WATCHING THE HOTELS.
An Agent 'lukllic Mcnli at Vnrioll Ho
tilric to Aacertulii the Ouillly or
Hotter or tJleo Ittdiip; rni'd,
miring- the past ten day an acent has
Ixen working In the i ity In the Intetesls
or the Uaiiy Association or the state hoiild
of aKriuiiltiire of the stnte, tiydiK to locate
parties who wete tlisohcviiiK the laws of
the last lcKlslntuie, conceinlriH the line, of
oleoiuaiitnrlne n. liutter. It will be re
membered that the law provided that In nil
hotels mid restauiants and other public
plates where It was used on the table for
Kiiests, there should be a lame placard dis
played announcing the fact, so that no
man might hae cause to complain that
he had been led to eat certain compounds
under fnlMo representations.
The law was bitterly fought, and moused
Kreat opposition In many portions of the
state, but It was pas"ted, anil Is now In
force. Heavy penalties weie piovlded for
thoso who disobeyed the provisions of the
lnw, and It was announced that. Inasmuch
as ihe state daliymen had influenced thn
leKlBlntion. they would follow It up by
securing its enforcement If any attempt
was innde to evade Its provisions at any
Tor some reason the dairymen have KOt
ten the Idea into their heads that at tho
hotels of tho city oleo was beluir palmed
off as butter, and this spotter was sent
here to secure evidence nn which to base
prosecutions If those facts wero correct.
It will i leniembered. thai reiently the
proprleltt' of a icstimrant, and Juilso
llenn, a leading grocer, were placed under
arrest for certain alleged violations ot the
law, and It Is stated that both arrests were
made at the Instance c-f the representative
of tho I'airy Association, ami thai many
Others are to follow at an early date.
It is known the spottei has been taking
mtals nt the dlffeient hotels In the city,
and it was his constant scrutiny of the
butter that finally attracted attention.
None of the best hotels in the c!t is using
oleo. nor huve they for n long time, but at

Musket was originally Imported to Aus

was of HKle or no account, but he proved
to be the sire of to many great winners
that there has since been a demand both
in England and in this country for the

of the ptogresN of the reorganization

"No change will be made whatever. Mr.
Rlplej will take charge or the road as pres

partment. "It Is not probable the new olllclals will
begin work before the llrst of the coming
year. In the first place, they cannot be
gin until alter th sale of the road. This
will take at Topeka, December 10. the date
having been extended from December 6.
After the sale It will take about ten davs
for the transfer of the pioptrty from the
li .elvers to the new company. That would
tlx the date at the nearest nt December 20.
It is probable, however. Judge Caldwell
vvlll be asked to ailovv the receive! to re
main In control of the road until J.tnunty 1,

books for December ami simplify matters
for both the receivers and the new manage
