RUINED BY DUPLICITY.
Why Our Cheese Export Trade It Wrecked. AID CANADA HAS OUT US OUT. •o Called "Filled" ChecM la the Omm af It—A Saleldal Fraud aad aa Oatrace oa Honest Producer*—Soma Startling Fl#- [Special Correspondence.] WASHINGTON, April 18.—Onoe more the American farmer. The public may think It has heard enough about his troubles and many congressmen havo taken up the tone of stigmatising those who portray said troubles as "calamity howlers," but the farmer is before the committees again on some comparatively new Issues and I am glad to add that they are very practical. They are Introduced, howover, with summary of woes the mere examination of which has depressed me so that I feel as If this letter should be printed In blue ink and read with smoked spectacles. Out of the mass two facts stand established and Important—the first that American farm ers aire now unanimous in the conclusion that wheat as a money maker is done for and cotton little better, and that for many years. Indeed, the buoollo experts who have just testified declare that Instead of the 9,600,000,000 bushels, the largest world crop ever raised, which averaged the pro ducers 00 cents at ports of shipment, with in seven years probably, and ten oertalnly, the world will produce 5,000,000,000 bush els a year, which will average between 40 and 60 cents at the points of export ship ment. I hate like sin to believe It, but their arguments aro unanswerable. The second fact is that all the associa tions which can bo said to ropresont farm ers are unanimous in urging that all prod ucts must bo turned at least once before leaving the country—that is, instead of exporting oorn, wheat, hay, oats and so forth we must soil butter, cheese, meat and blooded horses. And here is vrJiero the prompt action of government is evoked, for It so happens that just as this change of export staples becomes imperative evory country we ship to is cither in trouble which makes it a poor customer or en gaged In a mean and sneaking fight against our products. And it is astonishing how muoh harm they have done us, aided not fk little by our own foolishness. I take cheese as a specimen because the fight on it Is hot just now, and as Representative David F. Wllber of the Twenty-first New O ia 1660 UN/T6.D $TA7£S CAM AD A A COMPARISON OF CHEESE EXPORTS. York is the active man of the committee on this subject I sought his help to begin with. Mr. Wllber ought to know a good deal about cheese, as he was reared In the center of cheesedom, worked at the busi ness for years and is one of the great milk cattle breeders of the country. How the Trade Was Kqlned. "It Is pretty much our own fault," said Mr. Wllber, "for we have allowed these fellows to make a counterfeit to run hon est cheese out of the market, and If you fancy this Is a small thing, or that I am engaged in a petty business, just look at these figures. Here the New York city Produce Exchange shows that in 187B there were exported from that oity to England 8,776,800 boxes of cheese, valued at over 916,600,000, while it has of late years run down so rapidly that this year the exports cannot possibly exoeed 600,000 boxes, val ued at 93,000,000, which is a decline of 918,000,000 in the years when the Increase should have been very muoh greater than that. Now look at these late figures from Canada, which show that the shipments from Montreal in 1879 were 626,000 boxes, and last year they were 9,148,864 boxes, worth 918,000,000, every pound of it to England and a conclusive proof that they have gained nearly all that we have lost. And, furthermore, I know that at least 10,000,000 pounds of good New York cream cheese have been taken to Montreal, re boxed and branded as Canadian cheese to be sold to England. You know how easily the English can be prejudiced against our products, and the shipment of a few car goes of this filled cheese has ruined a trade 10 or 90 times as great. It is suicidal. It Is a fraud on oustomers and an outrage on honest producers." "But is filled cheese unwholesome?" "Unquestionably. In the first place you know that skimmed milk of the ordinary kind is far Inferior in the matter of health to pure milk, but the new system em ployed at the great Elgin creameries—and It is in northern Illinois that nearly all this fillod choose is made—takes every par ticle of natural oil out of the milk, leaving nothing but cusein. Now the old stylo of skimmed milk made 'white' oak' cheese and everybody could toll what it was un less it was very skillfully oolored, but this oampletolv emasculated milk, to borrow a -word, is too thin to make anything and so they add pork fat, SO pounds to 100 of tbo milk. Sometimes thoy odd cottonseed oil and have usod othor things and somotimos add miscellaneous stuff they call 'noutrals,' but generally it is pork fat. Now they can not heat it above 140 dogroes because it would not mix and that leaves in all theso bacteria or triohlnas or what not, which aro supposod to bo killed by a thorough cooking. And who knows what kind