IT JUST HAPPENS SO.
3So Cause Can be Given for the Great
Supremacy of Chicago in
THE DRESSED BEEP INDUSTRY.
Armour and His Fellow Magnates Are on
Their Dignity and Muse
TO MEET THE SENATORIAL COMMITTEE.
Attachments May be Issued Which Will Compel
The Senatorial investigating comniitte
commenced its examination into the dressed
beef interests of Chicago yesterday. Armour
and others who had been summoned as wit
nesses failed to appear. A syndicate of
cattle raisers to ship the animals to Europe
and kill them there is suggested.
Chicago, September 3. The dignity of
Chicago's widely-advertised packers and
dressed beef merchants struck the members
of the Senatorial Committee rather forcibly
this morning. "When Senator Vest rapped
on the table, calling Senators Farwell and
ttoke to order, he expected to see Philip
Armour, Kelson Morris, G. F. Swift, Frank
Vogel and John B. Sherman.Vice President,
of the Union Stock Yards and Transit Com
pany, march through the door and take
Beats previous to being put through the
mill by the inquisitive Senators.
But the heavy tread of none of these gen
tlemen disturbed the echoes in the corridor,
and down at the clerk's desk no one could
say that the gentlemen expected had been
near the Grand Pacific to-day. Senator
Coke drew his white hand through his still
whiter beard and looked meaningly at Sen
ator Farwell across the table.
Senator Vest, being Chairman, had a few
Remarks to make, but he concluded to re
serve them for awhile, to see if anv of the
- - -
millionaire meat merchants would appear
later. Harvey L. Goodal!, the publisher of
the Drovers' Journal and Daily Sun, at the
stock yards, was the only witness who had
been summoned that was present. The Sen
ators thought perhaps a quantity of facts
about the meat business could be obtained
from the editor, and he was placed on the
Stand. Mr.Goodnll did not have the figures at
his tongue's end, and submitted Ashley C.
Haollowell, an employe, to the mercy of the
In reply to a question by Senator Farwell
the witness said that his estimate showed
that the receipts of cattle at Chicago during
the last eight months had been the largest
in the world, e.ther at this or any other
market Previous to this year the receipts
of I8S8 made last year the banner year of all
before that time, but the receipts thus far
for 1889 ran very much ahead of those of the
first eight months ot 1888
"Have vou the figures?" asked Mr. Far
veil. Tes, sir. They are 297,000 head of cat
tle." "Can you tell from what part of the coun
try these cattle came?"
TIGUEES roc IT.
"About 25,000 were from Texas, 11,000
from Montana. Wvominc and the North-
n est, and the remainder from the central
States, Illinois being in the lead."
"Can you give any reason why the St.
Xouis trade should not be increasing?"
"I am unable to state, unless it be on ac
count of the lact that St Louis has a repu
tation for being a little slower than Kansas
City and Omaha in getting business."
"How has the business kept up at St
Louis, Kansas City and Omaha?"
"At Kansas City and Omaha the business
lias steadily increased, but at St Louis the
trade has barely held its own."
This bronch't Senator Vest to his feet in
an instant Said he: "Did you never hear
of Jte 'Hvcners combination?"
' "be witness admitted that be had some
12 years ago.
Stnator Vest "Well, did you hear that a
clique of Chicago shippers made a combina
tion with some of the railroads bv which
cheaper rates were obtained from Chicago,
snd that by this St Louis business was
The witness hid heard some talk of such
, The Senator pressed him harder and
'brought in the name of Kelson Morris and
Allerton and some others as having been
parties tothe "eveners" combination. The
examination over, a recess until 2 o'clock
was taken. Before adjourning, howejver.
Senator Vest made a statement He wanted
to let the people know the exact object and
purpose of the Senatorial Committee. He
alluded to the fact that Secretary "Williams,
of the Stock Yards Company, was to have
been present this morning with a list of the
stockholders of the company, but that he
bad disobeyed the order of the Senators.
"I do not know how the other members
of the Committee feel about it," said he,
"but I for one am not willing to close this
examination here until 1 have learned all
there is in this meat question."
Then he read a list of names, including
those mentioned at the beginning ot this
article. Said he: "This committee does
not desire any trouble with any of these
gentlemen whom it has summoned to ap-,
pear for examination, but they are not
here, although duly subpoenaed. These
men arc directly interested in the result of
the hearing, and it is from them we can
obtain onr evidence. I will say now that
they must be here and testify. There is no
way out of it"
THEY MUST COME.
The committee adjourned and word was
Bent to Messrs. Armour, Swift, et al, that
they must obey the Senatorial summons.
Charles F. Ingersoll was the first witness
in the afternoon. He said that when he
first went into the dressed beef business
there was twice the quantity of dressed beef
sold to Eastern buyers than there is now.
"Under the old system there was a creat deal
more competition. Out of a 1,200 pound
steer witness believed about 675 pounds of
good beef could be obtained. That class of
beef would bring from Zi to 4 cents a
"When in the last ten years were cattle
"In 1882. They commenced going up
Jn 1881. and reached high water mark in
June, 1882. A rapid decrease began in
1885, went lower in 18S8, and reached the
lowest figure in 1837. In 18S6 there was a
slight improvement during the summer
months, but that was only lor the best grade
"Kow," said Senator Vest, "it has been
said here that the enormous fall in the price
of cattle in 1882 was by over production,
but I see that since 1882 there has been a
very marked decrease in the supply, and
Etill the price went down. How do you ac
count for that?"
