made a moat vtrorous defense of the
Reinsen board today on the floor of the
house. The speech wss In wr to one

Wiley to the sales.
While Mr. Sloan avoided any crltklsm
of Dr. Wiley he took, the opponunlty to
pay a (towlnc tribute to hrererary Wilton
and declared that the nems.'n referee
Urd waa legally constituted and that
It waa a desirable and necessary body in
the administration of pure fond law.
Reft-iTins to the aloes' statement that
aany feared the derisions of the chem
istry bureau, Mr. Sloan stated that they
' ware feared by farmers Inlured by the
adverse sleschlnf decree of the chemists.
"The farmers." as declared, "do not
appreciate belns charncd as donestera:
having prepared (round and sown seed,
risked the winter's frecse. the chinch
buss' attack, the ranters of the heaslan
fly, the druulli and the flood and un
favorable harvest Mine, rata taking lis
toll. They resent being requlrtd to pay
'tribute te a board of chemistry."
He said further In part:
;The gentleman from Indiana says the
otily class which fear the pure food law
Is the. crooks. Yet they do fear the
Bureau ef Chemistry and It dominance

"Tne.ta en Italic w have held shows,
that one dement In the Bureau of Chem
istry Insisted that tt should be active In
keeping harmful substances out uf drag,
medicines, food preparations, and the
like. The Dther element Insisted that It
energies should be devoted to larger and
mere debatable question of food purity
In the net of benaoate of soda, autphar
dioxide, flour bleaching, eta The secre
tary of agriculture favored the former
and submitted 'certain great question to

that the house, desiring to treat fairly
