BLAMES HIGH MEAT COST ON
Cut tins Off Grain Refuse from Bre
weries Forres Cattle Raiser to
Pasture Sotck, Says Expert
Predicts Famine Condition to Come
Packers Accused of Storing Hogs
to Raise, Prices.
'Prohibition is held responsible by
some dealers for the newest wave of
hit;h prices of meats. They maintain
that closing down sidtilleries has
caused the prices of beef to soar
above the figures of Civil War days.
Cattlemen have always found it
profitable to feed stock on the refuse
of grain and corn furnished by dis
tilleries and breweries. W'lQi the
closinp of distilleries in the prohibi
tion States, this source of food has
failed the cattle raisers. Grain is too
expensive to. feed because the farmer
can pet more for the grain in the
market than he can , realize in the
slieht increase in the value of grain
Figures show that a steer weighing
GOO pounds will weigh 900 pounds
when ready for the market if fed on
grain refuse whereas a steer of the
same weight left to pasture will not
weigh more than 700 or 725 pounds.
PREDICTS HIGHER PRICES.
This explanation of the beef situa
tion was advanced yesterday by Pat
rick Quinn Foy, publisher of the Daily
Market Report, and an expert on
market prices. He added:
"With the closing of the whiskey
distilleries on September 8th, the sit
uation will become still worse, and
prices will reach figures heretofore
never dreamed of."
Dressed beef has gone up 2 cents
a pound since Wednesday and 4 cents
a pound since July Hi. Although all
meats are from G to 10 cents a pound
higher now than at this time a year
ago, market men predict that prices
will go still higher before the middle
of September. They assert that hind
quarters of beef will bring 26 cents
a pound wholesale. The retailers add
that htis means that sirloin steaks will
cost the housewife Go cents a pound
with porterhouse, chuck and round
steaks advancing at proportionate fig
ures. The only possible relief, say whole
salers, is in h reduction of grain
prlees--ielicf that Herbert C. Hoover,
national food director, alone can bring.
niGES GOVERNMENT OCTION.
Hops also continue to soar, selling
yesterday at ?1S GO a hundred pounds,
with several shipments at $18.75.
This is nearly a dollar above the pre
vious high record for the year. Tat
.rick Kyii'. manager of Murray's Ros-
J "The explanation of the rise in beef
prices is simple, but I see no reason
for the advance in hog prices. The
war, the heavy exports to the allies,
and the cessation of the Argentine
beef shipment to the United States,
to my mind, account fo rthe advance
in beef prices.
"Wih hogs, the situation is differ
ent. I believe that hogs, which are
easily raised, are as plentiful as ever,
and are being s'ored by the packers in
the Middle West. We must come
speedilv to government control."
Charles Grismer, of Brooklyn,
president of the United Master
Butchers' Association of America, as
cribes the situation to the war. He
declared yesterday jthaf retail butch
ers were absolutely free from blame,
and cited numerous recent failures as
proof that high prices were forcing
retailers out of business. Mr. Gris
"Now that the whole animal ill
dressed state sells for 20 cents a
pound, the retailer must get 40 cents
a pound for roasts In order, to break
even. He should charge more.. The
small man Is at a further disad
vantage because the people m hot
weather will not buy soup and stew
meat, and corn beef, which requires
cooking for hours over a hot fire. To
move this meat at all. the retailer
must often sell at a loss."
Poultry should be cheaper, accord
ing to Mr. Foy. He said: "There are
48,000,01)0 pounds of poultry in stor
age, as compared with 7,000,000
pounds last year," The retailers, he
asserted, were boosting poultry prices
to cover losses on meats. New York
