Attack .Xew stallion lax.
It Is apparent that not only will ths
stallion registration law be assailed .in
the courts, but k determined effort will
be made to hare It repealed at the next
esj'on' of the legislature In case the at
tack In tha courts fall The opponents of
the law assert it does absolutely no good
to anyone and a great Injury to some,
while It Is a needless expense to all. It
la asserted the examinations of the In
spectors are superficial and valueless as
a protection to the public. The opposi
tion comes largely from several firms of
boras importers, some of the veterinarians
and from the owners of breeding animals.
The Inspection board Insists that the
cause of the opposition in the case of
some Is that It puts a cheek en the lm
portation, rale and use of Improper ani
mals and from certain veterinarians who
failed to get places as Inspectors. Vou
csn pay your money and take your ehoice
of these two sides of tha question, and
if you do not like that you can wait until
the matter comes up la court and then
read the testimony.
One angle of attack on the board has
been a demand on the auditor that he
check up the accounts of the board, and
this he hss complied with. Tha report
shows thst since September 1, when the
board organised, it had collected In fees
for examination of animals and certifi
cates Hill:, all but 17 of which was for
examinations. The number of animals
examined was lee. Th total expensss
for the same period were I7JU.IV which
leaves a njee balance to tha' credit of
the board. A considerable 'amount of
this, however, will be required to pay
for the printing of the reglstsr. which
will be a formidable book by the time all
the registrations are made.
The expenses are divided aa follows:
Salary of inspectors. B,4lf.io; expenses of
inspectors. tl.IM.ll; printing and advertis
ing, ll.lffl ll; miscellaneous, f1,(KB.U. Thers
are fifteen Inspectors and seventeen
clerks employed by the board, but It la
said this number will he greatly reduced,
especially the number of clerks, aa soon
aa th Initial Inspection baa been ' com
pleted and recorded. The board, even
with the number of clerks employed, Is
unable to keep up with the Inspection re
ports, as the recording of these, In addi
tion to tha pedigrees of the animals. In
volves a great amount of clerical work,
which the board members ' was de
layed about a month after the Inspectors
commenced their" labors by failure to
obtain record books on time. '
