Frightful Food Thrown Into This City While the Government In spectors Sit Supinely By. What kind of Government Inspection have we been getting of Into In the matter of beef, pork and otlier food products? Wlmt slnUter Influence la itt work to polon the people of Chicago In the In teret of corporate monopoly? If It 1 the Beef Trust, the people should ilrlve It out of the Stntcl In one year the people of Chicago would have nerved on their tables T.141,:il0 pound of diseased meats, flh. poultry and vegetables If It were not for the activity of the city health Inspector. According to the report of Dr. Charles J. Whalen, Health Commis sioner, the government Inspectors have been derelict In their work and for years Chicago markets have been vend ing stuff that Is unfit to eat. In one week, ending Nov. 18, this Is whnt the city Inspectors condemned and destroyed: Two hundred and eleven cattle, 07,- .ISO pounds; 771 hogs, 120,002 pounds; forty sheep,, 1,410 pounds;thrce calves, 2S0 pounds: fourteen quarters of beef, 0.3SS pounds; total weight, 232,099 pounds. Condemned nnd destroyed after pass ing government Inspection: Fourteen quarters of beef. 0.3S8 pounds; four eattle, 1,407 pounds; total weight, 7.SS5 pounds. Inspectors In the "loop district" con demned and destroyed 11,S50 pounds of meats, fish, fruits and vegetables. Three lots of hams nnd bacon, weighing 3,025 pounds, wero condemn ed by the Inspector nt tho wholesale markets before S o'clock n. m. This material had been sent to Chicago from St. Louis nnd Omaha, having been rejected there. Suit has been entered against eight markets for violating of tho ordinance- which forbids the hanging or exposing of dressed meats on the street. Dr. Whalen sums up tho results achieved by his department from tho time city inspection was resumed as follows: Since Aug. 7 the weekly condemna tions of unfit food have averaged 137, 300 pounds of meats, tlsh, poultry, etc., nnd 23,100 pounds of fruit and vege tables, which, If maintained for tho year, would mako an aggregate- of 7,141.310 pounds of meat, etc., nnd of 1,201,200 pounds of fruits and vege tables condemned nnd destroyed as un fit for human food. The principal causes of meat con demnation were tuberculosis, "lumpy Jnw," hog cholera, immaturity, and emaciation; of fish, "taint" nnd state ness, and of fruit nnd vegetables, rot tenness. Under date of Nov. 17 tho chief meat Inspector nt the Union stock yards re ports to tho director of tho laboratory that "as n result of tho activity of tho city meat inspectors In condemning, tanking, nnd destroying emaciated and tuberculosis cnttlo in tho ."coolers" after they had been passed by the gov ernment Inspectors, tho packers aro ad vising shippers not to send such nul main Into this market. Tho condemned food has been found not only In the stock yards, but in pri vate markets nnd tho big cold-storago warehouses. It has been found in tran sit from other big ment packing cen ters nnd In raro instances already pro pared for tho table. Dr. Whalen says the city has n big problem to crush out this Immoral nnd dangerous traffic, nnd ho will resort to every legal resourco to bring his cru sade to n successful end. The beef trust is aiming to control the next legislature. Shoe Manufacturers to appeal to the President to remove the duty on hides, so that they will be cheaper. This country produces more hides than it needs to shoo Its people; but tho lleef Trut controls these hides. The lleef Trust raises tho price of tildes. This raises the price of leather, and this In turn liaises ,tho the price of shoes. So tho lleef Trust Is becoming the oppressor of the poor In the matter of food and raiment.

