V Swift & Company has frequently stated that its profit on beef averages only one fourth of a cent a pound, and hence has practically no effect on the price. Comparison has been made by the Federal Trade Commission of this profit with the profit on coal, and it has pointed out that anthracite coal operators are content with a profit of 25 cents a ton, whereas the beef profit of one-fourth of a cent a pound means a profit of $5.00 a ton. The comparison does not point out that anthracite coal at the seaboard is worth at wholesale about $7.00 a ton, whereas a ton of beef of fair quality is worth about $400.00 wholesale. To carry the comparison further, the 25 cent profit on coal is 3lz per cent of the $7.00 value. The $5.00 profit on beef is only 14 per cent of the $400.00 value. The profit has little effect on price in either case, but has less effect on the price of beef than on the price of coaL Coal may be stored in the open air indefinitely; beef must be kept in expensive coolers because it is highly perishable and must be refrigerated. Coal is handled by the carload or ton; beef is deliv ered to retailers by the pound or hundred weight Methods of handling are vastly different. Coal is handled in open cars; beef must be shipped in refrigerator cars at an even temperature. Fairness to the public, fairness to Swift & Company, fairness to the packing industry, demands that these indisputable facts be considered. It is impossible to disprove Swift & Company's state ment, that its profits on beef are so small as to have practically no effect on prices. Swift & Company, U. S. A.
