(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, July !1 (Special. )-Th
Iowa pur food law and the Mocha-Java
coffee buslners ar st cross purposes and
there seems to be little chance of harmony
being secured. The pure food law requires
that if an article of food Is not exactly
what It Is claimed to be It must bo labeled
explaining what it I. If a food is adulter
ated or is a mixture, compound, combina
tion, Imitation or blend it must bear a
label saying: "This is composed of
the following Ingredients and none other,"
naming all the Ingredients, preservative
and coloring matter as well. If it is not
adulterated there 1 no need of a label of
In th manufacture of coffee th height
of the art Is to secure a blend of two or
more growths of coffee. It Is claimed that
there Is no Mocha-Java coffee on the mar
ket The pure, coffee of the Mocha-Java
kind 1s so strong that It cannot be used
alone, and the art In Its manufacture comes
In properly blending It with milder varie
ties. Under the new pure food law the
mixture is deemed an adulteration and
must be so labeled, showing the Ingredi
ents. Coffee men are claiming that this
will kill the coffee business and they fear
that the Mocha-Java brands will decline
In popularity. If the pure Mocha-Java Is
put on the market people can't drink It
and If the blend Is put on the market a
label must be attached telling this fart
and this will. It Is feared, caure the puhjtc
to look askance at the article. A coffee
house traveling man exhibited his wares to
State Food and Dairy Commissioner H. R.
Wright In order to gain some information
on the new law and when he discovered
this fact he asserted that the Mocha-Java
coffee business would be ruined by the
mall Railroads Object.
The executive council Saturday completed
the assessment of the telephone lines in
the state, of which there are several nun
dred. The council has as yet only touched
on the railroad assessment, which will be
taken up Monday and probably completed
by the close of next week. The smalt rail
roads of the state, which have ever claimed
that they were assessed higher In propor
tion than the larger roads, are this year
making an effort to get the council to scale
them down and add. If any addition Is to be
made, to the bigger roads. This claim of
the small roads that they are over-assrssed
Is baaed on the fact that the per cent the
assessment bears to the gross earnings is
much larger than that of the big lines.
For Instance, the Muscatine North and
South line Is assessed at 117 per cent of
Its gross earnings according to the assess
ment of last year., .The Manchester A
Oneida at 130 per cent, the Tabor & North
ern at 151, Davenport, Rock Island & North
western st 675. the'Alhla & Centervllle at
842, Minneapolis & St. Louis at 124, and so
on. The big lines) on the other hand, are
all assessed at less-than 100 per cent of
their gross earnings. " The Rock Island at
86. the Iowa CentrnLat 9, the Northwest
ern 89, the "Milwaukee 89, Great Western
80. Burlington 9t. .The ' law requires that
the executive council shall take Into con
sideration all phases of the question snd
shall not assess the. railroads on any one
basis,' such as gross earnings, value of
stocks and bond on the market cost of
building, etc. The council has therefore
continually argued to the small roads that
It is forced to consider other things than
gross earnings, but this has been only a
mild salve to their claims of high assessments.

' May Oppose Towner.
There is some possibility that opposition
may develops against Judge H. M. Towner
of Corning as temporary chairman of the
republican state convention which meets
here August 1. Judge Towner has been
selected by the state central committee
In accordance with time honored custom
of the party In this state for the central
committee to make such a selection of the
temporary officers. The heated camralgn
that Is drawing to a close is probably re
sponsible for the opposition to Judge
Towner. Among the Cummins men there
Is some talk now of opposing Towner, with
ex-Oovernor Larrabee as the temporary
chairman. It Is quite possible that the
talk will result In no definite action.
