RISE NATURAL AT THIS TIKE OF YEAR
Packers He Trr Cnnrsj
Enoncn far Meat Make
tm tor Their Conrt
While peopla all over the country are
taking up the cry against the packers, and
butchers in icime cities think they see In
the recent rise In the price of meats an
attempt on the part of the packers to
make the butchers and the consumers pay
the fines assessed against the packers
and also to make up for the loss In trade
to foreign countries as a result of recent
Investigations, the Omaha butchers refuse
to take that View of the situation. They
say the prices vary In seasons and this Is
not only the season when they are high,
but the packers are also paying more for
meats than for some time.
Because of the rise in the price of meat
some are buying grass-fed stuff which
they cut up and sell to their customers
rather than raise the price on corn-fed
tuff to a point whera they could make
some money. Butchers say the Investi
gation has caused no appreciable falling
off In their sales; that the people want
meat, must have It and therefore buy it
as usual, but they say they fear the
canned goods trade has been given a slap
which will take some time to recover. As
soon as the new laws are working, how
ever, the people will soon forget the trou
bles and will buy as they did before.
The packers are an abused lot," said
P. J. McManara, a retailer on Leaven
worth street. "We all holler at them,
but what Is the use. They have millions
Invested and must make money and I do
not think they charge us more for meat
than they ought. Some things they do
we cannot understand, but an analysis will
show they have some reason. There is
more demand for certain moats at dif
ferent aeaaons of the year, and prices
vary in season. Now all want mutton
and beef and the prices have to be raised
on the good stuff else people would not
buy the cheaper parts at all. They raise
the price In seasons to offset consumption.
Last week the hog market was up 20
centa a hundred and they dropped the
price of loins 1 cents a pound. Later
hogs dropped 80 cents and they shoved
up the price of pork stuff. As the de
mand is now for good meats they hold
corn-fed stuff at 7H cents and grass stuff
can be bought for 6 cents."
All Meat is Hlsh.
"All meat has been raised In price,"
said R. B. Welch, the Farnam street
butcher who does his own buying and
notices conditions carefully. "There Is
no meat that is not now high and lambs
have reached the highest known mark,
costing now 18.10 a hundred. I don't
think the packers charge more than they
ought for the meats for they are paying
a big prlca for everything themselves and
the farmer Is getting the benefit. Of
course when the demand is so great for
the best as It is now in hot weather they
have to raise the price a little to offset
the demand. Summer is a hard time for
meat, but still people must have meat.
Ice Is high and melts fast, whereas In
winter the lea bill is little."
BROKER PLEADS FAILURE
Responds to Fmbeaaleneent Charge
with Denial of Aay Criminal
E. E. Heald of 847 South Twenty-first
street, who recently had a commission
office in the Board of Trade building, was
arraigned before the police Judge Saturday
morning on the charge of embcsxlement,
the complainant being Ambrose H. Lee,
father of City Prosecutor Lee. Heald
pleaded not guilty and had the hearing set
lor Tuesday morning. The prisoner was
released on a bond of $600.
Ambrose H. Lee said he gave Heald $406
for twenty shares of Great Western stock,
which was not delivered. Lee further al
leged that when he called to find Mr. Heald
he found the latter's office closed and was
told Heald had left the city. The com
plaint was filed in the police court a month
ago and Heald was arrested Saturday
morning on his return to the city.
Mr. Heald said Baturday morning- there
was no criminal feature Involved in the
transaction, as the company he represented
failed. He said the matter is purely a civil

DAY ALLOWS K0 NEW TRIAL
Cenrt Declines to Reopen thm Case at
Weeherlr Aaralnst Cadet
Judge Day has overruled a motion for a
new hearing In the case of Weeherly
against Cadet Taylor and others. In which
creditors of Mr. Taylor are seeking to ap
ply the pi-oceeds of an accident Insurance
policy to the payment of Judgments against
him. Mrs. Taylor Intervened, claiming the
policy should have been payable to her
and asking the court to so change the
policy that this could be done. The Insur
ance company asserted It was against Its
business policy to make the benefits on
accident policies paynble to anyone but
the Injured. She also asserted that she
paid a part of the premiums on her hue
band's policy and therefore should have at
least a portion of the proceeds. Judge Day
adhered to his first ruling, that the policy
should be payable to Mr. Taylor and that
Mrs. Taylor would have a claim on his es
tate for the money, a little over $6, she
paid on. the premiums. lie refused a new
