Tho attorney for tho biggest Chicago bad meat factory has written tho Ken tucky authorities that tho concern will keep Its poisoned sausages out of that state. How about tho other state? Tho Milk Fed Press will got It In tho neck when tho Legislature Investi gates tho Beef Trust. Some vory un wholesoino truths will como out In that Inquiry. Charles Weruo will havo no trouble lu being re-elected Alderman of tho Twenty-third Ward. Tho peoplo aro proud of tho flue record ho has made. Tho Health Department's bullottn, calling tho attention of tho peoplo to tho dangers lurking In lumpy jaw beef and to tho fact that It causes appendi citis, tuberculosis nnd cancer, was Ig nored by tho dally press, Tho Beef Trust is doing nioro to bring on a revolution lu this country than all other forces combined. Tho Trust Press, which does Its bidding, Is helping matters along. The Third Ward Republican Club, represented by Its executive committee, recently passed a resolution Indorsing Governor Deneen and pledging his ad ministration the club's support THE PEOPLE DEMAND IT. Illinois Legislature Must Investigate the Beef Trust and Stop the Sale of Diseased Meat. Chicago Is the Home and Head quarters of This Awful Trust. Health of the People Is at Stake and the Legislators Must Do Their Duty. An luvcdlirntlon of the Beef Trut by the Illinois Legislature Is demand ed by tho people. Cancer, tuberculosis, appendicitis nnd other dreadful dNeasw caused by the eating of diseased meat are spread ing. Tho now government law doe not provide for the luwctlou of meat con sumed lu Chicago and Illinois. Now Chicago Is the homo mid headquarters of tho Beef Trust. Hero are dumped and distributed all the rotten, lumpy Jaw and cancerous cattle. What protection havo tho people of this State from receiving unwhole some, disease-spreading food? With the exception of a handful of Chicago health inspectors, who con demn between bO.000 and ,-,00,000 ismuds of rotten meat every week, tlwy have none. Tho Illinois legislature will convene within a mouth uud there is tho peo ple's only hoic. The legislators must protect tho poo plo who elected them to look after their Interests. Their duty Is to In vestigate tho Beef Trust aud stop tho sale of diseased meat. Cancer, Tuberculosis, Appendicitis, Three of tho most fatal diseases that millet tlw huniau race aro principally caused by tho eating of bad meat. Will tho Illinois Legislature bo afraid to attack this awful trust or will It do Its duty nnd eoiuo to tho rescue of tho people? Tho Beef Trust must bo Investi gated and tho sale of diseased moat stopped'. The spirits of thousands of poor boya who went out to fight for the United Btatee In tbe Bpanleh-Amerl-can war, muet bover over the fortunes of tbo Bff Trust In a demand for vengeance These thousands were killed by the "embalmed hear of the Beef Traat and by tlw poisons used In the makeup of their Beef Trust rations. Neither the bulleta of the Bnantarda or the terrors of the Cuban climate did any havoc to the American soldier, poor boy, at all comparable with the damage done by the frightful embalm ed food of the Beef Trust The young fellows who offered their lives to the American government did nt far a moment Imagine that the country for which they wen fighting would pennlt a Beet Treat to rarmwo theui with poisoned ratlona. But It did. The aoldlera treated their country and ate the poison. The result waa death, dlaeaaa, broken constitutions for thousands. These are facts which tb war rec ords will corroborate. One hundred and sixteen articles pro duced by the Boot Trust In Chicago havo boon examined and condemned by the honest pure food commissioner of the State of North Dakota. Rvery one of them was condemned because it contained a poison and was therefore detrimental to the public health. Lack of space nlono prohibits us from print ing tho list and the names of the houses shipping the stuff. The Beef Trust saturates Chicago with stenches from Its rendering es tablishments and glue factories. It robs the people of Chicago through Its control of the price of the food they eat aud the leather they wear. Food Inspector Murray, lu a report to Dr. Charles J, Wbnlen, city health commissioner, gives facts nnd figures In regard to seizures of bad food dur ing his flvo months of work. Murray soys bo dostroyod 5,000,000 pounds of Impure food, aud ho declares ho would have destroyed 20,000,000 pounds more If be had boon supplied WHOLE NUMBER 895. with more Inspectors nnd had been let alone. Ho declares Chicago is tho dumping place for bad food lu tho Mis sissippi valley. Aud tho Beef Trust laughs. The American people must put an end to the Beef Trust or suffer the consequences of had food. ,Tho Beef Trust laughs nt tho now Government meat Inw, but will It snicker at an Investigation by tho Illi nois Legislature? An Investigation of tho Beef Trust by tho Illinois legislature Is what tho people demand. Some of the fellows who aro ad vertising cnttlo cars, electric cars and other wonderful Improvements aud who offer tho stock of samo for salo at fabulously low figures, should bo looked after by tbo police. There aro too many of them nt largo lu Chicago to-day. Tho Investigation or tlio Beef Trust by the next Legislature will mako some of tho big packers squirm. Tliero wore no deaths from appoudl. cltls recorded lu tho United States census of 1S0O. Over 5,000 deaths from appendicitis wero recorded in the United States census of 1000. The Beef Trust Is responsible for this dis ease. Tho London Lancet says that boric ncld used In preserving meat causes tho trouble. Tho Beef Trust lias got things down pretty lino when it can bring tho chil dren from n public school to look at tbo Mights lu its awful plants. Andrew J, Ryan has won nn envia ble record ns a public oillclal and ns a lawyer. Ho Is held lu tbo highest esteem by tho bench nnd bar of Cook County aud Is a man whom tho peoplo have coutldoiico lu. Tho Beef Trust can go on now soil ing diseased meat to the people, but the day Is coming whou this outrage wlU bo stopped. Clayton E, Crafts ranks ns ono of Chicago's ablest, most popular and brilliant lawyers. Tho Beef Trust is flooding the coun try with advertisements telling haw much It likes tho United States In spection. Tho Beef Trust always did love United States Inspection, because it wns owing to United States innpoe tlon and tho absence of other Inspec tion that It was ablo to work up a rep utation that has startled tho world with horrors. In Senator Albert J. Hopkins Illinois has a representative lu tho United Stntes Senate whom It can bo justly proud of. Ho Is an ablo man, fear less and straightforward, and his brll limit record speaks for Itsolf, Governor Deneen has Issued a proc lamation declaring that tho question submitted nt tho Inst election for tho salo of tho lands belonging to tho Illi nois nnd Michigan canal from Jollot to Chicago had not received enough votes, Tho law provided that tho proposition should receive a majority of all tho votes cast, Tho peoplo domaud uu Investigation of tho Beef Trust by tho Illinois Lcgla lature.
