Many will say that the lack of a
tariff the socalled Underwood tariff
law is to blame; that it opened up
the United States to the cattle centers
of the world for the exportation of
their cattle and hides, where both can
be produced cheaper than in the
Cnlted States, and thus stifled the
industry at home.

One man. prominent in the councils
of the cattlemen, asserted that what
rhe United Slates needed was protec
tion for its home cattle and credit
abroad to enable Europeans to buy
American meats when they are
raised. He said Belgium Is today

proper protection at home and the
United States would establish a credit

thinks this could be accomplished by
federal aid tn the way of loans to the

The Gronna. bill is one of the big
pieces of federal legislation now lac
ing the cattlemen and Its discussion
will he prominent In the conrenion
This Mil proposes a federal livestock
commission for the control of the in
dustry, including1 packeries. Many
cattlemen feel that this is necessary,
although many arc not favorable to
any sort of a commission, fearing that
it might have too much power. Still,
others point to the success of the
interstate commerce commission as
an example that federal control can
D maae a success.
Senator Asle J. Gronna is from
North Dakota, a cattle raising state.
and is acting on the advice of many
prominent cattlemen in the introduc-
tm of his bill and in working for
i J te his: measure.
The Kenyon-Kendrick bill, lntro-
duced a couple of years ago to cure
many or the evils which tne cattle
men believed were besetting them
from the packers, was finally laid
atvav as a solution that did not solve.
so the Gronna bill is now the leading;

United States has an inspection of

HEAD OF ARIZONA CATTLEMEN
SAYS GRONNA BILL WOULD BE
HARMFUL TO STOCK RAISING
T IS APPROVAL of the Gronna bill
jj on behalf of the cattlemen of
Arisona has been expressed by
Charles r. Mullen, president of the
Arizona State Cattle TGrowers as
socictlon in a statement he issued to
tne press. Mr. MuJlin bases his dis
approval of the Gronna hill on the
ground that it will hurt and not help
the production of livestock and he
gives several reasons. In Mr. Mul
len's opinion the bill Is the most im
portant topic that will come up for
discussion before the convention of
the American National livestock as
sociation. Mr. Mullen's statement follows:
"I am opposed to the Gronna bill,
in the first place, because there is
nothing in It that would stimulate
production, equalize receipts, stabilize
prices, encourage consumption of
meat or give us any additional
markets. In the second place the
packers are the distributors of our
products and on that account, gen
erally speaking, anything that hurts
the packers hurts the producer.
The central idea of this bill Is the
creation of a commission with un
limited powers to make such rules,
regulations and orders governing tbe
packing industry as it misfit se fit.
Our experience during the war proved
that private business cannot be suc
cessfully conducted by bureaus in
wasningxon. rne commission would
be political appointees, sad this means
inefficiency, graft and politics. I
honestly believe that If the packing
industry were turned over to this
commission it would mean Its ulti
mate destruction. , I am unalterably
opposed to the running of private
business by men at Washington.
urjcea snreness Before Action.
There are certain rro vision a of h
bill I am also opposed to. such as tbe
one requiring the packers to get out
of stockyards. The producers cannot
now bny these yards and if the pack
ers are to be taken out of them they
will be run by people having no sym
pathy with or interest In our indnxtrv
and whose one interest will be to col
lect tneir dividends. Of course, my
main objection is the commission, be
cause this means these political ap
pointees could make laws for the
packers and then interpret their own
laws and enforce them. This is not a
fair nor Just law. It is dangerous as

It is not a question for the convention

question whether we favor this hill.
1 do not say I would not favor some

I see no other alternative.
