Ized here representing almost every craft and occupation Its members pledged to abstaIn from meat and
butter particularly and other high priced foodstuffs In general nU prices are reduced That tie boycott
will bo continued until the object sought Is attained Is the confident expectation of those who have called
the meeting basing their hopes tn the law or supply and demand
If those responsible for hli1 prices cannot be persuaded to place their products on thc market at treasonable
reasonable figure then e arc going to quit buying their stuff We wi not be robbed and Ir theY want to
keep on killing their steers and making their butter whether thdy sell It or not we dont care We arc goIng
to show them that we know robbery when wo see I and that wedo not propose to stand for It any longer
Their arguments as to why price are hlsh hac not appealed to us as truthful nt all times and to speak to
the pint we dont lee what they say This fact remains and argmmnents will not offset I prices are
hllher than we wi pay and we are going to have them lowered ro without This from one oC the prime

That the movement against high prIces Is widespread and t 10c1 onl Is attested by time Associated
Press dispatches appearing In The News last night The macemit expression of Cardinal GIbbons on the subject
seems to he stirred the people or the cast lo acton and that the battle will be waged from many quar
