Has the new live stock organiza
tion , formed a few weeks ago to
fight the beef combine and the
railroads , secured a representative
of the beef trust to fill one of its
most important offices ?
With the news from Chicago
that T. W. Tomlinson , who has for
several years been the official rate
maker of the Chicago junction
railway commission , has been ap
pointed secretary of the A merican
Stock Growers' Association , the
organization formed by Murdo
Mackenzie and SamueJ Co wen of
Texas and other prominent stock
men , the abovu question has been
asked by men inside and outside
of the new association.
Some go so far as to intimate
that the beef trust has foisted
Tomlinson upon the new organiza
tion and that by a stroke of politi
cal diplomacy expects to keep in
touch \ \ ith the movements of the
organization and thwart every
move that might result in amelio
rating the condition of the stock
men of the west.
Said a stockman today : "Tom
linson is hand and glove with both
interests and his selection would
seem to mean that the packers and
railroads had enough influence to
force his appointment. How it
was done , if there was any jobbery
in connection with the matter ,
those on the outside can't say. "
While working for the Chicago
Junction Railway Company , of
which John A. Spoor is president ,
Tomlinson is alleged to have made
the § 2 terminal charge , which has
been roasted by every big stock
man in the country ,
Tomlinson is regarded as one of
the best authorities on railroad
rate-making in the country and his
knowledge of such matters would
be of great use to the American
Stock Growers' Association in its
fight for lower rates. However ,
the fact that he has been in the
employment of a company owned
largely by the packers makes him
lose prestige in the eyes of certain
The assertion is made that Tom
linson will direct the attack of the
new organization against the rail
roads solely. Meanwhile , it is
said , the beef combine will con
tinue its work of oppression.
