A cloudy sky and -wind greeted the

hopefully at the sky and said he would
not mind a little storm, for then he
could rest. Nevertheless he Is prepar

weather permits this. It would neces

out to the harbor of San Pedro, over
the fortifications there and returned.
He passed over the big guns on
Palos Verde hills, a height, of 900 feet,
and when it was realized that he could
have thrown three or four hundred
pounds of explosives down among

with the pleasure of the spectators.

TAKES BAP AT
El Paso, Tex., Jan. 15, 1910.
Editor El Paso Herald:
I notice in your yesterday's paper that
you gave the El Paso meatk famine a
conspicuous place on your first page. I
think it needs a place there if any
where. There is no question about a
scarcity of good beef now.
Meat is always scarce when prices be
gin to advance. I say there is ah alarm
ing scarcity of good butcher 6tuff, al
though I do not anticipate a meat fam
ine. I believe El Paso will have suf
ficient meats to Sake care of its trade.
One thing I notice in tire meat fam
ine article was that one of our "dis
tributing" packing houses had a chance
to say that we can get the beef if we
were willing to pay the market price
their market price, I presume. Possibly
we could if we were willing tb give our
profit to the packers. Packers general
ly have a revlsable list which is revised
as often as the situation will permit it.
Today hfs solicitor will go out and find
the local butcher taking but few or
ders, only supplying regular customers,
and? finding that he can get orders
readily, up goes prices. When he finds
that the local man is supplying every
body, down goes prices. Now, how
in the name of common sense caYi any
one depend on a packing house supply
ing the local consumer and doing busi
ness on a sliding scale?
Few people realize what a Godsend
It is to have a home industry of home
slaughtered beef. If the people of El
Paso depended on packing house meat
furnished altogether, the retailing price
would be about 35 cents for loin steaks
today, whereas El Paso is only paying
20 and 25 cents for best cuts from local
You will find by investigating that
El Paso packers' products have advanc
ed here when there was no material
change either at the Fort Worth or Kan
sas City markets.
Take for instance, boiled hams. In the
east they can be bought for from 4
to 6 cents per pound less than in El
Paso. I know of an instance where -El
Paso packing houses raised the price
on pork loins so high that 'the butchers
began shipping them in from Wichita,
Kans., by express, and getting them for
less than our distributing packers of
fered. Down came the prices the fol
lowing week. I know of another In
stance where a refrigerator car was
started out of Kansas with pork prod
Houston to be killed the following week,
by prices' going down. I can quote you
of another car being started out of
Houston to be killed the fellowing week.
I presume you know what is meant by
being "killed." I don't know of a bet
ter word to be used.
I notice an advertisement of a con
cern which advertises:
"Average beef sales for the week
So and so."
I am wondering how they use the slid
ing scale to take the "average."
I am sure the local butchers would
have to use the sliding scale or some
other kind of a scale if we were de
pendent on being supplied by the pack
er and pay the "price," as has been so
well said by one of the packing house
El Paso's present meat supply
wouldn't grease a frying pan if" there
wasn't more to come.
I think El Paso's butchers will be
able to take care of the situation with
out having to pay the "price!: (packing

Denver, Colo., Jan. 15. For the first

The demands of the local union were
originally for a seven instead of an
eight hour day, an increase of a dollar
a day for members of the craft and
their assistants, changes to date from
March first, when the old scale ex
pired. These conditions were agreed to but,
before a final adjustment was made the
pressmen demanded that they be grant
ed time and a half for extra hour they
had worked under the new scale since
As this meant nearly $20,000 back pay
to the Times, Post. News and Repub
lican, the papers affected, the publish
ers refused and a lockout followed.
A conference between the publishers
and representative of the pressmen con
tinued until a late hour and adjourned
until today, without settlement.
It Is estimated that If an adjustment
is not speedily reached, the trouble may
involve other papers of the state.
The Post pressman walked out yester
day and the trouble spread to the Den

did not print at all Friday.
