All Ptckini Outfits Niw at Yirit Mutt It Willi Off Map. MANY OF THEM REEKING, A Writer CuKHm Thttr Ceniitien with tht Fin Onit In many. Every slaughter house nntl packing plant ut the Stock Yards must be torn down before the public will have faith lu their mmltnry condition. They tnurt bo replaced by modern, clean, antiseptic nnd up-to-date abat toirs or something will break loose. The passage of a bill by Congress that In "satisfactory to the pucker" may bo all well enough lu Its way. Hut the pucker have lccii Baying nil nloug that they have been under gov ernment supervision nil .the time. Whut good has It ever done, then. Tho new bill gives mora "government nuiHMrvlRlon," but tho name sloppy old buildings. Tho Illinois legislature must act on this matter next winter. Illinois, where tho packing bouses are located, Is more .Interested than nil the other States. In .tho meantime, compare Chicago slaughter houses with those of Ger many. Hobert Huntor, tho well-known American author nnd socialist, has Just returned from Germany, where he made n thorough Inspection of tho nbattolr system. Ho says: "By tho sldo of Germany, America stands disgraced In the matter of laughter houses. Apolo gia for tho stock yards system pre tend tbut much of a disagreeable na ture Is Inevitable, os meat killing Is necessarily rather a' dirty business. Dut this contention is utterly untruo, as German experience shows. In Germany every municipality owns Its abattoir, where all. meat for snlo must bo killed. I found the slaughter houso at Frank fort enclosed In grounds of about ten acres, with trees and pleasant sur roundings. Cattle nnd pigs to tho num ber of about 2,000 were all spotlessly dean. There was mfmoro odor than at n tine stock show. "Every portion of tho buildings had concrcto floors, which nro wushed down twice u day with hot and cold witter. All the butchers' Instruments are ster ilised each day. Tho moat, ufter the ' animals nro killed, Is carefully hung up tiwuy from nil contact. All the em ployes were wearing clean clothes, with iqtotloss aprons. ' . "Compare tho genoral aspect with that of the Chicago stockyards, whom uteneh makes life In tho neighborhood almost Intolerable; whoso wooden floors nro seldom cleaned and are Inches deep In offal; where hams lie pn tho floor overran by rats, and where tho work men wear filthy clothes. "HUt moro Important still Is tho In spection at tho Frankfort abattoir. Each unlmal Is Inspected three times unco on Its entrance, onco after killing nnd once when It Is cut up. All tho tainted flesh Is Instantly cremated. Frankfort has ntno flrst-ruto veteri nary surgeons, with good rooms at tholr .Usposol for their work, an excellent ousultlng library and fifty Imqicctora under them capatjlo of diagnosing trich ina. Altogether, the municipal abat toir of Germany employ about 0,000 inspectors. Chicago, which kills for half tho world, employs tlfteen. "80 far as Inspection is concerned In Oermnny It Is quite posslblo to make It etllclent, slnco there are ' slaughter houses In every town and tho nbattolr system Is praetlcully self-supporting. The Inspection could bo done much more cheaply In Chicago, whoro the In dustry Is concentrated within 700 acres. Hut Inspection alono will not remedy the ovll uor will the present bill bring America anywhere near Germany tin regards heulth, becauso tho bill hurdly touches tho question of dirt. It will rtquire a much moro strlugent system to brldgo over the htigo gulf botweeu Frankfort and Chicago. "Imaglno the Beef Trust Insisting on concrete floors being washed twlco 11 day and demanding that all tho em ployes wear whlto aprons and Unit nil tho lustrnmcuts bo sterilized twlco a day! Such a reform In tho Chicago stockyards would require tho rebuild ing of tho entire Chicago plnnts, "Tho EnglUh uiothods are only bet ter than tho American because tho in spection Is more conscientious, hut there Is nn equal lock of system. Tho German nbattolrs show that a system Is perfectly posslblo under which hoaltli nnd cleanliness can ho preserved. Anglo-Saxons who boast that cleanliness If among their chief virtues prefer to at tholr food prepared under tho filthiest conditions rather than tako tho trouble to Introduce the abattoir sys-tern." Head the following, taken from the Bulletin of the Chicago Health Depart ment: "The enormous Increase of food con demnations Is due to the fact that there was no department Inflection at tbc Union Stockyards during tho 1000 period. A total of 2,827,032 pounds was condemned nnd destroyed by the department Inspectors at the "Yards'- In tho last six months. The Dccf Trust's uuclcan packing plants must be torn down. The Illinois Legislature must stop the Hoof Trust! Captain Eugcno It.

