Albany, X. Y., March 28. Tho Senato
gave the whole morning to general or

Immediate consideration of the hill
prohibiting the pule of oleomargarine,
introduced by the Committee on Public
Health. Speaking In the names oi
the farmers, dairymen, grocers
and consumers of butter in the
State, he begged that tho bill bo not en
dangered by delay. Tho bill was ordered
to immediate consideration, Messrs, Dag
gett and I'lunkett voting in the negative.
Mr. Lowe stated that the committee at
the outset had no conception of the extent
which food adulteration was practised.
"One-half of the so-called butter sold
in this Slate is made of hog fat and oils
imported from France and Italy. It H

no call for aid has heretofore been made.
Kow the river is rising and the Island is
under water. All labor has ceased and
many large families are in danger of

being out of the question, owing to the
overflow during the past two mouths,
there will be great suffering unless Im
mediate aid be received. Provisions of
all kinds are wanted; not less than$l,500
worth will supply the present want. It Is
requested that supplies be shipped in care
