Consul UodhiK's list was analyzed for
Tub Si n yesterday by .)ohn Jerome
Jtooncy, who has made a study of the
export and Import of meats. He paid
that the prices, which are much lower
than the lowest prevalllnc here, showed
that the packers wen; tnkln advantase
of Him tariff Imposed on meats here to
poize (he luiRo markets In I'niKUuy and
the Argentine and then ship the meat In
Kurope, where It Is sold at a much
lower price than It Is In this country.
We are kept out of the South Amer

bars set up by the tarlfT; and he iirsues
that the hinli cost of llvlnc la due to
11rtlllcl.1l icstrlctlons that are Imposed
on our people.
"I read an Interview from a butcher
who had returned from CJerniany." said
Mr. Itooncy. "In which he said that meat
was hlch all over Germany. That Is be
cause of Germany's hlh tariff, and the
fact that the Agrarian party there has
made a combination with the nianufac
tuiers and pushed through quarantine
restrictions and hlsh tariff laws tbat
put up the price of meat Just as they
"The packers are complaining that
their export trade Is falling off. It Is,
because they are fllllni: up the foreign
markets with meat from fruuuay and
the Argentine the moats that we
ought to be getting here."

Washington', dot. . I'roof that the
cost of living Is rapidly rising even in
undeveloped countries Is furnished in
reports to the State Department by
other L'nlted States Consuls.
Stuart K. Lupton, at Karachi. India,
says that the general cost of living has
Increased at least 50 per cent. In the
last five years. I-'rom Australia John I'.
dray, at Sydney, reports an even larger
Increase In the price of commodities of
common necessity. John W. Thomas,
t Manchester. Knpland, quotes figures
to show food prices alone have Increased
about 1 per cent., while the cost of
coal and other necessities aside from
food has risen much.
Consul hupton states that the house
which he rented three years ago at
Karachi for 130 a month now rents for
$50, even though changes In the char
acter of Its Hurroundlngs made It much
less desirable than when he first occu
pled It. Then, he reports, the monthly
wages of the cook for a family of two
were but J6.4S; now they are 5S.11, ac
cording to nvcrnge. wages paid. Kven
the native foods have Increased In price
by at least GO per cent. In the last five
years. There are compensations, bow
ever, for the better cuts of beef cost
only 1" cents a pound; on the other
hand, bacon and ham cost from "8
cents to 44 cents a pound.
Lester Moynard, nt Harbin, Manchu
ria, reports that an unfurnished single
room, without board, costs H".:Q a
month, while an apartment of six rooms
and hath, without heat or light, costs
on an nverage $B3 a month. Tho better
cuts of beef now bring 20 cents a pound,
fish costs -0 cents a pound, and milk Is
sold for cents a pint.
An Increase of 10 per cent, within the
last year for articles of ordinary diet Is
reported by Consul Hr.iv. at Svilney.
The highest Increase
was In onions,
which are now sellln;
per cent, higher than a year ago,
Consul Thomas says that In Man
chester. Kngland, the pound sterling
that would In IMS purchase H0.S1
pounds weight of food will now buy but
72.S7 pounds of the same articles. Coal,
which cost 2.42'a ton nt the mine In
1898, now costs J.1.22 at tho mine.

PlTTHnuno, Oct. 11. - Agitation against
tho high cost of foodstuffs hau been so
persistent in Pittsburg that the Pitts

of the publication is to give the women of

In tho first Issue tho bulletin says: "So
far iw fruilH and vegetables are concerned,
nil complaintu of the high cost of living
should cease. Not for ten years Inn
"there been such a stupendous crop of the

