lamb to appear ferocious and positively dangerous by contrast Have u Parade In Keserve In London the street display of the boasted strength and uncompromising de termination of the workingnien were posi tively ridiculous in their meagrenes The parades were not directed by either the trades unionists Or the Socialists and really seemed to have no definite object The Socialists and trades

Years Is at House Amends and Passes the AutiTrnit Bill and n Committee Agrees to Report n Comprehensive EightHour pointments oi Postmasters WASHINGTON CITY May chair man of the select committee appointed May 16 1S38 to investigate tha transporta tion products presented to the sen ate yesterday his lona delayed report It is extremely voluminous and complains t hat there was a decided disinclination of witnesses to say anything that would in jure tha dressed beef interests of Chicago j for fear the committee thinks of boycot ting A few enterprising men at Chicago with unlimited capital now control the whole dressed beef business of the counj try Beginning of the poiubijiatiou The Chicago combine began with the eouibiiiation ip 1873 which was made between the three trunklines between Chicago and New Pennsylvania Central New York Central and i by agreement chargedSI 15 for each car load of cattle shipped from Chicago to New York and allowed certain shippers iu CUi cago known as eveners 415 of this amount on each carload The result of this says the committee ivas to destroy the St Louis cattle market and to concentrate the trade at Chicago where it has since remained In 18TS the dressed beef business first assumed an important character and through its antagonism the evener combinutiouj ceased to exist j Practically a Trust I The committee say that whatever the evii deuce may show as to the existence of a close combination between the fourdressed beef firms at Chicago called popularly Big Four there is a com bination not to bid against each other either for purchase or sale It was imposj sible to get wituesses at Chicago to testify openly as to the facts but in private em ployes of the packing houses told members of the committee that there was no doubt a combination existed between the Big Four not to compete against each other When put on the stand as witnesses hey j shuffled and prevaricated to such a degree as in many cases to excite commisera tiou Modified Contradiction of Armour In investigating the branch of the sub ject as to whether beef cattle had been de creased in price while beef had not been made cheaper the committee examined Phil Armour He testified that no such agreement existed aud while the commit tee does not wish to contradict his state ment it is convinced that even without agreement among the principals their agents have brought about all the possible effects of such an arrangement The over whelming weight of testimony of witnesses of the highest character is to the effect that cattleowners going with their cattle to the Chicago aud Kansas City markets find no competition among buyers It is also human nature that h should be so and besides men who are known to have combined in one thing for their own ben efit will combine in another They are known to have combined in bidding for sale of beef to the government in forcing butchers in western cities to buy their beef and in refusing to testify before tha committee lieen No Over Production Armour is quoted as saying that over production was the cause of the low price of beef cattle but the committee quotes the agricultural department to prove there has instead so far as comparison with population goes been an underproduction Moreover it is known that the prices of choice parts of the beef have remained almost constant for man y years which would not have been the case had overproduction existed The fact the committee says is that the railways by discriminating against the shipment of cattle to any other place than Chicago by establishing stock yards there at which the charges for feeding etc are exorbitant on cattle in transit and by the general use of their tremendous power have brought about to a large extent the state of af fairs complained of Recomuiendutious In conclusion the committee says that it is impossible that Chicago should con tinue to control the market The rapid development of the countrythe movement west of the center of population and other influences are working surely to relief in this direction They recommend the prompt passage of measures they have re ported to the senate for negotiations with England for the removalof the strict quar antine regulations of that country a na tional inspection law a law prohibiting the monopolyin advance of shipment of the storage capacity of the steamships car rying cattle to Europe and the prohibi tion of the practice of railways by which they refuse to pay mileage to improved cattle cars carrying live cattle from Chi cago to the east