Inf Truit Civil tht Niw Govirnmint Act thi Merry Ha! lt! CANNER COWS STILL RULE. QvitatlMi frem Dally Papers Shew that tka Meant lull Still IllnlWI. The new Government meat law, so "mitlsfuetory" to tho packers, went Into effect July 1. From the Chicago Journal, which Is acknowledged to be the best authority among dully papers on stock yards re ports, we quote the following from Its last edition of July 2: Prime steers .".750O.1O Good to choice fi.2.1(U5.tlO Medium to good killers 4.70&r.2."i Common killers 4.00(4.00 Good to choice cows ,'l.86$t4.BO Medium cows .'I.OOffi&OS Common to good cutters..,. 2.3."1i2,0."

They are animals that have had tho evidences of cancer and tuberculosis cut out of them. What are "medium to good cauncrs)" They are poor, emaciated, tubercular, cancerous cattle that are pared up nnd canned for domestic nnd export trade. Talk about Federal "Inspection!" Hah! Tho market quotations given above show what tho junkers think of It. Now "Hologna bulls" are poor, cast off miserable male bovlnes that ono would not feed to valuable dogs. Under present Stock Yards conditions tho term Is n regular appellation, as witness tho following from the Dally News of July 2: Hulls were In good demand. This won particularly true of good hologfta. Bolognas of tho right class were salable at 13.15, while for prlmo bulls It was posslblo to secure as high as ,$4.50, though this was nn extreme price. Prices showed tho following raugo: Good cutting to fair beef cows, 2.403.20 Common to good canning cows 1.00(32.25 Hulls, common to choice. . . . 2.25SR10 Hulls, good to choice 4.10 4.00 Thanka to the Beef Trust methods, cancer numbered 1,191 victims in Chi cago In 1006, or 67 more than In 1004 an Increase of the rate per 10,000 of population of 2.08 per cent The Increase In deaths from cancer In Chicago In 1006 over the average for the decade ended In 1004 waa 10.1 per cent, and over the average rate of the decade ended In 1884 was 34.1 per cent! One of the most cunning and des perate deed of the Beef Trust was the defeat, by Beef Trust methods, nf the attempt of the secretary of agri culture to secure 135 additional meat Inspectors for Chicago. The secretary asked for 1135,000 to pay for 185 In spectors to Inspect meats going to Eu ropenot meats for Americans, for anything la good enough for us. The Congressional Committee, possibly un der Beef Trust hypnotic Influence, only appropriated 120,000. So the Euro pean are In almost aa great danger as ourselves. The pure food laws will, of coarse, be enforced against some poor little grocer. But against the Bert Trust. never I Tho Beef Trust hTsendlnir moner Intr. Germany to stir un strife nnd for.-.. the government to permit the Imports tion or its moats. If Mayor DunneTadmlnlsiratlon de stroyed over 3,000,000 pounds of can cerous and tuberculous meat In Ave J months, by the inspection work of . only eleven Inspectors, how many bll-' 110ns or pounds or cancer and tuber ' culoals were fed to the people during . the years that there was no city In J tpecttont ' Read tho following from tho rtullntln of tho Chicago Health Department : "inspectors at tho Union Stock Yards, condemned and destroyed 100 cattle, 303 hoes. 140 calves. 12 sheen, rutin pounds of cut moats a total of 148,501 pounds of meat. "Tho food lusnectors in tho loon ll. trlct condemned nud destroyed during the week four hogs, 0110 carcass of beef, 25 calves, four lambs mid 2,810 pouud- of cut meats; iiho 125 pounds of poultry." Tho Illinois Legislature must Inves tigate the Uecf Trust next winter. And It will. No matter what kind of bill passes Congress to regulate the meat Industry, Illinois owes It to herself to do some thing ,on her own account towards pro tecting the lives as well as tho health of her cltlscns. The Beef Trust will still bo In exist ence, no matter what Congress docs. The men who compose It will not have lost their sordid love of money. They will still bo willing to sacrifice the lives, the health nnd tho fortunes of their fellows In. tho Interest of their (Hickcts. Illinois must act and net drastically iiml thoroughly. A legislative Investigation will prob ably disclose n rottcner state of affairs than the public even dreams of now. Illinois can no longer be expected to rest content with Federal Inspection n ml Federal supervision after tho dis closures presented up to date. She must Investigate for herself and act for herself. The Legislature must get after the Beef Trust. All the plants at tho Stock Yards must como down. New buildings must tako their places. The old