Barrett's Defense of the Ue of Coloring Matters by Manufacturers Opposed by I'aul Pierce. H. W. WILET. Chief of the United States Bureau of Chemistry, who delivered an address on the National Pure Food BUI. Under the surface of the highly learned and educational addresses being delivered at the International Pure-Food Congress in Congress Hall brews an agitation which may result In an open breech be tween the national and State food and clemlcal authorities represented at the convention. The seconod day's se.lon of the con gress was well attended by delegates and by visitors. The addresses were on sub jects which are now In much dispute and were listened to with much Interest by the audience. No note of the pending difference between the State and national authorities was sounded until Paul Pierce, editor of "What to But," said: The Government and State officials have brought about the present efficiency of the pure-food lans. There must be no differences In the standards agreed upon by these officials and at present in force. Any difference will result faulty to the good of pure-food legislation." It was afterward explained that the State officials, not satisfied with th. present national laws, regulating pure food products. Intend to Introduce reso lutions calling for a modification of the stringency of the laws before the end of the session. This, it Is understood, the Federal Representatives will oppose. These resolutions will be introduced be fore the end of the convention and are Intended to be embodied In the pure food laws, to be enacted at the next ses sion of Congress, in December. An interesting Incident In cnonectlon with the holding of the great congress". Is that more than 100 ysars ago.

The congress in session at the World's Fair building is the first international congress of Its character ever held The prophecy of Savarin, made a century agj. Is thus fulfilled. The morning session was opened with an address by A. H. Jones, of the Illi nois State Food Commlslon. He spoke briefly on the results which the congress utu acivTCpiLsneu.

England and France to promote the congress. He tola of the inspections and analyses of foods in these countries, and concluded in- .tat. Ing that the manufacturers had been called into this conference to give their practical viens of the subjects to be dis cussed. "Food Laws and Food Inspection In Italy" was tlw subject of G. Hos jail's ad dress and Doctor W. N. Berkley spoke on "Food Laws and Food Inspection in Porto Rico." The nfternoon session opened with a lengthy address by Rufus L. Weaver of New York City on "Interstate Laws." Sir. Weaver explained the different laws in the States for the regulation of the pure focd products and made comparisons of the leniency of certain States on some products and of the prohibitive legisla tion against these same products In other States. "Notional Food Laws and Inspection In the United States" was the subject of an address by Doctor H. W. Wiley. Chief United States Bureau of Chemistry. Doc tor Wiley gave the history of the devel opment of the present pure-food laws from the earliest attempt of the Federal Government to Inspect and regulate the Importation of tea. EDITORS DISAGREE. F. N. Barrett, editor of the American Grocer of New York City, followed with what many of the members of the con gress believed was a defense of the manufacturers who used coloring matters In their products. The speaker argued in favor of these acids on the ground that there was too little used to be of any harm to any of the consumers. Paul Pierce, with whom Mr. Barrett, it Is said, has had many editorial contests, took the opposite aide of the question. He decried the use of all coloring matters. He urged the proper labeling of all prod ucts. "The roan who sells me a pound of but ter under a false label Is Just as guilty as the man who sells me a gold brick, said Mr. Pierce, "He should not only be arrested, convicted, and fined, but the fine should not be revoked, as It has been done In many Instances. The efficacy of the law Is dealt a blow by the remission of these fines and should not be. "An Important work is being accomp lished by your association and this work ought to have the approbation of the united press. The feasible and effective way of eradicating the evils of deleterious food products. Is through publicity. These products are talked about and the com munity sets a nrovedentlal wirnlnr There is no question about the efficacy I of the wide and fearless press. I regrad ' this as one of the surest and most cer- i tain ways of eliminating the evils of'l fosd Adulterations." I ,- He 'finished a remarkably etreng ad-j j tf t m gjjg.w . - IP4 -&?.

Director of Works Taylor has announced, bids will be advertised for the wrecking of the great exhibit palaces and other structures erect ed by the Exposition Company on the World's Fair grounds. The aj5roach of the dosing day of the World's Fair has led the Grounds and Iiuildlne Committee cf the Exposition to consider this Question, and the decision to advertls for bids for the demolition of the great structures was the result.
