Full Dress Suits Nw RniMIm 2333H :zWi: SUPREME COURT DEFIED The Beef Trust defies the Supreme Court of tho United States every duy of Hi existence. It defies nnd violates the permanent Injunction granted against It by the highest court of the country Jutiuary 80, 1005. And such Is Its power for harm, that no olllclal can bo found who will stand up for what tho United States Supreme Court decreed on behalf of tho people. Tho Uoof Trust continues Its exist ence as n combination In restraint of trado and commerce. It continues to fix nnd to maintain throughout tho country n uniform nnd exorbitant price for meat In defianco of tho mandnto of tho highest court In tho land. Tho temporary Injunction Issued by Judge Peter 8. Grosscun May 20. 1002, against tho Beef Trust was wade per manent by tho United States Supreme Court In n decision nnuouneed Jnnu nry .10, 100.". Tho decision establishes these iwliits: Trnlllc In'llve stock transported from State to State Is Interstate commerce nnd persons engaged In buying nnd selling such Uvo stock are engaged In Interstate commerce. Tho combination between dealers to suppress nil competition In tho pur chase of llvo stock Is an unlawful re straint of trade. The combination between dealers to fix and maintain a uniform price In tho snlo of meat throughout the coun try Is an unlawful restraint of trade. Tho combination of dealers to ob tain preferential railroad rates, Is an unlawful. restraint of trade. All combinations suppressing compe tition between Independent dealers fall under the prohibition of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Arthur Meeker, treasurer and gen eral manager for Armour & Co.. who was indicted In tho United States Court, together with other members of the alleged Beef Trust for conspir acy, In 1005, and escaped on a techni cality, was on the venire of tho Cook County grand Jury for January, 1008, but on account of luunto modesty caused by a soro foot was unable to servo this time, lie ecrtnluly would bo n Good man to Investigate The Milk Trust ; Gamblers' Trust ; Ice Trust, or any other trust.

The jieoplo will wake up to the situa tion hereabouts some day and then there will lie something doing. The following Individuals were In dicted by the Federal grand Jury In HKKi for conspiracy In conspiring to re strain commerce ami trade by monopo lizing tho meat 'product and for vio lating the Sherman Anti-Trust law: Of Armour & Co. J. Ogdeu Armour, president, Chicago: Charles W. Ar mour, Kansas City, president of the Armour Packing Company; Thomas .1. Connors. siiierlntendent. Chicago; Samuel A. Mcltolierts, assistant treas urer. Chicago; Arthur Meeker, general manager, Chicago; Patrick A. Valen tine, treasurer, Chicago. Of Swift & Co. Lawrence A. Car ton, treasurer, Chicago; Arthur I'. Evans, speclnl counsel, Chicago; I). K. Hartwell, secretary, Chicago; II. c. McMuuus, special counsel, Chicago; I.ouls F., Edward !'.. and Charles II. Swift, president, vice-president, and director, respectively, Chicago; A. II. Vecder, general counsel, Chicago. Of the Fairbanks Canning Company I.Mward Morrk vice-president, Chi cago; Ira A. MoirN, secretary, Chi cago. Of the Cucliiliy Packing Company Kdtvuid A. Cudahy, vice-president and general manager, Omaha. Corporations Indicted; Armour & Co., of Illinois; Annour'Paeaiiig Com pany, organized uuiler tho laws of New Jersey; Swift & Co.. Fairbanks Can ning Company, and the Cudahy Pack ing Company. Armour, Meeker nnd others Indicted with them all escaped trial and proba ble conviction by the ruling of n Judgo that they were entitled to Immunity be causo they had furnished evidence against themselves under compulsion sultlclciit to convict, although lm held that the corporations Indicted were not entitled to immunity and must stand trial. Hut the opinion of the eopo with regard to these men has never changed, and the Indignation of the American public from President Itoosevelt down has liccn frequently voiced, and the feeling Is growing stronger