TOWSON, Md. Saturday, - January 20,1900. LONGNECKER BROS., Editors and Proprietors. SI.BO per annum--inadvan.ee. Pottage pre paid. No subscription taken for iemm than mix months , The United States Senate on Monday last confirmed the nomination of Postmaster Warfield, of Baltimore city. Senator Welling ton, who was responsible for holding up the confirmation, was not present and there was no discussion over the case. Governor Smith has re-appointed Samuel W. Brooks, messenger in the Executive office at Annapolis. Mr. Brooks has filled this po fition continuously since the beginning of the l term of Governor Hicks in 1857, a period of I forty-three years. Although advanced in ft years, he is vigorous and efficient and knows Sunday Governor Smith and family their first Sunday in Annapolis and at ' tended the Presbyterian Church, of which Rev. Goorge S. Bell is pastor. The Governor has but one child—a daughter who is mar ried to a Mr. Foster, a Baltimore lawyer. Rev. Mr. Bell made a feeling and appropriate prayer for the outgoing and incoming Governor. Dr. J. W. Hering, the new Comptroller of Maryland, took the oath of office before Gov ernor Smith on Monday morning last and at once entered upon the discharge of his duties. He gave bond in the sum of $50,000, with a Baltimore surety company. Dr. Hering ap pointed as his chief clerk Mr. Benjamin F. I '“'Crouse, of Westminster, who will take charge February Ist. Dr. Hering has bad long ex perience as a bank cashier and is familiar with the financial affairs of the State. A permit has been obtained in Baltimore by the Continental Trust to erect its fine office building on the southeast corner of Baltimore and Calvert streets, all the old buildings having been removed. This struc ture will be a veritable skyscraper—fourteen stories high and built of stone, steel and iron, with terracotta trimmings. It will also have two stories under ground. The contract price is $750,000. Mr. S. Davies Warfield, postmas ter of Baltimore, is president of the Continental Trust Company. On Tuesday last the Rapid Transit Commis sioners of New York awarded the contract for the construction, equipment and operation of IP*. yew York city's great rapid transit railroad to John B. McDonald for the enormous sum of $35,000,000, this being the lowest bid. Mr. McDonald was a member of the firm of Ryan & McDonald, who constructed the Belt Line Railroad in Baltimore, including the tunnel nnder Howard and other streets. They also built most of the Philadelphia extension of the B. & O. Railroad. The president of the Standard Oil Company has issued an order that the price of oils must be raised to comsurners 3 cents per gallon. The people of the United States consume 970,000,000 gallons of oil every year. The increase of 3 cents a gallon will compel the people to pay the company $29,100,000 more in 1900 for their oil than they did in 1899. It is not surprising the members of this gigantic concern are millionaires many times over when they Mai:Yi.\nd State Horticultural Depart ment has prepared a portfolio of photographs of the fruit and trucking lands of this State to be sent to the Paris Exposition. The series represents the most famous orchards of the AUeghanies, Blue Ridge, tide-water and East ern Shore. It embraces the fruit lands from Garrett to Worcester counties. In speaking of Prof. Johnson said it is the purpose department not only to show some of the most famous and largest orchards in the world, but to illustrate the great possibilities of the future development of the fruit interests in Maryland. Over one hundred general views are represented in the portfolio. The question whether or not there should I be a special election in the Frst Congressional f, district of Maryland to fill the vacancy caused J by the resignation of Governor John Walter Smith, is causing no little discussion just now, especially so among Maryland Congressmen. ■ It is said that Governor Smith is not disposed I to call an election, chiefly on account of the expense of the same to the taxpayers of the ■ district. Senator McComas, discussing the matter on Monday, said : “If I were Governor A would consider myself bound to call a special but it is it is none of my business. don’t think anyone will suffer if he does not call an election until the time for the regular , rfl election next November." A bloody tragedy occurred in the crowded lobby of the Capitol Hotel in Frankfort, Ky., I Bfton Tuesday last. Ex-Congressman David G. and Lieut. Ethelbert Scott were ene ■ mies of some months' standing. Among other politicians they met at the hotel that day and the quarrel was renewed and during its progress fifteen shots were fired. Three ft men were killed, including Lieut. Scott, and A four were wounded, Colson