BANK EXAMINER TESTIFIES IE
FORE GRAND JURY AT CHICAGO.
INDICATIONS OF INDICTMENTS
Wives of Two Employes cf Swift &
Co. Placed Under Bond of $10,000
Each Held as Witnesses in Case
They Are Needed.
Chicago. May 16. Members of the
federal grand jury Investigating the
business affairs of the beef packing
industries learned all the details of
the manner in which officials of the
Aetna Tradins company kept their
books. This company, it is said, was
the means by which the packers sup
posed to form the beef trust transact
ed their secret business. National
Bank Examiner Stareck. who for
nearly two mouths has been 6tudying
over tbe books found iu the six trunks
taken from the First National bank
building safety deposit vaults, has
completed his task and was before the
inquisitors. Through these books
found in the trunks, it is asserted t-at
the secret ystem of the Aetna Trad
ing company has been revealed and
all persons connected with the opera
tion of the company are known.
Mrs. Richard W Howes, wife of
the manager of the casins department
of Swift &: Co.. and Mrs. Irvine A.
Vant. wife oi the assistant treasurer
for the same concern, were placed
under $10,000 bonds each. The bonds
are to insure the presence of the two
women in Chicago as witnesses in the
event that indictments are returned
by the grand jury.
SAYS FIGURES DECEIVED GARFIELD
Omaha Packer's Man Declares Profit
on Steer is $8-
Omaha, May 1C. That the packers,
by a peculiar method of bookkeeping
and by juggled figures, deceived Com
missioner Garneld into the belief that
the profit nn-a beef steer did net ex
ceed 9S cents, is the published state
ment of a confidential man iu a South
Omaha packing concern. The actual
profit, he declared, is IS.
Comparative tables are given, show
ing the debit and credit accounts on a
bunch of seventy-one cattle actually
sold in South Omaha Friday. The
first table shows tbe figures as they
appear on the packers' books and in
the second table, tbe figures are re
vised to show the actual values. The
differences appear in charge for labor,
which is declared in the second table
to be 75 cents per carcass, instead of
52.75. as in the first, and in credits for
the byproducts. According to the
packers' figures, tbe offal is credited
at C5 cents per carcass, whereas, the
mar. declares, "one beef liver alone is
worth niort- than the credit allowed for
all th- oSal.'
Prcfsssor Ripley Testifies.
Washington. May 10 William E.
Ripley professor of economics. Har
vard universitj. was before the sen
ate committee on interstate commerce.
Hf claimed that under existing laws
there was nothing to prevent discrim
ination between localities and com
modities. He favored civing the inter
state commerce commission power to
fix rates. George B. Robbins of Chi
cago, president of the Armour Line
company, explained in detail the busi
ness of refrigerator cars. He assert
ed that these car lines were not en
gaged in interstate commerce. The
agitation tending toward the confisca
tion of private cars had deterred his
company from increasing their facili
ties. The Armour car lines did not
now deal in produce, save to a limited
extent in butter, eggs and poultry
The witness denied that the cars were
used to secure rebates.
