CONCERNING THE
BRANDING OP BUTTER
To the Editor: In explanation of the
causes which ld to tho recent ruling
from this office on the branding of the
country J5uter, I will say that it is not
the purpose of this office to work hard
ships upon small dairymen, but on tho
contrary it is largely for their protoc
tion that the ruling was made.
Country butter is often bad, yet it is
far from tho truth to say that it is
all bad, but evory roll of good country
butter, if unbranded, has forced upon
it all the odium that is pluced upon
tho bad butter frequently found in
country stores. .
The brand demanded by this ruling
identifies the good as well as tho bad
and each receives his just reward from
the commercial world as soon as his
brand ar name becomes thoroughly iden
tified with the particular quality of
the article. Besides this, tho neatness
of the lnble and package has a com
inercinl value that far more than ro-
imburses the fanner for the extra cost
of tho printing.
How would a dealer diaposo of a
case of creamery butter if it came to
him in wrappers?. It is not unlikely
that the loss from the sales of a single
case because of the imprinted wrappers
would pay for the printing of a thous
ami wrappers.
Probably the greatest benefit to bo
dorived from tho proper branding is
the fact thnt tho quality of the butter
. will improve, hence the consumer will
be willing to pay a bottor price. When
the maker's name follows the butter
to the ronsumor, greater precaution
will be taken to sue that the quality is
good. For instance, eggs that are
stamped and guaranteed or money re
funded" are very seldom found bad,
while it is unnecessary to state that if
the guarantee or name of the farmer
is not required, tho same care will not
be excercised In marketing s good fresh
Neatly printed butter wrapper! are
being supplied by the dairy supply
bouses for one-fourth cents each if or
dered in lots of 500 or 1000.
This is less than the farmer often
pays for tho paper alone when bought
in small lots. This, together with the
copy of which is enclosed, I think jus
tifies me in not only mnking the ruling
but enforcing it.

Council, City of Salem, Oregon.
"Gentlemen:
"We, tho undersigned property own

The Statesman's Statement,
A yellow reporter has his wires cross
ed in regard to tho proposod improve
ment of South High stroot. What tho
thirteen property holdorB on that street
who petitioned tho city council on Mon
day evening woro trying to do was to
keep the paving matter for that stroot
alivo, tho understanding being that it
was about to go off the boards on a
remonstrance Those thirtoon petition
ers voted for various kinds of paving.
They did not act in concert aa to tho
kind of paving to be selected. They
will be satisfied with any of tho differ
ent kinds for which bids woro submit
ted. What they want is some kind, and
this year. Mr. Hendricks, whoso name
was singled out by the roportor with a
yellow streak, did not petition for the
Ambroso-Burdsall kind. But he has
seen that kind as laid at C'ottago Grove,
and thinks it makes a good street. He
would be vory glad to have South High
street paved under the Ambrose Jlnrd
sall bid. It would mako a stroot, ho
thinks, that would be a crodit to the
city and Bntisfoctory to tho property
holders out that way.
Ambroso-Burdsull pavement) has the
necessary strength and lasting qualities
to moot our needs," then as the peti
tion above shows, recommondud somo
other kind.
Now, this matter is of littlo interest
to tho Capital Journal, as it owns no
property on South High street and is of
interest to it only because it wauls to
seo every property ( wner, whothor on
South llih or elsewhere, havo an abso
lutely square deal, and this applies to
Mr. Hendricks and tho twelvo with him
just as much as to others. But it docs
lruuse mo i iipiiui journal s curiosity.
Dither Mr. Hendricks was trying to do
ceive the council when he signed that
petition, or he is trying to deceive the
people as to his course.' Ho is surely
trying to deceive somebody, or else he
tins developed a struin of Idiocy and
inn no longer understand the English
language, anil cannot realize the in eon
ing of his own nets, Believing R. J,
would not do anything either wrong or
foolish intentionally, the latter is Mr
haps the more charitable view. In the
meanwhile, we would suggest that he
send some of his reporters down to tho
apltal Journal office, and expose them
to "yellow journalism." They might
catch it. If they did, he could then
anchor the city editor in the Journal
editorial rooms of nights and seo if it
would "tako" on him.

Sacramento, Cal., May 14. "It Is
with the highest respect for yourself
and the president that I feel my duty
to my state compels me to approve the
action of the legislature."
This is the roply of Governor Hiram
W. Johnson to the plea of the national
administration to dolay action on the
anti-alion land law, as it set forth in
a lengthy tolegram sent to Secretary of
State Bryan today.
The sotatment follows:
"We of California believe firmly
that in our legislative dealings with
this alien land question we have vio
lated absolutely no troaty rights; we
have shown no shadow of discrimina
tion; we have given to no nation the
right to be justified In taking offense.
So bolleving with a strong reliance
on the justice and righteousness of our

courtesy, and with proper considera
tion for the feelings and the views of
othors wo had hoped the authorities
at Washington would have seen the
quostion as we in this state have been
forced to see it as we must see it or
be blind.
No Choice Left Him.
''And so, with all respect and cour
tesy, the stats of California; fools it its
bouuden duty to its citizens to do what
the interests of Its people demand;
that which the conscience of its people
approves; that which violates no trea
ty rights; that which presonts no dis

no just cause for offense,

sented. Our poople as represented in
the legislature have overwhelmingly
expressed tholr desire for the pres
ent alien land hill. The vote In the
senate was 35 to 2, and In the assem
bly 73 to 3. With such unanimity of
opinion, even did I hold othor views, I
would foel it my plain duty to sign the

necessity demanded contrary action.
Apparently no such controlling neces
sity exists.