being one of the B latter. Two of the dead men and two of the I wounded had nothing to do with the quarrel B and w'ere shot by accident. Both Colson and ■ Scott enlisted in the war againsTSpain and the V trouble between them commenced while they werein the army. Six bullets lodged in Scott’s body. The wound of Colson is only slight. B* Farmers will not object to expansion when I they observe that our exports of wheat flour B to Cuba alone increased from $571,000 in I the fi-ct eleven months of 1897 to $1,875,000 corresponding eleven months of 1899, Blard from $969,000 in those months of 1897 to Wi $1,655,000 in 1899, bacon from $582,000 in 1897 I to $842,000 in 1899, hams from $319,000 in 1897 i to $668,000 in 1899, corn from $267,000 in 1897 to $434,000 in 1899, and butter and cheese from $27,000 in the first eleven months of 1897 to $154,000 in the corresponding period of 1899. Of all the people in this country the farmer is the one most interested in expansion and fuller, freer trade. We raise more than we can eat, and corn will hover around 40 cents and wheat 70 cents till we find more hungry mouths to feed. At the meeting of the Board of County Commissioners on Wednesday the subject of h* the present debt, and how to liquidate it, ■ was informally discussed. Mr. Slade thought I a good idea would be to hold a general meet ■ I iDg of the taxpayers of the county at which some plan could be devised to accomplish this § most desirable object. He said the Democrats had promised on the stump to wipe out the debt and he thought the taxpayers should for- I mulate a plan to do it in away that would fall as lightly upon themselves as possible. Messrs, and Taylor agreed with Mr. Slade and said be thought the right way to ’ would be for the County Commission- call a general meeting of the taxpayers k with this object in view. He also said that ft some one must take the initiatory step in the Pieip cpa an( j that the Board should do it. has now arrived when something Kaost be done in regard to this debt and we glad to see that the Commissioners have ■ opened the ball. The idea of calling a meeting V of the taxpayers is good if the question at is- I sue would be the only one brought in. The I trouble with such gatherings heretofore has ft been that they would take too wide a scope ■ and generally wind up in a wrangle, l hedebt m m ast be paid, that is certain. How to do it W in the best way is the question that should be 1 treated in a businesslike manner. Special Corretpondence Baltimore Count]/ l nlon. j LETTER FROM ANNAPOLIS. State House, Annapolis, l January 18tb. 1900. ( Henri. Editor! :— Over two weeks of tho ses sion of the General Assembly has passed away and people Who have been in constant attend ance here for a generation all agTec that this Is the dullest and most uninteresting meeting of the Legislature they have even known. Not only do the appearances Indicate that the public is taking very little interest In what is going on, but the members themselves seem to be Indiffer ent as to what Is done. Visitors are few in num ber, and, in most cases, insignificant in influ ence. The proceedings are characterized by a perfunctory air from the opening to the closing of each session in both houses, and not one 6pcech of any length or any ability has been made by any of the gathered stateman. although there are many speakers of considerable ability among the membership. Up to the present time not one bill has been passed, and it will probably be late next week before any new law is ready to be placed on the statute books. Contrary to general expectation. President Hubner, of the Btate Senate, did not recognize the Republican Senators in the committee as signments in proportion to their membership and well known ability. This act of Mr. Hub ner is in glaring contrast to the policy of the Republicans two years ago. when that party was in the majority and the Democrats had but eight out of the twenty-six Senators. Mr. Hub ner has been severely criticised for his course by members of both parties, and Senator Wil liams, of Harford, voiced the protest of his Re publican colleagues in presenting a resolution which was placed on the journal as a part of the record of the session. Speaker Wilkinson, of the House of Delegates, was more considerate In his committee assign ments and gave the Republicans a much fairer apportionment when his list was handed out, consequently on his side of the State House ■ there was no mminmiM minority members. — Bills, as follows, have been introduced by the county members: By Mr. Jeffries.—To provide for the appoint ment of three additional Justices of the Peace In the 15th district and two in the 12th district. By Mr. Sandman.—To regulate fishing in tho Patapsco river. By Dr. Truitt.