Independent Packing Company
Expects to Have Products
on Market in a Year.
CAPITALIZED AT $5,000,000.
Kansas City, Pueblo and Denver
Are Working Ilard to Pro
cure the Plant Good
Denver. Colo.. Oct 23. Plans are all
settled for the establishment of the new
Independent Packing Company, and with
in ono year the products of the concern
will be on the market. The plant will be
located in either Kansas City. Pueblo or
Denver, the selection of the site having
been left until stock subscriptions are In.
The huge enterprise, which is purely a
Western concern, will be capltallxed for
t3.CCO.O00. and will be supported by stock
men in Illinois, Missouri. Nebraska. Kan
sas. Indian Territory. Texas, New Mexico.
Wyoming. Colorado? Utah. Arizona and
California. It Is expected to deal a severe
blow to tho Packing Trust It Is 'Jie Inten
tion to buy cattle from the range, and. If
that supply Is not sufficient to purchase
them In the open market When tha trust
arbitrarily lowers the price of stock, the
Independent Packing Company's members
will be able to obtain a natural price from
their own concern.
Directors of the company have elected
all officers, except the president who will
be chosen in Portland. Ore., when the
National Live-Stock Association meets
on January 12. W. E. Halsall of Texas,
J. F. Murphy of Montana and Colonel W.
B. Hughes of Denver are candidates for
this honor. L. F. Wilson of Texas Is per
manent vice president T. W. Flato of
Missouri treasurer, and Charles F. Martin
of Denver secretary.
The directors ratified and stoned this
week what Is known as tho "trust agree
ment" by which SI per cent of the stock
is held by stockmen Interested in the con
cern. This action precludes outsiders from
gaining control of tho enterprise.
"While we were in session," sold Charles
P. Martin, "the directors received unso
licited subscriptions to stock amounting
to more than JlOU.toO. The first thing to
be done now Is to finance the institution.
As the most expedient method of accom
plishing that end the directorate decided
to refer stock subscriptions to the repre
sentatives of the various States on the
board. The manner of raiting funds will
be left to the discretion of each director
in his respecUve State."
An execuUvc committee of five members
was chosen to conduct tha necessary busi
ness of the company during tho Interims
between directors' meetings. Those elected
were: L. F. Wilson of Texas. F. W. Flato
of Missouri. E. 11 Halsell of Indian Ter
ritory. Paul Russell of Kansas and C. F.
Martin of Colorado.
CONFINED TO STOCKMEN.
It Is the purpose of the directors to con
fine, as far as possible, subscriptions for
stock to stockmen, who will be benefited
by the antitrust enterprise. Stock will be
sold in as small quantities as are wanted,
and It Is expected when the entire capital
Is paid up the list of stockholders will be
"It is a notorious fact." said Mr. Mur
phy of Montana, "that the packers
profits are ridiculously in excess of the
stock-raisers' or stock-feeders. We need
a better market for the Western live
stock product We have concluded that It
we wish to remain in the field, we have
got to resort to original measures to re
store fair prices. Hence the new concern."
It Is planned to pay dividends from the
start and at the same time build up a
local Industry. The Continental Trust
Company of Denver has been selected as
the depository for the new packing com
pany. Much activity Is being displayed by the
various cities desirous of getting tho
Elant which wUl cost half a million dol

BESIEGED WEDDING FEAST.
Troopers Didn't Wait for a For
Dallas, Tex.. Oct 2S. The recent death
of the wife of General Stephen D. Lee of
Mississippi recalls an episode which oc
curred at her wedding In Columbus. Miss.,
during tho war between the States.
Mrs. Lee was the daughter of Major and
Mrs. Jamts T. Harrison, members of old
families of wealth and social prominence
In the South. Miss Harrison was in the
bloom of girlhood when the war began.
General Lee was one of the South'! young
est commanding officers, and the proverb
ial wind which blows good to some one
brought the young General to Columbus
with a. wound In his foot It was a caso
of Ioo at first sight and General Lee and
Miss Regina Harrison were married.
At the tlrno of the wedding the food
supply of the South was hardly equal to
her generous impulses, and everything In
the form of dainties was sent to the army
hospitals. Mrs. Harrison, however, spread
an old-fashioned wedding feast Not for
several years had Columbus society seen
to many good things to eat
It was at that time that General Sul
Ross was In Mississippi with his Texas
cavalry brigade. General Ross served as
best man to General Le at his wedding.
The Texas troopers caught a rumor of the
feast and decided to lay siege to the wed
ding supper. A scout brought word to
headquarters that the Texas cavalry
troopers were preparing for a raid. A
cordon of the State troops was hurriedly
drawn around the house In which the wed
ding feast was spread.
After the wedding supper was over the

