Judge Snyder's Decision on Milk
Question May Shut Small Men Out
Since Judge Snyder haa knocked out the
license provision of the pure milk ordi
nance, the city authorities are determined
rigidly to enforce the other provisions Im
mediately after the first of the year.
Dr. C. H. Bower, city health officer,
made the following official announcement
"On and after January 1 no one can sell
milk in the city of Council Bluffs unlets
his cows have been tested for tuberculosis
and his dairy ls In a sanitary condition.
No retail dealer will be allowed to r.ell
milk from bulk unless he satisfies the
health department that he receives his sup
ply of milk from tuberculin-tested eows.
Dairymen with non-tested herds pan only
sell milk to creameries, where It will be
pasteurized and sold as pasteurized milk.
Creameries will be allowed to sell only
pasteurized milk and cream In the original
packages, and they will not be permitted
to sell in the bulk unless they satisfy the
Board of Health that the milk comes from
tuberculin-tested cows. Certified milk will
not be allowed to be sold In this city, ex
cept where it has been certified by the
Board of Health. Under no circumstances
will a milkman or dealer be allowed to
certify his own milk."
Dr. Bower Bald it should be understood
that the ordinance applies to everyone sell
ing milk In Council Bluffs. A person who
sells but one-half pint a day to his neigh
bor Is as liable to prosecution for failure
to comply with the provisions of the meas
ure as the large dealer with a herd of K)
J. J. Stewart, attorney for the Dairy
men's association, said yesterday that
Judge Snyder's decision was exactly as he
had expected. He said by that decision
the dairymen had secured all they desired
and that they did not Intend to resist the
other provisions of the ordinance. He ex
pressed the opinion that the enforcement
of the 'ordinance would result in driving
the small dealer out of business and put
the sale of milk in the hands of the big

of organising corporations for the purpose
of avoiding the penalties or Illegal acts,
the courts have reached a different con
clusion." ' '