ones are so saturated with filth, disease and corruption that no matter what laws are passed, tho build ings themselves Will be a standing men ace to food. A complete new outfit Is necessary and everybody recognizes that fact. Tho Health Department furnishes Its weekly reports to the dally newspapers with great regularity and has dono so for years. The dally papers with won derful regularity bavo always care fully eliminated from the report all references to stock yards conditions bofore publishing tbo Mtue. The number of cattle afflicted with tuberculosis is said to bo very large, Tho report of tho Chicago Health De partment for tho week ending May 10 states that two cows suffering from tuberculosis were found among tho herds that supply Chicago with milk. President Roosevelt and tho members of Cougrcss first heard about tho Beef Trust horrors from tho Englo last No vcmber, nnd they have heard moro ev ery week slnco then. Tho following from tho Bulletin of tho Health Department for month of Mny: "Tho meat Inspectors at the stockyards condemned nud destroyed n total of 481,705 pounds of beef, pork, veal and mutton." Our grand juries nro frequently sprinkled with leading citizens drawn from tho packing Industry. Men who arc busily engaged In selling cancer and tuberculosis to their fellow-men nro fluo iieople to draw as Brand Jurors. Peoplo used to wonder where all tho tulKsrcuiosIs nud cancer enmo from. They wonder no longer. Tho Beef Trust exposures have shown them tho truth. No better mau could bo nominated for State Senator from tho Fifth Sen ntorliil District than Walter Clyde Jones. Ho deserves tho supiort of all who wish uu able, energetic representa tive. The Boef Trust nas caused a big raise In the price of shoes. The al-k-ged beef trust controls Incidentally the domestic hide market, which Con gress closed practically for the benefit of the beef trust by clapping a duty of 15 per cent ad valorem on foreign hides. The alleged beef trust, accord ing to Associated Press dispatches, now also controls the domestic tanning Industry. Hence the beef trust fixes now the cost of the leather, the raw material out of which shoes are made, and hence It controls both the prices of Hhoes In tho domestic market and lu the export shoo trade, built up at irreut expeuso by our shoe manufac turers. Furthermore, it Is common knowl edge that the domestic prlco of butter, eggs, butterlue, dressed poultry, the grains, fruits, vcgotablos, apples, pota toes and probably other foods is regu lated largoly by tho same trust of cor porations. This Is logical and unavoidable at present It Is due In part to special prlvilogos of lower rates In tho ship ping, private refrigerator Hues, tin inuiisi) grulu elovutors and cold-storage plants scattered at tho strategic points and In part, no doubt, to tho shcor biutnl force of unlimited millions of dollars; a power wielded by a few ner- tons whom society does not hold per Mji.nll.v responsible at present. ' TRACTION GRAFT. It Siimi to Be Very Good at the City Hall Just Niw. LAWYERS DO VERY WELL. The Settlement ef the Traetlen Question Will Make Seme ef Them Rich. The latest City Hall scandal Is the situated developed In connection with traction settlement. According to the Dully News, "Digesting" Chicago's street railway ordinance by ono of Mayor Dunne's traction experts has cost the city 100.31. This extraordinary chargo for serv ices Is one of several disclosed by an Investigation of whut It costs the city to maintain traction expert. Tho gen erosity to the legal advisers came out after Mayor Dunne had gono to the de fense of the four traction uttorncys who arc Interested In personal-Injury suits against the traction companies. Other startling charges appear on vouchers stored lu the City Comptroller's vaults, ruuglng from charges for Instructions for the Corporation Counsel to $50 for filing un optical lu tho Federal Court. Attorney J. G. Grossberg, prosecutor In Dr. M. F. Doty's department, sent in a voucher for services just before Christinas last year in which he charges tlie city 202.1i5 for conferences with "his honor, the Mayor, nnd Dr. Doty during twelve days lu ,Decembor," and f 100.31 for "digesting" the street rail way ordinances together with consulta tion with Dr. Doty and various police men. Henry M. Ashton, who is the Mayor's cxNrt on gas nud is usually in attend ance at the Council Local Transporta tion Committee meetings, also has se cured largo amounts from tho city treasury for like services. Mayor Dunne declined to discuss the per diem compensation of