Nothing, would be more for the bene
fit of . these western cattle, sheep and
hog raisers than to pasa the Beverldge
amendment, say those who have made a
study of tha situation. ' Certainly the
manipulators of the market, through
the means employed by the trust, have
not laid awake nlghta to worry lest the
producers of food animals might fall to
receive their just share in the value of
the snlmal produced. .
Startling figures are being published
to show that tha trust has finally per
fected tha most remarkable machine, for
the manipulation of market prices ever
known sines the nation began. The
stock operations of Well street and the
schemee of members of the board Of
trade In Chicago, where the wheat gam

' Experts declare that the trust ab
solutely dominates the hog market,
systematically Inducing the shipment of
large numbers of hogs to Chicago upon
a. given day only to depress the price
so aa to yield the largeat possible profit
and leave tha owners just enough money
to get home, often not even doing that,
but .compelling the grower to. borrow
money for his home-going fare.
. Less extreme yet serious enough is
the predicament In which tha sheep and
cattle raisers find themselves when they
attempt to go against tha packing-houae
trust's finely adjusted market machine.
