workmen in tobacco factories, but 
they do not sm to be induced by smokiug or chewing tobacco, though depression, 
muscular weakness and giddiness are sometimes complained of. In the great majority 
of cases of chronic tobacco smoking, the symptoms disappear on abandoniug the 
habit or even on restricting the daily consumption. A series of subjective and even 
objective symptoms are said to be indued in neurotic subjects by the udden with- 
drawal of tobacco.
