MEAT PACKERS
ARE SUMMONED
BY GRAND JURY
EIGHT SUBPOENAS ISSUED FOR
HIGHER-UPS
MAGNATES MUST GIVE REASONS
FOR HIGH PRICES
Agitation Against Excessive Cost of
Living Results in Foodstuffs Be.
ing Obtained More Cheaply
in Chicago Markets
V [Special to The Herald.}
CHICAGO. Jan. 25.— Much mystery
surrounded the issuance today of at
least twelve additional subpoenas of
men believed to be high up in the beef
trust, and it was reported-tonight that
eight subpoenas issued this morning
had been serves late this afternoon,
but It was found impossible to learn
the identity of the men called on to
testify.
That the government prosecutor is
to call men high in the Industrial
•world of the middle west before the
newly impaneled grand jury was given
out tonight by a reliable source. Both
Armour and Morris are expected to be
called before the jury, and before the
Inquiry has ended it is predicted that
several score of subordinate officials
and accountants will have testified.
Agitators against the high cost of liv
ing gained their first victory here in
their battle against prevailing food
prices yesterday, when reductions of
3 per cent to 5 per cent were announced
In the wholesale prices of eggs, butter,
potatoes,, pork products and the better
grades of dressed beef cuts.
Big recessions also were made In the
value of live hogs, cattle and sheep,
and in the quotations on wheat, corn,
oats and provisions on the speculative
markets. ,
Of chief benefit to the housewives
■were the declines in butter, which
dropped from 32c a pound wholesale to
31c, and in eggs, which receded to 32c
a dozen, as contrasted with 34c last
■week. . .
The Elgin butter market recorded a
big slump. Butter men who had been
bidding as high as 38c registered bid*
of 30c on received offerings. The deals
practically decided the price.
Three reasons were given in Elgin
as to the cause of the decrease: Agi
tation against the high price of food
stuffs, a break in the corner on butter
held by butter makers and the decline
since the holidays.
In the Chicago wholesale markets
potatoes went down to 35c and 50c a
bushel, against an extreme price of 52c
on Saturday.
25,000 DINNER PAILS
WILL BE MINUS MEAT
FOR NEXT THIRTY DAYS
PITTSBUKG, Jan. 25.—Many a
•workman's dinner pail will be short
its pork chop, ham sandwich and other
meat dishes today when the 25,000
workmen in Pittsburg and vicinity
■who have pledged themselves, will be
gin their thirty-day period of meat
abstinence.
With a start made by the boycot
tcrs, who have succeeded In knocking
down the price of cattle at the stock
yards, much encouragement is given
those who hesitated to join the ranks.
Now other food products are to re
ceive the attention of the consumer.
Butter and eggs in a few days will be
under the ban the same as is meat at
present. Fearing this, butter dealers
began to scale their prices yesterday
and in some instances the prico was
6 cents lower than the day previous
for the best creamery. Eggs, too, while
they are the cold storage brand, are
beginning to come down in price and
as much as 2 and 3 cents a dozen was
lopped off late yesterday.
MILK, EGGS AND BUTTER ARE
REDUCED ON STOCK EXCHANGE
NEW YORK, Jan. 25.—Milk, eggs
and outter led the procession of re
ceding prices in food products here
today. Nation-wide agitation aided
by potent local influences have brought
about the drop. Meat, too, is on the
decline following a greatly reduced
State anti-monopoly laws are to be
invoked in the movement to combat
the trusts that have advanced food
prices. Today a special grand Jury
whose office it will be to consider the
effect of combinations among dealers
fti foodstuffs was sworn in.
While It is expected first to deal with
the alleged milk combine, the meat
question is likely to be sifted strongly
and possibly the whole scope of the
food situation will be taken in during
Its probing.
Milk is down a cent a quart already
on at least two big dealers' routes;
butter in the best qualities has
out 6 cents a pound and eggs are off
E cents a dozen in local markets.
Storage eggs that have been selling
as "strictly fresh" at high prices are
no longer put out as such, say the big
■wholesaler:-".
SOLONS DISCUSS AMERICAN
HEN AND HER PRODUCTS
WASHINGTON, Jan. 25.—Aside from
an intimate discussion of the American
lien and tier products, the feature of to
day's inquiry into high food prices by
a house committee was the statement
by Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief of the
bureau of chemistry in the department
of agriculture, that sinister influences
had accomplished the repeal of the pro
vision of law relating to enforcing ef
ficiency in cold storage of food prod
uct*.
Dr. Wiley said the elimination of the
appropriation for this work had greatly
hampered his department in protecting
the public from deleterious food prod
ucts.
In reply to questions Dr. Wiley stat
ed he was sure the cold storage people
themselves had nothing to do with It,
and of course the consumer was inno