—To regulate the practice of pharmacy in the State. Also a bill to change the name of the Fraternal Banking and Trust Company of Baltimore city,to the City Banking and Trust Company, and to chaDge the number of directors from twelve to twenty-five. Applications for office in large lots are being received by Governor Smith, who is giving out no intimation, however, as to what he intends to do. The new Governor is extreme! y close-mouth ed In most respects, and the office-seekers seem to be able to get no word from him one way or the other. They keep on filing their papers despite all discouragement and in many in stances present their claims through delegations of the unterrifled, who assure His Excellency that the applicant has not only “never scratched a ticket but also that ho was for Smith for the nomination.” As the Governor at one time was something of a ticket-scratclier himself, the scenes in his office on such occasions arc not without amusing features to Jhose who know his political record from the beginning. Up to the present time the absence of the usual lobbyists has been the one most conspicuous feature of the session. Mr. Rasin has not shown up; Eugene Higgins is dead. The general crowd of agents and attorneys for the bosses and corporation pluggers, who have in past years made the State House notorious, have not been here, and tho only lobbyist of note is the Hon. Murray Vandiver, who, it is asserted, in tends to be the whole show himself this session, notwithstanding the fact that ho has just been chosen State Treasurer. Mr. Vandiver, how ever, has had considerable experience in the lobby and is quite equal to the task of attend ing to the business of the varied interests he may represent, and his position as Chairman of the Democratic State Committee will, no doubt, add greatly to his influence with the members of both Houses. The usual bluffs at retrenchment and reform, which characterize the opening of every session, are being made at the present time. Going over the journals for the past generation shows ex actly the same performances, and the same for getfulness which is apparent in those records of former sessions, so far as actual results are con cerned, will, no doubt, be seen when the books of the session of 1900 are made up. The mem bers come here full of zeal and in many in stances, no doubt, really anxious to carry out the pledges on which they made their campaign for election, but the atmosphere of our old his splrltof retrenchment and reform, and evefl tne most enthusiastic reformer generally falls into the usual rut and before the session is half over the words which are so frequently heard now will have ceased to echo through the ancient halls, or if they are occasionally used will only cause smiles of derision among those who hear them. At that time, as now, amoDg the observ ant, it is known they are only used for effect among the people who appear to be easily im posed upon by such specious pleas. The only reforms ever accomplished here were brought about during the last two sessions, when new men came forward who were not hampered by the old traditions of ring rule and boss-dictated regularity. Tho people, however, do not seem to have appreciated what was done, for they took tho first opportunity to bring back the old crowd, and the signs are evident that the old methods will soon be in full play once more. State’s Attorney John Grason and ex-Dele gate Wilson were visitors at the capital today. Delegate Kedmund C. Stewart introduced a bill to appropriate $35,000 to build an armory for Cavalry Troop A, at Pikesville. The bill pro vides for the appointment of a commission to select the site and superintend the construction, and also that the building shall be large enough for cavalry drills and for such other purposes as may make it a complete cavalry armory. The commission Is to have power to condemn land for a site should it be impossible to procure one by ordinary purchase. The impression prevails nere that tho Senate will refuse to confirm County Commissioner Benjamin F. Taylor, and that Governor Smith will appoint Mr. Charles C. Councilman to the vacancy. Other appointments made by Gov ernor Lowndes before his retirement will also probably be rejected. Paul Winchester. The Ohio House of Representatives has in definitely postponed action on the resolution expressing sympathy with the Boers in their war with Great Britain. All similar resolu tions should be likewise treated by public bodies. The private individual and societies can say and make resolutions as they please, and newspapers, also. But city councils, leg islatures and Congress in their public capacity have no business interfering with foreign af airs. All such action is usually