purpose of making a tour of the United
States to raise funds for destitute Mace

American colleges, Furnajleff having stud
led at Princeton and Popon at Hamilton.
According to reliable private reports, tht
condition of Internal affairs In Bulgaria Is
alarming. All the revolutionary bands
which were operating In Eastern Macedo

nf Sofia are thronged with Insurgents, who
beg for food and shelter. It Is feared
that these Insurgents will create disturb
ances In the country before long, unless a
decided Improvement Is effected In Mace
The Bulgarian Government la said to be
demobilizing Its reserves with great reluct

many quarters that the Turks will take
advantage of the sltuaUon and attack Bul

ment will be obliged to send the reserves
to their homes.

NEW MILK BILL
St Louis Dealers Will Introduce
Substitute Ordinance Xext
PROVIDE FOR REDUCED FINES.
Inspectors Shall Tay for Samples
Taken in Analysis and Must
Visit Depots During
An effort Is being mads by milk dealers
to have the existing pure-milk law re
pealed, as they consider that Its provisions
are unjust To this end the St Louis
Dairymen's Club has had a new ordinance
drawn, and It will be Introduced In the
Municipal Assembly Friday.
The new law has been carefully pre
paded by attorneys employed by the dairy
men, and It la stated that an effort has
been mado to secure pure milk for the
consumer and at the same time make the
Inspection conform to the convenience of
the milk dealer as much as practicable,
and to reduco the minimum fine provided
The preamblo states that the oblect of
the ordinance Is to "prr-lbe penalties to
prevent the sale for consumption as food
to families and to other persons of any but
pure, wholesome milk and cream and to
fix the minimum limit of Its composition
and defining Its qualities."
The bill also prescribes the duUes and
powers of the officers employed by the
city: provides for tho appointment of ad
ditional assistants in the office of the
City Chemist and repeals the existing
ordinance In Its entirety. .
Under the provisions of the proposed
ordinance the enforcement of its pro
visions is placed In charge of the Health
Commissioner. The Commissioner is ato
empowered to formulate new rules, which
he may deem necessary to govern the
City Chamist and his nsHlstants in the In
spection and analysis of cream and milk.
Fire additional employes In the office of
the City Chemist are provided for. to be
appointed by the Health Commissioner,
with the approval of the Hoard of Health.
In the existing ordinance the power of
appointing employes In the Chemist's of
fice Is given to the City Chemist, with the
approval of th Board of HeaffTi.
It Is provided that the men appointed by
the Health Commissioner as Inspector
shall have had at least five successive
years of practical experience In the milk
The first radical changes between the
present and the projected ordinances oc
cur In the sixth section, tho one provid
ing for tho Inspection of milk.
'I he present ordinance provides that the
City Chemist. Assistant Chemists and
Milk Inspectors shall each have the right
to enter and have full access to all places
where milk and cream are kept for sale.
In the ordinance proposed by the Dairy
men's Club, no mention Is made of the
City Chemist or his assistants. The only
persons having the right of access to the
milk are the Inspectors.
Tho projected ordinance also provides
that "such access shall be only during
reasonable hours," and that "the officer
taking the milk or cream for the pur
pose of testing shall pay for It according
to the market price of milk or cream."
In the present ordinance there Is no
menUon of these clauses.
Outside of other minor changes, the
Principal difference found In the two bills
i the amount of the fines. In all cases It
Is reduced in tho projected ordinance.
The present law provides for a fine of
not less than C3 nor mere than $1(0 for
anv person knowlnglv selling adulterated
milk or cream. For the same offense tho
projected ordinance provides a fine of sot
less than J10 nor more than $2.
