"OLEO" BILL OPPOSED BY DAIRY
INTERESTS.
Madison, Wis., March 6—(By Union
Associated Press)—The Aswell bill,
which is scheduled to come up before
the special session of congress, or
early in the regular session, is bit
terly opposed by the dairy interests
of Wisconsin and, in fact all of the
States in this section of the country,
It is claimed that the bill, if passed,
will reduce the cost of oleomargarine
and butter and protect the consumer
against inferior products. The dairy
men accuse the dairy interests of
boosting the bill with the view of
boosting the sale of oleomargarine,
| It is alleged that the measure is not
being advocated for the protection of
the consumer, and that it will fail to
reduce the cost to the consumer of
cither "oleo" or butter. The Aswill
bill proposes to change the name of