prompted by demagogism. But the day is passing in this country when it pays to be twisting the British lion’s tail. While Marcus W. Montgomery, a New York business man, was bolting a sandwich in a “quick lunch” establishment his SSO overcoat was stolen from a hook on which he had hung it. M ontgomery sued the proprietor or the lunch room and obtained a verdict, which, however, has just been set aside by a higher court. The latter tribunal held that the restaurant man could no more bo held re sponsible for a patron’s clothing than for his digestion. Holland, too, is buying American steel rails. The industrial conquests of the United States extend all over the world. Iron bridges furnished by this country are being erected in Egypt. Locomotives from Pennsylvania are steaming through Manchooria. A large part of the rails and the rolling stock for Russia’s Siberian line are furnished by us. In fact, we have been recently sending coals to Newcastle, for a good deal of American coal has been shipped to England in the past twelve months. South Carolina has a new income tax law which applies to all incomes of $2,600 or more. The returns from the collection of this tax are now all in, and they appear to indicate that the people of South Carolina are in an aston ishing state of poverty. Some seventeen counties have reported no collections at all. Many other counties made returns of from sl6 to S9O, and in only two did the collections ex ceed SI,OOO. Colonel E. F. Fleming who was appointed under ex-President Cleveland as clock master of the Treasury Department, still holds that position. He has over 500 clocks in his care, and is known as “Father Time.” He starts on his round of winding his eight-day clocks on Monday and gets around to the last one on Saturday night. The leading Democratic paper in South Carolina, the Charleston Svws and Courier, sees no hope of saving its party from the wreckers in control. They manage to ruaVe themselves comfortable, however, on their rake-off of 121 per cent, on contributions to the campaigh fund. MASON AND DIXON’S LINE. A Movement on Foot to Restore the Line Dividing Maryland and Pennsylvania. Baltimore Sun. The restoration of the old Mason and Dixon’s line between the States of Maryland and Penn sylvania is the purpose of a bill introduced in the State Senate by Senator Moses, of Balti more city. Considerable historical interest as well as State pride is attached to the bill. It has strong backing and its passage is tolerably well as sured. The bill has been gotten into shape and brought to the front by Dr. William Bul lock Clark, State geologist, who bus had oc casion to investigate the length and regularity of the line while engaged in the work of the Geological Survey in the northern section of the State. Dr. Clark discovered that a large part of the line no longer exists, and that from time to time the monuments that marked it have been destroyed by vandals and carried away. For a considerable distance there is nothing to indicate the separation of the two States and, in consequence, numerous property complications have arisen and lawsuits iiave been instituted. Farmers of both States own- i ing land that was formerly bounded by the line have now no means of determining where their property ends and letters from Maryland farmers in the upper counties have been sent to Dr. Clark asking information in regard to the matter. Dr. Clark after a survey of the ground con ferred with the superintendent of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, who signified his willingness to supervise the restoration of the old line and agreed to supply free of ex pense trained engineers for the work and to furnish the delicate instruments needed, thus insuring an accurate survey. An estimate of the cost of the survey and the replacing of the monuments is placed at SIO,OOO. The Legisla ture of Pennsylvania has already appropriated $5,000 to pay half the expense of the work upon the one condition that the Legislature of Mary land appropriates the other $5,000 for its share of the work. The bill which Senator Moses will present sets forth these facts and requests the appro priation. It further asks that the Governor appoint Dr. Clark, the State geologist, as a member of a commission, to be composed of the superintendent of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey and a representative from Pennsylvania, appointed by the Governor of that State, which will take charge of the work. The bill states that this commission is to re ceive no compensation, except for the actual expenses while engaged in the work. Pro vision is made for frequent reports from maps and surveys, which are to be published in the volumes of the Maryland Geological Survey. The Mason and