STRONG ARM METHODS OF ANGRY WOMEN Meat Prices in Germany Leading to Market Place Riots HORSE STEAKS Kitten Pies for the of High Tariff Berlin, Sept. meat famine has reached a stage where the government has been compelled to discu'ss some action which the urgent fear of some seriovis popular disturb- ances. The markets in Silesia this have been Uic scenes of. violent combats between the farmers and buyers, the classes especially j in the mining districts believing tho government refuses to permit the I cheapening of meat, in order to j oblige the junker is, tlie. 'Agrarian noblemen with big estates. iThctpoptilar wratli is vented even up- on small farmers, who suffer as much os ordinary consumers From protec- tion and the consequent.inability to cheap imported fodder for their ca'ttlc. In some Sicilian towns the Markets arc stormed by gaiigs o! wo- ir.vh infuriated by the prices of coun- try provisions. They smashed irp thousands of dollars worth of fresh and hurled vegetables at tlie re- tailers' heads. When a few peasants tried to interfere, the Women seized them and either ducked them in the nearest, pond or plunged, them bead downward into barrels of eggs. Fin- ally the police, with drawn sabres, cleared the market places. At Wed- nesday's markets tue stalls in all'the principal markets were guarded by one policeman to each stall. Horse Steaks Six and fifty- six horses were -killed and passed for food by the city [inspectors during the first six months of the year .in Ber- lin alone. r .VKitten Pie Berlin owners are looking anxiously, after their cats which'tins year are being killed for food'instead of mere- ly for their skins, "'as in most years. Boycotted: Meals Trades unions, in suveral of the mining Westphalia, have boycotted the meats altogether, and the butchers in the poorer quarters have been compelled to close _ their shops. The Government's Dread The government fears the approach- ing elections for the Prussian parlia-l nienfc will occasion serious rioting inv j less the are pacified, j but tlie real reason why tlie govern- ment is loath to open the frontiers to frozen meat is less its anxiety to pro- pitiate land proprietors for fear of their open threats io oust' Chancellor; Hetbman Von llellwe.q as they ousted' Hohcnlohe, Caprivi and Bnelow, than' anxiety lest it should never again be j possible (o clcsc tlie doors to cheap meat without causyu; rioting in all the big cities. The ardent protection- ists also fear that a break ot the .former protection will .prove an ir- reparable breacli in Germany's tariff wall. Favor Lower Tariff The big manufacturers' concerns in western Germany are' no more an- xious to see the tariff C.ST pecially to English and American competition than are the Agrarians. j On the other hand, chambers of com- merce, merchants guilds and other as- sociations representing' tradesmen as well as the millionaire concerns ap- peal daily.for a reduction or suspen- sion the tariff. The Berlin merch- ants' guild, one of the sanest arid Tnost respected institutions of Eur- ope, sent a special and urgent ap- peal to the government on Wednesday urging the removal of duty on Am- erican tobacco.
