Controversy between John J. Dillon;
Starts Commissioner of Foods and Mar
kets, and tha food dealers has reached
the stage where they are making every
effort to eliminate him from ths situa
tion. It was learned yesterday that a
movement has already been organized
with thla end In view.
They see the opportunity In the re
ported differences between Oor. Whit
man and Mr. Dillon and will use all
their Influence to havs ths Commissioner
left out In the cold when the proposed
reorganization of his department goes
Tha resistance to Commissioner Dil
lon's order that all cold storage eggs
be stamped Is likely to develop Into
legal proceedings. Julius D. Mahr, presi
dent of the Mercantile Exchange, said
that attorneya for the exchange had
advised him that Commissioner Dillon
had exceeded his powers and that the
order la Illegal. Thla opinion, Mr. Mahr
said, Is open to all members of the ex
change for their guidance and he ad
mitted that probably quite a few egg
dealers would refuse to stamp their
Mr. Mahr, Charles Campbell of Camp
bell a Bohler, attorneya for the ex
change, and Arthur Petit of Reed
Petit, egg dealers, who refused to obey
the order, had a long conference with
District Attorney Swann yesterday at
which they objected to ths order and
questioned Commissioner Dillon's Juris
diction. The' law under which the Com
missioner derives his regulatory power
over cold storage was read and weight
placed on the phrase which says that
he may Impose rules "not contrary to
Waat Apples Staaapet.
"Why doesn't this man Dillon, who has
such an Interest In the apple crop, have
every apple kept In atorage labelled?"
said Mr. Mahr. "This certainly seems
to me to bo ctasa legislation and con
trary to law."
Commissioner Dillon through the
blunder of an assistant was put In an
embarrassing position yesterday, which
the egg men were at first Inclined to
make much of. Mr. Dillon explained
that orders having been coming In for
the eggs he bought to sell at low prices,
and fearing that they might spoil on his
hands he ordered some of them sold.
On Wednesday a wholesale dealer named
Miller aent in an order for candled eggs
at 35 cents a dozen. George Hllde
brand, the Commissioner's assistant, aent
unrandled eggs worth 33 cents a dozen
and did not return the extra two cents a
dozen until to-day. The egg dealer
made quite a fuss over It.
Commissioner Hartlgan said yesterday
that the egg boycott Is apparently being
felt by the dealers, as he has heard that
dealers who formerly sold from fifteen to
twenty cases of eggs a week are now
selling only from three to five cases.
Tho retailers are taking up the fight
against the wholesalers with renewed
vigor, and Commissioner Hartlgan has
heard that many retail merchants are
discussing the advisability of blacklist
ing certain trade mark and branded spe
clattles whenever the price on them Is
raised arbitrarily by the manufacturer
or Jobber or local agent
Labor Jelas Mayors.
The executive council of the State
Federation of Labor, which met In Al
bany yesterday, decided to support the
campaign of the State Conference of
Mayor and other public officials to re
duce tho cost of living, and will send
circular letters to 3,000 locals In the
State, urging that membera boycott cer
tain commodities that are agreed upon
from time to lime.
Some Interesting sidelights on the
reiiHon for that remarkably quick ap
pearance of tha milkman and Iceman
after a family has Just moved Into an
apartment wero given yesterday at the
session of the Wicks committee. Mrs.
Daisy Flnnln. a Janltress In 9 Northern
avenue, was the one who tors the lid off
these downstairs secrets.
Sho made out a regular scale of pay
ments to Janitors by milk and Ice deal
ers In return for aid In getting new
customers. She said that she got 310,
$15 or t:s from a milk company, 1C
or ISO and free Ice from the Ice.company
and bread and rolls free from the baker.
And then from the other end she got
Christmas presents from the tenants.
Mrs. Flnnln gave the Impression that
Janltorlng Is a fairly lucrative profes
sion, for she said she moves twice a
year, preferably Into a new apartment
so that she can get more commissions.
Cash for New Customers.
Benjamin J. Dore, sn les man, who
was formerly In the milk business, said
that he paid the superintendent of a
West Rnd avenue apartment house $2
for each new customer the superinten
dent obtained for him. The mflk com
panies also got names from the real
estate agents, according to E. F. Geyer,
who used to be solicitor for a milk com
pany. He said the physicians also got
10 per cent, reduction In the price of
their milk If they would recommend raw
milk Instead of pasteurized milk.
Mary Dyer, a bookkeeper for a large
milk concern, said that It was the custom
for the company to pay commissions to
Janitors. Np to November 1 the rate
had been f 1 for every customer using a
quart of milk, and 50 cents for every
customer using a pint This rate had
been cut in half, she said.
The price of 1 read may go higher, ac
cording to a representative of ths As
sociation of Master Bakers, T. T. Frank
enberg of Columbus, Ohio, who has
spent several days here In conference
with large bakers and Representative
John J. Fitzgerald.

ALL FRANCE UNITED,
SAYS 'MATIN' EDITOR
M. Lanzanne Asserts Nation
Will Fight to Victory
Despite the Cost.
"France will light to ths end and to
victory however long It may require,
whatever the expense, however great tha
cost In suffering."
Stephana Lauzanne, editor of the Paris
Matin, made that declaration last night
In a lecture In the halt of the French
Museum of Art 599 Fifth avenue. His
Hubjcct was "With the French Soldiers
in tho Trenches Before Verdun." As n
lieutenant, M, Lauzanne commanded a
company engaged In the defence of Ver
dun. He Is now attached to the French
Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"Louis Barthou, a former Minister,
expressed our purpose when be declared
'All France for all the war.'" said M.
Lauzanne. "In our ranks rich and poor
are fighting side by side. We know no
Republican, no Catholic no Royalist no
free thinker. Negro troops made the
recapture of Douaumont possible. We
arc all thoroughly united for France
and the right,"
Tho speaker described vividly the hor
rors of the fighting at Lee Eparches, a
knoll, at .one side of which were the
French, on the other the aermans, while
the summit was strewn with the bodies
of thousands of dead. He told of meet
ing an enthuslastlo young soldier wno
was soon to go on leave of absence to
seo lils mother. First, however, he had
to do eight days' service at Les
Kparches. Unmindful of the danger, he
said. "I shall go most heartily."
Rcfore the expiration of the eight
days he fell mortally wounded. When
his captain leaned over to receive his
final message the oung soldier again
said : "I shall go most heartily."
"That Is the spirit of the French peo
ple to-day," said XL Lauzanne.
The lecture was Illustrated with views
loaned by the French Ministry of War.
