What Determines Meat and
Some stock men still think that Swift &
Company-and other big packers-can pay
as little for live-stock as they wish.
Some consumers are still led to believe
that the packers can charge as much for
dressed meat as they wish.
This is not true. These prices are fixed by
a law of human nature as old as human
nature itself-the law of supply and demand.
When more people want meat than there
is meat to be had, the scramble along the line .
to get it for them sends prices up. When
there is more meat than there are people who
want it, the scramble all along the line to get
rid .of it within a few days, while it is still
fresh, sends prices down.
When prices of meat go up, Swift &
Company not only can pay the producer
more, but has to pay him more, or some
other packer will.
Similarly, when prices recede all down the
line Swift & Company cannot continue to pay
the producer the same prices as before, and
still remain in the packing business.
All the packer can do is to keep the expense
of turning stock into meat at a minimum,
so that the consumer can get as much as
possible for his money, and the producer as
much as possible for his live-stock.
Thanks to its splendid plants, modern
methods, branch houses, car routes, fleet of
refrigerator cars, experience and organization,
Swift & Company is able to pay for live
cattle 90 per cent of what it receives for beef
and by-products, and to cover expense of
production and distribution, as well as its
profit (a small fraction of a cent per pound)
out of the other 10 per cent.

Southern Land Congress Plans For
Continuance Of Work Stopped By
Federal Control-President War.
field Points Out Danger in
Savannah, Ga.-In the Southern
Land Congress just held here, with
fourteen Southern states represented,
it was clearly demonstrated that the
great land associations which are seek
ing Southern development, and, now, a
Place to locate many of the returning
American soldiers, must have adequate
support, if they are to continue their
important constructive work.
The congress, which was held under
the auspices of four of the largest land
associations in the South, all of which
were established by the Southern Set
tlement and Development Organiza.
tion, represented a membership of
more than 3,000, including leading
farmers in every Southern state, and
over 25,000,000 acres of land.
Formerly, this organization, of
which S. Davies Warfield of Baltimore,
Md., is president, and which has done
much toward Southern agricultural de
velopment, was supported largely by
railroads operating in the South.
Declined to Help
Since government control lof the
railroads these contributions have
been withheld; and, in a striking state
ment to the land congress, President
Warfield said that notwithstanding the
appeal made in a petition by 27 South
ern senators from 15 states, that the
national railroad administration con
tinue these contributions to the or
ganization, the director general de
clined on the ground that contribu
tions should not be made to a "pri
vate organization not under govern
This position was taken, notwith
standing Maryland had granted it a
charter, and given it $30,000 from the
state treasury, thus attesting its pub
"It is indeed unfortunate," Mr. War
field said, "when an agency like this,
organized not for gain but for the
general good, and which is admitted
by the administration to be 'a highly
meritorious one,' must be discontinued
on a mere pretense in order that auto
egatic methods may be firmly entrench
ed. If these organizations are to ac
complish their constructive aims in the
development of the South and its mil
lions of acres of productive land, the
restoration of sanely regulated private
management of the railroads is essen
Mr. Warfield said support had thus
been withdrawn by the railroad ad
ministration from an agency which had
done and could do more than any other
in assisting in providing these very
products needed for the winning of the
Shall Autocracy Continue?
"It may be natural," he said, "that
those in power should wish to perpet
uate theIr great powers, but recently
granied to them, or as many of them
as they can hold. But such an au
tocracy as congress was compelled, un
doe- conditions of war-, to temporarily
set up, it may be safely assumed, was
intended for the purpose of winning
the war only. And we must take care,
lost we now create in this country thet
very conditions which the life's blood
of millions of men has been shod to
destroy in other- countries!"
Asserting that for this very reason,
questions arising from the two schools
of thought -- private or government
ownership of utilite's -- will likeoly be
made political issues, and very soon
occupy the attention of the two gr-eat
political parties, Mr. Warfield declared
that the people of the countr-y must
decide upon one of two courses: First,
government owner-ship, under which
the railroads will seek to get all they
can for their holdings, and withuut
regard. to whether- such ownership is
to the advantage of too people; and,
seoond, restored and proporly regulated
private management which will assure
to them bettor service and the benefits
of individual initjative.
"My own judgment is," Mr-. War
field said, "that only thrnilgh compre
hensive plans of contr-ol and regula
tion under private management and
initiative, can the best results be ob
tained from any of the great indus
tries of the country."
Shipper. And Land Owners
Conoerniag thte vital interests of the
sthIpper's and the land owners, in these
pr-oblemus, Mr. Warld said:
"The shippers and land owner's of
the country are as much concerned in
the (questions at iue -- whether- the
railroads are owned and operated by
the government or Mader private own
ership and operation--as any intere~st
Involved. The securitAes of their own
companies, .if key are Oorporations,
are affected; and ift hey are .mot
corporationa, their busainess is affected
by the symp~athetiG effect of any a'tion

railroad secutes outstanding. More
over-, the success of the shipper, and(
land owner is direoGF' enpdent upon
adequate and proper r re~ad develop

"If there is a people to whomx the
very idea of such a system of ptater
naism-governwbat ownership and all
that it involves--must be r'epugnant, It
is these of us who live In the Southl."
It was dleterm~ined by the Congroess
that the four land associations shall