Secret Service Methods Canvass ers aro sent out In the guise of dis tributors to secure the names of per sons buying Independent beef. Crushing Competitors lleef Is sold nt cost and below until Independent competitors nrc driven out. Stop tho Tuberculosis Trust! Tlic Legislature to be elected next fall must take steps to drive out Tho Uecf Trust, The Patent Medicine Trust, The Life Insurance frauds, nnd The manufacturers who oppose the pure food laws, If Illinois Is to tnkc her proper place In the sisterhood of States. New York is showing an example to the whole country In the vim nnd vigor with which sho Is going after the life Insurance frauds. The developments in this Investiga tion show the methods that theso com panies have used In tho New York Statu Legislature, and which they have, presumably, used In tho Illinois State Legislature. Hut whero tho Insurnnco crooks harmed ono man, tho lleef Trust harms n million men. The Uecf Trust goes into every man's homo nnd taxes every mouthful of meat that ho eats. It starves his family nnd puts the necessaries of life beyond tho reach of tho common people. It is enabled to do this through tbo crookedness of our legislators, who are controlled by lleef Trust agents. Tho Beef Trust maintains a strong lobby nt Springfield and kills nil leg islation which it docs not like and looks out for legislation strictly to Us interest. The people aro forgotten. Hut If tho people aro forgotten, they do not forget. They remember tho steady influenco of tho Beef Trust nt Springfield and they also remember that whllo Mis souri and other neighboring States are moving against tho gigantic and rob bing combines that Illinois is supino. Cheaper meat nnd better meat Is sold to tho pooplo of tho Eastern States than to the people of Illinois, becnuso tho pcoplo of tho Eastern States will not stand for so much cor ruption in their Stato Legislature as Illinois does. The Bcof Trust Is doing moro to wards bringing on n great nnd bloody revolution In tho United States than all other ngcnclcs combined. Tho Beef Trust regulates tho price of food and laughs at tho law. The Beef Trust must go, PATRIOK J. OAHILL, The Popular Clerk of the Criminal Court. says the board lias no right to pass on slaughtered nnlmaW, but must ton tine Its Inspection to live stock, The opinion advises the hoard that It would have no standing as party to a suit to enjoin the Chicago health de partment from condemning carcasses passed by the State and government Inspectors. "Tills opinion," said Sec retary Prltehard of the health depart ment, "strengthens the city's Halms to be supreme In the Inspection of meat." Many of the Beef Trust employes wear rubber gloves while handling the cadavers. Otherwise they are In Imminent danger of blood iiolsonliig. Even tho embalming of food for the gullible public has Its attendant dan gers. Tho number ofTlend" nnd diseased hogs shipped by the Beef Trust and sold ns food Is something' awful. Numbers of hogs die In tho ears In transit to tho Beef Trust: their bodies are often eaten by the other hogs and their pet disease transmitted by them to tho human race. Illinois Legislature meets these worthies will be pointed out so that lie who runs may read. People must remember that the city had only eleven, inspectors at work on cattle, hogs, sheep and provisions, Necessarily their work must have been very Incomplete when there were :i(HMKM) cattle n week to Inspect. Tu berciilosls and cancer are bound to be shipped to all quarters as food. How many government officials does the Beef Trust control? What did that delegation of Stock Yards commission men ask tho mayor to do? Did they nsk him to order tho city health Inspectors out of the Stock Yards? Why did tho city administration point with pride to the fact that It protected the people of Chicago from the Beef Trust for live months nnd then think? Hid the same Influences affect this administration that health officials charged the Harrison administration with truckling to? Is there any one so base that ho would sacrifice the work of honest health Inspectors and Imperil the lives or every man, woman and child in Chicago to oblige some political friends? Or are there deeper reasons? Speak out, somebody, for hell Is not hot enough to roast n man who would bow to the Beef Trust in a matter of tuberculosis and cancer, THE REALM OF GRAFT. Beef Trust. Medicine Trust, Pure Food Foes, Patent Medicine Fiends Con trol State Legislation. Illinois Is the Only State in the Union Where the People Are Asleep. Now that the city lias quit Inspect ing, there Is nothing to prevent tho Beef Trust from spreading tuberculo sis and cancer broadcast. By the way, who did tho city hall collecting from the lee Trust last year? Hogs that go to Knglnnd nnd tho United States are not examined for trichina. All hogs for Germany, France nnd Austria are. Some escape, though. Beef Trusts nnd other Corporations that arc crooked or that want much from the Legislature without letting tho people get on to tho fact; nnd patent medicine trust's that nre afraid the people will leant that they nrc selling poisons have discovered n new way of controlling public opinion without showing their own hand. They do their business through professional advertising ngents, who claim to be nblo to haiidlo tho dally nnd country press. In turn tho advertising agents put In largo ads. for the Beef Trust, the Medlclno Trust or some other trust ns the enso may be, always stipulating In their contracts that nil contracts for advertising are void if the State Legislature passes any law Inimical to the Beef Trust, Medlclno Trust. That Is about as comprehensive, ns frank ly Itnpldcnt a scheme 'of controlling legislation as it is posslblo to Ining UA And so the Patent ' Medi cine Trust of America, for one, maintains n lawyer In Chicago, and n permanent secretary, office nnd staff. In every Stato capital In the United States it maintains an agent whose The government Inspectors If they work every mlnuto of their time, can give but ten seconds to each animal In spected. No wonder cancer, lupus, tuberculosis nnd llko aliments aro spreading. The Beef Trust must go. Of what use is tho Illinois ruro Food Law, when millions of chickens, turkeys and geeso aro kept hi cold storage within tho State for years, with their entrails undrawn?

