Tin day set fot- tlie celebration Is July l, lint iik-iiiImtk of the commit tii want It changed until October 0, as they believe July Ih too early In the Sl'.lSOII. In a speech at New York Oct IS, 1000, United Stntcs Senator Beverldge, of Indliiun, said: "Nearly everybody eats nicnt, and so Ions us everybody eats meat tho meat Industry should bo organized so that It cun servo all the people. Dut tho government of all tho people, whom the organized meat Industry serves, should mc that It deals justly by all the peo ple whom It serve. "And so, whllo tho government of nil the peoplo should not own the meat Industry that serves nil tho people, It should regulate the meat Industry that nerve all the people. When that busi ness becomes to great that It affects all tho peoplo It becomes not only a private business but a public business. Tho profits for Its owners aro no longer the sole consideration, but tho health of the peoplo is also a consideration." Congress should at anee ndd to the meat Inspection law ttiewt throe pro visions : 1 Packers should bo obliged tn tnr all tho expense attached to In spection. 2 Packers should bo obllge.1 ti print date of canning on tlw labels of nil canned gf.oils.

This prevents dls Tlmliiatlons In freight hurgeri mnong other thing. Th' 1'cderul grand Jury, nmong Its duties, lookH after violations f tho Interstate Commerce I.nws. A starving man who Hole $2 worth of Imcon from tho Beef Trust was sent to tho bridewell nnd committed Mil--!do U;euuse of his hhame. Tho Beef Tntst stolo $2,000,000 worth of wnter from Chicago nnd no olllclal thought any leas of It. Tho wnall jrroperty owner will bo taxed out of all ho pos.-eses If tho new charter Is adopted. Tho fakers who aro lioostlng the charter aro "working" tho dally papers. Hut It won't do. The people aro going to Ix-at this charter and don't you for get It Tho Hoof Trust is flooding tho coun try with advertisements telling bow much It likes tho United State In spection.

Tho new charter provides for fifty al dermen to hold ofllco for four years at KI.UOO per year. Vote It down. It will rejoice tin public to know that meat condemned because It In dis eased, Is "tanked," Htewed Into lard and placed on tho market If you favor prohibition, vote for the new city charter, Sept. 17. If you do not favor prohibition, voto against It. If you want to bo taxed to death, voto for tho new city charter Sept. 17. If you don't, voto against It. The ixtfiple of Chicago are not in fttvor of Sunday closing. Tho new charter should Ik defeated Sept. 17. Thero Is nothing good In It, and much that Is bad. The people of Chicago aro Just dy ing to give alilcrinaiile stougliton bot tles four-year term. Wuteli the voto on the new churter. The new charter Is thoroughly un American. It provides for tho elec tion of a legislative body for tho city for four years. Congressmen nud leg islators are elected for but two years. Thero Is greot graft in tho new char ter. Aro all diseased beef carcasses to bo hM to tho poor after this, Instead of being destroyed by city Inspectors? To adopt the new charter means tho establishment of nn unbreaknblo ring la tho City Council for four years, Illinois Is not ouiy tho headquarters of the Ileof Trust but tho peoplo of Illinois are Its principal victims. 1'ollco surveillance of tho White City, Chutes), Ktvorvlow 1'ark and a lot of other summer resorta would bo a pretty good Innovation this year. Tho courts found n way to send a starving Isoy who stole a ham from tho Ileef Trust to tho Bridewell, where ho committed suicide from shame. But the authorities never found n way to punish tho Beef Trust for stealing wn ter from tho people. Its Canned Goods, and Has Combatted Every Attempt to Make It Pay Costs of Inspection. Now it Has Raised the Price 6f the Food Products of the Country arid Its Assaults Upon the Health of Our Citizens Are Matters of Record. Congress should pass a law com pelling packers to print tlie date of the canning on the labels of all vanne! goods sold by thorn. The fact that the Beef Trust fought a proposed law to this effect last car, only goes to emphasize tho necessity that exists for one. According to all accounts the canned goods of the Beef Trust nre bad enough when eomparltlvely new, without un loading on the public canned goods that have Imvii years In n warehouse. More than that, the government should coniMl the packers to pay all tlie expenses of meat lusiiectloii. The government should also Inopeut all meat In transit. Iutoly the Beef Trust has been branching out and gobbling up other lines of business. It controls tho meat business. It controls tho poultry trade. It controls tho egg market. It controls the hide market It controls the Iwot and shoo trade. And