LOS ANGELES PROTESTS
AGAINST MEAT TRUST
(Continued from Put One>
ul scandals have come to light involv
ing iilthy conditions and alleged whole
sale violations of the pure food laws,
the beef trust is believed to be without
a legal leg to stand on.
Reports from Washington today In
dicate that the voice of the American
people, who, in the last forty-eight
hours, have arisen en masse to pro
test against the exorbitant "get-rich
quick" prices of meat and edibles, has
in this one instance at least penetrated
to the furthermost resources of the
government, and that the no-uncertain
significance of its echo has brought
trepidation to the hearts or those fed
oral allies of the trusts who, so long
have winked at the robbery of con
sumers and the arrogance of the "great
interests" which corner and control the
necessities Of life.
Traced to Tariff Laws
Prominent men in Chicago say that
While the government is compelled by
public protest to investigate the beef
trust, the trouble has oome at the
worst possible time, for there are thou
sands who will trace the high price of
living to no other cause than the new
AUirich-Taft-Cannon .tariff law, and
inasmuch as this tariff law, outrageous
as it is declared by party leaders to
be has caused an ominous breach in
the Republican party and alienated it
from some of its best leaders, many
predict It will lead to the quick un
doing of the Aldrich combine and their
.U any rate, the recent actions of the
beet and other trusts show Roosevelt's
warnings to have been correct, and
prove that If such combinations are
,i (lowed to reign unbridled the masses
of the American people will Indeed soon
be "stripped, spanked and spat upon"
without recourse to law. And any
confirmation of Roosevelt's principles
|g a slap at the present Republican
administration, which so far has cone
directly contrary to the policies laid
down by Taffs predecessor, sanctioned
by llie people.
In the memory of Chicagoans there
ha» In the past been but one notable
effort directed by the government
ttjrainst the beef trust, when, last year.
United States District Attorney Sims
conducted an investigation into
Charges of rebating made against Mor
ris & Company. At that time officials
of tlie Northern Pacific company iVere
interrogated, but nothing was ever
done and the public by this umo liaa
a,most forgotten the incident.

will entail a series of staggering fines,

The result of the former investigation

ployed by Morris & Co., and at that
time some of the. officials of the Na

•7— Criminal Prosecution
It Is expected the criminal prosecu
tion will be taken up first.
While the movement to combat the
high price of food continued its spread
today, there is little indication of a de
crease in the price of meat.
Milwaukee, which reported a big de
crease in prices quoted by the butchers
yesterday, today showed a general re
duction in many places. None of the
other cities reported any reduction,
The most notable acquisition to the
ranks of the anti-meat cause' came
from Louisville, where twenty-one
lodges of a fraternal organization
adopted resolutions that all members
refrain from eating meat more than
once a day during February.
The Women's Trade Union, league
and the Building Trades council of St.
Louis announced today that they would
take action against the high price of
meat next week. I
Indianapolis, St. Paul and Toledo re
ported that attempts to launch a cru
sade against prevailing high prices in
those cities had failed. .
From St. Paul came the report that
Labor, Commissioner McKwen had de
clared the inhabitants of Minnesota
were too prosperous to feel the effects
of the high prices..
Apropos of the movement, the Orange
Judd ■ Farmer says 1909 was the most
prosperous year ever known in the
livestock industry, according to the
annual census review of farm stocks.
"The total value on all classes of
livestock in the country on January 1,
1910, was $4,880,068,000," says that
paper. "The Increase during 1909 was
the greatest ever recorded in twelve
months, amounting to $560,000,000.
"There is an Increase In the numbers
of all classes of animals except beef
cattle and hogs, showing an increase in
numbers and a heavy advance In aver
age values per head at the same time.
Cattle, other. than milch cows, total
780,000 head, ■ worth v on :an ! average
$20(78, each. The. number of sheep is

a marked decrease in numbers, reach
ing only 44,996,000, but the price per
head, $9.15, is the highest on record.
"With the exception of beef cattle,
every class o*animals showed the high
est average price ever recorded."
W. P. Apmadoc, a state senator of
Illinois, announced today that he
would move for a legislative inquiry
into the subject.
Probe High Prices
"At the reopening of the session
Tuesday," said Mr. Apmadoc, "I will
introduce a resolution providing that a
committee be appointed to investigate
the cause of the. high prices for food
Organized labor of Chicago joined
actively yesterday In the war on high
prices of meat and other commodities.
The Chicago Federation of Labor
several weeks ago decided to take up
cudgels against high prices of meats,
and the appointment of a committee
was authorized to investigate.
President John Fttzpatrick yesterday
announced the personnel of the* "high
cost of living" committee.
The first committee meeting will be
held next Wednesday to outline the
scope of the investigation and to
divide the work among various mem
bers. At the suggestion of Professor
Hoxie, secretaries of all affiliated
unions will make investigations among
the membership touching the cost of
living two, five and ten years ago, as
compared with the present cost.
The purchasing power of $1 today, as
compared with Its purchasing power
two, five and ten years ago, will be
used as a basis.
Not only meat, but all articles of
food, will be included in the Inquiry.
It is likely that the committee , will
delve into a comparison of rent figures
and the cost of clothing.
Government reports also will be
studied, with a view of arriving- at a.
scientific conclusion. It is likely that
the committee will ask experts in
various lines of trade to give informa
tion on the subject.
NATIONAL PACKING CO.
BLAMED FOR EXCESSIVE
COST OF FRESH MEATS
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22.—Officials of
the department of justice believe the
operations of the National Packing
company of Chicago, which is con
trolled by three of the leading pack
ing houses there, exert a dominating
influence on the price of fresh meat
throughout the United States, and
have a direct bearing on the price of
cattle on the hoof.
The department feels warranted,
therefore, in the effort to punish per
sons responsible for such a state of af
fairs, and to dissolve any combina
tions in restraint of trade.
While the permanent federal injunc
tions issued some years ago restrain
ing seven packing establishment! from
combining to control prices are still
operative, the move about to be made
is believed necessary to establish con
trol of the situation.
"Undoubtedly if the farms were
raising more- meat the price would be
reduced," said Secretary Wilson of the
agricultural department today in com
menting upon the widespread boycott
against meat products,
■There are not enough people on the
farms raising food and too many pe.o
ple are going to the towns to be fed.
"Three quarters of a million people,"
satd Secretary Wilson, "are coming to
ill- United States annually from
abroad. They do not go to the farms,
Where they might help raise food for
the nation. Farmers cannot get help.
Tlie foreigners go to the cities, and
tiny have to be fed. The cities pro-
duce nothing to eat, although they do
produce something- to drink."
"Have you any plan for Inducing
people to go to the farms where they
may help to raise food?" the secretary
'-.Jim Hill says they will go there
when they get hungry," said the secre
tary after shaking his head in reply
to the question.
FIGHT FOR CHEAPER MEAT
GETS WARM IN NEW YORK
NEW YORK, Jan. 22.—The fight for
cheaper meat waxed hotter in New
York today. Pledges to abstain from
meat eating for thirty days or more
were extensively circulated and signed,
and indications were that the local
movement will reach impressive pro
Formal action by many organized
bodies is expected to follow the general
trend among families to cut down their
meat consumption—a movement said
already to have reduced sales at the
retail shops 50 per cent.
Women are taking the lead in the
local agitation. Today arrangements
were being made for a great mass
meeting of women in Union square at
noon next Tuesday to protest against
the high prices of foodstuffs and con
sider "meat abstention pledges.'
