"The consumer doesn't care a snap of his fingers about the dissolution of a trust unless it means lower
prices or better quality, or both," says the New York Globe, which sees "no reason to believe that the
withdrawal of the packers from all lines except meat and dairy products will benefit the consumer
an iota." On the other hand, Attorney General Palmer telegraphs THE LITERARY DIGEST that
"The practical benefits to the public will come from opening up the channels of trade in food lines
to competing producers and distributers of food freed from the menace of the all-powerful packers
organization." The packers themselves, however, are not so confident about the effect on prices. In
answer to the "Digest's" interrogation on this point Mr. J. Ogden Armour telegraphs that "it is im
possible to forecast the probable effect the dissolution will have upon the high cost of living." Messrs.
Louis F. Swift, Thomas E. Wilson, ,E. A. Cudahy, and Edward Morris practically agree with him in
There is scarcely any other subject that so vitally concerns the public as that covered by the leading
article in THE LITERARY DIGEST for January 3rd. The "Digest" has secured statements from the
highest sources representative of every angle of opinion upon the recent decision of the packers to
withdraw from all lines except meat and dairy products.
Other articles of great interest in this number of the "Digest" are:
