Paymaster W. B. Rogers, of the
general storekeeper's department at
the Brooklyn navy yard, left recently
from Sherman, N. Y.. to make a pre
liminary Inspection of SS.OOO pounds tt
butter constituting the first consign
ment on contracts for a half a million
pounds which havs Just been signed by
representatives of the United States
navy and the firms of Swift A Co. of
Chicago and James Rowland ft Co, of
SO Hudson street, Manhattan. ine
contract with Rowland ft Co. for J50.00C
pounds, was executed at the local navy
yard, where the entire 500.000 pounds
will be delivered.
This Is the largest contract ever
given by the navy department for a
vear's supply, and Is believed to be
the largest butter contract ever en
tered Into anywhere. It was at first
Intended to awad the entire contract.
Involving about $150,000. to one Arm,
but upon further consideration It was
decided that It would be a rood plan
to secure part of the supply from the
west and cart from the east. This will
afford a thorough opportunity of mak
ing a comparison between the two.
This halt a million pounds of butter
wilt be consumed by the enlisted men
of Uncle Sam's navy during the fiscal
year that began on the first day of
July. It will be distributed through
the office of the general storekeeper at
the navy yard here, who will issue It
to the different vessels as require J.
The contract provides for the Immedi
ate delivery of 25,000 pounds, the re
mainder to be furnished as called for.
Specifications of the Contract
The specifications on this contract
relative to the quality of butter that
will be required furnish an excel.ent
Indication of the care taken to prevnt
any article of food not absolutely pure
from being Issued to the sailors ot
the United States. It Is to be of the
brand known as "extra creamery, ana
must pass a chemical test before leav
ing the dairy.
It is all furnished In three-pound
cans prepared after a prescribed pro
cess. The cans must be made of the
best charcoal tin, redipped before sol
dering. The milk from which the but
ter Is made must all be sterilized. The
butter will have to be packed at the
place of manufacture. The cans will
be sealed after a special process mak
ing them absolutely air-tight, and will
then be wrapped In paper and packed
In heavy wooden cases. These will be
of delivery at the New York navy yard.
For such butter they will be paid at
the rate of V.X cents a pound. '
But before it Is accepted, Uncle Sam
will put hta own men to work to de
termine whether It comes up to his
specifications. At the chemical labor
atory, established at the yard for just
such purposes, the butter will be given
three separate testa. As soon aa It ar
rives at the yard, sample cans will be
selected at random and the contents
tested as to the quantity of salt, the
amount of water and the amount of
general Impurities they contain.'
If the percentages are found to be
In'accord with the stipulations In the
contract, the butter will be accepted.
It must all grade above 93 and con
tain leas than IS per cent of water.
Iowa farmers will furnish a good part
of the amount A Sioux City cream
ery Is to furnish 230.000 pounds, and
one at Montlcelio will turn out 100,000
pounds. Pennsylvania dairies will fur
nish the balance.
Greasing Boat Bottoms With Butter.
It Is only within the past year that
the Jack tars have been getting such
a large quantity of butter. The new
ration which went Into effect last year
Includes a liberal allowance, and It Is
highly appreciated by the man-of-war's
men. In order that none of It
should be put to a wrong use the
navy department has deemed It wise
to Issue special orders that no butter
shall be used for machinery lubricating
purposes or for greasing the bottoms
of boats, launches and cutters that are
to take part In races. There was an
Instance not long ago where every man
on a warship contributed part of his
dally butter ration for the purpose of
greasing uo the bottom of a cutter
that was to race against that of an
Wonderful things can be done with
half a million pounds of butter. Two
hundred and fifty tons would be suffi
cient to spread enough slices of bread
to hand one to each voter who will
step Into an election booth thla full to
cast a ballot for Roosevelt or Parker.
One pound would be sufficient to spread
30 good-slsed slices, so the amount to
be furnished on the contract would
cover 15,000,000 slices, which may be
expected to go around. It will require
188,687 cans to contain It all. Figur
ing the height of each can at six Inches,
there would be enough to reach 6944
feet into the air. If the pile stood In