his assistants, but was surprised when told of the nature of some of tho charges for serv ices. "You will faavo to talk with tho Cor poration Counsel about that," said ho. "Mr. Lewis, I bellovc, signs the vouch ers." Tho Mayor also declared that he could see no wrong on tho part of Mr. Ashton or Mr. Grossberg If they con tinued to bring suits against tho street car companies. Tho tllvldlne lino. Im said, was where a traction attornoy Is ou n (-alary and supiiosed to devoto all bis time to tho city. In that case, ho said, ho did not believe tho nttornov should cngugo lu suits against tho com panies. "It Is different with attorneys who nro 011 a per diem basis," explained the Mayor. "I see no wrong If Mr. Gross, berg takes personal Injur' suits against tho street cur companies. I don't be- llevo ho will linvn nnv mlvnntmrn nvnr other attorneys in tho matter of evi dence whlcli is secured by the members of the police department." Tho records lu tho Comptroller's of fice show that Attorney Grossberg put lu 11 voucher, without itemizing It, for $300 for services to tbo city for the mouth of January last. Tliero was soma dispute about it and the Comptroller reriiKCil to Honor it. There are short hand notes ou tho fnco of tho minor which explain that tho amount could not bo paid on such a voucher. Later on, It developed, the Corporation Coun sel toon the case m baud and succeeded in getting it through tho way It was. Tho vouchers of Attorneys Aslifain nud Grossberg make charges ut tho rate of 25 a day for instructions from and conferences with tho Corporation Coun sel. Now that tho neonlo nro thoronshlv nroused, nothing can save tho Beef Trust. Tho following tuken from tho Chica go Tribune, July 5, speaks for Itself : "Chicago's wny of celebrating Inde pendence day wns prolonged torture for tho sick, thoso at homo and In tho hos pitals. "With vitality low and nerves ex hausted by pain and suffering, tho In valids wero subjected to the torture of tho nolso tho Incessant racket of the minor explosives, and the Intermittent "boom" of tho "cannon" crackers. "Prlvnto homes were helpless, but tho hospitals wero guarded day and night by patrolmen dotalled to keep tho nolso (loud as far as posslblo from tho hos pital precincts. This wus counted n cousldernblo protection, as was olso the fact that tho coolness of tho day per mitted tho nurses to keep tho windows generally down. "But for all that there wero many pa- tlonts whoso fover roso alarmingly from fretting at tbo all day bedlam. Sov- eral of these cases reached n rrltlrnl stage towards sundown, though all, so fur ns could lie ascertained early this morning, escaped without adding to tho rata 11 tics or the occasion." George Gillette Is ono of the brightest lawyers In Chicago. Ho would make an excellent Municipal Judgo. The splendid record of Justice Chas, II. Callahan makes him a strong candi date for Municipal Judge. Walter Clyde Jones' clean record ns n lawyer, a' political worker and a public-spirited citizen entitles hlra to tho Republican nomination for State Sena tor from the Fifth Senatorial District If Charles Wcrno Is nominated for Municipal Judge, which ho should be, be will be elected. Alderman Wcrno Is fiopular with all classes of men. Louis Levy, tho able nnd well known attorney, should bo nominated for Mu nicipal Judge. John C. Fctzcr has made a great rec ord 011 tho School Board and Mayor Dunne should not hesitate a moment to reappoint such an elUcleut public offi cial. Edwnrd Tlldcu bus made n clenn and good record on the School Board. In appointing Frank Wenter ns Civil Service Commission, Mayor Dunno has tho hearty thanks .of all Chlcagoans. Mr. Wcnter Is well qualified to hold such an Imiiortant position. Judge Orrln X. Carter has decided, to resign as chairman of the charter con vention nnd will present his resigna tion to the convention at n general meeting to Ik held In the council cham ber next week. William Lorliner always stands by his friends. iintirv M. Rlmtiiul Is one of tho ablest and best liked lawyers In Chicago. Ho would prove n strong cauuiuute ror Municipal Judge. Fourth of July Is passed. Tho day that brings Joy to the toughs, degen erates, hoodlums and scum of America has departed. The following Is tho re sult of this holiday that Is celebrated in such a horrlblo manner: Hy fireworks .'. 0 By cannon 1 By firearms 11 By explosives 7 Hy toy pistols 4 By runaway 1 Hy drowning S Injured 2,780 Hy fireworks 1,000 Hy ennuon 201 Hy firearms 303 Hy explosives 007 Hy toy pistols 304 By runaways 35 Fire loss $00,450 IN CHICAGO.

