GET AFTER THE
Alleged That Some Deal
ers Are Taking Advan
tage War to Raise
The Food Administration Is turn
ing the full power of its enforce
ment machinery against dealers who
are taking advantage of the present
atrlngeney in butter supplies and are
reaping heavy profits from the rising
market. * Its inspectors throughout
the country have been instructed to
center their work upon Investiga
tiona of butter operations and to ob
tain a check upon the recent activi
ties of dealers.
Some manufacturers and dealers
1 who had stored late butter have
been taking advantage of a rising
market to remove their goods and to
sell, aa fresh butter, on account
of an advanced market.
This .Is a clear violation of Food
Administration rulings, which state
that butter, both fresh and storage,
shall be sold at prices not to ex
ceed stipulated margin of profit over
cost. The dealer Is not allowed to
sell on the basis of replacement val
ue. This eliminates all possibility
of speculation, as the dealers in but
ter are not allowed to profit by ab
normal advances in market quota
Telegrams have been sent to Fed I
eral Food Administrators, instruct I
ing them to take decisive measures!
in their- States to keep a close check
on butter operations and to take
vigorous action wherever violations
are disclosed. The Inspectors have
been notified that they are expected
to center their attentions upon these
operatioqs and to make a thorough
investigation of tho entiro butter

John T. Splckett says the air Is
full of politics and it reminds him
of his boyhood days when he lived
in an Irish ward in Detroit, his
home city. It was an Irish ward
and most of the Irishmen were Dem
ocrats, while Splckett belonged to
"de Republican gang." Most of
the voters could not read, but knew
that the mark of the "agle" repre
sented the Democratic ticket. To
get their vote for the Republicans,
the Republican ballot was headed
by a printed "agle." "I survived
the wreck,' "said Mr. Splckett, "but
after the trick played on them was
discovered, I looked as if I had
gone through a threshing machine."

ALLIES EMPLOY CHINESE
LONDON. Oct. 2G?The Allies have'
employed 50.000 Chinese behind the'
righting lines in France principally i
for road and railway building, black-1
smith and carpentry work. Although j
China declared war on the Central!
Powers almost a year ago the Chin-I
cse are made to understand that |
when transported to France they will
not be used in the fighting lines.
Coolies are paid about $13.50 a;
month, and pay for other laborers
ranges upward to about $27 a month
for skilled men. In addition they
are given $250, a fabulous sum for
"ooliesf as a bonus for embarking'
'or France, $75 in case of injury
ind $150 Is given to the next of kin
n case of death.
THE DELEGATE AND THE j
Wlckltcs assert that Dele- ^
gate Sulzer has done too much
work in the Senate. They
have shouted that a Delegate's
seat is in the House. Dele
J gate Sulzer has admitted that
j he did a great deal of work in

wanted to get results. He has ]
letters from Senator Walsh
of Montana, Senator Cham
berlain of Oregon, Senator
Kendrlck of Wyoming and
others that indicate that he
did that tvork well.
Judge Wickersham said
two years ago and often he- 1
