R. R. Rate BI and Pure Food Law
Effective First-Two Sweeping
Beginning the first two important
laws are effective all over the United
States. They are the pure food laW
and the railroad rate bill as passed by
the last session of congress.
Of the-two the public will feel the
effects of the pure food law first. Al
ready prices have been raised in cer
tain classes of food stuff and drugs,
which are also affected by the meas
Lire. Merchants in Florence have
used every effort to dispose of all
goods that they had- reason to believe
were not absolutely pure and the first
of January find their shelves compar
atively free from such stuffs. The
law has practically been in force
with them for several months as they
realized that any surplus stock would
be a dead loss after January the first.
The new law requires the shipping
of meats, which industry perhaps, is
affected more than any other, that the
grade shall be stamped on all meats
at the western markets. There are
three grades of meat, which are sala
ble. The first grade which is abso
lutely pure, the secon*ds, which are
somewhat tainted but to such a small
extent, the casual purchaser cannot
observe the defect, and the third
which shows the defect plainly.
It might be stated in this connec
tion that the meat shipped into South
Carolina is mostly, if not entirely
seconds, but it is retailed as the-best
quality. The law will break up this
practice. All shipments must bear
a stamp indicating tne grade and
must be sold as that grade. Already
manufacturers have begun to take
heed. A noticeable effect of the law
is seen in the case of canned toma
toes. Several months ago upon open
ing a can the contents presented a
rich lucious color, obtained by the
addition of impure coloring stuff.
Now the same contents minus the
adulteration canl be had. It is less
pleasing to the eye but more palatable
as is pure. If the law is enforced the
public will have reason to be thankful,
if the law is properly enforced.
The measure is far reaching in its
('lTect. The manufacturer, wholesale
dealer and retail dealer are subject
to its violation. Thus if the law is
properly enroreed will protec all
The railroad rate law was also effec
tive on the first. Tt requires that the
various railway companies shall is
sue no more passes except to regular
employees. This stops free fraveling
for an immense number of people,
newspaper men and politicians. The
law also places the making of rates,
both passenger and freight in the
hands of the Inter Srate Commerce
The public all over the country has
something before them in w,atching
the proPgress and the effect of these
