"Not In regard to this country. They had

Forty cents a hundred pounds, was the
penalty assessed against members of the
old packers' pool who overshlpped their
allotment into any particular territory,
and the amount wrh distributed among
the members discriminated against. The
?mounts were paid by check every week
immediately after the *aeatioga at which
the packers reviewed the shipments of the
pr? ep/j?n?; ?Keek.
This Information regarding the in?i?le
working* of the pool in tin? perio?! l?e

Yerder.
"What name was tlie eombinatlon

"I never heard any name used."
"What ?lid you ?all these fines ???
sesoed against members because of over
shipping .''
"I referred to them as collections and
payments."
other ?juestions and the replies of Mr.
Veeder were:
"Would it be possible for a member n*
i he combination to suspend operations in
tli- shipment of beef into a certain terri?
tory one week and receive his part of the
fines assessed for overshipments?" asked
Mi. Butler.
"Yes. "
"Was that ever done?"
"Tea, I guess it was "
"Tho same general rule applied to all the
territories its which the 'combine' did busl
??Tea."
"What use was made of the margin
sheets?" '
"It showed the profit made in en,h par
tlCUlai maiket."
"Will you phase illustrate?"
"Well, take Albany. N. T., as an exam?
ple. If ?he margin reports showed a loss in
that mark?? it Indicate?! that territory was
flooded, if the margina showed a profit, it
showed the supply -was satisfactory.'1
"What action was taken by Hie pool to
remedy the situation?"
, "The supply to the different markets w,^
regulated at the weekly meetings so as to
tlsfactory r< suits."

Mr. YecdT testMed that no meetings of

"At the suggestion of K. 1 Martin, of
Armour _ Co.. a 'statistical bureau' was
organised, to which weekly reports of the

Wi re transmitted by mall. The same pa? k
ers were in the new plan as In the old

"What was the reason for the ahsndon

"The S-bwarzsehlld ? Bulsbevger peo?