of fat it is? And it is right in the loin fat that the trlohinre aro at thoir best. Why Mr. Sands, who is tlio lurgest manufac turer of this counterfeit olieose, declared •ha* ha could not take pork into his stpai- •oh In ray form whatever without suffer ing gnat distress. Yet he Imposes this enormous proportion of It on the ignorant who think thoy are buying dairy produots. Now isn't that a nice trick to play on an orthodox Jew? And the Jews like cheese and are In the habit of using a great deal of It, but they won't eat so muoh hereafter, I think. In fact, we have learned lately that hundreds of boxes are being shipped back to the wholesalers, especially front the south. Adulterated Compounds. "Now I havo some feeling on this mat ter because I have long known that it was a great Injury to my constituents, and as soon as elected I went to work on It to perfect a bill whloh should cover every point. Representative Cook of Wisconsin, which state is next to New York In pro ducing good cheese and has the same stringent laws against filled oheese, brought In a bill. Ho ma# an honest effort to meet the oase and his bill was good so far as it went, but all the cheese men deolared that it was somewhat de fective in the matter of definition. I went over every point carefully with practloal men and my bill has been Indorsed by all the dairymen and by every witness before the committee except one and he a man who holds patents for the making of filled oheese. And after all this the committee now proposes to set my bill aside for a substitute which Is in the nature of a rev enue measure, a sort of weak disguise." At this point Mr. Wllber became a trifle emphatic, but added nothing as to the facts. I find, to my amazement, that there are recorded in the patent offioe no less than 70 patents for making oleomargarine, and several for this filled oheese, but, ow ing to the combine, I cannot determine the number. In the specifications over 60 substances aro mentioned as entering into these imitation butters and cheeses, among whloh I particularly note sugar of lead, blsulphate of limo, boraolo acid, orris root, bltarlo acid, glycerin, cuprio aold, alum, capsto acid, cows' udder, commercial sul phurio acid, butyric othor, caustic potash, castor oil, slippery elm bark, oil of sun flower seed, stomach of pigs, sheop or calves, dry blood albumen and ooloring mat tor. Moroiful hoavenl I now know why I have recently lost my taste for cheese, and it was but a slight satisfaction to give our grocor a blowing up. He de clares, however, that tho compound he has boon selling us came to him in the regular line of trado and that the whole retail business is completely demoralized on this subjeot. I find also that even in the free lunch saloons, where a man will ordinarily eat anything, this new kind of oheese has produced symptoms of revolt, and one pro prietor jocularly informed me that it took twice as muoh beer "to make a slug of it go down" as of the "crumbly New York cheese," and consequently it was good business to use it. Borne Startling Flpm The reader probably has all on this sub jeot that a common stomach will endure, or at least I have, and so I close it with the latest figures from the agricultural de partment. It appears that in 1860 the United States exported 10,361,189 pounds of cheese, and Canada only 17,100 pounds, while in 1880 the United States exported 113,603,609 pounds, and Canada 40,676, 866. The next year the United States got up to nearly 119,000,000, and then the tide turned, the one country running down as rapidly as the other ran up, until last year the United States exported but 60,448,421, and Canada 146,004,660 pounds. It fur ther appears that while the industry was on the rise It almost entirely exoluded for eign cheese, only a few fancy brands being imported, but now we are again getting good common cheese from abroad. Fur ther, that New York produces nearly half of our choose, and that state and Wisconsin a little over two-thirds of all, Wisconsin having the best laws and the best enforced against the counterfeits. As near as I can determine from tho figures, the filled cheese costs the maker a fraction over 4 cents a pound and is wholesaled at 6, but it re tails hero at 13, and in some cases as high as 16, and it did retail in tho south regu larly at 16 until, as one disgusted witness put it, "oven the niggers refused to have anything to do with it." Raid on Counterfeiters. The dairy commissioner of Minnesota testified that the honest manufacture there had fallen off enormously and 19 oheese factories were discontinued last year. Wis consin reports that 64,000,000 pounds of oheese and 74,000,000 pounds of butter were made in that state last year, that the filled cheese makers have been driven over the line into Illinois and that so far the people have been tolerably well protected against the counterfeit. Mr. James F. Oyster (snggestlve name) of this city, dealer in dairy produots, has made an in dependent raid on the counterfeits and prosecuted 