lately It has stepped Into the control of a largo part of tho vegetable market. In order that the inultl-iullllonnlrcs nt ItH head may thrive, It has raised the price of living upon the peoplo of tho United States. It Is the Beef Trust and tho Beef Trust alone that has nindo the cost of living as high us It Is. Tho Beef Trust buys cattle, swine and sheep on the boot for almost noth ing. If you wilt take tho troublo to look nt tho market reports of the dally papers you will see that the trust pays from $1.26 to $2 per 100 pounds for canning cows. This is a cent nud a quarter to two cento a pound. For very high grade moat tliey pay as high as five or six cents a pound. Tho trust utilizes every portion of tlie cattle, hoofs, horns, Intostluos, hide, hair and bones. It could afford to sell tho people neat at reasonable prices and uiako a big profit itself. But It Is too hoggish to do tins. It has the American public by tho throat nnd makes tho American public pay outrageous prices. Tho following from tho Chicago Dally Journal market report for June 11', 1007, Is a fair sample of what the Beef Trust pays for cattle, r 100 pounds: Prime fat steers $tl.5i)(i7il.80 Good to choice steers 0.0flff(M.40 Medium to good steers ri.00lRll.OO Common to medium steers.. !MT(ii".W Inferior killers 4.7.Vi?r,ir (!ood to choice imws -l.'Joff 11.00 Medium cows ...,. il.'.V'i&.'I.Mi Common to good cutters....

But do tho peoplo who have to pay exorbitant prices for fooil get good food? Let us look nt some of tho records of the Chicago Health Department for a reply: Tho following from tho Chicago Health Department Bulletin of Octo ber 2S, 1005, speaks for Itself: Tho city Inspectors nt tho Union Stock Yards condemned "FIVE CAT TLIJ FOUND IN THE COOLEBS, WITH A I'AUT OF THE EVIDENCE OF TUBEKCULOSIB TKIM.MED OUT, AFTEIt HAVING BEEN PASSED BY THE GOVEHNMENT INSl'ECTOUS." "They also coudemued and destroyed ,'!,00:i pounds of cut meats shipped from St. Louis nnd Kansas City, having passed government luspcctlrn nt thoso places." This shows the sort of government Inspection we have. If a few of tho governmental omis sions are rectified how many thous ands aro not? How many bonus; In Europe and America nro nt this moment bartering cuts of meat from tuberculosis cattle? Tho almvo report of tho Health Com missioner speaks of meat hanging In the coolers of trust bouses, with tuber cular tumors "trimmed out" ready to be cut Into steaks. Speaking of the it.03n.00n nounds of food condemned in 1005 by Chicago Health Department lns)ectors, Dr. C J. Whnlen, Health Commissioner, says In his annual report: , ., "EIGHT ri'It CENT OF THE MEATS WEBE CONDEMNED ON ACCOUNT OF TUBERCULOSIS." "Commenting upon this condition (continues Commissioner Whelan), 'American Medicine,' December 23, says : 'Ono stands nghnst at the crlinl unl cupidity which will Induce men to attempt to sell such dangerous foods to nn unsuspecting community. It Is now hi order to go n step further and find out who Is responsible for this moral obliquity. "'It Is well known that combina tions of tho larger meat dealers linvc existed In tho past to tho end of rais ing the price of food stuffs beyond the point to which healthy competition would reduce them. The outcry has always been In protest against the In creased cost ot living, but hero for tho first time nro tho combinations which co.?ro the food supply, broajt lir direct relation to public hcnltn. "'It Is high tlmo that thb tuntter bo taken out of tho class of nilnoi of fenses AND THE DEALERS THEM SELVES LOOKED UPON IN THE LIGHT OF PUBLIC DANGERS. Even in war, when all kinds of brutality an i-WBctioned. It Is tho height of dis honoreven murder to poison the water supply of a country. Is It any better to poison the food supply? It Is time that the public mind should develop a conscience In this direction.' " Speaking of Beef Trust tuberculosis read tlie following from the Health De partment Bulletin, November 4, 1005: "Too total amount of meats con demned during the period was 1,343,348 pounds. Of the principal causes of condemnation. 