T f THE -WASHINGTON TIMES,- FRID At, AUGUST 2, 1913. JB e MEAT PRICES NOW HIGHEST KNOWN IN LOCAL MARKET Sensational Advance This Weelc Cannot Be Explain . ed By Retailers. Whatever"-may be the development! in the month of August In' political - matters, this month has ushered In a state of affairs on the meat market that will adept the American people In another but equally as vital way. The beef market has Jumped again about 10 per cent. So has the veal market Bo has the pork market. In fact, lamb ana poultry are the only fresh meats that have not taken an ascension Within tho last couple of days. The rise in tho price of boef Is of course the most sensational feature. Already the highest on record, tho Jump In beef prices marks the greatest surprise that local dealers have ex fiorlenced In many a year. It was free y predicted last month that beef would drop a deduction based on the fact that the demand Is not half as great as It was and the assumption that the supply would remain steady. No one attempts "to explain what has hap pened to cause such a reversal of what was expected, and all the retailors nave to say Is that "something Is . bound to happen." 'Prices All Go Up. Beef has risen $2.50 a hundred on the 'Wholesale' market. The beat grade of cattle Is rjow bringing 14c and Ui cents. The result on the retail market is that prlmo roast, quoted lost week at 20 "to 25 'cents, Is In demand at 25 and 28 cents; sirloin steaks that brought 25 cents last week sell for 30 cents today; porter house roast that was 25 cents last week Is 30 cents now; round steak, quoted at 22 cents last week, Is now worth 25 cents. And so on through all tile beef products. Pork Is also on the boom, and while prices keep going up in this line, sales are falling Oft rapidly. A prominent pork retailer said today that ho was not 'Belling half as much pork now as he did this time last year when prices were more reasonable. Pork chops that were .worth 20 cents last week are now bring ing 23 and 25 cents. Ham has risen one cent,-sbacon three or four cents, and lard one cent. The veal market shows a slight in crease In nearly all parts, though not as great as pork and beef. No change of importance is noted in the vegetable or poultry market, the latter having dropped a cent or two. List of Average Prices.

The report Is replete, however, with reference to the manner In which the corporation has "stifled1 competi tion," exerted a "monopoly," and con trolled prices because of the advantages possessed by the Steel trust through Its ownership of railroads and practically all of the ore deposits In the country. In concluding a chapter devoted to tho famous "Gary dlnnors," the report wivs In this connection: "Accepting this Gary dinner of Jan uary, 1911. as fairly typical of the rest and the things said and done there as fairly representative of the things said and done at others, we think the con clusion Is irresistible that the Gary din ners wero instituted as a means of con veying to tho entire steel and Iron In dustry Information ns to what tho at titude of the ttnlti States Seel Cor "i was upon the question of out put and prices, and ot Impressing upon all -engaged in the Industry that It was the part of wisdom and prudence to gov ern themselves accordingly. Territory Divided. "We further believe that by this means prices were maintained, output restrict ed, territory divided, competition stifled and trado restrained, just as certainly, Just as effectively, and Just as unlaw fully as had been done under tho dis carded pooling agreements of former years." The drastic remedial legislation pro posed, which would apply to all cor porations engaged in interstate com merce, is embraced In three bills. Tho first bill Is to amend the Sher man law by more clearly defining what Is meant by restraint of trade. The bill would place the burden of proof on the defendant corporation and not the Government when a corporation Is charged with unreasonable restraint of trade. The report recommends that the com mlaslon'T of corporations shall be re quired to report to Congress as well as to tho President. During the steel hear ings Commissioner Herbert Knox Smith declined to give to tho Congressional committee much of the Information n his possession regarding the ateel trust. Explaratory of the proposed amend, ment to the Sherman law, giving in jured Individuals redress against illegal combinations, the majority report says: "Tho Attorney General and his subord inates should net be permitted to ex erciso an absolute discretion as to the institution of proceedings under tho Sherman anti-trust law, prohibiting combinations In restraint of trade. Tho parties injuriously affected by such combinations should have access to the courts nnd the benefit of udequate and sufficient remedies for wrongs JnfllcteJ by such combinations." Criticises 1907 Acts. Tho report is highly critical of the absorption of the Tennessee Coal and Iron Company during the 1907 pantc by the Morgan syndicate. The real pur pose of tho absorption, says the report, was. to enable the Steel trust to gain a foothold In the Birmingham ore district, after It find obtained possession of 85 or fK) per cent of the ores In tho Lake Su perior resrion, or the Mesabl and Ver million ranges. s Referring to tho hurried conference between President Roosevelt and Messrs. Gnry and Frick, who took n special troln to Washington for that conference, tho report says: "The corporation had no holdings In the entire Southern region. It was the ore and coal the Steel corporation needed and was after, and yet.. In their conference wltnsthe ' Presiden Wthe real-transaction was never mentioned and after his Interview with Messrs. Gary and Frick, as evidenced by C61 onel Roosevelt's