TO FIGHT THE TRUST
BATTLEMEN OF MISSOURI OR-
GANIZE INDEPENDENT PACK-
DISTRIBUTION OF THE STOCK
IT IS SO ARRANGED THAT THE
COMBINE CANNOT CONTROL
Kansas City, Mo, Sept 2.Twenty-
five cattlemen from different portions
of the grazing section of Missouri met
here last night and agreed to form an
independent grazing company to com
pete with the so-called packing combi
nation The name agreed upon was
the Independent Packing company.
Articles of incorporation will be drawn
up and agreed on today. The company
Will nave a capitalization of $5,000,000
and will be incorporated under the
laws of Anzona Of the proposed
capitalization, 51 per cent will be dis
posed of to be held trust by the
board of directors of the company.
This will insure the stockmen who are
interested in the concern that the
company will always be controlled by
the stock interests The rest of the
stock will be sold to stockmen if pos
sible, although no purchaser will be
The division of the stock as agreed
upon Tuesday was made to prevent
any possibility of the trust getting
control of the independent company
Two million dollars of the stock will
be issued at once and the rest will be
put out later
Formerly it was part of the plan to
include the United States Packing
company of Pueblo, Colo in the com
bination Now it is said the Pueblo
plant will never be built, but its cap
ital of over $1,500,000 will be offered
to the Independent Packing company
or will be allowed to revert back to
the stockmen who subscribed it.
Charles Martin, secretary of the
new concern, who was one of the pro
moters of the United States Packing
company and a stockholder, is in Kan
cas City promoting the organization
of the Independent Packing company.
The Independent Packing company
will build one plant in the Missouri
valley, but its exact location has not
been determined on It will be in
operation next year Another plant
will be built, probably in Texas
STOCKMEN MUST PAY.
After the First of January Free Trans
portation Will Be Curtailed.
Chicago Sept 2 Stockmen through
out the West, who have for many
ear been enjoying free transporta
tion from their homes and the ship
ping centers, will find this privilege
curtailed after Jan 1, 1904. The ex
ecutive officials of Western lines met
here Tuesday and agreed that on and
after the date mentioned they would
discontinue the issuance to stockmen
of return tiansportation, thereby com
pelling them to pay their fare to their
homes after having come to the various
shipping centers with stock Before
the agreement can be carried out,
however, a great deal of work will have
to be done by the traffic men.
Committees will be appointed soon
for the purpose of preparing a digest
of all the laws of the various states
pertaining to the subject of stockmen's
passes with a view to seeing what vio
lation, if any, will result from the ob
servance of the order A large num
ber of the Western states have enact
ed laws compelling the railroads to
issue passes to men charge of stock
cars but there is no uniformity in the
reqmiements The new regulations
are the same as those force in East
ern territory where the stock traffic is
not nearl} so great
The change is proposed largely for
the purpose of curtailing the operations
of ticket scalpers

the police an alleged confession of
the circumstances surrounding the
murderous raid on the company's
barns last Sunday morning, informed
Chief O'Neil, in the presence of a num

all his startling j'arns about the trag

there at all when the shooting took
The chief declared that Sluder's de
nial was no surprise to him, as ever
since the young man had been arrest
ed he had been telling one story and
contradicting it in its next breath.
The strange thing about Sluder now,
seems to be, as the police view it, his
familiarity with every move made by
the robbers, details which Henry
Biehl, one of the clerks in the office,
alone was supposed to know, except
ing the robbers themselves.