80 PER CENT WERE FOR TUBERCULOSIS, 12 por cent for actinomycosis lumpy Jawr-and 4 por cent for hog cholera." Health Department Bulletin, Dec. 0, 1005: "A total of 147,000 pounds of mcaU was condonined nnd destroyed (during tho past week) under tho su pervision of tho department Inspectors at tho Union Stock Yards. This In cludes 4,083 pounds of government-Inspected cnt meats shipped from peck ing houses In the West for Chicago city trade nnd canning." Health Department Bulletin, Novem ber II, 1000: "Although the condemnation and de struction of food supplies unlit fot; human consumption during Umj past three months since tho resumption ot Stock Yards Inspection August 7 ult, by order of the Commissioner huve reached Immense proportions, much uu fit food still reaches the market Only such animals and moats as show gross pathologic conditions, recognisable by tho nnked eye, are now condemned. Fa cilities for microscopic laboratory ex amination have not yet bceu restored. "Tho Union Stock Yards city Inspec tors coudemued and destroyed 30 parta of beef carcasses, 3 hogs and 0 cnttlo WHICH HAD BEEN PASSED BY THE GOVEHNMENT INSPECTORS. "Tlie total stock yards condemnations amounted to 170,808 pounds." "Parts of beef carcasses I" In other words It has been and Is the practice to cut out the cancers and tubercular tumors and let tho rest of the carcass go to tho people for food I And yet wo call ourselves civilized. Tho Beef Trust will And It hard to get a resting place when the peo ple of tills country rlte against It, as they surely will. The peoplo of the whole world nro crying for Its exter mination. An average of 50,000 pounds of dis eased meat Is condemned every week by Chicago Health Department Inspectors In butcher shops and grocery and de partment stores "Inside the Unlou loop." If this great amount of tubercular, cancerous and maggoty fnatcrlal can lie found by the lusiiectors and dostroyed "liisldo tho loop," a smnll territory iKuindod by tho river, Van Buren street, Wabash and Fifth nvenucs, how many million pounds nro sold to the public nud consumed In tho vast territory out sldo tho loop? This Is a very pertinent qwsstlon. That 50,000 pounds of diseased meat can escape stockyards Inspection every week- nud find Itself Into department nnd other stores "Inside the loop," hhould sulllco to cnll attention to the vast amount of poisonous food that es capes Inspection at the stockyards and Is sold outside the loop. Facts are tacts, and figures Rev &, The most atnaalng stupidity concelv- i able of any people with foreheads la that they should allow their supply of food to pass into the hands ot one speculative interest, says Charles Ed ward Russell In a powerful article written by blm in the Appeal to Rea son. You can understand how a care less community might tolerate a mo nopoly of some things, how It might endure to have its transportation, for instance, or Its electric light, control led by one ownership, for men can live without steeping cars or arc lamps; but that It should tolcrnto a monopoly of the prlmnl necessity of food is beyond comprehension nnd without precedent Even naked sav ages bavo uniformly been too wise for that, and tho only nation flint has over submitted to such a monstrous condition Is our own. From n thousand Illustrations of the Injuries wo nil suffer from this Idiotic arrangement let us cite one. There Is no way of communicating disease to tho human body surer than through Infected moat tissue. Some of tho worst nnd most destructive ba cilli that prey upon mankind aro com mon among the anlmnls ho cats for food. Cows have tuberculosis and spread vast quantities of it through the human population. It is so com mon among cows that the wise and the forewarned will use none but ster ilised milk. What is "hog cholera" among swine is merely typhoid fever in men. Trlcblnen in hogs poisons human beings. Both these diseases are common among swine. Worse than aU these, and mors deadly, Is another fact that is seldom commented upon because It is too ap palling to dwell much upon. What la called "lumpy Jaw" In cattle Is simply cancer. The germs of cancer are communicable. Many cattle have "lumpy jaw." Any animal " with "lumpy Jaw" is unfit for human food. This opens a Held that demands the Immediate attention of the govern ment Cancer is the most terrible of all diseases. After it has reached a certain stsge of development It is ab solutely Incurable. Its progress to that stage may he without the pa tlenfa knowledge or suspicion. Its advance beyond that stage cannot even bo checked. It slays its victims with the most horrible torture. In this country tho recent Increase of this most terrible of human af flictions has been something to alarm us' all. It waa once rare; it bow threatens to become common. In the Cincinnati hospital, In the year 1870 71, the number of cancerous patients was one in 087. In 1904 the number was one in 378. In 1870, when the total population of the city was 210, 230, the number of cancer cases re ported at all the institutions waa 42; In 1000, with a total population of 323,002, the number of cancer cases reported at all the institutions was 108, and in 1008, with about the same population, the number waa 267. I append the table that shows this as tonishing Increase. Here is a similar report from two well-known hospitals elsewhere: ROOSEVELT HOSPITAL, NEW YORK. Total No. Year. of patients.

