AS TO THE PURE FOOD LAW
DR. MORSMAN TELLS OF ITS
USES AND ABUSES.
"States Rights" Theory Crops Out
in Pure Food Laws One
National Law Preferable
The druggist comes under the act
ion ot the pure food laws just us does
the grocer. The dispensing physician
conn s legally under the law. hut thus
far lie lias been exempt from Inspec
tion. It is likely to In' some time be
fore the Nebraska law is enforced
against the physician. The druggist
is compelled to buy only of reputable
concerns, brands and grades that the
inspector will accept or else his
goods will be sampled and examined
with possible penalties.
This law is of great benefit to the
publli, but like most new laws there
are defects in it and In some ways
it works "i decided In just lie to the
dealer. Probably time will remedy
Ihes" defects, and the law will he a
benefielent one. Ii has already done
It would be much better iu every
way it we could have one national law
applicable to the entire country, and
no stale laws, but we havn'l outgrown
the states rights” theory yet, and
the government law can be applied on
ly to Interstate business. The Nebras
ka law Is node led utter the National
law, ImiI it cannot enforce a penalty
outside the state, and so penalizes tli >
seller of goods inside the state who
may be entirely Innocent. In a state
like Nebraska ,i very large portion of
its manufactured goods, foods and
drugs, are made or put up outside of
the state and adulteration and mis
branding is more apt to be done by
the manufacturers. Now In the matter
of drugs.it is absolutely Impossible for
the dealer to know certainly that ev
ery article he buys Is of standard
quality. That can only be determined
be expensive assays or chemical analy
sis. The goods may lie guaranteed to
him, but the guarantee under the Na
tional law applies only to the original
package, unbroken. The moment ti"
bren ts the package to sell from It
or to put it in his shelf bottles the
guarantee is only just as good as the
guarantor chooses to make it, or at
I its! the retailer would have to prove
that the goods were the original ones
untampered with. In most cases that
would be « x, I't'ditigly difficult. Many
persons think that goods bearing the
guarantee statement are guaranteed
by th> go .'eminent. Not at all. The
guarantei is to the government. The
mane fa Hirer guarantees, under n
i’l'ov ion of tin* law. that he will
e • t'e- law in regard to his prnd
> '• • T 'nverumont can bring net
tea a h Irnt if in* does not fulfill
b - e > ant* < . bi t "cat 'lting coiucs
bol'c: hanging,” as the old saying
The slate law should be so worded
that wiiore the Infraction was made
befo>. the goods entered the state,
the case could be turned over to the
government for prosecution ami no
action taken against the denier In
the state if he was innocent of wrong
intent. The action of ttit* law is
the same as against a dealer tn con
traband goods, but in this case the
dealer may not know that his goods
are wrong, while all dealers in con
traband goods could and did know
they were wrong. The Nebraska law
if rigidly applied AS IT IS WORDED
would punish an Innocent citizen foi
a wrong committed by an outsider.
To the consumer this law cannot
help but be beneficial ami it has
alreat\y been so. Manufacturers and
deai rs have all been made more
careful. It has not tended to make
anything cheaper. On the contrary
the trend has been to make good
goods higher priced, because ii has
removed the competition of low
There has been much exagerated
talk about the prevalence of adultera
tion and sensational stories have
been told of how the public has
been duped and swindled. In most
cases of this kind the public got what
it paid for, but didn’t get what it
bought. There was no time when
those who wanted high grade goods
couldn’t obtain them, If they paid
the price. It was the constant de
man^ for cheap goods, that was the
animus of adulteration. The consum
<t put the pressure upon the.retail
er, nini the retailer put it upon the
jobber, and the jobber put it upon the
manufacturer, and the result was the
consumer was hocus-pocused as to
name or fcrade, but not as to price.
Take olive oil,as an illustration. Vir
gin French oil could always be ob
tained at the price, but half of the
oil sold with tills label was not olive
oil at all. It was cotton seed oil,
shipped from tills country to France,
there refined and returned to this
country with a French label. The
consumer wanted a big bottle for
fifty cents, uiul the retailer bought
the kind Ids customers wanted. Most
retailers didn't know what they were
buying. Why did the mail order
houses do such a flourishing busi
ness in groceries before the passage
of the law. Because the people
wanted cheaper stuff than the regu
lar trade had the nerve to supply.
Why did those mail order tricksters
go out of the grocery business when
the law was passed? Because they
couldn't make the prices tempting any
longer. They couldn’t sell against
the regular trade and sell pure goods.
Doubtless they would have evaded
the law if they dared, but they did
n't dure, so they quit.
Doubtless there were some manu
facturers and dealers whose cupidity
was a sufficient excuse for adultera
tion and falsifying, but In the main,
It was demand that cgused the sup
ply. The average business man
would rather make and sell good
1 tie Nebraska law has not been
very thoroughly enforced, because
of Jack of funds for carrying on the
work, and there are plenty of in
terior goods on tin* market yet. The
commissioner has done as well as
could be expected anti much good
lias been accomplished. It will take
time to make the law efficient to its
full extent, and tin* ignorance of
dealers is a greater difficulty to
overcome than their cupidity. The
pure food law only demands purity
It has little to do with quality. That
statement sounds strange, but it Is
not synonymous terms. You can
true. Purity and quantity are
not get quality without purity, but
purity does not necessitate quality.
Perfectly pure cinnamon hark may
lie nearly tasteless and tin* same is
true of all drugs of vegetable origin.
You can get “pure” olive oil that is
Infinitely worse* Uian the* cottonseed
oil you used to buy. It can't he*
lab led "Virgin” or “Best" but it can
he labeled "Pure.”
So after nil the* customer must de
pend upon his druggist. lie can
only select a competent man, an hon
est man and give* him his confidence,
if he wants results lit* must not be
lured by cheap prices, if he buys
a cheap tiling In* will get it just
as he did in the past.