Do not vote for nny ,man for the legUlnture who Is not known to lie an enemy of the Beef Trust. How many Congressmen have wo who nro not controlled by the Beef Trust? The Beef Trust owned Legislature of Illinois passed a law limiting tho liability of any corporation taking n human life to $3,000. And the peoplo sit iiiplne nnd permit this sort of thins! The Beef Trust lobby would well In the hands of a mob. look The Beef Trust has raised tho prlco of shoes by raising tho price of hides, Tho number of members of tho pres ent Legislature controlled by tho Beef Trust Is known to n man. Tho Beef Trust has triumphed In the councils of tho Itepiibllcau party at Washington. There will be no hostile legislation this winter. Tho Presi dent's message on the subject of rail road discrimination tho Beef Trust's long suit was surprisingly weak, com ing from him. All of which means that Depew nnd the otlier railroad men and trust magnates aro bossing the Ite piibllcau policy In Congress. And It means nlso Hint tho Democrats will sweep tho country next fall from the Atlantic to tho Pacific. The Beef Trust has ruined many it prosperous small business. The hide industry, tho boot and shoo trade, Hie sheepskin tanners, tho leather tanners, the wool pullers, the wool trade, tho vegetablo market, tho poultry busi ness, the retail meat markets, the wholesnlo meat markets, tho soap trade nil theso and many moro have been swallowed up by this awful leviathan. How much longer will tho peoplo stand It? Beef Trust cold storage Is n bad thing. Yet It Is istpulur Just now. The rotten fond turned out hi the hIiiih of diseased Hultry from Beef Trust roosts is tuns touciicu uHtu ny neaitii com missioner Whalen, of Chicago, In his annual rcMrt: "Cold storage Is one of our present iuccssltlcH, but It Is evident that It has Ikhmi shamefully misused by dis honest men. While certain articles of food nre better after more or less prolonged storage, certain fruits nnd vegetables spoil so soon after removal from the cold storage ns to glvo n very unfavorable Impression. "Again, poultry or game Is often stored In an undrawn condition nnd In afterward sold to tho public. Attention has been called to ninny cases of ptomaine poisoning resulting from eat ing gamo or poultry which had been stored In an undrawn state. The real evil comes from frecxlng moro or less tainted meats nnd flsh, Tho process of decay Is checked, but the ptomaines remain. Tho purchaser docs not detect nny odor, but n gnstro-enterltls Is apt to result none the less. "There Is u suspicion that much of the sickness contracted In strange hotels, Is thus caused." By the way, what is Dr. Dyson, who used to be government chief inspector, doing now? Why did the State Live Stock Com mlssiouers become Indignant when Mayor Dunne and Health Commission er Whalen re-established Inspection nt the Stock Yards Aug. 7 last? Why did the State Live Stock Board wish to enjoin tho city of Chi cago from destroying tuberculous nnd cancerous cnttlo after government and Stato Inspectors had approved them, nnd nfter the city Inspectors had con demned them? If Mayor Dunne's administration de stroyed over 11,000,000 pounds of can cerous und tuberculous meat In II vo months, by the inspection work of only cloven Inspectors, how many bil lions of pounds of cauccr nnd tuber culosis wero fed to tho pcoplo during the years that there was no city In spectlou? How much longer will tho American people put up with diseased food? A correspondent asks: "How many of the representatives of foreign gov ernments nro In the pay of tho Bcof Trust? It might Interest tho (icoplo of some of them to find out." Itemcmber tho Beef Trust when yon nro nominating candidates for the Lcglsluturo this yenr. Illinois is not only tho hcndiiunrtcrs of tho Beef Trust, but tho peoplo of Illinois aro Its principal victims. The Illinois Legislature will either get after tho Beef Trust or the people will get after the Illinois Legislature. Tho Beef Trust slaughter houses me llko morgues, Tho Beef Trust mag nates lovo to praise their clcniillucfs In magazlno articles. Of course theo slaughter Joints aro cleanly. They Imvo to bo. They aro sanitary In near ly every respect. The only unsani tary things ulioiit tho Trust slaughter houses aro tho cancerous cattle, tho tuberculosis cows and tho trlehlun hogs. Tho sutroundlngs have to bo kept cleanly, llko nil buildings devot ed to tho euro of cadavers. F.ven the embalmed beef turned out by the Trust Is sanitary from uu embnliiier's standpoint.

