CHICAGO, May 2. The raid made
Wednesday evening on the house of ill-
fame at IW Michigan street has brought
to light a conspiracy which was so care
fully planned, so cleverly carried out, that
only the overrealousness of the prime
movers in the scheme prevented its abso
lute success. The conspiracy is so far
reaching and so contemptible in tbe ends
sought to ) attained that the grand jury
should waste no time in making a compre
henMve and thorongh investigation of t'e
whole matter. The scheme as it was car
ried out was to decoy a young woman, !disa
Cora Davis, into a disreputable bouse and
then have the establishment raidad bv the
police, thus causing her arrest and thereby
forever blasting ber reputation.
The Brearh-f-Proanie Soit.
There are twt features connected with
the case wLich add to its seriousne'w. Tb
first is that -Vis Davis is at prernt the
plaintiff in a breach -of -promise suit
against a Chicago dentL-t named Frederick
M. Merrill, who has an o:Tii ia the Amer
ican Hxpre-s bu-.l ling. 7' Monroe street,

of Chicago were a party to lLi very pe
culiar raid. About two months mo Dr.

man of tbe select committee appointed
May 18, 19, to investigate the transporta

ate yesterday his long delayed report. It
is extremely voluminous, and complains
that there was a decided disinclination of
witnesses to say anything that would in
jure tbe dressed beef interests of Chicago,
for fear, the committee thinks, of boycot

with unlimited capital, now control the
whole dressed beef business ci the coun

The "-Chicago combine began with the
"evener" combination in 1573, which was
made bet ween the th ree trunk I ines between
Chicago and Xew York the Pennsylvania
Central, Xew York Central, and Erie who,
by agreement, charged $115 for each car
load of cattle shipped from Chicago to Xew
York, and allowed certain shippers in Chi
cago, known as -eveners," 113 of this amount
on each car-load. Tbe result of this, says
the committee, was to destroy the St. Iuis
cattle market and to concentrate the trade
at Chicago, w here it has since remained. In
ISTTs the dressed beef business first assumed
an important character, aud, throush its
antagonism, the "evener" tombinutiun
ceased to exist.

The com mi ttee say t hat w hate ver t he ev i

chw combination between the fonrdressed
ls-f firms at Chicago, called popularly
"Tbe Big Four," there is practically a com
bination nut to bid aeainst each other,
either for purchase or sale. It was impos
sible to get witnesses at Chicago to testify
openly as to the facts, but in private, em

of the committee that there was no doubt
a combination existed between the "Big

In investigating the branch of the sub

creased in price while beef had not been
made cheaper, the committee examined
Phil Armour. He testified that no such
agreement existed, aud while the commit
te d-w- not wish to contradict his state
ment. It Is convinced that even without
agreement among the principals, their
agents have brought about all the possible
effects of such an arrangemeut. The over
whelming weight of teatinajny of witnesses
of the highest character is to tbe effect
that cattle-owner going with their cattle
to the Chicago and Kansas City markets
find no competition among buyers. It Is
also human nature that it should be so.

that the prices of choice parts of the beef

committee says, i that the railways, by
discriminating against th shipment of
cattle to any other place than Chicago, by
establishing stork yards there, at which
the charges forfeeding. etc.. are exorbitant
on cattle in transit, and by the general ue
of their tremendous power, have brought

In conclusion the committee says that
it is iinpoKsiide that Chicago should con

development of the country .the movement
west of the center of population, and other
influences are working surely to relief in
this direction. Tbey recommend the
prompt passage of measures they have re

England for the removal of t he strict quar

the monopoly in advance of shipment of