Topkka, Knn., Oct. 6. The pending
campaign with its discussions of the
cost of living and especially tho high
prices for beef is causing thoughtful and
intelligent people to looli for the remedy
and reat.011 If one can lie found. fSecretury
plAgricuIturo Wilson, after a visit to hit)
hype in Iowa and to other Western Btulcf,
Mill that hn could ae no hop of hoof
getting much chenpor and that, ho found
n much Rre.iter scarcity of cattlo than ho
Secretary Wilson touehes tho vital
point In tho cattlo nuesllon as It relates
to tho Rreat plains region west of (the J
Mississippi diver by showing mat tne
demand for homestead by farmcrn have
forced tim groat ranch owners to cut
up and mII their ranges into small farms,
putting several thousand cattle raisers
1 out of business. In the Staten or Kansas,
j Texas, Obinhomn, Nebraska, tho Dakotns
aid some of the regions of tho mountain
and l'aeific section this is expeclally tme.
Within the past ten yearn the Pan
handle or Texas and Iho cattle growing
region to tho south, a territory as large
as New Kngland and New York, bus been
undergoing the same change which
western Kansas and Nebraska experi
enced twenly-llvo years ago.
Land companies and real estate boomers
Induced the owners of tho great cattlo
ranches to cut them up into quarter
sections and sell them to the farmers of
Iowa, Missouri, Illinois and other middle
Western States who had been Induced to
leave n section favored with equitable
crop conditions for an experiment In the
arid belt, It was the same mistake that
was made by settlers In western Kansas
and tho plains territory to the Canadian
lino a quarter of n century ago, I his
inrush of settlers to Texus, a in other
sections or the plains country, put many
of the big cattle raisers out of business.
Annually the crn.inc lands west of the
Mlssist-lppi diver are being cut up into
Tho cattle industry in the Woat has not
kept pace with the growth of population
and the demand for lieef product. This
is shown in the yearly receipts of cattle
at Chicago, St. I,ouls, Kansas City and
Omaha, representing tho bulk of Western
marketings. In 11 ix'tiod of nine years
the increase of slilpmenls of cattlo to
the markets named is only 132,000 head.
in line tne receipts were i,ni.n ana in
Hill tliev weie 7.437.(100.
In tho twenlv-ono States west of tho
Mississippi diver, embracing approxi
mately two-thirds of the area of the
United States, the great cattle growing
region, there has lieen 11 gradual decline
in the lieef industry. The net decrease in
the number of cattle raised between
June 1. inn-' and June 1. ItBlo. in twentv-
nne States west of the Mississippi River
was .',J(U,' :;. mo total niminer or tut tin
raised in this territory dropped from
4(1,500,017 ill IW2 to 3S.2Ng.004 ill 101(1. The
heaviest decrease in any State was nearly
.LOW"! in Texas. Kansas and Nebraska
show a loss in the cattle business during
that (Htriod or nearlv one million each.
Arkansas with all of the mountain and
l'.iflfie coast States shows a slight gain
over tho figures of 1902.
South Dakota is mentioned in a reent
ht-itement by Live Stock Agent Cutler
of the ortnnestern, who nail just le-
turiieii I nun 11 1 rip 10 that rotate, lie said
that "within i.:- years the transmissouri
legion will Ik p-oducing more leef and
mutton than in the palmy days of the
range live Mock mdustrv." The statistics
do not liear out Mr. Cutler's rosy view of
tho cattle industry of the itpjier Missouri
Hiver country. I tho period above lumed
the total incrensiof cattle in South Da
kota was l,20.'i. ai.d North Dakota showed
an increase or only 7,747.
Another reason Tor the heavy decrease
in rattle shipments this year is tho fact
that ranchmen and small cattle growers
rushed many thousand head to the mar
kets last winter and early fall localise of
tho shortage of food. The great bulk of
these cattle were feeders and would liave
lieen listed as prime Iw-cf cattle in the
markets now if the farmers and ranch
men could have secured feed to put them
through last winter
The iHHiple of the Knst have never
realized the extent or the drought or last
year, covering it strip or country son
miles wide and stretching from the Gulf
or Mexico to Canada. This territory em
braces tho great cattle growing section
or the United States. Forage crops gen
erally failed and the ranges were burned
by the long siege of dry weather. Fol
lowing this was the mo"t severe winter
ever experienced in the West. Thou
sands of head of cattle either starved
or were frozen to death A snow aver
aging fifteen inches in depth covered
all this region Tor six weeks. The small
farmers who had hoped to get their catt e
tlirough on the range and who were un
able to buy feed for them were the hea vi
The past winter was the hardest blow
ever felt by cattlo raisers in the West
and many grew discouraged and decided
to try general farming. When tho figures
aie available it will he seen that the fall
ing off of the cattle industry during tho
past year in the territory under dis
cussion will be heavier than that of the
five preceding years. This is due to I lie
gradual decline in the beef cattle busi
ness cause by the divisions into small
farms of many of tho big ranches and
to the failure of forage crops and short
ranges last year.
