TO UTILIZE COM ICT LABOR.
Capt. P. B. .Johnson, of Walla
Walla, offers a valuabile suggestion
for the employment of the convicts in
the penitentiary. His suggestion j 8
that a number of them shall hereafter
In' employed in the conduct of a state
agricultural experiment station, on the
land at present owned by the state ad
jacent to the penitentiary grounds.
The .state owns there nearly 200 acres
of excellent land. If an experiment
station were bfltablished, the abundant
supply of labor afforded by the eon-j
victs would enable the carrying out of )
exhaustive experiments not possible ■
under other condition?.
There is an experiment station at
Pullman, designed to cover all condi-'
tions in Eastern Washington. The
state owns land at Puyallup, purchased
for the purpose of an experiment sta
tion for the benefit of farmers in West
ern Washington, where climatic condi
ions and character of crops harvested
are radically different from those in
Eastern Washington; but through the
failure to make appropriations for its
maintenance, the station has been
closed and the land leased and all of '
the aid extended by the federal gov- :
eminent goes to the support, of the '
station at Pullman in Eastern Wash- ,
ington. It is very doubtful whether
further federal aid could be secured >
for an experiment station to be con
ducted under conditions so nearly ap- J
proximating those at Pullman, and the ,
friends of Capt. Johnson's scheme i
would, doubtless, find some difficulty '
likewise in inducing the Pullman sta- (
tion to divide its federal assistance
with Walla Walla.
There is no reason however, why
the state itself should not furnish the
necessary tools, buildings and equip
ment for th<? proposed station at Walla
Walla in order that convict labor may
be utilized for a desirable end. The
state can very well afford to do this
and create a station which will sup
plant the work now being done at Pull
man. It is a pity that the state can
not make provisions for re-opening the
experiment station at Puyallup as well.
MUST CLOSE OUT THEIR "BIT-
Deputy collectors of internal reven
ue in this section of the west have re
ceived from the office of commissione
of internal revenues in Washingto
notice to the effect that the depart
ment has extended the time for requir
ing dealers in "bitters" to either sto
the sale of this kind of poods or pay
wihskey revenue license for doing i
It was the intention to make it effec
ive January 1, but it is explaine
dealers in the goods asked for an ex
tension of time, asserting that they
had large stocks on hand and would be
put to a disadvantage and considerable
expense if not permitted to dispose of
them. The department consequently
extended the time a month for manu
facturers, making the edict effective
January 1, and gave the retail until
April 1 in which to close out.
"On September 12, 1905," states
the commissioner, "circular 6673 was
issued from this office concerning alco
holize compounds advertised and sold
is medicine under varioues names,
aome of which were composed chiefly of
distilled spirit or mixtures thereof
•without the addition of drugs or med
icinal ingredients in sufficient quantity
to change materially the character of
the alcoholic liquor.
"In that circular it was stated that
because these preparations were held
out to the public as medicines would
not afford ground for relieving their
manufacturers from special tax a3 rec
tifiers and wholesale liquor dealers,
and would not relieve the retail dealers
rein from special tax as retail liquor
• tiers under the provision of the fed
• il statutes.
"It was further stated that this
joffice would, by analyses made in the
inical laboratory hen- of these var
compounds, determine as to
ther or not those manufacturing 1
handling them would be liable to
special tax above named.
Partner, that until such analyses
I made and conclusions reached by
office, druggists and merchants
rip these compounds in good faith
to medicine! only should not be
affected by the new ruling until De
cember 1. IMS. Before that date it
; was the purpose of the office to make
public announcement of the various
preparations found by analysis to be
', within the terms of the ruling of Sep
: tetnber 12.
"By reason of the care given in
making the analyses of these com
pounds the office has hern unable to
complete the examination of all such
compounds now on the market. How
ever it has made analyses of the fol
lowing preparations and finds that
