Investigation by Referee Brown in New York reveals some interesting facts concerning the milk trust and the profits made by the members of it Tr nnnears that in 1909 the prof its on milk were double the amount of the profits of 1908. The referee the trust as conclusiveevidenceonthis point. Witness alter witness msisieu that the figures were correct and then declared that tuey- made no more money this year than last year, a somewhat astonishing 'statement in view of the apparently conclusive evidence of their own books, which show that the profits made by the trust during a period of six months amounted to nearly $50,000, while for the 12 months of 1908 they made $42,639. The trust claimed that the farmer had received more money this year than he did last year, but tne books show that the farmers were nairi Ipss in 1909 than they were paid in 1908. The more this milk inquiry is pursued the more apparent De comes the necessity of protecting the consumers. The farmer who furnishes the milk to the trust receives barely enough to pay the actual cost of keeping his cows and delivering the milk at the railway station. The consumers pay more than they have paid before. The evidence seems per fectly conclusive that the middleman gets the lion's share, and an unjust share of the profits of the milk in dustry.
