MURDER STILL MYSTERY
Police Make No Progress in Investi
gation of Huber Case.
The police have made no progress
whatever in the investigations in the
mysterious murder of Alexander Huber,
who was shot from ambush by an un
known person while bound for his home
at Mountain View, on- the Cornell road,
at a late hour Tuesday night. A Jury
impaneled by Coroner Flnley yesterday
heard the testimony of those who found
the body and of a physician who exam
ined the bullet wounds, and brought in
the stereotyped verdict that "the deceased
came to bis death at the hand of a per
son or persons unknown."
Huber, who was a Swiss dairyman, Is
thought to have been killed by one of
his countrymen as the outcome of a row
that occurred in a local saloon last Sat
urday night, The Swiss are said by the
police to be very reticent relative to all
their affairs, and nothing can be learned
from any of them that throw any light
on the affair.

What the Beef Trust Has Done
said What It Is Doing to
Injure the Standard of U. S.
This Loveberry Ordinance was writ
ten up by the unscrupulous agent un
der the direct command ot the two
packing concerns who had U. S. Gov
ernment inspection of meats. The
agent acknowledged It. the packers
acknowledged it. The ordinance pro
vided that the output of these two
packing concerns including the meats
stamped by the fishermen should be
exempted of and above suspicion. But
, the Inspector was to keep a strict
supervision over all other slaughter
ing in the city, and any farmer who
shipped a veal, a porker, or a beef to
the city must send it to one of tiie
packers' plants to be Inspected, and
where the packers could deal It out to
one of their- pet markets. The un
scrupulous agent said he knew he
could control the office of City In
spector, and shades of David Harum!
he wanted a horse and buggy to help
him. There was to be no recourse
from his position and he could "throw
down" the products of the small in
dependent packers and make them lose
