San Francisco, August 21, 1905.
IN THK CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES, IN AND
, FOR THK NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA,
NINTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT.
SEATTLE BREWING & MALTING CO.,
COMPLAINT. AFFIDAVIT OF
rETER HANSON, ET AL,
STATE OF CALIFORNIA,
City and County of San Francisco'.
KDMOND O'NKILL, being first duly sworn, deposes and and says:
I am and for the last nineteen years have been Associate Professor of
Chemistry in the University of California. Before I became such. Asso
ciate Professor, I was connected with said University for seven years in
the capacity of an instructor in the Department of Chemistry there. I
was graduated from said University in the year 1879 as Bachelor of
Philosophy, and ever since that time have pursued the study of organic
and inorganic chemistry there and at various other places within the
United States and also in Kuropc.
I am thoroughly familiar by study and practice with the methods of
analyzing food stuffs, and have had a wide experience in that work.
Upon the 16th day of August, of this year, John G. Rapp, Esq., the
manager of JOHN RAPP & SON (a corporation), which I am informed
and believe is the agent in this city nnd County of the SEATTLE
BREWING AND MALTING COMPANY, the complainant in the
above entitled cause, furnished me with a sample and specimen of the
beer manufactured by said Seattle Brewing and Malting Company in
the State of Washington and known as "Rainier Beer." I made a
thorough examination and analysis of the sample and specimen so fur
nished me, with the result shown in the following tabulation:
Specific gravity, Temp, i5.50Ccnt6o Fahr.. .1.014
Solid residue. (Malting Extract, etc.) 4.91 per cent.
Ash ; 2C
Carbonic Acid 15 "
Total Acidity (other than Carbonic Acid) 024 "
Volatile acids (other than Carbonic Acid) 005 "
Alcohol (by volume) 3-65 "
I applied the usual and proper tests to discover whether or not any
of the following antiseptics or preservatives were present in said beer,
to wit: Salicylic acid, Benzoic acid, Boracic acid, and Hydrofluoric
acid, Salicylates, Borates, Benzoatcs, Fluorides, Formalin or Forlnal
dehyde. The foregoing comprise the usual antiseptics and preserva
tives used in beer. I FOUND NONE OF THE AFORESAID
ACIDS OR CHEMICALS COMPOUND IN SAID RAINIER
After making the analysis and the tests herein above referred to, I
analyzed and tested two additional samples of "RAINIER BKKR,"
both of which samples were procured by me about a week ago from
dealers in said beer doing business in the County of Alameda in this
State. The dealers had no reason to suspect or think that I was obtain
ing the same for any analysis or examination; I am convinced that the
samples so obtained were fair samples of said RAINIER BEER. Besides
analyzing the samples thus obtained, I applied to said samples the same,
or practically the same tests for preservatives and antiseptics that I have
previously applied to the sample and specimen obtained from Mr, Rapp,
as before stated.
The result of said last mentioned analysis and of the tests made for
preservatives and antiseptics was substantially the same as that obtained
by me when I analyzed and tested the sample which I had obtained
from Mr. Rapp.
It is my judgment, based on said analysis and said tests, and con
firmed by all I have heard and seen in regard to said beer, that the
same is of good quality, is made from pure malt materials, is brewed in
a proper manner, and is of a quality equal to any brewed on this Coast.

The senate was established by
1 Peter the Great and corresponds to
I the Supreme Court of the United
I States. It has, however, legislative
t departments which have jurisdic
tion over criminal, civil, commer

I legal practice. The minister of
I justice is its presiding officers, and
its members are supposed to have
advisory power in directing the
affairs of his department.
The senate supervises all of the
courts throughout the empire, is
expected to see to the general ad
ministration of justice by the local
magistrates and to review all new
laws proposed by the council of
state before they are submitted for
the approval of the emperor.
At present the senate is engaged
in reorganizing the local courts
throughout the empire in introduc
ing a uniform system of procedure
based upon the French model.
They are preparing a code of laws
out of- the enormous mass of im
perial edicts, legislation and regu

during the last two centuries or
The greater portion of the Rus

The third board, is the holy
synod, presided over by the metro
politan, or highest ecclesiastical
authority of the Greek Church, of
which the czar is the nominal head
just as the Sultan of Turkey is the
head of the Mohammedan faith.
The holy synod consists of the
several metropolitans, or arch
bishops, of Russia, and other eccle
siastics. It has jurisdiction over
all religious affairs in the empire,
I including the pay of the clergy, the
management of cemeteries, hos
pitals, parish schools and other
ecclesiastical dependencies. There
are sixty-one bishoprics, fourteen
archdioceses and three metropoli
tans. The procurator of the holy
synod is the executive officer of the
church in Russia. He is a member
of the ministry, the personal rep
resentative of the czar in all eccle
siastical assemblies and functions,
and next to the minister of the
interior is the most powerful official
in the empire.
He can transfer and dismiss,
elevate or degrade, imprison or
banish, any priest, bishop or other
ecclesiastic, acting always in the
name of the emperor, but never
interferes with theological questions
or doctrinal controversies. He ex
ercises the same jurisdiction over
all other religious organizations
with more or less vigor.
The fourth and most powerful
board, or the ministry, consists of
fourteen departments, usually pre
sided over by the minister of the
interior, whose functions are the
most important and whose author
ity is more far-reaching than any
He is usually spoken of as prime
minister of the empiie, although
such an office ami title are officially
unknown. The ministry does nor
often hold joint meetings like the
cabinets of other nations, but each
minister has his special day to visit
Besides these four principal gov
erning boards, the emperor has two
private cabinets. One of them con-
I sists of the five senior grand dukes,
! several of the ministers and other
high functionaries, whose duties
are undefined and merely advisory.
He also has a board of almoners,
which looks after public charitable
institutions and his own private
So it will be seen that the people
of Russia have more or less self
government, so long as they sub
mit to higher authority, pay their
taxes andrender military service.
Conditions differ in various parts
of the empire according to the cha
racter and treatment of the gover
i nors. The nobles and boyars or
large lanu owners nave a great
deal to do with the happiness and
prosperity of the peasants.
The priests, however, exercise
the greatest influence. The ordi
diuary Russian peasant is a relig-
! ions fanatic, loyal to his God and
i to his Czar. He is a stupid, stolid,
j stubborn creature and bears his
misery without complaint until
, educated. Then he struggles to
' break his fetters and becomes socia
