PORT WINE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 2 April 1890
PORT WINE. Portugal Outline Oft' John Itull's Sopply of Tint. Luxury. Ridiculous as it may seem, the anger of the Portuguese against England for Lord Salisbury's bullying course, may, after all, make itself felt in what is to England a tenderer spot than any sore corn, It may, we mean, provided the furious outburst of anger against England only lasts and dees not quickly burn itself out. For the present the pot continues to boil. Tho furious Portuguese, having tired themselves out with the folly of • parading in processions and yelling "Down with England!" have since been organizing a big boycott, in the shape of a commercial crusade against England. They not only stop all trade with that country, cutting off even the port wine on which rubicund John Bull so largely depends, but are establishing a line of steamships, under the Spanish flag, to inn between Lisbon and Brazil.

Ii Our Olive Oil (_r.,wluc l'urer? Cotton-seed oil continues to be an export from this country to Italy, and, as Consul Hathaway naively states it: "That the adulteration of the olive oil, notwithstanding the severe penalties of law therefore, is to i some extent practiced, is undoubted. The fraud is accomplished by mixing with the genuine tl.i-J oil of the oleaginous s leds of cotton, sesamum and others. Immediate discovery of the imposition appears impossible, although much study has been given the matter." (Consul Hathaway hud not probably heard at the time he wrote— Becchi's test, which was for this . very pun ose, and which has been pronounced reliable by Professor Wiley and other distinguished chemists.) lt is suggestive of possibilities in this connection to note that while Italy furnished this country 542,145 gollons of olive oil in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 1 589, yet during the same period we supplied her with 86,260 gallons of cotton-seed oil, or somewhat more t...
