Dealers in dressed meats are . here In large numbers to take part in the annual convention of the national retail butch ers' association, whioh will be in ses sion for the next four days. The prin cipal question to be considered is the competition that tbe 'retail trade has encountered from the "Big lour" pack, ing concerns Armour, Swift, Morris and Hammond. It is claimed that these companies have been more than usually aggressive during the past year in their enoroachments upon tbe reta'l trade, and that tbe Armour company in Kansas City runs cars to Chicago, slop, ping at every little station and retailing meat to boarding houses, hotels, etc., thus paralyzing the local trade. Thij is but sample of what the retailers consider a rank injustice, tbe traiTia in tbe larger oities being damaged by similar methods in proportion to their commerce. It is cot improbable that a boy cot may be declared against the offending companies by all tbe mem bers ot the retailers' association. Enthusiastic riders of San .
