reduce the H. C. of L. called to con

about twenty people. Governor Catts
had issued invitations to about twenty

his usual able way the Governor is

The Packers commonly referred
to as the "Big 5" are now flooding
the mails with press agent stuff ad
dressed to the newspapers of the
country, in which they put up very
plausable sounding arguments ' to
show that they 'are operating on a
small margin of profit and that the
retailers are the ones who are respon
sible for the skyward tendency of
food prices. Their statements would
sound more plausable if it were not
for the evidence at hand showing that
they not only control the meat supply
of the country; but that they are now
reaching out and practically control
the supply of poultry, eggs and canned
fruits and vegetbles. Monopoly never
