Grand Jury Probing at Lincoln.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 28. From tho
fact that A. E. Hargroaves was ono of
tho witnesses before the grand Jury,
it Is generally believed here that holy
Is engaged In making an Investigation
into the workings of tho alleged meat
ttust. In a recently published article
Mr. Hargroaves made tho assertion
1 tltat four local representatives of tho
big packing houses have a close
( vorking agreement; that the prices
made by each of them aro absolutely
the samo at all times and that a
dealer whoso credit Is not good with
one of them cannot purchase from any
of the others. It Is nlleged that a
dealer who does not pay up his ac
count promptly nt the end of tho wek
Is not only barred from further credit
from the house with which he has
been dealing, but that an order placed
with either of the other houses will
i not be filled. It Is further chnrsed
thnt there Js absolutely no competition
In the matter of prices. Mr. Har
groaves Is a wholesale grocer.

nine bushels of beets at fifty pounds
to tho bushel, making 2,450 pounds
from tho one-eighth acre, nnd at this
rato a full acre would produce 49,000
pounds, or twenty-four nnd n half tons
