Against Change In Oleo Law.
State Master Stetson of Maine said
recently in a newspaper interview that
the Maine members of the grange are
particularly interested in the pro|*osed
repeal of the oleomargarine law and
the furthering of the parcels post.
Manufacturers of oleo propose to in­
troduce a bill in congress which will
allow them to label their product "but
ter," but if such u bill is put in it will
lie strenuously opposed by the agricul­
tural interests The grange wants also
to see the parcels post extended be­
cause it believes it will be a gond
thing.
When asked what the attitude of the
grange would be on the proposed re
■ubmissiou of the prohibitory law, Mr.
Stetson said that no effort would be
made to oppose the passage of such a
bill, but that the Main,- grange would
'strongly oppose the repeal of the pro
hibitory law.
A Prominent Maine Patron.
Governor Plnlsted has named lion.
Obadiah Gardner, former master of the
Maine state grange, as chairman of the
state hoard of assessors. This is the
first appointment under the new law.
The state grunge has two out of the
three members of the board, the other
