Mr, Doelgo jliiivvcil Hint tlio prohlhltlon
was for tho purpose of Increasing homo
production, to which no objection could bo
made, as every nation li.is tho rlijlit to direct
Its domestic economy, but denleil tho rltrlit
to cxcludo by ft falso pretenso of unlitnilili
fulncss, for which there was no warrant
whatever. Tlio pretctno of trichina was
considered, and It was shown from olllcl.il
Investigation of llio prohibiting govern
incuts that American pork is as free from
parasites as any other, nml that nil out
breaks of trlclilno'U hnd been traced to
domestic and not to American pork.
llio fact was demonstrated that tho con
ditions under which our pork is undo and
racked aro not surpasjetf for hcalthfuluo't
in tho wotld The records of hoards of
health wcro examined, and the deaths from
the presence of trlchlua were found to bo
very few nnd fur lietweou, and duo to tho
disgusting linblt of ratlin; pork r.iw.
'Ilia nddriss closed with tho following
"As to rclsllatlon, it Is nu expedient of
doubtful advantage, yet, If misrepresenta
tion continues mid prohibition Is still inado
against tho United States nlouc, wo shall bo
falo to ourselves If wo do not resent it;
nnd, If nothing ilso will prevail, let us em
bargo Trench wines and German cloths nnd
hosiery, or placo n duty on thorn which
elinll practically amount to tho sumo thing.
' To set nt rest honest suspicion of thoso
products, let provision bo tnado for In
spection, thorough microscopic examination
of nil or a part of tho meats intended for
export. This would extend thosalo In for
eign countries, nnd It would have, nomo In
fluence In extending tho consumption In
our own country, for there arc multitudes
In cities who fi.tvo been nlTcctcd by this
clamor, or soma long-standing prejudice,
w Iilcli this action might heal. Tho expense,
of this examination, If paid by packers,
would bo repaid in nn Increased tiricu of tlio
products nnd n greater demand for them.
"finally. I would remind producers that
tho stimulation of tho demand by the
fcml-famluo of several years In western
Kuropo has caused an overproduction.
Tlicro Is not so much wnntcd nbroad, for
their ability to feed pigs has relatively In
creased, "They must correct foreign projudlcos,
provo thu real excellent quality of tho
product, seek every open market, find now
ones, adapt them in form nnd sty to to pre
vailing customs of each i.omitry. Tiicro

wo'must bo nblo to supply tho poor with
cheap meat. Thcro Is n tendency togrcatcr
consumption of meats In F.tiropc. As that
grows uc must bo ready to supply thorn.
"Our country Is growing, too, nnd nioro
ment will be ucmanded. So with wisdom,
Intelligence, economy of meat making
thcro may still bo a falrpiollt for larger
production than at present, nu escape, from
foreign complications and domestic vexa

A Ccrrnl Which Yield i tlio Orrntust
l'rollt Per Aero Imported from Can
Statistics gathered by tho department of
agriculture show that there is ono cereal,
and but ono, which tho farmers of tho
United States fall to produce m quantities
sullleientfor homo consumption. Ilarloy Is
this neglected grain, nnd of tho whole
amount consumed In (ho country nbout 1(5
percent. Is purchased nbroad, tho nvcrngo
amount Imported jenrly dining tho lost
Jive j cars being I0,WjS,'J.U bushels.
Tho proportion of foreign barloy con
sumed Is steadily increasing, tho average
imports per annum for tho ten years from
1671 to lbSO Inclusive being but llttlo moro
than six million bushels. .More than 91) per
cent, of this Imported barley Is purchased
from Canado, and our aggregate export of
all cereals and cereal products, oxccptlng
com nnd wheat, Is scarcely sufllclcnt to pay
for tho Imports of this one grain ; in ISSil it
amounted to less than one-third ns much.
It is rcmarkablo that tho farmers of tho
United States, possessing both soil and oil
inato favorable for tlio growth of this grain,
permit their Canadian brothers to supply
eucIi a largo proportion of tho steadily In
creasing demand. It is qulto oxtcnstVoly
f tow n hi New York, Wisconsin, .Minnesota,
owa, nnd California, and Is in each a valu
able and paying crop.
Tlio demand is steady at prices which
make It ono of tho most desirable of farm
In 1684, taking llio wholo country, it was
the best-pajing cereal grown. The vnluo
per ncrowns $11,42, while that of corn was
lint $9.19, wheat $8.38, and ryo $0.34, Tho
jlela per aero was lower than that of corn
and oats only, while tho prlco ncr bushel
was largely uliovo cither, nnd out a few
cents below that of rye. In Pennsylvania
tho valuo per ucro of tho barley crop was
nearly doublo that of rye, yet but 27,000
acres were devoted to tho former while tho
latter was grown on 400,000 acres.
Why tho Adds of Ontario should bo de
voted to tho raising of a grain to lw con
sumed in the United Stales, while tbo farm
ers of New York. Mlchlcan, and the errcat
northwest devote their energies to tho rais
ing of other cereals requiring an equal
amount of lalior, and yet yoldlng a much
less profit pcrncre. Is an agricultural co.
nuTielrum. Certainly hero Is a chanco for
a systematic and remunerative rotation of
cropping, and It Is hoped farmers will glvo
Intelligent consideration to tho nbovo facts,
