In other words, if we had paid $13.13, we would have made no profit. Or, if we had received a quarter of a cent per pound less for dressed beef we would have made no profit It is doubtful whether any other business is run on so close a margin of profit. This is bringing the producer and the consumer pretty close together—which should be the object of any industry turning raw material into a useful form. This remarkable showing is due to enormous volume, perfected facilities (packing plants strategically located, branch houses, refrigerator cars, etc.), and an army of men and women chosen and trained to do their special work. This, and many other points of interest, are found in the Swift & Company Year Book for 1919, just published which is brought out for the public as well as for the 25,000 Swift & Company shareholders. The Year Book also represents the packer's side of the Federal Trade Commission investigation, upon which Congress is asked to base action against the industry. Many who have never heard the packer's side are sending for the Year Book. Would you like one Merely mail your name and address to the Chicago office and the book will come to you.

THE HOPE PIONEER WITH THE LAWMAKERS Bismarck, N. I).. Feb. 10.—By the passage of House Bill 4S in the senate Saturday, the new freight rate bill for North Dakota becomes one of the league measures now really enacted and lacking only the governor's signa nature in order to become a law. That it will be promptly signed there ap pears to be no doubt. In fact, the measure appears to have had little op position even from the minority mem bers of the legislature, as was evi denced by the fact of its passage by the senate without debate and with but one dissenting vote. Eight senators absent and not voting, left 40 votes to be cast affirmatively for the bill, which is sufficient to render its emer gency clause effective, as it had al ready been passed with the emergency clause in the house. This measure relates to freight rates to be charged on within-state ship ments only, and is designed to bring the rates charged for carrying freight within the boundaries of North Dakota down to something like a parity with the rates which Minnesota shippers enjoy. That it will make the rates considerably lower than shippers of either state can secure on shipments crossing state boundaries is relied upon to make it effective in developing business within the state as against that which will require shipments from outside. Senate O. K.'s Income Tax Bill. The senate on Friday endorsed an other important measure submitted by the league, when S. B. 87 came up for third reading and final passage. This bill, the income taxi measure, is de scribed by league writers as one of the most important measures before the present assembly: and a considerable feeling of elation manifested in league r.ireles at its passage by the upper house with only nine votes re corded in opposition to it. Two of the upper house members who are counted as on the minority side swung over to the majority .in support of this bill. The measure provides for the raising of state revenue by taxation of the incomes of persons, corporations and joint stoi-k companies: classifying and graduating incomes for the purpose of taxation: providing for exemptions and deductions in certain, cases: pre scribing methods of assessment and collection of the tax. and the neces-. sary penalties for failure in compli ance with its various provisions. As passeij by the senate it carries tite enieriretn-y clause. Some Interesting Measures Up. Not si lev.- highly interesting meas ures have occupied the attention of one or the other of the two houses during the past uvek. as well as of the reading public which lias been endeav oring to following tiu various move ments of the bodies in reference to these bills. House Bill fit!, the State "Enforcement league's "anti-moonshine" bill, is one of those to which consider able interest hits been attached, especi ally as a metfiher of the house oppos ing the measure took occasion to intro duce a rt solution making very sweep in.' charges .v:al::st lie v. C. W. Fin vai!. an Enforcement league worker, for alleged improper methods used in :1n effort to enforce the passage of the bill. Thi resolution, introduced by Kcpre-ieiitar ve Alberts, was referred to the committee on state affairs, which, it pointed out. has much work aiiead of thi. from which it may be inferred that it is difficult to judge when rln' rei.!:it:on will be reported back to the house. House Passes "Anti-Moonshine" Bill. An eleniet't of the special interest attached to the consideration of 11. B. r,—the measure above referred to— arises from tie fact that the house on Tueda\ gave the measure exhaustive consideration in committee of the whole, and reported ir back to the house where it wu "killed" by the in definite postponement route at the regular esion Wednesday afternoon, the villi1 against it/ standing ."1 to 40. On ill" following afternoon, however, notwithstanding the allegations made against one of its backers, the house again had the bill up for considera tion. and this time it was passed by a vote of t. to IN. and is now ready for tie- consideration of the senate. The bill makes ii a crime to have in one' possession any liquor or any "still, worm, powder, tablet or other device for the manufacture of such liiptor." :'.lld is believed to be one of the most effective measures known for enforc ing the "bone dry" provisions of the prohibition law. Highway Bond Bill Withdrawn. A bill recently introduced providing for the bonding of the state in the sum of !'-».oihi.tmMt fop improvement of roads and highways was withdrawn by its ,-ponsors early in the week. ing to the fact that it was found not to come within the provisions of the constitution. A substitute bill, spon sored by the senate committee on taxes and tax laws, is designed to open the way for the istiance of bonds fur this purpose, being in the form of a concurrent resolution proposing an amendment of the constitution to per mit road bond issues in sums not ex ceeding $.-J0.XH.UK0.

Newspaper Bills Introduced. Much interest is felt among news paper men in the action which may b' taken on Senate Bill 1?8, which wa« one of the last to come in under tht wire before the time limit adopted by the senate for the introduction of bills. This measure is one which has been considerably heralded by league writers for several weeks past, and is some times referred to as "Brinton's bill." The measure provides that "official papers" shall be chosen by ballot of the general electors at each biennial election, at (the same time and manner in which officers are chosen. There shall be, according to the bill, only one official newspaper for each^couuty, and all legal publications, whether for the state, county or any other public sub division. or for individuals or corpora tions. shall be required to be published therein. Any publisher desiring to have his paper voted upon as official, may have it designated upon the ballot by filing application therefor with the county auditor. A number of other newspaper and publication bills were among those to be introduced late in the senate: among them being one to provide that insurance state ments shall be published in two news papers in each judicial district. On Nursing and Medical Practice. The house took time Friday for the consideration of several bills relating to nursing and medical practice, or, more properly, the practice of healing, when it had before it a number of bills relating to these subjects, several of which have attracted considerable public attention. Under H. B. 170, which the house adopted To to 31. chiropractors are ad mitted to practice their profession in public institutions and hospitals with in the state: to issue birth and death certificates and to exercise all priv ileges now enjoyed by physicians and osteopaths in connection with the heal ing of diseases. S. IJ. SI. repealing the law making vaccination compulsory, was also passed by the house with but little opposition, and carries the emergency clause. S. B. SO, known as the county school nurse bill, makes it mandatory for counties to employ at least one quali fied nurse, who shall periodically ex amine the children in county schools and supervise sanitary conditions in and about school buildings. The bill passed the house without debate, OS to 1. Workmen's Compensation Act.

Anti-I. W. W. Bill Is Killed. The house on Wednesday killed the bill introduced by Representative Johnson of (.'ass county, designed to suppress "syndicalism." sabotage and various principles and practices at tributed to tile i. W. W. organization. The bill was intended by its author to supplant a statute already existing on these subjects, which was passed two years ago but becomes obsolete owing to the fact that it was made effective only temporarily as a war measure. Roll Call on Emergency Clauses Only one roll call is required to carry the emergency clause, according to an opinion rendered early in the week by Attorney General I.anger in response to an inquiry made by the 'house and senate. To be entirely safe on this point, however, the double loll call is being continued. These Are Up to the Governor The following are among' the bills that have passed both houses and are ready for the governor's signature: 11.
