G There never was, nor can there ever be, a more deliberate, outrageous swindle than this bogus butter business. The whole scheme was conceived in iniquity, is nurtured by conlmercial moonsliners, and carried into execution by desperate men who are careful to appeal to that protection which our laws wisely throw about those charged with crime, in order that the innocent may not unjustly suffer, while they are deliberately, persistently, and willfully violating the law and profiting by the perpetration of a base fraud upon the people. These words were used by State Dairy Commissioner Brown, of New York, and none could have been chosen to express more succinctly and more pointedly the opinion entertained by all honest citizens on the dishonest traffic in oleomargarine and other imitation butter by unscrupulous men who throw honesty to tne winds and glory in the wealth obtained through fraud, deceit,. and misrepresentation. .This little book is designed ts set before the people the enormity of this abominable traflic the laws that have been passed or are in contemplation for its prohibition or regulation the decisions of the courts of law the movements that have been set on foot against it in the various States of the Union the injury that is being done to one of our most important agricultural interests and such other facts as may fully open the eyes of the public to the importance of procuring legislation for the protection of honest dairymen, dealers in dairy products, and above all, of the consumers.

Inasmuch as the fight against this gigantic swindle is only now assuming national importance, it is hoped that this book may be of service to those who are interested in procuring legislation for the protection not only of their own interests but of the public health. The manufacture of this imitation butter and its sales to consumers are increasing daily except in the State of New York, where the strict enforcement of the law has brought about a reduction of about fifty per cent. in the number of violations, and the manufacturers, grown arrogant with their ill gotten wealth, now demand that the product of their factories shall be declared a legitimate article of human food...
