Salem, S. D.. Sept.' 1.In a baby show
at Salem today Ruth Conger, a quarter

first colt show ever held in the county
took place today. Eleven colts were en

Phillip Roche and the red to Jacob Hlrt.

MEAT FAMINETLl i
HAND IN CHICAGO
Extension of Strike to Independ
ent Plants Shuts Off Food
XJhicaeo, Sept. 1.Chicago faces the
most serious meat famine in its history.
With the wholesale markets empty, be
fore the end of the week the 2,000,000
population of the city will be on a
Within half an hour after the senous4,
condition of the market became known,
following the calling out of the live
stock handlers at the independent
plants, beef jumped $1.50 per 100
pounds. The wholesalers say that there
will be another jump of $3 a hundred
before the end of the week.
To men of moderate means this price
will be prohibitive, and the thousands
who require meat to sustain their
strength for manual labor will suffer.
It is possible that small quantities of
beef may be shipped in by country
butchers, but they cannot supply
The price of poultry and eggs will ad
vance in sympathy with Deer, and the
enforced increase in the consumption of
vegetables also will send those commo
dities up. The out-of-state packers do
not employ union men and it is a ques
tion if the handlers in Chicago will be
permitted to work on their goods, even
if they do reach the city.
Famine I Near.
The wholesalers see no way to meet
the demands and actual famine condi
tions cannot be avoided in a few hours,
they say. Anticipating a famine the
Fulton and South water street markets
were scenes of .great activity. Sup
plies of beef were sent to the Armour,
Swift and Morris cold storage plant* in
South Water street from Fulton market
in preparation to reap the harvest of
famine prices that will prevail before
the end of the week. These cold stor
age plants have been empty for weeks.
The packers say that the conditions
will be exactly the reverse of what
they have been, and now the small
market men. will have to buy their
beef from them or go without, because
they can no longer get supplies from
the independent men.
All the large restaurants will be able
to store beef for their trade, but not
enough to stand a prolonged siege.
The masses are to be the real suffer
ers. As one merchant put it: "There
is no telling what will happen to the
food supply of Chicago. I is quite on
the boards' that in two days there will
be no meat in the city and none
sight. While this may be a rather
pessimistic way of looking at the situ
ation, it is the only way we can figure
it out. There is absolutely no certain
ty as to Chicago's meat supply."
Two Cities Affected.
The strike order of President Don
nelly with regard to independent pack
ing plants is to apply only to those
plants in Chicago and St. Louis.
"It was President Donnelly's idea,"
said a national officer of the striking
butchers' organizations, "to tie up the
independent plants and bring on a meat
shortage in order to awaken public in
terest in the strike. This was opposed
because it was felt such action would
hurt us most by throwing our own men
out of employment in large numbers.
Confining the order to Chicago and St.-
Louis is not an effort to produce a meat
famine, but is simply a case of co
operation with the striking meat hand
lers. Comparatively few independent
houses will be affected."
"Sto ck handlers," said President
Donnelly, "areon strike only in Chi
cago and St. Louis. I Chicago .only
the independents within the stockyards
enclosure will be of necessity affected.
Union men employed in independent
packinghouses will not be permitted to
*dress cattle handled on the hoof by
non-union men. The fate of the out
side independent packers depends on
their ability to secure stock without
recourse to the stockyards company."
Eepresentatives of the independent
packing companies doing business at
the stockyards had a conference with
the Allied Trades Council and presented
a request that the strike in their
be called off,. The^re
quest was referred to the conference
board of the council.
Board of Trade Snare.
Complications affecting Board of
Trade operations were feared as the re
sult of the strike in the five indepen
dent establishments affected by the or
der. I dealing in tierce lard, mess
pork and ribs, the warehouse receipts,
representing the products, pass from
hand to hand. September options fall
due for delivery today and the inde
pendent packers are without crews to
make deliveries, -where the product is
actually demanded for shipment. If
non-union men are brought in to do the
loading, the butcher workmen, who are
clearing up preparatory to leaving, will
drop their work at once, to the embar
rassment and loss of the packers.
Not a bullock, hog or sheep has been
driven out of the stockyards since the
order to the handlers went into force.
A committee of livestock owners and
commission men waited upon Don
nelly and requested permission to load
cattle now in the yards for shipment

the filing fees received from the eighty

law must be divided evenly among the
counties in his district. The $1,620 re

he had refused to become a member.
Piatt declared he was blacklisted,"
and appealed to the court. The deci

might have the effect of lowering the
price of: drugs by making it easy for the
cut-rate druggists to obtain supplies.
Piatt alleged that he was boycotted
