Directed by Its Members.
Portland, Ogn., Jan. 13. The prop
osition to incorporate n company of
live stock men for the purpose of es
tablishing independent packing houses
in the stock centers of the country to
f i i in . ..t a with Ihrt i w . lr n.iKiit."j
I ana restore prices on live siock, was
the all absorbing topic of discussion
in the national livestock convention
today. By a unanimous vote the con
vention indorsed a resolution favoring
the incorporation of such a company
and the establishment of. Independent
houses. Steps will now be taken to
raise stock subscribtions to the amount
j of 53,000,000 for the purpose of capital
; izing a corporation and placing It upon
a financial footing to proceed with the
work of establishing plants for the
purposes outlined in today's discus
sion. The Idea of the stockmen is to have
a, corporation composed entirely of
live stock raisers, who shall be share-
I holders In the company and directors
j of its business affairs. The plants of
I this company are to compete wkli
i combination plants, giving the produc
er a better price for his stock and
maintaining reasonable prices to the
consumer. In turn these independent
packing houses are to be supported by
live stock raisers against the combl-
nation,
I New that the association has en
dorsed a plan which is entirely separ
ate from th organization, the matter
of Interesting live stock men in the
! project and of securing subscriptions
I tcf raise the necessary capital, will be
I placed in the hands of committees to
j be appointed for the purpose in the
stock raising states.
Addresses made on the convention
floor Indicate that the stock men are
ready and willing to use their money
land energy in unlimited quantities to
bring about the desired result. The
j packers combination was denounced
j as a greedy combine that had not only
I taken the profits from the stock rais
j er, but now was reaching cut to try
to absorb his principal. The unanimous
I opinion was that the time has come
i when the stock raisers must rise and
overthrow this oppressing foe to the
i Industry.
The two sessions of the day were
devoted to addresses upon this and
ether matters of Importance to the
. . T - . . . . . 'I-1 - I

states as to live stock conditions there.
The afternoon was given over almost
entirely to the packing house ques
tion. ,
In the evening the delegates and
visitors were taken through Portland's
Chinatown where the celestials greet
ed them with a brilliant exhibition of
fireworks. The ladies in attendance
upon the convention were entertained
at the Portland hotel during the af
ternoon by the ladies of Portland.
OUTDOOR LIFE.
WHI Not Offset the III Effects of Cof
fee When One Cannot Digest It.
A' farmer says:
"It was not from liquor or tobacco
that for ten years or more I suffered
from dyspepsia and stomach trouble,
they were caused by the use of coffe-?
until I got so bad I had to give up
coffee entirely and almost give .ip
feuting. There were times when I
could eat only boiled milk and bread
and when I went to the field to work
I had to take some bread ;nd butter
along to give me strength.
"I doctored with doctors and took
almost everything I could get for my
stomach in the way of medicine but if
I got any better It only lasted a little
while until I was almost a walking
skeleton.
"One day I read an ad for Postum
and told my wife I would try it and as
to the following facts I will make affi
davit before any Judge:
"I quit coffee entirely and used
Postum !n its place. I have regained
my health entirely and can eat any
thing that Is cooked to eat. I have in
creased In weight until now I weigh
more than I ever did; I have not taken
any medicine for my stomach since I
began using Postum. Why, I believo
Postum will almost digest an iron
wedge.
"My family would stick to coffee at
first, but they saw the effects it had
on me and when they were feeling bad
they began to use Postum. one at a
time, until now we all use Postum."