A DARK MYSTERW
"I hardly know how to account for it,"
replied the witness. After a few more ques
tions the witness was allowed to go.
Joseph Fastburne, a stock yards commis
sion man, said he saw a very marked change
in the markets of late years. "While the
supply of stock increased, the number of
buyers showed no proportionate increase.
"How do you account for the fact that
the number of buyers have not increased
with the supply of material?" asked the
"I attribnte it to the dressed beef men."
Albert McCnrdy, another stockyard enm-
jiiis&iuu man, saia ne, loo, noticed conquer
able of a change in the manner of doing
business in his trade of late years."
"Do I understand you to Jay," asked the
Chairman, "that inn mnrt nt t(ii -into
arc bought bv the dressed
"Would it not be possible for these men to
manipulate the markets.
'Tes, I think they have it in their power,
but as tar as my observation goes thev do not
"That will do, sir."
INTO THE SECEETS.
Fred J. "W. Rowland, a former chief
bookkeeper and confidential man for Kel
son, Morris & Co., was the next witness.
"Can you state," asked the Chairman,
"whether you know of any agreement or
combination between Kelson, Morris & Co.,
Armour & Co., Swift & Co., and others?"
"Am I obliged to answer that question?"
"l'es, sir; you are."
"Well, they have made a combination
"A combination of what?"
"A combination to sustain the price of
dressed beef. They agreed on certain prices
in certain States, and there were certain
other States excluded. That is, in those
States they could pav any price tbey chose."
"Tell me," said Senator Vest "have you
been spoken to by anyone since you were
subpoenaed to come here?"
'Tes, sir: I was told by the Fairbank
Canning Company that I need not come
here at all, that it was not necessary."
THE rEOrER THING.
Mr. Bowland afterward returned to the
stand to suggest to the committee that bis
idea of the solution of the present difficulty
was the organization of a cattle raisers' syn
dicate to ship cattle to Europe and kill
"That's what I think," said Senator Vest,
"but that is what they can't do. They
haven't the money. If they had the $100,
000,000 'the dressed beef "men have, they
micht do it, bnt the producers have to get
their money as soon as they can,"
The absence of the prominent dressed
beef shippers who had been summoned as
witnesses visibly irritated Senator Vest
Several times during the afternoon he asked
if Mr. Armour or Mr. Morris was present
Finally a recess was taken until to
morrow morniug, there being no other wit
nesses present "With an impatient gesture,
Chairman Vest said: "Other witnesses have
paid no attention to our subpoena. Ot course
i am helpless without action trom the com
mittee. You gentlemen understand that we.
have power to issue a writ of attachment.
It's impossible for the committee to submit
to this treatment"
The committee then held a private con
ference to consider whether or not writs
should be issued compelling the attend
ance of Mr. Armour, Kelson Morris and
others before the committee.

"Washington, September 3. Hon. H.
L. Morey, of Hamilton, O., who succeeds in
Congress Colonel James E. Campbell, the
Democratic candidate for Governor of Ohio,
arrived here to-day. Speaking of the cam
paign in Ohio, he said that Colonel Camp
bell would make an excellent run, but
Foraker would be elected. "Campbell,"
said he, "is a sagacious and methodical
politician; he will resort to many tricks
and do a good deal in an indirect way. He
is the strongest man the Democrats could
Mr. Morey does not believe there will be
an extra session, and thinks that Major Mc
Kinley's prospects for the Speakership are
brighter now than they were three months
ago. "I do not believe," said he, "that
Major McKinley is opposed to an extra
session, on the grounds that it would oper
ate against his candidacy, nor do his friends
entertain any such idea."

Helena, Mont., September 3. The" for
est fires which have been raging in the
mountains for the last six weeks are now
supposed to have been extinguished by the
heavy rain and snow which fell last night
In the vicinity of Elliston and Ten Mile
snow to the depth of four to six inches cov
ers the ground. The fires raged fiercely
Saturday and Sunday.
Fifteen hundred people, it is estimated,
turned ont at Elliston and other places
to fight the fire. They worked all
night Saturday, and to 130 Sunday night
Many came out with scorched faces, burned
clothing and bloodshot eyes. Huge cinders
were blowing in the air, and the arrival of
rain and snow was never so welcome as it
was there. In the morning the tops of the
range was covered with snow, a very rare
occurrence at this season of the year. The
fire still smolders in the trunks of trees,
and may take a fresh start if the wind rises.
Many barns have been burned, as well as
The snow fall saved the town of Jav
Gould and the gold mill and mining prop
erty there. The fire at Ten Mile was a fierce
and disastrous one. Sturrock & Brown's
mill is a mass of ruins. The timber in that
section was fir, cedar and pine and was said
to be the finest forest in Montana. Hundreds
of the trees were four feet thick at the trunk.
There was one pile of logs which stood 20
feet high and 300 feet long. The area
burned is vcrv large, and the occupation of
the woodmen in that section is gone forever,
as everything is burned to ashes.