Dealers In Germany, Franco nnd Great Britain must Inclose postago with their orders. Dally News cattle rc'tort January Id: "Quality was rather oor, offers run ning largely to eanners and cutters. Bull trade was steady at yesterday's decline. Bologna hulls were taken more readily limn the fat sorts." How tunny murders is tho Beef Trust guilty of lu Chicago? How many Innocent people nro killed every year by tuberculosis and cancer? business it is to watch during the ses sion of the Legislature each day's batch of now bills, and whenever n bill affecting patent medicines shows its head to telegraph tho bill, ver batim, to headquarters. There some scores of printed copies of tho bill nro made, nnd a copy is sent to every member of tho association. Thereupon each manufacturer looks up tho list of papers in the threatened Stato with which he has tho contracts described above. And to each newspaper ho 'sends n peremptory telegram calling tho publisher's nttcntlon to tho obliga tions of his contract, and commanding htm to go to work to defeat tho nntl-patent-mcdlclno bill. In practice, this organisation works with smooth per fection nnd well-oiled accuracy to de feat tho public health legislation which is Introduced by boards of health In over a score of States every yenr. Watch the dally newspapers when ever a trust Is being assailed and see how tho advertising columns are load ed with glaring calls to part'uko of wonderful delicacies. press cannot hide the truth from the people. Little by little they will learn the facts, and when they do wake up, you will hear an explosion. Why not let the Beef Trust name tho government beef inspector nt Chicago? What other isdltlcul associations be sides tho Harrison Democracy docs tho Beef Trust own lit Chicago? Tho Beef Trust absolutely controls legislation In Illinois. It does as It pleases with tho people. Tho Siiierlor Court clerk's offlco seems to have been as sung a harbor for grafting operations ns tiny we have heard of so far, und present develop ments would mako it appear that no opportunities there have been over looked. No ono mnn should bo mado a scapegoat In this Investigation. Ev erybody who had anything to do with this particular system of graft should be brought to Justice nnd punished. different ways will prove u blessing to the pooplo. It Is such men as Mr. Wheeler that hulld up great communi ties mid they should be encouraged In stead of having stumbling blocks placed in their way. The Standard Oil Trust does not sell cancer or tuberculosis to tho ico pie. But tho Newspaper Trust finds abundant space to dvoto to the Oil Trust but has not a lluo for tho Beef Trust. Why? Peoplo who think that they get good meat aro Invited to read the follow ing clipped from tho llvo stock report of tho Chicago Dally News, January 1), WOO: "Qualify of offerings was not good.

A few tnppy kinds have reached $0?J3 this week, but they nro ns scarce as tho proverbial hen's tooth." We do not see any quotations in I lie dailies on trlehlun hogs, Tho public officials who aro con trolled by tho Beef Trust will he known before long. All tho rotten old Bcof Trust lobby Ists, consisting of crooked lawyers, castoff politicians and scarecrow states men, are getting ready. But when tho Why Is not tho Illinois Anti-Trust law strictly enforced against tho real trusts? The law Is upon tho statute books and Is rigidly lived up to as against small and honest corporations which are obliged to mako affidavit oneo a year and scud the sumo with ono dol lar to Springfield to prove that they tire not III a trust. A Trust has no more standing lu law lu Illinois than n Burglar. Both exist lu violation of the law and both are felons In tho eyes of the law. There will be some music over tho Beef Trust when the next Illinois Leg islature meets. Tho Beet Trust controls tho food supply of tho American people. Tho Beef Trust is bringing on u revolution. What object can tbo members of the Beef Trust have hi opposing tho Illi nois pure food laws nnd wanting tlioui amended V Why Is Illinois afraid to tacklo tho Beef Trust?

Tho Health Department, after proving that tons of tuberculosis are dumped on tho market every week, has discharged Its Inspectors! Tho Beef Trust saturates Chicago with stenches from Its rendering es tablishments nud rIuo factories.