statement before tho committee, ho was still under thclm presslon that the Steel corporation had bought somo plants' In the Bir mingham district. it is surprising the steel corpora tion's rapid and extended control over natural resources ha'd up to this time entirely escaped the President's at tention. Any Investigation, however casual, would have revealed It." Committee's Sarcasm. Referring to the oft-told story of how the Morpan syndicate covered the loans on T. C. & I. Btock during the pantc, the committee says, with evl dentsarcasm: "How a pantc which had persistent ly resisted the combined efforts of the Federal Government and John D. Rockefeller, and J. P. Morgan & Co., and remained in unabated fury after Morgan and Rockefeller had turned loose $60,000,000 and the Federal Treasury $25,000,000, should suddenly be stilled bv this manipulation of Grant B. Schley's loans has not been explained either by Mr. Roosevelt or anv other witness. "Yet it Is urgently "maintained that the panic continued prior to this magical scood of securities, and that the Instant the Steel Corporation acquired the Ten nessee Coal and Iron Company's stock It subsided Instantly and permanently." The report devotes much space to the formation by Morgan of the National Tube Company and the consequent con trol of 90 per cent of the tubing busi ness; to the mannerIn which Carnegie forced the Morgan -syndicate to pay an excess price In order to get Carnegie out of the way as a competitor, and to the gradual upbuilding of the Steel Cor poration by the absorption of competi tors here and therountll today the Uni ted States Steel Corporation Is declared absolutely dominant In the ore fields and in the production of the finished product. The bill provides further that any in terstate corporation controlling SO per cent of the output or sale of any com modity handled In interstate commerce Is guilty, on prima facie evidence, of unreasonable restraint. Mr. Littleton's dlssont Is predicated nartteiilarlv on these two sections of Uhe proposed anti-trust bill. AllUvllB. n.un.i.1 t.wi.w...w.. -...... In the bill is that granting to the In jured individual the right to go Into court and sue for Injunction or damages any corporation alleged to be using op pressive methods in competition with such Individual. Under the existing law only the Departmen. of Justice may pro ceed against a corporation In behalf of the Injured Individual or public. The sovereign States are also glyen power to Intervene in suits brought against corporations by the Department of Justice. A second bill proposed by the majority steel Investlgatdrs is designed to end tho interlocking system of directorates among Industrial corporations and among railroads and Industrial corpora tions. The report asserts that: "One or more of the directors of the Steel Corporation are also directors in terminal, steamship, express, and tele graph companies having a total capital ization of $1,271,778,890; In Industrial cor porations with a combined capitalization of $2,803,503J348, and In banks and trust companies having a capital, surplus, and undivided profits aggregating $3,314, 811.178. "Of the $18,000,000,000 invested in rail ways of the United States the directors of the Steel Corporation have a voice In thn dlrpctnrnteH- or net na executive nf- 1 fleers of railroad companies with a total capitalization and bonded indebtedness Of $10,305,771,833." The Democrats propose as a remedy for this condition a bill amending the Interstate commerce laws by providing that no person who is an employe, of ficer, or director of a corporation en gaged In mining or in selling coal, or In manufacturing structural steel, cars, or locomotives shall act as a director or Sther officer of any railroad which con ucts an Interstate commerce business. A third bill seeks to accomplish the absolute divorcement of Industrial cor porations and common carriers by pro viding that after December 31, 1913, no company, firm, or corporation doing a mining or manufacturing business shall, own or control, directly or" Indirectly, any railroad or other line Qf transpor tation. V A second section of the bill would prohibit any firm or corporation own ing' the majority of the capital stock of anv transportation line to use such line In the Interstate shipment of any commodity manufactured or sold by the firm or corporation, Breaks Common Ownership. These two provisions, the . committee believes, will break up the common own ership of railroads and manufacturing concerns. On this point, the majority report says: "The holding of the stocks of trans portation linos and othor great concerns uuii.s un interstate ousiness oy Bucn companies should not be tolerated by the Federal Government when It has the authority to prevent It. "Thn United Htnten Bt1 rnmnMiLn utilizing to the utmost the opportunity ur tuiiBuiiuuiiun ana control anoraea by a .holding company, .and supported and austn.lnr.r1 hv 1t nlllAt, nnnnni.1 and Industrial, has secured an unques tioned and absoluto domlnanco over the prouueuon. manufacture, and transpor tation of Its product." The majority report disapproves of the rjlan of EVaeml tnmmnraiinn ami regulation of prices as advocate'd by Judge Gary, the executive head of the pice, corporation, ana as approved in the minority report. The majlrity'says: ' Such n cnnrrAl Aml.atnnlf,1iHi. M it. nature. Is beyond the power vested by the Constitution In the Federal Con- Kress, "The abuses mentioned in this report can In a great measure be remcedled OV frivtntr tn th nnarallnn. nf Ih. TTwII. ed States Steel Corporation and other .mo corporations me wiaest puDllcity, with the strict enforcement of laws spe cifically Inhibiting the employment of cunning dovlces by which an