WASHINGTON LETTER. Hepburn's Pure Food Bill. Few, if any, committees of Congress have done as much good and servicable work as that over which that veteran from Iowa, Col. W. P. »Hepburn, pre sides. He has brought out more im portant work since congress assembled than has any other committee of that body. Especially is this true of the Nicarauguan Canal bill, which was promptly endorsed by the House, and now be reportB the most important bill ever before Congress in leBS than 30 minuteB after the hearings closed, viz: The pure food and drug bill. There is not a shadow of a doubt that, if the House is allowed to vote on this bill, that it will pass almost unanimously there will not be 25 votes against it. We have no idea that the roll will be called. There has never been a measure of such importance, that secured such general approval as thi?, and it should, as it is In the interest of all the people. It pro tects health, morals and the pockets of the classes who consume, aud the busi ness integrity of those who sell them The passage of this bill will link the name of Colonel Hepburn with the most useful and most important bill ever en acted by CongrcBs. Every consumer of food and drugs and drinks must desire to secure only products that are .not in jurious to health, and unless they are very careless, they must deBire to get what they ask and pay for, when they pay out their money, and this is just what the Hepburn bill enables them to do. Every mother who baB a son desires him to be taught when he goes into business to act honorably, and always tell the truth. This is secured by this bill. Write your Senators and Itepre- Bentatives and urge them to support the Hepburn bill and see the Speaker and ask him to allow it to be considered. Deutmeyer-Rubly.
