Omaha, Oct, 13. Market statistics taken
on October 10 show that within a year the
packinghouses have raised the price of
pork 15 per cent. The trust is paying 40
per cent less for pork than'it did a year
ago and getting sufficiently better prices to
make 50 per cent larger profits. The same
is practically true of beef, the increase in
promts being 35 per cent. During the
week ended Saturday live pork dropped $1
a hundred and the same day there was a
raise of i cent a pound on .the dressed
product, ft is now costing Omaha, fami
lies alone $180,000 more for meat than it
did last year, before the trust got under
way, and Nebraska stockmen, according to
the estimate of careful statisticans, havo
lost 874,000,000 this year through the
manipulations of the trust.

stock growers to build and operate their
