Commissioners Lock in Verbal
Wrangle Over Proposed
' Regulation of Inde
pendent Plants.
City - Commissioners Ringer and
Butler, formerly foot ball stars,
kicked the ball in the city council
chamber Thursday morning during a
discussion of inspection at the inde
pendent slaughter houses.
- "You take it for granted that every
thing done under the old administra
tion was bad. That has been your
attitude, and also the attitude of other
commissioners," was Butler's opening
, mrusr. ai Kinger.
"Mr. Butler is a little thin-skinned
' in his reference to tV nld uni-;t H
did not extend the courtesy of show
ing me nis resolution on this matter
oeiore ne ottered it to the council,"
Ringer replied.
"It comes with poor grace for
Ringer to speak about courtesies in
view of the fact that before this coun
cil was organized no courtesies were
extended to me," was Butler's retort.
'--' Ringer's Position.
Commissioner Ringer recently
stated that city inspection of inde
pendent slaughter houses had been
inadequate; that the proprietor of one
place told him that no inspection had
been done at his house since May, and
he also jstated that diseased cattle
were being bought and sold.
Indefinite charges made by Ringer
were offered as an argument to ex
plain the need of reorganization of
this inspection department.
Commissioner Butler insisted that
in justice to these packers the council
should hold an investigation to place
blame on guilty persons and remove
the odium which has been placed on
all of the independent packers.
"Let us go into this matter thor
oughly and we will find an appalling
condition," Mr. Ringer stated when
the council decided Thursday to pro
ceed with the investigation.
-"We demand an investigation.
These men want to know if there is
any ground for these chargfs," Attor
ney Henry Murphy stated in behalf of
the packers.
Hoffman Stumped.
John Hoffman has a plant at Twenty-fifth
and M streets. He was
stumped when Commissioner Ringer
referred to "moral terpitude" in a
question when Hoffman appeared as
the first witness. Witness offered to
explain "lumpy jaws" and "downers,"
: but he had never encountered any
"moral terpitude" while carving cows?
Hoffman stated that other independ
ent operators told him that lumpy
jaws and downers get out of the yards,
but he would not buy that class of
" - When Ringer referred to the "vis
cera" of cattle, Hoffman wanted to
know whether the commissioner
learned that word in college.
"No, I learned that during one day's
visit to the independent plants'Ring
er replied.
Hoffman testified that all meat sold
by him bears city inspection stamp,
in addition to having been inspected
on the hoof by federal inspectors in
inc yaras.

Nebraska Banks Do Part in
Red Cross Drive SaysFolda
A "rumor" out in the 'state that
400 state banks in Nebraska'are not
contributinc to th RH
refuted by E. F. Folda, vice president
of the Corn Exchange National bank
of Omaha. The rumor came to The
Bee in a letter from N. E. Armstrong
of (Broken Bow.
4 "Many banks may not be contribut
ing to the Red Cross as banks," said
Mr Folda, "just as many groceries
and elevators and railroads are not.
But every individual banker is doing
his part for the Red Cross. It must
be remembered that a bank cannot
give any . of its funds to the Red
Cross or any similar object without
hirst getting permission from the
state banking department or, in the
case of national banks, from the
comptroller of the currency. On top
pMhis it has to be approved by the
banks board of directors. Many
state banks have taken this action in
Nebraska. Others prefer to subscribe
as 'individuals."
