'Virtues of Barley Malt as
Against Corn Boor.
.Aug, Busehj Tico Presidont of
tho Anheusor-Busch Browing'
Association Interviewed.
'Effort to Manufacture Cheap
Beer and Its Results.
From St. Louis Sunday Mirror, Dec. 0.1
An editorial in the Sunday Mirror of last
week ou tbo BUbject ot "Beer Culture" nt-
traded a great deal of attention by reason of
the statement made therolu that there aro su
perior and inferior articles of beer selling to
consumers at the same price perglass. There
was no intontion in tho artlclo to do an in
jury to any browerylnterest, but toiu form the
reader that ho should insist on having tho best
beer for his money and not accept the In
ferior. Superior beer is made of barley malt.
Barley malt is expensive and the beer made
from it is made by superior processes. Tho
common beer is made of corn and barley
malt, in about equal proportions, but the bar-
'loy malt is not necessarily of fine quality and
it is brewed cheaply.
Mr. August A. Busch, of tho Auheuser-
-Busch Brewing Association, speaking on the
subject of superior and inferior beers, said to
i a representative of tho Sunday Mirror yester
day: "I have no desire to say anjtbing for or
- against beer manufactured by other brewers.
Tour paper is adopting tho right course, bow-
over, in endeavoring to educato the people
on the subject of superior and Inferior beers.
But as far as tho Anheuser-Busch browory is
concerned we are out of competition."
""Do you usocorn in the "browing of the
Anheuser-Busch beers?' '
"Corn, or corn preparations, used by so
unany breweries, never enter tho gates of the
Anheuser-Busch Browing Association. Tho
secret of the success of our beer is duo to tho
fact that we use nothing but the finest malt
and tho choicest hops and allow the beer to,
thoroughly xnaturo before it enters Into con
sumption. Hence, our beoris not only tho.
bast and the Healthiest beverage, but also tho
highest-priced beer offered to tho public.
Beer made of corn and of corn preparations is
naturally cheap, and tho quality is cheap ac
. cordingly."
"How is the public to know which is tho
, pure beer and which is not ?"
"I do not caro to say anything about any
other beer than that of tho Anheuser-Busch
Browing Association. I simply Bay that wo
uao only the best barley malt and tho choicest
.. of everything. Tho motto of tho Anheuser
Busch Brewing Association Is: 'The best is
not too good.'
"Beer made from barley malt is, of course,
more nutritious and wholesome than that
made from corn and corn preparations.
"If you want to know what is good beer
and what is not you have only to ask which
beer costs tbo dealer tho most and
which costs tho least, Tho associa
tion of which I am vice-president
has made it a study to produce tho purest and
finest beer that can bo made, and we havo es
tablished a reputation wh lch shows that wo
have succeeded. You will never make a mis
tako by buying this beor. It is in foreign
countries the most serious rival to the cele
brated Bass' alo of England. It has nearly
excluded It from tho United States. Every
man who keops a table of wh ich ho is proud
feols that it is not complete with out one of
our brands of beer. This is one of our highest
objects to make the Anheuser-Busch bee r
tho tablo drink of tho world."
There Is no desire to raise an agitation on
tho question of beer adulteration, and it is not
Intended to bo inferred that beers not mudo
from barley malt aro adulterated. Tho point
made is that they aro cheap and of lower
grado than tho other. So little is known by
beer consumers of what they aro giveu in beer
to drink that tho tlmo for a popular education
as to the ingredients of various beers has ar
rived. As the best beer can bo bought at the
Bamo price per glass as tho pooiest beor, tho
consumer should know which Is tho. highest
grade. The effort to make money out of the
manufacture of beer by those who aro not
concerned In establishing a reputation or pro
ducing an article of beer concededly fine, or in
tho cultivation of a perfect beer, should bo
looked on with suspicion by tho beer con
Burner, who has tho right to demand of all
brewers beer as good as the best.
Bepr drinking people should know that
corn beer is a cheap and inferior article and
that barley malt beor is fine, wholesome and
higher priced.

Postmaster Sherwood Gives Useful Hints
to Those Who Send Gifts by Mall.
"You may safely say," said Postmaster
Sherwood to a Hekald man yesterday, "that
tho Washington Posto dee is the worst one in
tho country through which Christmas pack
ages pass. Not because it Is tho most care
lessly managed one, nor because of a want of
dllllgenco on tho part of its omploi'es. for wo
havo every reason to believe that tho Wash
ington City Postofflco is one of the best man
aged ofllccs in tho United States, and that, of
course, moans one of tho best in tho world:
but because of tho fact that more largo and
heavy ofllclal mall packages pass through
this offlco than through any other ono office
in tho country. I refer to the thousands of
heavy Government reports and similar vol
umes which aro constantly being mailed by
thovariou8 Departments. These packages,
some of them weighing as much as six pounds,
aro not only forwarded through this office,
but many of them aro roturnod through it.
Owing to a want of proper facilities, wo aro
obliged to forward such heavy mall matter in
tho samo bags in which wo muBt place the
Christmas packages. Therefore, it Is little
wonder that so many of such packages reach
their destination iu a more or less damaged
condition. But then a great many Christmas
packages are damaged because of the indiffer
ent and careless manner in which they are
mailed. Naturally wo do all In our power to
to protect all classes of mail and facilitate its
prompt delivery, but unless we havo the in
telligent co-operation of those who mail it
our efforts aro retarded aud not infrequently
rendered fruitless. Tho following sugges
tions, if carefully observed, would not
only materially assist in the speedy
transportation of Christmas mall, but would
also Insure its prompt dellrcry in good condi
tion. Tho senders of packages should be sure
that. the amount of postage stamps affixed is
correct. This information can be had at tho
main office, stations, or at any of tbo fifty
stamp agencies throughout tho city. Atten
tive clerks will bo found ready to give all the
infoimation requisite, and the postal depart
ment will do the rest. Newspaper or other
thin paper should novel bo used forwiap
plnsr, and packages wrapped where goods aro
purchased aro ordinarily not sufficiently se
cure for forwaidlng iu the malls. Use strong

