Butchers Who Refuse
to Sell Imported Meat
BERLIN, Oct 23. Hundreds of Berlin
housewives joined in a wild riot today
herausn tha hutchers in the municipal
markets refused to handle, meat imported
so as to reduce he cost of living.
The principal trouble occured In the
Wedding district, which is entirely inhab
ited by worklpg people. Hundreds of
women, who went to the municipal mar
ket found that the butcners had agreed
not to deal In meats imported by the
municipality. Then they stormed the
butcher's stalls, seized all the native
raised meat, trampled It on the ground
and fought with the butchers.N The po
lice were forced to close the market to
stop the riot.
The prices of meats are so high In
Berlin that the government recently gave
permission to the city authorities to bring
In and sell meats from abroad at the city
markets and to control the prices. The
butchers at first agreed to handle these
meats, but late last evening announced
they had decided on a general boycott
of them in the twelve municipal markets
ot Berlin.
The municipality declares its intention
of punishing the butchers by cancelling
tneir licenses.
