No state document which emunated from the White House in many years has been received with greater satis faction and commendation by citizens irrespective of party than has the mes sage of President Mckinley. Those companies who have been ad vertising large cash prizes in the mis sing word contest in many of the pop ular magazines, and who have un doubtedly coined money in that fraud ulent business, have been denied the use of the United States mails. Spanish prisons in Cuba have given up every American citizen within their walls since the in-coming of the McKinley administration. And yet there are people who have the assur ance to complain of the attitude of the administration in regard to Cuba. In July, August and September earnings of eight of the largest rail way systems of the country show in creased earnings of from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 each for the three months.

The growth of the protective senti ment in the south has received a new impetus from the announcement 'hat the entire product of a new and large cotton mill in Alabama, has been con tracted to be delivered in China Thus the south is reaping the bene fit of the protective system, which has made the manufacture of cotton goods so successful as to not only supply the markets of the United States, but to now be able to supply the markets of the world. ANNUAL MEETING OF DAIRY UNION- OHIO Employes and officials of the New Central Railroad at the investigation which was pursued by the Board of Railroad commissioners last week to ascertain the causes of the disastrous wreck at Garrison's on October 24th in which so many lives were lost, ad vanced an entirely new theory, which was to the effect that obstructions had been placed on the track purposely to wreck the train. Testimony from sev eral experts were to the effect that water coming down the mountain side and lodging in the gu'ly to the east of the traces was not sufficient to weaken the bed. William Buchanan superin tendant of motive power, stated his theory by testifying that he found an indentation on the tire of the forward wheel on the right Bide of the engine truck, which in his opinion was caused by the wheel while revolving coming in contact with some obstruction on the Bide of the rail, the tire of the wheel was exhibited as were plaster casts of the indentation, which, how ever were plainly visible on the tire. P. II. Dudley, in his explanation as to the fracture of the inner rail of the track, said that th'j simple derail ment of the engine and train, would not have tore off the nuts, but that they had evidently been tampered with and . knocked off previous to the wreck. At the corner's inquest recently held, as to the cause of the accident and to who to blame, the jury gave the ver dict that the railroad was in no way responsible, and that the cause is un- ' known. A large attendance. Election of Offloers. It Object U to Suppres the Fraudulent Sale of Oleomargarine. The first annual meeting of The Ohio Dairy Union held in Cleveland on Tuesday, Dec. 7th, was a decided suc cess in every particular. The attend ance was good and the interest and enthusiasm manifested was most grat ifying, indicating that the dairymen or the state are disposed to actively par ticipate in a thorough organization throughout Ohio in the interest of pure butter, and foi the suppression of the fraudlent sale of oleomargarine now being so freely made in our markets. The butter interest of Cincinnati was represented, dairymen, cream erymen, and cheesefactorymen from various parts of the state were present, and the Ohio State University and the Experiment Station at Wooster were also represented. Dairy and Food Commissioner Blackburn was present and during an address made to the "Union" stated that he desired that under him the dairymen of Ohio should have control of the Dairy Department. He agreed to appoint any man whom the Union would recommend and give him full charge of prosecutions under our dairy laws. Mr. L, P. Bailey, of Belmont courty, was selected and he will be appointed and will commence his dut ies on January 1st next. Mr. Bailey is a well known breeder of Jersey cattle and is the secretary of The Ohio Dairy men's Association. He is in thorough sympathy with the objects and aims of The Ohio Dairy Union and he may be depended upon to use his best en deavors and the powers conferred up on him by virtue of his office to sup press the unlawful and fraudulent sale of oleomargarine. The following officers were elected : President, E. F. Webajer, of Welling ton : secretary, F. A. Strannahan, 30 Huron St., Cleveland ; treasurer, Geo. C. Campbell, Salem ; executive com mittee. E. F. WebBter, F. A. Stranna han, Geo. C. Campbell, W. B. Straight, Hudson ; D. McCray, Urbana; J. P. Each. Huron, and M. E. Williams, of The Ohio Farmer, Cleveland. The old legislative committee will be re-appointed consisting of O. P. Chapman. Wellington ; W. J. Eldridge, Aurora, and T. H. Rose, Cortland. Possibly two more members may be added to it. Seven vice-presidents were added to the twenty-one previously appointed, making twenty-eight in all; thirty counties now being represented in the Union. The board of officers and committees consists of seven cheese manufactures, thirteen proprietors of creameries, fifteen dairymen, two com mission merchants, one representative of The Ohio State University and one representative of The Ohio Farmer. F. A. Derthick, chairman of the execu tive committee of the Ohio Grange, is one ol fie vice-presidents anu is thoroughly interested in the success of The Ohio Dairy Union. He is present ing the claims of the Union at various Farmers Institutes ana probably also at the meeting of the Ohio btate Grange at Columbus this week. It is intended by th Ohio btate Dairy Union to interest in its work so far as possible all classes who demand the enforcement of oleomargarine laws to protect pure butter from the dis honest competition of inferior com pounds now being sold as butter in violation oi law. Resolutions were unanimously adopted protesting against the use of oleo in national institutions and es pecially in Soldiers' Homes, declaring that the veterans of the late war are entitled to the same quality of food that is found on the tables of the man agers of the homes, and asking con gress to prohibit the use of substitutes for butter in national institutes: urg ing the general assembly to make such liberal appropriation of funds for the use of the Dairy Department as will enable our officials to suitably enforce our dairy laws; calling the attention of the officials of the treasury depart ment to the fact that the internal rev enue laws are not being enforced; warning the people in city, town and country to keep a vigilant watch for the continual deception practiced in the sale of oleomargarine; appealing to the members or our general assem bly to mako no change in our dairy laws except to strengthen them and calling unon our 3ister- states and es pecially upon dairymen of Indiana to secure effective laws regulating the manufacture and sale of oleomarga rine. A committee was also appointed, who are instructed to prepare a suit able memorial to wholesale and retail dealers in butter, urging their active co-operation with the Ohio Dairy Union in the war upon the unlawful sale of oleo. One hundred and thirty new mem hers were added to the Union at this meeting. It Is intended to continue the work of organization vigorously throughout the winter and it is hoped that by next spring the Ohio Dairy Union will be strong and influential enough in every dairy section of the state to exert a powerful and healthful influence and that it will be in position toseak in tones that will be heard and heeded by the manufacturers and dealers now openly and flagrantly violating our oleo law.
