The Question of Adulteration Dis-
cussed in a Government Report.
Amerlcu One of the Few Countries That
lull to Kequlre by Law the Proper
ltrumliui; of Manufactured
Food and Drugs.
Washington, Sept. 11.—The question
of adulteration of food and drugs in.
this country is discussed in detail in
the report of Special Agent Alexander
J. Wedderburn of the agriculture de-
partment. After referring to the fact
that many stories of adulteration are
grossly exaggerated, the report says:
The attention of foreigners bus been drawn
to the fact that greater or less adulteration
exists among us. As a result foreign compet-
itors of our manufacturers of food products
have used the fact to their own advantage.
America to-day occupies the unenviable posi-
tion of being one of the very few countries that
fail to require by law the proper branding of
their manufactured food and drugs. Whether
i requirements would accomplish the
desired result Is unknown, but the
^11 would be mitigated by wholesome
legislation. This belief is sustained
by the results of the food laws of England and
other foreign countries as well as rif the various
states. The concurrent testimony of the state
official^ charged with the enforcement of state
and local laws is that a national effort is neces-
sary to secure enforcement of state laws. If It
be true thnt it Is impossible for any state to
fully execute its laws no mutter how stringent.
St) long as the original package decision stands
law, then the need of a federal law is im-
The effort to purge the country of this crime
Is doing good and aids in keeping down the
adulteration of the products we consume, but
each year brings to light new articles in which
u method to improve theprolltif not their qual-
ity has been found. That almost every article
if food and drug used in our country is adulter-
ated is proved most conclusively by a vast
mount of information gathered by the depart-
lent. The extent of the practice is as broad
s the continent, but its character injures tho
oeket rather than tho health.
The general character of food adulterations
Is principally commercial fraud, and tho ex-
nt of criminal or poisonous adulteration iu
<h1 is so limited as to amount to but a baga-
telle in the immense sum of products con-
sumed. A large proportion of poisonous adul-
terations arises from carelessness an I iguor-
unce. Hut ignorance is no excuse for
the wholesule destruction of life by the
addition of poisonous pigments to many
articles of food, and especially confection-
ery. cream and like articles. It
has been proved that adulteration is general
and increasing, and that no kind of food, iu
solids or liquids, Is free from the finishing
touches of the manipulators. Whether the In-
tent be criminul and vicious or simply fraudu-
lent the resu t is the same, and the people will
continue to suffer until the strong hand of tho
federal law steps in to supplement and support
the action of the stales
The extent of adulteration is fully 15 per
cent., of which per cent, is of a character in-
jurious to health. Hut to furnish 6't.lM 1,000 peo-
ple with food, drink and drugs cost not less than
|d.tJ70.u0J,00J, and it Is found that the amount
of adulteration reaches the Immense sum of
|l .I04.000.0j0 annually. At least 2 percent, of the
whole is deleterious to health and II3.S,'400.000
constitutes the annual amount paid by Amer-
ican people for sucrlllcc of their lives or injury
of their health.
As there exists no more serious or exhaustive
drain upon thd resources of the people than
the udulterutiou of their food and drug prod-
ucts. the federal government should enact a
law to prevent the transportation of mis-
branded. poisonous or deleterious food UUd
drugs fromune state to another, not interfering
with the police powers of the state. This being
done, the various state laws would become
effective und by systematic effort on the part
of officials or honest dealers and manufactur-
ers. adulterations would be reduced to u mini-
mum and millions of dollars saved annually to
the country. The eo-tl of execution of such a
law would be moderate and should be borne Ov
the manufacturers of food products.

Leavknwortii, Kan., Sept. 11.—Tho
discovery of a ease of small-pox hero
has caused the postponement of tho
opening of the public schools of this
city for two weeks. Two more bus
pected cases were reported this morn*
As Passed by th« Republican County
i We re-affirm our faith in, and our al-
legiance to, the principles of the re-
I publican party as announced in the
. Oklahoma City platform.