Dixon line runs from the Delaware boundary of this State to the corner where Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsyl vania join. It is about 200 miles in length and was run between the years of 1762 and 1768 by the two English engineers, Mason and Dixon. The Maryland counties bordering on the line are Cecil, Harford. Baltimore, Carroll, Frederick, Washington, Allegany and Garrett. When the line was originally laid stone mon uments were placed at intervals of five miles as far as the Blue Ridgo Mountains. Beyond this the line was marked simply by heaps of stones. The original intention was to place the monuments throughout the length of the line, and many of the monuments were carried into the country, but were never set up. Dr. Clark states that in Washington county two of them ornament the front steps of a farmer’s house in that section. Some years ago the States of West Virginia and Pennsylvania re ran and remarked the old line, so that the Maryland portion is the only part remaining only partially marked. Many of the monuments. Dr. Clark says, have become dilapidated during the century and a quarter they have stood, and large parts of them have been carried away by relic hun ters and others. The appropriation of $5,000 by the Pennsylvania Legislature was obtained through the efforts of Dr. Clark, who says that the bill went through without delay of any sort, the members appearing to catch on to the spirit of the bill as well as to its useful ness. Dr. Clark adds that it is important in running the line that intermediate marks should be placed at what surveyors call inter visible points, so that it is possible to see from point to point. This will make the location of the line an easy matter for the county survey ors with their ordinary apparatus. The restoring of the Mason and Dixon line, should the bill pass the Maryland Legislature, •will still further identify the Maryland Geo logical Purvey with the boundary lines of the State. It is already identified with the west boundary line, and last year successfully ran the Allegany-Garrett line, which for 25 years had been in doubt. The economy of the pres ent bill may be realized when it is stated that Pennsylvania’s share of the expense in run ning the line originally was about $171,000. On Tuesday night the Old Town Merchants and Manufacturers’ Association of Baltimore held its annual meeting, when the following officers were elected: President, Theodore F. George Gehring, Jr., Charles W. Hatter and John C. Weil; secretary, John W. Marshall; treasurer, Robert McLaughlin. Among the members of the board of directors are a num ber of well known business men. President Wilcox, in his annual address, took strong ground against the sale by the city of the West ern Maryland Railroad for $5,000,000. He called the new directors of the road, appointed by Mayor Hayes, "a packed jury" and added: “My present opinion is that the Mayor of Bal timore doesn't want a fair price for the road. Hayes is all right as far as his reforms go, and I will stand by him in them, but he is a pigmy in the business world. Where did he ever get any business aducation ? Thecouncilmen who ran up this Western Maryland debt did not represent us, but misrepresented us. They were controlled by two or three men. We don’t want the road to get in the clutches of a corporation whose counsel is our Mayor’s fore most legal adviser.” The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company was held in Baltimore on Wednesday, when the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: John K. Cowen, president; Oscar G. Murray, first vice-president; F.D. Underwood, second vice-president and general manager; Custis W. Woolford, secretary ; J. V. McNeal, treasurer, and Hugh L, Bond, general attorney. Reports showed that the affairs of the com pany are in a most prosperous condition. The gross earnings for the past six months amoun ted to $16,932,775, while the net earnings reach the comfortable sum of about $1,000,000. The annual report of the Appeal Tax Court of Baltimore city for 1900 shows that the basis of taxation for the present year is $388,242,020, as follows : Real estate, $236,670,692 ; personal, $32,446,661; incorporated companies, $42,500,- 000; securities, $65,789,903 ; real estate in An nex, at 60-cent rate, $10,834,764. These figures show an increase of $19,800,891 over last year, and it is estimated that about the same per centage of collections will be made from the 1900 bills that were secured from those of 1899. This was 85 per cent. Judge Arnold, of Philadelphia, has issued a decree restoring to membership in a beneficial organization a man who had been expelled because, while drawing sick benefits, he was obliged to serve on a jury. The court