Food Congress have written to the District Commissioners, ask Ing them not to oppose the pure food bill now pending in Congress. The communica tion was called forth by the letter of Dr. W. C. Woodward, the health officer, in which he urged the Commissioners to rec ommend the exception of the District of Columbia from the provisions of the law, saying it would Interfere with the present entirely satisfactory local laws. Addressing the Commissioners, the rep resentatives of the Pure Food. Congress say: "The National Pure -Food Congress, of which your health ofieer was an Influential member, formulated a bill which was In troduced Into the House of Representatives by the late Mr. Broslus, under number 12W73. At the following session of Con gress (which is the present one) the same bill was Introduced by Mr. Hepburn, under No. 3109. The same bill was introduced in the Senate at the beginning of the pres ent sessloi by Mr. Hansbrough, under No. 3s4. Was Carefully Considered. "House bill No. 8109 was carefully con sidered by the committee on Interstate and foreign commerce, and after a hearing last ing more than three week was reported with few amendments, not affecting the purpose or -scope of the - measure, and placed on the House calendar. In like manner, Senate bill No. 3342, after an elab orate hearing, was reported to the Senate, after unimportant amendments, and placed on the calendar. "All these bills contain a provision which all your petitioners heartily indorse and support, to the effect that Inasmuch as the bill is intended to regulate interstate com merce solely, its provisions should not ap ply to the police laws of the states, terri tories and the District of Columbia, relat ing to adulterated foods and drugs. ."When House bill No. 3109 was on Its passage a motion was made to strike out this provision, In so far as it related to the District of Columbia, and this motion pre vailed. It Is claimed, therefore, In the communication of the health officer, to which reference has been made, that the enactment into a law of the food bill, as it passed the House, would repeal the exist ing law and place the administration of the food law of the District In the hands of the Secretary of Agriculture. Health Offcer's Bequest. "To avoid this, the health officer requests you to endeavor to reinstate in the bill the exception relating to the District of Colum bia, In which request the undersigned heartily concur, and toward which they promise to use their utmost endeavors. Your health officer, however, goes further than this and In essence requests you to use your good offices to prevent all legisla tion unless this particular proviso be se cured. In this respect, we beg to submit our opinion that such an extreme action on your part is unadvisable. The pure food bill now pending affects the welfare of 80,000,000 people, and secures honesty and freedom from frauds in a commerce which is worth, at a low estimate, two billion dollars. It is a measure which has re ceived the approval of three successive pure food congresses; of practically All the mu nicipal and state boards of health that have considered it, of the great food and dairy associations, of the national and' state granges and nearly all other organized bodies interested in pure foods that have given it consideration. The measure, there fore, is indorsed by all the people of the United States who have given it consid eration. Any opposition to the bill which does not spring from a conviction that It is too paternal or unconstitutional arises from interests which offer to the public food products which the law pronounces deleterious or fraudulent. "To oppose such a law because it might alter the method of the execution of a pure food law in the District of Columbia, affecting not to exceed 300,000 of our citi zens, seems to us a character of opposi tion which your honorable body, after due deliberation, would be unwilling to adopt. Disasters Not Anticipated. "We do not anticipate that any of the disasters which your health officer foresees would really occur, even in case the bill should become a law as it has passed the House. The Secretary of Agriculture is not likely to alter In any essential way the methods in vogue at the present time, and, it is more than probable, would prefer to utilize the machinery now operative. "Without doubt, the definitions and stand ards found in the proposed bill are better than those In the existing law, since they have been formulated from a wider and more varied experience and by a larger number of experts. The substitution of these definitions and standards would there fore be a distinct advantage, and If this should be coupled with a restoration of the provision struck out by the House the con ditions of the administration of the law would. be better than at the present. "We earnestly request your honorable body not to oppose the passage of the bill now ,pending In the Senate, which safe guards the rights and privileges of the health 'office of the District, but, on the con trary, to use your best offices to secure its passage, and thus confer a blessing of a far-reaching character on the people of the whole country."~ SIX XONTES IN JAIL. William Booker's Testimony Convicts His Wife of Assault, Fannie Booker, colored, was In the dock in the United States branch of the Police Court today with her two smail children one a babe of eight months, which she car ried in her arms, the other three years of age. Her husband, William with hi. heed swathed in bandages, appeared against her, and his testignony made it apparent that his appetite for liquor and jealousy on the pert of both were the cause of his wife's ar rest, According to his story he remained out all of Saturday night, and when he reached his hoble on Ontario avenue, in the county, at an early hour yesterday morning his wife attacked him with a brick, which she used on his head, and inflicted a wound on his left hand with a butcher knife, Fannie's version of the difficulty was to the effect that she went out In front of her home to persuade her' husband to go into the house, and that he knocked her down and choked her, and then she struck him with the brick to make him release his hold on ber neck. The woman said her husband later attacked hes with a stone, and that she struck at him with a butcher knife, cutting him on the hand.' Judge Kimball decided that a charge of assault had been substantiated against the woman, and sen tenced her to a tirm of six months In jail.. Judge Kimball communicated with the board of children's guardians, and an ar rangement will be made to have the chil dren's grandmother -care for theap until their mother Is released from jail.
