THE IMPORTATION OF
From Hoard 'a Pmrytiuin:
The loworlWRof the titriu" ha result
ed in the importation of simiio foreign
but tor, as would naturally lc expected.
This, nt first, caused some tino:winea
anion t; dealers in Witter, who ooulil not
forseo tho otent to vhich foreign but
ter would bo imported in tho future.
This fiIiiiir is responsible for tho ro
cent Huctuntions in the prices of but
ter. Farmers nmt everybody else should
remember ttmt there is still a tn of
2 conts per pound on butter. Ailili S
to this tho railroad and stonmthip
charges for transportation, we find
that the American producer h a pro
tection of about -4 cents a pound Vtn
should bo sutliciont to oiTset tho di (Ter
ence, in the cost of labor in foreign
eountrios. In Kurnpo women and child
ren porform a great deal of the outside
labor, which reduces the cost of pro
duction considerably in these eountrios.
The greatest advant ige. however,
that the Kuropoan farm t Im. over the
American farmer lies in the fact t'it
he receives much more butterfat jer
caw than the American far nor does
This i only natural whe 1 nvo co.isi.Kt
that the European farmer give m e
thought and care to the ftedinR, and
breeding and ceneral welfare of his
livestock. In other words, he is mak
iutr dairying a businefs instead of a
mere side issue. 1 think I am safe in
saving that he gets from one-third to
one-half more butterfat per cow than
the average American farmer dues
.My Arm conviction is, nevertheless,
that when the American farmer turns
his attention to dairying seriomly an I
once realizes what tho problems are. li
will devise some mean which will en
able him to produce more cheaply. He
will never put his women and children
to work in the rieKK lie will meet
this kind of competition by more hu
manitarian methods, and by the appli
cation of skill and science to atrrlcjl
lural and dairy problems.
Even should another political party
eome into power s-oon, it is doubt: ll if
we will ever a train have a much higher
tariff on dairy pioducU. We certainly
cannot expect to have a taritf of 6cenu
pound on butter as we have had up
to the present time.
A certain amount of competition is a
(rood thing. It stimulate?. The dairy
min is much like the man on a bicycle.
He a 't Und still. He hag eider got
to go forward or fall over. I believe he
will gj f jrward.
T!'e quality of the European butter,
t u:: us a whole, is superior to Ameri
c terter. This is because the Euro
I?an fmef not only gives more atten
U t feeding and breeding cattle, but
ho alto takes greater care of the milk
and cream that he se.nds to tho manu
facturer. And the manufacturer of
butler is like the manufacturer of any
other article. His finished orjduct de
ponds for its quality on the kind of raw
The cjuntries from which we may
expect competition are New Zealand,
Australia, Argentine Republic, and
Siberia. '-Voile some butter has been
imported from Denmark, 1 do not look
f ir mjeh butter from that country.
Tho ::nih people already have estih-
traie with Great Britain. The
h.ne are very fun 1 of go d
to eat and they an; one of tK
"st onvJmers of butter in th
. Tney demand a very fine irr.i .

The Paiih butter coots .1IJ cent ,

money in the importation of butter of
Last luno.W. IHr-of butter were
brought into this country through San
Francisco, 2 lbs. in July, ami MV lbs.
in August. These, of course, were
sample lots of butter. In October tM.
200 lbs. were imported, in Novem
ber .tl5.StO, in December asi,al. and
in January 74l. IM lbs. This butter
oi.sts from & to 30 cents per piund.
The great bulk of this butter came
Irom Now Zealand when our market
broke. Kvorvono who iniHrted this
nutter has rout money on It. not only '
because of the drop in the prices, but ;
because some of the New Zealand but-!
ter which was stored when the prices
went down, turmtd tlshy. As a result,
dealers who had contracted for further I
shipment, sent them on to England,
profering to lake their losses over
there rather than keep it in this country
! lui-ex1". J far with foreign
j buttt-: .svH.vU thtt the lowering of
i the t. trill may hnve the same etrect a
J opening up tfato that have shut out
water from a low plnce. The water
rushes in with a tremendous velocity
that looks for a while as if it would
sweep everything berore it; nut on
the turmoil sulfides mid the water
falls back and finds it own level.
Most of the foreifn countries were
verr anxious to test our markets. They
have tested them and so far without
much success. I expect to see condi
tions readjust themselves very soon.
Our greatest nov I in America tud
is more co-operation among the agri
cultural interests and greater study
, and attention to general agricultural
j oroblomtt. We are blessed in this coun
try vith excelle.it .il anil climate con
ditions. Our soil in the central west is
adapted to the growth of all forage
plants. We do njt have to use ferltlix-
ers as they do in Europe. Hence, we
can produce food of all kind more
cheaply than they can. if we apply the
same amount of skill and attention.
The European farmer has to give
strict attention to firming in order to
make a livelihood, as their soil is not
as productive as ours. He must maki
the very' best use of hh materials and
In closing. I repeat thax I do nut see
anything alarmin in the dairv situu
t on. The iittie competition which we
will have will pr jve a healthy stimulus
to our farmers ; it may seem hard fur
awhile, but I believe It will work out
all right in tho end.;

This Denmark is at present supply.,

to expect the Danish will ive up th.

It may be safely stbted that the im
portation of furoign bi' cr into th.
country will not effect our best fjr.i
of butter, as this will be superior t
the butter sent from the othc-r -r

stimulate our people so that .vn v. .1
produce more butter and better t,ut'-r
in the futarn than we have ev. r dr.t
in the past. We need not expect to be
swamped by nny reat invasion of fur
ei(n butier. Only a curtain iimoun. of
butter it produced in the world and a
certain amount of this is required for
homo use. If all the butter made
should be sunt to the United States
there would be a butter famine in
every country, which would have seri
ous nsfuhi. Hence, I cannot see any
thing Hlrmin-; in the dairy situation

Up to date there have arrived in New
York 1,181,522 pounds of butter; 1179

tion of 0,930 casks and 10,980 boxes.
The caski average 125 lbs. and tho
