A TIP FOR US
Washington, Aug. 20. A very in
teresting dispatch has been received
by the Department of Commerce
from Sidney, Australia, where our
consul states that a plan is bemg pre
pared by which the government of
New South Wales intends to reduce
the price of meat by slaughtering in
gojternment abattoirs and supplying
meat to retail butchers, thus elimin
ating middlemen. In view of the
failure of our own government in its
efforts to curb the beef trust, and in
view of the fact that meat prices con
tinue to rise, the experience of for
eign governments must be instructive.
