At the bbsl VlHcultoml Convention held at

wnioh oushf to bare uiuv.-T.-al notice, for tt
wceould get alow in scsjotcsaco with its
provision* it would euro all tho evtls under
which the wine Interest now snffwrs, and I
believe H would inereaae the sale of p*M
produow four fold at once. Then every
buyer could see at a glance what ho was
buying, and every man'a product would be
sold under Its true maker's name, and cause
ail California wines to be sold under tnelr
true nsmes, (nrtead nf being sold tinder
foreign Labels This la a matter that wIU
have to bo pushed by the g r <ipe-growers and
tne people who wlah for fair d«Al<ng. it is
yet a matter c f uncertainty whether the wine
trader* wou'tl went such a law, for among
them ' way* that are dark' by some may be
practiced. Tbey have saany temptation*,
for they do btuinsts to make money. Al
though ■'honesty may be the best policy,"
yet we know that for all that all are not mm
e»t by any inaao*. If the grape growers aud
the people Will take an (uteres* la this mat
tor such a law can be passed, for it Is abso