and strong er In the matter. And tho Supreme Court of tho United Statea decided March 11!, 11)00, that trusts nud ntllcers of trusts could ho comjK'llcd to furnish evldcnco against themselves and could be fined and Im prisoned on such testimony. Notwithstanding these facts tho Jury commission takes some of these men In older to till up Cook County grand Juries with "leading citizens." Hero are some facts to bear this statement out: Arthur Sleeker, manager for Armour & Company, has been drawn ns a mem ber of tho January body. Every grand Jury for months back has been well filled up with representa tives of the stock yards Interests. James W. Smlthson, purchasing agent for Armour & Company,, wiih on tho venlro for the October grand Jury. Among tho Stockyards pcoplo drnwu upon tho September Grnud Jury were : Wilbur L. Irwlu, superintendent, Union Stock Yards. J. J. Carey, innungvr for Nelson Mor ris & Company, Union Stock Yards. Armour & Company had no men tho July Grand Jury so far as can bo ascertained. Swift & Coinpauy, boweyei, wero well represented. jMtfmMi.ii.. Re-elected. Among the Stock Yards people serv lug as Grand Jurors on the July Grand Jury were the following: Thomas L. Smith, foreman for Swift & Company, Union Stock Yards. James E. Turner, clerk, Swift & Company, Union Stock Yards. Everett L. Vnu Meter, live stock salesman, Union Stock Yards. TIm! following Stock Yards repre sentatives were on tho Juno Grand Jury: L. D. Cmmbaugh, head cashier Ar mour & Company, Union Stock Yards. W. J. Ifciucll, manager Swift & Com pany, Union Stock Yards. Nllcholas Kllburg, telegraph oper tor, Armour & Company, Union Stock Yards. Martin Ruddy, live stock commis sion, Union Stock Yards. . William Sperry, live stock com mission, Uulon Stock Yards. Arthur Meeker, manager for Armour A; Company, was on the venlro of tho January grand Jury, but through lu nate modesty caused by an alleged sore loot he was unable to serve this time. Should he bo called on a grand Jury again, the other members of that lusly should take advantage of the cir cumstances to ask Mr. Meeker all about The Uecf Trust, and why It should not bo ludleted for vlolntlng tho trust laws of Illinois; Tho fixing of assessments so that Armour & Company and Swift & Com pany escape paying their Just shnro of iwrsonal property taxes; The withdrawal of city Inspectors from the stock yards, leaving tho peo ple of Chicago without udeqnate pro tection to their health ; The relations of Armour & Company with tho Health Department of the Harrison aud Dunne administrations. .Mr. Meeker, who Is a nice gentleman, will undoubtedly tell his brother Jurors all thnt he kuows about theso subjects, or glvo them a tip as to who cau give them better aud more accurate Infor mation. So far as tlio Reef Trust Is con corned, the grand Jury can get a lot of Information already collected and relln ble. by applying ut the government building, We can understand how tho Beef Trust controls local conditions In Chi cago. Everybody Is beginning to un derstand that. Hut how tho Beef Trust can continue to defy the United Stntes Supremo Court In view of Its lieriiiniient Injunction against It. grant ed by thnt tribunal Jnuunry 00, 1005, Is hard to understand. Tho fnlluro of the Government to proceed against tho Beef Trust crimi nally under tho Supreme Court deci sion of March HI. mod, tho open defl auco by tho Beef Trust of the United States Supreme Court and tho perma nent Injunction granted against this awful trust by tho Supremo tribunal January 80, 1005; tho daring viola tions of tho Anti-Trust I.nw by tho Beef Trust nil theso nnd moro will Ik great questions discussed by tho pcoplo In tho campaign of 1008. Tho Beef Trust must go to Jail. Nothing loss will satisfy the people. Teoplo ore commencing, to seo why so many Beef Trust men aro put on tho county grand Jury. l'IMiS CURED IX 0 TO 14 DAYS, PAW) OINTMKNT U gunranteed to cure nny cuse of Itclilnir, Illlnil, Weeding or Pro trailing Piles In 6 to H day or money refunded.
