The un popularity which some of the so- culled trusts have achieved In this country In the course of the past few years apparently Is as nothing compared with the odium which at taches to them In the minds of most Kuropeans. Nothing will throw a Ku- ropean county Into such a panic of alarm anu resentment as the re port that an American trust has de signs on their market In this, that or any other line. A few years ago England spent milli"ns of dollars, or rather their equivalent In pounds, to frustrate the attempt of the tobacco trust to secure control of the British tobacco trade. A little later Germany waifeil a bitter campaign to bar out various lines of American manufac tures. Now France Is violently pro testing and preparing to put Its pro test Into action In order to prevent the beef trust from obtaining a dom inant position In the meat business of their country, as the Frenchmen are convinced that the trust is trying to do. Not but that Europe has trusts of its own. though they are not called that name. In almost every Kuro pean country there are monopolies protected by the government itself and some of them are operated di rectly by the various government. There are combinations as powerful ii: their own fields as Standard oil; In fact, the European oil combination opt rating in the Itusslan and other oil fields is quite as Impressive an or ganization as its American compet itor, and Is the Standard's one great rival for the oil trade of the world. There are also In Europe combina tions among manufacturers to main tain prices. These exist In almost every important line of production In (lermany and to a less extent In France and (treat Hritnin. Itut the people of these countries have not he. ome excited about the trust feat- ures of their Industrial organizations as Americans have. Even in casts where they have encountered feat ures in the operation of big busi ness which seems to be inimical to the general welfare their way has not teen to get out In the middle of the road and shout about It to all the world.

Stafford Felipe Gurule Salesmen the Atlantic. Any soiled linen relat ing to their national business affairs Is washed away very, very privately by some inconspicuous official body, or else It Is tucked out of sight and the people conveniently forget about it. Where the foreigner, and particu larly the American, is concerned, how ever, the action of the native Euro pean is very different. The very fact that the people of the United States have indulged In so much discussion of the iniquities of their trusts has given Europeans an exaggerated Idea of the power and the octopus-like characteristics of American indus trial combinations. Consequently, whenever the cry is raised in any European nation that an American trust is preparing to Invade their market the people grab their pocket books with both hands and shout with all their might for the government to kick the Invader out a task which the government usually is quite will ing to undertake. The agitation which is now being laised against the beef trust in France is a good case In point. The cattle raising business Is an Import ant one in France and the agricul tural interests are greatly alarmed for fear that the American packers will secure control of the French meat market and ruin the local cat tle growing Industry by the importa tion of the American product. They have taken up the matter with their representatives in the senate and In the chamber of deputies and as these representatives are both numer ous and powerful It Is altogether likely that their demand for legisla tive action against the American packing combination will be heeded. Not only has a clamor for legislation been started but the story Is cur rent here that a special representa tive of the French agriculturists has been spending the past two months in -the I'nited States collecting In formation abou the control of the American market by the 'hicago (tackers and that this information Is to be used to show the Frenchmen what they may expect if the dreaded Yankee octopus strengthens Its foot hold in their country. According to this story the emissary who has been collecting this material In the I'nited StateB spent some time in each of the cities of New York. Huston. Chicago. St. lyouis. f'lnrlnnatl, Kansas City and Omaha nri that In addition he obtained here in Washington some ii. formation from reports of the de partment of commerce and labor that is regarded as good ammunition for use in the campaign against the American invaders. ... The leader In the movement to bar the beef trut from France, or at bast to restrict its former expansion, is M. Meline, formerly president of the council and minister of agricul ture. He Is an ab'e and Influential man and has the agricultural Inter etts solidly behind him. He professes to have Information of an elaborate Ian on the part of the Chicago pack ing combination to secure complete control of the slaughtering and pack ing business In France.

SELLERS OWNER ate this attempt was begun three years ago when representatives of the beef trust tried to purchase a large tract of land near Dieppe for the erection of abattoirs. The mu nicipality objected to this, and the Americans then turned to Oravllle Salnte Honorine, near Havre, where they established three Immense slaughtering plants at a cost of 10 000,000 francs. PURPOSE AND SCOPE or forest service The New Ilxtri-t Organization Will ; Aid Manually in tlw Work. Washington, Dec. 11. The Institu tion of six district offices in the west by the United States forest service, a a big piece of work which has Just been completed, involvt a complete change in the machinery of this branch of the government as regards the handling of national forests. As a result of the reorganization, the foreet service force at the headquar ters in this city has been reduced to the general administrative officers and to those who are conducting the investigative work of the service out side of the national forests. The six districts which have the same boundaries us the old inspec tion districts will be in charge of six district foresterB with headquarters in Denver, Colo., Ogden, Utah, Albu querque, iN. M., Missoula, Mona., Sun Francisco, Cul., and Portland, Ore. For nearly a year preparation for the district organizatinn has been going quietly but Hteadily forward. This has thrown an additional bur den upon a force already ixcewtlvely busy, but the work has been accom n Ished and uccotn plished on time. The transition has been particularly remarkable because Ii involved no material delay In the transaction of national forest busiritiui uhl.e the change was going on. "The forest .service, ' said (Jlfford I'inchot, United States f ii ester, "is putting a large part of its work into the field, where :t beliings. The or ganization on December 1 of the na tional forests Into six districts, each In charge of a local for:'e under a district forester, is something we hive been working towards fir a lng time. That we have not done it k ioii er. is because w dal not have a .-uf-tleient number of trained men to equip the distil Is. "The d.Htrii t organization will rm an a riiirh In i r us" of the na tional forests by the people, hei aiiS" there will not be the d lay Inevitable so long as national forest businc.-w is handled from Washington. It I also going to no an that tin re il always be officers with the power to make decisions. ner the. ground, who can look Into the facts for them selves, "vherever necessary without having to decide them at long range. I believe every man who uses the national forest will realize these things Inside of ix months " It Is probable that there have nev er been new government offices started with their procedure so fully and definitely outlined as that for the six district offices of the forest ser vice in the (t. It has been possible to start all the offices well equipped with men with both the training and experience to take up the work. A large proportion of them are men who hae formerly been In charge of national forests and who have been promoted to higher positions as the direct result of their efficiency. All the district officers are familiar with western conditions; many of them were born In the west and lived there before and after they entered the government forest work.
