distance from any outside market There
are three packing-houses in the state, but
the proportion of hogs packed Is not in
proportion to that of cattle and sheep, the
annual shipments of pork products from
tho East aggregating about 100.000,000

growth in trans-Pacific commerce, accom

meat by the Orientals and by the Euro
pean colonies on that side of the ocean.
This opportunity has been recognized by
home capitalists, who have Joined bands
