Tke Hhlpanr r Cattle.
At tbe meeting of Um Farmers Cob
ireeetonal tnstiiute, tbe paper reed by
Mr. John A. Wilton, of Rural, oa Im
proved Cattle," brought out a diaoaaaioo
which elicited the following reeolatton:
Wmui. It sppesri taat certain beef
combine are interfering with private
ahipunU of cattle to European coua
trire oy contracting in advance for ail the
pre at nad prospective shipping capac
Hj for aeeeaon. th-reby controlling the
market of export rattle to the injury of
the producer. Therefore, be it by the
E eventh Congressional District Fanner
institute of the Mate of Illinois, at it
present seen ion in the city of Rock Is
land. Rmotttd, That we request our senators
s- d representatives in congress to bring
this matter before their respective bodies
in a manner that ia their judgment may
eem best to bring the producer the de
al red relief.
Tbia resolution, while perfect! v proper
and timely, fails to fully reflect the senti
seat of the institute or the diarussioa
that led up to in adoption. After the read
ing of Mr Wilson' interesting paper. Mr.
Hoetatter. of Mt Carroll, one of the v:ca
preetdoau of the state board of agricul
ture, severely critic; led the reatneticaa
placed on American cattle by European
couatries. The speaker suggested a peti
tion to congress asking for an investiga
tion into the subject by the different con
sult and the passage of remedial legisla
tion Mr Hostetter claimed that Amii
can cattle and bog were highly tupenor
to those of foreign countries, but the un
fair restrictions placed upon them almost
prohibited eioortat n
Then the subject of beef combines con
trolling the shipping facilities came up,
and the above resolution was the result.
But no mention was made in the reaolu
tioa of the restriction! on American cat
tle, the greatest drawback towards secur
ing s foreign market for our producers.
What the farmers want it mora legisla
tion in their fav r. not protection
agaiaat foreign competitors, but the
breaking dowB of the commercial barriers
which aow surround them They nave
the remedy la their own hands, but at
loag as they continue to vote for the
"home market' fallacy, thev need expect
bo relief from their impoverisbnawt