Tho Beef Trust plants nro being In vestigated dully hy "experts." Experts In tho lino of fooling tho people. Tho following is taken from tho Chronicle, Juno 27: "Berlin, Juno 20. Tho chairmen of tho various Prussian chambers of ag riculture mid analogous chambers of commerce held a conference recently nt Poien and adopted resolutions against American meats which wero published to-day. The resolutions refer to Presi dent Roosevelt's ofllclul messago to Con gross on conditions lu tho American meat industry mid nsk tho Federal Council to forbid tho Importation of foreign pickled meats and imrk alto gether and to order that prepared meats shall bo ImiMirtcd only when their wholesonieness can bo truitworthlly demonstrated, "A renort iiecomnniivlm? tho rraniu. tlons says that tho American meat scan- mil bus iiRiiiu thrown light on the ex tremely duiureroiM nrnctices of foroltm meat producers and declares that there fore tho Imperial government cannot any longer hesitate to forbid tho Impor tation of such unwholesome, disgusting meats.'

There Are Enenah Reliable Inititti- Hena, Hewever, If Peeale Will Patreniie Them. A stringent State law Is needed to regulate the establishment of banks. There are too many wild-cat financial schemes now In existence In Chicago. Not wishing to compete with the Mg banks, Irresponsible peoplo are starting up small banks In the ootlyiag districts of Chicago, from time to time. This practice has had disastrous results upon the business and financial Inter ests of the entire city. Many hundred small business men and traders have been ruined by this class of institu tions. The Pan American Is a shining example. This nefarious practice abould be stopped and the only way to stop It Is by municipal legislation. A provision ousht to be made In h city charter authorising the city under its ponce power to regulate the estab lishment of bsnks and creating la pursuance of this work a board for the examination of all proposed new banking concerns. Such a boartl should be given ample power to exam Ino Into the financial standing of the promoters of these Institutions, and none should be allowed to be licensed unless such as could show assets ample for the carrying on of their business, sufficient to cover the amount of their deposits, and sound and substantial enough to thoroughly protect their depositors. There can be no question as to the right and the Justice of the city to exercise such power under a property constructed charter provision. If the city has the right to regulate plumb ers, to regulate engineers, to regulate the elctrlcal business, to regulate pawn brokers and the scores of other busi ness enterprises and Industries over which It exercises unquestioned super vising powers, It certainly baa a per feet rlsht to reculate the hanklmr huai. nees, which Is of fsr more Importance than anything In the line of business in tlio city, because upon the legitimate and honest business methods ef these) Institutions depends the welfare of th entire city in Its business and commer cial lire, wnno methods or a contrary kind Indulged In by small, Irresponsible speculative concerns onlr numtta m failures that Involvo Injuriously the In terests or tno entire community. How often have wo seen It that th riititm of one of these little banks, started upon insecure and Irresponsible founda tions, and boomed by fraudulent and false representations, have draamd down to ruin hundreds of good, hard working, thrifty nnd deserving citizens. The licenses Issued by the examin ing board, which, of course, should h composed of responsible citizens and iidio unanciora, suouni bo or a charac ter that would be absolutely prohibi tive of all schemes and nroteota for th establishment of phony concerne of this Kina. This would be welcomed br all sound nnd responsible banking houses, wnetner private or national.
