Arthur Brisliane, in one of his d illy
editorials in the New York Evening
Journal, quotes, as he says, from the
circular of a Philadelphia whisky
firm, as follows:
Possibly 92 or 93 per cent of tlie
whisky sold in Pniladelpliia is what is
technically termed by the trade
“blende! whisky.” The manner of its
preparation is about as fo lo vs: For a
barrel ol 48 gallons possibly 38 to 40
gallons of cologne spirits are put Into
a .tank—cologne spirits being the
either of the whisky, which passes
from the still in the process of distill­
ing, as benzine precedes Illuminating
oil in the dis'illing of petroleum. It
is a neutral spirit, having no taste; but
its effect up >n the human system is
very pernicious, and, when taken to
excess, it dies to the brain aod pro­
duces very unpleasant results. To
thia 30 or 4 gallons of cologne spirits
possibly foui gallons of straight
whisky are added, together with two
gallons of prune juice, two gallons of
peach juice and a little vanilla, pine­
apple or some other flavor to give it a
distinctive and pronounced character.
Thia compound, or blend, is allowed
to stand for some months, until the
component parts are all blended. The
compound is then bottled or barreled,

Commutation Act in Danger e
Chairman Lacey of the public lands

ment against repealing the commuta­

no alarming increase in the number of
commuted homesteads tn late yeais,

trary, he maintained that the depart­

Representative Mondell of Wyom­

Senator Fulton, who happened to be
present, expressed the off-hand view
that no reason existed why the com­
mutation law should be repealed.
