ilin.dim more cattle were In the
United States than the department of
aKviciiltnre had estimated, l!),7G2,0u(
more sheep, 29,500,000 more hogs, and
7,827,000 more horses were in the
United States than tho department or
agriculture hnd estimated. This Is
wild guessing and shows the need of
nn annual census.
"Our condition Is bettor In some W
speets than it was. For instance, we
have succeeded In obtaining federal
inspection of stock. Formerly if you
shinned :i.r or -Us hundred head of
sheep you were liable to be hold up
at every state line you pnssed by the
Ktate Inspector, who charged you a
fee of two cents a head to pass your
stock. This made a tax of from 8 or
10 cents a head by the time you had
gotten to Chicago. Now you may se
cure by applying to the bureau of an
Imal industry, without cost, the in
spuetlon of your stock by the federal
inspector, who issues you a clean bill
of health which covers every state
in the Union.
The Shoddy Issue,
"V failed to pass the anti-shoddy
bill. Payne of New York, the chair
man of tlie ways and means commit
tee in the house, would not bring It
up. We wirod the prcBldont, sent pe
titions by the score, called on Payne,
but all to no avail. The trouble was
that Ilunnn Is largely Interested in
the shoddy mills ut Cleveland, O.
The shoddy used in the United States
is equal to the wool produced by 42,
tWO.OOO sheep. If we only knew our
strength we could control legislation
and business. There are 8,000,000
votes In tho livestock business, with
a capital of $4.r.00.o00,000 invested.
More than the sugar ami steel Indus
tiles combined, more than the whole'
railroad Interest, yet we submit to
their extortion. Just one instance.
'Refrigerator cars cost $1.25 jier
100 from Pendleton to Chicago, or
$S.75 per car of 22,000 pounds., In
addition, you pay $45 for icing the
car. This requires 10 tons of Ice In
transit and costs about $10t
This makes a total -cost .of $315
per car. A -icar oi grain of . equal
weight costs $12l and costn but $10

"On all territory east oi" Utah com
mon points the railroads have In
creased the tariff 15 per cent beside

and their average time on stock
trains is but eight miles ier hour.
This causes a shrinkage In weight ot
stock and a heavy feeding expense,
We are seeking to have passed a law
making our stock trains run 20 miles
an hour, tho minimum speed. This
will prevent shrinkage to a lurgo ex
tent, and save so many feedings.

qn cattle averages $10 a head less
than last year, or a shrlnkago of
$08,000,000 in the value of our cattle
from last year's price. There Is n
shrinkage on the value of sheep of
$80,000,000 and $120,000,000 on hogs,
while dressed meat remains tho samo

ing tholr millions from you. Every
enrcas of beef yields them a profit of
$f.43 on the by-products alone, while
the meat yields them a profit of $4.50,
making $10.94 profit on each beef
carcass. Armour slaughters from 7,
000 to 10,000 a day In his various
plants, so you can so his profits.
"There Is no excuse for reducing
tho price to tho producer and keep
ing It up to the consumer, except that
they can do so and they will do so as
long as they can.
"The solution lies In the Incorpora
tion of the packing company to which
the stockmen themselves will own
and operate. Last week we incorpo
rated in Phoenix, Ariz., for $5,000,000.
Fifty-five per cent of this stock will
be In tho hands of the board of direc
tors, nil of whom must be stockmen.
For $500,000 we can put up a plant
that will care for 2,000 beeves, 4,000
hogs and 3,000 sheep a day, and we
can pay $5 a head more for our stock
and lower the price to the consumer,
and still make a good profit. The
stock will be $50 per share. There
will he two directors from each state.
Tho directors will be elected at Kan
sas City on the 21 st of this month.
With this competition we can raise
the price of stock on foot to a more
profitable basis for the stockgrower."
