HOGS ARE. SUAKCE.
Chicago Packers Dincbarre 5,000 Men
Owing to a. Remarkable Shortage in the
Chicago, Dec. 20. It is reported that
since December 1 about 5,000 employes
have been .discharged by the packing
comp inies at the Union stock yards
and that the plants are working
at h:Uf their capacity. It is also
said that unless the supply oi
hogs ia speedily increased it may be
necessary to make still further reduc
tions in the forces. The shortage in
the hog crop which has caused this
atate of affairs is unusual. From No
vember 1 to December 21 western
packing was but 2,280,000 hogs.
again;. i o,bzu,uuu lor me same
period last year, a shortage of
1,540,000. Chicago during the same
period this year packed 780,000 against
1,470,000 a year ago, a shortage oJ
nearly 700,000 hogs. This exceeds the
calculations of packers, who declare
the shortage will continue until spring.
Usually at this time of the year the
packicg houses are running at their
fullest capacity, but now the remark
able tcarcity of hogs and the big
prices makes the packing of pork
a decidedly costly and unprofit
able lusiness. The packing neces
sary lo supply the present orders
is done, but with as small a force of
men as is possible. Commission men
doing business at the yards figured that
the crop would be short and the prices
nigh, but not to its present extent
The shortage they ascribe to a va
riety of causes. Robert Strahorn, of
tbe fim of Strahorn & Co., who has
been in business for over thirty years,
"The ) eary spring ralna plays a prominent
pari In he question. Ia many sections tbe
continued wet weather killed oH the spring crop
of Digit tt at would be marketable now. Then
the low price of the product rarly in the spring
made the farmers careless, and instead of keep
ing their hogs, as they usually da until the
holidays, they started earlier and crowded
them wi .h cheap corn and sent them to the
market. The supply was greater than the de
mand then and prices mended. Now we feel
th result of the actions of the farmers. We
will have to wait for hogs to mature, and In the
meaotimr prices will naturally be high."
