THE BEEF TRUST REPORT
A whitewashed beef trust is no hot
ter than the old varicolored critter"
Council Bluffs Nonpareil.
Mr. Garfield seemed to forget that
tho people have a Bteak in the meat
controversy. Minneapolis Journal.
Some of the packers havo been run
ning at a loss, says Commissioner Gar
field. Let's take up a collection. Kan
sas City World.
Now the supreme court will have to
apologize to the beef trust for sustain
ing the injunction of Judge Grosscup.
The beef trust made only about 22
per cent on their private car invest
ment. The private car business seems
to be also a private snap. Birming
Accordingto Commissioner Garfield's
observation the beef trust wears no
horns, and the "disposition of carcase"
may be described as "mild and centle
Sioux City Journal.
Commissioner Garfield feels that he
can not consistently class the beef trust
with the bad ones. Perhaps the oil
trust, which he is now Investigating,
may be found to be a good one, too.
A medical journal has discovered the
fact that the beef trust works under
unsanitary conditions. However, It
seems to be strong enough to sit up
and take notice every day. Kansas
Commissioner of Corporations Gar
field shook with suppressed sobs when
he learned from the lips of the man
agers of the beef trust how they had
been abused by tire people. Cedar
If.it is really a fact that the net
profits of the beef trust last year were
less than 2 per cent on the captal in
vested, there is a mighty .sum of money
between the producers' narrow receipts
and the consumers' extravagant out
lay that is entirely unaccounted for.
Who has the money? Lincoln Journal.
Garfield's report on the beef trust
leaves that combination in restraint of
trade wearing a halo The beef trust's
record is perhaps like the drummer's
expense account; there are probably
things therein which are not visible to
the naked eye. Houston Post.
Commissioner Garfield has exploded
the popular belief that the packing
business, conducted strictly as such, is
immensely profitable. It is necessary
to engage in other occupations than
merely dressing beef to "make both
ends meet." Chicago Journal.
The beef trust, of course, will not al
low the whitewash of Commissioner
Garfield to be wasted. They may use
it in their sausages or, perhaps, In
their canned tongue, for which it
would an excellent coating. Anyhow,
they'll use it and use it advantageous
ly. For nothing is lost by the beef
trust, you know, but the squeal. Jop
Isn't there a tremendous leak In the
packing house business somewhere?
The beef trust has been accused succes
sively of beating down live stock
prices, boosting prices or the dressed
article and of underpaying labor. Yet,
according to Commissioner Garfield's
report, it is making a profit of only
99 cents a head on cattle. Who is get
ting the rest of it? Chicago Daily Re
view. Commissioner Garfield found that
some of the private car linea paid
profits at the rate of from 14 to 17
per cent. This is hardly to be be
lieved. If that was the condition of
the business the owners of the lines
would sell twice as much stock as has
been issued, and pocket the selling
price ' of the stock rather than the
profits. Garfield would have us be
lieve that some of these trust promot
ers do not know how to play cards.
