The sales committee of the new England milk producers association stood firmly against the de mands of the dealers and saved the Farmers from a heavy loss on Decem ber milk. The sales committee took the position that while there was an obvious downward trend in Many lines the time had not come to reduce the milk Price As the costs of production were not materially lower than last made by the statistical department of the association showed that while Grain has gone Down materially at wholesale in the West the reduction has not reached the country retail Trade in new England to any extent. The average reduction in Grain prices in the country amounts to about $5 per ton. Taking into consideration All production costs the reduction for the month amounted to about one tenth of a cent per dealers asked for a reduction of a half cent. Before deciding to stand firmer carrying out the two months contract the sales committee of the association Laid their figures before the Massachusetts commission on the necessaries of life and received the Assurance of the commission that it would take no action to disturb existing conditions. The Only Concession made to the dealers was that Farmers should stand loss on surplus during the contract entered into nov. 1 for the two months the surplus deductions which were to be charged Back to the Farmers could not exceed one half cent a quart. November milk will be paid for on this basis but under the Concession made by the Sale committee the Farmers will accept surplus deduction in full just As the did in months previous to officers from st. Johnsbury visited the farm House Baird at Danville sunday afternoon with a search warrant and found four bottles of Canadian High wine and brought it to the county jail at st. Johnsbury.
