Meeting on Proposed Co-operative
Packing Plants Idaho Stockmen
Expected to Be Present,
J. H. Owlnn, secretary of the Ore
gon Woulgrowors' Association, Ih In
receipt of a letter from Chnrles P.
Martin, secretary of tho National
Livestock Association, in which ho
Bays he will mako every effort to bo
present at tho coming mooting nt the
Oregon association at linker City, on
Sir. Martin Is now busily ongnged
preparing tlio details of tho plan to
organize the Stockmon's Co-oporatlvo
Packing Association, at Kansas City,
on September 1. and It may be possi
ble that his duties will forbid his at
tendance at the linker City meeting,
but It Is his Intention to como if pos
sible. Mr. Martin wishes to Introduco the
plan to the stockmen nt every point
in tlio West, and It will bo to their
mutual advantnge thnt ho bo present.
Ho Is the moving spirit In tho pro
posed plan, and while tho last meet
ing nf tile Natlonnl Association auth
orized the formation of this co-operative
concern, it is largely duo to Mr.
.Martin's zeal and activity that it bus
gained the headway that It has in so
short a time.
The Kansas City meeting is for tlio
purpose or formally organizing the
stockmen into n company, there being
no restriction upon tho membership,
other than that It must bo composed
of members of tlio Nntlonnl Associa
tion nnd bona tide livestock growers
of tho United States. Tho lirst con
dition of the organization will bo that
51 per rout of the stock of tho com
pany shall always bo hold by mem
bers of the Nntlonnl Association, in
order to shut out the beef trust from
tho controlling power.
At the coming stnto meeting the
matter will bo thoroughly discussed,
every effort will bo made to Interest
Oregon stockmen In the scheme, ns
It promises the quickest relief from J
the curse of the meat monopoly and :
the mnrket juggling of the commls- J
