said Speaker Coming as I do from a state that owns from to worth of nearly double as much as any other state in this I naturally feel much Interest in the pend ing question before the We have heard at very great length from several especially from my friend from Mississippi a de scription of what constitutes hogs a description that naturally brought to the mind of the gentteman from Penn sylvania Brosius the lines from Macbeth descriptive of the witches cal It is horrible they tell my why imitate It Why insist on branding ai lard a pun and delicate article which passes for olive oil why brand it with the name of something so foul as the villainous stuff that you have described here If cotton seed oil is such a pure and de licious why raise over it the ban In hoy sujno Vincent Let it sail under its own and if it is a good article it will work its way in the markets of the there is a demand all over this country for pure This bill is the second step in that The gentleman from Missouri Hatch has been complimented highly for the first the measure which he brought forward to put down oleomarga or to compel as it s familiarly to go upon the market under its own to be sold as oleo margarine and not as pure Orange county That was one step and now it is to be followed by and I hope that we shall take step after step in this same direction until this country shall cease to be dis gracefully held up all over the world as the home of adulter ated We will add another com mandment to the Thou Shalt not commit and we will enforce it by federal Laughter and applause on the republican Almost everything that we eat or drink is so adulterated that only a chemist can trace the original Fortunately for the human race most of these admix tures are not injurious to Usual ly some but not com pound is added to every article of food until no man knows what he is eating or what he is unless he has pro duced the article But the par ties engaged in such frauds are not too conscientious to use materials of the most deleterious where such materials will answer the and can be purchased more cheaply than more wholesome From Iowa no uncertain voice has been heard upon this From every part of the and from all classes has been heard a demand for the passage of a bill to protect the great hog staples from the depreciation caused by We have just passed a meat inspection so that the hog products which go to Europe may have the seal of honest inspection to assure all consumers that the meat products of this country are pure and When Bismarck got into the trough himself and crowded the American hog out of the German he did it under the pretext that our bacon was The meat inspection law will deprive the German government of this false ground for exclusion of our And when the fraudulent producers of bogus lard seek to crowd the genuine hog products from the American mar kets they commence with the assumption that the genuine article is an unwhole some and unhealthy To allow a spurious compound to enter into a disguised competition with our great agricultural staple is to permit the lirst step to be taken to destroy that The question of furnishing honest lard for all markets is one that ought to in terest all One great industry should not be in to undermine and destroy If cot ton is king by divine it should not attempt to rule under the disguise of in the state of Missis from which we have so much op position to this the annual hog prod uct amounts to about The hogs there are built for speed as some of my soldier friends here who were upon the confederate side and also some upon the federal side well There is no lard in them so that the people are compelled to go out to the cotton field for their and it is very natural that gentlemen from that part of the country should rise here in defense of the cotton seed oil product rather than the pure juice of the It is quite natural they should take that course but let the article be sold under its own The razorbacks which roam the cane brakes of northwestern Mississippi do not take to fat but it does not follow that the cottonseed oil of the the Yallabusha and the Yazoo should be sold as the ciieinal hog products of Nebraska and The gentleman from Illinois Mason told us today that at one time the makers of this refined lard were tndudcd to change the name and call it compound or lard They were gilding rclined painting the This elegant com pound that has been described by my friend from they called re fined They put the refined sub stance of cottouseed oil into but still they called it yet nothing in the name or label indicated that there was anything in it but the product of the The gentleman from Illinois stated that Fairbank voluntarily changed his trademark and calledhis product com pound lard or lard compound but my friend substantially conceded away all the merit of the claim that he made from Fairbank when he said that that change was the result of an investigation in congress that the opponents of this product and this Fair met before the agricultural com mittee of the and that finally Fairbank agreed to change his brand to compound the gentleman ex plain the object of the tax object is this We cannot reach this product in any other There is a constitutional question and the gentlemen who are en deavoring to force compound lard down the throats of the American people un der the name of refined lard or pure lard1 can not be reached by federal legislation except in tint The same difficulty arose in the case of oleo State
