As the price cf cattle and corn

lishing to the world the depravity
of the packers, the farmers will have
good cause of complaint against the
administration. The people have
been taxed or years to pay tor a
cattle and beef inspection bureau
that has evidently shirked its work
and the republican politicians who
have had charge of it are either in
competent or have been induced by
the lieef trust to overlook their de
pravity. There should Ijc an amend
ment adopted to the meat inspection
law, that all those found guilty of
lax inspection, or those convicted of
packing diseased meat, or in filthy
condition, should be imprisoned
with a diet of embalmed beef and
their cells kept in the same condi
tion as they allowed the packing
houses to be in.

Thk house of represenatives, on

armor-plate trusts for its product
have made the ownership and oper

corporations to hold a monopoly of
things indispensable to the gover
meut, and thereby to fleece the pub
lie as the armor plate trust, the
powder trust, the beef trusts, the
coal trust, the steel trust, and others
have done, is an unpardonable sin
and shame. If the tariff rates on
trust products were reduced or
abolished there would le competiou

There can be no excuse, by those
in authority, for this scandal,

meat business and will fall heavily
on the stock-growers and fanners,
by decreased demand for corn and
cattle and its accompanying fall in
prices. Unfortunately, democratic
farmers who have voted to turn
the rascals out must suffer with re
publican farmers who have voted
to keep the rascals in and to per

has been the chief cause of this re

In the hearing before the house

respecting the Roosevelt charges
against the packing house, Dr. Mel-
vm, duel oi i ne nurcau oi annual

st.Ue the number of govermeiit in
spectors in Chicago. He answered
77 veterinarian, 5l stock examiners
and 55 taggers, making 1S1 in all.
Iu the whole service, he said, there
are 783. What have these- 783 fed
eral officers been doiugtor the past
seven years: l lave tiiey ail, or any
of them, K-en iu the play of the

In reference to the rate bill passed
recently by congress an observing
congressman has said that the
railroads can run a freight train
through it and touch it nowhere.
Thi is the result of the president sur
rendering to the railroad magnates
at the last hour. It is no wonder that
the conservative people of the entire
country are becoming distrustful of
the president's sincerity on the many
public questions in which he makes
grand stand plays.
A si'KCi.vi. trom Lincoln says
that Congressman Pollard has
sent word to his friends to call a

withdrawn. Judge K. P. Holmes
is a canidade for congress and he
probably will get the Lancaster del
egagation. It is sated that three
meetings have been heldduring th
last few days and the nomination
is to go to Judge Field of Lincoln or
Judge Hay ward of Nebraska City.
It is also said that Pollard's com
mittee cannot muster enough votes
to call a primary."

In view of the President's course
on the rate bill, and his compromise
last week on the meat bill, it ap
pears as if the policy of the White
House is to make great demands,
and then, if they cannot be secured,
take a compromise, knowing that
the compromise will guarantee to
the iMioplc some measure of neces
sary reform. The court-review
clause of the meat bill was stricken
out, but the taxpayers are compell
ed, according to the new arrange
ment, to pay $3,000,000 for inspec
tion. Hoth sides claim victory the
public thinks it's a dogfall.