decided that jury service is not work in the general meaning of the latter word. At the meeting of the executive branch of the National Democratic Committee Senator Morgan, of Alabama, is to be tried for heresy, the charge being based on his recent declara tion that there are other Democrats in the county besides Wm. J. Bryan. Senator Beveridge’s speech on the Philip pines proves him to be an earnest believer in American destiny. His personal observations in the islands convinced him that the policy of the administration has been right and broad minded as well as just. The three new battle-ships whose designs have been accepted will cost $7,000,000 each and be able to cruise^,ooo miles with one coal ing. No more powerful vessels were ever afloat, and this is the standard Uncle Sam pro poses to maintain. Mrs. Evelyn S. Tome, widow of the mil lionaire Jacob Tome, of Cecil county, is presi dent of two national banks—one at Elkton and the other at Port Deposit. This is the only instance of the kind in the United States. The North Carolina Supreme Court has sustained a decision, rendered in Burke county, imposing a fine of SI,OOO on the Southern Rail way for giving a free pass to a doorkeeper of the Legislature in 1897. The parcels post arrangement with Ger- | many is growing steadily. Over6,ooo packages were seftt and received last month. The post age, strange as it may seem, is lower than on domestic parcels. London’s deaths last year numbered 88,244 a reminder of the vast dimensions of the city. Its annual excess of births over deaths would make a large town. The $11,000,000 of zinc and lead mined in Missouri and Kansas last year is a bigger total than the reported gold output in the Klondike, i Correspondence Baltimore county Union. I LETTER FROM BALTIMORE. '] Baltimore. Md., January 16th, 1900. i .Venn. Editors :—I am pleasantly situated in ' this city and having nothing special to occupy j ray moments thought 1 would write a few lines l for The Union. There is always something in I progress to please the tastes of all, both religious ! and otherwise. For some time union services have been held In the different Protestant churches, which help to elevate the minds of those who attend to' purer and better things than this life affords. Rev. Samuel Jones was here on Sunday last, preaching three times. In the morning he preached at Madison Avenue M, E. Church, Rev. E. B. PattersoD. pastor. At3o’clock in the after noon be held forth in Music Hail, every seat in the large building being taken and hundreds were obliged to stand in the aisles and galleries, and many could not gain admission. Preceding the sermon was a musical service. Many promi nent persons were in attendance. Hev. Charles M. Hawkins, of Trinity M. E. Church South, made the opening prayer. Dr. Howard A. Kelley, of Johns Hopkins Hospital, made an address de scribing the work of the Florence Crittendon Mission, for the benefit of which a collection was taken and a goodly sum was realized. Mr. Jones was at his best and said that one year ago he thought he would have to cease preaching, hav ing lost his health and partly his memory, but he was glad to say he had fully recovered both and was in the war to fight the devil while he lived, whether it was for a Bhort time or many years. He has grown a triflle gray but lost none of the fervor of his former self. His text was in Phiilipiana: “Who is Christ ? Where is Christ ? What is Christ ?” He said "the salvation of our souls depends upon the answer to these ques tions. Never have greater minds been working upon these questions, greater tongues speaking upon them and greater pens writing upon them than right now. Through all ages men have been groping in the darkness for their God. The freest and happiest man is the one who loves the truth,” Ho also preached in the evening in Emanuel M. E. Church South, Rev. J. O. Knott, pastor. For all this he received not one cent, although some wish to believe otherwise. He proposed to arrange his affairs and come to Bal timore in May if the citizens desire it to help save the young men, as he noticed the absence Of them from church services. The verdict of society is that this has been thus far one of the gayest winters that Balti more has known for years—dances, balls, pro gressive euchre and theatre parties, occ. The “Zoo" will be in fashionable favor the afternoons and evenings of 17th and 18th, l^hvlr , special performances will be given. The Ftost prominent women in Baltimore are interested and it will no doubt be a success. In addition to the hundreds of wild animals on exhibition from all climes, a special attraction will be aown for the first time of the .celebrated Ham, Jr., the educated ourangoutang, who in evening dress participated in the