I 2. We tender to the country gener-
ally our heartfelt congratulations that
the administration of Urover Cleve-
land has almost half passed away, and
notwithstanding its record of dis-
honor, distress and bankruptcy, which
presages two years more of hard time6,
suffering aud uational shame, yet we
can look forward to the certianty of
the dawn of a better day aud the re-
turn to the principles of good govern-
ment under a republican administra-
3. We congratulate Oklahoma upon
the fact that after two more long and
weary years of waiting she can soon
chase the carpet baggers back to
Georgia and regain her independence
and self respect.
4. We congratulate the democratic
party upon the fact tUat notwithstand-
ing, as King drover says, it is "partd
perfidy aud party dishonor," they have
after thirty years of whoojp and howl
for free trade and of denuneiat:on of
the reduction of the republican princi-
ples of protection as "legalized rob-
bery, at length begun to see the erro*
of their ways and have given to the
country as good a protective tariff bill
as democratic stupidity, backed by au
abundance of sugar, could frame.
5 We demand a high protective
tariff on foreign silver bullion and the
free coinage of the American silver
product, that the currency may be
substantially expended commeuaurate
with the needs of the people.
0. We declare that all foreign crim-
inals, paupers and undesirable ele-
ments should be prohibited from our
shores, and that labor of America may
t>e preserved for Americans, anil that
the socialistic, anarchistic and com-
tuuntatic theories of Europe may not
be transplanted to this couutry to
undermine our institutions and threat-
en our peace and good order.
7. We declare that the democratic
parly now in congress by the admis-
sion of Mormon Utah and of New
Mexico and Arizona, the latter two
territories being spirsely settled and
overwhelmed with debt, and being
peopled largely with foreigners who
disregard our language in their busi-
ness vocations and in their public
shools, whi'e ignoring the petition of
Oklahoma for statehood with its 250,-
00 people truly American and $100,-
•00,000 of taxable property, to be par-
tisan, narrow and unjust, a titting
evidence of the methods of the demo-
ratie party. \N e demand immediate
statehood in the quickest possible way.
H \\ del.ounce the p'ension policy
>f the democratic party as being un-
jnsi and unpatriotic and we congratu-
ate the people of the United States
►n having lisen in their indignation,
•ompelling Hoke Smith to withdraw
his ruling whereby thousands of hon-
est pensioners were declared criminals
without tr a Is and unceremoniously
suspended from the pension roll.
0. We condemn the action of the
county e minissioners in plunging Lo-
gan county into debt beyond the I per
cent limit fixed by the act of congress,
as a crime against the people of the
county and we demand that it shall
be made felony for any board of county
cominisMoners. or any county clck or
any other municipal officer to contract
any debt or issue any warrant in ex-
cess of the 4 per cent limitation with
out having first provided the funds
wherewith to piy such warrants for
10. We demand a law providing for
separate and specific levies for the
payment of officers; for the payment
of court expenses; for the payment of
rents: for the support of the poor, and
for miscellaneous xpenses; that each
levy shall be for the purpose named,
and he kept in a separate fund, and
that it shall be made a folor.y for the
county commissioners or the county
treasurer to transfer any money or
credits from one fund to another or to
use any money in one fund for any
purpose other than that for which it
was lev'ed and lolleetrd, or to draw
any warrant upon any fund except for
the specific purpose for which the levy
was made.
11. We denounce the action of the
populist commissioners of Logan coun-
ty in a'teri pting to disfranchise four
townships for political purposes, ns a
fraud and an ort riu e worthy of the
demoera y of Arkam-asnr Georgia, and
on a par with tin* outrages in those
rta*es of which the populists them-
selves so bitterly complain.
12. We favor the election of honest
men for county commissioners aud we
de.-in it wise and expedient that we
lowe a board of county commissioners
who pre not controlled by the bank.^
anil warjaut dealers.
13. The expenditure by the Logan
county board of county commissioners
of $4#,Itt7.fl5 for county expenses in the
year just past is a shining example of
populist and democratic misrule, dis
honesty aud incompetency that liftt
ruined everything that the party has
ever touched or controlled and ought
to be sufficient recommendation to a!
honest men to secure the permaueut
retirement of these parties.
