Slnniluril Distilling Company Absorbs the
SlnllUU interests.
levy Mayer of Chicago, counsel for the
Standard Dlstlllitic and Distributing Company,
announced last night that that company had
nt last absorbod the Spirits Distributing Com
pany of New Jersey. The deul was effected
yesterday nftornoon at a meeting of tho direc
tors of the Standard Company at tW Broad
street. It has been pending since Dccomber.
and Is said to leavo 'the Standard Company In
complote control of the dlstilllnc and distribut
ing buslnoss of tho United States. The Spirits
Company wns tho last of anumberof rival or
ganizations which one byono have been ab
sorbod by tho Standard Compnny. until to-day
the Standard Company owns all of the impor
tant spirit dlstlllories In the United States and
a msiorlty of tho distributive plants.
Tho officers of the absorbed company aro 8.
M Bice. President, and J H. Woutworth. Sec
retary and Treasurer While incorporated un
der the laws of tho State of Now Jersey. Its
headquarter hae always cmalneil in Chi
cago, nnd It has been practically identical with
the old Shuteldt Company of that city. The
Spirits Company owns the H. H. ShufeldtA
Co. Distributing Company, the Shufeldt Distil
lery, the Itlverdalo Distributing House, tho
Itiverdalo Distillery, all of Chicago; the St.
Paul Distributing House and the St. Paul Dis
tillery of St. Paul. Its stook capital is J7.CO0.
000. and its annual business Is estimated at
ih ooo 000
The Standard Distilling and Distributing
Company Is also lnoorporated In New Jersey,
but Its) business Is managed In thlsclty. Frank
Curtis Is Its President Its Vloe-President. F.
(J. aiatiniesgon. IB tuau lue v luu-rruumcui. in
the American Sugar Beflnlne Company, nnd
Standard Oil men also are lntorosted. The
present business of the Standard Distilling
nnd Distributing Compuny approximates
$80,000,000.
Tho light which ended yesteidayhad been
going on ever since the tendoney toward cen
tralization became manifest. It was so blttor
at times that on ono occasion, at least, the
criminal law was invoked. Tills happened be
fore the old Distilling and Bottle 1 eeding Com
pany had developed Into thu Standard Com
pany. An attempt was made to blow up tho
Shufeldt plant In Chicago, and tills attempt
was laid at the door of tlio rival organization.
Matters went on so for that an indictment was
returned against one of the officials of the Dis
tilling and Bottle Feeding Company.
Nothing was said by Mr. Mayer last evening
about the price paid I Dr the controlling Interest
In the absorbed company, or about the condi
tions of the deal Ho let It be understood,
however, that thoabsorptlonwlll ho complete,
andthat theaffalrHof the Spirits Company for
the futuro will bo managed from tho headquar
ters of the Standard Company In thli city.
