The offense in question was admit- ted by the defense, bill Ibeir attor- neys contended -during the trial of mor'e than that the. state law was unreasonable and unjust and presented .numerous witnesses to Justify their contention. Their reason for declaring the law was unjust was thai it makes impos- sible the manufacture of No. 1 and fancy Swiss cheese, to produce which, standardization is essential and that Hie law is discriminatory because cheese of foreign production, the product of standardized milk, is allowed to compete with the manu- facturers' product on the market in this state. The law upon which Hie complain! of the State Dairy commission was based provides that when standardi- zation is practiced the cheese must he nine inches thick with a diameter of 10 inches. The object of .the .standardization of the dimensions, it is said, is to apprise purchasers of the fact that milk used in tlie manu- facture of the cheese had been re- duced in butterfat. Expert Trstlintiny The defense introduced expert tes- timony to prove that It is impossible to manufacture Swiss cheese of a good quality in cakes of the pre- scribed size and that it is impossible to manufacture Swiss cheese of the better quality unless the butterfat contents of the milk used, Is reduced to conform to a certain ratio of fat and caslen. Attorneys for the defense were E. B. Snyder, Chicago; Judge J. N. Decker, Monroe, and Charles Avery and 1. A. White of Antigo. The prosecution attorneys were: Earl J Plantz, district attorney of Langlade CITY TREASURY OF ASK FOR NEW PUBLIC S Candidate county, and J. E. Mcssershcmidt of Madison..