96 oases. He says he oould make 100 oases successful If the depart ment would give enoouragement. Mem bers of oongress testify that within a week they have had filled oheese set before them at restaurants and oleomargarine whloh they oould not by the looks distinguish from the best dairy butter, but the taste soon detected both. I presume everybody knows of the war being made on our hogs in foreign oountrles, that Great Britain has lately ordered our cattle to be slaugh tered at the port of entrance under pre tense of pleuro pneumonia and that It Is proposed In parliament, with good ohanoes of adoption, that sheep also shall be ex oluded and other food products severely re stricted. If we are to lose our choese trade also, we shall be left to stew in our own fat with no place to export the surplus. It is refreshing to add, however, that the de mand for blooded horses Is increasing and witnesses from the west think tW will soon be making more money in that line than they did when common horses were worth three times as muoh as now. As to wheat, the figures are simply ap palling. The doouments tell of 200,000 square miles of the finost wheat land in the world In Siberia whloh is made avail able by the great Russian railway, of a nearly equal area brought into uso by the transoaspian railway, of the uso of Ameri can machinery doubling the yiold of southern Russia in a few years, of the north Cauoasus region being suro to ex port 40,000,000 bushels by 1900, of 900, 000,000 bushels a year to oomo from Ar gentina when railroads oxtend tho culture away from the river bottoms and of our own yield being increased at lea^t 96 por cent by improved methods without adding an aore to tho culture. And cliunj) as whoat is mankind are uotually eating less of it every year, for rice, potatoes and rye are cheapor still and by tho now mothod in troduced into Siam and India it is olaimod that rice will largely supersedo wheat oven in Great Britain. It was supposed that five bushols por capita was tho consumption, but the department has shown that it i9 really a fraction loss than four bushels and decreasing, a painful proof that ovon in this blessed land of liberty thero are mil lions of people who oannot afford wheat bread. Assuredly It is hiah time for con- grees and the department to do something for our meat and dairy exports, for as far as grain la concerned the farmers' goose la cooked and eaten. J. H. BEADLE. CARLISLE AT CHICAGO. leeMterjr Addressee of the Treasarjr Labor lag Men. CHICAGO, April 17.—Hon. J. G. Car lisle spoke on the currency question at the Auditorium before an aadienoe that filled the great hall to the utter* most. The address was delivered un der the auspioes of the laboring men Chicago and they were there in fi force, nearly three-quarters of the crowd being workingmen. Many local Democrats were anxious to obtain an interview with Mr. Car lisle on the political situation in Ken* tacky, but he firmly deolined to talk politics in any way. He said that he had come to Chicago to make an ad* dress on the currency question and that nothing could induce him to talk poll* tics. His address was greetq/I With much applause and gave great satisfac tion to his hearers. WILL ARBITRATE CLAIMS. te liMalin SeMlo Beriag Sea Treaty.

It was verbally amended by the committee on foreign relations but not to an extent to materially change its purport. The senate ratified it without making any changes in addi tion to those made by the committee and without any dissenting vote The agreement was explained by Senator Snerman, chairman of the committ|e on foreign relations, and by Senators Gray and Cullom. Senators Hoar and Chandler criticized the wording of the document, but interposed no obstacle in its final disposition. DOMINION GIVES IT UP. Manitoba Remedial School Withdraw* From Parllameat. OTTAWA, Ont., April 17.—At 11:80 o'clock last night Sir Charles Tupper, in the house of parliament, rose to withdraw the remedial bilL He said he did so on the grounds of obstruction. It would be necessary to go into supply at onoe, and therefore the bill could not be further proceeded with. He did not say that it would not be taken up after the supply was granted. He moved that the committee rise and re* port progress. Laurier, in reply, denied obstruction and showed that the opposition had amended and perfected every clause of the bill that was passed. The govern ment had a large majority and ought to have introduced the bill earlier and put it through. Whose fault was it, he asked, that the crisis took place in the cabinet, that ministers resigned, and that the bill was not gone oa with until after two months of the session had passed. It was not the fault of the opposition but of the government and he was prepared to leave to the judgment of the people the charge of obstruction laid against him and his party. The Howe Adjourned. OTTAWA, Ont., April 17.—The house adjourned at 2:30 a. m., after being continuously in session since Monday at 3 o'clock. WILL SOON BE FOR SALE.

