Packers' Test Cost
.' Figures Are Said to
' CHICAGO. Feb. .-Every dcUtl of the
method used hi figuring ths test cost
of dressed beef -was explained by wlt-
easea at the packers' trial today.
Tb government charges that the teat
cost la the keystone- of the business sys
tem which made it possible for the pack
ers to maintain the alleged combination
ht restraint of trade described In the in
dictment. That th test cost wss a fle-
ttttoos figure obtained by making an
adequate allowance for by-products, prac
tically uniform among the big packers.
and enabled tbem to conceal large per
centage of the profits made on dressed
beef is one of the principal allegation-!
made by the government.
Noise made by workmen outside Judge
Carpenters court room made It necessary
today to move the trial to another pan
ot the building. By a coincidence the
trial waa shifted to the court room In
which the Standard Oil company was