Theso nro sample pngoi from tho dreadful records. The trend of medi cal Investigation has been toward the conclusion that the origin of tlie hu man cancer Infection is to bo found In meat. It Is no longer held to be possible that cancer or a tendency to cancer can be Inherited. The lufcc Hon Is duo always to nn active agent taken In somo way Into tho system. The ment of cattle allllcted with "lum py Jaw" would bo such an agent. There come to tho slaughter houses of tho trust, week by week, many cat tle ntlllcted with "lumpy Jaw." What becomes of them? I don't know; you don't know; no body knows outside of tho precincts of the slaughter houses. And yet thero can be no question to a man who desires to live that Is of greater Importnnco than this. The op erations of thoso slaughter houses are conducted behind closed doors. No outsider Is allowed to glimpse what goes on there. No representative of the public ever gets behind thatz-cur-tain. You can go thero and tie enter tained with a fake exhibition of fnko slaughtering conducted as n public spectacle. That amounts to nothing. The real work no ono ever sees but the etnplovcs. What becomes of the diseased cat tle? Theoretically they are burned and converted Into fertilizer. Who see tho burning? Who knows that It U done or how It Is done? Nobody out sldo of tho employes'. All we know Is that "lumpy law" Is cancer; that many cattlo havo "lumpy Jnw," that "lumpy Jnw" Is communicable and that cnncor frightfully Increases. Tho London Lancet, the leading medical Jourunl of Europe, sent a man to Chicago to Investigate, so far as he could, tho slaughtering processes ot thu trust houses. Ho roturnod with a reve lation that should havo called for gov ernment Investigation. He declared that the methods employed wore most unsanitary. That tho work was done in a hurried, careless, slipshod May; that thero was no tolorablo Inspection or sanitary supervision; that tho health of the world was menaced by tlicio conditions. To this, scathing Indict ment from a great medical authority no serious defense was ever made. Subsequently, , thero appeared In Jamestown, N. Y., a remarkable book. "The Dark Side ot the Beef Trust" apparently written by au oxport sup plementing the charges of the Lancet aiui enforcing them with such dotalls us could hardly have been supplied by anything but personal knowledge. The whole process of manufacture in the trust houses was followed with minute care and the charge was explicitly made that carelessnos relgued every where; that impure pruuueni were ha bitually sout out for consumption; that ment lit ouly for destruction was ha bitually worked up with spices and drugs to dlsgulso its taste and sold to the public. To this extraordinary array of spe cific assertions no answer was ewr made. Here, then, nre two witnesses that solemnly declare that tho conditions In tho trust slaughter houses aro exactly such as would allow ttio meat of "lumpy Jnw" cattle to bo sent out as food. Suppose that we take of the matter tho roost chsritablo view possible. Suppose wo assume that tlie tmst gen tlemen aro most scrupulous about all tho ways In which they inako money. Suppoio wo forget about tho soldiers polsospd by embalmed beef, tho games of gouge and robbery practiced by tlie trust refrigerator cur lines, tho mniilp ulatlou ot a thousand markets for profits, the tribute levied by this com bination upon all households lit tho country. Let us forget that they aro law-breakers and monoy-mad and as sumo ithat not one of them would touch ,a cent of questionable profits. Still this question stares us In the face: How do wo know what becomes of the "lumpy Jaw" cattle? now do the trust gentlemen know? Their employes are employed to make much money for tho trust gen tlomon. How do we know the ways in which tho money Is made? How do the trust gentlemen knowf Here Is a stream of the most terrible Infection passing dally within tew Inches of the nation's rood How do wo know that sufficient pre cautions aro taken to prevent contuml nation? How do the trust gentlemen knowr