ClOlifALLS The first cotton of the season to ap pear in The Republican office, was brought in last evening by Carrie A. Bellar, who has a ranch south of Cameihack, on Chicago avenue. Mr. Bellar is of the opinion that not only is his cotton about the first to appear in the valley, but that It is about as good as- any raised in the state. He lays his success in raising, cotton to the fact that he is an ardent preach er for anything in the nature of sub soiling. He stated last night that more and better crops would be raised in the valley providing more ranchers took to sub-soiling their lands. Last year Mr. Bellar obtained a bale and a half of cotton from each of hit eight acres, and expects to get even more this year. He will start to pick about the middle of August.

The packing in dustry replie dtoday to Senator Ken- yon's assertion on the floor of the sen ate that "the greatest propaganda that ever has been undertaken in this coun try li now in full swing with reference to the. bill for regulation of the pack ers. The reply was made by the In stitute of American Meat Packers, comprising about 200 packing firms. Thomas E. Wilson is chairman of the committee which is now directing tho work of the institute. The statement says : "Senator Kenyon has charged in the Senate of the United States that the packirs are sending out propaganda against this hill to place the packing industry under federal license, as if there were something wrong in this. The entire public is vitally interested in tho correct solution of the high cost of living. Complete understanding of all facts will dissipate suspicion and prejudice which, if relied upon for ad verse ltgislation, will harm us all. The livestock producer and the consumer as well as the packers. In the last analysis, the public will decide these issue.? and to them we will present the facts "The bill introduced by Senator Ken yon threatens the life of the packing industry. It is un-American and is a dangerous precedent for all business. It would amount to practically govern ment operation, which, with thla com plete Industry, would result in greater disaster than that which he have with the government operation of railroads, telegraph and telephone lines. "There is an- unprecedented propa ganda in favor of this legislation and against the packers. The wholesale grocers and the Federal Trade Com mission, for example, are active with propaganda of this character. We are doing exactly what every American citizen has a perfect right to do. We are opposing this bill in an open and legitimate manner and will continue to do so It is unthinkable that persons whose Investments and business are threatened by radical and vicious legis lation cannot lay the facts before the people. "The. senator has something to say on tiie high cost of living. Our busi ness is conducted efficiently and at the minimum profit of a small fraction of one cent per pound. Our volume en ables us to retain such a small profit that it cannot materially affect the cost to the consumer. The packers would gladly welocme an investigation by an unprejudiced and non-political body into the whole food problem from farm to table, inclusive. It is unfor tunate that such an examination was not made by the Federal Trade Com mission as directed by the fresident." Phone your classified ads to The Republican. We will collect later.