farewell banquet given Ad miral Scbley at the Clover Club in Philadelphia. The proceeds will be for the benefit of the Mary land Uenoral Hospital. The trainer of the lions and bears acts fearlesly. having those animals under complete control. Children enjoy riding the elephant, camels, ponies, &c. Many curiosi ties worth seeing will repay anyone who attends. Miss Lilavati Single, a highly educated Hindoo, has been lecturing in the different M.E. Churches of this city this week. She wears hor native cos tume and is professor of English literature at the Woman’s College of the M. E. Church at Lucknow, India. She uses excellent English, is charming in her manner and is doing a great work among the women of India.

Up to the present those prognostications have failed, we haviDg lovely weather all winter with the exception of a cold snap of a few days’ dura tion, when all who desire it filled their ice houses with that desirable comfort. Occasional. Corretpondence Baltimore County Union. THE MILK SITUATION AND HOW IT AFFECTS BALTIMORE COUNTY. Glencoe, Md., January 18th, 1900. Meun. Editors.—The dairymen of Baltimore and the other counties who supply the city with milk have, for several years, been making their milk at a loss, even when it was paid for promptly by the retailers in the city. They have had additional losses also due to the failure of the milkmen in town to meet their bills. It is only right and fair that these milk-producers Bhould get together and organize a strong com pany for the purpose of obtaining a better price and prevent the retailer who fails to pay his bills from repeating this outrage. The milk-pro dueers formed their association to obtain three things—a better price, security in selling and to trade harmoniously with the retail dairymen of Baltimore. Today their association, through mismanagement on the part of its directors, is not selling milk to a single one of the dairies that ever paid high prices, and have sold only to those dairies that were forced to sign their con tracts. Those dairymen of Baltimore who are notoriously bad pay are today buying milk from this association in limited quantities with thir ty days credit and as they cannot settle when the day of settlement comes, the loss must fall on the farmer. , , . Also the other point which the farmers wished to obtain, namely, receiving more money for their milk product, cannot possibly be realized for the surplus represented by thousands of gallons will not net a return of over 8 cents per gallon, and expenses that have been incurred by the association in Baltimore are extremely heavy. I repeat that the farmers who wish to obtain 16 cents for their milk will net 12 cents and they have also to pay their subscription in St Thc reliable dairies of Baltimore, that have always been classed as standing highest, are an . ness had they acceded lo tfuT (f cm a i ills' o ftli q Producers’Association. ’ There is another serious matter which will bo found to bo the outcome of this mismanage ment on the part of the directors of the Pro ducers’ Association. It is the old story of over confidence and failure to appreciate the situa tion. Some years ago Orange county, in New York Stato, was the dairy county of the State. Shortly afterwards the dairymen of that county, which furnished the milk supply to New York city, were superseded by the dairymen of Delaware county—2oo miles further away—and Delaware county is now the milk-producing county of theJState and farms have depreciated in value in Orange county. The same thing happened in Philadelphia and resulted in the middle distance milk-producers going out of business and the city supply being broughc in from distant regions. Today tho city of Baltimore has a new supply of milk to the amount of 4,000] gallons, coming in from distances of from 100 to 400 miles, as good as the average milk made in Baltimore county, and sells at from 12 cents to 13 cents per gallon from tho car, and this milk, coming in re frigerator cars, is perfect in almost every way. It gives to the small retailer the greatest ad vantage in doing business. Ho takes from the car just what ho wants, carries no surplus, is not worried by the loss of his trade in summer, and needs no effort to keep the milk of his farmer coming to town in such quantities that will enable him to dispose of it each day. Each day this outside supply comes in there is a nail driven in the coffln of the the milk-producers of Baltimore county. Those dairymen who have maintained prices expect to see a great llush of milk in summer time, and the cut-rate dairies will get good milk in winter at cheap prices. Tho sooner the farmers who are members of this association realize their position the better it will bo for all concerned. Asa B.