They Inform us thnt what goes OS behind tho walls of their plants Is their own affair; that Is, their bust ness; they will manage It as they sce nt Whose affair Is It then. If tho nation eats diseased meat, If we art poisoned by trichinae, If cancer In creases? Other countries nre not so dull nt. wo nro about these tlilnim. otht countries understand very well tho monstrous perils Involved In the meth ods of this monopoly, nnd. therefore, try to exclude American meats. To quiet their objections the United States Is supposed to keep nn Inspector UM)ii meat Intended for oxport and to place upon It mi olllclnl stump certify lug that It Is fit for food. If, then, these arc tho method In regard to exort beef, nliout which thero Is nominal Inspection, what do you supposo aro the methods about meat for' domestic consumption, on which there Is no Inspection nt nil? Why was tho Beef Trust allowed to go on year nfter year violating the low nnd no attempt mndo to prevent It? Why nre tho laws Inert against this criminal organization? Why Is a man sent to prison for Ave years for forg ing a five-dollar check nnd these moo go free for swindling a nation? Why do wo contribute our dollars year after year to swell unnecessary hoards? Why arc wo content to have our food prepared for us In secret under conditions thnt to any sane mlud cer tainly suggest fraud and treachery? Wo are not obliged to have these things if we do not want them. The remedies nro simple enough. As to tho "lumpy Jnw," tho tubercu losis nnd tho cnncor, put a stop to pri vate slaughtering. Let all the slaugh tering of food animals be done by the State In the light of day, without any of this dark lantern business, ou ran! terms for all. Thero are' very few private slaughter houses In Eugtund. Tho cities nnd towns run their slaugh ter bouses under medical Insiwction. But In England tho people do uot care to bo Kilsoucd In their meat And wo need not worry about the ob jection that publicly owned slaughter houses aro an invasion of the private rights of business. Whan It comes to life and death there are uo private righto of business. No man has a right to saved profits that be makes by sproadlug disease. We have gone too for on the road to public sanitation to turn back bcause some gentleman's profits are threatened. The State will not allow you to go around with small pox or to conceal scarlet fever In your house, although each may be strictly your own affair. Compared with can cor, smallpox nnd scarlet; fever aro nothing. If the State can take radical measures to stamp out cholera It can take radical measures to stamp out cancer, a million times worse than cholera. If It can provldo pest houses for public safety It can provide slaugh ter bouses for public safety. And Its duty In the one case Is at least as clear as In the other. - The Eagle's prediction that tho Reef Trust would raise tho price of food on the js-oplo has lieeu fulfilled. Tike action of the packers Is expected to urouso particularly thoso memliers of Congress who havo Insisted that tho packers should pay the cost of tho meat Inspection, for which Cougmis now appropriates .'1,000,000 annually. One of the arguments used against this proposal bus Utii tho nllegntion that the packers would nt onco shift the cost of tho Inspection to the cattlo raisers. Now thnt the packers propose to Mil ft tho loss from condemned mr imssch whllo ut tho same tlmo ,tboy profit by the advertisement of the gov ernment guaranty of the wiiolcffMne ness of their products tho proponents of tho plan to make them pay for tho government Inspection Insist they havo an argument. Senators Beverldge, of Indiana, and Calllnger, of New Hamp shire, havo already promised to renew tho light In the next Congress, Congress should ut once mid to tno meat Inspection law these three pro visions : 1 Packers should bo obliged to bear all (he expense attached to In spection, 2 Packers should bo obliged to print date of canning on thu labels of all canned goods, 3 All meat In transit should be In spected by tho government ' f rl?