14. For some time past the revenues
from liquor licenses have been held it
a salary fund to pay the sa'aries of
officers and deputies, and whereas tin
county commissioners of Logan county
have diverted the said revenues to tin
general fund for the purpose of allow
ing the banks who held old warrants
bought at a discount to exhaust funds
and the said board has diverted one
third of all the revenues of the county
from the general fund to a poor fund
making the warrants draw n on such
fund payable in cash, manipulating
such fund so as to pay democratic and
populist officials for unnecessary worl
in cash, and at the same time compel
ling the republican officers and depu
ties to discount their salary warrants
15. There has been turned into the
Logan county treasury since February
23, 1801, when the demo-pops seeurei
| control of the board, about $84,000 fo
county expenses alone. During tin
same time a county debt of about 8140,
ooo has accrued, and, the county has
I nothing to show for the $200,000 ex
pended. except an enormous debt and
a depleted treasury. Therefore it is
evident that a demo-pop county admin
Utration is a luxury too expensive for
a new country, and we suggest to the
voters of Logan county that it is a ca-
lamity from which the taxpayers
should extricate themselves.
10. The county debts in Oklahoma
are partly the result of the accumula-
tion of costs in criminal cases and the
niultitudious criminal cases that oc-
| enpy the time of our courts are largely
the result of malice coupled with the
desire of professional witnesses for
fees, therefore we demand a law such
as that of Indiana or Texas, providing
that the county pay no costs in crim-
inal cases excepting the fees of jurors,
and that it provide further that the
person desiring a ^ury In civil cases
i shall make a deposit to pay the jury
! fees when he makes such demand
I 17. We demand u salary bill fixing
i a specific salary for each and every
county officer aud deputy in the terri-
tory, and provided further that all
: fees earned shall be for the public and
go into the county treasury and make
the retention of fees by any officer in
excess of his salary a felony.
18. It is the duty of every patriotic
citizen by voice and vote to advocate
the retirement of public officers, irre-
spective of party, who have prostituted
] the trust reposed in them for purposes
of gain, and that we demand the vig
I orous prosecution of every officer, if
any there be, who has taken advautage
| of his position to pilfer from the public.
10. We favor a general revision of
our statutes for the purpose of reduc-
ing expenditures and taxatiou, and
that the laws be so formed as to limit
the power of public officers to incur
public expense for the taxpayers to
pay to a reasonable amount and that
the provisions of the criminal code be
made so strict that there is no escape
for the public official who proves re-
creant to the trust reposed in him, and
we urge immediate action thereon by
the next legislature lest by some mis-
hap we again fall under a demo-pop
administration, such as has been spend-
ing the money of the people in Logan
20. We arraign the democratic party
for its repeal of the federal election
law, leaving the people of New York
helpless from the frauds of Tatumauy
aud the ballot in Chicago and other
large cities, as well as 3,000,000 voters
of the south, without protection from
the frauds, intimidation and outrages
boldly pacticed by the democratic
party in order perpetuate itself in
minority rule.
21. We refer with admiration to the
splendid record made by Hon. Dennis
Flynn as delegate in congress, the sev-
enteen measures passed through con-
gress by his introduction effort and
example, his energy and influence,
lie has more than fulfilled the most
sanguine expectations of those who
championed his candidacy two years
ago. His labors have been for the in-
terests of all the people of Oklahoma,
regardless of location or party pro-
clivities. U is record is one which de-
serves and we believe will receive the
endorsement of every voter who haa
at heart the true welfare of thia ter-

The new pharmacy law, in the stat-
utes of Oklahoma 'or 1893, requirea
that all druggists, apothecaries and
other persons, except practicing phy
sicians In their ordinary practice, shall
keep a record of all sales of auy arti
cle or articles belonging to the claa*
usually known as poisons; and pre-
scribes a penalty for each violation
of a fine of tint lot* limn twenty iior more
th4in one hundred dollars.
Few druggists in Oklahoma are ob-
serving this law, and this neglect will
get some of them into trouble.
Suppose some person asks to see
your record of when a poison was sold
to a stated person. The law says you
shall furnish it, and you can be com-
pelled to do so.
Tiik Statk Capital has prepared a
"Poison Record," which gives you the
exact form of record you must keep.
It is put up on first-class paper, neatly
indexed and bound.
We sell these books for $2 50 each,
and keep them in stock ready for you.