unfair ad vantage over competitors Is secured. The Roosevelt Affair. "The bureau of corporations possesses tho authority to thoroughly Investigate the Internal affairs of Industrial con cerns engaged In Interstate commerce. Had tho character of the United States Steel Corporation and the nature and extent of Its operations been known to the people and to the President at the time of the absorption of the Tennessee Coal and Iron Company, It is highly Improbable that the Chief Executive would In twenty minutes have given his consent to a merger fraught with In finite Injury to the steel industry and to tho public alike." "The capitalization of tho Steel Cor poration Is now $1,745,724,284.49," says tho report, "bht this sum, huge as It Is, in no degree determines Its actual power." A chapter Is devoted to the manner in which John D. Rockefeller Is alleged to have squeezed out tho unsophisticated Mcrrltt brothers, of Duluth, by "call ing" a loan on their ere holdings In the Mesabl range. These holdings now be long to tho Steel trust. The report goes exhaustively Into the transportation question showing how the Steel trust has an advantage over all competitors because of Its owner ship of various subsidiary transporta tion' lines, nnd because the riteel cor poration enJoyB preferential rates. The labor conditions In the steel in dustry are condemned and reports of I tile ueparimcnt ot uimracrce and La bor, as well as testimony before the Stanley committee, are quoted to show that on thosUverage the steel workers are underpaid and overworked, and live under unsatisfactory conditions, both moral and sanitary. Some of tho details 'regarding labor in the steel mills, the report says, "are too revolting for publication here' Thes reDort Btates the attitude of the Steel Corporation toward labor unions Is un- j deniaDiy inimical. Congressman Young of Michigan, a Republican, filed a dissenting report In which he disagrees both with the majority and minority of the Stanley committee on the questions of rem edial legislation, monopoly, and cer tain findings of fact. Mr. Young finds that the United States Steel Corporation when organ ized was greatly overcapitalized, but this has been remedied to a large ox tent. The Interstate Commerce Commis sion and various State railroad com missions, he asserts, have sufficient power to divorce railroads and in dustrial corporations, without addi tional lawmaking. He gives Judge Gary credit for bringing to an end the plate and structural steel agreements. The main purpose of the Gary dinners, Mr. Young finds, was to create friendly relations ampnsr steel men and avoid destructive trade wars. Mr. Young says the Steel Corporation controls about one-half of the iron ore In the Lake Superior district, and not to exceed one-half or tne available ore I in the Birmingham district. Its acqti'M- tlon of raw materials, ho declares, in direct contradiction to tho Stanley views, nas not Kept pace witn us manu facturing achievements or capacity. The Young report also says the ten dency of steel prices since the formation of the Steel Corporation has been down ward. Absolves Roosevelt. The Michigan Republican devotes con stderablo space to the Tennessee Coal and Iron deal, absolving President Roosevelt and all others Interested from Improper motives. In this connection Mr. Young says: "There is not the slightest evidence that there was any attempt by the United States Steel Corporation, or J. P. Morgan & Co., or anyone else, to de press Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company stock In the market, or to em barrass its owners, or Moore & Schley, so as to buy the stock cheap. "On the contrary, the evidence shows conclusively that all of the business Interests In New York city were work ing unselfishly and patriotically to stem the tide of the panic and financial dis aster that was sweeping over tho coun- try. ''The failure of Moore & Schley at the time would probably have resulted In many other failures, and In greatly aggravating the panic and spreading loss and suffering among millions of our people. "Moore & Schley would probably have failed but for the relief offered by the sale of the Tennessee, Coal, Iron and Railroad Company stock. "Messrs. Frick and Cary made frank and truthful statements to President Roosevelt of the material facts of the case. Patriotic Motives. "The steps taken by President Roose velt In the matter, were Inspired by patriotic motives. They gave the United States Steel Corporation no ad ditional rights and granted .them no Immunity frbm civil or criminal pros ftcutlon, should It later appear that they had In any way violated the law. "The United States Steel Corporation was not over-anxious to buy the stock of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Rail road Company. Those who engineered the sale on the part of the Tennessee, Coal, Iron and Railroad Company de manded and obtained the agreement that all the stockholders should have the option to sell at the same .price. All the stockhoders availed themselves of the option, showing that they thought the price reasonable. Full value was paid for the stock and It has not so far proven a very profitable purchase. "Its purchase did not give theUnlted States Steel Corporation, through tho ownership of raw materials, or other wise, a monopoly ot the Iron and steel buslncss of the whole, or any portion 01 tne south." , , Steel Report Is Basis Of Union Attempt to Organize" Workers I On thn heels nf tha fltnnlnv tifl.enm mlttee'a report attacking the revolting! t-'onuiuons unacr wnicn they say me underpaid, overworked employes of the Steel trust toll, the American Federa tion of Labor today Isucd a call to arms to these workers (o organize themselves Into unions.