The appropriation was omitted last

LABOR COUNCIL OF OAKLAND
REFUSES TO WAGE BOYCOTT
OAKLAND, Cal., Jan. 25.—Taking
the stand that the boycott would only
hurt the farmer and retailer, the Cen
tral Labor Council of Oakland last
night refused to pass a resolution pre
sented by a member of the council, de
claring a boycott similar to that
started in the east, on meat, butter and
eggs.
The labor council Is the centra! body
of all the unions in Alameda county,
and tliis action means that the meat
boycott will not receive union support
In tliis city.
la discussing the matter the delegates
to the council stated that the boycott
would Injure the industrial system, the
producer and retailer, and would only
give the trusts a better chance to put
still higher than they ore at
present.

DENVER, Jan. 25.—"Whereas. The
price of meat has soared far beyond the
reach of the laboring man,
"Resolved, That we, the Individuals
of organized labor in Colorado, refrain

beef centers somewhere near where it

This is the substance of resolutions

Federation of Labor. Beginning to
morrow, 50,000 laboring men in Colo
rado, it is estimated, will be on the

Local meat dealers, however, profess
not to be alarmed and assert that they

MAY BOYCOTT MEAT
AT MASS MEETING
Charles Edward Russell and Mrs,
Frances Noel to Address Gath.
ering at Labor Temple
Tonight
A monster mass meeting of protest
against the exorbitant prices exacted
by the beef trust will be held tonight
in Labor Temple hall, 538 Maple ave
nue. Whether a "meat strike" will be
called in Los Angelesr will be decided
definitely tonight. Mayor Alexander,
Stanley Wilson, Dr. Sherwin Gibbon of
the health department, Mrs. Francos
Noel, W. A. Engle, Arthur Hay and
others will speak. The meeting will
open promptly at 8 o'clock.
Mrs. Noel, who is known as one of
the most ardent sociologists in the
west, has made a deep study of the
food problem and will have some inter
esting information to impart. She has
gained most of her knowledge from
coming in contact with the very poor,
who feel most the oppressive conditions
brought on by the food trusts. She is
familiar with packing house conditions,
having been a resident of Chicago for
some time.
Charles Edward Russell, the maga
zine writer to whose efforts the first
indictment against the Chicago pack
ers was returned in 1903, will be pres
ent at the meeting tonight and prob
ably will make a brief address upon
conditions existing. This noted muck
raker recently came to California to in
vestigate freight rates in California for
an eaatern magazine.
It is the belief of Mr. Russell that the
packers themselves are not responsible
for the enormous increase in the cost
of living. He says the overcapitaliza
tion of corporations is one of the main
ins for tht! increase in prices of
all commodities. The increased capital
demands an increased rate of interest
or profit and makes itself felt through
an increase in the cost of things. Mr.
Russell says the beef trust is more or
less a victim of circumstances and is
forced to extort high prices in order
to keep alive. He says that by putting
all tin' packers in jail the price of food
will not be lowered. His remedy is to
eliminate the element of profit in com
merce.

