called on to give a benediction and,
without hesitation, said: "Gentlemen,
I know of no greater or tuoro
worthy benediction to pronounce on
a Democrat tlnn simply to call him
a Democrat." Along tho same lines
Mr. James drow an analogy between
tho Republican party and other
national mistakes, and after a few
minutes of graceful rhetoric concluded
by thanking tho Democrats assembled
for their support m tho
I past and expressing a desire that lie
illicit still bo considered worthy of
it in the future.
One of the most prominent of tho
Domocrats present was Representative
Georgo S. Wilson, of Sturgis,
I'ninn county. Mr. Wilson is a
young nun. but only a fow minutes
conversation with him shows the
innate strength of character that is
in the man. Mr. Wilson is one of
the more prominent Democrats of
his section, and is a candidate for
the speakership of the ne?t house of
representative. He will go to
Frankfort with the solid backing of
every Crst and second district
and was sinking hands
and renewing acquaintances with
thoao present yesterday.
Mr. Wilson ib the only eandidatr
for speaker west of Louisville and
standi the best show of election of
auy in the race Too, he is a good
man; one tliat is strong enough and
with backbone enough to do right at
tho right time. Flo will, if eleoted,
bo a distinctive gain, both iu polities
and personality, for west Kentucky,
as well as tho whole state.
Hero's hopin' ho gets it.
Some wit at the dinnor tablo called
the bunch assembled "The, James

peculiarly appropriate, for, as Mr.
James expressed it, tho Democrats

Defects In Pure Food Law to be
Remedied At Next
CANNING METHODS IMPROVED
hen Cougrcs meets in December,
one of tho quostiou.s to bo
thrashed out will undoubtedly be tho
revision of the pure food laws to
meet the demands of the general
body of consumers for Jtill further
improvements in the methods iu
vogue in many food factories.
One of the points overlooked in tho
original act was tho treatraont of
peaches aud apricots in canning
plants. It is the praolice of many
canneries to immerse peaches in a
boiling solution of caustic soda and
allow tho fruit to stew in this chemi.
cal until the skins of the fruit arc
eaten loose. Tho fruit is then put
through leveral washings until the
skins aro washed away. This pro
cess is about a cent and a half or
two cents a can cheaper than peeling
by i knilo. 1 hose who aic calling ,
attention to this chemical treatment '
say that tho of tho lye is not the
worst featuro of the proce.s, con- j
tenil that in order to iko this cheati
peeling it is necessary to use
green and unripe lrint for canning.
Ripo fruit will not stand the lye-
process but becomes discolored and
disi tograted in tho caustic soda. '
The little flavor which the unripe
peaches hae is killed by tho lye
treatment so that the result is a
woody, tasteless, canned peach which
depends for flavor on the syrup
which is added in the canning process.
The way to tell a lye-peeled peneh
is to wash away the syrup aud then
taste the fru.t. If it is tasteless and
pulpy.tho chances arc it is a
In the several washings to which
the peach is subjected after it is
peeled by lye, most of the chemical

of it is left the consumer gets it with
Congress did not mention thiu
subject in the puro food law.-, consequently
the canncrs who use this
method are not compelled to state
the fact on their labels. The present
agitation has for its purpose tho enactment
of a measure to remedy this
If this movement proves successful
every cannor will have to state
on his label if the peaches he used
were peeled by caustic soda or any
other chemical. That of course will
put tho question right up to the
consumer. If they would as soon
cat fruit which has been soaked in
lye they can do so. Many of course
will prefer to have their fruit handled
in the good old fashioned kitchen
