BORDEN THE ONLY BIG MILK
MAN CHARGING NINE CENTS
The milk crisis appears to be over
as far as the public is concerned.
Borden Co. is now holding the sack
as the only dealer charging 9 cents a
quart. Ira J. Mix, after trying the
boost for a week, has come back to
8 cents. It is believed the action of
Kee & Chappel in refusing to boost
" the phice knocked the bottom out of
the big boys' plan.
Also, perhaps, the . action of the
Milk Producers' ass'n in organizing
a $500,000 corporation to sell milk
to the people without the middle
man's profit had an awful lot to do
This new organization will be a co
operative affair and has already
made cold chills dance up and down
the spines of the big dealers, who
imagined until last week they con
trolled the milk situation' in Chicago.
Nine thousand farmers are interested
in the new company.
The corporation will also sell all
farm machinery and implements
used in the production of niilk. Sev
eral stores will be opened in Chicago
when plans are completed.

T NO NEWS AS TO DISPOSITION OF
London, May 3. Rumors that
Augustine Birrell, chief sec'y of Ire
land has tendered his resignation
to Premier Asquith because of Dub
lin rebellion were in general circula
No official information is obtain
able on course government will pur
sue toward rebel prisoners brought
to England. It was pointed out, how
ever, that in Boer revolt early in the
war and recent mutinies near Lahore,
India, only leaders were executed,
government treating rank and file of
rebels leniently on ground that tney
had been misled.
Resistance by isolated bands of
rebels engaged attention of govern
ment forces in Ireland yesterday, but
as rapidly as troops reached villages
where rebels had concentrated they
surrendered. Scarcely any sniping
occurred in Dublin.
