Other Kansas City Men Worked Up
Bartle Attempt to Qualify Hii
St. Loci3, March 27. The pork pickers
of 8t Louis signed and presented the fol
lowing to the members of the Merchants1
Exchange, who are in special session on
Whereas, It was stated in the public prints
that William G. liartle, a member of the Ex
change, testillsd before a committee of Con
gress in reply to a question by the committee:
"Did you. while you were packing hogs la St.
Louis with a large Southern trade, use cholera
bogs and put them into the food product?"
and answered "I did and so did erery other
Wherxas, It is also stated that on cross ex
amination said William G. Bartle testified that
he had cut hogs into hams. eta. knowing them
to be diseased, just as every other packer did;
Now, therefore, believing these statements
to be false and knowing that such charges, if
not decidedly denied, will cause untold losses
not only to the material interests of the soun
try, for these reasons we respectfully ask your
board to investigate the matter and if the re
ports in the papers are correct, expel not only
William G. liartle. but all others who assisted
in this fearful libel on the honor and integrity
of a very large number of the members of this
To tins tho directors returned answer
that the packers should make specific
charges and state what rule of the ex
change had been violated.
William 6. Bartle, the much-abused pork
packer, who returned from the East last
night, said: "In the telegraphic dispatches
from Washington under date of March 24,
rotating in part to what I stated before the
House Committee on Agriculture, in refer
ence to the packing of pork in this coun
try, there is an error as to what I stated
concerning Jacob Dold & Sons, of Kansas
City. I never suggested or intimated
that the foreman of that firm
had recently bought 2,'JOO smothered hogs,
'.vhich were put into the tanks and went
into prime steam lard, rendered by that
firm. The substance of what I did say was
that the foreman of Dold & Sons, who gave
his name to me as Martin, said that while
he was foreman of unother concern be had
tanked out in cue season for that house 2,
200 smothered hogs and put the product
amongst prime steam lard. In justice to
Dold & Sous, I must say that their packing
house is far above the average for cleanli
ness. Their foreman took me through the
bulking room and I take pleasure in saying
that I found the same in .first-class order
and condition. I have been misrepresent
ed through the public press as to my testi
mony before the Congressional Committee,
but whatever I then stated I am ready to
verify in whatever form the investigation
may come. The people are deeply concerned
in this matter irrespective of tho wishes or
interests of contending factions."
A SERIOUS REFLECTION.
Kansas City, Mo., March 27. The pork
packers or Kansas City are very indignant
at tho libelous statement made by Yv". O.
Bartle, of St. Louis, in tho lard hearing at
Washington on Saturday. They state that
the assertion that Jacob Dold & Sons used
diseased and "smothered" bogs in the
manufacture of lard is net only absolutely
false but is a serious reflection on every
packer'in the city as well as an injustice to
the Stock Yards Company. Bnrtle's state
ment is not only denounced as an unwar
ranted misrepresentation by packers in
this city, but Chicago and Louisville
packers have taken up the matter and will
also make it quito warm for the man from
St. Louis. The local packers will hold a
meeting to-day, which will be called by
Chairman Fowler, and the matter will be
discussed and equitable action taken.
At the offices of Jacob Dold & Sons yes
terday Mr. Jacob Dold, Jr., and his man
ager, Sir. Jennings, were busily engaged
in preparing evidence to be presented to
the House committcoat the next meeting
of that body. Mr. Dold said: "The wires
are in a wretched condition in the East to
day, and we have been unable to get any
thing from our representatives at Wash
ington. We have telegraphed our lawyers
to obtain a verbatim report of Mr. Battle's
statement beforo the committee, and until
that is received wo can do nothing of im
portance. We arc starting at the base of
the matter and will get all the evidence,
and then rush it through. We regard this
as a slander upon every packor here and
also upon Kansas City."
Messrs. Armour and Fowler called upon
Mr. Dold yesterday. They were consider
ably worked up over the matter and ex
pressed their feelings very forcibly.
Thomas Rooncy, the official meat in
spector, makes a statement on oath that
Bartle's assertions were false.
JACOIl UOLI, R., INDIGNANT.
Wicuita, Kan., March 27. Jacob Dold,
Sr., who is engaged on the construction of
a packing house in this city, when asked
regarding the statement of W. G. Bartle,
of St. Louis, before the House Agricultural
Committee, said : "I wish to tell the public
in general that the statement of Bartle is
not in any respect true, and that he is an
infamous liar. Wo have never bought a
smothered hog, but wc have sold them to
dcssicaling establishments wheu they have
died on our bands. Nor have we etrei
bought any hogs that knowingly were not
well and healthy. And moreover we never
offer any thing for salo that we will not
uso ourselves. Bartle must know that
what he said was not true false in every
respect. We have already authorized our
attorneys to commence legal proceedings
against this calumniator, as such lies will
injure any mail's business lor the tint

Struck Against Stereotype.
Erie, Fa., March ST. The uuion compos
itors in the Jlorntrng Dtupateh and Jlermto
offices struck to-day against the use of ste
reotype plates of certain annual official
statements, published in several papers,
where the type is set in one office and ste
reotypes of the matter ara sold to the othei
offices. They demanded that the type be
set in each office separate, or measure tho
plates and charge for them at regular
rates or 'composition, less the cost of ste
reotyping. WgCer Thaa tirever Cleveland.
Larned, Kan., March 27. An official dis
patch from the General Land Office at
Washington was yesterday received by
Receiver Bickcl ordering the removal of
Register Brownlee and the closing of the
United States land office until the confirm
ation of the newly appointed register.
Brownlee refuses to surrender the office
keys to Mr. Bickcl and seems determined
to play the part of register, the President's
executive order summarily deposing him
to the contrary notwithstanding.
