JfETV TORK, Dec. 13. The quarterly
meeting of the directors of the Distilling
and Cattle Feeding Company is now in
progress in this city. At to-day's session
it was Toted to declare 14 per cent divi
dend for the last quarter, payable January
3, and it was announced that the price of
whisky had been advanced the past week 10
cents per gallon. The following statement
was given out:
The d.reotors of the Distilling and Cattle
Fefding Company announce to the stock
holders the pu-ohase by ten company or the

bushels per day. In view of the fact that
these purchases were contrary to the
adopted policy of tho company, it Is due to
yoa to Rive the reasons for our departure
Early la the season your board became
satisaed that the situation of Government
finances would render Inevitable an agita
tion in Cocjross during the present session
for an increased tax on spirits, and, in vio w
thereof, t.o decided that the purchase of tho
distilleries named would creatly inure to
the prcat and benefit or the company. This
etrons reason for the departuro from the
settled policy Is not one that is likely to
occur again verr soon, and it is not neces
sary for tho company to Increase its prop
erty holdings, nor is it the desire of the
board to do so.
Reduced Dividends raid for Them Alt
The extraordinary demand for goods
Which we are now experiencing, and which
bids fairtocontinue.inouropinlon furnishes
a complete justification to the board for its
action in this Instance, In reversing tho es
tablished policy or the company In respect
to the purchase of outside distilleries. The
reduction of dividends put the company in
financial condition to make these purchases
without the Issuance of new stock or the
creation ol bonds This toinporary reduc
tion was, undoubtedly, a disappointment to
many, hut we are satisfied that all will com
mend the course or the board now. in view
o: the results obtained. The profits of the
company will, in the opinion of the board,
enable it, not only speedily to iestore its
surplus alter paj in therefrom for those dls
til'.erios but too add very creatly thereto.
The annual statement of the business of
the company, to be made at tje annual
meeting', will rive in detail the results of our
management of the company. As far as re
lates to the question ofan increase of tax,we
have had and shall have nothing to say, as it
is a matter which hinses entirely upon the
necessities or the Government, and neither
our protest nor our approval would have

The Trust's Grip on the Market.
According to William Miday, editor of
a monthly paper devoted to the interests of
distillers and wholesale liquor dealers, the
trust has a strong grip on the market. Said
It has the entire spirituous output of the
country bought up. It has in its possession
MOOO barrels of spirits, and there is no
doubt that the output ot nearly all the dis
tilleries in the country has been, bought up
