'There's aßeason WESTERNERS OPPOSE LICENSING AS CURB FOR MEAT PAC KERS Might as Well Take Away Wagons as Refrigerator Cars, Say s Ex-Governor Ammon at Hear- . ing; Enrich Them, Say Cattlemen. Washington, Aug. 28.—Westerners opposed to regulation of the packing industry as proposed in the Kenyon and Kendriek bills occupied almost the eiclusive attention of senate investi gating committee, today, in its hear ings on the two measures. A large dele gation of Colorado citizens, led by E. M. Ammons, former governor of the state, consumed most of the day and the dele gation leader wound up the hearing with a speech which, contrary to custom, was applauded warmly in the committee room. "The agitation against high prices has developed an intention to find a goat somewhere and this legislation would make the packers the goat," the former governor said. Touching upon experience with forest land leases and the national experience with railroads, telephones and war re strictions, he asserted that there was "a deadly fear of any more of it." Take Wagons, Says Governor. "I'm not opposed to regulation by law," Mr. Ammons said, "but I am op posed to laws which give directionary powers to officials to make laws.' "If you want to divorce packers from ownership of refrigerator cars—-I think you might as well take away their deliv ery wagons—pass a law and say so. The same for stockyards. "Our experience is that when the yards are owned by people interested in the business we get more facilities and more competition than when some one owns them just for investment. "Nor do 1 think you ought by license to control market news—that is not freedom of the press. Make the laws against, circulation of misinformation mire tringent.

After completion of its open meeting during the inorninc. the committee will close its door and take up pendit amendments. It i- litvel> that (he first to be considered will propose elmination of the international labor section and reduction of the representation of then dominions in the league of nations as sembly. Today, the committee heard several negro delegations who proposed amend ments guaranteeing race equality and providing for an American mandatory over Germany's African colonies. Negroes Offer Plan. "The black man has given notice," said A. Whaley, a New York negro, "that what he has suffered in the past will not. be endured in the future. He means business now. There can be no compromise." Two amendments wcer proposed by the equal rights league. One would pro vide in the league of nations covenant that the members would agree and vouchsafe to their own citizens the "possession of full liberty, rights of democracy, and protection of life without restriction or distinction based on race, color, creed or previous conditions." The other would add a sim ilar guarantee as a separate section of the treaty. Complaints of several inid-Kutupean nationalities will be presented at tomor row's hearing. Democrats Grow Sarcastic. Senator Williams, democrat. Missis sippi. a member of the committee, crit icized the committee's course in its hear ings which had to do not so much with settlement of the war as with "proposals to dismember the countries which were our allies." He referred to the hearings granted Egyptian, Irish and Hast Indian repre sentatives and predicted that the French colonies next would ask to be heard. Senator King, democrat, Ftah, asked when the committee expected to hear from the Filipinos, the American In dians and "the sections of New York city inhabited by Russian Jews." and Senator Williams replied that, "probably the only reason they haven't, been heard is because they haven't said anything." Townsend States Objections. In a short speech on the league of na tions. Senator Townsend, republican, Michigan, announced he could not vote for the treaty "unless it. tan be made clear by reservation, if that can be done or, if necessary, by amendment, that we engage only for those things which we can perforin without injury to our own country." Among the features of the covenant lo which Senator Townsend objected were the withdrawal provision, the Mon roe doctrine article, the plan for deal ing with domestic questions and ar ticle 10.

But make all your regulations in law. so that every man can have a day in court before beiug penalized." Denver Evidence Belittled. "Do you think there are any evils in the packing industry we ought to cor rect?" asked Senator Itansdell, demo crat, Louisiana. "There may be, but I know of none, the witness responded. Senator Kendriek, democrat, Wyom ing, and Kenyon, republican, Iowa, arg tied points which members of the dele gation brought up. The latter read at some length to IL G. Prey, a Denver commission man. evidence taken by the federal packing commission. The report stated that Denver citizens had testified under oath that the five big packers ob tained advantages in the Denver stock yards regularly. Mr. Prey, in reply, m - timated that the senator would attach less weight to these arguments if he know the witnesses the commission pro-* duced. P. W. Olsen, of Cokeville, Wyo.. read a commercial club resolution against the bad plenty of law already to control the bills and said himself that "the country situation.'' The geographical source of opposition was switched t" the south, late in the day, when C. E. Thomas, a Prattsville, Ala., banker said that "the packers have brought prosperity wherever they have come in the southern country. We fear that restrictions on them now may stop the growth of our territory," he said. W. S. Smith, a producer in the same locality was even more emphatic. "We feel the big packers have done more to put money in our pock ets," lie asserted, "than has the entile department of agriculture."