that will not crush easily; tio well with good

giving full local address, street, and number
in lower right-hand corner, placlne stamps on

very few packages will fall to reach tho ad

to writo tbo name and address of tho sender
on tho upper left-hand corner of all packages
sent in tho mails, in order that they may bo

found, or In case thoy go astray, bo unmail

many more delays result from Incorrect ad
dresses than from errors in distribution and
handling by postal employes.
"In case of loss or delay report the same as
early as possible. No package weighing more
than four pounds can bo received lor convey
ance by domestic mail, escopt single books
exceeding that weight. Unmallable matter of

Commissioner Douglass a Candidato for
Holoento to the Republican Conven
tion Mnny Gontlomen Who Want to
Go to the Democratic Convention.
Tho tlmo for holding tho Ropublican Na
tional Convention having been fixed, tho Dis
trict Republicans are busily ongaged In work
preliminary to tho selection of tho two dele
gates who will represent tho District of Co
lumbia in that convention. Tho first stop to
betaken will be tho designation of a plan
under which tho dcleeates to tho convention
nominating those delegates will bo chosen.
In certain quarters at least groat dissatisfaction
exists as to tho looso manner by which the
members of tho District convention wero
selected four ye ars ago, and to euro that de
fect in tho system it is proposed that the
boundary linos of tho old legislative districts
shall bo announced in tho press of tho city,
and delegates selected at tho primaries closely
confined to their respective dlstr icts. Tho
District convention composed of delegates
chosen at primaries held In tho variouB leg
islative districts, will be held probably a
month previous to the assembling of the
National Convon tlon,which will necessitate tho
selection of dole gates at tho primaries not
later than March or April next. Although
the fight for the honor of representing tho
District in tho Rep ublican National Conven
tion piomises to the warmest over waged here,
yet it seems to bo generally conceded that
the two delegates will bo District Commis
sioner John W. Douglass and Colonel Perry
Carson. Commissioner Doug lass is regarded
as favoring tho renomination of President
Harrison, while Colonel Carson is understood
to be an out and out Blame man. Commis
sioner Douglass, it Is believed, will earnestly
endeavor not only to secure for himself the
honor of a seat in the National Convention,
but will also ondeavor to have tho District
delegates instructed to support tho President's
candidacy. Owing to the 6trong Blaine ten
dencies, of a great number, if not of the ma
jority, of the District Republicans, it is evi
dent that tho latter object of Commissioner
Douglass will not bo accomplished. Indeed,
it is just as evident that tho District conven
tion will refuse to instruct its candidates,
leaving them to vote as their preferences may
prompt. As tho personal pref ere nces "of tho
two probable delegates are well known, this
refusal to instruct them would stamp the con
vention as a compromise ono, and thot it will
be such seems to bo tho belief of every well
informed District Republican. It was hoped
by many that Recorder of Deeds Bruce would
bo selected as one of the delegates, bufrthe'ex
Senator has so far declined to'have his name
used, for reasons best known to himself. Of
course, there are numerous gentlemon who
would be pleased to accept such an honor, but
only those named aro thought to have a
In District Democratic circles very little
actlvo work is being dono at present. Al
though they appear to have a much larger list
of gentlemen who are willing, if not anxious,
to accept tho honor of representing their con
stituents in the Democratic National Conven
tion, it seems to be the general impression
that ono of tho two delegates is already
virtually chosen in the person of Mr. Lawrence
Gardner. Mr, Gardner's wishes aro as yet un
known, but If he desires tho honor there is not,
it eeems, tho least doubt of his desire being al
most unanimously granted. Among others
by whom it Is believed tho honor would not
bo declined should It bo tendered, aro tho
names of William H. Gordon, James L.
Norrls, A. A. Lipscomb, William DIck6on,
Mills Dean, Charles Thompson, Dorsey Cla
gett, and Campbell Carrlngton. There ha3
been some talk of selecting Commissioner
Douglass' colleague, Commissioner! Ross, as
one of tho Democratic delegates-, but it is
thought that Commissioner Ross would de
cline to allow his name to be considered. Tho
young Democracy of tho District havo a can
didate in tho person of.' Mr. A. A. Lipscomb,
of tho District Bar, for whom a most deter
mined fight will bo made. Although it is al
most too early tr predict what tho action of
tho District Democratic convention will bo in
the matter of making kuown a preference as
to tho candidates who will como before, the
National Convention, it is believed that, as in
tbo case of their Republican friends, tbo dele
gates will go unlnstructed. As Is well known,
thero Is quite an anti-Cleveland feeling here,
but whether that feollng will influoncfr tho
District convention it is now impossible to
dotermine. Governor David B, Hill has. many
ardent admirers in the District.
The Old Men's Christian Association.
A pretty girl was pointing out the places of
note to some strangers yesterday afternoon
from tbo inside of one of the Metropolitan
cars. One piece of information she imparted
nearly convulsed seTeral Army and Navy
officers who were in tho ear. They were just
Eassing Seventeenth and I streets, and she
ad told her listeners of the Tracy mansion
fire. One of her questioners asked what now
building that was on the corner, indicating
the new United Service Club House. "Oh
that," she said, "That is tho Old Men's Cbrla
tlan Association." One of the officers on the
car gave a brother officer a sly dig in the ribs
and with a wink said: "Not far from right,
old man,"
