Disease in Cattle.

Wellington, August. 13. The Joint Stock Committee considered the Cattle Bill to-day ; and took evidence upon diseases m cattle. Tiie principal witness was the Rev H.Van Staveren^the Jewish Rabbi, "Kosher" for the Jewish population m Wellington. His evidence went to show that a 'large percentage of the cattle and sheep slaughtered for human food are afflicted with tuberculosis and other organic diseases, and that legislation is necessary to protect consumers against the sale of meat from animals suffering from cancer or other diseases. The rev. gentleman's evidence was taken down verbatim, and will be embodied m the Committee's report. Mr Marchant, M.H.R., also gave evidence on the "subject, and expressed his opinion strongly that power should be given to destroy diseased cattle and sheep. The Committee adjourned at 11 o'clock, but will meat again to morrow and fully dispose of the Cattle Bill, at least so far as they are concerned. It is considered certain that the returns and taxing clauses will be excised.—" Press " Correspondent.