BRADLEY IS FIRST And McKinley Second Choice of Kentucky Republicans For President. Bradley Men Had Bnt a Small Majority in the State Convention. Platform Declares For a Gold Standard--Other Political Gatherings. Louisvius, Ky., April 17.—The Re publican convention resumed its Work with the prospect of at least two more protracted sessions before the remain der of its task, the adoption of a plat* form, and the eleotion of delegates, al ternates and electors, is disposed of. On a test vote the Bradley men had majority of 91 out of a total vote of 1,076. This did not include a number of contests which have since been de rided. The work of the credentials oommittee has served to slightly lessen the Bradley majority, but still leaves the governor's friends on top. At 9:60 the chairman announced that the first business in order was the re port of the'eommittee on resolutions. The oommittee was not ready, and nominating speeches were reported. The rules were suspended, and Judge O. S. Deming of Laurel county, and Samuel Cash of Clay, were chosen as electors at large for the state. The resolutions committee then filed upo the stage and through its ohair mau presented its report. The reading of the resolutions aroused the greatest interest yet manifested in the proceed ings of the convention. The speaker had proceeded but a few seconds, when he came to the declaration against free silver. This caused the greatest dem onstration of the day, except the one when the presidential candidates were reached. The latter came close to gether, and the enthusiasm was about equally divided, the greater part of the convention taking part in both demon strations. The resolutions of instruc tions are as follows: Bradley First, MeKinloy Second. Believing in the availability and fit ness of Governor William O. Bradley •s a presidential candidate, mindful of the splendid victory under his leader ship, proud of his executive ability, knowing the soundness of his views on the tariff and financial questions, and confident that his nomination will se cure for the Republican party the elec toral vote of Kentucky and other Southern states, we declare him our choice for the presidency, and instruct the delegates elected by this convention as delegates from the state to the next Republican national convention to cast their votes for him as presidential nomi nee. But in the event that his name is withdrawn from before the St. Louis convention, and he ceases to be voted for there, then they are directed to cast their votes for the Hon. William McKinley, the great friend of protec tion, as long as his name shall remain before the convention. Other resolutions endorse the Repub lican administration, the last Republi can house of the legislature, and con demn the Democratic senate for de feating legislation necessary to the financial welfare of the state. The platform was adopted without opposition, but it is an empty victory for the Bradley men, whose plan has been to give the delegates straight in structions. The McKinley men are jubilant over their success in forcing recognition from the faction which has controlled the convention from the out set. The convention then proceeded to the election of delegates at large. JUDGE EDGERTON OVERRULED It la Beld Illegal to Sell Liquor to In dian* Who Aro Cltisen*. Sioux FALLS, S. D., April 17.—The United States grand jury was dis charged, after breaking the record of previous juries, by returning 96 indict ments in six days. Judge Riner caused a commotion by overruling Judge Edgerton. A year ago Judge Edgerton decided that the gale of liquors to Indians holding lands in severalty was not illegal, and dis charged the prisoners held under that charge. Judge Riner decides it is against the law, and sentenced Joseph V. Tourgell of Fort Pierre to 80 days imprisonment. Will Box With Choynski. SAN FRANCISCO, April 17. Joe Choynski, champion heavyweight of the Pacific coast, will box eight rounds with Tom Sharkey. Sharkey was formerly a sailor at the Mare Island navy yard, and his friends believe he will put Choynski to a severe test. The betting, however, is 2 to 1 in favor of Choynski. The contest will take place before the National Athletic club. Northwestern Flonr Output. MINNEAPOLIS, April 17.—The North western Miller reports the flour output last week at Minneapolis as 251,693 barrels, against 190,050 barrels the pre vious week and 151,195 barrels in 1895. At Superior and Duluth the output was 24,920 barrels last week against 26,185 the week before and 88,040 last year. The flour market is quiet Captured an Escaped Bridge. ROYALTON, Minn., April 17.—The Mississippi bridge that was swept away by ice, logs and high water, lodged ou an island about a mile below, right side up, and apparently in good shape. The business men are taking steps to securo it, and as soon at the water subsides they will have it brought back to its place. The piers are mostly all right. Ei-Unt.
