as a whole we are on the same footing and would act together in self During the last few days I have received many letters from the packers of Iowa and tho and ttaro Is a friendly expression of

Therefore it can be easily seen that If Chicago roads refuse to grant the relief asked the packers have a way to get it by diverting the traffic to this southern i This arrangement would attract the stock of the west t Iowa and Missouri river where it could be transformed into the product and shipped to this new Considering these the western packers are not entirely at the mercy of the Chicago
