THE RABBIT COMMISSION.
(PEE PiIHSS ASSOCIATION.) Wellington, November 2. Mr Bel), the New Zealand representative on the Rabbit Commission, has forwardod a memorandum giving a resume of the work of the Commission at Sydney. M. Pasteur's experiments demonstrated clearly tbat^fowl cholera can be communioatod to rabbits either by feeding or infection, but they were not satisfactory as to the power of the disease to spread rapidly. The Commission conducted a number of experiments which indicated that the disease is safe as regards domestlo animate, and is slow to spread among rabbite, even under conditions more favorable than would be found m the open oountry. Further experiments are going on. M, Pasteur's agenta have asked to have trials made m the open country, but the Commission declined for the present. The members do not expect to conclude their labors for a long time.