BURYING PROTESTS
MORE SENSATIONAL EVIDENCE
ADDUCED AT TRIAL
Government Prosecutor Outlines The.
ory of Case Against Former Con.
gressman and Land Com.
missioner at Portland
[Associated rross]
PORTLAND, Ore.. Jan. 26.—When
the Blue mountain forest reserve was
being projected Binger Hermann, as
commissioner of the general land of
fice, had letters before him charging
frauds in Oregon and California, but
did not inform the secretary of the in
terior of these charges, as the latter
would have investigated them, thus In
terfering with the creation of the Blue
mountain reserve, in which Hermann's
friends were interested.
Such was the theory outlined yes
terday by F. J. Heney, government
prosecutor, in Hermann's trial in the
federal court here on a charge of con
spiracy to defraud the government.
Testimony as to the admissibility of
the "commissioner" letters, however,
went over until tomorrow, over the
strenuous 'bbjection of the defense, the
prosecution succeeding in securing the
evidence of correspondence between
Hermann and the late Senator John
H. Mitchell, carried on during the lat
ter part of 1901 and the fore part of
1902. These letters referred to the Cas
cade forest reserve and exchanges for
land therein, made by F. A. Hyde &
Co. One of these letters contains the
postscript, said to be in Hermann's
handwriting:
"I am giving my personal attention
to this matter. B. H."
Letters Significant
Defending this line of evidence,
Prosecutor Heney asserted that these
letters are significant when compared
with a so-called "Zabriskie letter,"
written in answer to one from J. A.
Zabriskie early in 1902, in which Za
briskie called attention to alleged
frauds in the Cascade forest reserve,
said to be perpetrated by "Hyde and
Benson."
In the Zabriskle letter Hermann as
sured Zabriskie that only two ex
changes had been made by Benson,
and that both of these unquestionably
had been legal.
The prosecution contended that Her
mann purposely ignored Zabriskie's
reference to Hyde and also that Her
mann possessed the alleged knowledge
that Benson was a silent partner in
the firm of J. A. Hyde & Co. Heney
also declared this correspondence was
collateral evidence, not alone that
Hermann was fully advised that frauds
wero generally being, permitted in
forest reserves, but in taking no steps
In the alleged information that Ben
son was bending his steps to fraud, in
spite of citizens that called his atten
tion to them.
The prosecutor declared further that
during this period Hermann was with
holding from the secretary of the in
terior the fact that his attention had
been called to specific cases of fraud,
for fear it would delay the creating of
the Blue mountain reserve.
The balance of the day was devoted
to the introduction of a mass of docu-
mentary evidence, most of it concern
ing the part taken in the senatorial
election of 1901 by Mays and other
Oregon politicians. The hearing will
continue tomorrow.

STOCKHOLDERS ALLOWED TO

Preliminary Injunction Secured to Pre.

solidated —Decision Inter.
esting and Unusual
[Associated Tress]
TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 2".—Judges
Lanning and c'ros^ In the United
States court here today dissolved the
preliminary Injunction previously
granted by Judge Cross, restraining
stockholders of the Utah Copper com
pany from holding a meeting to pass
on the proposition to merge with the
Boston Consolidated Copper company.
The case has been before the court
for two days. The proceedings to
prevent the merger were instituted by
Col. Enos A. Wall and Charles W.
Graham, stockholders -of the Utah
company, who claimed that the merger
would work an injury to the Utah
company, and that it was in violation
of the Sherman anti-trust law.
Application was made to the court
on behalf of the Utah company to
have the proceedings dismissed on the
ground that Graham had been hired
by Colonel Wall to take part In the
suit.
Judges Lanning and Cross, in de
ciding the case, did not dispose of
this point. They dissolved the pre
liminary injunction on the following
grounds:
First—Any violation of the Sherman
anti-trust law WOUI have to be prose
cuted by the government alone and
the only remedy individual stockhold
ers could seek would be through a
suit for damages.
Secondly—Other grounds upon which
Wall and Gruham based their suit had
been so fully answered and explained
by the affidavits filed on the part of
the company that an injunction could
not be gi - nted without ignoring tha
well settled rules of equity practice.
The dissolving of the preliminary in
junction removes any obstacle from
the way of the Utah company carry
ing out the proposed merger which, it
is understood, is to include the absorp
tion by the Utah company not only of
the Boston Consolidated company, but
also the Nevada Consolidated Copper
company.
