GOOD QUALITY, l SHOWN
Secures 13 Different Samples ami All
Are Five of Gelatine and In
Dr. Albert N. Mueller, health com
missioner; yesterday ; niadc the first
- test of ice cream sold in the city, un-
-' der the:; new ordinance which -was
: adopted by the city council after
: . - something of a light by the manu
facturers Tand dealers. Dr." Mueller
gathered 13 samples of the ice cream
during the day, and found that the
new 'measure is being generally
obeyed. He; stated this: morning; thai
he found no traces of gelatine in the
samples tested, and no other of the
substances the use of which is for
bidden by the ordinance.
It 1$ reported that the dealers con
templated a legal fight to have th
ordinance declared void, nut were ad
vised by" attorneys that to engage in
( such litigation would c$st more in
the long, run, in patronage, than the
cost, of obeying the ordinance as it
,was adopted. There is some differ-
ence of opinion among the attorneys
. as to whether.. the ordmauce would
stand in court, but the sentiment pre
. vails' that If the. dealers start a fight
. on' the measure' 4t will be taken as
an" indication that they dtrv not do
Bijfe . to supply their customer, jyith
a "pure wholesome product. At any
rate the manufacturers seem to have
concluded to" live up to the new or
dinance, for ' there has been a not
iceable change in the product of
some,. and the iise of gelatine' ap
peara'.to' have 'been entirely discon
. ' ' Give a Guarantor.
The- tests yesterday showed that
. the Davenport manufacturers who
sell their. product here, and who were
so strongly opposed to the adoption
of the new ordinance,, and .comply
ing with the requirements, and have
done away with the use of gelatine,
at least in the ice cream sold on this
' side. In fact some. of. the Davenport
manufacturers are ". guaranteeing to
their patrons in Rock Island that the
ice eream will stand the test, and
t&at the retailer will not become li
able to a fine for selling it.
- ; Dr. Mueller means to continue the
testing of the samples until all of
the Ice cream sold in; the city has
been shown to ue-op t the standard
fixed by the ordinance.'

' Dr. Mueller also gathered samples

monthly test of the health depart
ment of the city. He states that the
recent letter sent to the dairymen ha?
had the desired effect, and that a
much better quality of milk is being
found now. The product is generally
well up to the standard, and some is
far above the requirements. In fact.

" Some of the samples." tested in. July
